5.0 out of 5 stars Reaching for "now", April 1, 2013

This review is from: Casio Men's AE1100WB-3A Sport Multi-Function Green Dial Watch (Watch)
This inexpensive but technologically amazing watch is remarkable for the variety of ways that it shows time. It records digital time and also contains a small electronic analog clock. It has a 1/100 second stopwatch, timer, and 5 alarms. In addition, and most exceptionally, it displays a world map highlighting individual time zones. There are many world time watches, many far more expensive than this one. As far as I have been able to learn, however, the map feature is unique to a tiny family of Casio watches which includes the present model.

I believe the ultimate reason people are interested in time measurement is an underlying desire to reach the "now" of consciousness--the full awareness of the moment. Many religions recognize the primary importance of this awareness. According to one Jewish tradition, the Israelites collectively heard God declare only the first syllable of the first word of the first of the 10 Commandments. The experience was so overwhelming that they could bear no more, and Moses alone ascended Mount Sinai to receive the rest of the Law. Hundreds of years later in India, the Buddha founded a great and revolutionary religion upon the quest to leave the passage of time behind.

To reach the "now" of consciousness, it is necessary to break one's seemingly inseparable entanglements with the outside world of changing events. The Casio world time watch may help, however slightly, in accomplishing this goal. As one progresses west to east on the watch map through the time zones of the world, the digital time moves forward but the analog clock continues to record the time in the "home" time zone. It is one thing to intellectually understand that time in other locations differs from our home time. It is much more powerfully instructive to graphically SEE time readings fly forward as one symbolically zooms around a world map. This watch is a kind of temporal telescope. A standard telescope allows us to view (and thus in some way become a part of) objects that lie far beyond the limits of the unaided eye. This watch analogously makes it possible to "enter" different times across the world. Experiencing these distant times, meditating on how dependent our measure of time is on our surroundings, it is possible to grasp on a gut level that most meaningful time is that within ourselves.

Out of this family of Casio watches, I have chosen to purchase this particular model because of its comfortable leather and nylon cloth band and large and lovely (though not detailed) map. The map covers the entire top half of the watch face, has longitude markings every 45 degrees, and harmoniously contrasts the light green land masses and the grey oceans. Four latitude lines, including a bold equator, give circular sweep. The green on the watch face blends well with the more darkly tinted green of the band. The only flaw is the very tiny, barely legible analog clock in the center. (Other models enlarge the analog clock so that it is clearly readable but compensate by greatly shrinking the size of the world map.) Superior fashion design here, as everywhere, can be a powerful aid to discovery!

Easier to use than most. Light weight and provides easy access to more than one time zone which I use when I travel. I just wish they could make setting them and changing modes a little easier.

This is a very good watch for the money. The nylon band is great and comfortable. The manual that is sent is so small the print is difficult to read. You can download a manual from "Retrevo.com" ( a safe site ). It is a little tricky to set, but when you do the first time, it becomes easier
