4.0 out of 5 stars GA-100MC-1A, good but not great.
Just bought this after going over the Casio watches online multiple times. Agree with the previous poster about the 'not as white as the ad' digital readouts for the date and day readouts. This is very disappointing. What also is hard to understand about Casio, is that the clock arms do not have luminous coating to glow in the dark. The hour stations glow, but not the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice watch...
but not without flaws.

My biggest complaint is the nighttime viewing.

Why would they not put any glow-paint on the hands. There glowing elements on the hour marks around the dial, but what does that accomplish without having anything glowing on the hands? That makes it impossible to check the time without hitting the light. Why put glow-paint on the...

4.0 out of 5 stars GA-100MC-1A, good but not great., December 4, 2013
This review is from: Casio G Shock Black Dial Nylon Strap Mens Watch GA100MC-1ACR (Watch)
Just bought this after going over the Casio watches online multiple times. Agree with the previous poster about the 'not as white as the ad' digital readouts for the date and day readouts. This is very disappointing. What also is hard to understand about Casio, is that the clock arms do not have luminous coating to glow in the dark. The hour stations glow, but not the arms? If this is supposed to be a 'military' style watch, they missed the mark on that feature. How much could it cost to add that coating. Other G-Shocks have it. Come on Casio!!

4.0 out of 5 stars It coulda been one of Casio's best, November 8, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio G Shock Black Dial Nylon Strap Mens Watch GA100MC-1ACR (Watch)
I am annoyed. While browsing Casio's website I spotted this watch an bought it for two reasons - first, I wanted the cloth wrist band (which is great) and second, I saw the lower LCD windows had white lettering. And there's the rub. That appears to be photoshopped by Casio. As others have noted on similar models of this watch style, the lower LCD windows are a black background with a gray - NOT - white letter/numbering. The black/gray makes them virtually impossible to read in low light, and even in normal light, at certain angles, you can't see the display very well. Overall, I still like the watch, and I've decided to keep it despite what amounts to what I feel is false advertising by Casio for making those lower LCD displays look much brighter than they actually are.

Now if Casio did make this watch with white alpha/numerals down below, this would be a kick-posterior watch. I am annoyed enough that I think I will complain to them. Who knows - maybe somebody will listen. And one more addition would have made this watch 'perfect' at least for me - if it were an atomic watch.

On the strap - I also own a G-Shock pathfinder with the plastic strap. This cloth strap is great, actually one of the best cloth straps on a watch I've owned - it's very comfortable and doesn't have that sticky/icky feel plastic does. Any more G-Shocks in my future - the cloth strap is a must have.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's big!, January 15, 2014

OK, just to be fair, this is a great watch, but the dial is quite large and "thick"...just want to be up front about that. The functions of this watch or really great, and fairly easy to setup with the included guide. Just don't throw it away, because I'm not sure you can figure it out without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars solid good looking watch, June 14, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio G Shock Black Dial Nylon Strap Mens Watch GA100MC-1ACR (Watch)
I was pleasantly surprised by the G-Shock GA-100MC-1ACR. I find it easy to read without my glasses. The functions and and setting are fairly intuitive. I just spent a week in Orlando in hot humid weather and found the watch comfortable. I find the nylon band more comfortable in hot weather than a rubber strap. Other reviewers observations that the date and stopwatch functions are impossible to use in low light are spot on, but this does not affect my use. This is a solid, functional and rugged watch with good looks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really hard to find a better looking or a tougher man's watch......, May 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio G Shock Black Dial Nylon Strap Mens Watch GA100MC-1ACR (Watch)
Casio ,what were you thinking?-----Everything about this watch is great-----except-----which I really don't understand, or maybe I am just missing the Idea----in the dark, you can get the hour dots to glow really well ---but---, the hour and minute hand are totally dark--actually totally useless--however the amber led night lite works great but battery life shortens every time you use it------other than that, the watch has killer looks and is awesome ,the watch band is first class and the watch keeps perfect time. I gave this watch a 4 and not a 5 rating because I felt that for a very ,very ,very little ,little ,little effort , Casio could of made the hour and minute hand glow.....like the hour dots glow........my husband loves this watch....

5.0 out of 5 stars Casio did it again, July 14, 2014

This review is from: Casio G Shock Black Dial Nylon Strap Mens Watch GA100MC-1ACR (Watch)
This watch is utterly and completely bad ass. The band is durable and comfortable. The display is rugged and large with a myriad of functionality. A great addition to my collection. Backlight could be better, but you don't buy a watch for the damn back light. Great buy, great value. Well done, again, Casio!
