These days only people going for the ironic look would consider a gold digital watch a classy way to spruce up an outfit, but back in the 1980s they were cutting edge technology and high style. So Casio is bringing back a small collection of its swankiest designs in gold and silver for all you hipsters looking to complement your spats.

The silver versions are just $30 each, while the gold models run between $40 and $65. And as far as functionality goes, the watches are only smart in terms of style. All you get is basic time and date functionality, an LED backlight, a single alarm, a countdown timer, and a stopwatch. And yet another chance to look back and mock the 1980s.
