    Absolute legend, PJC!

    If you're looking for reliability in a watch, look no further. These things are built like tanks.

    I've had one since 2008 and it's still going strong. It's needed a battery change just thrice in 10 years. It's clasp broke a few months ago, but that was coz of my own stupidity. I'm getting it repaired and the quote for it is just $20 for an original clasp replacement including labour.

    •  

      It's needed a battery change just thrice in 10 years

      That's like my piece of shit TAG, i don't bother and it sits in the bottom of the draw.

      My Casio Protrek solar on the other hand is going on 10 years and not needed any battery replaced.

      Thats about how long batteries last, 3 years on average, i have an old early 2000s citizen ecodrive titanium that has never needed a battery change or service, close to 20 years later still going strong.

    Nice, it seems number 70 ended?

    Do they have solar models or the ones that doesn't need battery replacement?

      I think No. 50 is an impressive all-rounder but take your time considering.

  • +1 vote

    Could you tell me which one has sapphire window and if possible titanium, and date and day functions?
    I have an Edifice that I like the functions and display, but it is stainless steel, too heavy for me, looking for something similar but lighter.

    Many thanks.

      but it is stainless steel, too heavy for me

      I've never had to take off a stainless steel watch because it was too heavy. Maybe you should try lifting bro.

      Also you pay extra for titanium & budget models tend to scratch easier.

    • +1 vote

      Even in Ti these Casios are relatively heavy. I have an oceanus in Ti and it weighs a ton compared to my similar spec Citizens.

    Reported to the mods for being sexist, as there is not a single women's watch here.
    Lady's please pm me your phone numbers to organise a petition to the mods.

    Terrific work there PJC.
    Watch 56 is my pick of the bunch.

        Must resist!! but are they better than seiko sea urchin though? they are cheaper for sure. I collect only casio g-shock so I have no idea about edifice

    that's ….an impressive list :) Any sapphire glass with solar and metal bands ?

      There are some Citizen Eco-Drive's in the description under Other current watch deals.
      No sapphire though.

        • +5 votes

          Not sure why you yourself are getting so upset when OP has asked for an example on where they're cheaper and yet you literally cannot name a single site.

          Even IF the buyer is saving "a couple of bucks," it is still a saving. OP has never endorsed the RRP at all and if anything, his past posts have warned against purchasing at the RRP.

          @nikym81: Yes, I know, but they didn't have stock when I compiled this list and they don't have stock now! Why would I knowingly list a bargain without stock?

      • +14 votes

        Awesome post PJC, thank you. Shame a few don’t acknowledge the effort you’ve gone to in compiling this and similar posts. So easy to berate rather than congratulate. It’s the easy option. Best to ignore some of the comments and just keep on doing what you do best. Enjoy your day :)

        • -2 votes

          Dude you guys are a joke. I'm not mocking the time he put in the post but the misleading % savings. PS not all are the cheapest available. But wait you guys gotta have each others back and all, I get it.

        •  

          @nikym81: You found an example without stock. That's why I omitted it when I researched during the week. Why would I list a cheaper price without stock? Skywatches too had some cheaper prices without stock. As always, there were a few cheaper prices on eBay but if I doubt their status I exclude them. One particular vendor had up to 8 cheaper prices but with a feedback rating of 91.6% he doesn't exist for me.

        • -1 vote

          @PJC:
          OMG FYI it was in stock when I searched. By the way this has nothing to do with saving a few dollars. You're posting huge savings over 50% when they are in fact only a few %. You're misleading people here. People end up spending money they didnt want to because they believe you gave them a huge bargain when in reality there's a dozen sellers all within a few dollars of one another. Post REAL savings.

        • +2 votes

          @nikym81: most of us who look at the watch deals are aware that nobody sells at RRP, BUT we know that 30% happens often, 50% sometimes and 60% rarely , and better than 60% we know stock will move.

