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

Having owned this watch for almost two years, I wanted to update my old review. I guess this model is not available anymore but my point is that my review might help others considering buying waveceptor watch from Casio.

I bought the watch for the radio waveceptor function and it has let me down twice in two years. The first time round Watch shop guys were very prompt and got it repaired under waranty which is excellent, and as it is still not two years yet, I am hoping that the Watch shop guys will sort it this time.

Hope I got a faulty piece, my bad.

Well, before anything else, this watch is gorgeous. While selecting watch for myself, I did several comparisons with other watches with similar features. I had shortlisted this watch and a couple of eco-drive watches; however the equivalent feature set for eco-drive is expensive than this. This is my first solar powered radio-controlled watch and I can not complain on anything. The manual is descriptive enough and after spending 30 mins, I was able to setup my watch and learn about its operations like timer, stop-watch, setting the world city, checking if the last signal reception was successful, if the alarm is ON or OFF, etc.
The bazel and dial of the watch are beautifully clear to read. The Watch appears to have 3 layers and you can really see the depth of the dial. The 4 buttons to control the watch are well set and their functions are pretty straightforward, easy to understand from well written manual. After a couple of days of use, I no more refer to manaul as everything is clear now.
When I got the watch, its timezone was set to Hong Kong. The first thing manual tells you to do is to set the correct city (which is London in my case) and prepare the watch for manual signal receiving to precisely set itself in terms of day/date/time which I did. It took approximately 4 mins for the watch to recieve its radio signal and it adjusts the day/ date/time automatically. I was amazed to see what a great piece of engineering this is.
This watch looks great with any attire. I am using this watch for daily use and it already caught eye of my office collegues and friends.
I am using the timer and alarm mode of the watch regularly and it works very well.
The two circular and a semi- circular dial of the watch looks very nice. The overall look and feel of the watch is very satisfactory for the price you pay for it.
Overall, I am greatly satisfied and quite happy on my decision of buying this watch.

I've bought it especially for the solar power and radio controller features. I expected to fell it heavier but surprisingly has an optimized weight. Once it's setup all the modifications to hour, date and day will be automatic. I picked this model and not the M1100 version because it's showing the day of the week also. For sure has more futures than I need at the moment but have not seen another one that looks so stylish as this one when I decided to buy it.

I just received this watch.It is a great watch,good smart looking watch to wear.It has lots of great feautures as a watch.
I like the great look and the presentation box it comes with .
I only have a problem with it,It keeps showing me the wrong day but the correct date.
Before buying this I researched at lots of watches with different prices.There are watches with higher prices but no better than this.The look , the style the cool colors and all the feautures it has makes it better.
Perhaps you are thinking about buying a citizen but maybe you end up spending much more but not getting exactly what you want.
If you wanna spend a few quid more buy the m1100 model which is better than this but not a big difference
If I did not have the wrong day problem with this watch I would rate it as Excellent.

Casio Edifice is an excellent watch that I have ever come across in my Life. There is no word to express Its magnificent look and design, where the technology has been incorporated in this watch is astonishing one.

The time setting in this watch in innovative which adjusting itself automatically via radio wave around the world is excellent and accurate.

The scratch proof dial, glow of radium, steel strap and the concept of 5 individual motors designed in a peculiar way which makes the watch brilliant piece of art work.

Wave captor, multi band 5 and tough solar the features you love it.

It is different when you see; only if you wear this watch you will feel the greatness of the master piece from Casio desk of edifice, which standalone in the world of watches. I like this watch soooo much!!

There are no words to express its magnificent look, design and technology.

Without second thought, daringly purchase the watch and wear it on hand, only you will realize the advanced technology, feel and pride.!

I really like this watch. It is a nice size and weight and looks pretty cool. The radio controlled time setting is fantastic and the solar charging feature likewise. My only gripe is the small am/pm dial at the bottom is too small to be easily read but completes the look of the watch. I have MS but still found the buttons easy to use and most of the features straightforward.
A lovely watch.

