Well done Casio!
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.
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.
I now have had this watch over two years and it's perfect, spot on to the second without any setting and still the glass is un-scratched as new.
I have worn this watch for over two years and regularly use it in water. It still looks great and works great. It's the watch I gauge everything by because of its 100% accuracy.
After buying the watch it may be necessary to have the wrist strap adjusted at a Casio authorised jewellers and is likely to cost around £10. After that, you shouldn't have to visit the jewellers again as the battery is powered by the sun (rather than waves as the name suggests). How GREEN is that?
The only problem I have is when I am travelling abroad and I need to reset the time. Despite being a technical person I sometimes have to fiddle to remember how to work it out. The watch has lots of features and comes with a rather small/large user operating manual i.e. small pages and lots of them. I would recommend downloading the PDF version from Casio and keeping it to hand e.g. mobile phone (if it supports it).
The alarms are invaluable when working in a busy environment even to remind me when its lunch time! The World Time feature is great for letting me know the time in another country or continent.
All in all, it's one of the best watches I have ever owned!

An excellent watch. Shame that the part of the wrist strap that connects to the body of the watch is plastic. Also the face is plastic not glass. Read morePublished on 28 Dec. 2010 by G. Thomas
