Simple Date

great example of good design and function. Clear to read, elegant looks and deceptively simple in form, it’s one of those models that’s just perfect for those little occasions

Casio elegance +

I have to think this is perhaps a slight departure for a Casio complication model, as they don’t have it shrouded in Shock protection, nor is it oversize. And it does prove to me at last that they certainly can squeeze the technology into a sensible standard sized dress style watch

The best gets better! (updated April 1st 2016)

There are competitors out there of course not least Seiko, but I’ve had a look at them and so far they don’t do it for me! They all tend to look a bit cluttered and complicated and I have the impression the technology seems to be shoehorned in to the case. Also the standard accuracy of the movement is much superior to the rest (so far).

And the time is – approximately . . .

So an intriguing watch from Botta and yet another variation on the Single Handed display system and I have the feeling that, as it is, for want of a better word I’ll call it an “approximate” watch, I don’t envisage I’d suffer eye strain this time as a result of reading it.
