I never used to be someone to where watches very often, but over the past few years I've started to build up my collection. This Casio is my latest addition which has given me another option to go for in the morning when trying to choose which watch to wear. I used to have the black rubber version of this when they were popular but after years of use and being left on my shelf the strap turned brittle and that was the end of that. This watch is such a classic that can be worn with numerous outfits due to its simple and stylish looks.


Functions of the watch include alarms, a stopwatch, an hourly time signal and electronic backlight to give you all the essential features that you'd want in a wrist piece. The buttons on the sides of the face made for a quick and easy selection of your mode and to activate the blue display light. Its light weight combined with its sleek design means it's super comfy to wear all day without discomfort. I sometimes forget I'm actually wearing it. The watch is around £25 depending where you get it from which I think is a great price for something that looks as classy as this. 


I style this watch with both casual and more formal looks. I can stick it on with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt, but it can look equally as good at work with a shirt and tie. There are so many chronograph style watches out there that a minimalist option like this is a refreshing change. Casio is a well established brand in the watch market, so you know you are buying a quality product. They also offer different coloured versions of this watch to suit your taste. The detail of the strap is really impressive, with a simple metal clasp to fasten it together helping to add to the classic look.
