What's your excuse for not owning one of these? Posted on May 10, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor What's your excuse for not owning one of these?

I didn't set the time on all of these just to wear a cheap watch anyway
Good luck telling the time when SHTF and none of those work anymore.
Two things will survive the nuclear apocalypse. Cockroaches, and Casio G-Shock.
>telling time after apocalypse
>not just using sun up, sun directly above, and sun down as reference
Time doesn’t exist without clocks dumbass
>telling the time when SHTF
Look at the sun
GA2100's look better
Fair enough. It's still a Casio. Carry on. Carry on.
They're cheap enough, aren't they?
I have this exact one.
I'm going to get one, it has a cyberpunk feel that gets me
god I miss this thing I straight up lost it in my old apartment while moving some lucky asshole probably found it in the basement somewhere
I now know what I'm replacing this beast with.
Casioaks are hit-or-miss, but man do some of them hit.
I have that one, I recent bought it at the G-Shock store in Shibuya. It's slick.
I already have several
I work a desk job
I would pay good money if someone could magically paint that lighting on there. That's fucking sick.
>has "several" F91Ws
>works a desk job
But anon, i do.
Just need a new battery for the SGW-300H
Damn we own the same watches.
See, this is why Casio is God Tier.
One guy is talking about his fishing watch not having batteries, and it might actually be more cost efficient for him to just go out and buy a new one they're so cheap. This other dude has one that's got an Altimeter and Barometer on it.
I already own two of them OP, what should I do? Buy a third one?
>buy waterproof clock to stick on shower wall
>plops off repeatedly until display is fucked
>put lanyard on old digital casio and hang it from showerhead
I have one of those! Finally a thread where I as happy noguns can contribute 🙂
Go buy a gun.
Nah, I prefer not to go to prison.
Why would you go to prison? Do you live in some place in the world where it's illegal to protect yourself?
Telling time is still useful after SHTF. These watches are so light it doesn't make sense NOT to have one.
Yes, I'm living in a civilized country where we don't hand out guns like candy. Gun infestation is an almost exclusively American societal failure.
Why the fuck are you on this board then, gay?
Guns aren't a handout in America, dip wad
Probably for the Ukraine threads and oriental drawings
I don't mean to get political, but the war in Ukraine is fake and gay.
How do you mean?
You didn't get your free gun? Mine came taped to the back of my social security card.
back to r*ddit tourist retard
>hand out guns like candy
Anon how did you find out last night's wet dream?
>hand out guns like candy
I do have one. I need to replace the battery though.
I own the slightly better version of one of these
f91w is utterly unusable unless in direct sunlight
>t. blind man
second person today to tell me and buy a 5600. maybe its a sign?
I don't know my man, but they're so cheap you really can't lose with a Casio.
>telling the time when SHTF
A compass would be more useful than some time zone/daylight savings afflicted clock
In a non SHTF scenario it's still practical to have the time on your wrist
You just self reported that you lack a radio. NGMI
You can use a watch for orientation you know
Waiting for him to come back with some 'lolwut' without understanding overland navigation.
>with a digital watch
What's wrong Tyrese, can't picture a clock face in your mind?
>using a watch that might run out of battery
get an automatic
Automatics are for queers and women.
Every automatic I've had in my life has needed maintenance at some point. They have small, metal internal parts that need very specific cleanings specialty greases or they stop working. A digital watch just needs a new battery every 5 years or so, which takes about 5 mins to do.
It has a guaranteed 10 year battery life. I think you'll be fine.
Like, I love my automatics, but you drop an automatic movement watch, and you're probably going to break it, and it's not going to be as accurate as a quartz movement over the long run.
Automatics are great dress watches, but not much else.
the good version of gschook has a solar panel. never run out.
infact, i dont ever buy watches anymore that arent radio or solar.
I don't like square watches. Round only for me.
I have an F-84 which is just a weebtastic F-95. Backlight is next to useless but for 1000yen it can't be beat.
