When choosing a mans watch, the buyer has to juggle the competing offers of fashion, form and function. The Casio Wave Ceptor Alarm Chronograph Watch WVA-430TDE-1A2VER perfectly balances all three.

Its fashion is traditional. The strong dark grey colour of the display is striking while likely to match with any modern male business or smart casual dress. The use of numbers rather than Roman numerals in a clear type face gives the dial an impressive look and makes it easy to read at all time. Lastly the decision to mount the small digital display at the bottom of the dial rather than at the 3-oclock point means that the dial retains its perfect symmetry.The metal strap has a nice burnished steel appearance.

Its a tough watch as I know from having owned one in the past. It is highly water resistant and the dial has never clouded even briefly whether after a swim in the pool or the sea or a after taking abate or shower. My original watch has withstood bashes and bumps and while the glass might have incurred wafer thing scratches it still as clear as the day I bought it.

The facilities that the watch offers are ideal for anyone who needs their watch for travel and sports as well as for simply timekeeping.The alarm function works well and the stopwatch function is useful for anyone seeking to monitor their own exercise routines.

However the real star feature is the way in which you can alter the time as you travel. The simple controls allow you to choose the timezone you require. But rather than have to twiddle the dial round you need simply select the relevant city and the watch automatically winds the time forward or backward. The digital display then allows you you to keep your home country time displayed. For instance if you travel to New York you can set the dial to New York time while keeping London time on display in the digital section.

The watch keeps perfect time as it is tuned into the automatic signal that means it adjusts overnight, every night. It also has one-buttom facility to move between GMT and British Summer Time which again involved lost of twiddling of dials

The price is nice too. The WatchShop price of £116 was the cheapest available online and the 24-hour delivery was fantastic.

Overall then this is perfect value for money for a robust watch that combined good looks with an array of functions. I couldnt be without mine. When I lost my original Wave Ceptor I immediately rushed to replace it with the exact same model!

I love the performance of this watch -it does everything my Breitling does and that cost 10 times more.However as an everyday watch its cheap price is obvious in the wear that the body and glass have suffered.The more expensive versions -which have a sapphire glass-arent seriously waterproof but apparently the glass cannot be swopped.So lovely performance, does it all but after a years use I would really have preferred to pay twice as much for a more substantial body

This is a great watch that ticks most of the boxes. First of all it looks great on your wrist and with its radio signal time checking there is never a doubt of its accuracy to the second and even when out of signal range the timing is immaculate. How do I know this just after buying it? I have had one of thes on my wrist for 12 years! It has been worn 24/7 and has taken the inevitable battering of sports and DIY, but is looking a bit bruised now, hence the new replacement. To get the best out of it though you definitely need to read the manual.

a really good watch,I like all of features apart from the alarm because i have a hearing problem, if it vibrated as well it would be ideal. It looks very smart on, its easy to read in all conditions, its very light to wear and the bracelet is so comfortable it dos not pinch, its just so well made.I dont think i will be buying another watch for a very long time.

I have several watches Citizen Eco-Drive, Rotary, Pulsar, Lorus, Accurist but none of them is a patch on this watch. Simplicity itself - radio-controlled time, solar-powered, lightweight titanium - frankly, everything the other watches might want when they grow up!
Recommend this watch to anyone - brilliant!!
One ever so tiny point would be WatchShop yourselves - description said BLUE face, but this one is burgundy which is OK as I do not have a Burgundy faced watch already and description said watch supplied in a tin? - but mine came in a flimsy cardboard box. Having said that, what will it matter - it never needs to come off my wrist :

I have owned this watch for two years. I spent a lot of time looking for what, to me, would be the perfect watch - it had to be accurate, easy to read and look smart. The fact that its also solar powered has been a great bonus - no worrying about the battery going flat at an awkward time. The backlight is a lit time dim, but the luminous hands are very good and much better than many watches Ive owned over the years. I like this watch so much, Ive stopped looking for a new one - something that I used to do every year.

I am having this watch as a Christmas present so I havent got it on my wrist yet, but from what I have seen so far I have nothing but praise both for the watch and Watchshop. I ordered this watch on the 16/11 and got an e-mail confirming the order, within a few minutes I had another e-mail telling me that it had been picked and sent to have the bracelet adjusted then another to say it had been dispatched. Two days later it arrived well packed with all the bit that had been taken out of the bracelet A1 service. Although it is a present I had to have a look and a play, it looks and feels a very nice watch very light a nice colour and looks nice on my wrist. I found it was no problem getting to know the watch and understanding the instructions it more or less sets itself. There are four buttons which make all the digital part of the watch work ie stop watch, date and time, alarm etc. but quite easy to understand. I did have a worry as the second finger was 5 seconds out of sink with the digital time but on reading to the end of the instructions it tells you how to synchronize the analog and digital sides of the watch 30 seconds later it done. I took the advice of other people in there reviews and downloaded and printed the instructions from the web sit. The book that comes with it you would need a magnifying glass to read it and even when printed of the website on A4 paper the lettering is not very lager, its only 6 pages. I hope this will be of some help to someone and I cant wait for Christmas.

