Class for cheap, Casio MTP-V005D-2B5


Casio charges under $35 for what others charge over $200 for.

It is rare to comes across a steel 3-hand no-date watch that looks this good for under 35 bucks, but Casio did it.

When I say other watch brands charge over $200 for something like this, I am not kidding. You may be thinking, "Others charge $200 plus for a quartz steel analog no-date? Seriously?" Yes, seriously, and routinely.

These are the things that make this particular Casio an absolute knockout watch:

Dial color. Blue burst. Absolutely gorgeous.

The dial does not have WATER RESIST printed on it. All you see is a logo at top and a small JAPAN MOV'T at bottom, and that's lovely. With that text not there, it makes the watch look much more classy. Any time you see QUARTZ or WATER RESIST on a dial, that makes it look toy-like cheap instantly. Better to just have nothing there to keep it classy.

It's thin. Just 8.1mm.

It's light. With all links, it's 90 grams in weight. With links removed to adjust for wrist size, the weight starts dropping real quick. If you switch out to a leather strap, the watch weighs next to nothing.

The case is strap friendly.

It was a no-brainer to get this watch. I've been waiting for Casio to release something without that dopey WATER RESIST at the bottom in a simple 3-hand no-date variant. They finally did, and I'm happy to own it.

On a final note, Casio was even smart enough to make a numbers no-date version, so if you have to see numbers for hours, you're covered. Same great blue dial.
