Time: What I've been wearing.

For all the horological uppity-ness that I can write about, this Casio has been on my wrist about 4-5 days of the week.

It's an incredible value, at less than $50 CAD and features the standard digital mix of chrono, alarm, countdown timer, world time, but adds a moonphase and tide graph to the 100m water resistant, Tough Solar, Illuminator package.

So why this? Just a sole digital beater right? Well, no. At least not the sole one, third attempt really. My first attempt was a Casio G-Shock, G-Lide version with similar functionality, but adding Multiband 6 atomic synchronization, and increasing WR depth to 200m. But Casio plays a weird limited edition colour game with G-Shock. And it was available in bright white or bright red with a negative LCD display.

But I never grew to like the white that I chose, and the negative display wasn't my first choice either.

So this ended up the functionality winner.

Ideal would be the G-Lide in this colour/display combo, but so far it doesn't exist.
