Review: Casio Duro Marlin MDV106-1A “Ultra Affordable Dive Watch”,
The Casio Duro is my recommendation for a “bottom dollar” affordable analog-faced dive watch. Borrowing heavily from a number of diver-watch themes, it successfully integrates them into a watch which seems nicer than a watch. Not to say there aren’t shortcomings, just that the good outweighs the bad in this case. There are a number of alternatives from Seiko, Orient, and others if you’re interested in a mechanical movement, but that comes with a higher cost. Those on a shoestring budget looking for a hassle-free quartz watch with tasteful aesthetics need not look any further.
Thanks for watching, and for your likes, shares, and subscription!
