Default Casio Twin-Graph AE-20W Digital Watch

Does anyone else have one of these? I've had this watch for probably 12 years now and I still love it! See the pics.

Sort of like my Fossil Watch. The the pretiest tool, but a damn fine example of cheap labor forces actually producing a quality item while still feeding their familes

I probably paid around $29.99, IIRC. It was at a store up on the highway called Service Merchandise, which is no longer in business.

This is actually a pretty good watch. The biggest plus is that it has 5 separate alarms that you can set. I've never seen any other watches in that price range with that many alarms.

I have a $3 digital watch from Walmart that I wore through Army BCT ten years ago.

Still works.

I like watches that tell time, don't look too ostentatious, are relatively inexpensive, and that's it. I don't mind digital watches, but I don't need any other functions than time.

My watch:

I like that. I quit wearing watches becauses metal ones are an occupational hazard. IS that totally encased in rubber, or just anodized (or coated in some other way) black?

It's ceramic.
http://www.amazon.com/Skagen-817LBXC...dp/B004PJZEYY/

Really nice watch for a little over $100.
I like a lot of Skagen's designs. Simple, elegant, and inexpensive.

I like Seiko and Orient, as well. I could never see myself spending into the hundreds or more on a watch, even if I was wealthy.

I do like Casio, though. Their cheaper and simpler watches, at least, not crazy about G-shock like a lot of people seem to be.

Ahhh...even better. So it can NEVER conduct electricity, even if it gets scratched/abraided.

I will have to look into those whenever I finally decide I want to buy a new watch.

Get a G-Shock. Those things will outlast you.
