OVERVIEW

Legendary. If the Casio F91W-1 Watch was to be compressed in to a single word, Legendary would be the best way to describe the historical piece of art. This breath taking timepiece dates back to 1991 when Casio released its’ first F91W models. Everyone was buzzing about it back then. Now, guess what everyone thinks about the F91W these days. Yes, you probably guessed it, still Legendary. This watch is a timeless masterpiece with its’ long history, vintage design, and very affordable price up to these days.

On the outside, A resin case with a mineral dial window is what this watch is made of. Its’ casing measures 37.5 by 33.5 by 8.5 millimeters. It also has a water resistant and ribbed resin band with a buckle closure. Surface tension blocks any liquid from penetrating the watch, but this is only effective to a certain degree of pressure. This is the reason why it is only marked as “WATER RESIST”. This battery has a life expectancy of at least three year. A back-light placed on the left side of the display serves as the watch’s night light. Quartz movement accuracy of around 30 seconds per month is to be expected of the watch. This time piece operates through pushing side mounted buttons. The two left buttons are for alarm cancellation, back light switch, stop watch control, lap time marker. It is also used for settings selection. The right buttons are for modes cycling such as changes in settings, switches between 12 or 24 hour modes. To check the legitimacy of your Casio watch, press the right button for three seconds, if you get the “Casio” sign, it means that your watch has genuine parts in it and it has a legitimate license from Casio.

The main reason why the F91W surpassed the test of time is its’ very affordable price. Back then in the 90’s, buying this watch would cost you 20.00 dollars. Today, you can buy it in Amazon.com for only 9.99 dollars. It is without a doubt, the best watch you can purchase for ten dollars to ever exist. Former President of the United States Barrack Obama even has an old picture where you can see him wearing the famous Casio F91W-1 watch.

See What Other Owners Are Saying About This Watch On Amazon

“I use this watch while kayaking, so it gets wet constantly. Never a leak or an internal failure, in spite of its lack of being “water proof”.

“Best power consumption of any watch on the planet. Almost nine years without a battery change and it still keeps going.”

“This watch is probably one of the best items I have ever owned. My first watch went through quite a few work days of dust, smoke, and water. The battery lasted close to ten years and did not lose very much time. As a matter of fact the band finally had enough and I stopped wearing it. Saw it available and bought another one. CANNOT beat the price or reliability. I give them as gifts all the time and you should too.”
