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.

    If you want a watch that's good looking and always dead-accurate to the split second without any adjustments, you won't go wrong with this one.
    Here are a few observations:
    It's lightweight. It weighs about half as much as the other watches I own with stainless steel wristbands, making it very comfortable to wear. The face is large with a simple clean design, making it easy to read. I do need my reading glasses for the digital display.
    It's nice looking and goes with just about any kind of outfit from casual to dressy. I wouldn't wear it to the beach or with a tuxedo, but it looks pretty good with just about anything between those extremes. In the display photo, it appears to have a blue-gray face, mine is gray with a faint hint of violet rather than blue. When you look at it you basically see a gray face, but it's a warmer gray than it appears on the web. I think the real thing looks better than the picture.
    It's pretty easy to set up. If you've ever set a digital watch, this isn't much different. The main difference is that you have to set the time zone you're in for the correct hour to be displayed. Once that's done, you don't have to worry about it again unless you are traveling and want to change it to different time zones. It's not a difficult procedure. One thing I really like a lot is the watch automatically resetting itself for daylight savings time! Twice a year I have to go through the tedious ritual of changing all of the clocks and watches around the house. It's nice having one wristwatch I don't have to touch. The radio controlled timekeeping works like a charm. The only potential drawback would be traveling outside the range limit of the atomic radio signal. If you are a U.S. customer, the signal range is nearly all of North America.

    I am now on my 3rd one of these. I love the watch, as the solar face keeps the watch charged well, the radio-setting feature works well almost all the time (except when travelling overseas), the controls are reasonably intuitive, and it looks good (at first). Sadly, there is a bad flaw in the case design which makes me keep having to buy new ones every so often. The end of the watch where the stainless-steel band attaches, which LOOKS like it is stainless steel, is not really metal at is actually grey plastic with a cheap silver paint on it. It looks excellent for a few months, and then it invariably starts peeling. On the first watch, I thought perhaps I just had a bad one, but the second one I bought, and now the third have all done the same thing. It is really a shame, because otherwise I really like everything about this watch. In case you are wondering, I'm an office worker, so it isn't like there is anything unusual about the way I treat the case...the paint just keeps coming off from normal wear from my shirt-sleeve. Bottom line: if you don't care what it looks like after a few months, this is a great watch, I have no complaints, but if you don't want to look like you are wearing an old, cheap, plastic-case watch, then avoid this model. I like it enough that I will probably buy another, and just treat it like a disposable, but then again as I type this I'm wondering if I should just go with a battery-powered WaveCeptor instead of paying extra for the solar feature, since the case never lasts past where the first battery would anyway, and those are about half the price of these...

    I've had this watch for a couple of weeks now and I can't recommend it enough. It is a handsome looking watch with a nice grey face (with a slight blue tint). I've had other Tough Solar, Waveceptor watches from Casio and they are great. They are durable, never needs batteries, and set themselves to the atomic clock. I wanted an analog watch with these features for a reasonable price and this was it. I've read reviews about the watch prior to purchase and there were 2 complaints that stood out. One was about how easily the face scratched. The other was that the band was large and that it was not easily adjustable.

    To counter the ease of scratching the watch face, some reviewers suggested getting Zagg's Invisible Shield to protect it ([...]). The optimal size, however, was not immediately apparent. Someone suggested using 43mm which is the width of the entire watch, but that seemed too large to me. I wanted the protective film to cover the glass portion of the watch face only. I eventually ordered the 32mm that fits perfectly over the front glass. The application of the Invisible Shield puts a Moiré-like pattern over the glass. I like the effect. I think it makes the watch more distinctive.

    Fresh out of the box, the watchband was too large for me as well. It was, however, not very difficult adjusting this by myself. There are 7 links in the band that has small arrow symbols stamped on the back. These are the links that can be removed. You can apply a thin rod-like tool (such as a small screwdriver), on the pins connecting the links, and gently push or tap it using something like a small hammer (I used a pair of pliers) IN THE DIRECTION OF THE ARROW.
