My Wrist-check for today is the Casio A168WA-1.
I owned the all black Casio F-91W back in the day, it was replaced quickly with my first G-Shock. But I always wanted the dress version of the F-91W - well I finally picked one up. Casio started re-manufacturing this classic a few years ago (2015 I think) in both gold and stainless steel.
My new Casio A168WA-1 has a great retro look being both sleek and stylish yet maintaining a no-nonsense appeal….yes, all of the is possible. The bracelet feels great with no squeaky noises, binding or pinching. The time and date on the display is crisp, sharp, with plenty of contrast - makes it very easy to read at a glance. I may consider swapping out the 18mm bracelet for a nato strap if I can find one that complements the LCD screen surrounded by black, gold, red, and blue - might be a challenge.
The word on the street is that the F-91W guts is pretty accurate with Casio claiming +/-30sec a month - but actual owners reporting a loss of only 3-5sec per month. It is said that some have used this watch as a means to set the time on their other watches - I’ll have to keep an eye on the accuracy.
Online retailers are selling these retro Casio’s for over $60 but you can buy this one (Casio A168WA-1) on Amazon for under $18.

Hi Randy, Is there a major difference between Casio and Aragon watches? I've been considering both and need some professional opinion. And besides, I'm a sports geek, so it has to be something that can survive mountaineering and hiking in the dangerous rocks areas. I would also consider a watch that can be connected to my smartphone. Randy Bonnette Kinesiology department - @writemyessaytoday methodology.
I'm so close to ordering one of these as it hits all the nostalgia notes the new G Shock 5000 series gives me at a small fraction of the cost.
*I know the technology is not on par, thus the price, but that isn't the driving factor for my attraction to the G Shock...

Lol yes, a good look indeed, although no cyclops on mine. I surely did pay a premium to delete the cyclops and all that.

Your watch is also missing the "scratch-resistant mineral crystal." And the wings on the short end of the second hand.