Yeah, the backlight on some of them is pretty pathetic, but the illuminator watches are fucking based. Only other watch that has anything close to it in my opinion is the Timex Indiglo.
See pic. The whole thing is fake in the sense that sure there are dudes dying, and there are actual battles going on, but the reason for it happening is entirely contrived and the manner in which the whole thing is being conducted is sus.
good, I hope American technology leaps three generations into the future regardless fo whether it's real or not, I couldn't give two shits
chinks and russies need to be removed from this planet, I cannot wait for whatever reason for them to finally meet in the skies, finally true stealth fighter jet, against whatever F-X99 the MIC comes up with, some literal spaceage laser shooting baby killing low-orbit to high atmosphere hell pisser.
We might get the technological leaps, but so will Russia and China. It'll be a situation like 1984 where the world will be divided along various lines and each region will control their populations with an iron fist while convincing them a war of eternal stalemate is being waged between themselves and the other major powers.
Anyway, I used to have a Casio calculator watch back in the day... I don't think I threw it out, but I wish I knew where it went. That thing was tits.
I will read your cool thriller novel, anon. I also possess a B5600 G-shock, the thing is a tank. I've operated operationally with it in arctic conditions and I am pleased with my purchase. The band it came with sucks though, I had to change it out for a fabric. The original clinked around as a metal band.
You mean to tell me Ukraine is the MIC's successor to the Near East?
>War in ukraine is fake!
How do people like you still exist during the internet age?
Letting non american ips on the internet was the worlds biggest mistake, we should have kept it for ourselves. Imagine a world without euroshits like this moron gay
>it's fake because Russia is still selling gas
They're flat broke you retard
>their shit keeps getting repaired
lol no, Russia is fucked
>WHERE ARE DA NOOOOOOOKS?!?!!??
they don't exist or don't work, have you seen their armor?
If my F95 can go swimming in the sea just to then spend ten hours submerged in beer it can withstand actual combat just as well as any other watch.
I only wear mechanical watches
Seiko is my second favorite brand after Casio, but I only wear my Seiko watches as formal wear. Casio I wear everywhere else.
Yeah, I guess so. Funny story though, the Ukrainians scammed a bunch of Brazilian mercs by offering them 2k a day to fight, didn't pay them up front, and then to avoid paying them, they sent the whole group to Bakhmut to get slaughtered by the Russian mercs who were also probably sent there to avoid paying too many dudes.
Moral of the story is this: Don't join a PMC unless you want to be a financial loose end that needs tying up.
There's also a tan one
Who could ask for anything more?
Because they cost fucking 35-40 euros where I live!
I am not paying 30+ euros for a god damn Casio!
For fucks sake, Finland is expensive!
Every watch I've owned outside of purely mechanical ones has died within a few months besides a couple pocket watches I tried when I started cooking. Those I usually ended up banging on a counter corner or something too many times, and soon after phones just made wrist watches obsolete for me. I had a few casios when I was younger, too. Died like the rest. My phones always go screwy too, but not like the watches, which just died. Maybe I'm cursed.
Friend, if you can manage to kill a G-Shock, then you ARE cursed. Just look up videos of people trying to destroy them. They ran one over with a semi, and it held up and is in the guiness book of world records for being the only watch to withstand being run over by a goddamn truck.
Yeah, I know. They don't usually die by any overt physical destruction (besides the pocket watches I resorted to). They just died. Like stopped working. And no, replacing batteries didn't fix them. Weird shit, I know.
Agreed, if I believed in spoopy. It's just weird shit.
VGH MY FELLOW CASIO POORFAGS
the utilitarian combo
>anything other than an PRW-3000
>not xbox huge
>radio controlled time
Hell yeah. Have had mine for the better part of 9 years and it still runs like a top. Haven't even needed a new band.
