The feature set of this watch is impressive. It supports Casio's six band radio controlled time regulation, meaning that if you're in Western Europe, the USA, Japan or China the watch should adjust itself automatically every day to show the precise time. Outside of that it reverts to the "usual" +/-15 secs a month. You also get a chronograph (accurate to 100th second if your "operating finger" is that reliable!), a world time function (dual time zone basically) and alarm functions. It's solar powered, so you'll never need to change a battery.
By comparison to it's predecessors in the "Aviator" range I believe that this model has a somewhat lager face, offset by a slightly slimmer case. The case provides all the usual G-shock protection, depth rated to 200M and this model has also been subjected to the dizzying limits of sustaining 15G (hopefully I'll not be testing that) and to prove the point Casio have used the RAF skiing team to promote this model, which I'm sure will be reassuring to know!Read more ›
I knew I would test what charge the battery had by playing with it all evening, so I set it on the window sill for 30mins to charge before I cracked on. The manual does take a few reads to understand but I soon had my world time city set and then the alarm. I tried the alarm during the evening and found that the volume wasn't very loud. Hopefully that was because of the sounds of the house. Hopefully it will be better in the quiet of tomorrow morning to wake me up. Having said that if you want an alarm to prompt you during the day, you might miss it.
I love the size of this watch, it feels really substantial on my wrist. There are some who say it is just a dressed up GW-3000 but that one has too much going on around the bezel/circumference which makes the actual face smaller than this watch. The GW-3000 also does not have button descriptions on the front. With the amount of features and button combinations, this is quite useful.
As the title of this review says I also love just selecting the next feature in the cycle and watching the hands just spin!
Overall a great watch, little complicated to set up, but once done you shouldn't need to do any more set up. That does mean of course that when I go on holiday next year and want to set a new world time I will have to dig the instructions out again.Read more ›
