I bought this watch because it had several remarkable features. The first, not so remarkable, is that it has a dark face, which makes it easy to read the time in all lights. The fact that it is solar powered is a big plus as one doesnt have to bother about replacing batteries. The other very attractive feature is that the watch has the time checked/corrected each day by a radio signal so it is always accurate. In amongst all the other features these make it a remarkably good watch and excellent value.

First impressions are that this is an excellent watch - no more bother with batteries and perfect timekeeping. The time-keeping is radio-controlled and carried out in the early hours of the morning, a slight nuisance as the watch has to be left facing a window to pick up the signal and cannot therefore be worn in bed. It looks good too.

Seeking a radio controlled watch online, and choosing a casio blue faced, staneless steel, including bracelet, model WVA-430DU-2A2VER. I placed the order and together with Royal Mail tracking information, within two days received the order. The watch in every way met the standard expected by the shown product online.

I have just bought a Wave Ceptor watch. It is everything I hoped it would be-except for the strap. Far too big. Other reviews have said it is easy to shorten, using a paper clip. Not so they just fold up, not strong enough. Ive tried a bradawl starts it but - too thick, a machine needle, no good. I will have to take it to a jeweller, bit embarrassing. I think Casio could have included a tool to take the pins out . However Its a beautiful watch to look at and seems to work fine. Lots of functions, most of which I dont suppose I will use , but apart from the strap I am well pleased with it

My comments are aimed more at those who need reading glasses but dont wear them all the time! I bought this for myself as my previous Casio had a difficult to read dial. Ageing vision made this worse. This watch has good contrast between hands and face and is easy to read in daylight even without my reading glasses on, even the sweep second hand. The luminous dial is not that clear in the dark however and the illuminated portion, the digital panel, is too small to see in the dark without glasses. A fully lit dial would have been better but probably too much of a drain on the solar powered battery. The battery keeps itself fully charged despite being covered by my sleeve most of the time. A good looking watch suitable for those with presbyopia! And anyone else obviously.

It was a little heavier than I expected but It has replaced a plastic cased Casio, otherwise excellent but the non replaceable strap had failed.
It was easy to adjust the strap using a paperclip and pliars. I am very happy with it. The luminous dial is more effective than I expected and it gives me an admirable combination of analogue and digital features. The watch is programmed up to 2099 and it looks good enough to last until then. NOT THAT I WILL. I shall miss the compass on my last watch.

A smart looking, classically smooth design with a clear dark blue face and luminous hands.
Hopefully the Scottish weather will produce sufficient sun to keep the solar battery charged.
The radio signal managing time corrections should save me problems of remembering which buttons to press and how often to press them to adjust for Summer and Winter time.

I already have a gold, traditional battery-powered watch, but as I spend a lot of my leisure time walking and climbing in wild country I felt the need for a more robust timepiece that would be a reliable time-keeper and require little or no adjustment. I spent some time on the Watchshop web site considering the pros and cons of the considerable options available and eventually settled on this Casio. Apart from my being fascinated by the accuracy with which the second hand matches other radio-controlled clocks in the house, this watch more than meets my exacting standards. It also looks very handsome on my wrist!

I had already owned a Wave captor that I got as a 10 years at work gift, then as now I liked the solar powered, dual display, 100% accurate time keeping that 7 years ago was new technology. So when my beloved watch started to show different times it was time for a replacement, so as no other company had the options I wanted, I went for another Casio. I had looked on all the usual websites but watchshop came out the best price, quick delivery and would even take some links out meaning it was ready to wear from the box. whats not to like? nothing as far as Im concerned, its a time piece I love to much, this is my 2nd Casio.

I was looking for a watch that was easy to read and this fits my needs. Some watches seem to be designed more for style than practicality, especially for older people. This is nicely designed and easy to read. The only draw back is that the light only illuminates the small digital display which is not much use if one has problems with small print, but as I dont usually want to know the date at night and the dial and hands are slightly luminous its not a problem .

