Geek Chic: Gold Casio Databank watch

casio databank gold watch twinsies

People often ask about my watch, a gold Casio Databank watch, that harkens back to the days of Pac Man and Rainbow Brite. I was inspired by the designer Rebecca Minkoff who wears hers all the time (even at her wedding!) and she told me to find it on ebay or Amazon. The deadstock on Amazon has been nearly depleted but there are still some there and  lots more on ebay for around $60.

Now, if you are really serious about punching all your contacts into your watch with the corner of your fingernail, you may want to spring for the version with larger memory.. at Saks Fifth Avenue for $130!  But then, if you did that it wouldn’t make you very smart, especially since that is the look we are going for here. Why would you do that!

For those who want the chunky gold watch look but want to leave the retro geekness behind, try the well-priced and popular Michael Kors watch line for treats like the ‘Sleek’ for $180.

And for those who just refuse to mess around, we have for you the Rolex on sale for $21,290.50.

  3. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Safari.
    Exceptional Blog!
