This was a pleasant surprise, The watch arrived in 3 days on Amazons standard service.. not bad for free! The watch was very attractive, I had not seen one except for the photos which don't do it justice.
The grey appearance in the photos of the bezel is stainless steel, which looks much better in real life.
I was going to buy a cheaper model, and am pleased i opted for this. The back light feature is useful, especially the automatic function. just tip it towards you at night and it lights.. very cool and useful.
At 51 the eyes are getting a bit weaker now, and some of the digits are small, but i can manage ok. The functions are pretty easy to use and not too bad to set up, although i have had a casio g shock before.
I must admit to being an outdoor extreme sports instructor.. getting a bit old for it i know, hay ho. The reason for the choice of g shock was i keep breaking other sports watches, Sekonda, Swatch (top of the line stainless) all fell to bits in no time. I had an early g shock which did well. this one looks solid and will last me years i am sure. I have really large wrists and there was enough strap to go around and leave 2 notches free, well done casio.
