affordable calculator watch

I bought this watch on ebay for about $12 (shipping included) a couple months ago. I love it. It’s the EXACT same model that I had 23 years ago in junior high. I can’t believe they still make it. It has stood through the test of time and that’s a good thing for a watch to do.

You can also purchase it at amazon for about $15.

With one touch of the button on the right, I have the calculator. It’s proven to be quite handy all over the place like at hardware shops grocery stores, and various retail locations.

Here’s the specs:

how many buttons do you have to hit to get to the stopwatch? I’d like a stopwatch. I have to hit too many buttons on my iphone to get to my stopwatch. I want a more immediate one. I brew tea at work, and I don’t stand by the microwave to wait for it. lately i’ve been using my iphone stopwatch, to keep time at my desk. But it would be nice to have one on my watch that I can set quicker.
