4.0 out of 5 stars Good price, nice watch, May 14, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio Men's EF305-1AV "Edifice" Multifunction Analog Watch (Watch)
I've had this watch for about a month and wear it daily to work. For the price point I feel it's well made. All hands function as they should. Time and day of the week are easy to read, but the smaller date hand can be hard to read at a glance. The band is comfortable to wear during long hours at work and it does not retain water as many link bands tend to do if you have to wash your hands frequently. The stainless steel case is attractive; a nice size for a man's watch--too soon to comment on durability but for around $30 you can't go wrong.

Follow up:

This watch served well while it lasted. After approx 2.5 years the band has broken. The watch still works fine but at this price point it's futile to pay $20 for a band and then likely a battery in the near future. I am going to try my luck with the Timex Men's T49772 Casual Diver Watch as a work watch in the clinical setting.

Just read your review for this watch - I'm considering purchasing it. I wanted to point out that according to Casio and Amazon, it has a solar-powered battery so I wouldn't suspect you'd really have to buy a new battery for years and years to come.

Just getting back to this thread sorry:

This watch does not have a solar-powered battery or any type of kinetic system. It takes an SR621W battery which lasted 2 years or so.
