    how a standard 100m casio is built up - W-741.

    i think the w-741 is a great watch they should still produce it. it has basic functions only plus the illumination light. and its FAT. i mean its 100m WR and its fat like a dw-5600e g-shock. and this watch has a really loud alarm compared to all the jokes alarms on gw-m5600 and other newer g-shocks. i got it for like 10 euro only from far east.

    in parts:



    i forgot to take a pic from the face, hers one from google:

    The W-741 is simplicity at its best. Excellent breakdown shots of the watch

    yes i wonder its not more famous.

    when i ordered that watch i thought its the same size like a f-91w just with different design. when i opened the box i had a real piece of watch in my hands, with big steel buttons and a case in the size of a g-shock.

    I owned one of the twin sister of this w741. Here it is:



    This model really is a survivor

    I owned it for more than 12 years (I have to check this, but when thinking about the date of bought I believe it's more close to a 15 years kingdom). It has survived hard use during all those years, swimming-pool, ocean, sea, skiing, biking and heavy biking DH/4x/BMX falls... with only minor scratches. I think the strap had been changed 3 or 4 times, probably the same for the battery.

    I really regret its loss

    EDIT: I'm trying the "I'm feeling lucky" Google feature. This watch has been lost in Budapest on the 19/08/2008 during EZ Rollers concert, in the concert park close to the Danube called Zöld Pardon. Call me if you have information.

    Looks like a great watch.

    I've been looking out for more traditional/classic Casio lately ( just picked up an AQ-100 and ARW-320)

    i had a problem with the module, or lets say my brother in law had it, as i gave the watch to him. i never had a casio with a failing module, so i dont know how he made it (he is a teen).

    however i told him to give me back the watch, and i repaired it by using another module from a f-105, its exactly the same and was fitting perfectly. it was some 2 or 3 years ago, you could get the w741 very cheap on bay, now i cant find it anymore. i wish casio made exactly a watch like it, but with cdt and dual time. a classic 100m WR standard watch, with the standard+ features and the classic look, like the old marlins were.

    I owned several 100M models as my earliest watches. I loved them. One of them was certainly the W741 as I can remember the way it looked.

    But I haven't seen any for sale since about 1992.

    Gerry, that is a classic, and the advert's photo shows it off to great advantage. I might have even owned one at one time. Around what era did they come out? I really like the idea of the loud alarm. Does it have a stopwatch?

    Do you mean like a chronograph? Well, sure, it was is 1/100th one.

    Whole specs would be something like: dual 24hour modes, alarm, hour bip, 1/100th chrono, illuminator and 100m wr.

    Come to think of it, no, I never owned that one.

    I don't remember any 100M model that only had 3 buttons.
