I decided to buy this watch as my normal watch will be away for 10 weeks getting repaired.I had whittled my choice down to this & the GW 3000 but after reading some negative reviews went with this one. First of all I would have went for the more expensive blue face but this is the only colour that comes with the rubber strap-Come on Casio give us more choice.Out of the box the yellow & black isn't quite as loud as the picture & the watch itself is slightly bigger than medium sized but not as large as some that I have seen,bigger than my Seamaster but not as big as a Breitling. This is not a watch to stick right on your wrist straight from the box,read the instructions especially if your time zone has DST as it's not quite as simple as set your country & go! The manual states that you can manually set the time but I couldn't figure it out & ended up having to leave it until it synced with the time signal.One review of this watch stated that the LED light allowed you to see the digital screens as well but the reviewer must have better eyes than me,yes you can see the screen but you can't read them but to be honest I've just got it set for the day/date at the minute so it's not essential.There are features of this watch that will be seldom used but I would suggest that every time that I will use them I will have to go back to the manual. The major draw for this watch,for me, is the solar power & atomic time keeping, that & I hope that it will last as long as the G-shock in my drawer that is still going after +20 years.
