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.

I travel a LOT. So first and foremost, I needed a watch that could deal with multiple time zones easily. I needed to be able to set them easy, and view them easy. Also:
MY needs, pretty much in order of need:
Dual (or more) time zones
Date display (and day would be nice)
Readable at night
No battery (auto or solar)
Waterproof to at least 10 atm
This watch did it for me!
Actually, what I really wanted was the citizen Skyhawk - I liked the steel/titanium band - but when you have dual time, you don't get the date in your home city - WTF?!
So I bought this casio - and LOVE it.
- I was leery about the resin band - but it's pretty comfortable, and I like not having to take it off when I'm at the gym in the shower (I wouldn't wear my leather band in the shower...).
- The atomic function resets the watch almost every night - actually if it worked once a week, I'd be happy, but it's almost every night -- while on my hand in bed. (I'm near Washington DC)
- The LED Light works like a freaking charm! In addition to a button on the watch, it can be set to automatic, so when you look at the light it turns on - it actually works! Works really well! I had another timex that was supposed to do that and it sucked, I had to practically break my wrist to get it to work... this is bizzarly great (when I look at the watch, the light goes on, but only at night - awesome :))
- Dual time function works great - it's actually 3 times - the main hands, the 3oclock dial is another, and then the LCD is another (but I have the LCD normally set to show date)
- The grey on black LCD is a bit hard to read at first, in low light it doesn't show all that well - I wish that was better, but not a deal breaker - that's about the only negative. In normal light though, I actually like the look, and it's very readable.
- Bottom line is that after 10+ watches, this one stuck. Good job.
>> Excellent <<
1. Atomic clock sync: never once, during the night when positioned as instructed, has it failed to synchronize.
2. Analog hands and digits: at a glance, in bright light or low light, it takes me less than two seconds to read the current time. Reason why: the neon-like yellow hands practically glow in bright light and low light conditions.
3. LED function: exceptionally bright and therefore highly functional.
4. Band: very comfortable and stylish.
5. Glass casing: very robust and, as of now, mine is totally scratch free.
6. Chronograph and countdown timers: while backcountry skiing and alpine climbing, the chronograph feature allows me to easily keep track of (and view) ascent and descent durations.
7. Recessed buttons: exceptionally well-designed because they're set to prevent accidental bumps yet they respond instantly once intentionally pressed.
>> Good <<
8. Day and date display: initially, I thought the gray on black digital numbers would be too difficult to view in all but bright daylight. I was mistaken -- the numbers are easily read under most light conditions.
>> Acceptable <<
9. In low or zero light conditions, while the LED adequately illuminates the hands and digits, it does not illuminate the two digital displays showing, for example, Day and Date.
10. Alarm notification: like all other watches I have owned, it is not loud enough to wake me from my slumber.
In summary, if I lost this watch within two years or so, as the best watch I've ever owned, I would certainly repurchase the exact same model.