Excellent is all I need to say, I didnt even need to alter the bracelet. Nice clear dial, luminous hands and numbers make this great to see in the dark and this is the ideal watch for someone who hasnt got time to go round altering times at DST perfect for the lazy one just like me. Great colour dial and easy to see day and date in the digital window.
Glad I bought one.

Item was bought as a gift, but purchased because radio controlled, so no messing about putting the time correct all the time.
The 12, 3, 6, 9 figures all slightly bigger, which is great for the recipient who has trouble seeing small numbers.
Purchased as face was lovely blue colour and when it arrived didnt disappoint, also because it was described as lightweight, which again it is just as described.
Also Casio is great brand that lasts and lasts.
Overall a lovely looking watch, which fits lovely on the wrist, and isnt too heavy, and has the bonus of being radio controlled.

The second time I have bought this exact watch. Radio-controlled, so always exactly right in the UK and most of Europe. Nice clear face. Never need to replace the battery. I like its appearance, comfortable and chunky enough but not too heavy.

Less good -
After a while the plastic parts of the strap show wear, but not too bad.
You need to use the manual to get everything from it. Or is that good? - Lots of options.

I was looking for a watch, which would be smart, practical, look good and have dual functionality Analogue/ digital.
I had a Timex before, which i was very pleased with, particularly the back light and clear dials, so I was very impressed with the image of the wave ceptor watch.
First impression, unfortunately, was the blue colour face is a lot darker than the image lets on, and i find i have to hold the face at an appropriate angle towards the light to get the full or best effect. Also, the digital display is not very clear, a darker lettering on a whiter face would have been better.
However, the above is the only negatives, the watch DOES feel and look good, its bracelet strap is very easy to adjust, and the watch body is smooth and sleek, with the buttons built into the sides, to look as though they were designed with the style in mind, not just added as an afterthought.
Overall, very pleased, will be interested to see how the shock proof and water live up to every day life, as this stage Im expecting it to perform very well.

For many years Ive had a watch with a plastic/resin strap but wanted to get a longer lasting strap and am I glad. Ive been a massive fan of Casio for years previously had a G-shock watch, this time Ive gone for a bit more technology in the Wave ceptor and solar power battery. So far Im very happy and cant find anything wrong with it, the watch looks very expensive and classy, the strap is easily resized by a good shop as I didnt fancy risking scratching the casing. Not used it in water yet but will not doubt be good as other casio products have previously. A+++

I own battery powered Waveceptor, which runs on third battery and for sixth year now. This convinced me to buy this watch for my cousin. I read reviews for this watch with Titanium bracelet, and people complained about plastic parts joining bracelet with watches case.
-1 point from me, for this resin part, as this will be the part that will wear first. My old waveceptor has its scratches on bracelet, case and glass, Ive changed battery twice, and I feel that it will last at least 6 more years.
Bracelet length adjustment is easy and can be done at home, if you have some small drill and pliers, just push out pins that hold bracelet segments, and remove as many as you need.
Other differences vs. old waveceptor:
- light illuminates only small LCD display, not the whole dial, as it did in old watch
- watch seems to be lighter more resin parts to surprise?
- time synchronization works much better, it seems that aerials have better gain. Starting manually synchronization of time, old waveceptor did not succeed, and this was successful. Repeated few times to confirm, and it was so again and again. Old watch cant synchronize sometimes for few days, and I think this will not be an issue here.
- It is possible to choose auto-detection of stronger source of signal, or signal source manually UK or Germany in case of this watch. Old waveceptor did not have such functionality. Could be crucial, if you live far away from signal source.

To sum things up - for this price, it is a very good choice, with many useful functions. You get nice watch good for swimming, with illuminated LCD, superb accuracy, 3 alarms. For me perfect combination of features. Just hope it lasts!