Well what I can add that the other 51 reviews havent? Its a tough ask, but the fact there are 51 reviews should tell you something. I am a Formula One fan and of all the watch sponsors Casio are probably the one brand most everyday people can actually afford. The Edifice range are all based on speed hence the F1 link and you can cetainly see this looking at the striking dial layout. There are three inner dials, the first allows you to select the various modes, Stopwatch, Countdown Timer and Alarm, the second shows world time in the city you choose from those around the besel, the third shows the time in 24hrs and too me looks like a brake disc. Of all the functions I have so far only really used the alarm, but this does the job and is plenty loud enough to wake me up. I do have a dedicated alarm, but where I live we are prone to power cuts, so having this function give me some peace of mind that I wont be late in the mornings. The red on black seen on the dial work a treat and those two colours always seem sporty to me, then you have the date at 7 o'Clock, unusual but cool. The strap feels very solid and fits very well once adjusted. When you get this watch there is some setup required and this took me around 30mins. You have to select your home city, check the hands are all in sync and then get that all important atomic time signal, then you are good to go. I brought this watch to wear on a day to day basis in and out of the office and I think it perfoms this task really well, doesnt look out of place no matter where you wear it. For me I prefer the look of this watch to the newer M1100DB and thats what made me go for his watch in the Edfice range, plus I can say I have a watch linked to the Red Bull F1 team. I have to say to anyone reading this you will not be disapointed if you order this watch, it looks fantastic. I cannot really say anything bad about the watch, apart from the fact I miss an hourly chime, but thats something I can live without. The value for money cannot be beaten and I will certainly be keeping tabs on the Edfice range in the future.

I have been doing my own little research to buy a watch when my faithful Casio had its last lap and I must confess there are many models and makes to choose from. All I wanted was a watch which has waveceptor, solar power, day and date with world time functions in a moderate price range (ok, I agree it is a relative term) and this watch fits the bill.
To be honest, there are many reviews on this model which were very helpful and I will not go in any more detail, but what I really want to talk is a about Watchshop. Their website is excellent with all details such as measurements of the model and helpful reviews. They offer the best price when compared to other retailers. They have kept me informed from the very moment I placed my order with minute by minute details of the transit and I had the delivery the very next day. They also offer to adjust the strap to size and if you are not sure, you can get it done at Timpsons and the £5 would be refunded.
About the watch itself, I have a very small wrist and I was worried that the watch might be a tad too much, but to my surprise, it is a very nice model with excellent finish and look without coming across as a massive piece on the wrist . I am uploading a picture with a ruler in the image to help people note the size and put things into perspective. Yes, the 24 hr function dial is very small and the numbers are not that clear, but other functions are very clear and easy to setup. I am happy with the purchase and hope other folk would find the same.

First of all: the true beauty of this watch cannot be caught on photo! (I tried for hours)



This watch is beautiful and stylish. The special design makes it look high-tech and the different colors of the parts match each other excellently as well as the green glow of the luminescent hands and markings around the dial.

This watch has all features most people need, stopwatch, alarm, timer and world time etc.

To set the date and year was a bit tricky but you only have to do that once so it’s not a problem.

All the features are, however, easy to use.

To set home town or world time you just press a button to cycle between the different cities listen on the dial. You can also cycle between your home time and the world time which is great for people who travel to a particular country often.

Another great thing is that the watch is solar powered which means you never have to replace the battery.

I have not used the wave ceptor technology because the signal don’t reach me (I live in the middle of Sweden)



Finally: this watch is, according to me, the coolest watch in this price category and is has a high quality feeling, great design, good features and a reasonable price. It looks much better in reality than on any photo you will ever see. You won’t be disappointed with it!

This watch is really magnificent, it works on solar power and it's radio controlled. This means that you don't have to worry about time keeping any more! It charges it self for a really short time and syncs it self with the atomic click which is fantastic. This model is very eye-caching especially the 'multilayer' design of the face and that gives him a nice, luxurious look. The strap is nice although it could be more rich in texture and design. And the one thing I don't like in the design is that there isn't a middle button or so called crown it would give the watch better more common look for analog watches. Like this with four symmetrical buttons it reminds me more to digital (cheaper) watches.



The size is very good not to big and not bulky at all, as you can see from the picture. Also the weight is not noticeable at all, it feels normal and anatomical.



It's functionality is great, all the hands are readable, even the date numbers. I like the timer mode very much since the second hand is going backwards which is very cool and unusual.



And of course my location. I live in Macedonia (1300 km) from the atomic clock signal and I can only synchronize it at night (after 19:00) when the signal is stronger. But at least it syncs and it's very very accurate. The time from dispatch till delivery was 5 days including the weekend.



Cheers!

Hi!



