With the launch of its first watch in November 1974, Casio entered the wristwatch market at a time when the watch industry had just discovered digital technology. As a company with cutting-edge electronic technology developed for pocket calculators, Casio entered this field confident that it could develop timepieces that would lead the market.
Today, Casio is focusing its efforts on solar-powered radio-controlled watches: the built-in solar battery eliminates the nuisance of replacing batteries, atomic timekeeping means the users never have to reset the time. Recently, Casio launched a series of Bluetooth watches that sync to the users cell phone to automatically update the time. Casio is always moving time forward.

Beautiful and fine quality finish
Proper thick size for man's hand.
Truly front metal chrome casing and resin bezel
Large digital display fonts at center.
Nice Inverted of EL (electro-luminescence) at digital display time. So it works better contrast in the dark (back-light) or daylight. Best energy conservation for longer battery life.
Shorter wrist strap band length.Wondering how to strap comfort for someone with larger hand wrist
No other panel color option
Bezel scale marking is only in 0-60 (seconds/ minutes). There is no hour numbers
Bottom line, the eyes looking perspective of analog and digital information really works for me. I could catch up both readings into inference faster compared to other model, lower digital display.. and it is a nice and modern-look watch
Thank you Amazon for expedited 3-days international shipping at lower cost charged.
The only drawback for me is the extremely thin resin band, which being very confortable, does not look long lasting. I hope I can find replacements in the future.
Anyway, great watch! My search is over...
(I must say that this search would have been much easier if I had the chance to try these watches in a local store before buying, but none of these models were available where I live.)
Update 26/Oct/2009: After 2 years of almost continuous use, the battery still works and the resin band, though not looking like new anymore, has no sign of deterioration. I was wrong thinking that it would break easily. Great watch!
Update July 2010: the battery refuses to die... the resin band has no sign of cracks... so what can I say? The backlight is dimmer though, so I am buying a new one soon. I definitively recommend it.
Update November 2011: I did get a new one last year as announced (and give the old one away to a nephew) and it is as good as the previous one. One year with no sign of deterioration, not even a scratch and the band looks in perfect condition... I will definitively keep buying them every 3 years... Really happy with it.
Update January 2015: Well, after buying 6 of these watches since 2007, I am not doing it anymore. The watch is still one of the best in terms of size, design and features, but something changed in the manufacturing of the case, and my last 4 have all died by breaking off. The first two I gave them away when the battery was about to die and the plastic dial window got too scratched. But then each of the next 4 broke off in the same place: the part of the case where the band spring loaded pin attaches. The case is plastic (even on the one with metal band that I tried too) and the band holding pin is inserted in the case on two little holes. These holes are near the case surface and the plastic around brakes and the spring loaded pin comes loose. I lost one watch this way, the other 3 fell on the floor at home... This happened after about a year of use of each one, and without applying any force, so I suspect that the plastic used on the later versions is somehow affected by sweat and gets weaker. If Casio would place a metal insert in this part of the case to reinforce it where the band pins are inserted, then this problem would be solved. Until then, I am moving to Timex T5K4029J... more expensive but I hope longer lasting.... What a pity, I take away one star... :-(
I had a simple Casio analog watch with push button backlight, and I loved it. Unfortunately, it seems to have stopped functioning after only a year or so. It was very inexpensive but they no longer sell it. This watch is priced about the same and I was worried about it for several reasons. It seemed to have too many buttons and functions, causing confusion, and it's a bit taller than my old watch. I can report that my worries were mostly unfounded. The instructions are very easy to follow and, once programmed, there is very little most people will have to remember.
I have no intention of using this watch as an alarm, stopwatch or anything other than to tell time and light up when I need it. It does those things quite well. It also has one more very cool feature. By pushing one button, you can set the back light to go on whenever you lift your wrist and look at it. That setting lasts up to six hours or until you cancel it, to save battery life. I set it before going to spin class and then only need one hand to check the time in the dark. Really nice. Interesting display. The hands do not light. Instead, the digital display lights up behind the hands. But the digital display is fairly easy to read, even for those of us who normally need reading glasses. Also, it takes one simple adjustment to toggle between daylight and standard time, eliminating the need for resetting the digital time. A nice touch.
The watch is a bit rounder on top than I might have preferred, but really not to big for my smallish wrists. The good trade off is that it is more water resistant, and that's very nice. I also think it has a nice appearance that makes it worth at least double the price. Overall, a good purchase and I would recommend it.
One more thing. If you are worried that the buttons are confusing, or you won't have the instructions when you need them, just do what I did. Make notes on your smartphone about the functions you think you will need, and refer to those when you need help.
