Functions

LED light
A light-emitting diode (LED) is used to illuminate the watch face.

Solar Power
A solar cell provides power for operation.

Radio signal reception (EU, USA, Japan, China)
Whether in Europe, North America and Japan or in the outer reaches of Canada, Central America and China - once the watch has been set to the local time, it receives the relevant signal and shows the correct time wherever you are. In many countries, it also sets itself automatically to summer and winter time.

Neo-display
A luminous coating provides long-term illumination in the dark after only a short exposure to light.

World time function
Displays the current time in major cities and specific areas around the world.

Stopwatch function - 1/100 sec. - 1 hour
Elapsed time, split time and final time are measured with 1/100-sec accuracy. The watch can measure times of up to 1 hour.

Timer - 1/1 min. - 100 min.
The countdown timer emits a signal after a preset period of time has elapsed. The watch has a maximum timing capacity of 100 minutes and can be set in minute-long cycles.

5 daily alarms
The daily alarm reminds you about recurring events with an acoustic signal at the time you have set. You can also activate hourly time signal that indicates each full hour. This model has 5 independent alarms for flexible reminders of important appointments.

Button tones on/off
The button tones for using the mode button can be turned off. This means that the watch no longer beeps when switching from one function to another. Preset alarm or countdown timers remain active when the button tones are deactivated.

Multi-language
The name of the day can be displayed in different languages.

Automatic calendar
Once set, the automatic calendar always displays the correct date.

Safety Catch
Always reliable: This watch has a particularly secure safety catch, which helps prevent the strap from opening by mistake.

Battery level indicator
An indicator shows the current battery level.

Water resistance classification (10 bar)
Perfect for swimming and snorkelling: the watch is water resistant to 10 bar / 100 metres. The metres value does not relate to a diving depth but to the air pressure used in the course of the water resistance test. (ISO 22810)

Casio WVA-M640TD-1AER Review - Excellent

First and foremost, I must say that I am absolutely delighted with this watch. I bought a similar model many years ago and have been using it maintenance free ever since. The only reason for replacing it was that the buttons had finally become difficult to operate and the finish was starting to spoil. Although most of the casing was stainless steel, it became apparent that some of it was resin, with a silver coloured coating, which was being rubbed off and starting to look a bit shabby. Because I had enjoyed so many years of precision timekeeping without any need for adjustment or battery replacement, I looked at the current Casio offerings and found that there were now both stainless steel and titanium versions of the latest equivalent model. I was pleased to see that Casio no longer attempt to disguise the resin parts of the casing, which I believe are a necessary part of the design to allow reception of the time signals. They appear to have reduced the amount of it and present it in a light grey tone, which is compatible with the metal but is uncoated and will therefore maintain its appearance over time. The parts that look like metal are metal and should also maintain their appearance. In an ideal world, there would be no resin but the latest treatment is a good compromise.

Now, to the choice between stainless steel and titanium. The titanium is a little more expensive, is a softer but still attractive colour and is lighter. Many of the reviews I saw talked about it being nice and light but none of them quantified the difference. Having weighed both models, as supplied, I can tell you that the stainless steel version came in at 92 grams and the titanium a pleasingly lighter 72 grams. After removal of four links in the bracelet to suit my wrist size, it came down to 64 grams, compared to 92 grams for my old, similarly adjusted stainless steel version. Clearly, itís a matter of personal choice as to which finish you prefer and whether you see the lightness of the titanium as desirable. For me, it was a simple choice to go for the titanium. Having mentioned adjustment of the bracelet, this is an absolute triumph of design and simplicity. Donít be put off by the rather wordy instructions, just make a start and you will find that it is delightfully simple and logical, allowing for quick removal of unnecessary links, which can be just as easily added back should the need arise. The bracelet on my old watch pulled at the hairs on my wrist for a while until it settled down but the new one has been entirely comfortable from day one.

My only disappointment is with the tiny, almost unreadable print of the miniature user manual. I searched online for Casio module 5161, which is the code quoted on the manual, and found a pdf, which can be enlarged to read comfortably on screen. If you study the manual, you will find warnings about making sure that your sleeve doesnít obscure the face, thus depriving it of valuable light for charging. It also recommends removing the watch at night and placing it on a windowsill with correct alignment to achieve the best time signal. In practice, however, neither of these recommendations appears to be necessary. I have never given the slightest thought to providing sufficient daylight for charging and my last watch always maintained the highest charge level. Also, I never remove my watch at night and it always updates successfully from the time signal.

There are three buttons on this watch to achieve an enormous range of functions. As it is difficult to remember all the appropriate sequences without reference to the manual, I decided to create mnemonics for the three buttons which are labelled in the manual as A, B and C, which I hope you may also find useful:
A Ė Activates the light and allows you to Adjust the settings
B Ė Browses through the various modes like Time, Battery, Stopwatch etc. and also through the different settings that can be changed when you go into adjustments
C Ė Changes the values displayed in the LCD window and the values of the settings in adjustments

The light provides a practical way to read the time in the dark but I imagine that overuse would run down the battery.

Iíve had the new watch for a week now and it shows every indication of being just as successful as the earlier model with the addition of some welcome improvements.

I just received this watch in Estonia. Its my first day with this watch but I like to dig in the functions right away to learn how to fully use my tools.
Watch looks really great, like they say: Everything Casio stands for is embodied in this watch. Yet I dont know about reliability, Im sure that I dont have to dissapoint dueto I have owned various other Casio watches before and they all still work as a charm, but feature rich and affordable it is. Really nice looking titanium case and bracelet. Safety Catch is well designed and seems very strong. Bracelet is easily adjustable with included tool. Manual is there to use but I didnít need this, just look the tool and bracelet and clear it is, isnít it? I work as navigational officer and 100 metres water resistance is essential for me. Not that I need it on board but I also like to jump in to the water where ever I can. Though, which I did not expect from this kind of watch is yellow backlight, it just does not match this style, hopefully I do not have to use it to much cause hour markers and hands are also well illuminated in dark. They started visibly glowing already daytime in rainy weather. Also this plastic around the case is not so cool. But it does not stand out too much, as this light does.
About functions. Everything is there what I need. Most important - Automatic time keeping. I did not expect this to work in Estonia, but it works great, just like they describe in manual, in 5 minutes I manually received signal and time was syncronised. Battery is really charging even just with interior lights and showing Hi most of the time. First it was Mid. 5 alarms and houerly beep - All very useful for meon board, as also stopper and timer. It is very easy to adjust time when Im travelling, no need to tune exact hours and minutes just change timezone and it will automatically tune. It does not automatically change timezone, which I think is good, it may be confusing otherways. Calender is automatic also so no need to worry about February, it automatically skips dates to correct date every year, up to year 2099 :D Date can be shown in many different languages, if one likes to see date in japanese, it is possible.
Watch is also great for kids who are still learning to understand analog time hands. Digital and analog time can be seen at same time :D
Again I have to say that this watch is exactly what I need, like my girlfriend says Ė now I have watch which I can use when I have to wear uniform. All functions are there, no extra stuff on background. It is precise and concise. It takes just few moments to learn how to use all functions. It looks simple and clear and is simple to use but under hood are some hi-tech features. Only thing bugging me is this yellow LED backlight, everything else is well put together, why not blue or white LED ... but yellow ... it just does not match and makes it look cheap for me.

