That's my Dad's go to watch for many years.
Always thought of getting him one off amazon.

This is a good Dad watch, or 80s nostalgia watch. Highly recommend.

Also great for trades workers.

It is a great value at $16, but the case is not made out of stainless steel. It is plastic coated with chrome which breaks out in flakes due to sweat.

I am willing to pay > $100 if Casio makes the case out of stainless steel.

Actually you look again. I just searched the forum and it's been posted FOUR times in the past day. Stop spamming and check if a deal has already been posted.

I wore one from 1985 to 1992 without any issues, swimming 5-10 times a week. Of course that was then .... The listing specifically indicates "Stainless-steel case" The Casio web page doesn't help: a158wa-1

Since when does over 10x the price get considered "a little"?
It's easy for us watch enthusiasts to get carried away, that 52% off supersedes all rationality :P

I'd have 1-upped with this beauty had it been on sale https://www.amazon.ca/CASIO-OCEANUS-OCW ... B0073B4KVO

What day in 1992 did you stop wearing the watch, and why?

On Amazon.com, the casio support(?) has answered that it is indeed resin/chrome plated. I had a more expensive($150) Casio DataBank watch. It's case looked like this one and the chrome finish wore off wherever it was in contact with skin in 2 years time.

Again, it is still great value at $16 which is $6 more than my lunch everyday.
