Casio Edifice EF503D

You can get them in black as well. They really capture the speedmaster look well at an order of magnitude less cost.

That's their sale tactic. They're always on sale, nobody has bought one of those at retail price. You kind of get what you pay for, if not less. Personally wouldn't go for those models, since they are blatant copies of a Rolex Daytona. If you want a good watch at those prices, check Seiko and Casio Edifice. Check this one

Something about us Michiganders and Speedmasters.

I had to settle for a Casio Edifice which is about as close as I can get with what I can afford to spend on a watch right now.

I mean I could get a Speedmaster, but that's a significant chunk of scratch for a hobby I'm still fairly green to.

Maybe a Casio EF-503D? In your price range, it has to be quartz.

u/tunafresh · 3 pointsr/Watches

Nice watch! I found the black dial version too if anyone is interested.

Check warehouse deals. It's 37.99 there ([])

u/nephros · 3 pointsr/Watches

What you want is called a chronograph, which at least in the world of analog watches means a stopwatch right on the main dial, with a dedicated button to start and stop. Such a watch should fill your "quick access" requirement just fine.

Cheapest would probably be the Casio Edifice (example one two three) line of quartz chronos, but there are others, e.g. Timex Fly-Back (another [in white] ( ) There are may other brands like Pulsar, Citizen, Festina or Bulova who offer cheap quartz chronos; even some Seikos go for under $150.

Now of course if you need more features from your stop watch, like multiple timers or lap-times you'll have to look into digital sports watches, there are also plenty of them around (g-Shock is recommended most of the time). Here I's recommend trying them out in a store because usually you won't find the description on how to access the timers on the web easily.

Well, if it's a bracelet you're looking for...

Speedmaster inspired Casio Edifice.

u/mfein123 · 3 pointsr/Watches

I am new to the watch & reddit game. Read posts on reddit and went out and got the Casio EF503D-1AV for $39.99 (Super deal somehow, thanks camelcamelcamel) + Croc strap $12.71 & the MDV106-1AV for $40.99 with the NATO strap for $5.95. Two watches and two straps for $99.64. I love them both. The straps are from Clockwork Synergy straps using a 15% coupon. Thanks for the help.

For sale is this discontinued Casio EF-503D-1AV. Great little speedmastard. $75 shipped within USA.

u/dolichoblond · 3 pointsr/Watches

ProTip: Google "Best [Classic Watch Name] Homage" and you're sure to find a thread or ten on PMWF or Watchuseek. Sometimes there are a bit old and the stock is gone, but here's a few I pulled out of a WUS thread.

u/OneMoreNewYorker · 2 pointsr/frugalmalefashion
u/Kevin_M310 · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I vote neither. If you want a solid chrono, go for this casio and swap out the bracelet for a band in dark brown or black leather.

u/Robinsta5967 · 2 pointsr/Watches

There's always the Casio Edifice.

u/ariffinsha · 2 pointsr/Watches
u/Rawrsomesausage · 2 pointsr/Watches

Haha, yeah the Stargazer is nice.
This is the Casio. I've seen it talked about in the sub before and people seem to like it. For the price, I doubt you can go wrong. It also comes with a white face.
It's more similar to the automatic Speedy and most Valjioux 7750 chronos because of the sub-dial placement.

Edit: This one is also similar.

u/Nixtrix · 2 pointsr/Watches

Assuming your Casio is similar to the EF503D-1AV (for comparison's sake here is yours, the EF503D-7A, on Amazon. Funny note, Amazon lists yours as having a band width of 7 mm.) the listed band length is 20 mm which corroborates with what mirite had found. This means your 19 mm band you've picked out to replace the metal one with would fit but it may be a tad small for the actual area but it is a safe bet so i'd say go for it!

u/Aevum1 · 2 pointsr/Watches

Maybe you can still find some swatch automatic chronographs based on the C01.211 but they are basicly disposable.

Also the chinese airforce with the ST19 allows a mechanical chronograph for quite cheap, (not automatic) but reliability is an issue, sizzle watches also has this which is Panerai inspired and uses a chinese 7750, dont expect reliability or accuracy,

Unless you want to buy a 2nd hand Seiko 6138, i dont think you should go for anything mechanical under 700-900 bucks which is what entry level swiss 7750´s cost.

Now quartz wise, you were right to look Casio, Seiko and Citizen. The japanese still make some of the best quartz movements around, Casio makes bottom bargin watches which are amazing.

If you want something sporty, Omega speedmaster Inspired

Something Millitary Inspired ?

Or maybe something with a bit of class to it

u/ryayy · 2 pointsr/Watches

I have been thinking of getting this watch, but am concerned with the build quality. Also I was considering buying the Casio Chronograph instead. What is your opinion? (I would put a nato strap on either)

u/mxfi · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice
u/MyNameIsntGerald · 2 pointsr/Watches

can you link me the amazon page? I tried to find it but there always seems to be different names for it and I can never find it.

