Mechanical world timer watches are fun: they harken back to an age before a $5 quartz-powered watch was more accurate than your Rolex; before people were so glued to their iPhones that they became physically stuck in the stairwell whilst mid-exit from the subway platform, trying to capture a Pokemon; before America was embroiled in a series endless forever-wars in the Middle East; before Disney owned the Star Wars franchise and could dilute the power of the Force with just one more movie starring an aging Mark Hamill.
Alas, those days are over. However, if it’s any consolation, this $25 Casio will tell you the time in 48 different cities (and 31 time zones) around the world for less than the cost of two cocktails in your average rooftop bar. Well, it would do all that for $25, but today’s your lucky day — today, you can get the this handy black world timer, replete with a 10-year battery, 5 daily alarms and 100m of water resistance, all for just $16 — a whopping 36% savings off list. And while it’s by no means as romantic as a mechanical world timer, let’s face it — it’s infinitely more practical.
