You will agree with me that the Casio brand has some pretty awesome products when it comes to analog dive watches. In fact, you probably own a piece or are planning to purchase one.
And after researching and comparing the many readily available products, one piece did catch my attention. In this Casio MRW200H-1BV review, I’ll show you why it would make a good addition to your accessories.
Great Time Precision
One of the manufacturer’s strong selling points about the watch is its accuracy. And after comparing it to other items in its class, it does seem that the company isn’t bluffing about it.
And with ±20 seconds per month, you will be on time and won’t need to regularly adjust the piece. The hands move seamlessly and work with the fairly large 44.6mm face/dial to give you easy views.
The precision possibly comes from the quality craftsmanship and superior Japanese Quartz movement.
Water resistance is a key factor when selecting the right dive watch. And Casio seems to have nailed this in this watch. It will still function well to depths up to 330 feet or 100 meters.
The tough resin case can handle the increased pressure whereas the waterproof sealing ensures no water gets through. What’s more, the face doesn’t “mist” while the large face and practical “hands” provide accurate reading even in such depths.
You, therefore, will worry less when wearing the watch as you swim, dive, snorkel, fish, scuba dive, or participate in water sports.
Case and Buckle
In comparison to most dive watches in its class, this Casio watch fairs relatively well in regards to clasping to the hand.
The buckle closure locks tightly on the arm and has a smooth texture that feels nice on the bare skin. What’s more, it’s lightweight and also flexible. With a thickness of 12 millimeters, the resin case feels practical and also comfortable.
This aspect is also seen in the 18millimeter wide band. The case, band, and buckle all come in a simple black color that contributes to its classic look.
Timeless Classic Dial Design
This watch blends several aspects that bring out a classic appeal.
It has a round dial that is symbolic with the olden times, a non-rotating textured bezel, and Arabic numeral indices. This effect is further enhanced by the day-and-date window and luminosity. The 3 analog hands (second, minute, and hour) move swiftly and illuminate in the dark.
And to remind you that you are wearing a Casio, the timepiece features a well-placed and visible Casio Quartz Logo accent.
This watch scores highly in regards to accuracy, flexibility, reliability, and versatility. And with a water resistance of up to 100 meters/ 330 feet, it does stand out as among the most suitable for different situations.
People who like a modernistic design may find it less appealing and so will individuals who love tougher materials such as steel. All-in-all, taking all things into account, the Casio MRW200H-1BV is certainly worth the time, effort and buying.