After two weeks everything is working well. tI is a little chunky but the more expensive ones are only 2mm smaller. It is a nice clear face and can be read in all lights. The test will come when it has to automatically update when the clocks go forward. We havent had much sun but it seems to charge if it is put an the table by the reading light.

I would recommend this company without reservation to anyone wishing to purchase a new watch. F. Gibbons

I bought the watch to replace my existing, very accurate out one as the resin part of the case was badly worn. Before I bought the watch I checked the FAQs where it stated that both the strap and the case itself are made of steel, so I was more than a bit miffed to find that there is still a resin element to the case. I feel let down but where else can you find such an accurate watch with all the features of this one?

Good looking watch with clear dial, not slim, but not heavy either. Time-keeping excellent, being radio controlled. Minute hand moves in 20 second steps. Sweep seconds hand difficult to see in poor light. Solid stainless steel bracelet, suits watch. Easy to remove links to adjust length, by pushing out pins using bent paper clip and small pliers. Fine adjustment by choice of hole in clasp. Well satisfied.

The blue face is appealing and distinctive. My only quibble is the second hand which is dark red and just does not show up against the blue face.

Love it, looks great, large enough to see clearly but not bulky or heavy. The fact that it is always right to the second and has a usable stop watch and alarm is a bonus. Sadly I don't travel enough to need the duel time!

Great product. Does everything it said it, looks great and is extremely accurate time keeper. It even has a back light for the digital readout that was not specified in the product details. I love the watch. The blue is really good looking

Good looking watch. Face is clear and big enough to see.Could do with a light that lights up the whole face of the watch not just the date box. Very pleased with my purchase.

Great service from Watch Shop - arrived next day- brilliant! All the Casio watches I have had over the years suffer with illumination in the dark. Casio still need to sort a better 'back-light', as, despite having reflective hands, they still require some sort of 'outside light' help for the time to be read in the middle of the night when staying overnight in a bedroom with no other clocks! Great sevrvice over a busy Christmas period - thank you.

I purchased this watch as a surprise Christmas present for my son and he's delighted with it. He's used to wearing smaller, lighter watches, but has adapted to this one with no problem other than the bracelet strap taking him longer to adjust than he anticipated. The clarity of the face of the watch, coupled with its accuracy and multi-functionality are particularly appreciated.

Good looking watch! A great pity about the very poor light which does not illuminate the face of the watch.
The glow in the dark bits are also hit and miss which is a great let down.
Otherwise it keeps perfect time and looks good!

The watch is even more elegant "in the flesh" than it appears in the pictures. The functions are extremely comprehensive though I cannot claim to have mastered them all yet. The operating manual is a splendid piece of work and should provide plenty of reading for the long winter evenings. All in all a really fine piece of machinery and I could not be more pleased.

As a minister of a church who is constantly running backwards and forwards to meetings I need a watch that is reliable, durable and wont let me down. (It also needs to look good when I'm wearing a suit!)

Being a gadget fan I was also looking for a watch with a few special features. As one who helps with youth work a stop watch for controlling games etc is also a must.

This watch meets the bill perfectly and both elderly friends and teenagers have commented on its looks, features and the value for money.

The fact that.the watch is "radio controlled" means that it will always be accurate to the second and I've no complaints there.

I was concerend about the "Titutaim strap" as I'm, used to have more flexible ones, but this was not a problem as it came ready fitted to the size of my wrist. Its a little heavy to wear and you may want to bear that in mind..

Its not a fussy watch with lots of information on or around the face but it is elegeant and the digital display is clear, easy to see and useful. (It also has a back light) The face is a lovely blue and easy to read. The lumious hands stay alite for a good ten minutes in the dark.

The digital features are excellent - two alarms and a stop watch function.

On the down side the manuel is a bit hard to follow and could be a little clearer. It does take a while to sort out how to set the various alarms but you will quickly get the hang of it. I've not taken it abroad yet but travelling anywhere in Europe I'm assured the watch will be easy to set - it will do this either automatically or manually.

