5.0 out of 5 stars Casio G Shock Rocks, June 15, 2005
Step aside Inspector Gadget - This watch takes the cake. From the advanced atomic calibration, to the fantastic solar charging, battery free operation. This watch is great. As for the overall style, and feel, it is typical G shock durable bulletproof construction. It is, however, significantly LIGHTER in weight than most predecessors. The band is typically large for ful lsized wrists. I truly cannot say one negative thing about it, except, the atomic calibration must occur with certain conditions, facing a window, outdoors, not near a building/train/etc. Doing a calibration every now and then will be just fine. Other than this, it is great. And, hey, I ain't Big Ben. Oh, and one more thing, this watch being solar must be exposed to the sun or light to charge. You can't have it hide under your sleeve or jacket-it won't charge. To top it, it doesnt require much sun or light to charge anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Watch - Excellent Quality, April 23, 2005
The 'Black Monster', as it is officially called by Seiko, is a fantastic, durable watch. Be advised that the size of it may look deceiving. It is a large watch - bulky and big. The band is large and can fit those who have a hard time with standard size watches. The face is magnified so it is very easy to read with the glow features. This watch puts any bulky Breitling or similar overpriced watches to shame, for the simple reason that the watch is a durable great looking watch and its better to save a few THOUSAND dollars.

I like that the bezel is off center so its comfortable and doesn't get in the way of your wrist.

Everything about this watch is durable. I never plan to wear it for scuba diving but the quality is there. It's obvious.

The only con is that I did not buy it sooner.

Make a smart purchase and save the money over those overpriced competitors. Get rich in 20 years putting that money away. Your Black Monster will probably still be working too.

Good Luck!
