That looks like it might make a worthy successor to my old G-Shock which firstly forgot how to cope with BST and then died altogether.  At the moment I'm back using a near forty year old Seiko which doesn't change date at the right time any more.

Good travelling watch as well as it does World Time. Press the top two buttons together and it swaps between two selected timezones. The hands and the digital display basically swap. When you get back to your home timezone do it again and they swap back. It has DST as well.

What I want is the functions of the Casio in a watch that looks like the Timex (plus a small digital display obviously).
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

I'm one of those people for whom mechanical watches die (automatics are OK but lose too much time) and battery watches run out after about 2 weeks after having replaced the original.

I have a Seiko Kinetic which is fab but too expensive to wear out cycling and a Citizen Eco-Drive, both keep perfick time
