5.0 out of 5 stars Great piece of kit, January 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio Men's GW-9400-1CR "Master of G" Stainless Steel Solar Watch (Watch)
I've had the watch for a few weeks now and I love it. This is my fifth Gshock and it's my favorite by a mile. The look, feel and functionality are fantastic.

It's definitely a big watch - bigger than the GWM5610-1 but not quite as large as the King of G-Shock. It has a very rugged look. Great for hiking or running around town.

As others have noted, it is solidly built and the buttons are super easy to push relative my Mudman.

The display is clear and not too cluttered. The compass setting is really easy to use, but the altitude and barometric pressure take a little getting used to.

It's a relatively pricey G-Shock, but worth the cost. And, it may be the last G-Shock you ever buy since it has almost every feature out there (if only it has the phases of the moon and perhaps a the tide readings).

Suggestion: Read the manual - this watch is a bit trickier than other G-Shocks. While clicking through the modes is simple and very much the traditional G-Shock format (pushing the bottom left button), there are so many features to the watch that you've got to read the little booklet to be able to utilize them all.

Hi do you know if the American version has the metal strap KEEPER or rubber one ? I have heard that when you wear the watch it slides down because it's heavier and you end up with the strap flapping around.