The watch was set to continental time, but within five minuets ,using the included instructions, it was up and running on UK time.I found the instruction booklet very easy to understand even for an old fuddy duddy like me aged 70. Cannot fault the watch. it does everthing that it says on the label. Would reccomend to anybody

I Must say I do like this watch For a start it’s so light I chose the titanium one and it does everything you won’t just put it on your wrist and forget about, you never need to change the battery or alter the time as everything is done for you
Why am I so confident about it Because I have owned one for the last 3 years with no problems at all So why a new one well I must admit to been a bit ruff with my first one so now a nice new one for dress

I had this watch before some years ago... before it was stolen! I decided to buy it again because it is quite simply the perfect watch for me. For the size, it is really light, and is very comfortable to wear. I love the fact that it is self powered and corrects itself even correcting for daylight saving time. When travelling abroad it is fun to show to your kids as the hands automatically spin round to the selected time zone... Cool! :
My shopping experience with watchshop could not have been better with free next day delivery. Excellent!

The watch with everything. It keeps perfect time. No need to wonder if its a little slow or fast. Clean clear display. Lightweight titanium. Solar battery so no imminent battery change. Sweep second hand. If it said Seiko on the front it could sell for 2 or 3 times the price.

This watch has the features I wanted analogue time display and an alarm setting plus a couple of interesting extras radio control plus a solar cell to keep the battery topped up. The clean, classic appearance of the watch face appealed to me more than the small number of others all from Casio which combined these features, so it was an easy choice. From the three variations in colour and strap type I had no hesitation in picking the titanium model, and overall it looks superb. The only obvious downside is that it is rather bulky.

Once it arrived I discovered some difficulties as a result of the very complex four-button control system. To access all of the functions you have to press the buttons in various different sequences, and the button functions change depending on the buttons youve pressed beforehand. It doesnt help that the buttons are diagonally opposite each other, so if you do the natural thing - press a button with a finger while bracing the watch with your thumb on the opposite side - you are liable to press two buttons at once.

I was immediately in deep water because of the radio control function, which was incorrectly set when the watch arrived. Despite printing the owners manual from the Casio website, I was unable to navigate my way through the maze of instructions six A4 pages of them, in very small font. I had to call the Casio helpline, which fortunately was answered promptly by an assistant who talked me through the correct button sequence, step by step.

I almost gave up on the watch, but decided to keep it because of the combination of features and appearance, which suits me better than anything else on the market. I just have to practice the button sequences for the functions I use the most. If you are not put off by all this, then I highly recommend this watch. If you want your watch to have simple, intuitive controls, then buy something else.

An excellent product that is easy to operate, accurate it adjusts itself automatically a number of times a day, very light and therefore fine when out running and is appropriate for casual and more formal wear.

This is an excellent watch. Being radio controlled it keeps very accurate time and changes automatically for summer or winter time and for months of different length. It is very easy to read even at night and the LCD display can be set for different time zones. The internal battery is charged by sunlight or any artificial light and there is no need for a winder and no need to open the case at all and it is therefore much more likely to remain water resistant. The waterproof seal on my previous watch failed after it had been opened to change the battery. My Wave Ceptor has a titanium case with crystal glass so it is much lighter, tougher and more scratch resistant than my old watch. It is a fairly large watch but looks good as the design of the strap has been fully integrated with the watch unlike the clunky attachments seen on old fashioned watches. This is a real product of 21st century technology and in my opinion is vastly superior to so called famous name watches costing many times the price.

High tech understated gem. This is a very good looking watch and with titanium being used rather than stainless steel it is very lightweight and comfortable to wear. The dial is very clear and easy to read and being luminous is also easy to read in the dark. The day and date is provided via a small LCD screen and this also is easy to read even when the minute hand is in the way. With the radio control accuracy is spot on and when on the continent it is easy to change to the Berlin transmitter. Like many modern watches there are features available that you wont be using every day and therefore you will forget how to access them. My recommendation would be to download the instructions onto your iPhone/iPad so that you have them easily available. All in all a great watch.

For decades now I have been collecting watches that -- tell you how fast your travelling, tell you your heart rate, tell you what time it is around the world, tell you when to decompress on a dive, tell you how fast your little legs are going on your push-bike, when actually all you need is a watch like this one to tell you the time, in daylight or dark, with or without glasses and a date, -- to tell you if your pension has hit the bank yet!
This watch can do all I need of a watch, with the addition of a couple of alarms, a stop watch, and a window to tell me what day it is should I forget. Brilliant!

I like everything about this watch The accuracy, with Solar and Radio Control makes opening my computer each morning and watching the second hand on my watch click round in exactly the same position as the one on the computer clock, a happy moment. At the end of the month the automatic changeover really knocks me out. It is surprising how many times people say `what day is it today`. My watch knows! The alarm is not for me, I`m a bit deaf. The titanium makes the watch incredibly light but for me the technology in the watch entitles it to a little bit of flash. I would like a gold plated model but I love mine all the same.

