    The humble, yet classic casio f-91w, I couldn't resist!

    Hey everybody, it's been a long time since I've posted back here in casio domain, I have been dabbling in Breitling, Rolex, Steinhart, Citizen, broadening the old horizons a bit.

    However while I have eyes on the all black prg130-y and the stainless steel classic databank edb610, Steinhart Ocean-1 and Citizen Signature Grand Complication thereafter, I couldn't resist but add another must have for we casio freaks to my collection, and the good old f-91w it was!

    I was given one back in 1998 but being a reckless kid probably lost/broke it...but thought I'd add this to the Protreks, databanks and sole G-shock.

    I will try and post pics after it is said to arrive from amazon on 28.2.

    Now I'm sure a lot of you guys have the good old F-91w, why not share a few experiences and pics please. Thanks!

    I like the notion of 'dabbling' in Breitling and Rolex. Very casual.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Congrats!
    Now I can say that people with Breitlings and Rolexes sometimes buy a watch like mine too. I got my F-91W on December 27th last year, and so far it's been a pleasure having it. And it went 5 seconds fast since then, which is excellent (although on par with my other Casios). It's a great no-frills no-bling no-worries hardcore, basic, light and durable watch with personality for when you simply want to know what time it is. And it has fan pages on Facebook, people over there say it's the AK-47 of watches (haha). Looking forward to reading more answers in this thread!

    Re: The humble, yet classic casio f-91w, I couldn't resist!

    Hey friends! Thanks for the replies, when I say dabbling I must clarify I have not purchased a watch other than a casio to date ;) but of course that will change!

    MdN-Thanks!
    hehe casio's are among the top watches in their own right, no watch can match their features and convenience, and the +/-5secs is superb precision, even the Rolex's lose time. The movements are complicated and aesthetic in action rather than accurate. What can beat an atomic time signal? Well, £200 is the difference in price between the prg130 and paw1500, I just feel it's not that necessary but the azimuth compass is to be considered if u truly r a hiker.

    It will be a nice addition, no9 to my collection before the hard hitters come in.
    I love the AK-47 analogy but how do you find the water resistance? It's only splash proof, I remember the salesgirl telling me in 1997 (corr) so the 30m is a pleasant delusion.

    Look forward to it and the discussion here on the quintessential casio!

    I don't expose my watches to water unless I have to, and with this one I haven't had to yet, but according to the internet it can either leak in the first week or you can take it swimming, dive 5 meters and wear it in sauna I guess it's water resistant enough, but Casio doesn't want to guarantee anything more than splash-resistance for this price.

    I wear mine when I'm running (or did, until I injured myself!). My F91W is the most accurate non-radio controlled watch that I own.
    Outstanding functionality at a great price.

    Thanks for the pic Steve, I'm quite excited actually! That G is a rhino in comparison despite similarities in design. You made me contemplate forking out an extra $200 for radio signalling in the PAW1500 when the prg 130 looks the same...hmm
