    So a bit of looking on the web yielded these Casio's

    They are the Casio Overland OV-100B-3AJF and OV-100D-1AJF respectively and they are 200m solar 3 handed (second, hour and min hands) simple watches.

    These watches warrant a look because even though they are not screw back watches, they do look substantial and are powered with a new solar cell called CTL1025 which is a small 2V cell. I came across this cell when I took apart a Casio solar/atomic black dialed Executive waveceptor (North American Casio) to transplant its receiver to a military inspired Casio Overland which I bought from a fellow forumer. I now have a Japan only overland that works in the United States and a North American only Casio that only works atomically in Japan.

    The small cell is good enough for a atomic/solar simple 3 hand watch, so it must be even better for just a solar version which should be uber reliable unlike the CTL-1616


    It looks very quartz Hamilton Khaki-ish but with a slightly cheaper price tag, 150 more meters and solar to boot.

    My only grip is that I wish that it was a perpetual date which one did not have to change manually but that is a small grip for everything this watch offers (i.e. a simple 3 hand analog only 200m casio with a steel case)

    This watch is next on my list of watches to get

    Cheers

    I really like the OV-100B-3AJF. Wouldn't mind picking one up myself in a brown strap rather than green.

    OVW-100BJ-3AJF

    The analog ones I posted the pic of are solar only. The pics Chronism posted are solar/ atomic but Japan only
