About this deal

Functionality is basic - time, alarm countdown and stopwatch, but do I really need a compass and barometer for everyday use? The only issue I do have is that the adjust button is quite recessed and for a sausage fingered person such as myself it can be difficult to press.

I had been keeping an eye on this model for a while after watching a number of videos on YouTube (Watch Geek, Urban Gentry etc.

Whether I'm hiking in the wilderness or navigating the urban jungle, I can trust this timepiece to stay unscathed. Compared to G-Shock Squares I have the display is not quite as large or as clear but that is a minor criticism. Likes: Everything, mostly that this piece is a far better daily beater than anything else in my collection including the solar fuelled G-Shocks that I own. The Casio Men's DW290-1V Classic Alarm Chronograph Sport Watch has proven itself to be an absolute gem in the world of timekeeping.

The watch is comfortable, quite sturdy, you can put different straps on (think it's 18mm) and it's water resistant to 200m. Perfect for free diving without scuba gear: the watch is water resistant up to 20 bar according to ISO 22810.

They mention that it's one of the best retro looking Casio watches out there, with unique styling and a cool look. So please, if you guys have photos of your DW-290 with a different colored strap, I'd love to have a look. The strap isn't too bad at all, in fact it's much easier to swap out for a different one than the G-Shocks' straps, all of which need adaptor kits to allow fitting of aftermarket items. For fans of precision: the countdown timers help you to remember specific or recurring events by giving off an audible signal at a preset time. The clear and crisp digital display ensures that I can check the time, date, and stopwatch functions at a glance, even in challenging lighting conditions.I really cannot find anything to dislike, even the fact that this was apparently the watch chosen for use by the main character in some film or other doesn't phase me in the least. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Either way, I did fit a cheap (thin) NATO to the watch which, even being a 20mm one, was flexible enough to squeeze in without trouble. The refund method will be the same as the payment method (credit/debit card, bank transfer or Paypal). If you are considering the DW290 as an "every day or beater" watch, I would recommend them as you can find them for cheap.

Others say that the alarm is not loud and can easily go unheard if the watch is covered by something. All products undergo rigorous quality controls across all attributes of a product (Box, color, material, stitching, tag, sizing, manufacturing quality) before they are shipped to you. Also, Casio DW290 wears well on a larger wrist (I have an 8 inch wrist) and doesn't get hung up on the wrist bone or require any band modifications for the wearer with a larger wrist. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.We welcome all manufacturers including Casio G-Shock, OMEGA, Rolex, Breitling, Rolex and Tudor, Seiko, Grand Seiko and others. I have to admit, I tend to wear it's successor, the DW-291H more often but I'm glad I still have it!