From the moment I took it out of the box it has been telling the time accuaratly to the second.

In summary a fantastic watch and I have completly fallen in love with it.

This Casio watch was choosen equally for its looks and features. Was a little worried about the physcial size, but this proved to be unfounded. This is the first watch of this type I have ever bought and was choosen for daily use, as I have other watches which I wouldn't wear to work. Feels robust but yet looks stylish enough to wear to business meeting. Early days yet but I am very impressed with my Casio to date.

I had a similar watch but fed up with battery change decided to try the solar powered version. I was amazed (and delighted) that it arrived ready charged and running on correct time. The blue of the dial is a little dark, and the real fiddly bit was removing links from the wristband (not actually all that difficult once mastered) - maybe I should have asked them to do it for me. A really nice watch, and is running despite little sunlight the last few days! Such good service - I ordered mid afternoon Friday and it arrived Saturday morning.

After a lot of careful thought as to what functions/ design features I required and comparing many watches this one provided everything I was looking for: Clean simple design with 3 (phosphorescent) hands and digital display with waveceptor accuracy. Day, Date, Month, Year selectectable display. Stopwatch (with elapsed time, split time and 1st/2nd place). World times. 3 daily alarms and hourly signal. Solar powered battery recharge as an additional bonus. Robust stainless steel strap and watch body and LED illuminated blue dial water resistant to 100m. With the exception of the solar power this watch perfectly met the specification i required with no unwanted redundant functions. The price was very competative, the strap adjusted to the size I specified and next day delivery and service as promised. Very happy!

I started with three brands Casio,Seiko and Citizen and I can assure you that I have read many many reviews on a lot of web sites before settling on the Casio for the following reasons. solar powered (no more batteries) and time keeping (corrected by the atomic clock every day) I also wear glasses and remove them when I go to bed so the luminous hands mean that I can read the time in a dark room(may be a bit blurred without my glasses but I can still make out the time)I also like the position of the day/date feature where it is not obscured by the hour hand when it reaches 3 o`clock (had not thought of that before I got the watch)I just love the blue dial and the fact that the 3/6/9/and12 are all that little bit bigger makes the watch so easy to read,even the red second hand looks good against the blue face and is easy to read.Like a lot of others that I have read about in the reviews I also had to remove a link in the metal band but if you look on the inside of the band on the links you can see some that have a little arrow which shows you the direction to push out the connecting pin.If you follow this and take a little care you can have the job done in a matter of seconds.As a 60 year old (got the watch for my birthday) I have had many watches some cheap and some not so cheap but this one seems to out shine all the others it is light weight on the wrist easy to read even the push buttons have a sleek design and look good. It is water resistant to100 meters so should be OK for that odd plunge into a bucket of water although I have not tested it yet but it is only a matter of time before I do accidentally.Another first for this watch is that it is the first watch I have ever had which is all set and ready to go,time set ,date set straight out of the box(apart from removing the link as I mentioned earlier).I do not know how resistant to scratches it is going to be but now that I have got a watch that looks this good I am going to adopt a policy of taking it off when doing something which might scratch the face as I have not found a watch yet which will not scratch.The watch does a lot other things and has a lot of features,some that I will most probably never use,but they are there if ever I need them and as we say from my part of the world "You are better looking at it than for it". Overall I love everything about this watch I do not have anything bad to say about it.Someone has clearly sat down and thought about the design of this watch and I think it is great value for money and leads me well into the 21 century.All I got to do now is live long enough to enjoy it.Well done CASIO

Product feels sturdy, and looks the piece. Very good value for money! Simple to update the time when it first arrives, other functions may be a little complicated, I've not really played with them though, Instruction booklet clear and easy to follow. Clear display, watch numerals and hands glow in the dark so even without the backlight the time can be seen in the dark. Service from thewatchshop was perfect. Adjusted and delivered to my door in approx 20 hours!

