Not the best example of a g shock,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Casio G-SHOCK Men's Solar Digital Watch GR-8900A-1ER with Resin Strap (Watch)
The watch is ok but I've since purchased other g shocks that to my mind are better. The biggest drawback is the negative display which is more difficult to read than a positive display. Some people seem to think the negative display appears "cooler"; fair enough but to me, the value of the g shock range is their functionality, thus rendering aesthetic issues as secondary. Secondly, the watch is not radio controlled which to be honest does not really matter but there is something satisfying about knowing your watch is always spot-on accurate without having to do anything other than make sure it is placed on a window-sill. Nonetheless, the watch is very comfortable and the buttons are easy to press which is not the case on some of the smaller g shocks such as the GW-M5610-1ER where the buttons are tiny and difficult to press. It's an ok watch but there are better g shocks around in my view. I've just purchased the GW-2310-1ER which ticks all my personal boxes.
