Showing 1-10 of 55
Simple, low-cost & water resistant!

Summary: The pictures don't do this watch justice, it looks better in person; I've received compliments about how great it looks. I like the large numbers and it's very lightweight and slim. I work in food so I bought this watch because it is water resistant and so far no damage done while washing dishes and dipping my arm into a sink full of soap and sanitizer! The strap doesn't make me itch like some other watches.
Summary: Men's watches nowadays seem forced to weigh your wrist down. I myself have quite a few watches, Seikos and what not, all of which are so large on my wrist that I don't enjoy wearing them daily. This Casio watch is properly sized and fits very well on the wrist. The resin band feels sturdy for how thin it is and doesn't slide much around the wrist. Since it is adjustable there is no issue with fitting it to your wrist or removing links.
Summary: I have two expensive watches, each having cost well over $1,000, sitting in a drawer waiting for repairs which probably will cost over $100 each. Why bother, though? I'm way beyond having to impress anyone with an expensive watch, and my Casio, for less than $10, works just fine. No panic when it gets lost, no fuss when the battery runs down--I just replace it with the spare I keep on hand.
Summary: This is a "no-frills, disposable" watch. It is an analog watch; period; it performs no other functions; it doesn't even have illumination. And, based on past experience with low-end Casios, the strap will break in a year or so (long before the watch stops functioning) and at that point, the most cost-effective thing to do will be dispose of it and get another one. For the price, however, it is a great watch! Casios keep great time - within a few seconds a month.
Summary: I needed an analog watch to use for the CA bar (they do not allow digital watches). Checked on Amazon and this seemed to be the cheapest solution for something I was only going to use for 3 days. I don't wear this watch, so I can't comment on that. However, the numbers are big enough to see while it's on the desk. The ticking noise is not loud. Perfect for checking the time left on an exam, especially those that do not allow digital watches.
Summary: I bought this watch at the end of July, wore it once so it's received no abuse, now it's dead. No doubt the battery is dead. Even at such a low price I expect a battery operated watch to last a few years so now it's junk. My guess is the watch has been running on the shelf for years as it came running (without the little piece on the stem that keeps it stopped).
