aye dude fuck what people say its a nice looking watch and its pretty cheap. I have gotten more compliments on that watch than any of my other watches. You can also get it in silver. Those are the two main watches I wear

u/HauteCocao · 8 pointsr/Maniac

Correct! I purchased that exact model for my costume! Edit: Also, the adjustment on the watch band can be a bit tricky, this video will help.

u/tanhan27 · 7 pointsr/blunderyears

Haha yeah it's $18 on Amazon

Sweet of you to offer to buy it for me. I'll just ask my wife to get it for me for Father's day or something haha

u/TheDutchWonder · 7 pointsr/TeenFA

I would suggest a black watch of some sort, as casios are my favorite, I can use those as an example.


Retro - my favorite

Different retro



Not all 100% black, but they at least got a little bit of black in them. I think part of wearing a watch is being able to balance how busy it looks on your wrist with how busy the rest of your outfit is. If you're going for streetwear, wearing a flashy watch is a lot easier than for someone going for a business casual look (of course there are exceptions). I'd say look at these and see if any would mesh with your wardrobe. Even if not, get the calculator one or the analog minimal one just to experiment with watches. They're cheap and it's fun as hell.

Casio A168. Classic. I have about $30k worth of watches and I was stoked to pick one of these up.

I've had more compliments on my $15 A168 than all of my other watches combined. Seriously.

It's also one of my favorite watches.

u/31337hacker · 5 pointsr/StrangerThings

This is the one I have:

Classic design. It's a bit different.

u/meklovin · 4 pointsr/streetwear

I for my part go with this casio for almost 2 years now. My absolute favorite. Also have this one and considering buying a) or b).

Definitely going to buy this Braun watch, either in white or black. Iconic.

u/cpmsmith · 3 pointsr/FrugalMaleFashionCDN

Short answer: yes.

Ruthless as it is, I've tried stuff on in stores and then bought it on Amazon for cheaper—I've got some boots on the way now. I've also gotten a couple of staple watches for pretty good prices, but all of this is related to the fact that I have prime. Sometimes it's a weird system, as in the case of those boots, but if you're willing to learn how to work with it you can find pretty good stuff.

Firstly, buy a Seiko 5. I paid £55 for [mine] ( and I am in love. You cannot get more for you money anywhere. Date and day, automatic movement, luminescent dial.

Like all new collectors, my real grail is proper in-house movement (just saw this in another post [A. Lange & Söhne movement] (, this is watch we live for, dream of and hope one day we'll be lucky enough to own). Once you get interested in movements and the passion of horology it's hard to respect these fashion brands. That said, all new brands have to start somewhere.

Furthermore, my collection is very humble and I'm not a watch snob (I don't snub cheap watches - it's fashion watches I dislike). Here's my collection:

  • [Classic digital Casio stainless steel] ( £15 paid
  • [Timex Outdoor watch] ( £25 paid
  • [Seiko 5] ( £52 paid - looks much better in real life. I love the shape of watch case.
  • [Rossling & Co.] ( $150 paid. I've actually got the gold watch with blued hands but it's been taken of the website (out of stock presumably).
  • [Mondaine Simply Elegant Ladies, mesh bracelet] ( £225 paid (yup I bought the "ladies" model because the men's was too large for my wrists).

    Can't wait to add some more automatic and mechanical movements to my collection. I need to add some watches from brands with great provenance and heritage, but I'm new to this and working with tight budgets. One thing I can say is that I won't ever buy a Gucci or Armani watch or any fashion brand.

    When looking at brands without watchmaking provenance, Montblanc is a great example of how to do it right. They're relatively new to watchmaking but they're doing it with passion and care. As I say, every new watchmaking brand has to start somewhere - like every new collector - the key is passion.

I'm also typically carrying my Galaxy S8 and a pair of Shure Se535s.

I've owned a Timex and several Casio. It'd always go for a Casio myself, however it's personal preference.

Here is a good example of the type you seem to be after. I only ever owned the plastic-bodied versions, but would always recommend Casio for good-value watches.

if he has a tendency to dip his arm in water without really thinking about the watch, maybe one of the 100m water resistant Casio ladies divers might be a good option, like the LRW200H-1BV; unisex style but at a smaller 33mm size.

the Timex Weekender is an option as well. You could get him a bunch of cheap nato straps for it as well if he wants to change the look.

for digital, any of the Casios would work, like the F91W-1 or the A168WA-1

u/designgasm · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

A simple versatile watch could be great. A Timex Weekender, even a Casio A168W-1 Stainless Steel (amazon).

u/Infsys · 1 pointr/EDC

Casio watches are easily my favorite brand of watch.

Incredibly cheap yet incredibly durable and functional.

Just bought my second Casio ever A168W-1, got it for about $17USD - worth every penny.

u/SDSKamikaze · 1 pointr/streetwear

None of them are massive, unless you want to go down the G-shock route. I have this one and I've never found it to be particularly small.

u/dsbM · 1 pointr/Watches

This is a problem im kinda having too right now. I currently wear a gshock but want to switch it up for something a little slimmer. Gshocks run pretty big for me (like 44mm+). Casio seemingly dominates the market for cheap sport watches that are ridiculously durable. Was thinking of getting a casio A168WA

u/dbmeed · 1 pointr/EDC

You can find some of this subs favourite watches here - all of them are under $150, because honestly, if you are going to spend more than that, you should probably do a significantly more amount of research. If you don’t like rubber strap, I would suggest getting a NATO strap-they are compatible with nearly any watch, and super cheap.

My personal recommendation would be a metal Casio A168 or MDV106 with a NATO strap

u/icecolddrifter · 1 pointr/Watches

Casio Duro. Inexpensive, durable and waterproof. If you want an automatic, you could go with a waterproof seiko 5.

Personally I probably just get on of these for my festival visit in august.

u/shadowbanningsucks · 1 pointr/Watches

You might have a look at this watch It is very similar to the one you posted, but it has a better backlight.

u/anco_vinyl · 1 pointr/DJs

I've got one of these Casio watches that has a button to light up the face with a nice blue glow

u/summon_lurker · 1 pointr/gadgets

Something similar to this, either an over lay or under lay which requires very little power.

u/sastarbucks · 1 pointr/AskUK

You say this but I think this watch is classy as fuck

u/Coigleach · 1 pointr/Watches

It's a version of this watch Casio A168WA-1

I can't find the silver face version, though. Good luck!

u/huy- · 1 pointr/Watches

My girlfriend told my Santos looked like a Casio. Ain't wrong.
