With the launch of its first watch in November 1974, Casio entered the wristwatch market at a time when the watch industry had just discovered digital technology. As a company with cutting-edge electronic technology developed for pocket calculators, Casio entered this field confident that it could develop timepieces that would lead the market.
Today, Casio is focusing its efforts on solar-powered radio-controlled watches: the built-in solar battery eliminates the nuisance of replacing batteries, atomic timekeeping means the users never have to reset the time. Recently, Casio launched a series of Bluetooth watches that sync to the users cell phone to automatically update the time. Casio is always moving time forward.

-I've learned the expensive way that opening the case to replace the battery in DataBanks invariably results in condensation build up in the case (7 out of 7 times), and the ensuing backwards E's, upside down L's, and other assorted random characters that plague the display within three months make the watch unusable. Its cheaper to just buy a new watch when the battery goes tits-up.
-It now takes two fingers, pressing on two buttons on opposite sides of the case to turn the light on. This sure beats a single large button that constantly gets bumped, wasting battery life. The display has been dramatically improved to show day-of-the-week in large font, right above the large, easy to read time display.
-The algabraic function is now clearly displayed upon pushing the corresponding button in calculator mode; very important when you are trying to compute your vehicle's mileage while road-raging through rush-hour traffic on icy streets in the darkness!
-Current time is now ALWAYS displayed (albeit in a much smaller font) whilst in calculator, stopwatch, dual-time, and alarm set modes!
-The buttons on the front pad seem larger and easier to operate, with less effort, yet providing a more definitive tactile and aural acknowledgement; in fact, this watch uses multiple tones, at differing volume levels. This makes the watch more ergonomic and lends a feeling of precision and control.
-Finally, while I don't believe for a SECOND that the battery will actually last ten years as Casio foists, even lasting five years will make this watch an absolute bargain.
No iPAD, iPHONE, or other iGADGET will EVER replace a CASIO nerd watch on my wrist! WELL DONE, CASIO!
I agree with another review that noted that while the battery is claimed to last 10 years it probably won't. However, the battery will likely out last the watch. With these Casio watches, if you need to change the battery, you are probably better off replacing the watch.
I am ordering a new one because a tap in the wrong direction caused the part of the case that holds the band pin to break. Still, I got about 3 years use from the watch. I considered the metal case version of the DBC32, but I prefer the light weight of the plastic version.
I agree with other reviewers that wish the watch had the count down timer that older Casio DB watches had, but I really need the multiple alarms and the calculator is more convenient than my cell phone. The stop watch function is useful to me sometimes and I have used the dual time once or twice. I don't use the database function.
It is easy to switch between 12/24 hour time (lower right side button) and I use that feature. Holding the same button down for 2 seconds switches between standard and daylight savings time, but I usually forget that and have to look it up when I need it.
Like all the Casio DB watches I have had, this one gains about 1 second a day. I reset it once a week / 10 days to 5 seconds slow. This makes it accurate +/- 5 seconds.
Although it is labeled as a "unisex" watch, the DBC31A is only slightly smaller in size than the, formally, male DataBank. It is an acceptable size for a man, or a woman who wants a large watch. It has five alarms which can be set to go off at any time of any date. They are one time use and can not be used to remind you of recurring appointments without resetting the timer for each occurrence. It has a full stop watch function; but, it does not have a count down timer. The calculator can be used to make basic calculations. It has a few dozen pages into which information (like contact data) of various sorts may be entered. An LED is used to illuminate the face of the watch. It provides adequate light for night vision; however it is not as bright or "attractive" as the electroluminescent lighting in the DataBank.
If you do not have a need for a count down timer, the low cost and features of this watch make it a good choice.
Then went to the pool with it, same result, no water inside, I don't know if I'm just lucky but so far it has been an excellent watch, because of my line of work I beat it pretty hard, the screen has some small scratches expected from the abuse it suffers from me but still it is solid rock, awesome little device!
Definitively will replace it with the same one when this one fails.