I have checked the returned watch out-all OK, except rhe alarm signal is very quiet I am going deaf !!.
I have been very impressed with your customer service and would not hesitate to recommend you.
This is my second Casio wave-ceptor watch.The first one required no initial hand setting at all. Only because I am a DIY nutcase,it is badly scratched that I have I changed it
many thanks

I really like this watch. It is quite light and you hardly know you are wearing it. But it still feels like a tough watch. The watch adjusts itself for British Summer Time and I have to admit I stayed up to see the time change! You can change the time zone to other areas of the world although the radio controlled part only works in the UK or Europe which for me is not a problem. The only small downside I have for the watch is that the illumination does only illuminate the LCD part of the face. I knew this before I bought it but it would have been nice to illuminate the whole face. It is a really nice watch.

I looked at a lot of watches, I wanted a sports watch with an analogue dial and an easy to set alarm. I also really liked the accuracy. The Waveceptor fitted the bill and is light to wear compared to some dive watches I have had. So far I cannot fault it.

My previous watch was a Wave Ceptor WVA-430DU-1AVER which I have had for over 10 years and not been any problem until recently so I already knew which type of watch I wanted.
I was undecided on which one to buy Steel or Titanium but opted for this WVA-430TDE-1A2AVER despite reading some negative reviews on its manufacture materials. When the watch arrived I was amazed at how good it looks, the website pictures do not do it justice. It just looks and feels great Do NOT be put off by any negative comments on its looks as you cannotg tell that it has any plastic or resin on it.
As for ease of set up, mine was set to the Berlin time zone which I changed to London and it set it self up to the correct time. With the overnight time update all was fine so not a lot to do there. very light compared to my old one, you dont even feel you are wearing it
The downside points - well for me anyway are that, for my eyes the light is not quite bright enough but thats just me. The text is very small in the booklet that comes with it and that can be overcome by downloading a manual from the Casio website..
My overall comments are that If you want a watch that once setup, you can wear and forget and looks good, then this is the one to buy.

This watch is all its cracked up to be. It does need an hour or so to go through the manual but this is well worth it because you can fit and forget after that.
Neither the manual nor the product details describe the 3mm user strap adjustment which Im sure will prove perfect for the slight adjustment needed for winter/summer.
The order processing, including the free bracelet adjustment, could not have been any quicker, absolutely astonishing. I was convinced there couldnt have been time to adjust the bracelet but the removed links, included as promised, were the proof.
The one thing that did go wrong is the bracelet adjustment. I think we must both have added the 5mm and if ordering again I would specify both the wrist measurement and the required bracelet measurement to avoid any doubt. To be fair, the links are 8mm so it could have been a tricky decision and they were right to err too large rather than too small.

I love this watch, adjusting the strap is easy - it is slightly bulky but i feel light. It has many features and the manual was needed to set up.
I find it easy to read, the dial is not as blue as the picture suggested but still clear. I like the idea it will not let me down with dud bateries, I can check the state of charge in the batery, and the time sets itself.
I am very happy with the watch

The Wave Ceptor watch is brilliant I was amazed at how light it was being titanium - it looks good on my wrist and was easy to adjust only had to take 2 links out it is very comfortable on my wrist.

It was very easy to set up - only issue I had was that the time zone was set to GMT and the analogue dial was an hour ahead of digital time, and I couldnt adjust it. Setting the timezone to London enabled me to deselect DST and the watch auto-corrected itself - Excellent

The watch looks exactly as on the Watch Shop web site. I have bought it as a Christmas gift for my son and possibly I shall buy one for myself too. The only surprise was the light weight of it. Its due to the titanium used for the case and bracelet and perhaps some plastic either.

This Watch does what it says on the tin.The technology is just incredible. It looks really good on the wrist and the titanium parts make it very light in weight.The Sweep second hand looks great and the blue dial not only looks good it is also very clear to read.The luminous hands are the best I have seen and can be seen at night without the aid of the dial light.The fact that the battery is charged by solar power means a lifetime of know maintenance.Up to now the battery has remained in the high charge state.Overall a very nice watch to own.

Very impressed with this watch, you never have to adjust the date or time again! Titanium makes it very light but it still looks like a good quality watch. Some reviews criticise the plastic join between the watch body and the strap. On this watch you really cant see this although it is much more obvious on other models. The radio synchronisation signal is picked up easily when the watch is left on a bedroom table overnight, its not necessary to put it on a window ledge as stated in the instructions, but will depend on where in Europe you are staying. Has facility to automatically adjust to daylight-saving time when required. You can disable the radio sync if you want to, although Im not sure why you would? One useful feature is for people who want their watch to be a few minutes fast so they dont miss appointments: you can adjust the position of the analog hands, relative to the synchronised digital time. This means I can set the analog time to be 5 minutes fast, my wife loves this -
Minor negative points: 1 The alarm signal does not last very long, but at least you can set a 2nd alarm 5 minutes after the 1st one to help make sure you hear it. 2 I find some of the button-press functions to be in rather illogical places, eg why does the hand-set function not use the set button? This makes it difficult to remember where some of the functions are. 3 This watch can only synchronise time within Europe. If you want synchronised time outside of Europe then look at one of the newer Casio Wave Ceptors, like WVA-M630TD-1AER. 4 Watch Shop was very helpful and good value, I might have to buy another watch from them :-

OK. A watch is a personal thing in terms of style and function. I imagine if you are reading this then something about it appeals. I perused the reviews on here and elsewhere, and came back here to buy it. Now I have it, I love it already. I needed a new watch as my Seiko quartz after 25 years or so was scoffing expensive batteries within weeks, and my eyes 25 years or so older were struggling to actually discern what day or time it was...

