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.
