About the watch:
The band is mostly a matte black and is Ion Plated stainless steel. The edges of the band and the case itself have more of a polished glossy finish you can't really tell by the picture and it picks up oil from your hands and smudges on those parts fairly easily. The band is 6/8" wide at its narrowest point and I'd like it to be about 1/8" wider. There are already a couple minor scratches in the band plating and it looks like eventually it could wear some of the black off from normal wear. The coloring isn't IN the metal so you see the silver of stainless steel if you get a scratch. I never had a black watch before so I didn't know if this is how it would be. I've only ever had stainless steel before and probably won't get a black one again.
I went to a jeweler to have them remove a couple links and he said the pins that hold them together were a unique type, harder to work with and a bit more fragile; one pin broke within a week and I had to use one of the leftover ones. He said if I needed more they have to be ordered from Casio directly and he couldn't just use any standard pins he had laying around.
The atomic clock and solar charging feature are really cool. As is the world clock which I set to UTC time because I use that in my job. The instruction booklet wasn't terribly easy to follow but once I got it all set I shouldn't have to change it again.Read more ›
Note that I work in an office and only worn the watch to work, and did not use it under difficult circumstances
Also, the alarm is very weak. Ten seconds of a light beep-beep and it's done. It has little chance of being heard, let alone waking me up from a sound sleep. It would be nice if I could pick between "subtle" and "real" alarms. A quiet beep while I'm out and about and a much louder, more insistent alarm for when I can't afford to miss the alarm.
Last, for the price, it should have a sapphire crystal rather than mineral. That's pretty standard for watches over a couple hundred bucks.
Other than those complaints, it's a very nice watch. It's substantial piece of gear, heavier than I was expecting. While it looks very "busy" at first glance, the depth makes it easy to focus on the various displays. I love having a watch that sets itself and being solar powered appeals to the geek in me. It looks nice, wears well, and I expect to get many years of use from it. I don't know if it's really worth $450-500 but I'm happy with it.
First of all, this is Casio, which I think most folks associate the brand with the G-Shock line of watches--digital display, reinforced or padded plastic casing, good time keeping, etc. I had spent a good amount of time understanding the Edifice and other specialized lines of Casio watches like the Pro Trek for example before buying this watch.
The most striking features of this watch for me are the "tough solar" rechargeable battery and the atomic clock synchronization feature. The World Time, 1000th second stop watch, and the alarm features are really just icing. The atomic clock sync and the self charging features represents minimal maintenance. Not having an automatic movement was a departure from the original plan, but this represents a more practical and less upkeep approach. Now if the watch runs years without issue, I would be extremely happy.
Having to read the manual like a choose your path story book was a new one for a watch manual. The four buttons on the watch are used for different operations per feature which can be daunting considering the buttons mean different things per context. After playing with the features for a couple of days, I think the controls are intuitive based on the layout but extraordinary for a watch. If you want a simple watch, this is probably not your watch.
The watch features Japanese quartz but is assembled in China. The watch's bracelet clasp is easy to operate. The finish on the watch is fine and without any hint of imperfection.Read more ›
