New Casio DW291!

I don't know how this model flew under my radar for so long! I have been looking at the DW290 "Ethan Hunt" for a few years now, but I just never could get beyond its appearance; I just don't like the way it looks. I was unaware that Casio had taken some of the features from the DW290 and put them into a watch with a look I do like; the DW291. It looks similar to the Casio AE1200 World Time, and even has the small analog dial! As soon as I found it, I ordered it, and just got it today. Chuffed to bits with this one, as TGV would say.

I do like it, does it do dual time zones?

Yes, it does. It has the standard Casio digital package; dual time zone, stopwatch, countdown timer, multiple alarms, etc. The only feature it doesn't have that the DW290 has is the Electroluminescent backlight, it is like the World Time backlight instead. Still great for $30.

I like the bulky and rugged look of this. I always find this kinda shape appealing. Like something from the Industrial Age. This can be pass as a Gshock IMO. You can't get anything else with 200m WR, 10yr battery life and all the functions mentioned at this affordable pricing.

I like this colour variation.

Is this the distinction between Casio and G Shock evaporating?
BTW I didn’t recognize you with the cloth o….I mean in your new clothes.

It seems that a lot of the distinctions between Casio brands are vanishing. How similar are some of the steel G Shocks to Edifice models?
