From an owner of this watch
on March 8, 2014
I bought this watch last week (disclosure: Not from Amazon, direct from Casio), because I loved it in the pictures. I'm something of a collector of G-Shock watches, but I've been a bit disappointed in some of the newer watches. Sure, they look great, but the design on some of them makes it actually really hard to read the time, which I think is something of a fundamental fault.
This watch (as you can see from the picture does not have that problem). The display is clear, easy to read, and the night light is fantastic (the tip of the second hand even lights up).
I wasn't prepared when I put this watch on for the first time, for how stunning it looks (yes, G-Shocks are an acquired taste, but the picture doesn't do it justice). It's fantastically gorgeous! It is a very big, very chunky watch though, so it may not be suitable for everyone. Still, I have thin wrists and I love the way it looks on me. I might be quite old, but I still understand the word 'bling' :-)
The compass function is fun, you press the 9 o'clock button and the second hand points North. I'm not sure how often I'll use that, but I bought this watch for it's looks. It was also easy to correct to my time zone.
In conclusion, I absolutely adore this watch and it's hardly left my wrist since I got it. If you like G-Shocks, this is one of the best. If you are not sure, go and try it on in a shop first.
