Not yet but I will someday. Tough to find the right deal on one. IMO they are very cool and tough as nails.

acurate dig compass, depth gage, altimeter. LARGE Font.
I think it tells time too :)

I've only owned 3 Casio digital watches my entire life:

(1) The late 70s - early 80s version of this one. The calculator buttons "rubbed off" rather quickly but the whole concept never really worked for me.

(2) Mr. G MRG-1G-1VT which while nice simply never felt right on my wrist so I sold it.

(3) GW-5600BF-1JF I still have. A solar atomic reverse display number that features the ever classic "5600" rectangular shape that seems to be the only one that works on my wrist.

A nit on this one and a few of its cousins is the use of the strap to lock over the 4 screw down backplate. It eliminates the use of those nifty adapters allowing the watch to be worn on a NATO strap (unless you want a fugly huge hump on one side caused by the canted lugs).

This picture shows the different lugs on each side of the case. I still hate the resins straps. The composite metal bracelet shown here would fit my watch but at almost $100 shipped they can keep it!

I think were I in the market for a bulletproof digital I'd be looking at Suunto :)
