With the launch of its first watch in November 1974, Casio entered the wristwatch market at a time when the watch industry had just discovered digital technology. As a company with cutting-edge electronic technology developed for pocket calculators, Casio entered this field confident that it could develop timepieces that would lead the market.
Today, Casio is focusing its efforts on solar-powered radio-controlled watches: the built-in solar battery eliminates the nuisance of replacing batteries, atomic timekeeping means the users never have to reset the time. Recently, Casio launched a series of Bluetooth watches that sync to the users cell phone to automatically update the time. Casio is always moving time forward.

- Solar and radio sync'ed with time signal, no problem syncing every night, just have to make sure I point it west (I live in San Antonio, TX). When I am where I'm not sure where the transmitter is, I wear it to sleep, and looks like I move around enough that it eventually succeeds syncing. No problem syncing in California, Texas, Poland, Holland. I'm going to Asia in a month, we'll see.
- Switching to a different time zone is easy, if a bit long due to the time zone selecton only going one direction - going from west to east is easy, east to west requires sweeping the whole globe, and if you don't push the button fast enough you have to wait until the needle sweeps. They should have programmed another button to sweep in reverse
- As a "set and forget", this is genius. Keeps the time on the nose (with sync every night, unbeatable precision), never have to wind, no battery to change (had several waterproof watches with batteries, waterproofing dies at 2nd battery change), autmatically changes date regardless of month, changes to Daylight saving.
- Tried stopwatch and down counter, they work but I don't use them much.
- Not the least, looks cool with big dial and 3 sub-dials, with metal bracelet with composite inserts. Clasp is easy to put in, and secure with the 2 buttons you need to grasp to unhook. Much better than pure friction clasp, had a few of those and they keep on unhooking by themselves.
- Casio lost a good opportunity, would have preferred the 24 hours needle to show home time while I'm traveling - checked with customer service, not possible.
- The seconds hand is actually in the small, lower dial, the big seconds hand is actually a function indicator, takes a while to get used to it.Read more ›
1. Yes the watch case is big (~44 mm), but the watch face under the crystal is not that big (I measure 28 mm diameter). Thus, all the markings in the dial are smaller than you'd expect in a big 44 mm watch. So if you have eyes over 40 yrs. old, it's a struggle to read the lettering under 1 mm in size.
2. Gold on black color scheme of watch is very cool, but the world city names/time zones around the dial are in faint gold paint on a black background and sub 1 mm in size, so they are very hard to read at least for me.
3. Stopwatch can only time events up to 1 hour. If you want to time a 2-hour exam, or a 90 minute parking meter, you can't use the stopwatch. Countdown timer starts at max of 1 hour so you cannot count down from longer than that either. Kind of disappointing for me.
4. Stopwatch does not beep when you push start or stop. No way to turn on a beep either. Since the pushbuttons also do not have a tactile click, it's difficult to know when the stopwatch has been started or stopped except by looking at the moving hands.
5. As someone else mentioned, a minor nitpick: moving from home time to world time or alarm set time requires the big minute and hour hands to slowly spin around the dial, and takes a bit to get to their intended locations.
6. Smallish dial is sunken into watch face and raised plastic bezel around crystal creates the feeling of looking into a deep well. Because of this, even less light gets to dial face and again, makes deciphering the tiny sub 1 mm markings challenging unless watch is under bright light.

Be very careful when re-sizing! Even if you are fairly well skilled at this and have professional style tools, including a pin remover, the Casio pins employ a minuscule sleeve style keeper that is placed inside the drilled tunnel of the inner/male side of the link. Super caution must be taken not to loose these itty bitty micro-sleeves when pushing out the pins. If lost, you will NOT be able to re-secure the pins. Unlike other brands such as Citizen who use flared ends on their link pins, Casio has what I would consider an inferior design and it is very unfriendly to novices. Not skilled? Take it to a jeweler.
As to setting up the watch, well let's just say first that you need very good eyesight and perhaps a magnifying glass. The instructions are just OK and unless you've been through similar drills before, you may need to repeat steps. Pushing button "A" for about 5 seconds and waiting to hear a 'beep' is a lesson in frustration tolerance and unless you have super hearing, forget the beep...unless you are holding the watch to your ear. However, after going through all the set up steps (more than once) the watch runs beautifully thereafter.Read more ›