Prons:

1) The watch is exacly as its description on watchshop website

2) Looks just amazing, much better in real than on photos - makes impression, believe me

3) I have small wrist 16 cm - i was worry that might look too big on my hand. It was only my wrong prediction. Look ideal, don't listen people who write that its too big and too heavy. Proper mens watch

4) Instruction easy to follow - to spend 20-30 min

5) perfect watch under £200, i spent few days to find the best avaiable watch on the market - with alarm, stoper, timer, world time, date, tachymeter, wave rec., solar power and wr100m.

6) Alarm sound is loud enough to wake you up, not like in some other wathes

7) Sport mix with business - that its pure right description



Cons:

6) I'm missing just hourly chime, single button push sound

7) Snooze function would be nice adiction

Like you see basiclly cons things are that which included in digital watches so nothin much really.



This casio is just masterpiece. Go for it if you looking for multi band function, amazing design and really good fit for small wrists.

Firstly, this is a beautiful watch. So nice to look at. The dials and detail are amazing, fantastic engineering.



It's weight is slightly heavy compared to other watches, but with the tech in this watch, you won't be bothered. Plus once it's been on your wrist for a couple of days you won't notice.



The strap is very nice, brushed finish, with a push clasp. Feels very secure and robust.



Some customers have said that setting it up is tricky. They obviously never flicked through the instructions where a leaflet reads "Before you use this watch, specify the city code you live in, and perform a manual calibration signal receive". That's it, nothing else required.



The watch will automatically receive the correct time up to 6 times between midnight and 6am. If you keep the watch locked away at night, a manual receive is simple to do.



The solar panel works best in bright sun-light, but even light through a window will charge it, and on a full charge it will last 5 months. It even has a power saving mode that makes the second hand sleep when the watch senses it's dark.



This wave ceptor is new to me, and I like it a lot. I know that my watch will always be accurate with atomic clocks, to the second. This technology also sets up the date and day on the watch.



The stop watch is very cool to watch with the left dial showing 1/20 second count and the right dial elapsed time in minutes. Other functions include a daily alarm and a timer. The world-time function lets you display the 24hr time in any of 29 selectable countries and swap between this and your home-time.



I can't really think of anything I don't like about this watch. The second hand seems to be ever so slightly off with the second hand markings, but this is a tiny imperfection.



Overall, a extremely good looking, feature rich watch, with solar and radio technology making it a fantastic buy.

Firstly, this is an excellent watch - it always keeps exact time, never needs a new battery, and has a stopwatch, count-down timer, and daily alarm - what more could anyone ask?



But since there are now several watches like this, here are a few points to consider before buying this one (especially when shopping over the net):



1 Although not particularly bulky, it is quite heavy - it weighs 156 grams (or 5.5 ounces). I was worried by this when I first picked it up - but after a day of wearing it, I personally no longer noticed the weight.



2 Some advertising literature says it has a 'battery level indicator', and I chose this particular watch for that reason. It doesn't. What it has is an indication that the battery is getting critically low - the second hand goes round in two-second jumps. Certainly better than nothing, but not as good as I had expected.



3 Beware of this product if your wrist changes in size a lot, between hot and cold weather. The 'customer adjustment' on the strap is about 3mm - if you want to change it more, you'll need to add or remove a link. This can only be done at a repair shop, at the cost of about £5.



4 Inevitably, the writing on the dial is extremely small - you'll need good close-range vision (and the right lighting) to see what the day is! The day/mode display is also quite confusing, with the marker for the stopwatch mode appearing between'Friday and 'Saturday'.



5 Although it has all the features listed above (and several more), using them is quite complex. The instructions are clearly written - but you'll have to carry them with you (or use the features very regularly) to remember how to use them when you need them. I'm not looking forward to changing the local time the next time I step off an international flight...



If points 4 or 5 are a concern for you, it might be worth considering a watch that has an analogue display to show the time, plus a digital one to access the other features.

After looking for watches with a nice design, i finally decided for a Casio Edifice and the M1000DB. Here in Sweden the watch costs about twice as much, therefore i ordered it from watchshop. It think it was a really nice deal and i am really saticfied with the watch.



The watch looks exactly like the picture, and the review by watchshop on youtube was really helpful! It doesn´t just looks great but is also very comfortable on the wrist (i like the weight, almost 200grams). The design with the dial in "3D" is very unusual wich is nice, and the watch has many features like stopwatch, timer, world time etc.



Setting the watch for homecity was easy and it´s nice to have a watch that always shows the correct time(radiocontrolled) and never has to change battery because of the solar power system.

If you like the design of this watch i can really recomend it!

