I've had this watch for over a year now and it is always second perfect. Every night it checks with the radio time signal so I have complete confidence in it's time keeping. The solar power function is still reading full charge, so no worries over when the battery will fail. I wear it in a tough work environment, yacht sailing and in the shower with no problems at all. On holiday, I've set the small digital screen to local time while the analogue hands remind you of the time at home so you don't phone up in the middle of the night! An attractive, classic design with superb practicality and luminous hands. I would recommend it to anyone, especially sailors like myself. JM.

My expensive Citizen Eco Drive, perpetual calendar watch watch stopped working after only 4 years. Citizen UK service department wanted £[...] to service it, and said that it would need this service regularly. I told them to forget it as I could buy a better watch from Casio with far more functions. This watch has completely lived up to my expectations. The time keeping is superb and it updates every night so is always spot on. I can also easily read the day and date from the digital display. A very smart looking watch and a lot lighter than the Citizen, with far more functions.
Well done Casio!

I bought one of these elsewhere on the understanding that it had a stainless steel case and bracelet. One word had been omitted (perhaps intentionally) from the description and that word is 'back' - the case back is stainless steel but the front components are plastic or resin, and painted to resemble a matte steel finish.

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.

This is a superb watch.

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.

Does everything one could want of a watch. Sets itself to super accurate correct time every day. Water proof. solar powered. adjusts itself for leap years, daylight saving time, irregular month lengths. adjusts itself automatically when you travel to Europe. Has multiple alarms including a discrete hourly beep which can all be turned on or off as required. I still take a strange delight in the hour beep going off EXACTLY in time with the radio time signal. Apart from snobbery why would anyone buy any other watch?

I think that this is a very good looking watch ( I've always thought Casio watches are good value for money) its a nice expensive looking watch (which at this price is not). Spot on for timing to the second updated each day. It should have 5 stars but the reason why its lost one star is that only the little date/digital time segment at the bottom lights up, if the whole dial lit up it would have 6 stars. I have had mine for over a year now and its screen has no scratches, for me this is excellent the glass must be toughened. It took me 5 minutes to ajust the strap to fit Perfectly.
Update-----
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 am not sure why the picture of the watch always makes the face look blue when in fact it's dark GREY).

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!

I was very impressed with the time keeping but very dismayed when after just a couple of months the "silver" casing wore to reveal a grey plastic. Now looks cheap.
