Casio Edifice review

I've had this watch for a little over a month now.   It was a bit of an impulse purchase mainly due to the brushed dial and overall look of the watch.

Image

This model is 42.5mm wide and 8.5mm thick though given the case design it wears similar to a 40mm.  The integrated solid link bracelet tapers from 24mm at the case to 18mm at the clasp.  The bracelet is fairly comfortable and given the price of the watch I think it's acceptable, the clasp is a weak point but since it's 18mm I'll likely try to upgrade it at some point.

I'm not sure if the sapphire crystal has and applied AR but glare doesn't seem to bad.

The dial is my favorite part of the watch, I'm a sucker for brushed dials and this one doesn't disappoint.  The applied indicies are similar to my gm2100 and do not have any lume.

Image

That brings me to my main dislike.  The only lume present is on the minute and hour hands and it is not very long lasting.

Overall this is a great option in its price range ($78-110 from a quick search).  I'm treating mine as a fun grab and go watch that I don't mind getting beat up.

I have never really been taken by the Edifice line. This put my feelings into writing pretty well. They seem fine, maybe good, but not great.
