The PHYS RFT-100WC watch by CASIO is equipped with the following special features:

  • With its ability to record stoppage time, the stopwatch function is ideal for football games. There are two stopwatches at the top and bottom of the LCD. Press the button and the two watches will start to count the time simultaneously. If the game is stopped, the top watch can be stopped simply by pressing the button, while the bottom watch will continue running.
  • The stoppage time is indicated by the difference between the top and bottom watches, when the bottom watch reads forty-five minutes.
  • The Start/Stop button is easy to operate and is designed to avoid error.
  • The large LCD enables the referee to check the time at a quick glance even when on the move.
  • The vibration function ensures that the referee is alerted when forty-five minutes have passed, even when the crowd is roaring.