Exactly what I was looking for. Lovely and light due to the Titanium construction. Easy to use. Easy to read important for me as I didnt want a watch I needed to wear glasses to read.

Some reviewers have slated the fact that the mid-section of the case is plastic. Yes, it is, but it looks great, part of the watch and as the views on the website let you look at every angle, you can see for yourself before you buy, because the pictures on the site are 100% representative of the real watch.

When mine arrived, it was already charged Hi, all I needed to do was set the Home city, it did the rest itself. I did read the instructions, to fully understand the way the Time signal works, as I travel internationally a fair amount, so I wanted to be sure it suited my needs and it does, but to be honest, it is a very simple watch to use.

The one thing I didnt pick up on, was the Backlight. It isnt a Back light, if you look at the watch face, look at the 6 oclock marker, below it youl see the 18 24 hr marker, the light emits up from between these 2 markers. It is an amber/yellow LED which illuminates the entire watch face. This is pleasantly different to the common all garden dim back lights, which only illuminate the digital sections of the screen.

All too often I consider buying watches with negative digital screens black background, white numbers, but they are always too difficult to read in low light without using the backlight, so this time I chose a regular screen. It was the right choice, so easy to read.

The instructions state the need to place the watch near/in a window ledge to ensure that the time signal can be received each night, but I havent needed to do this even once so far. The signal has been received successfully on the first attempt every day. You can tell this by the time the signal was set, it attempts 6 times, on the hour from 1am and so far, every day, it has been set at 1:03 it takes about 3 mins.

So, would I recommend this watch? Definitely. Would I save the £30 and go for the Stainless Steel equivalent? Thats a personal preference, some men think a heavy watch is more masculine, I have a selection of both heavy and light watches, but I do find this a very comfortable watch to wear all day.

First of all may I congratulate Watch Shop for the prompt attention to my order. I ordered the watch on Sunday and was able to track its progress from the following day until it was delivered on Tuesday.

The watch itself was surprisingly light and comfortable to wear for what looks like a quite chunky watch compared to ones I have owned previously. After leaving the watch in the light to fully charge, it has retained its charge well. Appearance wise it looks smart on the wrist with the added addition of not worrying about altering dates and checking the time plus added functions eg stopwatch, alarm and timer which may come handy to use. I bought the watch the week before the clocks went forward and forgot to change all the clocks in the house but the Casio was the only one correct in the morning.

The only negative that I can give is that I asked for the strap to be altered so I could wear it straight away. Although it was done, whether my measurement submitted was wrong or not, the strap was a bit on the generous side but the instructions and the tool provided made altering the strap easy, so much so that had I have known how easy it was I would not have requested the alteration when ordering.

I would recommend the Casio Waveceptor to anyone and also recommend them to purchase from Watch Shop for a hassle free service.

Wanted a watch that ticked the boxes that were inportant to me.
1. No battery to change.
2. No time/date to change
3. Analog with digital functions, alarm, chrono etc.
Normaly only have leather straps but I saw a review that said the metal strap was very comfy, I have to agree, and say that the strap is easy to adjust.
Took it out of the box, set the time zone, job done.
Very pleased.

For years I have had all kinds of watches none of them were really good time keepers and in the early days you had to wind them up and then have to get them cleanedmat a jewellers it was quite expensive .
Later on battery watches started to appear in the shops at last a watch that kept good time
But i still had to replace the batteries every year or so and it was proving to be quite expensive.
Moving forward we now have eco drive watches waveceptor these are brilliant they keeps perfect time looks expensive but are not and being titanium are very light,3991 you dont know you are wearing it .
And to add to this you never need to replace the battery as its charged by the sun and any light source and its kept in perfect time by a transmitter so it never loses a second.
look how far we have come from cumbersome hand winding watches of yesterday to this amazing technology of today I am amazed by it all and Im over 70 years old.

If like me you need your reading glasses to see things close up then this watch solves the problem. It has an easily readable, large and high contrast face, Even the day/date is clear without glasses. It is stylish and light-weight on the wrist and easily adjusted to size with the simple provided tool. Once easily set to the correct time zone, the watch automatically maintains the correct time/date through radio time synch. However, to ensure the battery is charged by the photocell, you do need to leave the watch on somewhere like a window sill when not being worn. With 5 alarms, stopwatch, countdown timer and easily set time zones this is a cracking watch for the money.
So, if you need an easily readable stylish watch without the need for settins adjustment then this watch is highly recommended.
The instruction book, although comprehensive, is rather small but you can easily download a PDF version from the Casio web site.

Ordered a Casio Waveceptor Titanium Alarm Cronograph Watch from the Watch Shop, after looking at all the various makes on offer . I finally decided to buy this model as it looked as though it was not too large and it didnt have any buttons which stuck out from the watch like a lot of the models . I ordered the watch on Friday 11/07 and it was delivered the next day on the 12th. very efficient from the company. The watch itself is easy to set up ,including adjusting the strap to fit your wrist using the tool provided and it adjusts the time all by itself which is very handy . All in all it is an excellent watch for the price and I am very happy with it.

UNVERIFIED REVIEW (The reviewer has not yet been verified themselves as a Watch Shop customer)

I am delighted with this watch. I previously owned a Casio Wave Ceptor, but wanted to upgrade to a more recent model with a titanium case and metal strap. The watch is very stylish, has a smart but not ornate face, and keeps excellent time by logging into a radio signal every night. It also keeps its battery charged through a solar cell built into the face. Unlike my old watch, this one connects in Europe and North America so I will be able to use it when on holiday.
My old watch had a plastic strap which had to be replaced a couple of times. Im hoping that the metal strap of this model will be everlasting.

