Casio

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.

    Build:
    Mostly steel -- wrist band and on the front and back of the watch piece. Most of the watch casing is plastic, with a front steel cover and and on the back, a steel plate(behind it is the battery). The bezel or the outer front ring of the watch doesn't turn like some watches do. The wristband is a two button release, so you push in both sides of the clasp to release the wristband. Watch face is made of hardened mineral, and has not scratched yet, and hopefully not. The mineral is slightly concave, so it bulges out slightly.

    Aesthetics:
    I have grabbed people's attention, friends and strangers, and they comment on the great looks of it. In my own opinion, I also say the watch has the "prestige" look. The only bad is the plastic casing, but it is usually doesn't grab your eye at first look.

    Features:
    Atomic Time
    It features atomic time in both analog and digital, and it has done its job properly. Every day at 12 a.m., it will sync with the the nearest by ground stations (NOT satellites as I mistakenly stated thanks to a response to my review) to keep the time updated. Most of the time it will sync successfully in Houston, but when I traveled to Tokyo or various sections of China or Taiwan, it will not always sync successfully. My guess is that there are dead spots around the globe, and I am pretty sure within the States too. Another great thing to the atomic time feature is that it will take care of your daylight saving time changes. Set it to "A" or auto-DST mode, and it will automatically set the correct time in your current location. No more guessing the time when traveling. The date is also automatically set for you, whether in leap year or whatever. Both the analog and digital time sync together.

    Nice watch. Save yourself the trouble of trying to read the included instructions and download the manual for module 3311/5052 from Casio's website. The module number is also on the back side of the body. No problems synchronizing time settings by setting the watch in the window as directed by the instructions at a distance of ~1,200 miles from Fort Collins, CO. Battery charge has remained on "HIGH" for two months after an initial charging in the window sill on the afternoon of purchase. Unless you have the specific tools, take it to someone who does to re-size the band. Afterglow feature lights up the digital portion of the face only, not the entire watch face. Non-metallic enough to go through airport TSA while still on wrist and not set off the alarm. Purchased from Amazon with free shipping. Would buy again if needed.

    Several years ago, I purchased a black, plastic-band Casio watch that automatically synchronizes the date/time. It ran on solar power, so there was never a battery to replace.

    Recently, I decided I was a grownup and needed something that was more professional looking. I was looking for a watch that had analog hands, but still had the atomic synchronization and solar recharging. I was surprised very few watches fit the bill. To my knowledge, only Casio makes watches that have atomic clock synchronization. I laugh at people with expensive "precision time instruments." My watch will be accurate to within 3 or 4 seconds for the life of the watch because it synchronizes every day. I don't care how precise your watch is, it will never measure up to mine.

    The WVA470DJ-1ACF is a nice looking watch that provides all the functionality I was looking for.

    Just remember, this watch has a metal band. You will need to get the watch sized to your wrist. After spending an hour trying to remove the pins and size it myself, I decided to take it to the watch kiosk at the mall. It was well worth the $10 fee, since the job required special tools and a lot of patience.

    Well, I finally took the plunge and got this waveceptor watch. For starters, it is a very nice, elegant, large size watch (definitively not for you if you have small wrists). The metal finishing in the body and the buttons is impecable. The only flaw is the gray plastic underneath the metal faceplate; however, this makes the watch lighter and I'm pretty sure non-metallic enough to go through metal detectors without waking up the guards (have yet to test this, though).
    As for the features, the light-rechargable battery works well, you still need to be careful not to cover it all the time with sleeves (besides, you want to show it off all the time, right?). The atomic clock signal sync works like a charm. Just follow the instructions for proper reception and, voilá! Extreme time accuracy without the price tag of a Rolex. Bottom line, a looker-kind of watch for the hardcore techie.

    Update Nov 10/2012: I've had this beauty for over 3 years now. The sync never fails, every morning at around 4:00 AM, here in the Vancouver area (some 1,100 miles away from Ft. Collins, CO, the location of the atomic clock radio transmission). It seems to work better closer to a window, but mind you, it's never too close (at least 3 m away).

    The battery seems to be doing fine. It stays of HIGH most of the year, dropping to MID level for 2-3 months, normally between January and March. Again, it is critical trying to wear the watch uncovered as much as possible, also avoiding to store it inside a drawer, away from any source of light.

    The band is OK, although I've had a couple of incidents with some pins getting a tad loose, but they only needed re-positioning and they were secured again.
