CASlo Easter Egg

1280px-Casio_F-91W_digital_watch

I've loved Casio watches since I got my first one a zillion years ago, in a century far, far away.

I've probably gone through a zillion and I still swear by them, especially the iconic F-91W (above), which currently costs $11.25.

It was introduced in 1991 — 27 years ago — and is still going strong, unchanged in its elegant simplicity.

The battery lasts anywhere from 7-10 years, often more.

The watch is said by Casio to be accurate to within ±30 seconds/month.

Anyhow, I was reading the Wikipedia article on the F-91W last night and discovered, buried deeply in the article, a wonderful Easter egg.

Take these steps:

1) Hold down the button on the right for 3 seconds

2) If the watch is a genuine Casio,

CASlo will appear on the display (above).

Totally made my week.

But then, it doesn't take much.

I also rediscovered a second Easter egg, which I'd forgotten about:

"Pressing all three buttons at the same time will fill all the cells on the LCD until any button is pressed again."

I wonder what Giacometti (my favorite artist) would have thought of her work.

If I were a woman I would so want these.
