Casio Edifice Review (EQS500DB-1A1)

  Hi guys. Today I’m writing about Casio Edifice Review, specifically the model no. EQS500DB-1A1 which retails on Amazon at less than $200. What’s great about it is it’s really good looking and fully packed with functions that other watches in this price range don’t even try to include. I’ve written about another Casio watch, the Wave Ceptor WVAM640D-1A previously and it seems the brand really likes to make good value for money watches. And while this is more expensive than the Wave Ceptor, the price hike is justifiable with full stainless steel case (the Wave Ceptor case is a hybrid of plastic resin – stainless steel)Read More →

Citizen BM8475-26E Review

  Hi All! In this post today, I’m going to write about Citizen BM8475-26E review, a black-orange themed watch that’s also solar powered. The watch has a black matte dial with orange hands and markers that’s just pop up from it. It’s truly is stunning to look at and in my opinion, a great casual/everyday watch.     The solar powered feature also makes it a convenient tool as its owner does not need to change the battery every 1-2 years or so. It’s the perfect combination of automatic and quartz watches. Last but not least, the good 100 m water resistance means the watch is wellRead More →

Casio Wave Ceptor Review (WVAM640D-1A)

  Hi guys. Today I’m writing about the Casio Wave Ceptor review, a very affordable solar AND radio-controlled atomic watch – all for less than $160! Yep you read that right. This solar watch that’s also can keep resetting itself to atomic time is much cheaper than other “normal” watches out there. I was very surprised at first but then knowing how Casio usually dishes out great watches at low prices, this could definitely be the real thing. The Casio Wave Ceptor watch is a hybrid of analog and digital watch (kinda like the Tissot T-Touch series).     The analog is used to showRead More →

Citizen Eco-Drive BM8180-03E Review

  Hi guys. Today I’m writing about the Citizen Eco-Drive BM8180-03E review, one of the most affordable Eco-Drive models from the Japanese brand. Citizen’s Eco-Drive is one of the most robust and well-respected solar watch movement right now. But the cost of such cool technology is more expensive than a normal quartz watch. Fortunately, they know there is a good market in low priced watches and this is where the Citizen BM8180-03E watch comes in the picture. The watch is priced at the more affordable sub-$100 price (if you get it from online stores, especially on , as compared to the normal more than $200 priceRead More →

Seiko SNE331 Review

  Hi guys! In this post, I’m going to write about the Seiko SNE331 review, a no-frills military watch by the Japanese brand. It has a very simplistic and functional design – those big markers and hands on top of a pitch black dial and case. There is no mistaken that this is a military watch that’s made for casual and outdoor use. But that’s not its only selling point. The SNE331 is powered by solar/light, so its owner does not need to change its battery every few years like normal quartz watches. This effectively make it the best no-frills watch ever for day-to-day use! AndRead More →

And for that price, we’re getting a tried-and-tested Eco-Drive light powered watch (no need to change battery for years!), GMT function, rotary slide rule, a great 200 m water resistance. And have I mentioned that the Nighthawk looks super cool too? The black dial with white markings and red accent just looks astonishing and could be the reason why it’s called Nighthawk (blackRead More →

Seiko SUN019 Review

  Hi guys. In this article, I’m covering on the Seiko SUN019 review, a kinetic watch from Seiko. From the first look, we can already see how unique and cool looking the Seiko SUN019 is – and it IS unique.    Shroud Case, Kinetic, GMT I think all these three words (shrouded case, kinetic movement, GMT watch) perfectly summarizes how different the is compared to others out there. The case has the distinctive shrouded layer for extra shock protection. Seiko fans should know that these shrouded case design is made famous by the Seiko Tuna, and its lil’ brother the Baby Tuna watches. Powering theRead More →
