Excellent watch, first time g-shock owner, A+++
on December 11, 2011
I never knew much about g-shocks until I started looking into a durable watch for work. I work at a Florida prison and wanted something tough and functional, this is it. I prefer the negative display (black on black) from a stylish perspective and from a professional perspective for work. I dont really need the multiple time zones but its completely functional. The backlight display is effective and provides the right amount of light. Some have complained about not being able to see the time in different lighting and while I can see this it can be corrected with slight effort or the press of the backlight button. the two spheres on the watch act as countdown timers for the seconds and are basically useless because the watch tells time in numerical seconds but I guess its cool. the manual is fairly easy to follow. all other functions on the watch work but I dont really need them, primarily just use it to tell the time and date, end of story. The watch is comfortable and doesn't look that big on my wrist, it just looks like I care what watch I own. It also seems that the watch battery is projected to last for 7 years which is great. the wristband also has many notches to adjust for comfort. The face of the watch is recessed and seems pretty tough. It has been fine in the shower and he pool as well. I probably rambled but I dont think that there is much more that I can say about this watch. I LOVE THIS WATCH A+ CASIO!
