You have to hand it to Casio, they make some fine watches. Not just expensive ones either. There are plenty of real bargains to be had that are easy on the wallet, but still packed with features. One such gem is the Casio AQW-100. This is a really interesting sports watch incorporating both digital and analogue timekeeping.
I was drawn to this watch because it has tide and moon data, not for any other reason (well, in all honesty the price played a part). I’d call this an impulse purchase in as much as I hadn’t really delved into the spec beforehand so there were some surprises in store once I opened the box!
I had been wanting to add a G-Shock to my watch collection for some time and I only had eyes for one model – the Gulfman.
Unlike other watch purchases, this for me anyway, was a simple choice. I didn’t have an exhaustive criterion to adhere to – barring a few features I required – the obligatory tide graph and moon phase.
I just wanted a Gulfman!
Things are never that straightforward though. I originally planned on getting the Casio G-9100-1ER. This is best described as the entry level Gulfman, primarily because it lacks solar power and atomic timekeeping. This aside, its a perfect daily wearer without a budget busting price tag.
I was pretty much set on this model until I saw the GW-9110-1ER.
