The Best Watch, PERIOD!!!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio Men's WVA430J-1 Waveceptor Solar Atomic Ana-Digi Sport Watch (Watch)If you are interested in purchasing a Solar Powered Atomic Watch, then this is the watch of your dreams. I simply love this watch!!
Over the course of time, I have owned many watches, but this one by far is a keeper. I love it so much, that I am going to purchase another one as a backup.
I hadn't worn a watch for quite some time, so when I received my new watch, I accidentially bumped into the door latch as I was turning and put a scratch on the black outer coating of my new watch. I was very upset with myself, but it was my own fault. Low and behold after a few days, the scratch disappeared and is no longer visible. Apparently the outer epoxy type material helps keep the watch semi indestructable.
The accuracy is amazing, and once I reached HIGH on the battery charge, any normal light exposure (indoors or out) will keep the battery charged. Here is a tip for you, if you have a compact flourescent desk lamp, let the watch soak up all that light for about one to two hours. Once it reaches it's HIGH battery state, then you have absolutely no worries about ever losing battery power. Just make certain that you fully charge up the battery with as much light as possible until it reads HI on the display.
As far as comfort goes, the watch is very lightweight, and it's a joy to wear. Casio definately did a great job when they engineered the size, shape, look, and feel of this watch.
Bottom line, if you want to purchase a Solar Powered Atomic Watch, AND you want it to definately be a keeper for a vey long time, then invest in this watch. It took me about a two months of research to finally decide on this particular model, and boy am I glad I pulled the trigger and bought it.
I would easily give this watch TEN STARS, but unfortunately I am limited to FIVE STARS in this review. If you are on the fence like I was, JUST DO IT. You will be so glad you did.
