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.

In all seriousness, this watch is very comfortable to wear, light, has an easy to read display, and the strap is easily adjustable after watching another reviewer's how-to video. (in a nutshell, you insert a small lever into the hole the arrow is pointing towards on the buckle, pry it open, adjust the buckle to where you want it, then snap it back shut)
Since this watch is basically the Casio F91W-1 Classic Resin Strap Digital Sport Watch with a metal casing, the watch's backlight is just an LED and doesn't illuminate the whole watch face evenly like newer watches with the electroluminescent backlight. The light also only stays on while the button is pressed, so it's not like watches with the electroluminescent backlight where you can press the button once and the watch face stays lit for a few seconds. The watch face is still perfectly legible in the dark though when the light button is pressed.
The watch displays the day (monday-sunday) and the number date, but it doesn't display the month. However, it does ask you for the month when you first set the date, so you won't have to change the number date at the end of each month. The watch also gives you the option to easily switch between normal and military (24 hour) time at the push of a single button.
It's also important to note that the stopwatch feature only goes up to 59:59:99, (just short of an hour) and then the stopwatch will loop back to 0. However, I really never use the stopwatch feature, so this doesn't really bother me. The stopwatch can record two times, but can't save them. For example, if you start the stop watch and press the lap button, the stopwatch will freeze and show you the time. The stopwatch is still going in the background though, and if you press the button that starts the stopwatch again while it is displaying the first lap time, it will display the second lap time, but then you will not be able to view the first lap time again. If you press the lap button again, it will display the current time that was running in the background. I believe this is a pretty typical stopwatch, but I'm not sure because like I said, I really never use stopwatches.
The alarm is reasonably loud, and lasts 20 seconds or until the light button is pressed. I use this as an alarm clock to wake me up in the morning and to wake me up from naps. The watch also gives you the option of having it beep every hour which I use sometimes if I need to be conscious of the time while I'm doing something that is demanding my full attention.
The watch is water resistant, and for everyday wear, it is perfectly fine. The instructions say that not to press any buttons if it's under water though, I assume doing so would let water into the device. I wouldn't wear it swimming, but I started wearing this watch all the time and it is fine in the shower and for brief submersion in water.
Overall, it's a very clean, simple, watch that is a good value and should be very reliable and last a long time. It's not 100% perfect, but for the price, I have to give it 5 stars.
Long story short, it's a great watch, if what you're looking for is simple, cool retro look, and BEEPS that immediately take me back to the old school days of when I was a kid. I mean, nothing beeps like that anymore.
One downside (of both the new and old watches, since they're exactly the same) is that the back-light you can use in the dark is weak, and the button to turn that light on is hard to press.
For him, another downside (of both the new and old watches) is the band. He doesn't like that it has a clasp, so he changes it out to a stretch band. I showed him how to work the clasp (which works just like the clasp on my Skaagen watch), but he doesn't have the patience for it. Personally, I think the included band is very attractive and also quite comfortable, and I find the clasp logical and easy to use.
