Casio Casiotron TRN-50-2A 50th Anniversary Watch

Casio released its first ever watch 50 years ago in 1974. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of its watches, it has released the TRN-50, a limited edition re-creation of the 1974 Casiotron QW02, its first watch, and the world’s first digital watch with an automatic calendar function. Limited to 4,000 pieces worldwide, the Casiotron TRN-50-2A is a perfect blend of retro charm and modern tech.
