This watch looks so much better then the photos attached to the product. It is stylish with a full black coloring. The pictures lead me to think that it may be grey with black accents. Not the case.

After reviewing the many options for a military watch up to 130.00, I settled on this watch. I did start to have buyers remorse thinking I should have just spent double and bought the mirror face "dressy" G-shock for 130.00. I tried to cancel this order to change to the dressier watch, but it was too late to cancel. I figured I would try it out and return it if I didn't like it.

The watch came and I am soooo glad that I wasn't able to cancel. It is a very stylish watch that can be used for casual or business casual. Chrome accents on the black body and face make it even more attractive. It is as comfortable as any watch I have worn. I wouldn't say I could wear it sleep like others have said, but I can't say that about any watch (or other jewelery).

The watch came set already. It was off by one hour. No worries though. It reset at night. I also noticed the power level at Mid. Since I live in Florida, I have access to a lot of sunlight. Within 2 hours the watch was on High.

All in all, I am very satisfied with the watch. It was one of the lowest priced solar, atomic G-shocks offered, but that was only part of the equation. It still had to look good. This watch has it all. I reviewed many watches and spent many hours making this decision and I don't regret it for a moment.

I was looking for a watch that I did not have to worry about battery replacement, had atomic timekeeping for consistent accuracy, and I could see relatively easily at night. I must say this watch really meets my needs. The watch is a little bigger than I thought as I am used to a smaller and lighter Air Sports watch. The automatic atomic feature returned errors the first few times I tried it, but later worked well in a couple different locations in NY and PA. Now it's working well every night in VA when I place it near a window. I like the auto light feature, which automatically activates the light when you turn your wrist toward you at a certain angle. The auto EL feature probably works correctly 90% of the time. Overall I am pleased with the watch. The watch was shipped to me via free super saver shipping. I was excited when I saw it was shipped via Fed Ex Smartpost thinking I would receive it quicker. However Fed Ex Smartpost utilizes the US postal service to deliver! So please be aware of that. I am not sure if Fed Ex really helps the shipping speed or not. 4 out of 5 stars due to the slightly larger size than expected, initial problem with auto atomic time keeping, and the auto EL feature sometimes does not work depending on how you turn your wrist. Overall it's a great daily wear watch that looks good, is easy to maintain and keeps really accurate time. Hopefully it will continue to work well in the years to come. Great way to try one of the Casio G shock watches without spending a ton of money.

Bought this watch about a year ago now, and I must say that I couldn't be happier with the purchase. In the entire time I've had it, it's never been less than fully charged, and I love the fact that I never need to worry about the battery - even after having recently left it in a drawer for 3 weeks due to deciding to wear a seiko I just purchased. It's also very durable and I have yet to get a scratch on the face (or anywhere else for that matter). I will say that I have some problems getting it to sync correctly and I live in Los Angeles, so I don't know if that's a factor (probably more of a user issue than anything, which is why I'm still giving the watch 5 stars). The light makes it easily visible in the dark, but also isn't overly bright. It also totally fits in both a work setting and a non-work (outdoor) setting. Would definitely buy this watch again and recommend it to anyone.

I got this watch as a birthday present to myself. I wanted a solar, atomic, watch that can take a beating. This watch is that and then some. It is much nicer then it appears on line. Also, it is not too big for my small wrists. Its a really cool watch.

I love everything about this watch, with one important exception. This watch looks great, keeps near perfect time with the atomic feature, is loaded with other features, is incredibly durable, and comes at a great price. The problem is that the battery runs down if you wear long sleeves. The solar power worked great for me during the summber months when it got lots of sun, but it's a problem now that it is autumn in the Northeast. I'm not happy that I need to leave it on the sunny dashboard of my car for several hours to get it recharged, but even that only gives it enough juice for two or three days before the "LOW" indicator starts flashing on the watch face and features start shutting down again.

This would be the perfect watch for anyone that likes the look of a rugged digital watch if the solar feature worked better, but that is a significant problem.