Great watch, the more I use it the more I like it, it looks good in an understated way and feels very light. My previous watch had broken when adjusting the date at the end of a thirty day month so the fact that this one adjusts itself is one of its attractions. When it came the watch was set on UTC time, a couple of minutes reading the instructions and pressing a couple of buttons set it to London time which is the same as UTC in the winter but you need to do this so that it will reset itself for BST when appropriate. Adjusting the bracelet is also very easy using the small plastic tool which is supplied.
The instructions say that you need to put the watch near to a window at night for it to receive the radio signal to adjust itself, I have found mine has reset each night at 1:03 even though it is about three metres from the window. At night the watch goes into power saving mode, the second finger stops and the digital display goes off if the watch is in a dark place but both restart as soon as you bring it back into the light or press any button. So in my opinion a great watch with great features which is easy to use.

The pros
I was fed up with altering my previous watch at the end of most months to change the date.
The watch checks each night via radio signal to ensure you have the correct time.
The battery is recharged by solar energy so no worries that the battery will need changing.
Very clear & uncluttered face, I feel it is much better than other models with various small dials
The window showing the day & date or stopwatch, countdown, world time ect is large enough to read with ease.
The cons
The instruction booklet is comprehensive but the text is very small, however a pdf file is available online.
A bit fiddly to operate the various buttons but once mastered no problem.
Overall
I am really satisfied with the watch & would recommend to anyone thinking of buying a mid-priced watch & as far as I am concerned why would you want a more expensive watch when the Casio Waveceptor titanium alarm chronograph watch wva-m640td-1aer provides everything you need at a reasonable price

The watch is a replacement for a similar Casio Waveceptor. I choose the solar powered version since this negates the need to replace the battery which was the cause of the problems with the previous model.
This model has a titanium case and strap which makes it very light. The time sync works flawlessly and the control logic has improved.
Especially like the new design of the strap which makes removing and adding links absolutely trivial.

This Casio really is a bit special. Unlike many modern watches with a comprehensive range of functions, its not over sized, its very light, comfortable and simple to setup and use. Casio have succeeded in blending up to date and useful technology with a traditional easy to read and masculine design that looks more expensive than it actually is. Im very pleased with it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a proper chaps watch at a realistic price.

This watch is surprisingly light and comfortable to wear compared to others I have owned.

After leaving the watch in the light to fully charge, it has kept its charge well, leaving the watch under any light source will help to maintain its charge.

Looks smart when being worn.

No need to worry about altering the date or checking the time is correct nor worry about switching between GMT and BST,

The other functions such as the stopwatch, 5 alarms and countdown timer will be useful on occasions.

The instructions and the tool provided made altering the strap very easy.

I only needed to set my home city and check that daylight saving was set to auto on receiving the watch.

The manual was in very tiny print, but there is a downloadable pdf version on the Casio site, which you can zoom in on to making reading easier

I recommend the Waveceptor to anyone and also recommend purchasing from Watch Shop for a prompt and hassle free service.

Excellent watch! Has all the features I was looking for, including solar power, radio control and dual display.

The good:
1. Super light thanks to the titanium bracelet.
2. Smart, clean aesthetics.
3. Always accurate.
4. Casio includes a little tool to remove links from the bracelet. Very clever design Ė I havenít seen this before. Made it really easy to adjust to my wrist size.

The bad:
1. The plastic. There is some grey plastic around the watch face which detracts from an otherwise premium-looking watch.
2. I donít really like the light. I was expecting a green/blue backlight to the LCD display but actually there is this orange LED at the bottom.
3. Stopwatch only goes up to an hour.

Got this watch to replace my old digital Casio that has been brilliant for over 10 years on the same battery but is broken. This watch looks nice but if I had the chance I think I would send it back dont take the sticky tape off until your sure you want to keep it it is made of plastic with metal bits added, see photo. The strap is very simple to adjust and the time should be spot on once you set it to the correct time zone, had to read the instructions for that bit. Havent found out how to turn the alarm off yet, more reading required. I have decided not to wear this for work as I dont think it would last anything like the last one did.

Wife bought watch for me as an anniversary gift. I am highly delighted with it. Really appreciate the radio controlled function coupled with the solar powered cell which keeps watch charged and always showing correct time. The titanium case and bracelet are stylish hardwearing and extremely light to wear compared to my previous stainless steel watch. Getting used to the various watch functions. Excellent watch excellent price and excellent Watchshop service. Fully recommend this watch.

I had owned an earlier Waveceptor model purchased 4 or more years ago. I lost it last november while working. I have replaced it with this newer model because the watch has proved reliable and a good-looker. The older model was begining to show wear around the case so I will be interested to see if the Titanium model wears longer - only time will tell. This new watch looks as good as its predecessor and is working well.
the analogue dial is very clear and the digital display is good for the use I require, which is date and stopwatch. The stopwatch is easier to use on this model.
Overall an excellent watch

Perfect Watch
At 78 years Ive had quite a few watches in my time, but at last I think Ive found the perfect one. Accurate to the second, comfortable to wear, no battery to worry about, 5 alarms, stopwatch, countdown timer, water resistant to 100m and very stylish. The watch comes with a little tool and instructions for removing links in the band, so you can get a perfect fit. Removing links was easy and simple even for me. The instruction booklet is in five languages and the writing is quite small, but I went on Casios website and downloaded a PDF version. This enabled me to enlarge the pages on the computer and read them easily. Oh! And I nearly forgot, The Watch Shop staff are so efficient, they should be running the country.

The lighting feature on the watch allows clear viewing of the screen in dark surroundings, proving very helpful in the evenings. Another feature that is essential in a watch for me is that the watch is waterproof and thus doesnt have to be removed before swimming. I am able to participate in a range of sports with this durable and resilient watch with a sporty yet smart design. There are no major problems or downsides to this watch and hence why I chose it in the first place, the price was a plus and it is well worth the money. Some people may not like the appearance of the grey plastic material used for the waveceptor feature of the watch, this is not too noticeable for me. Also the glass is not scratch resistant so a cover may be a good investment alongside purchase.

