The functions are very good (I dont need to cover them here) and the mix of analogue and digital is great.
However the lighting is provided by an LED on the bottom of the screen. It is great at night for reading the hands however you cannot see the digital displays at all (even though the manual says you can). I was not happy that I could not use most of the additional functions unless it was in daylight. I consider this to be a terrible design.
So I sent the watch back, shame.
I spotted this model in a local jewellers' window and went home and looked it up on my old mates Amazon, where it was going for about 17 quid less. Regrettably there was not much by way of description, but the remote setting sounded cool, it had an analogue face and showed the date, so I went for it.
What I got is pleasingly chunky without being brutish, the face is clear and the hands are luminous. The batteries are light-charged, so no need to faff with all that.
Lamentably there is no second hand, the digital read-out has to be in fairly bright light in order to be able to read it, you can't read it at all if it's quarter past or three something, and the instruction book is about the right size for the hands of a five-year-old seamstress, otherwise you are doomed to fumbling with it as you try to decipher the text, which appears to have lost something in the translation from the original Japanese through every native language on the Silk Road and on westwards to London. Nevertheless, through a process of deduction and trial and error I did manage to make a connection with the atomic clock at Rugby and reset the time. It'll be interesting to see if I can repeat the feat next time I go abroad!
But though it's by no means perfect, overall I consider this to be a good buy and well worth the money.
Footnote added after 18 months' use:
As I suspected, changing the time on this product has its challenges. In three visits to Canada, two of them to Toronto, and three to Spain, including one to Madrid, I have yet to succeed in getting the time to change.Read more ›
This is my first g-shock and I'm not sure if all work the same way, but I've had lots of casios before and the buttons functionality are quite different, so it takes a little bit to get used to it.
When I purchased the watch I was thinking about a buy-and-forget watch, taking into account that it was solar powered and it would be always on time with the atomic clocks; but in fact you have to worry about more things with this watch than with an ordinary one.
So far I haven't had any problems with the rechargeable btteries, but in the manual states that you have to be careful to not cover it with the sleeve, and not keeping it in a dark place like a drawer, etc.
With the radio syncrhonization it happens more or less the same, you have to leave the watch pointing to a window at night and it must be completely still to receive the signal correctly.
Another cons are that if you rely a lot in the digital screens to read the time, you'll find out that the hands can cover it, and it's a major problem when you want to take a look to the date or the day of the week instead of the time. Also, you cannot see everything in just one glaze, as you have to press one button to switch from the time, to the date, to the day of the week...
In brief, a fancy watch for those who want something robust and still a little bit classy, but if you're more a practical person, then it's probably better the one that has the same functionality but it's completely digital, without the analog hands.
I bought this watch as a second watch intended to be worn for 'rough and tumble' activities - camping, mountain biking, swimming, climbing, etc... Where I would rather not risk damaging a more expensive or easily damaged watch, and appreciate the extra build strength of the G Shock series, and for this I believe it is perfect - Basic timekeeping plus a few simple but handy extra features like the stopwatch and alarms and a construction more than capable to handle it.
As for any niggles about this watch? There are a few small ones: The negative (white text on a black display) digital readouts are great in daytime and look fantastic, but become hard to read in lesser lighting conditions (and are not illuminated with the LED light) but do look great and are more subtle than a standard display would be, so don't draw the eye when you only want the analog time.Read more ›