          Some people also tracks watches on camel camel camel which is an indicator of how low they have been historically …. they are seasoned enough to not just go with % on a day but % over time for historic lows..

          the starbuy deals that just passed, I picked up a citizen 8180 for $120 AU with AU warranty … that is lower than any ebay seller, and lower than Amazon historical, and will be delivered in 2 business days.

          Most people also check other suppliers to make sure that the deal is the best, maybe Ebay has a special % off, and that they have stock, but it's one hell of a starting point.

          e.g

          https://camelcamelcamel.com/Watch-Casio-Edifice-Ef-126d-2ave...

          you can always check yourself to see what sort of deal you are getting.

          @nikym81:

          So you say….

          Screenshot it next time?

          And finding 1 cheaper (which you can’t prove you have) is inconsequential because of how many are listed.

          And, rrp on watches is a joke. We know. And most ppl on ozbargain know it.

          In fact these posts provide the evidence that rrp is a joke.

        • +1 vote

          @garage sale: yeah dude I agree with you 100% but all it takes a few noobs to come across the post and be fooled in to saving over 50% when it's not. I'm speaking on behalf of those noobs. The majority research. Either way I just think its misleading

        • +2 votes

          @nikym81:

          But noobs come across the huge rrp reductions when they go searching for watches on the internet….. and see that in isolation. Way more chance they will think they have found a real special….

          Like I said a collective post like this thread provides the evidence and hopefully the realisation that rrp on watches is a joke.

          ….maybe you ought to complain to the ACCC about all the ‘misleading’ rrp watch websites.

      "I don't get how these are bargains "

      All of the "stuff" people post can be obtained "every day on ebay amazon etc". That's why they can be posted here, and people buy them.

      The secret, Grasshopper, is finding such "stuff", linking to it, and posting it here for people to see it. Some even take the time to check that they are the cheapest, sort through the absolute best of such bargains, and may even take the time to give a description of each and place them in some sort of price order.

      There are diamonds littering the ground all over this planet - they are the hardest terrestrial mineral and don't erode. If you are in the right place at the right time, you can pick one up for free. I mention this as a metaphor, and will leave the assessment of how it answers your plaint as an exercise for a rainy day. It, too, is free.

      That doesn't make a $25 1 carat diamond ring any less of a bargain.

      I realise that you yourself may have bad memories of being exposed to such strategies, [ ObHint: You can get punctuation marks and capital letters a lot cheaper if you load a Linux rather than purchasing the more expensive Microsoft or Apple varieties], but others among us appreciate the effort.

    Excellent work PJV!

    FYI, a bit of an off topic as PJV didn't list the below models.

    I own two Casio Edifice Bluetooth EQB501s and they are excellent watches. I also picked up a used EQB500 (black watch with black bands) for $200 AUD and it looks magnificent.

    If anyone has questions relating to them, I am more than happy to answer.

      They arr nice watches

      Do you use the bluetooth function much?

      • +1 vote

        Sorry, I didn't get a notification… Anyhow, I just realised that he notification system changed…

        To answer your question, no I don't use the bluetooth function much but they are excellent for keeping your watch sync'd with a somewhat reliable time source. The only notification you can set on the EQB500 and EQB501 is a limited range of email alerts. All it does is point your date hands to a dot when you have a new email. There are other uses for the bluetooth function such as changing timezones, setting alarms, looking at stop watch times, etc. I personally went for the style

        If you're looking for a more "smart" watch, I did suggest the Citizen bluetooth Eco drives ones. I do own a BZ1000-54E (AUS model is BZ1001-86E) and it does notification a lot better (emails, whatsapp, phone calls, etc with a tone + vibration) than the Casio bluetooth ones.

        Here's my two favorite bluetooth timepieces so far.

    Thanks heaps PJC, deeper in the doghouse with the missus with each post, but at least I'm able to tell exactly how long I'm in for.