Very good model. Clear, large, smart, simple dial and digital window for date and other functions. Very light and comfortable titanium bracelet.
Solar charging means one doesnt have to worry about running out of battery power. And waveceptor means you can be confident of always having the exact time without need to check periodically the exact time with other sources eg. Phone, TV etc.
Visible phosphorescent hands at night and light for digital window a plus in the dark.
The digital window functions have all the usually required or useful functions: day date in bold clear numbers are much better than the smaller and much more difficult to read numbers in most analogue watches.
Alarm, timer, stopwatch and digital time functions make it a most complete watch for most peoples needs, even in water!
Overall a most complete, comfortable and beautifully designed model. Well done Casio.

This is an excellent watch for the money. There are good features needed on the digital section although I did expect to be able to see the time now in digital format as well. The hands are very clear and the nightlight is of good strength. The hands stay luminous for a whole night.
All in all a very pleasing buy.
The titanium case and strap look lovely and make the watch lighter than you expect when first handling it.

The order arrived in perfect condition, less than 24h after ordering. The item was well packaged and exactly as described

The watch performs perfectly although I had to put it under a bright light to get it fully charged - not too close to avoid over-heating. The manual was a little small and difficult to read but it described operation of the watch clearly. Scrolling through all the menus can initially be a little confusing but after a while it begins to make sense. The watch bracelet was too big, but the adjustment tool supplied with the watch made adjusting the strap unbelievably easy - it took me just a few minutes. The watch itself looks wonderful and functions perfectly - and at the sale price, something of a bargain! I am very happy with this product.

An excellent watch that provides all of the functions that I would like: Ive always had problems with watch batteries so the solar powered aspect of it I find very useful. I also like the time update every 24 hours providing extremely accurate time keeping with no effort on my part! This is my third Waveceptor in a row - my first one which is 9 years old still works perfectly as does my 4 year old second one - the only reason I replace them is because the watch tends to show wear and tear after a while - I would recommend the titanium strap rather than the stainless steel on the stainless steel strapped ones the body of the watch seems to be resin painted with metallic paint which flakes off over time. That is the only negative point that I have found and probably if I took a bit more care they would retain their looks a bit longer! Overrall I strongly recommend the Waveceptor series of watches.

Very straightforward watch, direct replacement for an earlier version that has done me proud but which was so loved that it now bears the scars of a long life even if still fully functional. Bonus is automatic DST setting, more world atomic clocks to choose from, and a second hand. Down side is that the watch is a little thicker than earlier versions, but not really a problem.

I have always found that Casio watches are excellent value. I particularly like the latest Wave Captor which is solar driven and has multiple features, including five separate alarms! A stop watch, a count down timer and many other functions all making this watch a brilliant time piece and one to treasure. I almost forgot but one that is critical to me.... Watches have to be virtually Bomb Proof as l have a tendency to keep my watch on when doing all manner of things and prior to the latest Casio watches which have an excellent No Scratch Mineral Glass l used to end up with so many scratches on the glass l could not read the data. So l have no hesitation in recommending my latest Casio Wave Captor to anyone looking for a classy and accurate time piece. John F Ward

Absolutely perfect choice for a quality everyday watch. No need to struggle in the dark to see the dial as the LED illumination lights up the face and replenishes the illumination quality of the characters. Lightweight, so light in fact you can forget you are wearing it and the best thing there is no need to worry about the battery needing to be replaced as it is solar charged and once charged up to the max it seems to stay there even after many presses of the illumination light, running the stop watch or radio control setting.
Highly recommend this watch.

I have had a Casio waveceptor watch for many years, but it expired recently so I bought a solar powered titanium 5161 replacement. My aim was essentially to get the same again only maybe a bit better. The new one is OK but it has a couple of defects for me, for whom the alarm functions are important. First, and most serious, the alarm is too faint for me to hear reliably. This wasnt the case with the old battery powered watch. Second it requires too many button presses to turn a particular alarm on and off. Once you reached alarm mode the old watch took one button press to toggle the current alarm on and off, the new one takes three, including one long one. Finally, the new watch doesnt have a snooze alarm, a feature that I used extensively on the old watch. I was tempted to send it back for the first of these reasons not really fit for purpose for me but having worn it for a day or so I didnt think Watchshop would take it so Ill live with it.

The new watch has some good points though: Its a bit lighter titanium, and it is easier to see the time in the dark the light works better.

Bought the CASIO WAVECEPTOR titanium alarm chronograph for my husband for Christmas though he hasnt seen it yet from what Ive seen is that it has no bulky buttons to irritate your wrist and it is very smart and classy looking, he wants a watch that is good at its job ie keeping good time, waterproof for in the shower, washing his hands without the hassle of having to keep taking it off each time and for going swimming. Hes an electrician so it also needs to be slim for when he is working and this just seems to be the perfect one. When it came I opened the box up and though it was in low light it immediately set the right time which was fascinating to watch and I have checked it a couple of times and it is perfectly set so cant wait to see his face on xmas morning going on my view of it I would recommend it to anyone who wants a watch that is not full of gimmicks that you probably wouldnt use

Beautiful looking watch - the black coloured face and titanium bracelet both lend themselves wonderfully to its smart appearance and its so light, I barely notice Im wearing it!
However, the analogue face is refusing every effort to synchronise with the digital time readout, and, given that my location in Aberdeen, Scotland is well within the range of the time calibration signal that emits from Anthorn, I find this disappointing. I already have a number of Wave Ceptor watches, but this is the first time Ive encountered this problem. Ive tried every solution the manual has to offer, but to no avail. So, unfortunately, its back to the shop for this particular model. A real shame, because in every other respect, its a stunning time piece. If it turns out just to be a rogue item that escaped quality control, then I would be tempted to get one again.

I wanted a watch that was always correct, that didnt have a dial cluttered with information that I would only use occasionally and didnt need battery replacement.
This fitted the bill precisely.
Its smart without being ostentatious, its a Waveceptor - so its always correct, solar powered with a rechargeable battery and a dial with a second hand so that the seconds are clearly visible.
Its got alarms and countdown timers and stopwatch facilities but they appear at the press of a button and do not clutter the display.
The strap is an improvement on the strap of my previous Casio watch because the segments now require a small tool provided to remove or insert them. My old strap on my previous watch had pins that could easily slip out. Not so with this new one.
At a very reasonable price, I am very pleased with my purchase. I would recommend it to anyone with the same requirements.

