Great Cheap Dive Watch
I say cheap, because you’re getting what you pay for, so caveat emptor.
This watch is a stylish timepiece that looks a lot like the Rolex Submariner a few hundred models emulate. The fit and finish are satisfactory, and with the on-board quartz movement should keep time fairly well. A nice watch for most of us Joe Sixpack-types who need a little more rugged timepiece than a $20 Timex, or maybe looks just a little nice. With a metal band, it would look quite dressy!
This watch is not a true diver. Many online complain it fogs internally when worn in the shower. I haven’t torn one apart, but the problem is often a crappy O-ring seal at the rear case and/or improper lube. Poor quality crown seals and crystals can also contribute. At this price point, I’m not expecting miracles and will avoid wet time with my copy. Those expecting a great dive watch will need to budget about $300 for a Seiko.
If you want a bulletproof diver that keeps precise time, you'll need to be looking at Omega, or Rolex--and not likely even reading reviews of this Casio piece.
Bottom line, this watch should do fine for most of us who need a decent timepiece that doesn't look like a hockey puck on your wrist and have to sweat their budgets. If this is you, here’s a good choice. They have them at most Walmarts, too!
