The Duro Marlin has an all stainless steel case with a mix of brushed and polished surfaces. Measurement wise, we are looking at quite a large 44MM diameter with a 12MM thickness. Lug to lug, we get a 48MM measurement which is very reasonable and certainly allows the duro to really wear like a 42.5 43 when on wrist. Between the lugs we are looking at 22MM which is average for a 44M case. Please do keep in mind that I have removed the original Resin band the watch came with due to it being not the most comfortable, or of the highest quality. I mean, this IS a $50 watch so we cannot expect to get the whole combo meal deal. This watch can actually be used to dive and is rated 200M with a screw down sterile crown and caseback.
The dial is fairly simple and resembles a Rolex Submariner quite a bit, well what doesn’t nowadays? Applied lumed markers in white surround the dial whole a framed date aperture sits at 3:00. The hand resemble a sword and arrow with a nice pointed red accented seconds ticking hand. I do like the addition of the Marlin printed in white above 6:00. These small gimmicky things really do it for me! Jumping to the crystal , it is indeed a flat mineral crystal which is expected at this low pricepoint. The 120 Click Uni-Directional bezel is not half bad and has minimal play with zero alignment issues ( Seiko..Step your game up.)
This watch utilizes a Japanese Quartz 3 handed date movement with a SR626 Battery which will last for approximately 3 years. The movement itself will gain around 4 seconds a month, tested on my model.
Conclusion and Lowest Price
In conclusion, for $40-$60 the casio Marlin certainly has its’ place in the market. Whether you are a new collector or seasoned, old or young, who honestly doesn’t need a beater dive watch that can go 200M in the water for $40! This is quite the bargain and I have said it over and over again on my YouTube channel when I reviewed this model a year or so ago.
