After alot of research I decided upon this one as I prefer a rubber strap as apposed to a metal strap. The company that I bought it from via Amazon Trendor were excellent. Firstly the price was extremely competitive and from ordering to delivery was only 3 days from Germany.
Although the watch is a bit awkward to set up I found several you tube demonstrations that eased the process.
Once in the main time setting it is easy and to be honest all I had to do was change the hour hand from German time to UK time.
Others have mentioned that the face is very small and some of the sub dials are difficult to read, this is true but it does not hamper the useage of the watch. There is a stop watch, alarm and world time, once you get to grips with were the watch hands are in relation to the watch face it is easy.
Make sure you shop around and keep a look out for this watch. I put it in my wish list and ensured I got a good deal on it - don't pay more than £170.00.
All in all I am very pleased with the watch and would recommend it to anyone - and it looks fantastic compared to the photos that there are of it online - look it up on you tube to see it in action.
The first thing that absolutely must be said: This is a seriously sexy watch and the picture simply can't do it justice! The understated colour(s) and textures - even on the band - surrounding the bold highlights all work together to create an extremely pleasing aesthetic. I have to stress that, aside from the highlights and what the picture may imply, this watch is definitely black. Terry Pratchett once referred to "shades of black" when describing Death's home; that, in my mind, is the most apt description for this watch.
The look - A large, visible face that clearly provides you with the information you bought it for: local time, day, date, 24 hour time (why?) and the time in some far away (or not so far away) city.
The build - This watch oozes that weighty, solid reassurance that it won't let me down. Tasteful enough for a suit, happier outdoors getting bashed about!
Atomic Timekeeping - The name sounds like marketing jargon to me, but it works and that's what really matters. My £60 digital has never had the time wrong and updates every night. I know this, because it lets me check in the morning! Upon setting this up, I noticed it was 2 minutes out from my phone. One time set later, it adjusts by 2 minutes and now matches my phone's time to the second. Ultimately, it gives me the right time and is this not the whole purpose of a watch?

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 ›