    WARNING #1

    The RRP’s the OP has listed appear to be the highest price he has found on the web, which may be higher than the RRP. The onus is on the OP to demonstrate these are RRP’s if he chooses to list them. I think the word ‘conjured’ is reasonable in this context.

    This is despite Casio often listing their RRP’s on their various websites. For example for the first watch listed the OP lists an RRP of USD 140.00, when Casio itself lists the RRP as USD 49.95.

    Accordingly the prices at best merely represent the range available on the net, in which case the “% off RRP” figures are not only meaningless but obviously misleading.

    Many watches are high priced discretionary luxury items. Am I the only one who cares if members and non-members alike are misled into making a purchase they wouldn’t normally make?

      I look at camel camel camel to see if the reduced price is an everyday "street" price or a historic low ….

  • +13 votes

    WARNING #2

    Following my first point, even if the maximum discovered price is the RRP, using them in this way is highly controversial as voted by OzBargain members themselves.

    The mods have yet to act on this, though I’m reasonably confident that at some stage they will.

    Companies are notorious for nominating inflated RRP’s, especially for watches, so that any “% off RRP” figures are effetively meaningless and misleading.

    Note the OP had to be discouraged by the mods from simply listing these figures as “% off” (without even mentioning RRP) following complaints by members after a long repeated history of doing so.

    At least one mod shares some of my concerns.

    WARNING #3

    Following warnings #1 and #2, there is persuasive evidence there exists a cohort of watch enthusiasts coordinating their voting in relation to both posts and comments. Not one member that I have suggested as members has chosen to deny this, despite repeated opportunities – they generally merely attack and seek to introduce red herrings.

    I believe this belies a contempt for members and non-members alike as they seek to manipulate what is visible, especially to non-members. The more this happens, the more the discourse reduces to an insular echo chamber by the ‘usual suspects’ who take my comments very personally. That cannot be good long-term for OzBargain.

    My focus is on the misleading nature of the post, and that is entirely reasonable.

  • +10 votes

    WARNING #4

    Following warning #1, #2 and #3, you cannot therefore establish from the OP’s posts alone whether any of the watches listed are bargains, and this is ‘OzBargain’. There may be a lot of effort put into the post, but you just cannot tell.

    To do that readers will need to do their own research, especially of price timeline information on Camel, at least for Amazon listings.

    Note the approach adopted by the OP is in stark contrast to say respected members like @WatchNerd, who chooses not to list assumed or real RRP’s but instead attempts to compare the price to historical levels, usually using Camel. You are therefore able to establish very quickly whether a bargain is for the taking or not.

    For the record I am not a retailer, and have never posted a genuine deal on OzBargain. I rely instead on the strength of my arguments. Several members have sought to speak for all members, based on their length of membership or posting history, however they only speak for themselves.

    While I often respect loyalty, I think the displays on OzBargain recently have been misguided as the posts by @PJC are very obviously misleading. I am not shy in calling this out, especially as @PJC is rarely shy about critiquing the posts of others.

      I tried to say the same thing but I got negged like crazy. As I demonstrated in my post earlier if you take time to search you can find them cheaper. Anywho its misleading, people thinking they're getting a 60% deal when it's only a few %

      • +1 vote

        Don't get upset that you got negged after negging with an invalid reason. You need to find one of the deals cheaper elsewhere.

        • +5 votes

          I did find the first one I searched for cheaper elsewhere by $6 bucks or so. That's not the point I'm trying to make. People come here, see 60%, impulse buy believing they got a genuine 60% off deal. What if they wanted to spend that money elsewhere but didnt purely believing they genuinely got 60% off and didnt want to miss it. Now the problem is the next seller has it listed for a few dollars more, as a matter of fact the next 20 sellers have it for only a few dollars more making the saving FAR less than 60%. Post the bargain but use real world figures. If the closest competitor is 30% then use that but if there's 20 sellers all withing 5% well then sorry it's not 60%. I get it you guys post bargains and all stick together like an internet gang. I respect the bargains and time gone in to posts but I hate misleading % savings for a few likes. Call a spade a spade

          I did find the first one I searched for cheaper elsewhere by $6 bucks or so.

