"Lloyd's watch (shown in the bathroom stall scene) is a "Casino Alarm Chronograph" suggesting it's a fake of the already inexpensive brand, Casio. It also lacks any of the dials found on a real chronographic watch, along with the numerals 5, 6, and 7."

Might be right, but kind of a silly justification though.
It doesn’t have sub-dials because it’s chronograph functions are most likely in the digital section which is in place of the numerals 5, 6, and 7.
Pretty logical.

Duh!

When the movie producer uses the prop for a purpose other than fulfilling an obligation to advertise for the manufacturer (“product placement”), it is simply a prop. Sometimes it is modified so that it “seems” to resemble an actual name-brand product, but is altered to the point that the manufacturer of the product cannot claim their product was used without paying a royalty.
I think you’re looking at a Casio that was altered so that no royalty payment was entitled to Casio.
But don’t quote me on that.

I notice that when the second hand hits 12, the minute hand jumps one minute ahead. Are there any watches that actually do that, or did the film effects guys set that up for dramatic effect? I assume the latter.

Presumably they wrote “CASINO” on the watch to avoid any trademark issues with Casio.