I had one of these watches before with the standard casing which started to look a bit tatty when the paint wore off the palstic that joins the watch body to the strap. The actual watch is the best I have ever had as the time is always accurate and it never needs a battery. I had the first one for many years and wore it for everything and it never let me down. The titanium version that I now own is even better as its so much lighter and there is no paint to rub off so it should keep its great appearance for years. Absolutely delighted!

An excellent watch. As soon as it came out of the box it set itself although it did have to discover how to set summer time. So far I havent tried the stopwatch, timer or alarms properly

The luminous hands are bright at night and lasts a long time. The light on the button goes off a bit quickly

The watch is a nice light weight. It looks good except for a grey plastic band that goes round the main body which does spoil the look. The strap is very easy to take links out, it comes with its own tool

This has to be one of the finest watches, in terms of technology, that is available. I only wish Casio made something similar for my wife, unfortunately they dont. I had an earlier version that was ten years old and the battery needed replacing as the analogue time would never match the digital time. Improvements on my old watch include designing an adjustable bracelet that anyone can adjust not just a shop, three buttons instead of four that are more logical to change modes, battery saving at night when the watch isnt moved, all the six time zones for the world atomic clocks, mineral glass instead of resin and a better led light. Typical Japanese iterative improvements. Ideally I would have preferred numbers and not just marks on the dial although I am getting use to this. The documentation doesnt exactly match what is needed for setting home time but you should be able to figure it out.
In my view the best gents watch available at any price, more accurate than a Rolex and much lighter as well. If you get worried about battery being low I charge mine if it hasnt had enough sun by putting under an LED desk lamp just half an inch from the dial Ė just twenty minutes is enough to go from mid to high battery level.

This is my second Casio Titanium, due to the face casing on my 3 year old one tarnishing. This newer model is not as stylish as the older version and feels cheaper but they keep perfect time and never need to replace batteries. I hope this one doesnt tarnish as I have been unable to get in touch with Casio to see if my old watch can be made over.

This is the best watch I have ever owned. It has a very clear dial and easy to read the day and date. No batteries to change. No fiddling with adjusting the date or time as its radio controlled and this will happen in several world wide countries.
One of the most useful features is that you are able to adjust the band yourself as the watch comes with a little, easy to use, cunning device that allows you to remove links in the wrist band.

Normally I donít write reviews for product purchased in internet but this time I will make exception:
1. Excellent service : I have placed the order on Saturday 11:55pm and received my watch on Monday morning 9:30am. Well done WATCHSHOP!!!
2. Watch is really nice and worth every penny. I was impressed with tool supplied by CASIO to adjust the bracelet 3minutes-and job done.
3. Automatic time adjustment works fine Brighton and watch will adjust automatically every night 2:02am.
4. Thinks to consider before purchasing:
Timer: maximum 100 minutes
Stop watch: maximum 60 minutes.
Alarm Ė will not wake you up not loud enough in my opinion
Plastic around the watch Ė almost not visible after a few hours of using.

Would I buy again? YES!

I have not been using watch since 15 years as I used to always find wrist watches heavier or even if lighter just wearing few minutes used to notice about having brick tied to my hand. I made couple approaches buying in these years, but always I was let down due to its weight when tried demo at any watch stores just also was budget conscious and the style. Later the smartphones came in and completely overridden my thought of wearing any watches. Well and not the least then came my wife and for 7 consecutive year she tired gifting me a watch on our anniversary and birthday and I used to always let her down saying, I might not wear the watches and instead have something else. This year I could not have any more excuses left to avoid watches as gift and finally had to accept the strong proposal of receiving it as a gift on my birthday or had to face the consequences, you know what I mean when you do not obey your wifeís orders 

But the I was been given permission to select the watch myself that I will then be receiving from my wife. She did mention to look from watchshop. So now you know how much I hated watches in recent years. Below helped me to change my perception as follows:

Firstly I was not happy to select this online as I would not be seeing it physically. But on watchshop website I found it easy and reliable to buy. As the product description were nicely arranged for most of the watches I was looking and the price being very competent to others and having range of stocks.

Coming back to the product I bought:

Mens Casio Waveceptor Titanium Alarm Chronograph Watch WVA-M640TD-1AER

We placed order last Saturday midnight and vola, we get an email saying on Sunday morning that this is now in dispatch queue and Monday first thing in morning I get it delivered by royalmail in hand. Was impressed with this speedy service. I buy plenty other things online and never had this exceptional scenario where I order something on weekends that is Saturday late night and still have it delivered on Monday.

I received this watch today and the packaging was great and moment I open the watch, I just fell in love with this watch. Casio has provided the peg remover tool and with it, it was easy to adjust the titanium strap in matter or few minutes. Very thought full Casio for this which saves lot of time going to watch shop for this and also the tool usability is very scratch less. Nice strap mechanism Casio.

Gosh this watch is superlight and I canít even feel I am wearing it. The dial looks very classy and features that comes with this watch are great. The automatic time adjustment function from the radio waves is a nice features and this watch sets it very accurately. As known the solar power this watch is powered with including rechargeable battery is awesome. Not to forgot this watch can hold the power for 4months when not used. The titanium case/strap looks posh on hands.

Sorry Casio, as this is water resistance, after receiving it today I have been wearing it all times even for my several bathroom approaches. Just loving it you see!

I donít think there is anything I dislike about this model, but just for sake of saying, the case come with bit grey colour plastic donít know if this is resin material this could have been not present, but still this cannot be noticed as the dial and remaining case material takes the precedence.

Really a lovely watch and recommended model and have to thank Casio and watchshop for bringing my interest back on wearing wristwatches after my 15 years.

Gone are the days when you want to know the time is to ask a policeman, unless he is wearing a Casio Waveceptor Chronograph watch WVA-M640TD-1AER. This the most amazing watch I have ever owned. It is very smart with an easy to read face that is not cluttered with dials as with other chronographs. It is solar powered so no more expensive batteries to replace. Lightweight because it is built of titanium. Exceptionally accurate as it radio controlled, mine updates the time daily at 2:03am. Automatically adjusts for 28/30 and 31 dated months as well as British Summer Time. What more can you want from a watch? This is the first time I have purchased a watch from WATCH SHOP and the experience has been excellent with regular updates of my purchase progress. I recommend Watch Shop most highly and will certainly use them again!