I like wearing my metal 105 in summers for its lightness but PRW-3000 served me great through grind and mud. Now wearing Suunto Ambit3 Peak and see no need to replace it for now.
Had to buy spare wrist bands for my F-91W. Originals almost snapped. Good watch though.
F-91W price doubled in the last couple of years. Fucking hell!
Own a pic related.
The tide indicator and moon phase are gimmicks for anyone who isn't a sailor or a werewolf, but the atomic sync and solar charging is really nice. The negative display is also appropriately tacticool
are there any watches with the same form factor as the f91 but better durability/actual waterproofing/backlight? most of the gshocks and equivalents i see seem to be far bigger than the f91 which is kind of a problem for a wristlet like me
The DW5600 isn't that big. I'm also a wristlet and it's not comically large on my wrists, you could probably get a nato strap to further slim down the profile of the watch as a whole. I have a 91 as a backup watch but the backlight just sucks.
Very hard to get a watch as small or light as FW91, there is a metal version A198 which is same size and almost as light. There really isn't anything else unless you want a woman's watch which will be a flimsy analog that costs $400.
but i do
it's like 10 years old
Because I already have a GAB2100
I'm not a Jihadist.
because I own these
The digits of the 6900 series are comically small compared with other G-Shocks. It's a fucking shame Casio axed the much better 6600 while retaining the 6900. Should have been the other way around
yeah the size-to-digit ratio is kinda shit on the 6900. That's why I got the GX56. That and I'm well outside the multi band 6 range
The wife got me a nice self-winding mechanical years ago and I just wear that.
You don't belong here
but i do anon, and ive worn it everyday for the last 5 or so years and she looks like shes been to hell and back for it. had to replace the strap for it and shes due for another and i dont think theres a spot on it without a scratch.
Is there a watch where I can quickly press a button that records the date/time then and there, and can be easily viewed quickly later on?
Because they didn't have an F91W at Walmart 9 years ago and the F108WH I got because it was the cheapest option on the shelf at the time is still working. Although the face and case has some dings and gouges. And I feel like it just isn't right to upgrade to a gshock if the stress I've subjected my current watch to hasn't been enough to break it.
Strap is tiny and illumination is a joke. For me it's the AE-1200w, entirely for the little world map it has
They are woth it just to make fun at Shakira's song
They are cheap garbage.
I own a garmin fenix because Im not a pleb
I got the one with the timezone map because I thought it looked nicer.
I got a G-Shock and a FW-91 but I prefer my old Nike Oregon. It's built like a tank and that strap is a perfect match for my camo.
Integrate the clock into the gun and I'll buy it
I'm thinking about this, and...I guess you could put it onto the frame, right below the slide? that wouldn't be super useful, though
>put it on the slide
I don't think even a g-shock or one of those casios with the hypergel padding shit would survive its quarts being fucking rocked by the impulse of a handgun, you'd lose time so fast you'd be liable to skeletonize yourself instantly
Anyone own the 5000 series gschock? Its around $250, made of better parts.
how does it compare to the normally priced version?
there is also a $4000 version of that same watch
I've got the 5600J. Its the original with a square back. Found it in mint condition at the thrift store for $5. Just needed a new $13 battery. Has solar and radio time sync. I think originally these were around that $200 price point. Its nice to have solar charging and auto illumination when its dark so I don't have to push the light button. Other than that its no different than the current $50 version.
I do, but my wrists are too big and I got Saturday Night Syndrome after wearing it for a while and haven't worn it since.
I broke mine by tossing it out of the shower
Because I own one of these...
Based and World Time pilled. It's by far my most worn watch next to the Hamilton Khaki.
That said the most PrepHole of watches is the Marathon GP.
>the Marathon GP
Not the GSAR?
GSAR is awesome ofc... I just don't like Divers.
I didn't like my Marathon. It's kept eating shit and needed to go back to the shop.
Replaced it with a Garmin Instinct 2.
what is that?
I just like it.
