Why is the Casio's F-91W watch the favourite of hipsters and the Extremists

Why is the Casio's F-91W watch the favourite of hipsters and the Al-Qaida, asks this article in Guardian. The article infers:
On the one hand, the model is consistent with a diehard 80s revivalism, the wrist-based equivalent of a pair of Ray–Bans and a taste for Kraftwerk – and, yes, there is even the requisite touch of irony in sporting a 20-year-old digital watch alongside an iPhone 4.
Further it conjectures that though we love new gadgets and new gizmos the mass really loves tradition and a certain solidity:

We are intoxicated by technological potential, but it's the primitive devices we reward with longevity.
