The Casio Duro 200 MDV106-1A dive watch is a well known time piece among watch collectors for various reasons. One of the biggest reasons why anyone would consider purchasing a Casio Duro MDV106-1A is definitely because of the price. You can pick one up for 44.99USD on Amazon, (Free) with Prime Shipping.
Casio Duro 200 was paired with a Rollball 316L Stainless Steel Watch Bracelet which is designed for Seiko 5
Surely, you would not expect much out of a 44.99USD watch. But hey, you’ll be surprised with the beyond average specs that comes with the Casio Duro MDV106-1A dive watch. The Casio MDV106 features a 200m (660 feet) water-resistance, unlike many other “diver-style” watches, at the cost of 44.99USD.

At the price level of 44.99USD, you’ll be happy if the watch was 50m water-resistance, or if it was not water-resistant at all. Some people may find it hard to believe that a 200m water-resistance costs only 44.99USD. To be honest, what assurances do you need with a 44.99USD watch. Would you feel much better if we told you that Mr Bill Gates wears the Casio MDV106 dive watch on a daily basis.

As a fan of big watches, the 44mm case on the Casio Duro MDV106-1A is just the perfect size for. Although the comfort test was not done with Casio’s standard factory resin strap, but instead, we used one of our new Seiko 5 Sport fitted Super Engineer II bands and we certainly did not expect with how it feels and the looks of it around my wrist.

Better yet, while doodling around during the product shoot, we found out the Casio MDV106 model somehow able to fit with our fitted watch bands for the New Seiko 5 Sports models. How good is that? Honestly, there’s no reason for any watch collectors to not pick up a Casio Duro model for themselves

Whether you are using it to wear on a daily basis, a back up (carefree) watch that you don’t have to worry about damaging it, or even to practice installing a watch-band. Its a 44.99USD purchase that you would not regret and probably the best 44.99USD you’ve ever spent.
