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.

Top Customer Reviews
I'm not a big boned individual with large wrists, and this watch fits me wonderfully without being obtrusively large.
The mineral crystal is crystal clear. Significantly clearer than the resin crystals used in several other watch brands.
Additionally, the buttons are recessed nicely to prevent accidental button pushes when bending sharply at the wrist. Another frequent annoyance I've noticed with my now unreliable Timex watches.
As I stand now, it appears Timex has permanently lost one of there customers to Casio.
Update: I've now had this watch for four months. I still like it far more than any watch I've owned. The crystal is crystal clear, and it almost does everything it claims. The only thing I have a little disappointment with is in regards to self charging. I've learned the watch doesn't charge fast enough on its own while wearing it, and I've had to put the watch directly under a bright light for several nights in order for it to recharge to full after reaching the low power indicator. If the grid were to go down in a shtf moment, I'm not convinced this watch would survive without going dead in time. I pray I will never have to find out with that theory.
6 month update: Every part of this watch works wonderfully except for the battery. Now, after 6 months, the battery clearly isn't maintaining a charge. After charging the watch to full power under a light for several nights, if I wear it without additional light source intervention to charge the watch the watch goes completely dead in about 6 weeks. I'm now exploring my options.
8 month update: The battery now will not charge past 50% even after being left 6" under a 100 watt light for 2 weeks, and when I wear it the battery only lasts a couple weeks at best. I will now look into getting a replacement battery and let you know how it goes.
1 year update: Everything the watch does, it still does wonderfully except charging. It will not charge past 50%. I've turned off the auto illumination feature and the charge does last a little longer with it turned off, but it only allows the battery to last a few weeks longer at most before going dead. I've looked into and considered getting a new battery for it, but I've learned they aren't cheap. I've contacted Casio about 6 months ago regarding the issue and they responded back by asking me to send them the watch (at my total expense) with a prepaid return label, and if they find it is faulty they will repair it and send it back at no additional cost. However, if they find it faulty but feel it's due to operator error, they will repair it for an additional cost. This may be where my biggest disappointment rests in that Casio was unwilling to back up their product without presenting strings attached that it's at their discretion. The watch was purchased new by me, it wasn't abused in any manner nor was it exposed to high temperatures from lights or sunlight, however, in my opinion they were unwilling to do what was necessary to repair the watch in a manner that's comfortable and cost free for the consumer.
Sending them the watch in their requested manner with a return label will cost me the same, if not slightly more, than if I were to simply purchase a new rechargeable battery for the watch (which is difficult to locate and Casio elusively avoided providing me with any details as to where I can get one despite my direct question), and if they make other repairs it may cost me more than it would for me to purchase an entirely new watch. All in all, I like the watch a lot, but when the battery goes dead for good I doubt I will get another rechargeable watch like this one. Bottom line, a solar watch that doesn't maintain charge isn't much of a watch.
On the downside, the backlight button is actually quite difficult to find in the dark. I also really hate the strap. It is extremely stiff, it's too small (like everyone else is saying) and it also has a really cheap feel to it.
