    Hah, I have one of these and really like it. It's an update to the venerable 290, as worn by Tom Cruise (mission impossible) and Robert Mueller 😃. Wow, that's cheap. I thought mine was a great buy at $49 delivered from tictacarea - might be a good alternative if the amazon ones sell out. They have a red one too. It's a beefy watch with big buttons - great for cold hands or working in the dark.

    Hey watchnerd - did you know it's free delivery if you're with amazon prime? Geez, I might have to buy another one! Thats < $40 delivered if you're with prime.

      Great thanks, added to the title.
      I wasn't sure as I don't have prime & it didn't come up as an option to purchase prime at the checkout.

        I do, and tested it 😉

    •  

      I don’t think it’s free shipping with Prime, I’m fairly sure they upped the minimum spend to $49 for free international shipping with Prime some time ago.

      Edit: Tested with my Prime account, shipping isn’t free.

      •  

        Ok bummer, looks like it's only free on $49 spend.

      •  

        my bad, you're right; didn't notice that. Need to spend $5 more on something

        •  

          Buy 2. Use one each day whilst the other one is getting dried.

  •  

    No way, that's so cheap for all those features.

    • +6 votes

      all those features

      Home Time/World Time/Alarm/Timer/Stopwatch/Backlight/100-200m WR is pretty much the stock standard feature set of every Casio since about 1995.

      Anything above that is an actual selling point.

      • +7 votes

        200m wr and a 10 year battery are the two that really stand out to me.

        •  

          At this point there's probably hundreds of Casio models with those features. People don't realise Casio puts out over 500 models a year these days, across all of their ranges.

            @Bunnyburger: Unfortunately with most Casios, it's not just limited to gold diggers and they do also double as male birth control devices/digital chastity belts.

      •  

        true that! all other extra features are useless bhuahahha

      •  

        Cos Apple claimed most that was not possible :P

        •  

          Saving that for the next 10 years marketing.

      •  

        Not really. Look at the most popular model, the F91W for example. It only has the time, alarm, stopwatch, a very poor sidelight and minimal water resistance (not even 50m). Some models have a dual time; only a few have world time. Dial lighting varies from barely-adequate to Electro Luminescence.

        •  

          my PRW-50Y-1B ftw! 😁

        •  

          I did say since 1995.

          The F-91W is the oldest Casio model still in production (introduced in 1989) and is the exception to that rule.

          It also costs as much as an average take-away meal so you can't really fault it for not doing much besides keeping time.

          only a few have world time. Dial lighting varies from barely-adequate to Electro Luminescence.

          If by "few", you mean thousands upon thousands of models now.

          That hasn't been the case for a very long time. You'll struggle to find a modern-day G-Shock that doesn't have automatic timekeeping synchronisation either via smartphone link or radio-controlled timekeeping.

      You should always buy what you like as you're the one that is going to be wearing it, however that model is 100M & has a plastic lens.

  •  

    Stopppppppp so many watches.

    What a beautiful thing for $44

  •  

    Anyone know how this compares to Dw5600-1? I just ordered it based another deal couple days ago.

      They're almost identical in terms of specs but the DW-291H is noticeably bigger/chunkier. Though the DW-291H isn't technically a G-Shock unlike the DW-5600, so it won't have the patented multi-layered urethane cushioning and floating module internals of a G-Shock that make them so indestructible. That being said, it'll still be rugged enough to take a beating.

      Personally, the DW-5600 is far more iconic and worthy of having in your collection, it is the father of the G-Shock "Square" range and pretty much identical to the very first G-Shock model launched in 1983 (the DW-5000C).

      • +1 vote

        Cool I think I'll stick with the 5600 because of the G-Shock properties. Cheers

    • +3 votes

      I have both. This one is bigger and more legible. The bigger buttons are easier to use; a lot easier to use, but how often do you need to use them? I use the light button most, sometimes scroll through to the alarm or timer. The displays on both are fairly minimal and give you what you need; date and time. The screen on this one is not recessed which means it may be get scratched more easily. I've had the 5600 for over 10 years and no scratches. I choose this one most at night time or outdoors in the cold; the 5600 at night time, but not the cold. I wear them both at other times, but because I have a choice I tend to wear what suits the occasion or my mind.

    Question. Looking for a watch for my 10yo son.

    I see the word beefy mentioned above and in the YT link. Googling returns https://www.casio-intl.com/asia/en/wat/watch_detail/DW-291H-... which is the same model number minus the CF on the end, also it is in the 'youth' category.