Been wearing mine for years and will probably get another when it breaks.
Cool, probably gonna buy one.
Because I'm not a poorfag imao. Side note, I respect the brand though.
They smell funny after a while.
Get a garmin or something
because a plastic band is sweaty as all hell.
I do enjoy mine ever since I got it
They don't fit because I have enormous wrists and forearms , and they're not available with longer straps
Use a NATO strap you mongoloid
And lose some weight
For me? It's the SKMEI 1412, a Casio F-91 "replica" with an illuminator light that isn't shit.
My best investment.
I don't because I already do
>verification not required
I used to own one, when I was like 13 in the 80s. I recall how discoloured and sweaty it made my wrist look. Nowadays I am so used to checking my mobile phone that I can't get used to having one of those things around my wrist.
Any recommendations for 20mm replacement bands for casios? I noticed the vinyl tends to break after 2-3 years which is fine but then I have to get a new watch cause the bands are like only like bucks cheaper after shipping. I tried a leather one once but it was too thick around the spring bar and didn't fit well.
Poly strap from the watch steward might work. I put elastic straps from Nick Mankey on so the watches I actually intend to wear regularly and watch steward straps on the ones with tighter lug area
Get a NATO strap. they can be found very cheaply, especially if you buy a bunch and save on shipping costs. Casios are no longer as cheap as they were years ago. The price of an F-91W has doubled.
>the price of an f-91w has doubled
Yeah, but how much of that is because of inflation?
My F-91W never leaves my wrist
I have nerve damage and wearing a watch makes my wrist+hand itch and burn.
Get into real heavy weight lifting and get intense massages, sauna is good too
Wear it on your other arm you goof
I have the problem in both arms.
I've worn the same casio daily for ~7 years now
I don't wear a watch because I'm not a fed
I've trained my internal body clock so i do not need a watch.
Go on ask me the time and i'll prove it.
F-91W backlight is so bad it's a meme. Literally pay the $2 more to get the illuminator blue light model
Ignore all the paint, this is my model-building desk.
>NATO band on an F-91W
I've got the strangest hard-on right now.
None, F-91W supremacy
What's a cool model for a poorfag like me? Preferrably around 100 bucks/euros
What about the one with reversed colors? Black background and white numbers?
They look cool but they're even harder to read than you'd expect them to be.
I own a W-800hm
this is the correct decision
half g shock
the perfect hybrid
So uhh what's the model of the one that looks like the 5600 but has solar and that nuclear clock radio thingy?
Nuclear clock thingy? You mean quartz?
I see, I need to test them out somewhere then if it's the problem, because they look cool for sure, yes
>Nuclear clock thingy? You mean quartz?
Not that anon, but some watches feature an antenna to automatically sync up with atomic clocks that broadcast a time signal.
That thing? I think pretty much every casio watch has it.
I thought he was talking about radioisotope battery or quartz
Is this actually a thing?
It is a thing, for pacemakers at least
No idea if someone uses this shit for watches, probably with all the cheaper possibilties like solar cells this shit is not necessary.
It is based on beta decay. Also called betavoltaics
Yeah, it looks like beta cells aren't really a thing in any application where the cost, radiation shielding, regulatory encumbrance, etc. outweigh the hassle of replacing the battery—replacing a pacemaker battery probably requires surgery, replacing a wristwatch battery doesn't.
No I meant like the wave ceptor or whatever that's in tune with atomic clocks
Thank you anon
Don't need an excuse I own both
I have an array for various situations.
Green GG-1000 for working outdoors.
Orange GG-B100 for working inside.
Apple for when I have iPhone as main.
Tag for when I’m using a Samsung.
Pro-Trek PRG-80T for nostalgia. It was my deployment/contracting watch. It’s seen some shit.
My excuse is I wear the Casio Royale daily.
What features are worth going higher than a base model Casio digital watch for? I find myself using the stopwatch function quite regularly and the alarm function every so often as well.
