      It’s so perfect bros

      overhyped meme terrorist watch.
      there are far superior models that cost like 10 bucks more…
      it used to be worth only 10 bucks before the meme hype took off.

      Even if you love this kind of watch, I doubt that’s true. Because — to take just one example — for basically the same price, you could get a Casio F105W, which is nearly identical except the backlight is far better.

      Based. It’s not unusual to see rich people wearing cheap digital watches. I’ve seen photos of Bill Gates, Ryan Gosling and Idris Elba wearing Casio digitals and Hank Paulson wearing a Timex Ironman. Picrel is a former CEO of Intel with his Casio F-105W.

      A cheap digital watch makes a lot of sense for a rich person, even if the low price is irrelevant: it requires nearly zero maintenance and attention, it’s extremely accurate, it has an alarm, and it’s totally uninteresting to thieves.

    No, this is that watch perfected. It won’t break when you’re running a jackhammer, the backlight is way better, the case and band are much better quality plastic and you won’t have to replace the band before the battery, it has a countdown timer, and unlike the f91w it doesn’t look tiny on normal-sized wrists. Get one, you’ll realize it’s way better.

        The square g shock isn’t worn by streetwear people, it’s the only one that’s only $40. You will come around if you buy one. The only people who own both and prefer the f91w are people with tiny, little wrists. Picrelated is the solar/atomic version.

          How’s the backlight? I wanted to mod my F-91W to have a better light inside, but I never got around to it. If this watch has a good light from the get-go then I may as well grab that and do everything else I wanted to do.

            It doesn’t have a good light. Ironically, that is one of the first mods I wanted to do, but I accidentally jumped the gun and oiled filled it before I got to changing the light, so I couldn’t do it. The oil does make the light more effective.

            The dw5600 (orignal g shock square that’s been posted itt a few times) has the electroluminescent backlight but is currently being phased out for one featuring an LED backlight. If you can still find the EL model, you won’t find a better backlight on a casio watch.

I drive vehicles through dirt and mud, and I need precise timing. That’s why I use a G-Shock with mud resistance and 2 chronos. Sometimes I have to wear it outside my uniform, that’s why it needs a long, durable strap. Altogether, this is why I use a Mudman and not a f91w.

      Which one would fit better on a 6.5 inch wrist?

      I have 7 inch wrists and i think the f-91 is a bit too small, while the g-shock is just perfect.

      After using the both for work, the buttons have come a bit loose on the f-91w. And the screen is scratched on it. The g-shock is like brand new.

    >LF20-W
    My latest Casio. It has a lot of features – several time zones, timer, stopwatch, and 5 alarms.
    The analog hands show the current local time, and the digits display whatever special mode you’re using.
    The black circle in the top right counts out seconds, in addition to the second hand on the analog display.
    In theory it’s very practical but somehow I don’t like it much. The buttons feel rougher than expected for Casio, and the analog display is not pleasant to look at. A main digital display would have been better. The seconds pinwheel is a pure gimmick that is only there because the seconds hand is so tiny.

            I see. And yes, I agree it could have used that corner for something else. The analog watch is very useful when you are doing other operations and you still need to check the time. For example if you use a Casio as a diver, and you want to keep track of the diving time with the countdown timer, you’ll be able to check the time on the analog display, especially because you don’t want to press the buttons underwater. (And tangential question: does the square G-Shock have this function?). But yes, the seconds pinwheel is kinda useless. Still a nice watch though.

      Never understood this idea. Watches aren’t obsolete. I look at my watch dozens and dozens of times per day.

    What temperature is it safe to use up to? I frequently use saunas that go 40c/100F and above, and my current watch isn’t suited for that

      I wear this just about everyday. I like it a lot, but the strap sucks. I switched it out with a 71604130 Watch strap and it’s great.

          Maybe because the LF-20W doesn’t have the colorful lettering and design. And collectors might want the genuine vintage watch, not a modern variant of it.

    Where’d you buy this exact model OP? I also got one and it looks exactly like yours. Some other’s have thicker type that’s less readable and have the very small "u" under resist. I like this one better though. I think it’s the new, updated version. I also has brushing on the back that’s horizontal instead of vertical.

        I had it as a child and I used to think it was the best tool in the world. I have no idea what happened to it, I even asked some of my family. I also wanted to buy another one but all of them look awful.

        Dunno but this one’s cool, I like the idea of fishmemo

        Also does sunrise/sunset times, an underrated feature imo

        The one I owned had straps like this one. The W94HF-3AV also has a similar look, the GLX-5600-1 has the same tide/moon graph but with no fish… I will need several casios to fill the void

      I have one and it’s a great fitness/sleep tracking and work watch. I wore it nonstop for the past 18 months. I recently turned it off, threw it in a drawer and strapped on a Casio WS1600H. Sometimes its nice to have something less chunky and simple on your wrist.

    I currently have a F-91W, have had it for a year now and love it, but not a big fan of the plastic strap, anyone here replaced the strap before? I am thinking of going fancy and getting a nice Marine Nationale strap.

      I haven’t replaced the strap, but it can be done easily. There are arrows on the inside of the strap; push the bars in that direction to remove them. Replace it with an 18 millimeter strap.
