    Casio vs. Daniel Wellington



    Well, I was skimming YouTube and I came across this.

    Re: Casio vs. Daniel Wellington

    Okay; so I would never buy a DW.... thus, I'm biased.

    Furthermore, DW is sold on the various patterns of NATO straps. Thus, I have to disagree with the YouTube commentator.

    For a Joe Blow college student, I'm not sure they'd even consider or are even aware of the cited Casio.

    Just my thoughts

    Unfortunally DWs marketing is strong.
    People in the search for a trendy watch will probably rather follow the marketing then the watch technical specs.
    And maybe the retail margin is higher for DW, too.

    Just try to find a shop in a fashion oriented mall (i.e. Airport) that has DW and Casio and a sales clerk to point you in the right direction.
    You see no pictures in my post?
    Photobucket decided to lock my pics behind a 40$/month prescription service.
    I used their services since 2009 so the most of my old threads have Photobucket pics inside.
    If you stumble across one of those threads and want to see the pic, PM me and i will re-attach it.
    What can we learn from all the lost information?

    I voted casio for a couple of reasons

    Short term in the US the marketing will beat out casio but long term and internationally casio will win every time.

    Casio knows no boundries and has no boundries, from school kids to military to presidents and everything in between quality, durability, practicality will always prevail.

    F-91w 30 years and going.....

    DW= Danny Wellington? I thought it was douch wear. 😃 Jk. Jk.

    I like this Casio. It reminds me of Nomos, which I've admired from afar for so long. I might pick one of these Casios up.

    Daniel who???

    Maybe I'm in the minority, but I've never heard of Daniel Wellington watches before. And now that I have heard of them, I still don't care.

    Re: Casio vs. Daniel Wellington

    I watched that vid when he posted it. I was a heartbeat away from buying it until I read a couple of reviews complaining of the short hands. They were absolutely correct; and now I cannot unsee it, lol.

    It would be perfect otherwise.

    Yeah, I'm assuming the short hands are a no go for most WIS .

    Very true, there is a lot to like here otherwise.

    They're a trashy ghetto watch company sold on flashy NATO Straps. Mostly with subpar specs.

    That said they are popular.

    Honestly, I'm not sure why Timex hasn't rolled out a NATO Strap Timex Weekender series to compete with DW.

    Either way, no one seems to buy a second DW.
