A Closer Look at The Casio AE1200WH-1A World Timer

There are multitudinous ways that one can find a value in a timepiece. As a person who has a watch fetish, there is no one thing that draws me to a watch. Some of the watches I own would be considered expensive by most, while others are extremely inexpensive by any standard. While I love quality and craftsmanship, I also love bold and colorful designs. I can see value in almost any watch if it appeals to me in the right way. When it comes to watches, Casio is no stranger to the market. I often tell people don’t become over-engrossed in watches that are out of your budget because no matter what your budget is there will be plenty of watches that will be awesome to wear. Plus, with today’s technology, even the cheapest watches keep good time. How long they will last is a completely different story. While most people think of the G-Shock when you mention Casio, there are other models that are dependable and aesthetically, please. One is the Casio AE1200WH-1A World Timer.

The Casio AE1200WH-1A World Timer is comparable and contemporaneous to the G-Shock. It may not have the popularity ratio of the G-Shock but it does not have to in order to be considered a respectable timepiece. The watch has a 10-year lithium battery, reliable quartz timing, and the highly dependable LCD display. While there are contemporary elements in the watches design, there is also a retro-appeal to it. It actually has some similarities to the Casio F-91W, a model released in 1991.

Remaining true to form, the watch has five daily alarms, a stopwatch, and a countdown timer. Now, it would not be considered as a functional display watch if it did not possess an on-demand lighting system. As with all Casio timepieces, the primary nature of the design is functionality, and this watch is definitely functional. It this case, functional means anything but boring. The watch’s display is very busy but extremely neat at the same time.

If I had to choose one part of this watch that makes it stand out, it would be easy for me. The world map display is so awesome. The world map display is located above the primary time display and to the right. If you happen to be traveling the world map function makes selected the correct time zone extremely easy. Another thing about this watch that makes it practical is that its busy display does not rob it of its intuitive nature. If you put the watch on you can discover most of its functionality without ever opening the manual. If you are like most men, you are not thinking about touching that manual, and with the Casio AE1200WH-1A World Timer, you will not have to.

Using the world map feature will expose you to unique truths about how the world observes time zones. For instance, despite the size of China, the entire country observes one singular time zone, which is UTC + 8:00. What makes this design so special is that it appears to be organic or innate, meaning it seems to just have existed instead of being designed with some specific purpose in mind. There are some watches that make bold statements, but this watch is simplistic, pragmatic, and unpretentious in space it creates for itself. No, it is not for everyone. It is made for the person who is not looking for a watch to make a statement but for a watch to accent and serves a practical purpose. It is not as broad and bold as the G-Shock, but it does maintain a certain technological appeal. This is watching literally becomes more satisfying and enjoyable the longer you wear it. Where the G-Shock grows on you, the Casio AE1200WH-1A World Timer slowly reaches out and grabs you.

When I look at this watch, it takes me back to the 1980s when digital watches were the thing. It definitely has a retro appeal that will captivate the mature male. Not that it won’t get the attention of millennials, it has a broad reach. Now, here is the best part of this discussion, this gorgeous and functional watch can become a part of your collection, or maybe even start your collection for the highly reasonable price of $24.95.
