    Help choosing basic casio watch

    A friend of mine needs a basic watch for work so im looking for some recomendations.

    MUST:
    Be able to do 24 hour time
    White band/bezel
    Stop watch that goes longer than an hour
    small/thin/etc. its for a girl
    as cheap as possible

    PREFER:
    digital
    regular face not any crazy colors or backgrounds
    the traditional small square casios like the older cheap ones
    also has day/date

    I am hoping to find a basic casio that can do all this for like $20 which i dont think should be that hard to find but if necessary price can be higher.

    Something like a white F-91W would be perfect if the stopwatch did longer than an hour. any help would be great. Thanks

    Amazon.com: Casio G Shock G Lide White Resin Watch GLX5600-7DR: Casio: Watches

    This ticks every box except price.

    Are you sure you're looking for the right brand ? The cheapest G Shock on amazon.com at the moment runs 42 dollars, on my search. I'm curious as to where you think you're going to get a 20 buck g shock that meets the requirements.

    Also no G Shock is small or thin. But that one linked to is relatively so, or wears like it is at least.

    Perfect choice. White with all those features, this is what she needs.
    The Search function on vBulletin forums isn't very smart. If you want to search for a complete string in the G-Shock forum, or for posts which include multiple words, use Google, and enter site:forums.watchuseek.com/f17 into the search box. Then use normal google syntax after that to enter your search.

    Casio not only manufactures G-Shock's.
    Have a great day!

    Or something like this



    But they're right...it's hard to find a used, beat up G on eBay for $20. Be prepared to spend $50-$80 for a new basic G.

    $ 20 for a G Shock you might be able to get a Timex for close to that but that is clearly unreasonable. They normally start around $ 40 on amazon and go up especially for a color.

    For a girl, I'd also recommended the white Baby-G that Tsip85 mentioned. I have the purple/pink version and it fits my wrist pretty well. As everyone else mentioned, it'll probably cost at least $40+ though.

    I would have recommended the SDB-100 - unfortunately it doesn't come in white - only black, pink and bright lime-green. But the functions are excellent:
    100 hr timer
    100 hr stopwatch
    5 alarms
    pace maker
    second timezone
    should be available for around 20US$.
