5.0 out of 5 stars Casio Databank 'Illuminator', March 2, 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It was fun to observe that this Japanese watch is "Made in China". A Casio Databank watch user from when they were first available many years ago this is my 4th watch of this design. The design makes a lot of sense because it includes a 25 item telephone number memory, a calculator, world time, 5 alarms and a stopwatch.

What is changed from the other Data Bank designs is that the schedule feature is dropped replaced with multiple languages (13) and room for country codes in the phone numbers. This watch is maybe twice the size of the older Data Bank watches. Its thicker and almost a 1/4" wider. Length and watch band hookup remain the same as before.

The method of entering names and phone numbers is changed to a simple up/down method. Works ok. The calculator keys are a bit stiff to push. The memory feature was dropped from the calculator. The stopwatch reset is moved from the lower right button to the upper left button. All in all it's a lot easier to use.

The watch band is a joke so I replaced mine with a 22mm wide Spidel stainless steel flex band.

Although the case looks like metal it is plastic. The reason I replaced my old one was because the chrome cover flaked away leaving the unsightly resin show through. That took 10 years though and I still have the old watch as a backup.

The watch has a nice big time readout, I really like the watch.
