    Casio uses a variety of typefaces on their analog watches, but the humble Casio EAW-MQ-24–7B2 stands out for its use of Handel Gothic numerals, along with Casio’s own logo based on Eurostile Extended Medium. It’s also one of the cheapest watches you can buy, having been written about as such by Hodinkee’s Jack Forster.

    The product family includes several other similar models including the EAW-MQ-24–7B, which uses Helvetica. Truly something for everyone.

    I’m not sure what year to date this to. The watch is still available, but some of Casio’s watches have been in production literally for decades with no change.
