**Classic, Simple with no irritation!**
That's how I like my every day watches to be. There's nothing worse than being asked the time and struggling to see what the time is yourself because you've got a tiny beautiful diamond studded bracelet watch on which is more for show than knowing what the time is.
I have the odd ' dressy' watch, but can't be doing with watches that i can't even read the clock face, or gadget watches that can switch the tv on or make a cuppa (do they even do those sort of watches yet? If not, it won't be long! ) .... With watches that I choose, I have to be able to read the clock face easily so the white background on this little Casio with black easy read dial was perfect for me, despite it being in the ' mens' section of watches.
Casio has been around for donkey's years and is a well established multi-BILLION successful company renown for producing high quality goods all over the world. I've had several Casio watches over the years and you really can trust in their professionalism and know that you are buying a watch that will last. Ok, so this is not a watch to wear on that glam night out, but it's a watch for everyday use and perfect for me at work. For £6 on Amazon, you really couldn't ask for much more if you are looking for total simplicity. Black in colour, it matches well with many a different outfit.
The watch has black analogue features held upon a white background. The numbers are of good size with clear black markings for seconds and hours. The clock hands are thick and bold and the seconds hand is slightly thinner. It's a striking face to look at and when asked the time, I find I only have to glance at it quickly because it's so easy to read. It REALLY stands out.
The strap is made of durable nickel free black resin and if you are prone to sensitive skin, like me, you should be fine with it as I don't get any irritation at all. I think that's always handy to know when buying a watch, because the amount of watches I've had that have rubbed, marked and irritated my skin is several! I've had the watch a good length of time now and not needed to get the strap replaced. I do however tend to take my watch off after a days work, due to the moistness that can build up under the strap.
The clasp buckle on the strap is very secure and keeps the watch strapped on safely.
*A battery that should run for at least 2 years before needing changing
*It has a 2 year guarantee.
*Japanese quartz movement
*Water Resistant to 30m depth
*Scratch resistant face
*Non metal buckle fastener on the resin strap
*Stainless steel back to the watch
Overall, a timeless watch for those that easily and comfortably want to tell the time!
