    Great watch, lovely dial and good weight to it. Actually slightly smaller than I was expecting.

    I particularly like the black on black colouring and enjoy telling people it can withstand 12G - not that it will experience that level of punishment on my wrist!

    Only thing I think could be done better is the light. I think a backlight would have been slightly nicer.

    Overall very happy with this watch.

    Great watch! Chunky and beautifully weighted. Bought it mainly for the radio-controlled aspect which is superb. Like the three tones of black (matt, gloss and satin)- also cool gunmetal face. Well thought out colour co-ordination with the LED display, the two small hands and the orange light. Not anything I dislike about it- it would be perfect it if had a function for sunset and sunrise times, but I'm just being picky! Will also be v useful for trips to other time zones..

    Well chuffed :)

    Nice watch. Usual tricky manual but light feature very desirable. No instruction on adjusting strap length.

    What a watch ! dont waste your time spending 3 to 4 times as much on a tissot t touch.This has all they have and more. Beautifully weighted and robust yet stylish. Being atomic,solar powered and carrying 40 plus world time zones, with auto light and many more features , this watch really has everything you need for a fantastic price ! love this watch :)

    Key features I looked for were: a) solar; b) atomic; c) multiple alarms; d) hourly signal; e) waterproof; f) rugged; g) good looking. I think Casio has done well to combine all these features and more into a very reasonably priced (at least the price for which Watch Shop sells it!) package.

    I was worried this watch would be quite heavy on my wrist, but fortunately I hardly notice the weight. The four buttons are easy to locate without looking, and to press (e.g. to cancel an alarm).

    I had a resin strap Waveceptor before but the strap split and cost £15-20 for a replacement. I hope the metal band will last as long as the watch. The ion coating has rubbed off slightly in a couple of places on the bracelet, but it is not too noticeable.

    I like the clarity of the analogue hands. However the size of the hands sometimes obscures the digital displays.

    In good light, the digital displays are crisp and legible. However, in darker locations, it becomes hard to read them.

    The watch keeps excellent time; no matter when I listen to the time signal on the radio, it is always within a fraction of a second on the watch.

    The multiple alarms are very useful. I rely on three of them each day! I also wanted a watch with an hourly time signal, so was very pleased to find this one.

    I turned the auto-light feature off because it became slightly annoying lighting up the bedroom when I twisted my arm. It also used the (rechargeable) battery more quickly.

    The recessed face helps protect it. Previous Casios have suffered as I inadvertently brushed past a wall or osbtruction and ended up with a scratch across the face. So far, so good!

    All in all, I'm pleased with this watch. Its robust construction should keep it ticking on my wrist for a good few years to come.

    The watch is very rugged and the metal strap feels secure when you are wearing it.The main watch display is large and easy to read. The hands are visable at night and the night light illuminates the hands well also. The led dispalys could be brighter as they are difficult to see some times and there is no back light on the led displays, so you cannot see the date, stop watch etc at night. would be a fantastic watch if the led displays were more visable.

    Very nice watch, light and super resistant. The automatic light with wrist inclination does not seem to work reliably, it risks to suck the charge for nothing. But it's a good buy.

    Real serious watch with features you really can use.Handling is easy and understandable without reading the booklet.Finish is good,size and weight too. Like all other G's it could be thinner and for this model bracelet should be a very little larger. Links can be removed without special tool.All in one a state of art watch worth every penny

    This is a chunky G-Shock, Tough Solar, Waveceptor with a black ion plated steel bracelet, aimed at the Aviator. Being a Waveceptor accuracy is guaranteed especially as 6 worldwide time reference transmission sites sites are covered.

    For the intrepid traveler an additional time zone can be displayed on the reverse LCD display. Changing time zone and associated reference transmitter is easily achieved as are other timing functions including alarms and stopwatch via the large buttons.

    A neat feature of this watch is that it can be set up for an LED to illuminate the dial when you move your wrist to the normal viewing position under darkness. Unfortunately the LED does not provide back lighting for the LCD display - this is probably the most annoying feature of this otherwise excellent watch.

    The watch does not have a sweep second hand but displays seconds on a small LCD. This feature has probably been included to avoid increasing the thickness of an already chunky watch as well as eliminating the constant power drain associated with triggering a stepping motor every second.

    The watch was easy to get going out of the box and the bracelet with its neat micro-adjustment feature was easy to set to my wrist size.

    The instruction manual is a little on the small side. However a .pdf version can be downloaded from Casio by quoting the movement ref 5064 which is stamped on the back cover.

    I expect to get good service from this well built timepiece.