    Am I missing something? Is this likely to be okay for youth (can't see face dimensions anywhere) or is it 'beefy' for adults?

    TIA

    • +1 vote

      That's the exact same watch as this DW-291H, it just has an olive-coloured LCD (the final sequence of the model number differentiates them: DW-291H-1AVCF vs DW-291H-9AV).

      For a 10-year old, this would be pretty chunky/oversized (anything with a case diameter of over 45mm would be huge for a child's wrist) but then again they're 10 years old and thus it probably doesn't matter and/or they might actually like the massive size.

      •  

        Thanks. Yeah I figured the last two letters were for the colour, but didn't want to rely on partial model number matching and wind up with a massive watch for my son.

        Still can't compute how there's a stack of adults calling this watch 'beefy' (for their arms) yet its in the 'youth' section, just odd. But yeah, some might like the massive size, good point.

  •  

    I love these old school Casio watches (and I don't even wear a watch) and this is a great price.

  •  

    The 50mm watch face size is huge - and too big for me - but it looks like an excellent watch otherwise.

    •  
      •  

        Right. Confusing. The amazon link has no dimensions listed. The casio link is to a different model number (albeit a minor difference), which suggests this is huge (even for an adult) while placing the watch in the youth section of their wesbite.

        Not a shot at the post, just unfortunate than none of this aligns.

        •  

          Never trust Amazon specs anyway.

          •  

            @WatchNerd: True. That was why I was at least hoping for an exact model number match up.

            Thanks for the post anyway, appreciate the deals, will keep looking for my son (and daughters) ;) keep the deals coming!

        Cancelled the 291 and got the G-Shock classic instead.

      That's pretty much the average price according to Camel.
      You'll find lots of Casio watches around that price with less than 200m & plastic lens.

      •  

        ahh fair enough

    •  

      I bought mine for $18 about a decade ago. One of my favourite watches.

  •  

    Does anyone have a recommendation of where to buy genuine replacement bands for older G Shock models? This post had got me thinking of pulling my old G Shock out for a wear and noticed the band now needs replacing.

    •  

      Ebay…

    • +1 vote

      What Googleyahoo69 said.

      Enter your G-Shock's model number (you can find it on the metal case-back) followed by words 'band'/'strap' into an eBay search.

      There's usually a plethora of generic imitation resin straps and genuine Casio straps; the generic ones will be about half the price of the Casio ones.

      •  

        Thanks! I jump on now.

  •  

    i'm okay with buying this despite it being from amazon as they're probably selling it at a loss (i don't like amazon because of their censorship of free speech).

    •  

      Most businesses offload stock cheap if it's been sitting on the shelf too long. It ends up becoming a liability. Especially battery powered watches.

    Battery will last longer than 10 years. Mines still running and sitting in a drawer and the straps melted off and so did the part of the case where the straps connect so I can't replace them.

    •  

      Yeah what's with the watch bands melting? One of my casio watches suffered the same fate!

      •  

        I think it's just due to Australian heat and humidity and rubber being derived from natural materials. It's worse with everything having that soft touch rubber coating that turns sticky after a few summers.

    Resin strap is a nuisance. Replace with metal bracelet for ease of use.

      Yeah it's been posted a few times on here.

    Not sure anyone would use all the features on some of these, especially if you have a phone handy. The expensive battery replacement seems a bit much but The watch is pretty cheap.

    I picked up a casio g-shock ga-2100 from a previous deal, have never really owned a G shock but like it as it's not overly bulky. Would be nice if it had auto EL and the digital display fairly small, but good design.

    Just waiting for The Day these guys collaborate with Fitbit, and wouldn't need to wear both. Mind you the charge 4 is pretty slim to sleep with.

      For the price of this watch it wouldn't make sense to pay a professional to replace the battery.

      It's not hard to do it yourself. CR2025 twin pack is $4.99 @ Bunnings.

      •  

        Yeah batteries cost stuff all and wouldn't be hard, just didn't think it would be pressure tested etc but agree with what you're saying.

      Just waiting for The Day these guys collaborate with Fitbit, and wouldn't need to wear both.

      Already happened (though they didn't need to collaborate with Fitbit; Casio were making smartwatches before the term smartwatch even existed).

      Check out the G-Shock GBX-100 and its bigger brother the G-Shock GBD-H1000.

        Cheers will have a look, not many models that support it, hr and steps etc write be better than half the other crap. As long as the platform and software is half descent and accepted (Fitbit/Garmin connect is known to be pretty good and Been around forever)
