Introducing the new large case Aviation concept watch with a 1/100-second chronograph designed to keep accurate time even under the stresses of high G forces that occur during air racing. Under in-flight conditions of centrifugal force, this full-function analog timepiece performs with extreme accuracy, reaching new heights with Tough Movement—an automatic function to correct hand position—which enhances its shock-resistant structure. A resin band meets a cockpit-like frame dial structure with orange accents and 3D indexes, allowing for easy recognition of vital information. With a self-charging Tough Solar power system, there’s no battery changing and its Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping receives time calibration signals from up to 6 transmission stations worldwide. Casio’s tests confirm the durability of the 1/100 Second Stopwatch and other features to function normally in a merciless environment far surpassing the 12G attained in air racing and the 5G in F1 racing.
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.

The price is a little expensive but the quality and fit/finish of this watch is perfect. Everything lines up perfectly, nothing about this watch feels "cheap". Also it has features like automatic hand positioning every hour from five minutes before the hour to five minutes after the hour. If your hands are ever off the tick marks (if you jar it hard enough to somehow do that) it automatically corrects for this to align them perfectly. So every time your second hand moves for example, it will always align dead on with the corresponding tick mark. Also the solar feature and automatic atomic time keeping are great. You never have to worry about changing a battery and compromising the seal on the back of the watch. Also every night from midnight to 6am it attempts to receive a radio signal to reset the watch time to the correct atomic time. All you have to do is set it near a window and it will do the rest.
The stopwatch feature is a little lacking since it only goes up to 24 minutes but without a digital screen they did the best they could with the analog hands. Plus it's kinda cool to watch an analog watch go through a stopwatch mode. The watch does not have a backlight but it does have luminous hands and numbers/ticks. Alot of people complained about the lack of glow but it seemed adequate for me. It is by no means bright but once your eyes adjust to the darkness you can read the faint glow of the watch just fine.
The watch is NOT hard to set up. That was the second big complaint from everybody. If you have any pateince at all, have even a little understanding of watches, and about 10 - 15 minutes then this watch is a breeze to set up. Just read the instructions and it all goes fine.
The strap is nice and thick and the watch face is large but not overly large that it looks ridiculous on smaller wrists. Overall I am 100% satisfied with the watch and it operates with such precision it's kind of amazing. Trust me it's not a $30 Timex.
Radio time calibration is just awesome, if you haven't had a watch that has this feature before, then you are in for a treat. Solar- no batteries to replace for a long, long time. Awesome!
Two time zones always visible- I travel a lot for work; this going to be great! Preprogrammed calendar with date and DAY OF THE WEEK display!! You'd be surprised how often one can loose track of what the hell day it is when your on the road and not keeping a 9-5 or M-F schedule. The luminous treatment is great- just as good, especially on the hands, as my Seiko chrono. The indices are less bright, but the orange glows green!! So cool. Different shades of black/finishes are awesome, and the dial has depth that is noticeable even in the dark (when the lume is charged). It is a large watch for sure, but personally, when I travel, I like having substantial things from home with me (plus a stopwatch to play with if I get bored on the plane- I can clock the time it takes for the kids behind me to start kicking my seat!). However, as other reviewers have noted, you have to take some time and read the instructions in order to understand it's operation. Although playing with it and discovering how it works is part of the fun if you are into gadgets. Just remember, this is essentially a digital watch with an analogue display. The logic in its operation is very similar to that of a standard LCD G-shock. But with this model, the visual cues all come from the movement and placement of the various hands on the dial- as opposed to blinking numbers. The instructions basically tell you what buttons to push and how to push them, then what to look for on the dial. Once you figure it, you may want to keep playing with it, as I have found myself doing all day.
Overall, I am very pleased with this watch, much more so than many of the expensive mechanical watches that I have had over the years. For the price, it is definitely a good deal; especially given its accuracy, features and near indestructibility. I recommend this watch to frequent travelers, or really anyone who likes the features of digital watch, but prefers the aesthetic of an analogue display. Thanks for reading and have great day!