So, what is there to be had in 2012 with a simple clear analogue face, with day/date, that doesnt scoff batteries and can go for a dip in the Indian Ocean, North Sea fishing trip or pool/shower/sauna without drowning? This One does all that then adds a load more Big Bangs for the Buck...

Solar powered battery is self sufficient, maintenence free, and fashionably green. well it could be any colour really, its hidden inside
29 time zones dual display is a bonus for regular travellers.
3 alarms - beep get out the sauna beep catch plane home etc.
Auto Radio Time Synchronisation daily - I am not late yer clock is fast :-p
Titanium case/bracelet - smart, strong, light, non-allergenic
Luminous hands x 3 and LED backlight on digi - set this to home time if you are an insomniac and need to see the time at 03:17 lol
Perpetual Calendar - it knows what day it is, what time it is within a nano-second and whether it should go back, forward or stay the same itself, always. The little DSP indicator tells you if it should be summer regardless of the incessant rain outside.
10 Bar water resistant if you get lobbed in the fountain on a stag night
Chronograph/stopwatch - time up to 2 of your mates sprint away from the fountain
Super Clear display - a big plus for those of us requiring reading glasses - I can see the time on this without my specs. 10 years off your age included in the price :-D
Easy to set up, even for an old git like me - RTFM As stated in other reviews get the PDF from the Casio.co.uk site, read it waiting for the Postie to knock you will be up and running in minutes. If I had thought it through I could have used the stopwatch to time myself but I was all excited and anyway the Postie woke me up just after 7am...

I read once a watch is a statement/reflection of the wearers personality. This one is Smart, classy, tough, handsome, precise, fully functional with a lot of hidden depth and purpose and exceptionally good value. :-O Oh and it doesnt need winding up either.....

It looks just like the pix/vid/3D on here, as others have said the face is more grey than blue nuff said. Having read others opinions its exactly what I was expecting, there really is nothing not to like in the flesh

So much for the watch. If you like the look of it, just buy it.

If you buy it, buy it here at Watch Shop. The service is brilliant, ordered at 5.30am Friday, got an email to say it was in stock and picked and sent for the FREE bracelet adjustment I specified fits perfectly at 11.15 am then another email to say it was despatched with a Royal Mail tracking number at 4.15 pm. Got a securely packaged RM Special Delivery at 07.03 the very next morning, Saturday. Enclosed as promised were the spare links and all documentation and Guarantee in the box. 5 star review given on the Independent Site for WatchShop too, Thanks.

Thanks also to the other Reviewers on this page, I found them all helpful. It remains to be seen if the watch is long term reliable and durable, I have a tendency to wear and forget which was a main attraction of this model.

All I need now is to win the Review of the Month, get my £118 back and umm... Ah the Watch just beeped - time to go.

It has a very stylish look and appealed to me straight away although there is so many to look at, and what a wonderful selection. It wont be too much longer to be able to wear it and then I shall be so happy, and grateful to my husband and of course to the Watch Shop for this lovely watch. A very good service and very good communications. Very quickly received, and I also bought a watch for my husband for Christmas and he too, is looking forward to Christmas when he, too, will be able to wear his. Thanks Watch Shop.

A great watch, light-weight. A lot of features, comes with a 73 page small pages handbook/user guide. The watch face colour, is a much darker navy blue than the illustration suggests. Has an alarm, stop-watch, GMT display. I am still discovering new features. The display has very good luminous figures when dark, better than a lot of other watches. The digital display can be illuminated when dark. The time is set by the transmitter now based in Scotland, so as long as the signal is being received should always tell the correct time, and automatically adjust when the time changes from GMT to British Summer Time and vice-versa.

I am in a unique place to review this Casio Wave Ceptor watch. When I lost it after six happy years I sought out the exact same model in Watchshop. Why such devotion? Firstly the accuracy: the fact that it is radio-controlled means I know exactly what tone it is, no ifs or buts. Secondly the solar power function means I never need worry about batteries or winding. Thirdly the ability to flip between different timelines while keeping more home time visible in the digital display is invaluable in my job as a journalist. Lastly I love the weight of the watch and the clarity of the almost black display.
My only concern was the watch strap. In my 1995 model I had to replace each Id the pins one by one. I hope this has been resolved since.

