Casio analog digital Sports Runner Lap Memory WS-300-1BV Mens watch

Casio Analog Digital Sports Runner Lap Memory WS-300-1BV Mens WatchThere are many who avoid watches for they can’t afford costly watches; neither willing to go the inexpensive side thinking of the quality. For them, the Casio WS300 watches are a good choice. They never need a careful handling and are built for the long, rough hauls. Everything you get with it comes neatly packed, tucked and trimmed to the point of excellence; this is the kind of watch that survives fires and falls with maybe a small scar on the face to tell the story.

The Casio Protrek Watches, for example! Those into the sports arena for 10 years or more must have spotted it right away; it brings together all elements essential to survive abusive usage, dirt and sand. An ideal mix of slim, compact dimensions and a-grade components keep things out of harm’s way. Unflinching accuracy, minimal adjustments, high legibility and automatic EL backlight illumination makes it an all-time watch and we didn’t speak about the 330 feet water resistance yet! The 10-lap memory stopwatch can be used to serve a lot of purposes (figure them out, be creative), the second time display- you can set the ana/digi times independently.

From the commercial aspect, this is a non-US version. The black WS-300-1BV is a hard to find item. It’s kind of good news that the trusty, unstoppable WS300 has returned; the bad news is, not for long.

To answer again why the Casio Edifice Solar men’s watch makes a wise choice, the first thing one should note is it’s a watch that asks nothing of the owner. It’s always there, quietly doing whatever job it has been assigned, sits super comfortable and accurate, to the mark!

For the dual-time, the crown controls the hands while the LCD-bound operations (alarm; digital DST switch; 10-hour stopwatch, 10-lap memory, the second time, hourly time signal) are button dependent. The backlit illuminator is automatic.

About using it for sports, the watch’s lap memory is a great help to anyone into any form of racing. The old race looks thus never got updated and that probably called for its discontinuation. The last few pieces are lying around and are a great way to tell Casio is not only about large digital displays and dials! It retains the full ana/digi EL from the older days of electronic watch-making and a feature that was quite sensational back then – the Casio Edifice Marine!

Suits a wide range of ages and backgrounds; from the high-school student to the pro-cyclist trying to better his timing or the outdoor hobbyists and off-road drivers competing through mud and sand. But then again, no problem even if you are working in the bar or in the lab!

Sicura Automatic Divers 300M Crystal SM606GB Mens Watch

Sicura Automatic Divers 300M Crystal SM606GB Mens WatchThere’s no need to go blah-blah-blah explaining how great the Sicura automatic divers 300M crystal SM606GB mens watch is; there’s an old adage that says a good wine does not need any bush. Here, bush means praises on highest quality or sophistication. Those who are familiar with the name need no introduction to this other side of Breitling; those who are new to the arena, please read on.

A bit on the background, first. Sicura comes under the rosters of the Chamber of Commerce. The company holds three different names, used at will over the years. Montres Sicura S.A. Grenchenl; Sicura Uhren A.G. Grenchen are for them with super-sharp intellects; the simple one – Sicura Watch Company Ltd. Grenchen – is for the rest of us. They all point to the same organisation, connected to Breitling.

Sicura saved Breitling from its death when cheap quartz revolution killed the big Swiss brands. From 1979 till the late ‘80s, it backed Breitling, rebuilt its potential and then stepped down to let it work individually again. Breitling’s greater potential and appeal made Ernest Schneider (Sicura founder; a pilot and micro-electronics specialist by profession) run just the brand Breitling; Sicura, being from an earlier era of Schneider’s career, embodies his knowledge and expertise as a young professional.

This is also why Sicura focuses mostly on technical watches, even their vintage ones. And vintage or not, the upper-range Sicura Dive Watch shall inevitably bear a coat-of-arms on its back cover. It’s high-quality decoration that comes inexpensive.

So it goes without saying Sicura Watches shall not overlook the importance of marine watches. It’s an arena that makes up for a vast chunk of the watch market, so Sicura couldn’t have underplayed. Sicura built this automatic divers’ 300M Crystal SM606GB Mens Watch for divers to rely upon as far as safe immersions are concerned. It is able to stand up to pressures of moderately deep diving, both in calm and rough, sweet and salty waters; shockproof and with a face visible in almost all shades of murky, dark-y waters.

The screw-down crown is one of the highlights of this sophisticated Sicura diver watch for men. Its importance can’t be stressed enough while you are under surface level in the waters while an all steel construction ensures it’s going to go a long way. It’s built not to break with salt water, so chances for the strap links or the safety deployment clasp to go weak is reduced to nil.

Apart from the utility side, it’s a great accessory to go with your everyday life; better if you are into clubbing and pool-side jam-ups. The Sicura Chronograph divers 300M crystal SM606GB mens watch is a rarity that you can easily expose to corrosive environments and still smile about it.

Citizen Eco-Drive Perpetual Calendar Sapphire Men’s Watch


Citizen Eco-Drive Perpetual Calendar Sapphire BL8005-77E Men’s WatchAlmost all of us have come across this point: Want a watch that’s more than just a pretty face or fashionably stylish but also not overly technical to raise negative impressions in another’s mind. It should make a vital component of power dressing yet a stunning add-on for every sort of gatherings except for the boisterous ones. No, not quite; if you wear a gold chain, you may wear it even at the beach volleyball sessions and recreational water sports as long as you don’t cross 300 feet. Despite the lowering of the actual test readings by the manufacturer, it doesn’t hurt to dive 30 feet less.

This JDM, two-tone Citizen Aqualand Promaster Sapphire Men’s watch fits all the above criteria. The BL8004-53E is its American cousin with a mineral crystal instead of sapphire. This classically beautiful Citizen Aqualand Titanium is not in for the high-dollar competition, but its heaviness shall stun you!No romantic messages preceeds this piece of raw but seasoned manliness; this watch is as lusty as it can get. Kind of a wear it, forget it watch that needs some cuddling for the first time. Set it and it will run as long as it lasts; tikering with the settings is optional.

There’s certainly a large chunk who wants to get on the finer details; they shall be delighted to know it will automatically adjust for odd/even months and Leap Years till its 2100!

It’s wide, round stainless steel with a thin, golden outline around the bezel. The polished gold appears again in the stainless steel bracelet; this time with brushed silver interlinks. It’s tough saying whether it’s the gold that gives prominence to the dark background or the background imparting it to the gold parts; anyway, the total presentation is excellent!

The subdials indicate the day, 24-hour readings and mode. With the last one, you select the function you want the watch to perform. You’ll set local time, calendar and alarm (low in db; high on frequency – in plain English, it can wake anyone up from deep sleep).

The hands are luminous and gold-toned; markers are just gold-tone. On top of everything, is an anti-reflective, scratch-resistant mineral crystal.

A note for mechanical men who avoid quartz just because it needs battery replacements. This opens the factory seal, making the watch – how much ever harsh that may sound – lose a small percentage of its authenticity. With Citizen Skyhawk, you shed that inhibition. Unless something seriously goes wrong (never heard of except for a handful), Eco-Drive shall tick for a lifetime. It is also because of this reason Citizen could bring in the power-hungry features together; batteries wouldn’t even last for a year! Just take care to give it enough exposure to neon lights – a couple of hours everyday for three weeks – or, in bright sunlight (so that the heat doesn’t fall on it head-on) for 4 hours. It stores three months worth of charge, full brimmed up. The cut-out doesn’t let any overflow happen.
