Casio A168WG-9 Men’s Vintage Gold Metal Band Illuminator Chronograph Alarm Watch Review

The Casio A168WG-9 Men’s Vintage Gold Metal Band Illuminator Chronograph Alarm Watch features a back light, a daily alarm, water resistance, a stop watch (1/100 second) and a battery life of approximately 7 years.

Before purchasing this Casio watch, I wasn’t really into watches. I always relied on my phone to check the time. But when I came across an article about powerful men wears watches, I googled the best inexpensive everyday watches.

Setting up the watch wasn’t hard to figure out. It was extremely easy to do even with the instruction manual that came with it.Because it’s made with stainless steel band, the watch effortlessly looks great with any outfit you wear for the day. I like how it matches all of my outfits. I could wear this to the gym, even. It just fits perfectly on me even with the adjustable band.

The watch is weightless on my arm. I like how this doesn’t feel anything when I put it on. I now start to heavily rely on my watch for alarms and timers instead of using my phone.

Every hour, it beeps to remind me that it’s a new hour. The blue light is just enough to give you enough brightness to see the actual time.

The size is not too big, nor too small. It’s a watch that isn’t too flashy but shows that you have class and style when wearing this.

I would also like to point out that this watch could work for women too. This shouldn’t just be a men’s watch.

The vintage feel of this watch makes me want to purchase other watches that has a vintage vibe to it since they never go out of style.

However, I have a noticed a few scratches here and there and the gold looks like that it might be chipping off. While it is not noticeable, I just want to give this as a side note. Maybe you shouldn’t wear this watch when you’re going to be in contact with water.

Pros:
– Every time I wear this, I always get compliments and it’s not just from guys I work with but also with women.
– The watch is extremely lightweight. You won’t even feel that you have a watch on your wrist
– The strap is adjustable which is always a big deal for me
– The buttons on the watch are easy to click and does its job
– It’s digital, so it’s very easy to tell the time at quick glance
– A versatile, classy watch that everybody should own
– Inexpensive for its style and quality

Would I repurchase this watch? The answer is maybe. Since I will be into collecting watches, I think I’d like to own other watches that’s not the same as this one. I suggest to invest in more classic timepieces instead of bulky ones because the design lasts a long time. If you’re not into big sport watches or dive watches, then the Casio A168WG-9 Men’s Vintage Gold Metal Band Illuminator Chronograph Alarm Watch is definitely for you.
