The Marine Line from Casio is very underrated. Everybody looks for the G-Shocks but few know that there are other options on the market like this one which offer a good compromise between price and quality. On top of that, you can add some unicity to your style since this is not a very popular watch.

This is not a watch that concentrates on the number of features, rather on elegance and design quality. It comes with a rubber strap that is easily replaceable, although I consider it makes for a great look along with the stainless steel case.

Below you can see the version with a stainless steel bracelet and white colored indicators.

When speaking about feel on the hand, the rubber strap is very comfortable and has a standard locking system with one locking pin and multiple tightening levels. Since this is a watch that resists to a 200-meter water pressure, the band retains its good feel even when in contact with water. However, if you want to make it a more formal-looking watch I would recommend a stainless steel strap.

The unidirectional bezel assures that you keep track of time without any doubts that it may deviate. This is especially useful for divers looking for a precise countdown. The date window on the right side of the dial is standard. The index hands and hour markers have a special type of paint that glows in the dark making it possible to read the hour even in dark situations. Two of the subdials are for the stopwatch and the top subdial is for 24-hour incrementations. However, the watch doesn’t feature any kind of backlight for the subdials which means you won’t be able to use the stopwatch feature during nighttime.

Finally, it is mostly a matter of taste when deciding whether this is a watch for you or not. Does it have enough features for everyday use? Mostly yes. Did Casio use only quality materials in its manufacturing? Undoubtedly. Do you like how it looks? This is for you to decide.

Features List:

  • 200 meters / 660 ft. water resistance
  • Unidirectional rotary bezel
  • Chronograph
  • Stainless steel case with rubber strap