I bought this casio watch for my nephew who was back home for a few weeks from Colombia .It was his birthday and we thought it a nice present .His choice of watch was the Wave Ceptor Titanium Chronograph .My first thought was ....I didnt know casio made watches ,I remember the only casio was a calculator? He showed me the watch online and I was hooked .This is a very stylish looking watch and does everything a watch should do ....it is radio controlled and needs no batteries because of the solar power so all you have to do is put it on and away you go .He thinks it maybe will pick up a signal when he is back in Bogota because he read a review that said just that but even if it doesnt it will be no problem to keep it on track until he gets back to europe . To be honest I wanted one of my own when it arrived and the next step could be another one .

I am in a unique position to review the Wace Ceptor Titanium Watch WVA-430TDE - I owned one for five years, lost it in the sea last month and sought out the exact same model. What I loved about it most was the weight of the watch, the clarity of the display and, most of all, the ability to choose the time of anywhere in the world, while having London time in the digital display. Lastly - and despite how I lost it - I love the fact that I never need to take off for the swimming pool or beach. It is also very tough: I fell on it and while it scratched the glass slightly its performance never worsened. The only negative thing is the strap: on my first model the pins that connect the links fel out one by one and I had to replace them with DIY wire. I hope that problem has been identified and rectified

I am an avid fisherman and I needed to replace my old watch that was letting in water with a new one that needed to be able to live up the task. I chose the casio wave ceptor because it seems pretty rugged, an easy to read dial at night, water proof, and I think it looks great to and at an excellent price.
I chose the titanium version and could not believe how light it is to wear, I,ve only had a couple of weeks and I can not fault it one bit.

Had the Casio wave ceptor WVA-105H for six years no problems except I left it in China not recommended!!
Liked this watch so much decided to get another. Came across the Casio Wave Ceptor WVA-430TDE-1A2VER it offered every thing my previous watch had plus it is solar powered. the watch in two finishes stainless or titanium.
I opted for the Titanium finish which looks great.
the watch come set up ready to wear, it has loads of great functions eg. stop watch, day date, time in all major cities in the world, back lit and its WR to 100m.
It has a really good clasp with some adjustment available.
To top it off its a doddle to use but if you need some help the manual supplied is simple to follow. Great watch recommend it.

Watch was as shown on all the oictures, and other than the fact that the strap fits a large wrist and has little adjustment I would recommend it to any one. The Titanium finish is very nice being lighter weight and not as flashy as the SSteel. Havent found any bad points yet and as long as the solar charging works, a problem I have experienced with another make, I am sure I will be still saying good things about it in the years to come.

Bought for me as a gift by my wife. Watch OK! packaging rubbish. It arrived in a thin cardboard box which had been squashed in transit. The watch inside was not retained and was rattling round lose. Would have thought such a good product would at least refelct good packaging.

I wanted a timepiece for my Fathers 80th birthday. It had to be something reliable with both digital and analog facilities. I also wanted a watch that adjusts itself, if required, to the correct time with no battery changes. The Casio Wave Ceptor covered all requirements in its stylish and very light titanium case. A perfect gift and very gratefully received.

Only had it a matter of a few weeks and my first impression - probably because its so light - is that it feels fragile but Im sure its not. All the button depressions to access different features seems, even for Casio, very complicated but I know Ill get used to it. All in all though, very happy with my purchase

i have followed the radio controlled watch market ever since it started, and i soon realized there was only going to be one winner and thats casio. this watch the waveceptor solar in titanium is in my opinion the finest radio control they have ever made. please do not be put off by negative feedback on this item. i have another version of this watch in stainless steel and it has performed brilliantly since i bought it in 2005. after 7 years the battery is still showing full, what more can i say, dont forget that this watch started out at over £200 so at its current offer price it is stunning value.

Very pleased with the watch and its appearance. Before ordering I wasnt sure whether the wave ceptor time signal would reach Southern Europe. The watch instructions indicate that the 1,500km radius of the signal just covers Northern Spain. Happy to report that a strong signal has been received daily since purchase. It would be much nicer if the strap was made of titanium instead of SS. Disappointed that there is no countdown timer as this is a feature I use a lot. Dont really understand why it is not included.

I did not find it difficult to decide to purchase this particular watch as I found it had all the requirements I need in a timepiece. I like my watches to be super accurate, and no fuss which this gives me. It just surprises me how reasonable the price is for all the technology stuffed in the case. One point I would make is either alter your strap using the online service or add the tool to your basket when you buy the watch as it makes it so much easier.Buy the watch you will not regret it.

This is the second Wave Ceptor watch I've had from Casio. The first lasted over 6 years and was very reliable until the battery started failing. This latest one is so much better looking, with numbers on the dial and is 100metre water resistant, another improvement.
I really appreciate the high accuracy achieved by daily updating, which is done automatically overnight. If it lasts as long as its predecessor I'll be more than satisfied.

Brilliant watch, this is the third Casio Waveceptor in the household. Looks good, feels good, and most importantly keeps time spot on. Also has very easy to use stopwatch, alarms, and world time. Only picks up radio signal in Europe, but this is fine unless you spend long periods elsewhere. Don't worry about other people's comments about parts of the case being plastic. If it was all metal the radio signal wouldn't get picked up. Titanium bracelet lighter than stainless steel and easy to adjust with a cheap tool from Amazon. Overall a superb product.