          They had no stock when I researched this week, so I listed a different vendor for that model. They also have no stock today. Are you certain I should include it?

          If there is an issue with the title or description you are meant to report it to the mods and let them deal with it.

          Learn the rules and the community won't remove your neg vote in future.

          @WatchNerd: I don't care about removing my neg. Revoke my right to vote for all I care. I was just trying to tell other members to research before they go by the rrp and savings listed by the OP. That got out of hand. Anyway you win today internet, I'm done

        •  

          It's not about winning, my first reply was to your comment where you said you were negged like crazy, so I am trying to explain to you why that happened.

          If you didn't neg the deal with an invalid reason then you wouldn't have got all those crazy negs.
          Sorry for trying to help explain it to you.

        No, you did not demonstrate that you found one cheaper.

        And one, is not really significant.

    • +5 votes

      Thank you for your insightful analysis, I was also mislead by the % savings noted in the post description. I checked out the RRP's from Casio's website and they are noticeably lower than the prices that PJC has used as a reference. It does make sense that any potential savings should be compared to the manufacturers RRP rather than the normal price a retailer might charge as this can vary significantly.

        Any ozbargainer worth his salt won’t take bargains at face value. But this community service of putting together top xx lists is akin to walking into a watch shop.,… which is definitely worth the effort and accolades provided.

        •  

          But at the same time, the list is overwhelming. Clicking on 60+ links in the one bargain is just OTT.. (Props to PJC, great effort, but sometimes more is less). I'm into my watches but there's no way I can distinguish each model on their name/title alone.

      •  

        rrp gets trickey with batches especially when a model changes to a new colour face perhaps ….I know an old colour of Seiko turtle was RRP $599, the following year, same watch different colour was RRP $699 …. there is only so much time you can spend researching, and people can check on camel camel camel before hitting the buy button to see how cheap a watch has been in the past and if it's a street price or a clearance price they are being offered.

  •  

    Looking to find a gift for mate who likes watches (has a large "Japanese" collection) but is not that much of a serious collector, I think most items are in the low-mid range price point.

    Those Bluetooth ones that WaveZero mentioned look awesome but could be over my budget.

    I randomly checked a few from the OP list but unable to find out where they are manufactured?

    I'm a watch noob, can any OZB'ers recommend a decent watch around the $150 mark and is "made in Japan" similar in the styles of those Casio Edifice - or would that be too much wishful thinking?

  •  

    Too many choices …..for my meager brain, didn't realise they made so many chronos in so many combinations …. I noticed only had 2 solar watches …if only I had a need for stopwatch function, and glasses good enough that I could read the stop watch …

    Thanks PJC - Great collection..

    I see number 19 – ♂ CASIO EDIFICE EFR-552L-2A(ebay.com.au) ULL5 = NOW $94.38 ▶ 67% off RRP

    BUT I get $109.29 with PULL5 - Price increase ? $14.91 increase :-(

      Yes, a price increase. I suppose they got confident having sold 37. I've replaced it with a new eBay vendor cheaper than that increased price - only 1 left. Thanks for telling me.

    Number 11 is more expensive. Great Post as always
    https://m.ebay.com.au/itm/CASIO-EDIFICE-EFR527L-7A-EFR-527L-...
    $94.03 with pull5 code. One left

      Yes, that vendor increased another price earlier too. Now replaced with a listing only a little more expensive than the original. Thanks for telling me.

    Thanks PJC appreciate the hard work you put in to bring these deals to us!

    Do you know if casio make any smaller sized watches? I saw a few but they're huge 44m diameter!

    I have skinny wrists so I'm looking for something under 40mm that looks like something you'd wear with office attire (leather band)
