Dial Window Material Type stainless steel. Band Length 18mm. Model Number A168W-1. Water Resistant Depth 30m. Band Material stainless steel.
Nice retro watch. Very lightweight, although this is due to the plastic case. Easy to adjust settings, backlight is nice. The alarm beep is not very loud, pretty useless as a wakeup alarm. Accuracy so far good, advertised as 30 sec/month. The watch uses a CR2016 battery, which should be user-replaceable. But the manual advises that the watch comes with a demo battery that has a much shorter lifetime. Unfortunately some of the settings require to push the button that also activates the light, so this will shorten battery life if done too often. Watch does not adjust for leap years. Water resistance is minimal, hand washing and rain should be fine, but do not use it in the shower or while swimming (Casio website info). Watch band is easy to adjust, feels comfortable, but remember it is the kind that separates when unclasped, so be careful not to get it caught on something. One-year warranty.Read full review
I just love this watch. It's design and functions haven't changed much since the Japanese LCD digital quartz watch invasion of the 1970s. These things were ubiquitous for years. I played Space Invaders wearing watches like this. As I got older they seemed geeky, tacky, kitsch and cliché. Now, all these years later, I crave those very qualities as I was nostalgic for my teen years. Thankfully, Casio didn't change much with the times and, lo and behold, is the AW168WA... now with ElectroLuminescence! More than a blast from the past I've rediscovered what a great bargain watches like this are. It's super cheap, reliable, accurate, has an easy to read backlit display featuring choice of 12-hour or 24-hour time, a stopwatch, day/date, and alarm. I have watches costing much more that don't do nearly as much. So it's virtues are plentiful and make it a worthwhile purchase. It may not get you a single compliment... or even be noticed... but it will fit right into any setting and do its job without a fuss. It'll also do it for seven years before the battery needs replacing. This is the Chrysler "K-car" of watches. It's brilliant!Read full review
I have a dozen or so fine watches. I purchased this because of its place in the history of wrist watches -- the whole industry has come full circle from the quartz disruption of thirty years ago, to the present day, with the finest handmade mechanical movements ever available, some costing many thousands of dollars -- and this watch, to me, represents the undeniable success and worldwide proliferation of the digital quartz watch.
All that aside, it's incredibly simple and maybe even elegant, with a a great design to the case, very legible display, very nicely made, tapered steel band, owner-adjustable band length, and basic timekeeping functions that are easy to access and use. The alarm is loud enough to wake me up, and it sounds for twenty seconds. It's easy to set, and keeps very good time.
I chose this over the slightly more retro and classic A158 to have the updated electroluminescent (EL) light instead of the small LED which is on the A158. The A158 case is slightly smaller and thinner, and some owners prefer the display on that watch, finding it slightly sharper, with better contrast. I find the display on my A168 watch to be very sharp and legible, so your this is a matter of opinion, and a very small difference if at all.
Casio makes somewhere around three million of the modules in this watch annually. It's an incredible successful design. I have thoroughly enjoyed using this watch. You really can't go wrong here -- it cost me $17.50, and represents incredible value -- better function per dollar than any of the other fine watches I own. I'm not going to wear it to a job interview or with a suit, but it does make a statement of function, value and even design.Read full review
I’m in awe with these watches. They’re not just old digital watches, but they are nice watches with the dang right good information you need for and throughout the day!
The wrist band may rarely at times catch a hair or two. The band is secured and can be adjusted from a small boys wrist to a thicker wrist.
It also has a backlight for the night which helps when in a dark room away from a phone or clock, or is easier to pull up the time and see with.