Good quality and value for money. Lightweight and smart looking. The plastic moulding for the radio receiver is hardly noticeable and does not detract from the appearance - and probably more durable than if disguised by a metal coating. Husband very pleased with the automatic date and BST functions - and solar-powered so NO BATTERIES to change! Just hope it doesnt need a replacement capacitor every couple of years like his previous much more expensive Seiko Kinetic.

Packaging was excellent and everything needed,links,tool and Operation Guide.

Hopefully I will receive some help when I send this.

I like the fact that the watch automatically updates to the correct time by radio link every night. This means that I never need to worry about leap years or chages to Summer time etc. The ease of adjusting to different time zones etc is useful both when I go abroad on holiday or to vist my son in Canada.

A very functional and attractive watch at a very reasonable price in comparison to many others on the market.

I was a bit concerned as to whether it would lose its charge but so far it seems to retain its full charge without any problem.

The radio aspect means you never have to alter it which is excellent.

Its also very smart and realtively light for quite a substantial watch.

This watch has a nice big face, nice big hands and a sweep second hand, so the watch is easy to read. The black face and steel watchstrap look good too.
The multi-use digital display is good for all the date/alarm etc functions you are likely to need.
The Waveceptor aligns itself by radio so it is always accurate no matter where you are. No more fiddling about when you fly to a different time-zone.
It charges itself by solar power, so you dont have to worry about batteries - ever.
It is water resistant to 10 atmospheres, so you can bathe, shower and snorkel with it.
All in all, a great watch.

To begin with this is my second Casio titanium watch and I am very pleased with it - I have it for more than 10 years and from what I remember I changed battery only once so far. The main feature that drives most people into buying titanium watches is the fact that their are extremely lightweight and also very comfortable compared to standard stainless steel watches. The WVA-M640TD-1AER weighs only 90 g which is about half the weight of an average steel chronograph.
Casio WVA-M640TD-1AER looks very simple and yet elegant which is perfect for everyday use. It will definitely fit any casual outfit including sportswear. I myself really like the clean design and the comfort this watch offers. What also impressed me is how quick and easy the length corrections of the titanium band are made thanks to a small plastic device that is included in the package. It took me literally 2-3 minutes to adjust the preferred length on my watch.
Please note that this review is also published in our blog at TestProductReview so you can find more details about the Wave Ceptor WVA-M640TD-1AER there.

With a stainless strap that is smart whilst not being too chunky or heavy, along with an easy to see black face and contrasting hands, it is easy to read in all lights. The watch has many functions that will prove useful, but the most significant features to me are that it is solar powered, with a long lasting back up battery, and is waterproof. It is very light to wear, and I feel comfortable wearing it in any situation - evenings, golf, beach or pool. I am very pleased with it.

The radio time setting works perfectly. And it wears well as a dress watch with my work clothes. I have not used the stopwatch function but it looks ok. You can choose digital time or date on the small screen. The downside is that the clock looks a bit cheap in the dark with the light on. Overall I am very happy with the purchase

Had one of these Casio waveceptor watches before and it was disappointing. Generally took a week or so to adjust after the spring and autumn time changes and then ended up showing completely random times!
So, when the watch turned up an hour out I did think, no not again. But, having adjusted the home city the hands moved straight away to reflect the right time.
Only time will tell of course.....
Attractive and not too chunky and surprisingly light, which is a plus point, and with this type of watch theres no knobs which invariably would otherwise dig into your wrist.
Its plenty wide enough to accommodate the larger wrists though it does come with a handy tool so you can remove links very easily.
Would I recommend? At this point yes. Hope I can say that in a year or so time....

I was looking for a good looking , radio controlled, multifunction watch, and my wife found this watch online. It seemed to fit the bill, it was less expensive than similar watches with the same specs. After studying the reviews on various websites, not just the Watchshop!, we decided this was the one.
On receipt, after quick delivery, we put it through its paces. It passed all tests apart from the alarm section. If anyone is going to buy this watch for use as an alarm watch, then forget it!! It has five different alarm options and none of them would wake you or catch your attention as a reminder, even if you had the watch on your ear. The alarm is NOT a wakeup alarm.I have mine set to beep on the hour, and i probably hear only one a day........... Apart from that , it is a great watch, and am well pleased with it.

I bought this watch on the strength of its specification and personal reviews of others.

I have to say that I was not disappointed when my watch arrived. It is stylish and not too chunky looking for a watch of this size. Also because of its titanium construction it is reasonably light as well and feels comfortable on my wrist.
The size of the instruction booklet was a bit intimidating but I managed to set up my watch without too much difficulty.
I like the way that it is so easy to adjust the length of the strap.I have adjusted it several times before settling on the ideal compromise between neat fit and looseness.

Now for my slight gripes about this watch.
I think the length of the minute hand should be slightly longer and or also increase the length of the minute markers on the watch face to enable easier reading of the time to the exact minute. A watch face similar to the one employed on the much more expensive Omega Speed master would be better.

Thats about it. I would give the watch a score of 96 out of 100.

I was looking specifically for an analogue watch with a clear date and day, and stopwatch and time facilities, and preferably a good metal bracelet. My search led me quickly to this Waveceptor watch, which also has solar power, accuracy guaranteed by daily radio signal and easy ability to change time zones. I couldnt believe my luck in finding this one at a very reasonable price - and noting all the good reviews.

I have not been disappointed. i was anxious at first about the thickness spec said12mm but it seems much less than that. It is not a small watch, but extremely elegant and comfortable to wear and to use. Worth while paying extra for the titanium version. Strongly recommended.

I bought it click-and-collect at a Goldsmiths shop, which worked very well and they were extremely helpful, changing the bracelet length but it is very eady with the enclosed tool anyway

The watch was bought as a surprise gift for my husband, for all his help during the summer taking me all over the southern half of the UK to Lawn Bowls matches and competitions. I was elected to the presidency of Bowls Oxfordshire Ladies Bowling Association and in conjunction with Friends of English Bowling whose aim is to support Bowls England I completed 85 bowls matches during the summer. Now I have been invited to a number of Bowls Luncheons and Dinners at which I will be expected to make a speech. At one particular Luncheon the Bowls Oxfordshire Ladies Bowling Association I will be giving gifts to all my executives and all those who assisted me in the past year, this is where the watch comes in. My husband has a number of watches and as I had seen him looking at the Casio displays in our local jewellers shops, I thought it would be a good idea to purchase a good quality watch for him. As the Watch Shop was recently advertised on TV I used your website to purchase what turned out to be a good value item especially as priced against the same item in our jewellers. The gift will be presented to him on Saturday 18th October 2014, which is why at this stage there will be no photographs of the watch being worn.

