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.

The watch keeps very good time. The chronograph feature is simple to use - by that I mean, it's intuitive so no manual is required. The alarm function is another matter. Crack the book or you're going to be frustrated. Like some of their other alarm watches, the value of this feature is limited. If you get up every day at 6:00 AM, you have to set the alarm every day. Silly idea.
Overall, this is a bargain for what seems to be a beautiful, well made watch from one of the best names in the business.
The chronograph feature works well and can do splits, but it means that the large second hand does not tell time. There is a separate, tiny subdial that shows a 1 Hz second hand. I wish the main dial would also serve as a 5 Hz second hand in other than chronograph mode. For the reviewers complaining about the dial alignment -- it is adjustable in the time-setting mode. The manual explains it poorly, but you can adjust the offset of the minute and second hands.
The alarm is much too quite to wake me and requires daily setting; instead I use the alarm subdial as a second timezone to display GMT.
For starters, the most important feature of any good watch is the ability to tell time. Unlike several other watches I own in this price range, the Seiko excells here. I can't provide exact measurements because the time variance has been that low, on the order of perhaps seconds per month.
When it comes to watches in this price range, most of them are steel and as a result MUCH heavier. The titanium band and casing result in a very light watch, it almost feels like it's not even there.
Yet having work my watch during some grueling long distance runs as well as carpentry work, I can honestly say this watch is very durable. I have had the misfortune to have this watch smacked against by others, and while I do have one small scratch on the bezel it is minimal in light of how long I've had this watch.
The chronograph feature of the watch works nicely. I consider it an extra, because it's not the primary reason I would have bought this watch. It will certainly do in a pinch, but I suppose heavy chronograph users might need more intervals than this provides.
I personally like the black face, but if you need a white face the ...Read more ›
The watch is not particularly lightweight if you're used to plastic- or leather-banded timepieces. I tried a few other Ti Seikos at department stores and they were much lighter and thinner. Several times a day I notice the second hand has stopped because the second timer button hits something (my wrist?). However, a few positive surprises: the main second hand moves several times per second, giving it the look of near-continuous movement. The glow-in-the-dark hands seem quite bright. Sometimes I notice the glow, even just in a dim room.
Highly recommended for a $100 watch that can pass off as a $300 watch. If you can't handle scratches, go for a heavier (and pricier) sapphire crystal watch.
