First class watch
on 4 February 2017
Previously bought four years ago. Battery was fading a bit and the strap broke. Can't live without a watch so bought a new one.
Have now replaced the battery on the old one (see note below) and have ordered a new strap for under £2. So I will have a spare for when the strap goes again. If I had thought ahead I would have bought a spare strap earlier and wouldn't have needed to buy a new watch.
Not all Casio watches have 'Illuminator' illumination for night time, I had one before with a tiny light at the side which was useless.
Though the same model as before, the new one has easier to press buttons which is good. An excellent watch and if you don't like the strap buy a fancy strap, 18mm, and fit it easily.
Note re battery change. Once upon a time some (most?) Cassio watches required a reset after a battery change. This reset consisted of short-circuiting two connections inside, if you knew which to short-circuit. Glad to say this time with my old watch not only was that not required but the watch retained/restored its settings. How long you can have the battery out I don't know. The four small screws holding the back can be undone with a fine cross-tip or simple straight-tipscrewdriver. The screwhead has one bar-slot cross-cut to suit the latter and the other bar-slot is only partly cut across. A good magnifier or simple microscope is helpful especially to my old eyes.