This is my second waveceptor-I accidentally dropped the first overboard on a sailing trip.This time I went for the stainless steel bracelet to enhance the blue face.I have to have a second hand for my job as a GP and I travel frequently in Europe so the world time feature is a must.I just love it.

I am delighted with my Wave Ceptor. It has always been very important to have an accurate time piece, and this is the ultimate, To actually own such a bit of kit like this, for me is a mark of the times(no pun intended).I can't stop looking at it, and checking all other clocks and watches. Delighted with the deep blue easy to read dial.No money cost,such a good deal.

This is a nice solid watch & although the blue coloured face was darker than the picture on your web site it is still very clear. It has had no trouble picking up the time signal even though I havent placed it in a window as suggested in the manual. It also charges well in artificial light although only seems to reach high charge in sunlight. I would recommend this watch to anybody.

The face is clear, functional and uncluttered. Hands are plain and well suited to the numerals.Second hand, delicate and precise, perfectly synchronised. Dig.display fine. All functions useful. Battery & charging. Went from "Med" to "Hi" after short period in window. Case design is clean & streamlined. Buttons are neater than most & have a nice positive operation. Do not hang up on clothing.

Bracelet. Strong & comfortable. Positive & safe fastener.



The only improvement I could suggest is to the illumination. The luminosity fades and the LED is not really bright enough for my (Old.) eyes.

Red LED and fluourescent hands. (As older aircraft instruments.)might break new ground for watches?

Watch is just as beautiful as on the picture, even looks betterr in real life. I am very satisfied with the purchase. I ordered the watch in the late afternoon and receied it the day after no more than 32 hours. Delivery in other words just perfect.

The watch itself as I said is as I wanted it nothing to add and it works perfectly showing the atomic time from the begining, what I checked with my other solar and atomic watch. Regarding the product otself there is nothing on the negative side. The only two small things are that it comes in a paper box and I hoped a metal tin, but I thin the more expensive ones come in a tin. Also the manual is very tiny and difficult to read.

Overall I am very happy and already recommended my brother's girlfriend to buy a watch for my brother from watchshop.

I wanted a watch to put on my wrist and forget about and so far the casio wave ceptor fits the bill.

It's the usual casio high build quality that I've come to expect, I've owned G-Shocks in the past but now wanted a watch that looked good for all occasions but still had the casio toughness, it certainly ticks that box.

The main feature for me is the crystal clarity of the watch face itself,even the digital display is easy to read,unlike other watches.

I opted for the stainless steel strap because it gives it more of a feeling of solidity as opposed to titanium which although is as strong is much lighter.

The atomic time keeping is immaculate to the second, and the solar power is tough, this watch can be kept in a draw for 6 months and still work, even after that just bring it into any light source and it will start working again, brilliant.

Downsides?,nothing for the watch only the instructions which were in small print, not really needed, after 5 minutes pressing the buttons it became self explanatory,anyway by default the watch is set to GMT and daylight saving time, take it out of the box and wear it,brilliant.

It did not come in the casio presentation box as shown but not really an issue.

Delivered bang on time and was even price matched and a 2 year casio guarantee.

Overall excellent watch and I thoroughly reccommend it.

I bought the Casio Waveceptor Watch for my Husband at Christmas because he wanted a no fuss, reliable watch with a clear face and this ticks all the boxes. He loves it !

The features of this watch are excellent. It sets the time itself, including the hands, and should continue to do so through daylight savings etc. Solar charged too. Supports time zones so its easy to change when going on holiday.



The only downside I would say is the build quality. Other reviews mention that this is a heavy watch, but I felt it was too light. The problem is the watch is made more of plastic that I expected. The seems to be plastic where the strap joins, and the strap itself feels light (probably a cheap metal).



So far the watch is holding up fine but I was left a bit concerned about the long term durability. The whole point of the automatic features (solar + auto time) are that it lasts a decade at least. I am not convinced it will physically survive that long.
