The Nerd Watch Museum has hundreds of nerdy watch models.
Since your hosts are of the LCD generation, rather than LED, liquid crystal display models have been the focus of our collecting. Many LCD timepieces played an important role in the evolution of digital wristwear, and we are striving to present as many as possible in our virtual museum.
I’ve been watch-less for about 7 years now. My last watch was a Fossil pocket watch my wife (to be at the time) got me for my birthday, but I have to admit I owned (and wore) a bunch of these geeky nerd watches in my teens as well.
I can’t remember the exact models but they resemble the Casio AE-11, Casio CA-951 and a slim girly-type watch which I couldn’t find in the Nerd Watch Museum.
