Enough said about retro shirts, retro shoes, bags what about other accessories like watches?

If you read my article about my summer gifts which included a Jessica Carlye watch (which I lost while hustling for a bus to the office), it made me go back to my Casio silver watch. Then again I had to buy another Casio but of course thrifting!

Watches may not really be in trend the way clothes, shoes and bags are but it’s an important accessory that needs to be carried around. If you notice quite well, people of class and style wear Casio- FACT!

I personally can’t do without a watch, it makes my wrist feel NAKED!

The retro watch making a huge comeback is the CASIO watch and I have been obsessed for 3 years. Although Daniel Wellington wrist watch wanted to take over but Casio has some qualities I rather stick to.

Some retro watches you must have known while growing up are;

  1. ETSY CALCULATOR WATCH
  2. G-SHOCK
  3. ROLEX VINTAGE WATCH

At least I’m that old to remember those..lol

Things you don’t know about Casio Watches:

  1. G-Shock is a line of watches manufactured by Casio, designed to resist mechanical shock and vibration. Its full form is Gravitational Shock
  2. Even Baby G watches are made by Casio companies
  3. Other Casio products are; cash registers, hand terminals, projectors, pianos, digital cameras and label printers.
  4. The Casio batteries last up to 10years (ah..long enough to meet my first child)

I went online for a new Casio watch as a “big girl” that I am, only to find out that that one-time “mallam watch” of a Casio watch price ranges from N6,500- N35,000 !. Nooo…I wasn’t  having it and neither was my bank account at the moment. I resolved thrifting and found two Casio retro watches I’m gonna keep rocking for life! 

I found the Casio WR10M and the Casio Gents’ Digital Sports Watch (black) which in total costs N2,500 (uhuh…say that again) when I could have spent N18,500 altogether! (Lucky me)

  1. Never knew you could thrift wristwatches. Where have I been? Usually so worried about…well… I really don’t know..durability I guess. Maybe that’s why I’m skeptical about all wristwatches that come cheap because I think “what gives”.

    Though I’m more the leather strap wearing wristwatch kind, no to chain or rubber, I remember I was crazy about Baby G wristwatches back then and I kept having to make trades with my brother for his as I never got one. Infact, the masculinity of the wristwatch was a plus!

    1. Yes babe, for the time being I’m sticking to these rubber watches but if they don’t last, I’d chip it in on my next post. My leather watch didn’t last so, only casio and chain watch for now. Thanks for stopping by dear
