About this deal

To further ram home the point that the Casio F-84W is the more delicate model, the resin strap is cut differently. The third to last hole was the max for my six-inch wrist. With the ’91’ however, the fifth to last hole was where I called it.

Compared to the F-91W, the F-84w is smaller, thinner, and lighter. The display is roughly the same size, but the body of the watch itself is smaller than the F-91W. Casio F84W on my 6.3″ wrist Lastly, is the F-84W better than the F-91W? No. As said above, they're functionally identical. Both watches have the same quality to them. The reason to buy the F-84W is for the mid-80s styling and the fact it's slightly smaller, thinner and lighter. The time or date is adjusted by pressing the lower left button three times to bring the watch to time adjustment mode. The top left button is used to cycle through seconds, hours, minutes, month, date, day and normal mode. The right button is used to adjust the flashing value displayed. Unlike any other value, the seconds can only be zeroed. Should this happen before 30 seconds, the watch will zero in at the beginning of the current minute. After 30 seconds it will start the next minute as displayed. When the adjustments are finished, the bottom left button can be pressed once to return the watch to normal mode. Also, this is a very reserved design. The F-91W and W59 are slightly "loud" in appearance. Not the F-84W. It's very simple and pleasant to view. If you thought the F-91W was as retro '80s as it got with Casio digitals (which it never was since it was intoduced as a 1991 model), you were wrong. The F-84W is the king of the hill. The only thing more retro is a late 1970s era Casiotron model!

So, it’s pretty common, right? The Casio F-91W. After all, we’re talking about a watch that has been in continuous production since 1991 and, according to Casio’s estimation, boasts an annual production count of 3 million units. However, we’re not here to talk about the ’91’ today. What you see here is its lesser-known twin, the Casio F-84W. Nguyen, Khoi (August 31, 2018). "Casio F91W Review - Retro Digital Sport Watch". Gentleman Within (review) . Retrieved August 28, 2019. Interestingly, the light, mode, and alarm buttons on the F-84W are labeled vertically. This saves space and makes the dial look less crowded than the F-91W (which uses horizontal inscriptions). The design has quite a few noticeable changes from the F-91W. It has less text, and while some of the labeling is the same, it appears in different places on the F-84W.

The thin case sits so close to the wrist that it almost blends in. It’s so light that it feels more like a bracelet than a watch. You could definitely forget that you have it on. Another bonus of having a JDM watch strapped to your wrist is that you’re more likely to attract the right kind of attention. Those who know, know. Those who don’t, won’t. It’s as simple as that. Pop a Rolex on your wrist and you’re likely to attract ALL kinds of attention. The lower left button, labelled "Mode", cycles the modes of the watch: time display, alarm, stopwatch, and time/date adjustment.

On my own weighing scale, both watches weigh a recorded 20g, though. The measurements are pretty much spot on by Casio, as well. With my own calipers, deviations were within 0.1-0.2mm length and width-wise.

I wore both for the same amount of hours and trust me, while this may sound trivial, I found myself adjusting the ’84’ on my wrist more often than the ’91’. 6. Same, same but not the same (?)

I think that after many years of searching and finally having located it, I can take the confidence to affirm that I am the sole owner of a Casio F-91W model Made in Japan demonstrable with photos, and I can affirm that Wikipedia makes several errors in its Information about this model. This association was highlighted in the Denbeaux study, and may have been used in some cases at Guantanamo Bay.
