A gold Timex digital watch // Photo: Nigel CoxSurprise! The digital watch, that geek staple of the '80s, is getting another day in the sun. Even more unexpected, it's not meant for your kicked-back, chinos-and-a-tee weekend look. We're digging the nostalgic tech vibe underneath a crisp suit or a sport coat on those days when you don't want to look so serious. Going digital won't destroy your wallet (that Casio is only $25), but there are a few rules to follow. Your new watch should have a metal wristband and a simple face—no heartbeat monitor, no electronic compass. And definitely no calculator.

Seiko modernized the digital watch with an E Ink screen—yep, just like what's in the Amazon Kindle.
