Product Description

Perfect for world travelers, language enthusiasts, or anyone looking for a globe-savvy timepiece, the innovative multilingual databank watch by Casio is the transcontinental ticket. The square digital window displays the time (in 12- or 24-hour format), month and date, and the day of the week in up to 13 different languages. (The languages include: English, Portuguese, Spanish, French, Dutch, Danish, German, Italian, Swedish, Polish, Romanian, Turkish, and Russian.) Best of all, this versatile timepiece also serves as a 30-page databank, storing up to eight letters and 12 numerals per page, with a convenient auto-sort function and Reverse and Forward buttons on the bezel. The five multi-function alarms with snooze capabilities make this watch especially ideal for a busy lifestyle and multiple time zones. This watch also features a countdown timer, 1/100 second stopwatch capabilities, and LED light afterglow illumination. The durable black resin band, bezel and case create a sleek and sporty look. This long-lasting watch comes with a 10-year battery, offers water resistance up to 165 feet.


With the launch of its first watch in November 1974, Casio entered the wristwatch market at a time when the watch industry had just discovered digital technology. As a company with cutting-edge electronic technology developed for pocket calculators, Casio entered this field confident that it could develop timepieces that would lead the market.

Today, Casio is focusing its efforts on solar-powered radio-controlled watches: the built-in solar battery eliminates the nuisance of replacing batteries, atomic timekeeping means the users never have to reset the time. Recently, Casio launched a series of Bluetooth watches that sync to the users cell phone to automatically update the time. Casio is always moving time forward.

    I think this is the best all-digital watch out there right now. It has no unusual features, but it's the least expensive watch to offer a countdown timer, which is what I wanted most, and in a small package. The Casio W71 is the other option. All the rest either lack the timer, have analog hands, or are much larger and heavier. The timex "classic" model, despite some product descriptions, does not have a countdown timer.

    What puts this one ahead is the size of the display, the alarms, and the extra two (fwd/rev) buttons. The size allows for larger numbers in the main time display, but the sub-displays are most useful in the other modes. In timer, stopwatch, 2nd-time-zone, and alarm-set modes the time of day is still displayed in the lower left. No need to switch out of stopwatch or timer to check the time. The fwd/rev buttons make setting any anything much easier as you can always adjust both ways, and never need to guess which buttons change the number and which move to the next field.

    The alarm functions are much better than the usual. There are five, and the first one can be set to repeat up to 10 times at 5 min intervals - much more likely to wake you up than the normal mode. Like all watches, the alarm does not sound very long, but this way it will try again every 5 minutes. They call this "Snooze Alarm Mode" since you can silence the alarm early each time by pressing any button. To stop it completely you need to go to alarm mode and press one button to disable alarm 1 (press twice more to enable it for the next day). All five alarms can optionally use the month and/or day to have an alarm sound every day on a particular month, or on one particular day each month. You can't set it to "first tuesday", or only on weekdays/weekends.

    Verified Purchase
    SEE UPDATE 10-27-10 BELOW.
    I bought this watch to replace my aging but fully functional Casio DB31 ( I have also owned a much older DB2000) because the case broke where the watch band pins connect. I have lived with the DB36 now long enough to say that it is no improvement over the older DB31 and the DB31 outclasses the DB36 in many ways.

    The DB36-1AV keeps good time so far. The bright LED back-light is excellent. Most functions are equivalent to the DB31 and work well. The long battery life remains to be proven. Press of the "Reverse" button displays the Dual Time setting. Press of the "Forward" button displays the last telememo viewed.

    The display functionality of the DB-36 is grossly inferior to my old DB-31. The large font on the first (top) line (day of the week, name of telememo, and other headings) is so big it allows only 3 characters at a time to be displayed. In the database function, any remaining characters of the 8 allowed must scroll by to view. The second line that typically displays the time of day or the beginning of the telephone number in the database also has a large font except for the first character that is small and the last two characters that are medium size. This is fine for the time of day but for a telephone number it presents a strange combination of sizes that means it is useful only for the area code. Then the remaining part of the telephone number is relegated to the third line that uses a miniature tiny type font and is difficult to read unless you are under age 40. (As I write this, the DB36 just reset itself to factory defaults wiping out all of the 21 telephone numbers that I put in.)

    Followup added 10 months later: The DB36 just reset itself again for no apparent reason.

    I just got my Casio watch today. The manual was fairly thick which was mostly translations in a lot of languages. I decided to forgo the manual and see if I could figure out how to set the watch without it. With little effort, I was easily able to figure everything out and set all the functions without any difficulty. The watch has all of it's setting functions labeled on the watch itself. They are named under the glass crystal or impressed in the watch itself or it's buttons. This makes setting this watch really easy. Buttons even included backward and forward buttons which made it easy to go back if you over-shot the date or time going forward. The watch is small compared to my old watch (a G-Shock which is a good watch but now needs a battery after maybe 5 years). I like the small profile and design of this watch a lot. It's water resistant to a depth of 50 feet and has an LED back light. It's an inexpensive watch but with a 10 year battery, I'll probably loose it before I ever wear out the battery.

    I had this watch for a little over seven years now, and the battery is still going strong. I wear this watch everyday as it is my main watch. After all these years of wear, the glass crystal display barely has a scratch; must be coated with anti scratch! The plastic shell has taken lots of abuse, all the etched letters around the crystal screen scratched off, but body is holding up well. The six buttons are worn down, sticks sometimes, but all are still functional. I've had a Casio G-shock in the past, but this watch was more reliable than my G-shock because this watch's original rubber wrist band is still intact after all these years! The only complaint is that this should be a watch worn on the right hand, because if worn on the left hand, sometimes the 12/24Hr button located on the right side of the watch is pushed by my left wrist during light compressions. Even worse is that if the 12/24Hr is pushed long enough, the daylight savings time is turned on/off which will provide me the wrong time. Button is too sensitive. Still, it's an excellent watch from Casio and I will buy Casio again.
