Please meet the economical, lightweight version of the Casio Gulfmaster! This black analogue/digital watch with a red and blue bezel might be 30g lighter than the GWN-1000 series, but it doesn't lose its
toughness, and is one of the best watches for surfers and marines to use.
It is 200m water resistant, so you can go swimming with it (and being lighter in weight means it won't weigh you down as much). It also has a dual tide graph, which shows not only how low or high the tide is, but which direction it's coming from.
If you're a captain, then you'll definitely make use of the digital compass, which includes a bearing memory so you can tell if you're still going in the right direction

All in one review by Piers G on 1/10/2016
You hear that term a lot but this one is the closest I've seen to backing up the claim. There are so many features, every single one that I would need. I've had this for a month now and haven't found myself wishing for a feature that wasn't there.
Takes a while to get used to but great once you get past the hurdles review by Ken on 26/09/2016
The watch itself is fantastic, don't get me wrong here. I love the features, the backlight, and that it's shock and water proof (or resistant). The one thing I disliked was the strange symbols that were put in place instead of numbers for the time. The screen itself looks pretty busy but you get used to it after a while, it's just the initial "culture shock" that made me struggle to read and understand it at first.
Well rounded watch review by Tony on 28/08/2016
Got this for my birthday. I love sailing so this is a really helpful thing to have. Particularly like the tide graph since it helps me plan my trips.
