Very honest review of the Casio stainless steel woman's watch.
By Amazon Customer
First of all let me tell you I only give reviews on items I really like. And I do like this watch , even the color does vary from the item shown. It is more of a brassy ,but not gaudy looking gold. However I was looking more for a watch that is the same color as the item shown. This is the reason I chose to give it only 4 stars. The photo shows a light gold with a darker gold face. In actuality the gold on the face is a little lighter color than the watch frame and band. I just received this watch today. But these are the points I would like to review.
1. This watch is not at all petite to me. It is even much larger than some elegant digital watches. In fact I would not wish the face to be any larger at all. The face of the watch is 7/8" wide x 13/16" long
2. This band is a very nice size, not small at all. In fact I have a fairly large wrist and I have to pull it up above my wrist, or wear it a little loose on the wrist. The watch band from the the top, and including the watch face,to the end of the clasp is 8 3/4 inches long. The watch band is 6/16" at the narrowest down at the clasp, and 9/16" where it connects to the watch (watch face).
3. It is not exactly what I would consider elegant. It is a watch that would fit in nicely with an office work environment. But I will not be wearing it with a fancy gown.
4. The time, date, alarm, and stop watch are all very easy to set. Although the instructions were a little difficult to underststand. Once I got the a b and c down I played around and had everything set within 7 minutes.
I bought this particular watch because I am allergic to many metals. I have never been allergic to stainless steel. I will update later if I do find I am having an allergic reaction to it.
All in all this is a very nice watch. It is comfortable to wear. It is very easy to hook and lock the clasp with one hand. And the clasp locks tight It keeps time very well. And right now I am very glad I purchased it. It does not look like it would come undone very easily. There are actually a wide hood and another piece of metal that have to be in the right place in order to lock the band securely. I literally have to pry it open with my fingernail, but not hard enough to break a nail. I do wish it were a lighter gold color.

Best women's small sports/utility watch on the market
This is the best women's small sports/utility watch on the market. I have had them for 21 years when it was made by Timex (now made by Casio). I have had 4 & this time I bought 3 at once because I feared it might be discontinued. I am totally dependant on this watch. It keeps excellent time. I use the timer all the time & occasionally the stop watch & alarm. The battery lasts about 2-1/2 to 3 years. The watch lasts 4-8 years then it dies. My only criticism is the watch does not glow in the dark. I would like to have the date on it too. These are the only reasons I give it a 4 star rating. As it is it is an excellent watch though. You will not wear your old expensive watch again. The gold does wear off after a few years warn daily, whereas, the silver ones do not show wear. The watches that have the plastic watch bands wear out fast & are ugly. Stick to the metal bands. This is an excellent watch.

I actually love this watch. So much so that after the first time I ordered it and then returned it because the clasp broke, I ordered it again hoping not to have the same issue. The problem I am having is that the adjustable part of the clasp bends out of shape or breaks when I try to adjust the watch. I am sooooo frustrated! I follow the directions perfectly, and yet the metal flap piece is so thin it warps out of shape when I try and pop it up to move the device. I have done jewelry work on my own, and I am pretty good with these sorts of things, so why I am having such an issue I just can not understand. I have contacted the seller and will see what they say, but at this point I am just completely irritated. The entire point of having a watch band made like this is so that you can adjust it yourself. The watch itself looks great if it weren't for this ridiculously flimsy clasp/adjuster.
