The Casio WorldTime is probably the cheapest most functional water resistant Casio digital watch available on the market today. At around $25 USD for the bracelet variation and even less for the rubber band version, it sure does pack a punch for the money. The case itself is comrpsied of a Polymer and painted in a Silver color measuring in at 40MM in diameter. The thickness is not too bad either at 12.5MM with a lug to lug distance of 44MM. In terms of design, its pretty modern, and classic at the same time. Its’ weight at 40 grams does not feel substantial on the wrist and even I sometimes forget I am wearing a watch.
Digital Display Dial
The functions are all laid out orderly with Separate windows covered by a Plastic crystal. Now, plastic will eventually scratch if put to use - but what can we honestly expect for the money? If we look at the top left of the watch, your home time is displayed in a circular subdial. To the right we have a world map which states the area of the continent in which your watch is programmed too, and cycles around in world time mode. Finally, at the bottom your main functions such as Time, Worldtime, Day-Date, 5 Alarms, StopWatch, and Countdown timer are displayed as you cycle through them with the metal pusher at 8:00. The pushers themselves are small, and really keep out of the way of your wrist. The LED lights up for a couple seconds and then fades as you push the 2:00 pusher for easy reading in dark areas. It looks like a really complicated watch, but is actually quite simple to use at the end of the day.
The steel bracelet is actually quite cheap feeling, and constructed with bars for adjustment. It features an 18MM lug width and honestly looks odd if you decide to throw it on a NATO or some other type of strap due to the case over powering it. However, the bracelet is comfortable and really doesn’t pull hair. There are even four micro adjustments and a signed steel clasp. Do not get your hopes up for a decent quality bracelet on a $25 watch - but do keep in mind it is useable and can hold
up to daily use.
Furthermore, Casio definitely
does offer quite an outstanding watch at around $25 and $15 for the rubber version. It is definitely a decent piece which contains a lot of useful functions which get much use in my daily day to day life.
