DEL Boii | Sun 25th September 2011 |

This is my first ever chronograph watch, so I don't have anything else to compare this product to. But I have to say, I think it's absolutely superb - the radio controlled feature, combined with the world time is very clever; as well as having two independent stop watches that work a treat. The watch is a little weighty, but I think this merely adds to, and emphasises the point that this really is a quality time piece. I was a little worried that it would look stupidly big on my wrist, as I am 15 and so don't have especially chunky wrists - however I am very pleased to say that this is not the case. The back light, although a relatively common feature on many watches now a days, is a feature I particularly like as many chronographs I looked at whilst making my decision lacked this feature. The only down side is that the back light doesn't light up the digital window that displays the date - however I knew that from other reviews when purchasing this watch, so I wasn't at all disappointed. I would also just like to mention how quick and efficient the service from watchshop was - my order arrived adjusted to my specifications very promptly after placing my order; and I received emails and was able to track my order on line, so I knew exactly where and when my order was.
Overall a fantastic watch, well worth the money and another very happy customer. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a quality time piece without breaking the bank.
Thank you watchshop

I was looking for a good watch on-line which should have good features and at the same time should be light weight. I found this watch perfect in all sense, light weight, filled with nice features with and excellent look. Its easier to use and really a perfect watch for young and professional person. I love this watch. :)

i love this watch i think its fantastic. the watch has loads of features the only problem as other people have said is that it is difficult to see the digital display in the light but actually i find it difficult to read in the dark, in the light is perfect. overall it is the best watch i have ever had.

The watch looks and feels fantastic. Easy to use after a little experimentation, the size is chunky without being too large and it is not too ostentatious. Several people have expressed suprise that it was only £150 and have said it has the look of a more expensive time piece.

After much looking for a new watch I came across this Casio! Known mainly for their digital watches I was at first dubious about the quality of a traditional analogue watch. That tentative feeling was soon dismissed by reading the reviews on some of their best know g-shock watches, with some of the build quality and sturdiness coming across into the edifice range.  I was lucky enough to try this watch on before I bought it from watchshop as the local jewler had one in stock (£200). If any of you have concerns about the watch being too big for your wrists don't, it's a good fit on my slim wrist without looking daft! It ain't the lightest mind, though that is due to it being stainless steel 183g. 
Strap feels sturdy and once set at the correct size doesn't slide up and down my wrist as previous metal strap watches have.  Features wise, there are bucket loads, so whilst the watch looks very cool it's still retains trusty Casio features such as stop watch, led light, and a digital beep. There is even a function that if u tilt ur wrist more than 40 degrees the light will come on to show you the time! This can be turned off to save battery. Set up was quite straight forward, though found it best to download the PDF from Casio website as the printed manual was a bit tiny. The auto radio time set feature is also very good and keeps exact time with the speaking clock! 
In summary, a very good looking watch without being to bling, gets some attention, plenty of features to keep u fiddling and proving comfortable to wear all day. Only criticism is that its a shame the date window doesn't illuminate with the rest of the face when using the LED light function. I would been keen for Casio to produce a waveceptor watch that is solar powered without costing half the national debt -no doubt watch shop would have more money from me if they did.

Generally, I like the style, the black dial plate and sivler belt. However, to set is too complex and the compass is necessary, becasue more and more people travel in the world for business, academic and leisure.

To start of, this watch looks way more expensive than what its actually worth.Very clear to read the time and the date is very useful.The minute and hour hands light up in the dark after exposure to light which is very handy at night after you go out into to the street or else.Personally I like the stainless steel straps not leather or rubber so this watch defiantly fit my criteria.The style is kind of sporty and me being 14 really like it.It's water resistant for those unfortunate moments and the time calibration system is an absolute winner.Every night I just press the A button (TOP LEFT) for 4 seconds and wait 2-4 minutes for the watch to adjust its self to the time.I like that the watch face is big and chunky and not tiny and small.In bright light it looks like its made from diamond, I just love this watch.I still don't know its full potential but slowly I'm beginning to get the hang of it.I couldn't forget the clip mechanism, where you have to press to buttons to release the strap,again very handy while moving your hand a lot.Overall I give it top marks for its usability.