Edit: found it, the nomenclature for this watch seems to change slightly every time someone posts one, but now I have found it

u/COLONCOMPANION · 2 pointsr/Watches

Casio EF503D. Stainless case and bracelet, chronograph and date, and not too chunky. Inspired by the Omega Speedmaster. As a fellow college student, this is by far my most worn piece.

u/tooncesthecat · 1 pointr/Watches

If it were me I'd spend as little as possible today and save for the real thing (especially since you're in college). That said, I'm not sure if you've seen this particular Casio Edifice, but the EF503 is a decent Speedmaster homage (sorry for the formatting, I'm on mobile)...

u/JaggedOne · 1 pointr/Watches

Is this the watch you mentioned as being completely silent?

That is a Casio. I thought eco-drive was a Citizen watch feature?

u/zptc · 1 pointr/Watches



I was never a fan of bracelets, especially since I have small wrists and the sizing makes the clasp sit awkwardly. I had a devil of a time finding a small, quality strap but finally managed to, even though shipping from Germany takes a bit of time (2 weeks, in this case, slightly prolonged because of holidays I'm sure).

The padding helps the strap match the case thickness better, but it's rather inflexible and the shortness of the strap doesn't help there. Overall, though, I'm quite happy with how it turned out.

u/Ladyslayer777 · 1 pointr/Watches

Start by checking out the r/watches buying guide for watches under $250. There are a lot of good recommendations in there. The Casio MDV106 can be had for less than $70 (and often goes on sale for less than $50) and it does a good job of giving a Rolex Submariner-ish look without being a straight-up copy. You mentioned that you like the look of the Omega Speedmaster, so take a look at the Casio EF503D for a similar look and much lower price. If you're looking for a mechanical, there are lots of good options listen in the buying guide, like the Seiko SKX007, which shares some visual similarities to the Rolex Sub, but very much has it's own distinct design as well.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

I'm not a big fan of the font used for the numbers, it's not for me. It's also not sold by If they had used a sans-serif font I'd have liked it a lot.

I just bought this watch used and while this one isn't sold by, this black one is. I love it so far. It's meant to resemble the Omega Speedmaster professional. It's just a Casio but for $50 I'm quite happy with it and it's well-liked on Reddit and watchuseek.

This fossil watch worked out to more than I wanted to spend but I like it a lot and with 20% off it'd be right in your price range. It has a cream-coloured face and is really nice in my opinion.

Both watches I have recommended are 41mm, which are not too big on my 6.5mm wrist, they're actually perfect. I imagine they'd still be ok on as small as a 6" wrist. They're 1mm bigger than the black Seiko you're looking at for reference.

u/dasilvasays · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I've been wearing this nearly daily the past year. copped it on sale for $60. after taking out 2 or 3 links it fit my wrist perfectly

u/chrispscott · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

You've got a few different options. If you want a dressier chrono this Skagen is a nice starting point. If you want something a bit sportier the Casio EF503D is another solid choice in addition to the Seiko Chrono I posted in the blog.

u/whitest_lightning · 1 pointr/Watches

How do I remove the bracelet on my Casio edifice EF503D? I see pictures of it on leather or NATO straps here all the time, but I can't for the life of me find a way to get the springbar out.

u/imalloverthis · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Your strap on the submariner looks great. On a related note, I would love a red october for my Casio Edifice arriving tomorrow. :)

u/Nick_Po · 1 pointr/Watches

Take a look at some of the Casio Edifice models, I picked one up a while ago for $70 and feel like it was a great value. Here are a couple from Amazon:

u/LaunchGap · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

i have the casio edifice and i love it. the case is the same size as the mako, but it lays on the wrist very well and doesn't look too big. the mako looks very bulky on my wrist. the casio has solid links too if you're into bracelets. aside from the casio, i would stay under 41mm tho. my wrists are 6.5".

u/Seeker80 · 1 pointr/Watches

You've got a pretty diverse set of options. There's stuff like this Tissot. It fits the bill technically, but would also wear through your whole budget. You'd have to decide if you really want to pay that much for an automatic Tissot, when you really want an Omega. Quartz models are also far cheaper, so that's another consideration.

You can come in far under budget with a quartz Casio Edifice. This can reasonably scratch the itch, and you can spend the rest of the budget on other watches you want, or whatever.

You can also just spend a little more for a secondhand Speedmaster automatic in the first place.

I am not sure which one i should go for, Mahogany or the Horsebutt Watch Strap for the Casio Edifice

//edit: ordered the Horsebutt strap.

u/jKK- · 1 pointr/Watches

It's not the initial style you were thinking about, but just for some variety, the Casio edifice series is pretty well received around here, and they have a good quality chronograph on sale currently for $39.99. If you like how it looks, you can't go wrong. With a leather band this thing is very pleasing to the eye.

u/KinkyKankles · 1 pointr/Watches

Opinions on [this Crown and Buckle Strap] ( vs [this Etsy Horween strap] ( It'd sit on a [Casio EF503D-1AV "Edifice"] ( I can't figure out which would match the watch better, and I concerns on the longevity of the lined C&B strap.

u/jarmus · 1 pointr/Watches

I know you said automatic - but here's a quartz that might have the look you're going for @ well below $500:
