Did anyone else have one of these precursors to the DW-290? I know there were several others in the 200 series, but I remember seeing this one a lot more than others. This is one of those watches I wish I had kept. Probably the only watch I've ever owned that I can say was perfect, with no issues or negative things about it.
I think with the popularity of square watches, I wonder why Casio hasn't made a new square model to replace the DW290. They should be all over that market opportunity. And what number could they use? Has DW-300 already been used by a G-Shock series? Is the "numbering" problem the only reason they haven't replaced the odd-looking 290 with something newer? I think the reason the DW-290 is still somewhat popular is because it hasn't been replaced with anything new.
This little film shows several watches in the 200 series including the 260.
