Cheap, Strong, Big numbers - what's not to like?,
Ever since I navigated my sailboat around the world using a $10 Casio watch as my primary timekeeping device (before GPS, of course) I've been a big fan of cheap Casio watches, but I have a drawer full of working ones with broken bands. The metal band cheap-o's are mostly the three-button classic with small numerals. As I get older, I need the bigger numerals. This one is absolutely perfect. At $14 it is the ultimate statement of function and substance trumping snobbery.

If the watch is still in decent condition and working, a replacement leather strap could extend its life for another year or two. Although, with a 10-year battery life, these are virtually a disposable item. Shame, really.

I have a Casio with no band from 1995-1996 that still works. Casio is the reliable brand.

I love Casio watches! I always replace the band with superlight velcro bands ... you hardly feel the watch on your wrist! This one is especially nice due to the large numerals (I'm 72, and the old eyes love the big numbers).

I have seen slightly narrower metal expansion bands on Amazon for less than $10. That type of band will probably last longer than leather and maybe even longer than the watch itself.
I got a cheap digital with an expansion band on it at Walmart for about $5. It died relatively quickly. I took off the band and put it on a digital Casio. It fits well.
