Casio A164WA-1VES Watch Review

A164WA-1VES Dial & Case Design

This classic looking watch from Casio is made from a chrome plated strong resin and stainless steel. The watch features this neat little digital LCD display with a black surround. The LCD screen is easy to read and reminisscent of Casio’s popular retro watches with its rectangular casing design. The dial also featured a back light for easier reading at night which can often come in useful.

A164WA-1VES Type Of Crystal

The acrylic window lens is a nice choice in my opinion, when you consider we’re going for a retro style, the acrylic just makes sense. It’s not as strong as a mineral crystall glass but it does still have its own benefits. Scratches on a acrylic lens can often easily be buffed out with the right technique, it’s also highly shatter resistant.

A164WA-1VES Watch Movement

At the heart of this Casio timepiece is a popular Japanese quartz movement that’s known for being both reliable and accurate. It’s found in many of these affordable Casio timepieces.

A164WA-1VES Watch Size

Like many of the other retro Casio watches you see available this model also features a smaller watch sizing. The diameter measures 35mm in diameter with a thickness of 10mm. This makes it a small watch by today’s standards, but perfect for those who want the classic retro style.

Casio A164WA-1VES Strap

The strap of the watch is made of stainless steel and fastens with a hook and clasp catch. This style of strap is really easy to adjust the size of as you can just slide part of the catch down the strap to your preferred position. The strap has a width of 19mm nicely in keeping with the rest of the design.

Casio A164WA-1VESExtra Features

The watch features all the normal extras you’d expect to find on these retro digital watches. There’s a stopwatch function, alarm, date display, and a back light.

A164WA-1VES Water Resistance Rating

This model actually has a pretty decent 50m water resistance rating. 50m or 5 bar makes this watch suitable for swimming, white water rafting, non-snorkeling water related work, and fishing.

My Final Thoughts On This Casio A164WA-1VES Review:

Overall I’m really pleased with this watch. It keeps to that retro Casio design that I know a lot of people are after at the moment. Features like the alarm and stop watch as well as the back light are likely to come in handy often. I also like the fact you can easily adjust the size of the strap. If you prefer watches with metal straps and wanted a retro watch then this may be perfect for you.

After looking into the watch design, quality, features, and pricing this watch received an 8/10 from us at The Watch Blog.
