At $30 or less, this seems like a watch every Casio fan should own, no? A sort of minor classic in its own right?

Director Mueller was a Marine Corps Captain in the 1960's in Southeast Asia.
A true combat Officer. He can wear it any way he pleases !

Carry on !

As (hopefully) free men and women, wherever we may be, ALL of us, of course, can wear our watches any way we please!

As I noted earlier, perhaps this ugly little classic (even though not a "G") belongs in the watch wardrobes for more of us.
Once again, the FBI gets its man -- this time, me. For under $30, I decided to see what the fuss was about regarding the DW-290.

So here it is. Worn on the outside of the wrist, in my case. I think it is bit too thick and clunky to wear comfortably on the inside. But that would not be the first time that I disagreed with the FBI on a philosophical matter!:-d

It is not as ugly as I thought it would be. Overall, it gives very much the same impression as a Timex Ironman or even, from afar, a DW-5600E. (If there were just a bit more elevation of the bezel above the crystal, it would look and feel very much like a G-Shock.)

Just a basic, no nonsense, inexpensive tool of a watch with the functions most of us will ever need or use.