Excellent watch bought to replace a 10-year old similar model which is still working perfectly but I just fancied a fresher model. Titanium construction makes for an incredibly light and comfortable watch. Backlight much improved over previous model - it would be even better if it stayed on a few seconds longer, but I guess this is to maximize battery life.

Purchased this watch to replace a well worn Rotary waterproof watch, which I had to change the date when I remembered. After looking long and hard, I found this beautiful, simplistic looking dial staring at me. It is everything I have wanted in a watch, uncluttered face which can be seen in the dark, minimal operation of buttons to access and set alarms, timer or stop watch functions and the date changes automatically, Great!
It worked correctly as soon as I lifted it out of the box, the one thing I did have to do was change from 12hour to 24hour format, My preference.
Even the bracelet adjustment is simple to do, which one can replace if it becomes too tight.
A beautiful timepiece, I cannot fault it.

Bought this watch to wear at work. Very impressed so far. The watch has a nice sized and very clear face,very good functions,led back light and solar power. The strap is very simple to size using the supplied tool why other makes cannot do this I dont know once adjusted it is very comfortable and extremely light to wear,it remains to be seen how the titanium and face stand up to some work punishment but so far seems a very good buy.

Have another waveceptor watch that I bought from the watch shop a cheaper one
but it has always kept perfect time and the new one will be the same I am sure. You can look at both watches side by side and the seconds tick by exactly the same on both and does not vary - excellent. Some people pay thousands for a timepiece that is no more accurate, and this watch looks smart enough to wear on any occasion. Its also solar powered so no more battery change worries.

Excellent product purchased to replace a similar model that is now showing signs of age but still working exceptionally. The finctions are clear and I am sure this watch will give me years of good service. I found it to be competively priced and gives me the benefits of a radio signal to keep exact time and solar charging which means no battery replacement. The bracelet adjustment tool was excellent and made alteration very simple. I would recommend this product to others

Bought this to replace a watch I has been using for many years and wanted something that was easy to use and smart without being too flashy. I am really pleased with it. It is packed with useful features such as stop watch, 5 alarms, countdown timer, world time etc. But for me the best features are...
The clear dial - both digital and analogue are very easy to read
Solar powered so no need to worry about the battery running out
Radio signal time setting so always showing the correct time and easily changed to pick up international signals when abroad.
The hands and hour marketed are also very luminous which is an unexpected bonus
It is also very light on the wrist and looks great.
My only complaint would be that the light doesnt start on quite as long as I would like but this really is a very minor niggle.
For the price I dont think I could have got a better watch.

Very fast delivery. Superb packaging. Before I had removed the watch from its inner plastic bag, the hands were turning backwards at a high speed to set at the exact time. This was impressive. The adjustment of the watch strap to suit my wrist, was effected in a couple of minutes with the best adjustment system I have ever experienced. So far I am delighted with my purchase and have no reason to believe this should change. Highly recommended watch and excellent service from WATCHSHOP.

What can I add to what has already been said about this watch, it looks good, feels good, keeps perfect time and has other useful features such as alarms, it has a clear dial which can be read in all light conditions.
I do have a problem with the bracelet as I have a very thin wrist and large hands so I have been unable to get the fit I would like but thats a personal problem rather than a fault.

Ive only had this watch a week or so.
I really like the functionality. The time keeping is great, the solar power should be good - no more new batteries, the little LCD display is handy and the alarm and light will also be useful. I particularly like that the LCD and the hands are always properly coordinated - I still get a bit of childish pleasure when the second hand whizzes around when it wakes up in the morning.
It also looks quite nice and stylish in a low key way and is comfortable to wear. It is a bit lighter than I expected which makes it feel a bit cheap though. I suppose this does make it more comfortable.
The one downside is that it is getting scratched already. Particularly on the outside of the strap where it rests on the table or brushes against things. This leaves me slightly concerned about its lifespan but it is rather early days so I wont be too harsh.

This Casio watch is truly amazing. The first thing of note was the lack of weight of the whole watch, due to the use of titanium. It makes the watch very comfortable. I have only had the watch for a couple of weeks but, so far, it has shown no problems, keeps perfect time and the solar battery works fine. So, providing it carries on in the same vein it will amount to an excellent purchase and a watch I would have no hesitation in recommending to other people.

Been thinking about getting a watch for quite a while and was after something that looked quite simple and wasnít too big. Unfortunately most of the ones I saw that I liked seemed to be in the £2000-£3000 bracket which is a bit beyond me. My girlfriend then ordered a couple of watched for me to look at as an anniversary present and I found I really liked this one. Itís a nice clear, simple design but that hides plenty of functionality without the clutter of a chronograph. I like the fact that itís solar powered and radio controlled so thereís never any worry about changing the battery and having not worn a watch for many years the low weight means it isnít too much of a change wearing it. Lastly the ease of being able to alter the strap by removing links with the little tool provided is a job that takes seconds and is excellent. Overall very happy.

Themail watch watchell protected in its original box. The instructions are in the usually small book/font, but are straight forward and clear. The metal bracelet was very easy to adjust with the included tool. The watchface is large, clean and uncluttered yet has a sophistication about its appearance. It is very light to wear. It had no problem picking up a time signal. Being solar powered means I never have to.be worrying about batteries and is always telling the right time thanks to being a waveceptor watch. It has useful features such as alarm, timer, stop watch,battery indicator and world time. I can also go snorkeling. I would have liked a more scratch resistant face, but I cant have everything.

Nice watch, extremely lightweight. Love the accuracy & the features. Other reviewers didnt like the yellow backlight, but I think it suits the black face & I was pleasantly surprised to see the whole face light up. Also, other reviewers have mentioned the plastic around the watch, but I dont find it offensive.

On the negative side, the large scale picture on the Watchshop website picks up some textured detailing in the centre of the watchface. This is not visible in reality. If I had seen the watch beofre purchasing I may have bought the blue face watch instead, which is slightly cheaper. Having said that I still like the look of the watch.

I was looking for a top quality replacement for my existing watch. I looked at the many options for Waveceptor watches and this one was ideal for me. It has a really clear watch face, a good back light and the added extras of alarms and a stopwatch if required.

