Only watch that my husband will wear!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have bought this watch for him every 6 years. He has owned three so far. After replacing the battery, it is not as water resistant. Also, the band has broken on two out of the three of the watches. I gave it 4 stars because of the degradable band. No other watch has movable bezel, analog and digital time, with an alarm, for under $100.00.

Timex makes a rubber band that is a perfect replacement. Resin watch bands always break after a year or two.

There's no reason it shouldn't maintain its water resistance after the battery is replaced. Make sure the gasket is replaced correctly and put a very thin coat of silicone grease on the gasket before re-sealing the back.

Casio makes a stainless band for this watch and it's available on Amazon. I wore out the black plastic band about fifteen years ago and replaced it with the stainless band and it's *still* my everyday watch.
When you get the battery replaced, go to a real jeweler (mine's an old man in his own jewelry store) and he replaces the battery and gasket for six bucks. Still rock solid after nearly 20 years.
