5.0 out of 5 stars 7 years and still running without a battery change !!!!, May 20, 2006
By 
1999 - one of my other watches had a broken glass - so, I was looking for some watch, which I can use for 1 or 2 months before I can buy a fancy one. I was driving on I35 in Austin, drove into a walmart, saw a couple of watches and made a quick decision to buy this casio which then costed me about $14.

7 years have went by, I never bought another watch - I have received a few watches as gift during product promotions etc. But this is the best. It is on my wrist atleast 15 hours a day - office, sports (not swimming), special occasions ...

It is a fully functional, no-nonsense watch - Illuminator, alarm, large format display of time, day and date on the same screen.

My friends cautioned me against using the illuminator and the alarm - saying that it might reduce battery life. But, I have abused this watch more than anybody else could do, set daily alarms, use the illuminator maybe 4-5 times a month ... - I had to replace the watch strap once due to my misuse.

I have no plans of replacing this watch until the battery lasts. After the battery dies, planning to buy a new one - ofcourse it will be a casio (or maybe a citizen ecodrive).

Hi, I have had a few Citizen watches. I found that the glass on them are very thin which causes the face to crack easily. Casio and Wenger are more durable

I"ve used similar models in the military for years, and you're right; they just keep going on and on. I've never worn the basic time piece out, the bands or the band mounts give up first. I seem to wear them for at least 7 years or so before I loose them, or break the band mounts. You can't get any rougher than that kind of service. I never took them off my arm, except to shower or swim, and that is still my habit. They are so slim and compact that the comfort is great. I like to replace the plastic band with expandable bands when they wear out. Those last forever too! Especially if they are Speidel.

I have a citizen eco drive watch I have been wearing daily for about 6 or 7 years. It is very handsome, can be worn for casual, dress up or business. It is not bulk at all. I love it. It did cost just over a hundred bucks at the time. But it was worth it. I just ordered the casio you reviewed. Wore them for years some time ago, particularly for running, but for everyday use as well.

Thanks for the review.