I am impressed with this watch. It is at the height of technical sophistication since the first watches was develped in the 14th century with a weight of 227 kg loosing or gaining as much as 1 hour a day. This watch periodically receives a radio signal, which checks its accuracy against an international time signal. This makes it the most precise watch I have ever had. It is theoretically accurate to one second in about 30 million years.

In addition it is super light and still strong - I am glad that I ordered the titanium version. The other features such as alarm, world time, stop watch etc. are added benefits. I am surprised to get such an excellent watch at such a reasonable price.

On the negative side as I travel a lot it would be nice if it could receive radio signals outside the Western European continent with multi band features (including US, Japan and China).

The plastic in the bracelet should be titanium instead.

Watch was a present & recipient really loved the fact that it is both radio controlled & solar powered. Can't give a constructive review as only just bought watch. Doesn't appear to need alot of daylight to function correctly - this was the only thing that concerned me prior to purchase. Watch set itself to correct tiem immediately it was taken out of the box.

This is the fourth titanium solar waveceptor that I have bought, so you could say I am a fan. Two were gifts, the other to replace one damaged by a bed lamp. I now know for certain that the lens is plastic - as it melted and cracked under the light while I was in the shower! The watch had lasted 4 years with no scratches on the glass, so that did not stop me buying another.
The battery is still fine (warranty is for 2 years) The case is a mix of titanium and resin (probably helps with the radio reception) and after 4 years there is some scuffing. My son (one of the gifts) has managed to inflict more damage in less time, so I guess mileage will vary.
Otherwise the watch is excellent - it is rated to 100m so it can go swimming, has solar and s with the radio reception - which works even if I am wearing the watch in bed, 15ft from the window, The luminous hands are easily read in the dark, and it has a light for the digital display. My wife has a ladies version which is smaller but weighs the same and is much harder to adjust - this one has 4 buttons and is workable without the manual.
Casio do one which is solid titanium with a sapphire lens, but it is £300+ and only 30m waterproof.
For the money this watch is excellent value,
I have put up a picture showing a new and a four year old watch side by side, so you can see the wear

I chose this watch as I had previously owned a very similar one. I went for this one as it has a titanium case and strap making it very light to wear.

The watch sets itself every night and when checked against other accurate time sources it is exact.

This model only picks its time signal from 2 zones in Europe and will not set itself while in the Americas like some other more expensive models do, so if you travel to these parts and need the hands on the watch to show the correct time you will need to manually change them or read the time from the digital display which shows time from around the world.

All in all a nice smart and accurate watch which I would recommend.

My wife bought this for my 40th after I showed an interest. The reason I showed an interest into this watch, and Casio in particular, is I have had a G-Shock Waveceptor watch for nearly 5 years now and apart from some of the plastic which protects the face glass it is still in great condition. This watch is much lighter than I expected and is definitely lighter than the G-Shock but I guess it hasn't got the protection of the G-Shock surround (or system). However, it does look very smart in it's titanium colour and even on my sizeable wrist it is feels very comfortable and it well made. Yes it comes with only a 2 year guarantee but if it is anything live my G-Shock it won't need to ever be opened or sent back. The best thing about this watch is it checks daily to make sure it is in perfect time, and with the solar powered battery should last a long time.7

I bought this to a now much older Wave Ceptor 3353 which has had a hard and long life. It has never failed, it has always been correct and for me has been the perfect watch.
It just looks a bit shabby and well travelled (like me).
The new one is pretty well identical in features but lighter due to the titanium content and more swish. Setting it up was no problem as I had done it all (once) before. I love this watch it is crammed with technology and has always risen to occasion when world travelling (If you go to Las Vegas your watch will syncronise to the radio clock in Boulder, California). The other thing I like about about it is it looks, sophisticated but in an understated way, it is stylish and can be worn at any occasion but it never hints at how clever it is. I love to watch the seconds hand when the radio pips sound and the see the hand hit 12 exactly as the last pip sounds (don't try this on anything digital the delays through the system send the pips out by a couple of seconds, AM or FM is best). There is nothing bad about this watch but unless you have the right tool for the job get the strap sized before delivery.
There are some trival aspects which could be improved but for me it has a proven track record on reliability so if it 'aint broke it doesn't need fixing.
This is a watch to just wear and enjoy, it doesn't need you to do anything to it even when the clocks change. You will find you will never want to wear another unless like my old one it's been knocked about and scuffed over the years.

Very pleased with appearance and light weight and found it easy to set up. The tiny light was a disappointment. I cannot read the small digital screen with that, which is difficult anyway if the hands are between 5 and 7, and it did not help reading the analogue hands at all. Fortunately the luminous hands are much better than average and last through to the early hours. What happened to the old Casio equivalent of the Timex 'Indiglo' That was a very good system

After 3 days playing the watch and using the Internet and the Casio site to obtain workable instructions managed to set the watch up on B.S.T.
The instructions enclosed with the watch are far too small and don't stay open at the page you want.

