good job G-Shock,
This review is from: Casio Men's GW3000B-1ACR G-Shock Solar Power Black With Orange Dial Watch (Watch)
I purchased this watch just a few days ago. Reason? Larger analog G-Shock, Multiband, and Solar with great look and features. I've been waiting for this type of design from G-Shock for a long time. Thank you.
The watch is very light and G-Shock durable. It definitely has the look of a precise aviation instrument. Just like any precise and quality instrument it takes a little bit of time to learn to operate it and get used to the functions. I personally like that the watch does not have any LED backlight. There is no need for it. I must disagree with the previous review. The luminous hands are visible throughout the night. Not as bright as for example Luminox watches, but bright enough to see what time it is.
The stopwatch function is plenty sufficient. If you need a stopwatch up to 24 hours, then you will probably get a different watch for a lot more $$$ and probably not as durable.
The worldtime function works great....can't complain. I personally don't have much use for the 24-hour display, but don't mind it. It's probably useful for those who are not familiar with the 24-hour time.
Overall, this watch represents several precise functions in a small analog package. If you like sporty analog design and looking for a superb accuracy, you cannot go wrong with this time piece. Strongly recommend!

It's not supposed to be as bright as a Luminox! Know your watches and facts. Luminox uses tritium tubes, not lume paint! Gesh

I'm sure he didn't know that luminox used tritium tubes. There everyone makes mistakes even you. I will agree with him with the Casio G-Shock. This G-Shock is a lot more durable then luminox. Really both watches are very well made.
