5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect looks and design, July 2, 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Let me first start off by saying this is one of the best pieces released by Casio in the G-shock series.

It is my first G-shock and I couldn't be more pleased.

I was searching for a nice looking G-shock for almost a month before I came across this watch and there was not another second I wasted to order this. The shipping was super fast and this watch didn't disappoint a bit.

Looks: Stunning watch. Has the sturdy G-shock military look to it as well as the dark Colors and the design gives it a sophisticated look. This watch can go well on all occasions (office, sports, fancy dinners etc.). I should though mention that the piece I got did not have the light-bluish color that is shown in the picture. Instead it is slightly greyish which by the way looks quite cool.
The size of the watch is perfect. It is not as big as the specifications make it sound. I have medium sized wrists and it looks great. Looking at the size I can safely say that it will look fine on slightly smaller wrists as well.

Built: This is a solidly built watch as you would expect from a G-shock. This is a very light watch which was a pleasant surprise. The wrist band is plastic and has teeth on the underside of it which keeps the band loop in place.

Features: This watch has all the features that you expect from a normal G-shock. I don't think it has the moon phases and stuff that is coming with some of the new G-shocks but I don't need that anyway. One thing I wish was to have solar battery. Unfortunately this has a normal battery which runs up to 2 years according to the manual.

CON: The only issue with this watch is the back-light. It is actually a bunch of LEDs (edit below) around the dial that light up. This will only illuminate the analog part of the watch, so you can easily see the time. But the digital part is INVISIBLE until you shine a flashlight directly into it. Now, this could be a major issue for many, but for me it is not really a big deal.

---EDIT: As one of the readers pointed out, it is actually only 1 LED light at 6 o'clock position which lights up. The light though reflects across the different chrome/steel hour markers which can give the illusion that it has small LEDs all around.

Over all I just love this watch. The looks blew me away, the price is decent, and the built is a perfect. Features are nothing over the top but has almost all the ones you would expect. I believe this will be one of the most popular G-shocks in the future. If you are planning to buy a G-shock other than this one, think twice :)

"a bunch of LEDs" mine only has one amber colored light at the 6 O'clock position.

Thanks Jason for pointing it out. On closer look I also see that it is a single LED at 6 o'clock.
