I bought this watch to wear at the gym but now wear it a lot outside the gym as well. I have a Bell Ross, a Seiko and a Rolex, and my Casio gets just as much attention. It really is an 80's retro classic. People love this watch. The design is simple and attractive, very no-nonsense and purposeful. A lot of my friends tell me they wanted this watch when they were children.

I don't wear this watch with a suit but it works well with just about everything else.

The watch is so easy to use, which is a great change from expensive mechanical watches that come with a 20 page instruction manual and still need to have the time reset every month. It took 5 minutes to set this watch up and learn the functions, and it keeps time beautifully.

I'd recommend this watch to anyone who wants a no nonsense, reliable, easy to use, cool timepiece.

This is the electro-luminescent backlight version of the classic casio watch, meaning that you can see the time in the dark. As this is my 3rd or 4th purchase of this watch I can confidently predict that it will be light, comfortable, water-resistant, and last about 4 years before the plastic strap will fail or the battery will run out. At which point Ill happily buy another.

I brought this product as a quick an simple way to record my long distance running times through the use of the stop watch function. It has been with me through several physical activities with numerous enviromental conditions, for example jet skiing, diving 35M depth and long distance runs Hot & Cold climates,and so far, so great!

A great watch. So simple to set, use and read, difficult to go wrong with the few modes it has (Alarm, Timer, Time/Date set).



The Black rubber/plastic band is comfortable and the watch sits nicely on the wrist. I'm loving the retro look and feel of it as well.



The bright blue backlight also makes this a great timekeeper whether it's day or night. A friend of mine has the same watch without the Electro-luminescent backlight and it makes a great difference. Seems sturdy and is definitely waterproof.



If you want a watch which is easy on the wallet and easy to use then I would definitely recommend the Casio Retro Chronograph.

My strap broke on my previous Casio F91 watch so I decided to upgrade to the illuminator. The light is much better than the 91 and so can be used without too much squinting. Other than that, its pretty much the same, a slightly different strap design, water resistant to 50m and green writing but as far as I can tell, identical functionality. Looks as sturdy as expected and I like it a lot. I really like the design of Casio watches, its a timeless classic, and would recommend to anyone after a relatively cheap, functional and reliable timepiece.

This watch offers a very inexpensive, practical means of telling the time. Exceedingly reliable the batteries last for years. It is waterproof my previous one has survived in the washing machine twice and is still going strong. It has an alarm and a chronomiter. The only drawback is trap eventually breaks, hence my only reason for purchasing another.

Not being a person who is drawn by bling or modern day fanciness I was immediately caught by this retro Casio digital watch. Having owned one when I was a lot younger it immediately brought back lots of memories. As the price was very reasonable, I ordered it straight away. Delivery was quick and I soon received my watch. It was just like when I was a teenager, the look, the features, the illumination and unfortunately the small size of the watch strap making the item too small to wear. Very disappointed. If I had seen the size of the strap I wouldnt have bought it. Still a nice watch, even though I cant wear it.

The watch was bought as a gift to replace the same model that broke. I was very pleased that I could still find this model, it has been a long lasting watch and hopefully this one will last just as long. Its pretty basic as far as digital watches go but thats the beauty of it...Low key and unassuming retro. Great!

This is my fifth Casio watch of this model. After about three years the strap becomes brittle and snaps. The watchs have never failed or needed a new battery. They are such good value it is little more to buy a new watch than it is to buy an new strap. Straps other than Casio do not last. The light weight and the illuminator light is why I prefer this watch.

My new Casio W-86-1VQES replaces a similar casio I bought from the watchshop a long time ago. No complaints about that one - the plastic strap gave up before the watch and I had it going for years so was not disappointed. I had been without a watch for a while so thought I would treat myself. This one total cost 15.50 so doesnt have to do much to be value for money and it certainly is that. Water resistant to 50m, a light , a stopwatch and an alarm, what else do you want from a watch. Will probably go through airport security as its mostly plastic, unlikley to get mugged for it and yet its comfy, looks ok, took 30 seconds to set up and understand the functions and keeps accurate time. As you can probably tell I think its pretty good.

Excellent watch. Wanted a replacement for a chunky G-Shock that I found overly complicated to use due to its many features.

This was exactly what I was looking for. Simple, stylish, lightweight and functional. Already had positive comments from people who like the retro look of the watch. Watch is extremely easy to use and set up. The LED light is really bright hence why I chose this model over the W-59-1 and the stop watch is another useful feature that I use when jogging.

Really pleased with the watch, the price and the overall service received.

This watch is great when having a sporty lifestyle as I can wear it when in the gym and is great for time keeping due to the stopwatch.

My wife & I both wear this watch. We have been wearing the previous models from which this model has evolved since about 1985. We bought one for our daughter when she was 9 & within a week of wearing it at school about 4 of her classmates were wearing the same model!

Its: multi-funcional light user freindly & inexpensive. This W-86-1VQES model has electro luminescence which gives an extra bright back light. The straps are the only weak link but they are replacable. The greatest dissapointment is that Casio are no longer producing this particular model & the latest models in this range do not have the bright back light.

Functional & reliable in a way that may create nostalgia for the 80s. But above everthing, excellent value. Settings can scramble by the buttons getting knocked (typically fliting between 12 & 24hr display). A more durable strap would make it perfect - Ive got a collection of em, all but the one Im wearing with broken straps!

Simple, retro and lightweight. Perfect for summer when you want to wear something that doesn't have a leather strap or a watch that is big and heavy. Being 50M water resistant means it's great for jumping in and out of the swimming pool. I would recommend this to anyone on any budget, although it's only 15, the style is iconic and will be fashionable for many years to come.

First class service and no complaints.

the watch I ordered is very basic and simple but that is all I require it for to cater for my gym activity and it does just that !

WOW! Excellent delivery. Ordered before

1pm mon.8/1/10. Received 9.50am 9/1/10.

In these times of can`t be bothered service,its refreshing to deal with a firm that cares about its customers.Well done Watchshop and Royal Mail.This is my third Casio Retro watch. I wear it mostly for work so it is subject to knocks,vibration,scratches and gets wet but never fails. It`s only weakness is the strap which breaks at the buckle after 3 or 4 years wear but at this price it`s not worth getting a new strap.The original watch is still working!

Maybe it's the Captain Kirk in me that draws me to the retro 'feel' of the Casio Chronograph.

What I like about this watch are the clean lines, easy to read display, simple functionality and its excellent value for money.

It's a no nonsense - does what it says on tin type of watch.

The illuminated facia makes it so much easier to read when cruising at warp factor 5!

Great watch, great price - beam me up Scotty :-)

I was pleased to find this product .,however today when I gave it as a present was disappointed and upset to find the strap does not go around the receivers wrist.

Excellent functionality and build quality. Very sturdy for continual manual labour and elegantly simplistic. Backlight however has dark patches and looks very cheap.
