Any Casio watch.
Given:
Tropical island vacation.
Swimming, snorkeling, connected flights, timezones, driving around hiking and enjoying warm nights under stars and ocean rocking waves...
Beach, some paddling and a lot of good memories.
What watch you will take?
Giving all you have.
Today i will/may take my GLX5600 but i took W212H to Maui some time ago.
May take it again.
Small, easy to change time, light and frankly totally in tune with relaxed attitude.

Re: Casio watch to take to topical island vacation.

Lucky you!! :-!

Well if it were me.... First, I would never take only one watch. That’s what watch travel cases are for. :-d I would take a minimum of 3.

Mine would be...most likely....a D1000 Frog for beach/ocean activities. A GMW-B5000 square for when I wanted to dress it up a little. (Out to dinner, whatever) And a GW-5000 for all other times. ;-)

If I had to narrow it to two — gimme the Frog and the GW5K. Those two would cover pretty much every situation nicely.

Thanks for letting me participate in this fantasy vacation. (For me) Cause for now, I can only dream of a tropical beach vacation!











I might even have to throw a non-G into the mix. One of my dive watches would be the ticket for a tropical beach vaca!!

Just wondering. :think:
Is a topical island vacation the same as a tropical island vacation? ;-) :-d

Gulfman GW-9110-1

Lightweight, moon phase/tide graph, all metal parts are titanium (won't corrode), loud alarm for a G.

I found ability to be washed completely and easy very useful. Thus i think may be not G this time. It still has ocean salt on strap (3 years later).
Vacation is 7 days so no time to rust.

One of the things i hate about modern tech is how it knows better and thinks for us.
Still it far cry from sexual harassment level typos of my former boss.
Fixed!

I thought I was the only one that Apple auto correct seemed to have it in for - changing random words to even more random corrections that it seems to think I want to use.

OP. Any of the square G's is ideal for a hol.

Most probably the GW-9400 Rangeman. No need to worry about anything, sand or salt water. It isn't large, so paddle away. Compass and barometer for hiking and predicting rains. Wish I could go on a real restful vacation already...

Kauai 2 years ago as we just arrived.

I wore the watch in the ocean every day for our one week stay. Over night I let it soak in a glass of water. No problems, the band, bezel and all other parts remained just the same. Occasionally I did use some sun screen (Rubber Ducky - marine life friendly), although not around the watch, but I was not overly cautious either.

Took my Gw-5000 to Kauai 2 years ago myself. Can't wait to go back!

You do need alarms and date, after certain time you need to be reminded of sad truth.
Weather prediction... it was raining on the left and sunny on the right.
