because I have smallish wrists * Easy to read time * Easy to change time zones ...
on July 8, 2014
I was looking for a new watch that I could wear as a business casual watch, but also could wear running. My criteria were:
* Casual elegant appearance (no bolts, knobs, loud colors)
* Not too big, because I have smallish wrists
* Easy to read time
* Easy to change time zones because I travel
* Easy to rinse band (after exercise)
I first bought the Casio Men's AWGM100B-1ACR "G-Shock" Solar Watch, which I had to return because the digital displays, which included the stopwatch I needed, were microscopic to the point of being unusable (otherwise, the watch was lovely).
I then tried this watch, which was cheaper than the G-Shock watch. Immediately I liked the appearance and size. It has a certain elegance to it and met all the criteria on my list. More importantly, since the digital display (day/date, stopwatch, world time) takes up the whole watch face (in a subtle way) and has electroluminescent backlighting it is easily visible.
So far (3 weeks), I love this watch. I'm not sure if the shiny part of the watch case is plastic or metal. It looks like metal, and if it's plastic I'm okay with that as long as it wears well.
I'll update my review in the future as I see how it wears over time.
Overall it seems to be a keeper!
