About AE-1200 in Short. The AE1200 series is a plastic-bodied, LCD digital, multifunction watch. Like the vast majority of Casio watches, it is made to be used hard, so even though it does not have a massive, bulletproof case like a G-Shock, it is still good for a very useful 100m water resistance and has a 10-year battery life.
