What's your favorite Sub-$50 Casio?

Fairly simple question; What's your favorite budget Casio? I wrote an article on this topic back in January, and listed my top 5 favorite choices. The DW-291H and AE-1200 came in right behind my top, the OG DW-5600.

How about you? What's your favorite budget Casio?

Those were the three I had in mind!

Well, I own one sub-100 Casio, F-105W. It's great for what it is, and it's considerably less than a hundred. So my vote would go to the OG-5600, sorry, DW-5600. While I don't have that one, I have a GW-5610U and my dear has a BGD-565, which is basically a smaller de-rated DW-5600E.

It's built to take basically anything.

However, the AE-1200 is tempting. As well as the A-500... each on their own spot on the tool-jewel axis.

I'll go with the G-shock, because I know it.

A168: easy to dress down and up.

F-91 is the icon, but it's World Timer for me.

F-91 is the icon, but it's World Timer for me.

Agreed on that! The F-91 is the greatest Casio of all time, but that does not mean that it is the best right now.

It's on my top 5 list too! I think it's the cheapest dressy/casual watch that is worth buying. It's a solid watch.

Solid choices! The GW-5610u is my current go-to Casio, and is my favorite one now. Well worth the money, but well above $50 too.

Royale, DW-290, and the SGW-500 ($70)