More rated water resistance, better lume, countdown timer, solar if you hate changing batteries
Radio-controlled ("atomic") timekeeping sounded like the sickest shit when I was a kid but quartz movements only gain/lose a couple of seconds a month so who cares
Yeah, that sounds extremely useful.
Yeah, I use it for cooking all the time. It's also useful if your job is strict about how long your breaks and lunches can be.
I have one of these
G-Shocks are just too fucking big imo, not even a wristlet in fact the F9X are a bit too small for my taste but G-Shocks are comically thick and wide
>not even a wristlet
If a square G-shock like the 5610 is "too big" then I've got some bad news for you.
Nta but I don’t wear any watches with more than a 40mm case width. Don’t like the look or feel, when I wear a watch I want to feel like it’s not even on my wrist (I don’t wear rings for this reason either, was initially an argument with my wife but I don’t like having anything on my fingers/wrists).
I like the F91 style watches.
Gshocks are too bulky on my wrist. The former is nice and thin and doesn't hurt my wrist.
Casio and citizen are the best current production watch companies
Casio and Orient, assuming you meant *value* watch companies. Citizen's product range is solid, but uninspiring.
I never really felt anything about orient. I love my citizen 8180 and my casio f91w so those are the two watches I'm coming from
i want that fucking steyr
Because I have this
How's the bracelet? Does it have toolless micro-adjustments or anything else to reccommend it?
Every bit of it is flawless. I had to take 3 links out because I have bitch wrists, and it took 2 minutes with a pin.
I do own one, it's been my only watch for almost five years now and shall never be replaced.
I only wear watches worth at least 40 grands.
>Casio × AP G-Shock Royal Oak
I have one of these that I wear daily but it is incredibly beat to shit and crusty.
Brother! I used an F108wh for years. Comfy little watch. Had gotten an m5610u-1bjf a while ago after winning some cash at the casino
Redpill me on black gshocks Vs white gshocks and by the colour i mean the screen
Black one looks way cooler but people say it's shit to read?
>black gshocks Vs white gshocks
The negative lcd screens have worse viewing angles in a lot of mixed lighting conditions in my experience. They're prevalent enough that you should be able to see one in person at a store but I'd say go for the normal gray/silver background if you're indifferent, if the negative screen is cool enough to get you to wear the watch then go for it. I only have one negative lcd screen anymore and it's an old ironman that lives in a junk drawer because I keep forgetting it's in there. If the negative screen is cool enough to get you to wear the watch then go for it.
What I really want casio to do is put out more watches like the old twincept with analogue face under an lcd layer.
And how do they both look when using light? I also operate in a lab and I would want them to shine through the nitrile gloves, which one would be better?
I don't know if any watch normal backlight is going to shine through nitrile gloves very effectively. A lot of smartwatch screens might and I think casio has a gshock styled smartwatch with a different screen but I've never handled or seen one in person.
I forgot the youtube link to a direct comparison of the negative and regulars backlights
Thanks anon, the light for the black one looks definitely better and it looks cooler overall
I don't think the numbers of the white one will actually shine through but black seems more like it
Apparently this is wrong because new models use led light instead of electroluminescent
Internet has rotten my brain.
I do, pictured left hand
I thought they were supposed to be cheap 🙁 This is over 40 USD from the Australian distributor. Is it being manufactured in Japan or something? It looks like it should cost $3
Dude, they're on Amazon right now for $14USD what fucking website are YOU on?
how prevalent are the fakes?
>how prevalent are the fakes?
>he doesn't know how Amazon's warehouses work
When a product is listed as fulfilled by Amazon, that company is shipping stocks of their product to Amazon's warehouses where they're stored and shipped out from. Amazon doesn't keep that product separately at their warehouses though, and instead commingles that product with the same SKU product from Amazon and every other company that's fulfilled by Amazon and stores them in the same common location in their warehouse. How much product Amazon and the various companies that are fulfilled by Amazon have on hand is then just kept track of as a number and deducted accordingly while pulling from that common location in their warehouse. If Company A sends a shipment of counterfeit product to Amazon, you're now stuck with a situation where you can order from Amazon or any other number of companies fulfilled by Amazon no matter how reputable they are and get Company A's counterfeit product.
