I ordered this watch a few days ago, when I got it, I fell completely in love with it. This watch has a very nice face, it fits nice on my wrist, and all the functions works great. The only thing I can say that I don't like about this watch, is the light system. It's not really bright and can be difficult to see at night. Besides that, still a very nice watch.

I bought this watch after my manger at work had a similar model (all black one) I thought it was the toughest looking watch so I went online to look for it and I stumbled on this golden one. Let me tell you the pictures do not do it justice you have to see and hold this thing to admire its beauty. I was on the edge about purchasing this because of some reviews stating that if you wanted to tell the time it wasn't possible. Furthermore, the illuminator on the watch doesn't work and its almost imposible to tell time in the dark. Well for me I didn't come across any of those problems. Perhaps I got a newer (v.2014) model or with a better illuminator. Lets the get the bad out of the way. If you are buying this watch for the purpose of telling time with the analog hands... look somewhere else because its almost impossible to tell time with the analog hands. The hands completely blend in to get background of the watch. When the hands get to 35-40 minutes and 50-55 forget it its imposible to tell the time on the dot. Now that being said the digital time is perfect and there is no problem there a few people said in the reviews that its hard to tell time, but it really isn't. You just have to move your wrist a little and the shine inside the watch will make it much easier to tell time, but even without doing that its still eligible. As for the illuminator what I believe people are doing wrong is they aren't changing the setting on the phone. It comes default 1.5 seconds for the illuminator, but it can be easily changed to 3 seconds and thats more than enough time to catch the time. I will include a picture of the watch with the illuminator on in the dark. I tried my best for the camera to focus. The phone comes with a lot of features like: World time, timer, 4 alarms. Its also "20BAR"(highest resistance) which to Casio means its EVERYTHING proof: hand washing, rain, water activities, wind surfing and sky diving. The watch is a real eye candy you will get a lot of complements and people staring at your wrist. The material is rugged, touch plastic but, extremely durable yet light it does not feel cheap what so ever! Also the over all gloss finish is the icing on the cake its a really nice all around any occasion watch.

Just got this one at Macys and I was surprised I found it. Supposedly this is a limited edition so I had to grab it. I'm a huge G Shock collector and the pictures on Amazon doesn't do it justice. Many of my G Shocks are the 6900's, and I'd say the 6900's are great when dressed casual. This particular watch is more for dressing up, basically wearing a nice button up shirt and slacks. However, I will still rock this watch when I'm in a t shirt and jeans or shorts..i don't care. Bottom line - great looking watch and like all G Shocks, they are durable.

I have had this watch for about 2 weeks now and i love it. very durable, stays firm on the wrist and has a very intrecit face. the analog hands combinded with the digital read out make it a great piece for style and functionality. Has digital time and date displa, as well as incorperating a stopwatch and backlight.
The Backlight is really the only complaint i have had about this model. it has an orange backlight that comes on for maybe 2 sec max if you press it. or it can stay on for 3 or so if you hold it. All the light illuminates from the bottom of the face and makes it fairly difficult to read in a low light setting. Defeating the purpose of the light in the first place.

This watch looks great, feels light on the wrist and cab take a beating.
The back light is pretty useless though but besides that this is a great product

I bought this watch from Macy's (I have to try on a watch before I buy). I'm a fan of G-Shocks and this one is just beautiful. It's pretty big in size, but that's just the way I like it. I'm constantly complemented on it. Only drawbacks, the light is hardly worth it (very dim) and the design of the hands means that they are very hard to read, even when it's light. Don't expect to just be able to glance at it and tell the time (hmmm, to be honest, that's a pretty bad design flaw for a watch) ..
Having said that, it's a beautiful looking watch and will look great on your wrist.

decent price, quick delivery. First off this is a awesome and beautiful looking watch, it will get you compliments. My warning to all is that you should realize its not the most practical, I purchased this as my everyday work watch, expecting form and most of all function, I thought that black was more of a flat or satin, not the high gloss that it is (little to flashy and shows every spec of dust and marks)
most frustrating is a design flaw, the hands are black and so is most of the background making it very diffucult to read the analog clock.
the digital is not much better especially in low light and the light is almost useless. While its not a bad watch I just want to make sure that you get something that fits your purpose, it is a gshock and I will be getting another one that better suites my needs

I first saw this watch on Amazon and the price fluctuated a lot from over 200 down to around 150, I went to the G-Shock website and they definitely have this same watch for $150 which they offer in other stores. I went right to Macy's on my lunch break and purchased the watch. It is absolutely amazing, it is lightweight in comparison to the great size (I prefer big watches), not too bulky and looks great with a casual look. The shiny band mixed with the shiny gold face is a perfect match. The only issue I have is the same as pretty much every one else...it's very difficult to see anything but the digital time at night and that hardly shows up too. The light is a nice orange color but it hardly lights up the time...it catches the gold tone of the inside beautifully and catches everyone's eye but if you wanna know the time you may have to pull your phone out and check it. Its not HORRIBLE but it does lack in that area and I think they should change that. There is another type of this watch that doesnt have the analog hands but it lights up the time real nicely with a lighter colored almost white light. All in all I love this watch I have worn it everyday since I bought it (about 4 days ago) and have already had many compliments and someone trying to buy it off of me and very surprised at the price when I told them to just buy one themselves with the amount that they were offering me...I will be purchasing several more I am really diggin the white one. This is a great watch with great functions and it looks reeeaaally nice.

I REALLY like the look of it. Catches peoples attention right away. However as other people have stated once the hands get into the 9 o'clock position its really hard to read them. The design is awesome just a little impractical.

I tried this watch in Nordstrom a it looked nice but when I looked for the hands of the watch it's like "Where's Waldo". It has a shiny gold face and shiny gold hands with a busy background. I had to focus on the digital time because it was taking so long to find the hands. There are different versions of this same watch that I've seen that are very readable like the blue face and the black face versions. I noticed that G Shock does this a lot they sacrifice function and useability for the style. Another problem is that it looks like the light on the watch only shines from the bottom so it's even harder to see what time it is at night, They could at least make the hands glow in the dark to make it easier to tell the time in darker areas.