The watch works fine with no problems.
If you have a small wrist then this watch could give you a problem with a diameter of approx 45mm and 13mm deep.
The Titanium strap - if you thought you could adjust the strap yourself - forget it. You need the experts.
The styling is good with it's general silver look.
Again, your need to study the instructions for the addition for stopwatch and world city times.
Alarms- all right for day use, but not for early risers or those, like me, a bit deaf.
Overall a good watch, easy to read. It's a pity the instructions enclosed with it are so small. Download from the Internet on A4 paper.

It is both functional & stylish in the extreme.
Although I have only had the watch for a relatively short period I would still certainly recommend it for anyone who wants a fantastic looking,accurate & multi function watch for a relatively inexpensive price.
For someone with less than perfect eyesight the day / date function legibility is one of the best I have come across.

First impression was how handsome the watch is: the grey dial is good-looking but understated. Also, for such a feature packed time-piece it is not flashy, fussy or turnip thick, and the titanium case and strap make it lightweight. I needed a couple of days to master the numerous settings, but now that I have done so I am enjoying chronograph accuracy, no adjust date and thanks to the indian summer a permanently full charge. I have no regrets whatever.

Compact watch which is nice looking and light to wear from being made of titanium. A small amount of grey plastic is also used but does not affect visual quality of watch. Great feature is the waveceptor which keeps it accurate and 'digital' features such as date, stopwatch, alarms, etc. are a bonus. Overall an excellent watch.

First impression upon opening the box was that it's somewhat chunkier than I'd anticipated. No matter I've got a pretty chunky arm. If asked 'd say this watch is not for the slighter build. However being titanium (and resin - wher the strap connects, will see how that holds up) it is very light. Lighter even than my old titanium Seiko which this s (as it stopped being a watch and turned into an aquarium).
As for functionality and practicality I do lik it. Within 10 mins I'd got it synced with the radio transmitter. It's not lost a beat since - it retunes/checks itself every day.
The concept of being solar powered and therefore not replacing the batteries appeals greatly.
Only time will tell if it can face up to the challenges of my rough and aquatic lifestyle.

The watch is very attractive and includes many useful features such as automatic time keeping, alarms, stopwatch etc. and for a metal watch, it's weight is very light.

Looks good but not quite the same as the picture. The instruction booklet is confusing and not very helpful. The alarms are rather quiet and it doesn't seem to be easy to adjust the timezone when travelling. On the plus side, the strap is comfortable, has a good catch on it and it is clear and easy to read. I'm happy but it could have been so much better.

This watch is the answer to the three main issues I have with watches:

1 - It sets the time and date automatically (even comes pre-set out of the box)

2 - It charges itself (comes "medium" out of the box - needs only 5 minutes/day in sunshine to stay charged)

3 - It can easily switch from one time zone to another - with the option to show the travelling zone on the digital clock while keeping home time on the analog.

As you can see from the picture the face is nice and chunky but it is still quite light due to the titanium.

The product was just as I expected, a good quality watch. I like the fact the item has an alarm on there. I didn't like the fact you can't engrave words on to the back of the watch. The style of the watch was just as I expected, it is a Grey colour which I like. I found the watch wasn't too big, was a perfect fit. I would certainly buy this as a present for someone in the future. Many Thanks.

I have been looking for a watch for a long time now, I am extremely happy that I found this one, it looks perfect! Can't stop looking at it or just 'playing' with it. Menu is easy and understandable. Color is nice, watch itself is rather dark gray(metallic) and background is dark blue(#000A19). Casio's great work of art - I'd say.

If you still haven't decided - this is the one for you! You will not fail when purchasing this watch.

Pros:
1) Very light!
2) Easily adjustable wrist band
3) Very clean / classy look
4) Alarm, date, stopper, light
5) no noise
6) Numbers and hands are with phosphor

Cons:
1) Haven't found anything yet

This is an extremely good watch for a regular traveller. I am constantly crossing time-zones, living in France and travelling to UK, Greece and Turkey, Portugal etc. Previously, making the necessary changes to the hour, upsets the accuracy of the watch, as you have to move the minute hand as well; with this watch all you do is click a couple of buttons and the watch is syncronised to the atomic clock in the time zone concerned! Perfect and simple!
It is a light and good looking watch to wear and has the elegance of designer watches costing many times the price paid. Therefore, it is very good value for money and does not feel like a "cheap" watch. Also, the solar power feature is excellent, meaning it is "low maintenance".

This is the second of these watches I have bought. The Waveceptor function keeps perfect time, changing from summer to winter time automatically, but only works within Europe . You can set the watch to any time-zone in the world by selecting country. The solar cell means the battery never has to be changed. Great looking watch and worked perfectly out of the box.

A good looking lightweight watch with a clear and easy to read screen. It has a black face and titanium band and case.It looks after itself with regard to extremely accurate time keeping using the radio waves from an atomic clock. It depends for its power on a battery that is charged by the sunlight. It remains to be seen how long this battery lasts before it needs to be replaced. It has a large face but I am not particularly big and it suits me fine.

