Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Casio Gents Solar Radio Watch Edifice EQW-M710DB-1A1ER (Watch)
This watch is brilliant. Not only does it look great but as I learnt how to use the features I realised how clever the design is, having digital display watch features on an all analogue face. It displays world time on the smaller dial so you can see it all the time, the clever design here is that this dial is 24 hours which gets round the problem of how to display if the world time is AM or PM. When you are in the other country with a couple of button presses you can swap the world time to be on the main hands and UK time on the smaller dial. The smaller dial is also used to set the alarm time and the second hand points to on or off to show the alarm state. The radio time signal is brilliant, it means the watch stays at the right time so no more calling 123 for the speaking clock, I now use this watch to set my other clocks by, and when the clocks change it does it for me so my alarm still sounds at the right time so I'm not 1hr late or early. The reason I was looking for a new watch was that my old watch kept stopping after I had the battery changed, this one being solar charged and with the radio controlled time means this watch looks after itself. It's not to chunky or heavy on my wrist. I'm really pleased with my choice and highly recommend this watch.

Does it have a reserve power indicator? Thanks

Not explicitly. It has 3 power levels. Full charge, semi charge and low charge. At full charge it simply ticks normally. Provided you give it a daily top-up of sunlight it should stay at that level. It indicates when the power reserve has dropped by ticking every 2 seconds instead of every second. That indicates you must charge it. At low charge level it disables all the dials and keeps time only internally until you recharge it or it drains completely.
