My expensive Citizen Eco Drive, perpetual calendar watch watch stopped working after only 4 years. Citizen UK service department wanted £[...] to service it, and said that it would need this service regularly. I told them to forget it as I could buy a better watch from Casio with far more functions. This watch has completely lived up to my expectations. The time keeping is superb and it updates every night so is always spot on. I can also easily read the day and date from the digital display. A very smart looking watch and a lot lighter than the Citizen, with far more functions.
Well done Casio!

I've had this watch for over a year now and it is always second perfect. Every night it checks with the radio time signal so I have complete confidence in it's time keeping. The solar power function is still reading full charge, so no worries over when the battery will fail. I wear it in a tough work environment, yacht sailing and in the shower with no problems at all. On holiday, I've set the small digital screen to local time while the analogue hands remind you of the time at home so you don't phone up in the middle of the night! An attractive, classic design with superb practicality and luminous hands. I would recommend it to anyone, especially sailors like myself. JM.

I bought one of these elsewhere on the understanding that it had a stainless steel case and bracelet. One word had been omitted (perhaps intentionally) from the description and that word is 'back' - the case back is stainless steel but the front components are plastic or resin, and painted to resemble a matte steel finish.

I discovered to my cost when some of the case front started to lose its paint after a few months of light wear, that Casio's warranty specifically excludes the case, bracelet and especially the finish - no exceptions no matter how new. They wanted almost as much to replace the case as it would cost to replace the watch.

If Seiko and Citizen amongst many others can produce a watch at around the same price level without the use of a partially plastic case, why can't Casio?

Best avoided unless the technology is a major reason to buy.

Does everything one could want of a watch. Sets itself to super accurate correct time every day. Water proof. solar powered. adjusts itself for leap years, daylight saving time, irregular month lengths. adjusts itself automatically when you travel to Europe. Has multiple alarms including a discrete hourly beep which can all be turned on or off as required. I still take a strange delight in the hour beep going off EXACTLY in time with the radio time signal. Apart from snobbery why would anyone buy any other watch?

This is a superb watch.

the time is spot on, of course. It's light but strong, looks good, it's comfortable, needs no batteries as it recharges with sun light or artifical light. It has lots of functions. The hands glow in the dark for quite some time. I've worn it swimming too. It's good value, a great investment. I really can't fault it.

Casio Waveceptor WVA-430DU-1AVER

Whilst you can get cheaper Waveceptor and cheaper solar-powered watches, this is one of the cheapest combined RC/Solar watches with UK reception. There are variants with resin straps or titanium/resin bodies and the **a2ver have numbers instead of batons for digits.

Beware! Most, if not all, of the cheaper US market watches will only receive the Radio signal from USA/Japan or USA/Canada and so the Atomic function will be useless in the UK.

Generally, I am very pleased with the watch.

I also have a more expensive Citizen Eco-Drive, which feels more like a 'real' watch (but is not radio-controlled), whilst the Casio is little more than a glorified digital watch with hands...(it has the usual digi 4xbuttons, no crown and a cheap 4-screw back).

The Casio is handsome enough and, being uncluttered, is deceptively plain and simple in appearance, hiding its wealth of functions behind a diminutive (but thankfully backlit) LCD screen. The hands and batons are luminous - even the second hand.

The bit that matters - time-keeping is excellent. It syncs to the radio signal (supposedly accurate to 1 sec every million years) each time, whether near a window (as recommended) or on my wrist. The solar charge keeps topped up in general use; it has power-saving and a selectable power indicator. It has a perpetual calendar - which is maintenance-free for the rest of this century. The LCD will display the day and date or digital time, whilst seconds are another button press away. You have worldtime (29 zones), countdown, 3 alarms and a stopwatch if you want them and it is rated waterproof to 100mtrs (which is equivalent pressure, not depth).

This watch is a replacement for my existing waveceptor which I have had since they were introduced.Although the old watch is still keeping excellent time,it is beginning to lose the plating on the link nearest the watch which is plastic(probably for reception reasons).
If this version gives as good service as the first then I can thoroughly recommend it.