Yeah, but free trijicons bro.
Or $16.88 at Walmart if you don't want to risk getting a counterfeit from scamazon.
In my area it's tough to get one at Wal-Mart because the monkeys are always stealing every watch they can get their hands on.
£11 from Argos. You're being taken for a ride!
How much does cuteness boost performance?
It only works if the wearer is cute
I…I could see myself wearing this.
They're out of production now. It's from Casio's poptone line of girls, but that line does include designs that aren't overly girly.
Walmart has the blue one in stock online for $35.
Post arm, anon?
mine broke on the appalachian trail last year.
i kinda miss it, it survived 4 years of high school, 7 years in the army. and then 4 more years of college.
>What's your excuse for not owning one of these?
I own a GW-M5610 which is the solar powered variant of the DW-5600. And thanks to having a red stripe around the watch face it also looks more like the OG DW-5000C - the first G-Shock
Is the GW-5000U the best square g-shock in the market right now?
I wanted a face that didn't look tiny and retarded like 90% of Casio watches worth a damn.
So I got a solar powered Casio.
No need to worry about batteries
Don't know what happened to my F-91, it appears to have evaporated, bought a GAy-100 to replace it a few years back
Mine was in a coat pocket for a year, untold #s of washes and dries before it popped out onto the floor fine and on-time
Unless you sprung a pin or ripped poly band you'll find it one day
Citizen chandler garrison + nato strap + clip on compass and you're set
A fellow Citizen, love to see it. Love the garrison. Gonna wait for the band to finally give before I get a NATO strap.
But anon, I own two
I daily wear an applewatch nowadays though, it's alot more convenient
I own both and use neither
I am wearing the one on the left right now as I type this
I can't stand the asymmetrical feeling of wearing a watch on only one wrist, and wearing one on both makes me look like a dweeb.
NATO or Zulu watch strap?
How big are your wrists?
I own the one on the left, the right one is therefore redundant
Is it just me, or do watch straps make anyone else's wrist hurt? Even if I wear it loose it will still cause pain on the tendons on the underside of the wrist, or ride up to a spot where it is tight.
If it's too loose it's going to chaff. I have the original strap on my F91W and it's fine
Not chafe, I mean cause internal tendon pain by holding the tendons of the wrist down.
I OWN BOTH
Velcro nato band for the gshock
Stock poly for the f-91W
Then to dazzle the casio-judging shallow ppl I whip out the gucci wallet
I've never really been a watch guy.
I own a F91W, Vostok Komandirskie, Elgin dress watch you can see through, and an Invicta Pro Diver. I've always just worn my F91W though.
However I've been looking into field watches recently and am really split on what to get. I'm liking what I see from Seiko and Citizen, but I really want a mechanical watch (not auto, not quartz, not eco). I like the look of the classic Hamilton dial face, but I don't want to pay $400 for one, I'm looking more at $200 or less.
Mainly looking for something that is analog, big numbers on every hour, shows date and day of week, mechanical, and most importantly durability in the field.
Any ideas? Or am I just stuck with Hamilton?
Seiko 5 ref. SRPG35K1 - You should be able to find one for about 250$
Mechanical isn't good for durability, though- insofar as watches go, it's the worst choice. Mechanical is great for dress watches, it's really interesting from the standpoint of, well, anybody that likes machines (which, taking into account what a gun is, and, at least, why I like them, immediately explains why there'd be some innate overlap between gun enjoyers and mechanical movement enjoyers), but it's not actually better, and it's far harder to service or do anything with. If you're actually, genuinely, seriously concerned about durability, a quartz movement (with radio adjusted time, if you're an autist about those few extra seconds, which will be less than a mechanical's offset anyways) especially the multi-year guaranteed battery lives, will always be more durable.
