Everyday Wear Watch: The Casio MRW-210H in Khaki

Everyday Carry (EDC) is a popular topic for men.  It generates lots of lists of things men carry everyday as they go about their business.  You'll find great suggestions for wallets, pocket knives, multi-tools, field notebooks, and even handguns.  But, what kind of watch do you wear everyday?

Casio MRW-210H in Tan
It's an interesting question because it touches on the watches we wear when we don't necessarily have to go into the office and when a late night run to the convenience store might be more likely than fine dining in the best of local restaurants.  The answers may also vary based on our professions and our hobbies.  Someone who works outdoors or in agriculture or construction may well want to choose a different watch than someone who has an office or work from home (WFH) job.

I find that I often wear a solar-powered Citizen Eco-drive watch or a quintessential bang around like the Casio MRW-210H.  It's easy to read, has a comfortable nylon strap for all day wear, and has a tough resin case.  I've reviewed this model of watch on this blog before here.  However, now, I also have one in an attractive desert tan and black design.  Of course, if you ask me what I'm wearing, I can always say, "Khakis."  

This model of the MRW-210H has numerals that are printed flush on the dial rather than raised a little like on my original watch.  Otherwise, it still has the always useful rotating bezel and 100 meters of water resistance.

For all day wear and for use at a keyboard, this Casio is hard to beat for comfort due to its light weight and a lack of sharp edges or corners on the case or strap.

While this watch looks cool, it's not mugger bait.  It retails for less than $40 in most locations.  If it's not about prestige and just about looking rugged and telling time, this Casio is simply a great choice.

I was able to find a similar watch for a great deal on Amazon.
