Sturdily built watch and wrist band. Extremely accurate (compares very favorably with my Swiss made watch costing much, much more) BUT what is supposed to make this an aviator watch is the circular slide rule (used by me to compute ground speeds) and on this watch is totally useless!! One scale is is on the outside of the dial face and adjustable, as it should be, the other is under the crystal, and has no business whatsover of being there. This mis-arrangement of scales always presents a very large parallax error, making calculations absolutely totally impossible to perform. If you want to use this feature -DO NOT BUY THIS WATCH!

I recently bought this watch because my old watch was pretty much gone. I was initially drawn to the classy design that is complex yet not crowded, a look that I really like personally. Watch fits perfectly after I removed a few links, which was rather difficult. I have a fairly large wrist and had to adjust the clasp to its smallest setting and remove two links, so be prepared. I was using a tack and an ink pen to remove the link pins so that's probably why it was difficult. Which dial was which did befuddle me a bit but I finally figured out that the larger second hand was actually the one for the stopwatch, not the smaller top dial. Overall great watch and I really like how it fits my wrist. The case is big enough to not feel puny yet thin enough to not feel bulky. Solid feeling stainless construction is a plus. The sliding bezel is very nice and smooth, doesn't click like most watches... That could be a positive or negative, depends on one's tastes, personally it didn't really matter to me. The bezel does stay in place well even without clicks. Can't really think of anything else to write, overall great watch, great price, and I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

**Update**

I actually just purchased my second Aviator just the other day because mine was broken by an accident where the original watch got pulled off of my wrist rather violently, bending the band and rendering it inoperable. This was no fault of the watch and I think one would be hard pressed to find a watch that wouldn't have broken in the instance. I just wanted to let everyone know that this watch is still a great buy! You can beat the price and over a year and half later the original is still ticking just fine. It feels great to have my watch back!

PS - I would have sent the original to get fixed but it made more sense to just buy a new one instead of paying roughly $30 for the old one to be fixed.

It keeps time like its an atomic clock. I work in transportation, and like to keep my watches within 5 sec of the true time that I get from my atomic watch. I didnt have to touch my casio, I think, for half a year. Not to bad..

Looks better than what you see in the picture. I like the feeling that it is quite heavy. The pressing the stop watch button felt cheap. Not easy to see the time at night.

Like everyone keeps saying, the pictures do not do this watch justice! For $50 this is a beautiful watch, I have uploaded 5 additional pictures to try and display how good this watch really looks. The chronograph works perfectly on this watch and I guarantee you that you will not find another for this price. The only real fault I could find in this watch is how hard it is to size the bracelet (hence the -1 star). I can usually size this type of band on my own but the pins on this watch were incredibly hard to take out. After spending hours to no avail trying to size it I finally took it to a watch store to be sized and it even broke their tool! Anyway I finally got it sized on my own and let me tell you once it's on your wrist you don't want to take it off. All in all, despite that one minor problem for $50 you literally cannot beat the looks and functionality of this watch.

The watch itself is beautiful for what I payed. As a professional EMT I needed a watch that has the ability to tell me on scene elapsed time while simultaneously being able to use the second had to take vital signs. I have been using this watch for a month and have not been let down. The latch mechanism is strong and gives the impression it will last for a few years. The band is quality and does not pull hair out of my wrist. The function of the chronometer is adequate; however, I am unhappy with the small hash marks on the second, minute and hour feature making me stare at my watch face for an extra few seconds. The time is accurate and has not needed any adjustment since the first time I set it. As far as the aviator slide rule, I caution that its use is difficult in low light conditions. As a matter of fact the rest of the watch is difficult if not impossible to use at night without an external light source. The glow material in the hash marks around the watch stays "charged" for a short period of time (hour) and then fades to nothing. On the whole this watch is working as expected and I am satisfied with my purchase; however, I will be saving my pennies to buy a better engineered one next year. Until then I am satiated with the features this value watch has to offer.

I've had this watch for a couple of months now and it has really met (or exceeded) my expectations. It has a really nice overall weight and "feel" and (so far) keeps good time.

The band was quite large, so I had to remove several links. There were no instructions in the box on how to do so, but a quick Google search provided the help that I needed.

Some might consider the face to be a little cluttered and it would be nice to have a calendar function. I knew that it didn't when I ordered it, so I certainly can't fault the watch.

I would recommend this watch to anyone looking for a timepiece in this price range. FYI... I also purchased the Casio Men's Sea Analog Illuminator Dual LED Dive Watch #MDV102-1AV and I am glad that I did. I now have two distinctly different watches that can be worn alternately, depending on the situation.

The watch looks very nice. I appreciate the fact that it does not tick loudly. I'm not sure how I feel about the larger orange hand being the stop watch seconds instead of current time seconds, but that's not so bad. Having the slide rule is cool, but it is not scaled correctly. According to my watch, 5x5 = 24.5. Plus the inner scale is too hard to read, especially on the 6 o'clock side of the watch. All-in-all I like the watch; the pros and the price outweigh the cons.

This is a great looking watch. Only downfall is that the log scales aren't quite right for the slide rule (ex. 3.0 x 3.0 yields 8.9). But not much of a problem since most of the people interested in this watch won't be using it as a calculator.

This is very good and accurate watch. although the description says +-1 sec difference every month on an average, it has been very accurate so far for me. no time difference at all and trust me i have used in wisconsin winter. :)
the stopwatch click switches are little creeky but thats alrite as per me. nothing to be really bothered about.
there is another small problem because of which i gave it a 4 star and not 5 is the second hand is a very small one and not placed on the main dial. the main dial second hand is used for stopwatch whereas the second hand is one of the smaller secondary dials. it becomes confusing at time.
other than that there is absolutely no problem. feels really good on wrist. not heavy at all.
