    Question Alternative to Casio F-91W

    I love the soul and vintage feel of the Casio F-91W. The size and weight of the watch feels perfect on my wrist. It's thin enough to slip under my shirt cuff. Light enough to never notice it there. Accurate enough to know it'll still keep good time 6 years from now. Low-key/cheap enough to not garner any unwanted attention while on vacation. The only other watch in my collection is my 16610 Submariner; And while I love it to death, it really has a hard time ticking all the boxes that i've listed for the F-91W.

    So why am I looking for an alternative to this otherwise, perfect watch?

    My only real nit-pick with it, is that it looks like a cheap $9 watch (which it is is). But it's hard to argue it's utilitarian functionality. So i'm reaching out to the WUS community to see if you guys have any alternatives that can come close to the iconic f-91w, that look at least a bit more presentable for the office.

    Can be mechanical or quartz. Analog or digital. Expensive or cheap... Anything goes!

    There was a recent thread about classier/stainless steel digital watches and at a moderate price, it seems like the consensus was Pulsar and (oddly enough) Nixon with the most choices.

    There are plenty of recent and vintage options as well.

    I'm not the right person to ask on advice for small conventional watches.
    Choose a job you love, and you'll never work a day in your life because that field isn't hiring.
