Summary: The Casio W-59 is a basic digital watch that has an alarm, a stopwatch, a microlight, and a 24hr time view. It doesn't look like the watch has dual time, but I never used that feature on a watch anyway. The watch is low-profile and sits on the wrist nicely. The display shows the time with the hour, minutes, and seconds, the AM/PM indicator, the day of the week, and the numbered day of the month.
Summary: Had the watch for about six months until the plastic strap broke in the middle of the band. The watch still works and I could attach a lanyard and link it to my belt or keys, but then it wouldn't be a wrist watch. The spot where the plastic broke down is at a odd spot considering I rarely took it off, and that it was rare if ever bent at that specific area. It looks as if I had an poor quality strap and was just unlucky.
Summary: Light weight; easy to set. Stop watch and alarm. Military time. Date. But the back light is completely useless. What a BUMMER! If you don't need the back light, buy it. Otherwise, buy a different watch.
Summary: I purchased this lcd Casio to wear as an on and off everday beater. It's a very durable watch and can be worn while showering and swimming and it's water resistant up to 50 meters. This watch has a very loud alarm and a stopwatch and a night light to view the time in the dark. It's very light and very comfortable to wear. Mine is very accurate and it loses about -1 seconds to -2 seconds per month.
Summary: I thought this watch was going to have a cereal box feel. I shouldn't have been so ignorant. This watch isn't a big clunky metal wrist watch, but rather a tight fitting, superbly built thing that tells time. Casio makes me want to consume and then digest the watch. Also Casio watches like these give you "Old Man" and/or "Geek/Nerd" cred.
Summary: This dependable workhorse has multiple useful functions and a long battery life. The price has actually lowered over the years. The wristband broke on my old one and I opted to buy a new one. Consider the Casio W71-1V Classic Digital Watch as an upgrade. Among other things, it looks smarter.
