The Top 5 Most Iconic & Best Value Casio Digital Watches Under $50 – Reviews & Brief History

Today I take a trip down memory lane and review 5 watches that offer the best value for money when it comes to iconic digital timepieces under $50.

Without a doubt, Casio has one of the most interesting and unique legacies when it comes to producing watches, and this legacy is perfectly highlighted by the watches featured in this video.

First we take a look the ultra retro cinematic legend that is DataBank CA-53W made famous by the Back To The Future movies. We then compare it to its successor and pinnacle of the DataBank range with the DBC-661. Next we move on to the most iconic and successful watch ever made by Casio – the small but mighty F-91W. We look at its fascinating history, variants like the A-158W and also the dark side of its horological narrative.

We conclude the video with a tried and tested favorite that has survived space flights and is favored by military all over the world. We are of course talking about the DW5600E-1V which is one the modern descendants of the original G-Shocks and maybe the best beater watch ever made under $50.

The battery life on my 5600 was well over two years, and that’s an understatement. Bought it in -08, changed battery for the first time in -17 I think. And it hadn’t even depleted yet. So perhaps 10 years.

The Hitman says:

Ive got a 6 watch collection and decided im going to stop buying when i hit 12 and never exceed 12 watches at any one time. Im going to buy a watch case that holds 12 watches. Ive recently got into seiko big time from this channel alone. Ive recently bought the alpinist based from your review, but now in love with the skx pepsi, flightmaster and sarb035. My question is- do people think that 4 seikos in a 12 watch collection is too many seikos?

Raul De fermin says:

Where I can buy the g.shock ? Can you give me a link please th

Time Art Piece says:

Dave-Dave says:

Went to Amazon to pick up the DBC 611. It went up from $42 to $51.. TGV Tax 😀

Kenny Trainor says:

What an intro TGV! I spent a little more and purchased the GW-M5610 and it is the perfect everyday watch, period. I fell in love with mine and now have the G-Shock sickness! Awesome video like always, keep it up!
