The casio has the blue border. Here's an amazon link
and the other one is blue and tan
The way I see it you can either get this and pick up a new one for the price of some beer, or go with something like a Breitling B1 or one of their ana-digi pilot's watches. Or go whole hog and get an Omega X-33.
Especially as there are fully steel (classic) watches, such as from Casio, that cost less than 50 euros for steel watch AND steel band together. :P And as we all know, Casio has awesome build quality, their watches are basically tanks in terms of sturdiness.
Edit: less than $20 even: [link]

I wear the slightly larger A168W model. This watch is fashionable atm but the style has been around since the 80s and is pretty proven to look good with most anything. It even looks great with a suit.
Not sure how to find those departement stores in my country, every shop that sells watches is unaffordable for my standards. Just for an example this thing here can be found at a minimum price of 40 euros. I feel like I don't really need the date thing, maybe if one day I'll want to update my watch I'll definitely think about it. Ty.

I love it because the button on the right switches between 12hr and 24hr time. Perfect for report and note writing. And it's cheap enough to be semi-disposable. Only complaint is the metal clasp comes undone at times. You might want to look into the black with a rubber strap that won't come undone.
Looks like a Casio A158WA
try out the Casio bracelet! its worth the $18 on amazon

I'm a little late. Do you have a recommendation on style if you were going to add to my collection? I currently have the Timex Weekender, old school casio, and the Huawei Watch.

They're cheap af (metal version is 12 bucks, resin is 10), meaning you don't need to worry about them.
They run a quartz movement that rarely drops more than a second a month, most times much less.
Their battery lasts up to 10 years depending on backlight usage.
They're surprisingly durable with a strong water resistance and a tightly packed case.
I could sing their praises for a while. Just ask /r/watches, they're killer timepieces.
Just get a nice metal band. I'm a cheapskate so I have this.
I like the look of Casio's Retro watches, is this a good one [link] ansl could I put a NATO strap on it and it so what strap would be best. Also any other cheap watches that look good I need something that tells the time well. I am also considering the world time casio watch (A500) and it seems like it would fit better on my wrist (bigger). [link]

Casio Men's A158W-1 Stainless Steel Digital Watch [link]
I've worn this daily for over 2 years and it's great.
what type of watch are you looking for, in terms of style? bauhaus/diver/automatic/etc?
if you want something cheap, simple and functional you can always go with the casio retro, the classic timex weekender, or if you'd like to go a little further in the watch game, an automatic seiko 5.

Most "minimal" quartz watches have <10 USD movements in them so what you are paying for is fashion. These are the MVMT, Daniel Wellington, Nixon, Fossil, ect. You can buy them if you like the way they look, there is nothing wrong with that, but know they are built fairly cheaply and marked up to +$100 for no reason other than fashion. You can checkout DHGate and buy a fake DW watch for $7-12 from China that will be identical in quality to the actual DW watch, and could potentially even come from the same supplier! (not recommending, just commenting)
It really depends on what styles you like and how much you want to spend.
Watches I would recommend that are in my opinion minimal:
<strong>Casio Men's A158WA-1DF</strong>.
Its not super aesthetically minimal, but its ultra cheap, I think it is relatively stylish, impeccably reliable, easy to read, good features (light, alarm, stopwatch, long battery life). This watch got me through a year aboard a Nuclear Submarine and served me well as an alarm clock, stop watch, and time keeper. It dresses up and down very easily, and I wore it to dinner in foreign ports as well as in the engine room taking logs on equipment. I still have it in my rotation. At 33mm thick, with an 18mm band that tapers, this watch has a very low profile, minimal wrist presence. For 12 bucks you cant not want one.
Much more expensive, especially for an entry level piece, but very well made. Mechanical, Japanese movement, built in Germany, certain to impress watch enthusiasts and normies alike. Its automatic, meaning it does not have a battery, and a mechanism winds the watch up due to the movement of your wrist throughout the day. This also means that if you dont wear it for a few days it can stop running, but all you need to do is give it a shake and set it again to get it going. There are some quarts models by Junkers that are cheaper, also even some models with Automatic Swiss movements, worth taking a look. Some cool features this watch has are the power meter, so know by how much the movement is wound as well as ability to perform as a 24hr watch for military time. Easily made a dress watch but good as an everyday casual watch as well. 41mm case, so it will wear very modern (ie large).
This watch is not as minimal in the aesthetic sense, ie the face has more than just tick marks at each hour, and it has both day and date functions. It is another automatic, and I will argue that it is still pretty minimal. At ~50-60USD is is a perfect entry level choice for a first automatic/mechanical watch, and comes in several colors. Well made for the price. At 37mm it wears much smaller than most popular fashion watches (one of the reasons I recommend it as a minimal watch). It will suit you in both casual and fomal settings, and will appeal to both watch nerds and every day people. Not gaudy or pretentious like a Swiss made, gold piece, but it has some character and soul. I would recommend if you buy this watch to also pick up a band, as the one supplied from Sieko is uncomfortable and unattractive in my opinion. The watch will do well on a Nato band, or a light tan leather band (check out the amazon reviews user photos)
<strong>Casio Men's MQ24-7E</strong>
Another Casio, not as versatile since it is very casual, but undeniably minimal. Very similar to the watch worn by the Pope. If you want ultra cheap, reliable, and analog this is a good choice.
There are many, many other good choices out there. Good Luck, and I hope this helped!
I've seen him wearing one of these in a couple shots, as his daily wear. Perhaps he kept it on during the filming too?
No, but this isn't as informal as most.
