Casio F-94W

Casio F-94W

I just bought this tiny little Casio watch, the model number of this watch is F-94WA-8. The reason I bought this is because I’m looking for small and light watch. I’m getting tired wearing my G-Shock Mudman G-9000 because it’s so massive compared to my small geeky wrist and also I often feel the weight when I walk and make my hand stiff.

I was having hard time choosing between F-91W and F-105W. F-91W because of cult status and F-105W because of the beautiful blue EL. After comparing enough picture I think F-91W is ugly, especially with those tiny digits and blank space between day and date. I almost bought the F-105W, until I saw F-94W.

I immediately fall in love with that elegant black face with catching yellow eye. The size is as small as the previous two which is perfect for my wrist. It also available with another color variation. So far I’ve no complain using this watch. The light is decent enough, it’s uses same light technology with F-91. The alarm is loud. The battery should last 7 years according to Casio. The only problem I had is the seller give me wrong manual book and I have no luck finding it online. It’s no deal breaker though, since this is simple watch and easy to operate.

I can’t recommend this watch enough for anyone planning to buy F-91W since the function and features between these two are alike. But F-94W being more good looking. Although it might hard to find on other continent, since this is Asia only model.

UPDATE : After using this watch for a month, this watch is 9 seconds late according to online atomic time. Not bad at all considering Casio claim accuracy of this watch is ±30 seconds.

My First SAK

I’ve dreamed quite long time to own a Swiss Army Knife (SAK). One of the main reason it took me long time to get one is there’re so many to choose from and the other reason is because it’s quite expensive compared to Chinese made one available at dollar store.

There’s actually a model that I really sought after, which is Victorinox Cybertool 34 but It’s hard to find here in Indonesia. Lucky for me Bhinneka.com held a promotion celebrating Hari Belanja Online Nasional (National Online Shopping Day) which is marketing term for a certain week where all online retailer offer promotions and discounts to attract buyer, call it Indonesia’s very own Cyber Monday.

I bought a Black Victorinox Classic which supposedly the most common and base model. I must admit I’m a bit surprised how small it was when I received it.

However I find it handy since I can attach it as a keyring and I’ll never notice it in my pocket. I might need to buy larger SAK though, if my adventure days ever seen the light of day. Meanwhile this is perfect for my daily EDC which consists 15 minutes of scooter ride, 1 hour of train ride, 8 hours or more :) at work and back again, 1 hour of train ride, 15 minutes of scooter ride (Yeah, I know it sound boring. But I already grow to enjoy it).

So far I’ve used this moderately, mainly to open mail or package, cut a paper or coffee sachets and pull a hair with tweezers.

Cost : 99.000 IDR (usual price 160.000 IDR).