Mechanical movements are a work of art, and of course they're not bad or anything, but, like, would you take a luger with you where you desired reliability, or would you grab an 1911 or just a glock?
I get the idea of being able to wind your watch at any time sounds really nice, but you're comparing a solid state device to an entirely analog one full of parts you definitely aren't going to be able to service yourself
The more I look into it, the more I think you're right. I watched some torture tests after I posted that, and wasn't impressed. Quartz really are the most reliable for the field.
I think I'll just stick with my F91W for field use. I will one day get a nice dress watch but that's another question all together. I like my Invicta Pro Diver, but maybe I'll get something more expensive and not a straight rip off of a Rolex in design.
If you want a mechanical watch, but not an automatic, the Hamilton khaki field is basically your only affordable option. As the other anon said, mechanical watches are more fragile than quartz, but some watches like seiko dive watches are fucking bulletproof. If something fucks me up hard enough to make my seiko stop working, then I’ll most likely be dead.
Forgot pic like a retard.
nice watches. I think I'm just gonna stick with my F91W though. No sense in paying that much for a field watch. I will be getting a dress watch at some point though.
There are tons of nice mechanical watches by seiko, citizen and orient in the 150-200 dollar range. I’ve been considering getting pic related, it’s only 160 or so on Amazon. I’ve owned several orients in the past, nice watches. Subsidiary of seiko, they’re generally very affordable.
Get a shit cheap Automatic from Aliexpress for $50. It'll still have a Seiko automatic movement in it.
Bought one at basic training in early 2010s. Original battery is still running. Starting to think these things run on plutonium!
already have a W96H. I liked my F91W but it's just too small, meaning it looked weird on my wrist and made it difficult to see information. Loving the W96H so far.
By the way, don't fall for the redditfag meme of changing straps. It looks cool but nothing will beat the original rubber strap.
What is a good type of replacement strap for the F91w which is not a NATO and better than the default?
nothings better than the default. I tried probably 5+ straps on mine and nothing was quite as comfy, durable, or easy to use.
I don't give a fuck what time it is.
I do what I want, whenever I want.
Because my job at the FBI says that agents can't wear digital watches.
These assholes are walking around the bureau wearing $10,000 analog watches like Omega, as if I would possibly justify spending that much money on a piece of male garden gnomeelry.
But sure OP, I'd use a Casio.
Here, get a $200 watch that isn't ass.
>not even an ISO diver
Reminder that "Water Resist 20bar" is a way more lax standard then "Diver's 200m".
I didn't realise the FBI was doing coastguard work now. It's a desk-diver for desk jockeys, and it's priced accordingly.
>not even an ISO diver
I don’t spend money on watches anymore, but is there a 200 dollar ISO cert dive watch in existence? The old SKX007 WAS, but they stopped making them and they’re like 500 dollars used on eBay now. You can’t really complain that it lacks features of watches that cost twice the price.
Reminder that there's no overlap between people who care deeply about dive watch certifications and people who actually dive.
>not even waterproof to 200m
$50 casio duro > that bullshit
20 bar is 200 meters. It’s not ISO certified, but neither is the duro. It’s a solid watch, and tons of nice and expensive divers aren’t even ISO certified, so I don’t really see that as a deal breaker, not at that price. It’s very comparable to Citizen’s 200 dollar mechanical divers, with the same features.
Realistically when are you going to have to dive 200m?
I wouldn’t even get in the fucking pool in a watch without a screw down crown.
I'm too retared to read mechanical watch and too lazy to walk with it all the time which causes the automatic thing to stop and i have to readjust time again
I ordered myself a digital one like this
but with black screen so it doesn't look too cheap
Mechanical watches are a scam

Very nice, I’ve had this forever, would like to get an Omega Planet Ocean.
