5.0 out of 5 stars Good watch for a few bucks, September 13, 2011
This review is from: Casio Men's AW49H-1BV Ana-Digi Dual Time Watch (Watch)
Nice watch, looks good. I didn't care for the strap so replaced it with a black velcro band. My only complaint is that the very tiny P for PM and the tiny bell for Chime are very difficult to see on the display, even in good light because they are so tiny. The PM issue is easily resolved by putting the dual time in 24 hour mode (military), so you don't need to see the P when setting the alarm. As for the chime, well its a little tricky to make sure its turned off so you don't get that annoying double chime every hour. I would say that chime display is the only real issue with the watch. Would be nice to have a light, but then they don't claim it has one, so you get what you're paying for. Time seems to be very accurate, only a few seconds drift a month. I got this to use while working in the yard on the weekends, because I needed something cheap and water resistant. But I like the looks so much I usually wear it most of the time now instead of my much more expensive and heavier Seiko. It seems to be holding up well to the weekend yard work so far, which destroyed my last sports watch.

Three years later and the watch is still going strong. Some people mentioned an issue with scratching the plastic face. Since I use mine for yard work, I admit it does get scratches. Most of these are very superficial however, and I find that a little rubbing with something like Turtlewax restores the crystal to close to its original clarity.