This watch is quite stylish yet sporty to look at. The Chronoraph watch is in "3D" which means that it was introduced simultaneously with the 2009 movie Avatar. If you look at it, the watch it self looks like it has three individual layers.





Some of the cool features is that the watch is powered by solar energy. The face of the watch is a solar cell that harness the light from the sun into a rechargeable battery, that powers the watch operations. In theory this means that the watch could stay functional up to 10 years or so. Other cool features is that the watch pick up radio-controlled time signals from atomic clocks in Anthorn UK, Mainflingen Germany, Fort Collins, Colorado, USA and Fukuoka/Saga and Fukushima Japan and last from Shangqui China. This means that the watch should always show the correct time. If not you can also set the time and date manually. The watch can also show the time in other 29 cities and countries around the world. Quite useful if you are business man or always on the go.



The sad part about this otherwise beautiful watch (and other Casio wave ceptor) is that the watch can seem VERY complicated to set or operate. So if something doesn't seem to work or function you would have to look into the manual



So if you have to go abroad for business or pleasure you would have to take the THICK manual with you to set the time correctly in accordance to the place or city you are in.



Other things is that the metal band or strap is so big that you have to chop off half of the metal band/strap



So do I regret the buy??? NO ABSOLUTELY NOT...I still LOVE the technological marvel piece of watch

Watch is fantastic -nice look and good solid feel on wrist without being too heavy. The functions took a little getting used to but that's half the fun. The watch is a technological marvel and it puzzles me how it does so much for the price. Don't expect to use the functions in low light as the writing is rather small. My friend has a £1400 Tag and I feel this watch is better in every way.

Amazing watch. Looks great and good weight to it. Bracelet might scratch a little easily but it's meant to be worn. A lot features that I have yet to fully explore. Like the matted colour of the bracelet. My everyday watch.

First of all, I was amazing by the fast shipping from the UK to the States. I'm in Utah and the watch made it to my door step in one week from the time I place the order on the website. Excellent service and the transaction was a smooth as can be through PayPal with the exchange rate. Shipping was very reasonable. I wouldn't hesitate to order anything from Watch Shop. Clearly a class act all the way.



I'm very happy with the EQW-M1000DB-1AER. It's a great looking watch and the features are just what I was looking for. Great looks with all the tech features. I live close to Ft. Collins, so synching with the Ft. 60hz transmissions works very well here in Utah. It's hard to come up with any complaint on this watch. I did my research and I knew what I was getting. I downloaded the manual before hand and read it a couple of times so setting things up and working through the features was not an issue. It's really not that bad to understand how all the features work. The sub dials are small, but that comes with the territory with a watch like this. I really like the fact that there are 5 motors in this watch to work all the functions.



I think the only thing I can complain about is that I wish the bad was just a little more refined for this price range. It's not bad, but I do wish the clasp was a little more refined and it would be nice if the pins didn't go all the way up to the body of the watch with each link. Usually when you get to this price range, the pins are sealed on the links closest to the body. Still this is a nit pick more than anything.



Great watch, great price from the Watch Shop, fast shipping... well packaged and delivered!



Without getting into the Oceanus line of Casio, I think this is the best looking Casio you can pick up right now.



You won't be disappointed with this watch!

After looking at about a million different watches I settled on this one. I was a little hesitant at first since other Casio watches I have owned in the past have a plastic quality which I wanted to avoid this time around. What appealed to me most was the idea of a watch that doesn't need battery replacement (or at least for a very long time) and more importantly one that keeps perfect time.



After the initial set up which took about 15 minutes, the watch was super accurate. I know this as I dialled the speaking clock and it was absolutely spot on, and I don't mean close, I mean completely bang on the pips signal! This is very reassuring since every other watch I've ever owned drifts a little, you forget to correct it, then before long you're late for a train (for example) and you look at your watch and think at the back of your thoughts "how far out is that?" No more! With this watch you are effectively carrying around a reflection of the most accurate clocks in the world.



The watch is very solidly made with a "mineral glass" which is scratch resitant. The bracelet is stainless steel and is very comfortable. I ordered from The Watch Shop UK and they do the adjustment for you before shipping. I'm not used to wearing this size of watch (I normally go for watches in the 6-8mm thickness range) so again I was a little hesitant, but it's not a problem at all - I soon forget its on my wrist - very comfortable. Also, this is the first time I've worn a steel braclet (I normally go for leather) but after some consideration I think this is a healthier option since you can wash the bracelet and it doesn't wear out like leather.



