Right! Today I’m taking a look at 5 of the most popular Dual analogue digital display watches. Personally….I’m not a fan of digital watches, however when combined with an analogue display they can work quite nicely. Some pretty big brands made it in this list as expected. We’ve got Casio, Accurist and Citizen so all well known. I’ve included reviews from actual buyers along with each watch. Hope you find this useful. Enjoy.
‘What can I say about this watch?!!
In one sentence, this is a beautiful masterpiece, a true gem.
I received my watch yesterday, very wuick delivery, well packaged, much before the estimated time. Still I am over the moon, can’t help but keep looking at it. The watch is robust, solid feel. Neither too big nor too heavy, but big enough if you love a chunky watch. A perfect fit for a medium sized wrist. The colour combination is exactly what I wanted. Dark grey with glowing orange, just stunning! The functions are great, not complicated to set up.
Its true that the light is a bit poor, its hard to see the digits in the dark, only the hands are showing up, but hey who goes out for camping everyday? You want to see the time, it shows it.’
‘Accurist have taken the tried and tested design, reminiscent of the older (non solar powered) Citizen Navihawk watches and produced a range of watches sporting the same style fascia, albeit larger. This results in better readability of the smaller dials. (Also thanks to the white coloured hands).
The watch looks far better in real life. As a watch collector, I am no novice at evaluating watches. True, collectors usually tend towards automatic watches, yet I cannot let such beautiful quality watches slip by, especially when the price is right.
Accurist makes great quality watches and this one is no exception. It comes in a lovely presentation box, which is a plus if you intend to give it as a present. An English instruction manual and a wrist band measuring tape (as with all bracelet watches) are included.
One point worthy of mention is that none of these watches have backlight. This could be a deal breaker for some.’
‘This watch is beautiful and fits comfortable on your wrist recommend this watch to anyone. Goes well with anything you were looks very smart always loved accurist watches.’
‘I bought this watch to replace my other ‘Wave Ceptor’ watch, which I bought over ten years ago. I have a box full of watches, mostly they are Kinetic by Seiko, a Hamilton, a Ladies and Gents Omega watch I have had for over fifty years. A couple of Raymond Weil watches and a CWC Aircrew watch.
But I have to say that if I want sheer accuracy I always use my ‘Wave Ceptor’ watch, it is accurate to the second (Radio Controlled) plus it NEVER needs winding because it is ‘Solar Powered’. The only thing I could say on the ‘Down’ side, is that the Analogue date setting is a bit on the ‘Dark’ side making it a bit difficult to read.
‘Having looked through the extensive range of Citizen watches on here, I noticed this promaster ss. This model is an updated version of the older model of which I use to own, the analogue/digital module is the same as the original. The case and bracelet plus bezel have been given a face up and re-released in the guise of the motor racing/sports world. In fact this watch looks good in any area as it takes inspiration from the aviator watches as well with the sub dials. The case is 45mm from left to right in diameter and 15mm deep so quite large and heavy. The bezel appears to be made of black IP steel and carbon fibre. The bracelet is high quality with a tri fold clasp with safety clip. I was able to adjust this myself as the pins just pop out of each side as there are no collar jackets so using a ‘dart’ from a dartboard I was able to push through each pin in the direction they need to go and pull them out and adjust with ease. The watch is action packed with features, the digital display has world time for 43 cities and there is a timer,lap racing timer,alarm,chronograph. Other features are 200m WR and a sapphire anti reflective crystal for the glass. The buttons have been improved from the earlier model which featured ‘pinball’ machine type pushers on the right hand side but this watch has normal push buttons and a snap down crown. There is also a red backlight for the digital display, the lume at night appears to be quite bright so all round all fine for viewing at night. Overall the style of this watch does feel like that of a Casio edifice watch but with Citizen quality and eco drive power. The price tag is worth it on this model and I am very satisfied that this watch has everything I need to last a lifetime hopefully after a few false starts with watches with promised everything but offered nothing.’
