    Ordered the watch through Amazon via Chelsea Watch. Was shipped fast and was exactly as promised. Comes with a bracelet sized for an elephant's trunk so unless you are an elephant, removing links is in your future. Do yourself a favour. Take it to a jeweller as the pins have tiny, tiny retainers which you will lose.

    The watch is a little on the light side, guess that's because the case is mostly plastic and the safety clasp is cheap but will last. I love the auto illumination feature which lights up the face when the watch is angled towards you. Gets the atomic time with no problem as long as it is near a window. No complaints, I wear this thing all the time now.

    In the future, I will only buy solar watches. This is my second one and the first with the atomic time receiver.

    This watch is exactly what I was looking for: automatic sync with NIST, selected time zones, a stopwatch, all at an affordable price. It was very easy to set up, too. The tag "atomic" is misleading. NIST time transmitted over WWVB is based on an atomic time standard; however the watch itself is not atomic powered!

    I love this watch. I have had it for 4 years now and dive and snorkel with it every year. It is showing some wear but still works as great as the day it arrived.
    I love the fact that it sets itself and you never have to replace the batteries.

    Cons: Its pretty thick on my wrist.

    Still worth every penny I paid for it.

    I love and use every feature of the watch. The other reviews tell you how great most everything works. But many don't seem to use the solar bearing.

    If you are a hiker, you may think, as I thought, that it would be a great feature to get a quick bearing without a compass. There's a straight-forward but non-trivial calculation to get the solar azimuth given the time of day and latitude and longitude. From the description of the watch, you would expect it to do that calculation.

    However, it appears that the watch does _not_ do that calculation. It produces a linear result which is much too simple, and is off by nearly 40 degrees at certain times of day. It appears to get the azimuth closest near sunrise and sunset and noon, and is off most of the rest of the day.

    I was quite disappointed when I found this out. If you never plan to use the solar bearing, you won't care a whit.

    [Fortunately, I decided to test it out before hiking without a compass, and I happened to do it at a time that showed up the error very well.]

    Here is an example, for a particular day, of the azimuth according to the watch and the correct azimuth from the US Naval Observatory, so you can see what I mean:

    (Sorry, I can't format this properly. The last number on each line tells you the error.)

    I purchased the watch in May of 2008.
    The main reason I purchased a watch with a metal band is that I have had so many of the plastic/resin bands break and the replacements cost almost as much as a new watch. This one seems durable although the band is connected to the body of the watch with plastic/resin. Hopefully those parts will not become brittle and break.
    **The body of the watch is plastic even though it looks like metal.**
    As other people have mentioned, upon receipt the watch may take a few days to get up to full charge.
    Overall, after 11 months, I'm still satisfied with the watch and glad I bought it.

    To aid in band size adjustment, I will try to post pictures of some links and the pin assembly and the tools I used to remove the pins. In the pictures, the pin/sleeve assembly is positioned next to the link in the same orientation as when installed in a link. The point of the safety-pin is used to push the small end of the link-pin out of the tiny compression sleeve in the direction of the arrows on the links. Do the work in an area where you can keep track of the tiny parts and find them if you drop them. Use two large paper clips to push the pin and sleeve together when connecting the links.
    Another option is to buy a link pin removal tool (Amazon has them).
    If you're not good with tiny parts, get a professional to do it.

    This watch is actually better than I thought it would be. One nice feature is the auto-light feature at night. While in a dark environment, you simply lift your wrist to view your watch and the light comes automatically. I have no idea how it works but it is my favorite feature. I've had so many watches in the years past but this one is the best ever. I will never have to worry about the battery wearing out or the time being incorrect. The instructions tell you to lay the watch by a window at night so it can sync up with the atomic clock signal. I have never done this. I wear it in bed every night and it syncs every night without a problem. I live in St. Louis, MO so my signal must be pretty strong. The watch is bigger than I originally wanted but I am already used to it. I also like the four alarms and the snooze feature. I am so glad I bought this watch. PS The band had to be resized and I brought it to a mall for resizing. The first place I brought it to the guy refused to even try so I took it to a jeweler and they resized it. It took the person a long time and in the end, the pins that hold the links together kept sliding out. I would continue to push them back in all day until I put a very small drop of gorilla glue on the tip of each and now they stay in. Buy this watch! I hope you like it as much as I do.
