I need a couple of White Elephant Game Xmas gifts; of course I do a watch every year. Normally I do inexpensive Russian watches; but due to the influence of this group, I've broadened my choices. I am...
It's a tank there isn't much you can do to damage it, really. Depending on the price, I can't see a reason to hesitate if you like the watch.

This is another that I have owed since new (1981). I originally had three of these as work watches, one from 1978, and another from 1980. Sadly the two older ones were destroyed but this one survives and is one of my most notorious pieces.
Thanks for all the fantabulous feedback, this is a really great group and excellent resource for collectors and enthusiasts at all levels. Well, I ordered 2 Casio Duros this afternoon for the 2 white elephant gifts.....lets see what happens!
People forget to read the instructions regarding water resistance. It needs to be checked more often than you think for any water resistance rating to be meaningful. I used to send my work watches in on a yearly check, sometimes less.
