Summary: I received this watch in a very timely manner. It was packaged well. It was a gift so had to wait to write a review. The only problem we had was that we had to take it to a jeweler to have it sized. I would recommend this product. Everyone thought at first it wasn't going to be a very nice watch due to them being from around for such a long time but he has received several compliments after they saw it.
Summary: He loves the watch and has had a Casio watch with a calculator for more years than he can count. After 20 years or so, the former watch broke...don't recall the details. The new watch was a real nice and welcomed surprise. The silver band dresses it up and he wears it when a dressy watch is more appropriate. He did have difficulty in changing the size of the watch band. Had it not been for another customer putting instructions out on this site, we may have sent it back.
Summary: I've worn Casio calculator watches for about 30 years. They have improved quite a bit over those years, reaching their pinnacle (for me, anyway) with the DBC 150, which I really liked. The biggest problem with them is that generally changing the battery kills the watch, so once the battery starts going dead, it's time to start shopping for a new one. Unfortunately the databank 150 has been discontinued, and hasn't been replaced by anything equivalent or better.
Summary: I am very pleased with the calculator/watch as a watch. It has an easy to read lighted display for day of week, hour, minute, second, month, day, year. As a calculator, I find the keys too small and the decimal point is practically impossible to see. I have little need for the dual time, databank, and alarm functions and have just ignored them. To repeat, the watch is very nice; the calculator is too small for me requiring a stylus and magnifying glass.
Summary: I couldn't beleive they still sell these but it turned up new in a box with a warranty as was exactly as I remember. The battery is supposed to last 10 years so I'll check back in with an update.
Summary: To my knowledge, Casio is the only company still making calculator watches, which are next to impossible to find in retail outlets, so I always turn to Amazon when looking for a replacement. I've lost track of how many I have owned over the past 20+ years, but they have all been tough and reliable.
Summary: It was fun to observe that this Japanese watch is "Made in China". A Casio Databank watch user from when they were first available many years ago this is my 4th watch of this design. The design makes a lot of sense because it includes a 25 item telephone number memory, a calculator, world time, 5 alarms and a stopwatch.
Summary: I bought this watch to replace one exactly like it that my husband has had for many years. When it finally broke he was so sad I went in search of a replacement. He was thrilled that I was able to find one exactly like his old favorite. The price was good, service excellent, delivery quick.
