Summary: This is a cool watch. I'm in my fourth decade and this is my fourth Casio calculator watch. My first was the 80's stainless scientific. I lost that one. The case is plastic, the band is stainless. Since the buttons are membrane you'll need a strategy for hitting them with precision. After 4 months of use it looks great and brightens up even the dreariest downtown day.
Summary: I've used Casio Databank 150 watches for many, many years. I got this watch to use at the office because it had a dressier look. While I am happy with this watch, it has one major flaw which has been mentioned by most other reviewers... the light sucks BIG time!! You can see the hour and barely see the minutes if you are dependent on the light. If you want to see the seconds, wait til you have another light source or forget it.
Summary: I'm an electrical engineer by trade. I was educated in the 80's and this was THE watch of the decade. I can't tell you enough how much attention I got from the people around town with this watch. Girls could spot me as an engineering student from miles away. And the gold, just told the world that I'd class and taste.
Summary: I am returning this watch. The band is difficult to snap closed, The numerals are difficult to read and programming is quite difficult as one of the buttons doesn't respond quickly. The last issue may be with this particular watch but buyer beware, it may be an inherent problem for all of this type of watch.I've contacted the seller Amazon "shopemco" they have approved the return less shipping charges (only fair) because the watch isn't realy defective it's just the way...
Summary: The best review that I can give this product is.....that this is my 10th such watch, altho my first from Amazon. I like the many functions of the watch and they're cheap enough that I buy a new one whenever the battery runs out. I can no longer see myself with a watch that only tells time.
Summary: Summary: a good inexpensive and easy to use useful watch. I've had various versions of the casio databank calculator watches since the mid 80s. When I was a teenager in the 80s I had the black resin version. In the mid 90s I replaced it with the chrome version. more recently in the mid 2000s, I replaced it with the newer generation databank DBC300, which turned out to be somewhat disappointing as it's very awkward to use and displays numbers in an odd format.
Summary: I'm a used car salesman by trade. My complete lack of secondary education means that I'm totally incapable of doing basic arithmetic in my head, but the nature of my business means I often need make quick financial calculations on the down-low without arousing the suspicions of my prospective customers. The buttons are easy to push, even with my greasy, yellow stained, dirt-caked fingernails.
Summary: The watch is beautiful and works well. I need the telephone numbers of my 8 children easily accessible, and this watch does the job just fine. I also like the ability to have an alarm go off for when I need to take my medication or when to move my car. What I don't like about the watch is the band. I would rather have a flexible metal band rather than the clip on on band.
