Whats wrong McFly? Chicken?

This watch Wednesday we are taking a look at the watch worn my Marty Seamus McFly in Back To The Future – played by Micael J. Fox

The watch is a Casio CA-50 Digital Calculator in a black finish.

Calculator watches first appeared in the 1970’s and were popular up until the late 1980’s.

The watch worn by Marty is prominent through out the movie, he is even looking at it on the movie poster.

This is an appropriate watch for his character, not only as it was fashionable at the time, it was very cheap, suitable for a school student.


Even though the calculator is functional and some models even allow you to save data, the buttons are extremely small and can be challenging to use.

There has been a resurgence in the popularity of vintage Casio’s and most models are still available to this day.
