MDV106-1A Quartz Movement
There is regular quartz movement and there is a specialized quartz movement. Specialized quartz, of course, means either Japanese or Swiss quartz. While both Alpine and non-Alpine watch designers the world over have used quartz movement technology over the years to make their designs more accessible to the budget conscious, a lot can be said for Japanese quartz.
You see, Japanese quartz technology might not get the same amount of dizzying fanboy love as Swiss quartz technology, but the Japanese give the Swiss quite a run for their money. Japanese quartz technology is all about finding a happy marriage between low cost, durability, and precision. In the expert hands of Casio (which began to make a global name for itself beginning in the 70s-80s), the MDV106-1A timepiece’s quartz movement not only crashed this watch’s price but also provides a high level of assurance.
Luminous markers and date
When it comes to watching design, any budding watch fan quickly discovers that it is always the small details that make or break a watch’s design and overall perceived value. A watch design can stick so closely to the bare basics that the watch runs the risk of looking outright cheap. The good news is that you don’t have to worry about looking cheap with the MDV106-1A. Seriously.
Thanks to this unit’s luminous markers/hands and its inclusion of a date window, you get stylish flourishes and added value. All told, this watch’s different elements come together smoothly. You don’t get the distinct impression of a cheap mash-up of timepiece elements with an ABS plastic strap. Instead, you get the distinct impression that you’re wearing a nice piece of quality Japanese chronometric engineering. Thanks to this unit’s Casio brand, this unit pulls off quite an impression of value for money.

Sure, it isn’t as flashy as other watches in its class. However, given its low price tag and quality components, this watch makes for quite a compelling casual acquisition