Get it cleaned up and sell it for double what you paid for it
>I'm too retared to read mechanical watch
How the fuck did you get through Quantico?
Im probably not that FBI anon you are replying to
Would be kinda a dick move to sell it since I got it as a gift from father
>but with black screen so it doesn't look too cheap
nice trips but you made a bad choice cause negative screen has poor visibility
Yea but positive one looks like calculator I have (guess what, it's casio too) and I don't like it that every time i take a look to check the time im going to be reminded of a calculator
This is Robert Muller former director of the FBI wearing some digital casio on the inside of the wrist like a fucking psychopath.
And here's the picture, sorry for being retarded.
Actually I thinks it's this exact watch.
No it's not. That watch is too BIG.
Buy a Casio
1. you're gay
3. get a Bulova Devil Diver; it's a solid budget option in an obnoxious colorway and and the Satanism-adjacent branding might help you get a promotion
For me, it's the Casio W-800H.
Simple and Effective.
prefer the traditional face myself
Because I'm an adult.
Because I already own one of these:
Already own a silver calculator one
Dive watches are just boomer G-Shocks, change my mind.
^Based. You are worthy to birth my manbabbies.
garden gnomeelry is fundamentally homosexual and the only justification for a watch on a weapons board is if it shoots as does this one:
garden gnomeelry is a portable display of wealth that signals to potential mates not just that you're well-off but also that you're strong enough to defend your wealth (and, therefore, her and your oiffspring) from threats.
It's so non-homosexual that it's almost obscenely biological. What's really gay is the modern trend of ultra-rich types like Marc Zuckerstein who insist on dressing like commoners, probably because they know their wealth has no basis in reality and they would have no recourse if someone took it for themselves.
There's no way this poster isn't a poorfag.
Man you sound miserable
im very proud of mine! 😀
That's not an arm
Don't use a watch.
If I were to get a watch, it would probably be one of the cheap Casios that's just there to tell me what time it is.
The one for 100 bucks has the advantage that it will never run out of battery and will set time on its own so you won't have to do anything
>What's your excuse for not owning one of these?
Because the A158W is better.
Plastic painted to look like metal is cringe.
if it's good enough for John Candy, it's good enough for me
The NATO strap versions can catch on things and rip the watch apart. I'd recommend opening and resealing F-91Ws with silicone to increase the water resistance over time.
t. gone through 3 F-91Ws in the past two years doing manual labor job
imagine having to dig something out of your pocket whenever you want to know the time and there isn't a clock nearby

My phone can tell the time nerd.
My latest acquisition
Don't have enough disposable income to get one of the titanium ones, so I just went with steel
It's a great watch
Already have one. Love my F-91W. But this is what I'm wearing now. The Indiglo is amazing.
This Timex Expedition I've had since 1995 has been trucking along just fine
1997, my fault
i was born in 97
Also December. Do you feel as out of touch with both zoomers and millennial as I do.
ONLY watch you ever need
I forget what day it is way too often to rely on that.
There is no excuse.
when I got my f91w I was told that there's not many of them around anymore as they're being phased out in favor of the illuminated version. not sure how accurate that is though.
F108WH has served me well for a few years

What’s a good “rugged”/durable analog watch? I work in construction/the “skilled” trades and some secret squirrel jobsites I go to don’t allow us to have phones or smartwatches on our person so I end up having to hope that the security escort will be able to tell me the time.
An analog G-Shock like
any ISO-certified dive watch, since shock resistance is part of the standard
Analog watches are a lot more durable than people in this thread seem to think. Look into dive watches, they were used by professional divers for decades before diving computers were a thing. They often have a thicker case, lug guards, and recessed glass, plus a rotating bezel that you can use as an analog stopwatch/timer. I'm a big fan of the Citizen Promaster, classic looks, Japanese made, great starter watch and a bang for your buck.
Green is best F-91W color
