Casio Goes Retro With Forthcoming A100 Series #WearableWednesday
Casio is well known for affordable yet reliable digital watches. They are releasing an update from the vault that fans of Alien may recognize. More info and some history from Core77:
Rather than using then-common metal, the F-100’s resin body made it a lot lighter on the wrist. Digital watches made from black plastic then became ubiquitous.
The F-100 was futuristic-looking for the era, and in 1978, the production crew working on Ridley Scott’s Alien hacked two F-100s together for Sigourney Weaver’s character Ripley to wear as a prop.
