Casio F-91W “Che-Casi”, (short for Cheap Casio) in Japan.

This Casio wristwatch, the F-91 watch, is sold in Japan for 990 yen (9 USD). It is probably sold in every other country as well.

A cheap watch like this is referred to as “Che-Casi”, (short for Cheap Casio) in Japan.
It is popular among young people.

Not only is it affordable, it also comes with lots of features.
Also, it has a battery life of 7 years. That is amazing.

In addition, it even surprisingly has its own Wikipedia article.
It is not that big of a deal, but you can check out the details here.

The other day, I bought a magazine for 980 yen, and this watch came with it.
980 yen for the magazine and watch is the same price as this watch.
Not only that, but this watch is different from ones that can be bought in a store, and comes in a cool moss green color.

Speaking of which, do watches ever get given as a bonus with magazines outside of Japan?
