    The downside of this watch = There is no coating to Titanium

    Below is the first scratch at the fold Clasp, I believe it happened when I was adjusting my bracelets’ length.

    I didn’t aware about it, not until I finished my bracelets adjustment. ☹

    Here is the picture:

    In addition to foregoing, this watch does not have battery indicator level.
    There is no reference in its dial stating this matter.
    But there is a feature of overcharge prevention.



    Casio Lineage is nice watch for small-hand wrist.

    It is very light, thin, quite elegant, and affordable - IMO.
    But it does not have any coating..


    Thank you for reading this thread :)

    You review got me interested in owning one now!

    Quick question... how big is the case size without the crown?

    Not much difference. The Crown was small.

    I think around 41.2 - 41.3 mm

    Re: Review Casio Lineage LIW-M610TDS-1A2 (JDM)

    Thank you for posting up the comparison specifications of this Casio Lineage range.
    I think the 610 is a great find!

    I like these watches and have been shopping this very same range and recently picked up a second-hand
    LIW-T100T. Here are a few pics for those interested.

    I really like the watch and it compares favorably to the Oceanus S100 and T100.
    It is smaller thinner and less chunky than the Oceanus. The Oceanus
    is different really. I own auto's and quartz about evenly these days.
    I like Casio three handers, I'm probably the only one on this board!!!!
    The Lineage, Overland and Core Casio have some nice 3 hand waveceptor watches.

    I appreciate the Tough Movement specs and especially the auto hand correction.
    It's possible this is the thinnest and smallest Tough Mvt spec watch, but I have no way of
    verifiing that.

    When my watch arrived it was scuffed and had gone to reserve mode
    (hands all straight up, date at 1) I soaked it in light and gave it a lite polish.
    After aligning the hands (automatic in this watch w/ tough mvt, you just have to involke it) and now
    it is perfectly aligned and is picking up the Atomic time synch signal from Ft Collins nightly.
    The dial is very high contrast which I really appreciate in any watch.

    I think it's nice on the silicon/rubber. What do you guys think?

    The crystal is domed and scratch resistant. The dial is a standout with
    applied markers, nice lume and a cool fine lined pattern vertically.
    The world time on this watch is simple, just push C till you reach the city
    you want and hands change. You know it is in world time mode as the
    second hand remains on the city code.

    It's svelte at 44X40X10.5mm and ultra light Titainium.

    Of course, light thin svelte and 40mm is out of style at this point, but for folks
    looking at a 3 hander, 40mm watch and with a nice set of features, along with perfect
    accuracy via nightly atomic clock updates, this watch is
    a fantastic value.

    Hope this helps anyone looking in this segment. Be patient if shopping
    used as prices seem to be all over the place.

    Pic notes: Wrist is 7.5", I polished the watch after the bracelette shot.

    Looks great with the silicon strap! And watch sit perfectly on your wrist. If you don’t mind me asking, how big is your wrist?

    I’m hesitating between the T100 and the m610. Debating between size vs function.

    Most of my watches in my collection have lug to lug sizes of 45mm or less

    My wrist size is 7.5". 40mm feels like my sweet spot, but have watches much larger and smaller.
    The T100T doesnt have an alarm or stopwatch functions, but I mostly do those with
    internet connected things these days or a dive watch bezel.
    I'm pleasantly surprised how handsome the watch is in person! It wears super nice.
    The T100T is a bit hard to find. I had looked for quite a while before I found this.