The watch is for me and I indulged myself by selecting the titanium strap version. Im really please that I did. I was worried I wouldnt be able to adjust the strap but it is really easy with the supplied gadget.

A great watch, with 3 strap options for those on a tighter budget.

As an owner of other radio controlled watches I would have to say this watch takes some beating. My two other RC watches were three times the price of this watch and havent got as many extras. Where do I start?
Multi frequency RC controlled, on manual recall didnt need to place watch near window found signal after 1.54 minutes much quicker than my £560 watch. Searches for signal up to six times my other watches only twice.
The other good thing about this watch is that on manual recall only second hand moves to find time, minute and hour hand carry on telling you the time, on my more expensive model everything has to revert back to 12 oclock position and will only go forward to find correct time ? This watch when I got it out of box was set to Paris so when home city was changed to London the watch actually wound the hour and minute hand backwards brilliant battery saving feature.
To summarize, if you want a Rolls Royce at a family saloon price you wont be disappointed, looks good as well.

Really liked my original and wondered how this new one would compare. I wanted some of the same features such as Solar movement, analog and digital plus wanted to add radio accuracy. Its early days but I am pleased with the new time piece.
Its light on the wrist, good - looking and easy to use the functions once you memorise what the three buttons control. It also feels durable which is great for my line of work. I particularly liked the ease of adjusting the strap using the little tool supplied.

This is a beautifully crafted watch. I am replacing an earlier model and found that this watch has a crisp look and a really intuitive operation. Best of all it was easily set up to lock on to the radio time signal. The watch hands can drive forward or backwards at speed when it is setting its time. Better than earlier versions that only ran forwards. Once set, it is accurate to the second. The watch strap was very clever as it comes with a simple to use handy tool to remove links to get it to fit my wrist. I thought Id have to got to a jeweller.

The ability to compare watches was simple and perfect for refining what we were specifically needed, a radio controlled watch. Elsewhere they was a very poor selection, if any at all. There were so many more to choose from on the Watchshop site.

The watch arrived ahead of expectations and was easy to adjust the strap ourselves.

Will definitely visit WatchShop

Replacement for a 3 year old WVA-430TE older model of same watch. Only replaced this because the old one was getting a bit tatty where the paint had rubbed off the shoulders new watch band is titanium right up to the case of the watch so will not have the same problem. Only bit I dont like about it is you can see the case is part resin because of the light grey band - but if you want an all titanium case, Casio do several of them in the same waveceptor range, but they are about £150 more.

It is easier to set up than the old one, and the radio-controlled bit works across Europe, China/Japan and the US old one was only UK, and you had to rely on standard quartz timing for the rest of the world, but mine did travel to NZ, USA, with me, with no problem.

Big clear display, and the light now lights up the whole analogue display, really cool. Also in spite of warnings to wear it outside your sleeve, recharge in daylight, I live in Yorkshire, a place of little sunshine, and the old one never actually needed topping up so the battery copes just fine. It also does DST automatically in more cities than it used to.

The watch is well made, clear display, I know Casio are synonymous with plastic complicated watches, but it looks really classy. It is always accurate new and old watches still display the same time to the exact second, never needs a new battery - whats not to like?

Photo is of old and new watches together. Partly to show you that even after 3 years heavy use, even the old one still looks pretty good.

I opted for the titanium style which is very light in weight and a nice grey colour. When I unpacked it the watch immediately set itself to Paris time but a quick check of the manual and I was able to set it to London. I wanted a watch that was analogue time and shows day and date digitally. The first time the watch hibernated at night was a bit disconcerting but now I dont even realise it has done that. Overall very pleased with the watch removing links was easy. Because I went for the titanium the plastic in the cassis barely noticeable.

This is about the lightest watch I have had for many years. At 66 grams it is much lighter than my previous Seiko. I think Titanium is the way forward.

I really like the way the edges of the bracelet are rounded to remove the sharp edges which can destroy shirt cuffs in no time!

The slightly larger black face is really easy to read. I am still trying to get to grips with all the other features which this watch has. I think it is fantastic value for money.

The fact that it is swimproof and will never need batteries, or adjusting to the correct time is a major bonus to me.

Bought this watch for my boyfriend. He absolutely loved it! We got pretty excited when we saw how the watch sets itself. So, you will always have the correct time due to the watch checking it in accordance with your time zone. It charges from the sun, which is also quite convenient, as it will never run out of battery if you charge it appropriately, and goes into an energy saving mode when its dark.
Overall a nifty gadget, A+++++
one thing, the bracelet is pretty big, so if you have a thin wrist, youll need to take some segments off.

Great watch, lightweight easy functions, easy strap adjustment, looks great very pleased. The solar charging means no battery replacment which means that the people who replace battles cant mess up the seal as has happened in the passed, And saves me £10 a year.

The delivery was fast. The watch was well described and really what I wanted. A light watch of titanium, with only the features I want in a watch. not a full computer Water resistant down to 100m so I can properly swim and bath with it.
I really like this watch.

Ist class service by the watch shop . The watch was delivered with the wrong time so I called in the shop in reading and the girls promptly changed the time .
The watch is very light ideal for everyday use . I have more expensive watches that are to heavy for daily use . It looks more expensive than I paid for it . Overall very happy with the watch & service

Very pleased with the watch. I bought this model for work. With previous watches I was fed up with changing the battery or checking the time was accurate. No worries now. As detailed in the manual I placed the watch in the sun for a day and thats it fully charged. Checked the next day to make sure the time sync had run, perfect. In fact when I travel on the train, the platform seconds are in sync with the watchs second hand. My only minor criticism is the watch strap is a little tinny but hey it looks good, and does everything else well :

I took hours to research the market for radio controlled watches. I wanted one that could withstand vigorous swimming, has a clear, large date display, alarm, light and is easy to use. There are not many on the market that have all these features but the Casio gives me everything I wanted and at a good price. It also looks great and is surprisingly light and quite thin. So far, so good. Thoroughly recommended.

The watch was presented to me as a Christmas present so I cant review it properly until after Christmas. From a superficial examination it appears that the length of the strap has not been set to that requested but a special tool to assist me to get it done has been included. I also note that the watch appears to be set to European time. As I shall be moving to Southport, Merseyside next week it would be helpful to learn whether there is a recommended retailer in that town. More anon when I am able to use the watch for the first time.
