I'm a bit of a watch 'addict' to be honest, and seem to get bored of them very quickly and shift them on. I've had a couple of G-Shocks, and I seem to get bored of them very quickly, despite their famed construction and durability. This watch, however, is the perfect 'spare' to my main watch. The beauty of this watch is that it will sit quietly in the draw for days / weeks, and you can forget it's there. Then when you need it for the weekend, just whip it out the drawer. The minute the solar panels detect light, it wakes the watch up, and because of the atomic time keeping it will be accurate to the second. The auto light is brilliant, in so much that the watch will only light up when you turn your watch to check the time in dim / poor / no light. At all other times just leave the function activated and your battery will be spared. The functions are a little basic by todays standards. The 4 alarms are a little excessive, but the snooze function is a god send for me. The 24hr stop watch is great to have, but the countdown timer is only 60 minutes, and can only be set in minutes, not seconds. The time zones are a nice extra feature to have. The display is simple yet classy, the dark grey charcoal effect strap and case look great, and it is very light making it extremely comfortable on the wrist. I'd be happy to use this as my main watch, but my Omega takes precedence. A great watch that is beautifully understated, getting the basics absolutely spot on and not overcomplicating matters.
