In 1957, its first year in business, Casio Computer Co. released the first in what would be a long line of technological landmarks from the company—the world’s first compact electric calculator. Of course, “compact” is a relative term (that early desktop model was multiple times the size of any calculator today) but it was a breakthrough design for the time, and staying on the cutting edge of portable electronics has defined the company ever since. Over the years, Casio’s electronic know-how has allowed them to branch out from calculators and into other products, including watches, digital cameras, and smartphones, all of which put portability and functionality at the forefront of their designs.
From quartz movement to luminous hands, we break down what makes a watch tick—and why you should get one.
