While we can sometimes get all wrapped up in the tiny details of what makes a watch interesting, there is certainly something to be said about the good ol’ classic digital watch. I think Casio would agree, and they’ve released an updated “classic” design, this time around in rose gold.
What watch is it? That would be the Casio B640WMR-5AVT. Rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it? I think I’ll call it the Casio Classic Rosie. To be perfectly clear, this is not made from rose gold, but instead has that hue through-and-through, from the case and the milanese bracelet. Even the LCD display looks like it’s got a colored film applied there to pink it up a bit.
In terms of functionality, it’s your classic Casio – you’ve got day, date, and time, alarm, backlighting, and a 1/100 second stopwatch that can time for up to 100 hours (4 days – can your hand-wound chrono do that?). Wrapped in a 50m WR rated package, it’s a watch that should handle life, and in this rosy tone, I think it’s well-set for warmer weather. Who’s it for? Well, anyone who wants a solid watch that sticks to the basics, and comes in this hue.
In other words, this is probably a watch I’d consider for my daughter who’s favorite color is pink. This $69.95 watch, with it’s milanese mesh bracelet, is a tidy way to get a younger watch wearer into something that looks a bit more mature (the bracelet, you see) or for the more experienced owner to have something simple, clean, and bright. casio.com

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