Casio have obviously upped their game in terms of the quality and look of their watches, since this looks, feels and operates like an expensive luxury watch. The dial is beautifully laid out and I find is very clear and easy to read. I know some other reviews have said it's a bit difficult to read but I think it will only be the case for those with eyesight problems.



I haven't explored all the functions of the watch yet, but you can track world time, stopwatch, countdown, alarm. There is no backlight, but parts of the face are luminous allowing you to see the time at night.



All in all, very happy with my purchase. The watch was delivered within a couple of days - I ordered at 6pm and it was there the day after at 9am - that's excellent service considering the bracelet adjustment.



Thank you, Watch Shop UK and Casio for a super fine watch!

This watch is an excellent product. I can not commend it to anyone higher. The build quality is fantastic with a very solid and sturdy finish.it's not going to break easily :) it has a comforting, if slightly heavy weight and a very comfortable feel to it. The instructions are easily followed and it is a great product.

Perfect watch. Saw it in a newspaper advert for the Red Bull racing team and thought 'WOW' The watch looks great and feels great on the wrist - substantial but not too heavy. Setting calibration, for radio controlled reception, is a doddle, but READ THE MANUAL for the procedure to follow

I've had this watch for a little over a week now and the only time it's off my wrist is when I go to bed (or washing). I went for the waveceptor as I have a couple of Casios already and this one is a bit smaller than the Pro-Trek I last bought. I was looking for something classy and not garish and this fit the bill. One of the more visible features is the countdown timer - invisible being solar powered and radio time setting - brilliant for Pot Noodles 2 min timings :)

I was looking for this watch on different UK web sites for about 6 months, and this was the most reliable and cheapest i found. Spot on delivery, in fact the delivery came in within 15 hours. Well packed and secured. Infact the service i got have earned WatchsShop a permanent customer.



And about the watch: absolute stunner. Everything about it, is class. The style, functions, accuracy, looks, weight and size.

Bottom line: worth each pound.

An excellent watch !

It weighs right, feels right, and seems (and is !) really solid !



The Radio function works great, and catchs signal, even when my citizen AT skyhawk has hard time finding it.

The little rotating disc as a functions dysplayer, and 10ths of seconds counter, is a great concept, which adds this watch a "techno" personnality.



Not to forget the wonderful 3D dial, with the gap in outer layers, to show the glass fiber of the inner layer.

The Lume is really really bright, but as most luminova, doesn't last the whole night.... (3/4th of it)

some can have difficulties to read time, at beginning, due to the great amount of infos dysplayed, but once you get used to it, this watch is a piece of pure fun, and a real beauty.

Good looking watch. Good design, many features, however not all these features are easy to use because the instructions are not that clear on the manual and the read out from the 3 small dials on the watch are too small to make out clearly at a glance.

Do like the fact that its solar powered, don't have to worry about changing the battery. It didn't take long to get fully charged, just a few hours from normal daylight and since then it has remained fully charged.

The alarm feature on the watch is pretty loud..for a watch.

So to summarise nice looking watch, but features like stopwatch, timer and world time are not easy to read on the watch.

Decided to buy this watch after looking at a number of models/makes. The watch is excellent quality and looks and feels more expensive than it is.



Everything works as described but the size of the embossing and smaller dials make it difficult to realistically use all the functionality that the watch has on a regular basis.



The atomic time reception is excellent and the illumination at night is great.



It is what I wanted which is a great looking quality watch but if you want to regularly use all of the chronograph features you may want to have a good look at the watch before spending your money.



Great service and delivery including adjusting the size of the watch at no charge - Thanks.

The watch is a good size solid S/steel and is the perfect weight, fits perfect as the Watchshop adjusted the strap for me prior to despatch thankyou.

The watch looks great all functions seem to work fine, great illumination hands are easyily readable, and i don't ever have to worry about changing the date time or battery perfect.



Cons,

As the previous guy's review some of the number texts are very small. Still a fantastic buy.

Pros:

The watch is high quality Stainless Steel, very solid and very comfortable on the hand. It looks like it will last forever and not fade like plastics.



Performance of the watch is exactly as described, all functions work well and the atomic time reception is excellent, even where i live, about 1500 km from Germany.

Great illumination, witch makes the minutes and hour easily readable at every time.



Cons:

The watch is very hard to read, because engraved text and numbers are very small and thin, especially the bottom 24hour dial, witch i find it not very useful.