This is an excellent watch. I have owned a Casio Wave Captor for about 5 years. The only reason I had to purchase a replacement was that I wished to have a Titanium version of the watch which is significantly lighter. In five years I have never had a problem with the Casio, have never had to reset it as it has kept excellent time and this includes changes from summer time to winter and vice versa.

Would recommend this watch to anyone.

Bought this watch as a spare to save a similar but more expensive Seiko.
Very nice and light. Grey face is very clear and the day/ date display is clear and visible.
Good looks and features, I am very happy with the purchase, very good for the price.
One drawback is the face is easily scratched, I did this just wearing it casually.... looks like a plastic 'glass'....

I bought this watch to replace a heavy kenetic powered one. I chose it because it would be much lighter as its made of titanium and solar powered.

I wanted a watch that would pick up a time signal which this does in the UK amd Germany. Also being partially sighted I needed a clear watch with a large face and this one is easily readable. Even the LCD display is clear as long as its well lit.

I was expecting a blue face on the watch as pictured but its grey. It also doesn't like being left on its side overnight to pick up the radio signal. Leaving the watch face pointing up seems fine though. It takes 2 minutes at midnight (every hour till 4AM) to read the time signal which seems a bit overkill to me. Still it only stops the second hand so you can still read the time.

The best watch I have owned to date and am very pleased with its looks and functions.

The watch was purchased as a present, and so far very pleased.



The watch has a clean sleek design. It is relatively light weight (a benefit of the resin case – you should note that only a part of the case is made of titanium – not the whole body). I previously had a resin case on my old Casio, and unfortunately it does not age well, in order to preserve the appearance longer I recommend that you avoid bangs and scrapes (they always appear worse on resin cases) along with prolonged spells underwater. The pictures on the website show the background as dark blue in colour, but it is grey. All in all a good looking watch.



The watch is easy to setup and the radio controlled time-keeping works well. It has a clear analogue display and the usual functions that come with a digital watch. The digital functions are fairly intuitive and therefore easy to use. The light only illuminates the digital part of the phone, not the whole background, but the hands do come with luminescent strips.



The clasp is well designed and the strap was easy to adjust. The bezel has scuffed already, so I do not expect for it to keep it’s ‘new’ appearance for too long without care and attention when wearing it.



So far I have not had any battery problems and the battery level indicator has not fallen below the middle level.



The watch does not come in a usual plastic watch presentation box, instead you are provided with a cardboard box. Great for the environment and costs but not so good for display purposes (for those who are looking at giving this as a gift). The instruction manual is typed in extremely small font and fiddly, I recommend that you download a copy from the Casio website.



I think this is a great functional watch for the price, and includes some more advanced specifications (solar powered and radio controlled) to make it appeal to those who want a little more than your usual run of the mill timepiece.

Great watch. So light, which was a key factor for me buying a watch with a metalic bracelet.



I also have small wrists for a guy of my height (5'11") and was concerned with some of the reviews here about the size, but it really isn't that big at all and fits very nicely on my wrist - I took 4 links out and its snug. The main thing is that I do not notice i'm wearing it, and for someone who hasn't worn a watch since my retro £12 casio at school it's an important compfort factor.



I had an issue with the date being set to 2011 for some reason but having changed that everything is spot on. Slightly technical to get used to all the functions of timekeeping and the instructions are quite fiddly, but once you get used to it it's great. I got the digital copy here to save squinting: http://waveceptor.casio.com/resource/manuals/module_3311.pdf



Light not lighting the whole face is a slight asthetic disadvantage but you can see the time on the digital read out so in terms of function it works.



Everything is clear and concise. A simple, elegant watch for all occasions.

This is a christmas present so not sure what the recipient will think just yet!

My first impressions was that the watch seemed very light and flimsy compared to what I have been used to with steel watches, but then realised this is the characteristics of titanium! It looks to be a great watch and a great price compared to that on the high street.

Elegant and super lightweight tech watch for small money.



The watch case has a titanium ring around the dial, but the case itself is plastic (not titanium, as stated in Watchshop's website). Painted plastic is showing between the ring around the dial and the bracelet. The paint is correctly colour matched to the titanium. It is OK for me, but may be disappointing if someone expects a 100% titanium watch.



The glass seams to be plastic too... not sure what Watchshop means with crystal.



The nice polished bracelet scratches almost immediately it is worn.



The watch did no ship in the box shown in the website. It was actually a cheap looking cardboard box. The manual is impossible to read... download and print the manual from CASIO's website instead.



Pictures in Watchshop website are better than the pictures in CASIO's website.



Anyway, after 3 weeks of daily use, I do not regret having choosen it.

This is the latest and best of a series of Casio watches I have had over the past 25 years, some of which are still going in the drawer. Only batteries or broken straps (resin type after swimming in sea especially) have been the trigger to renew. So now I have it all - solar recharge means this will not need to be opened up for a very very long time. I love the ARC Wave Ceptors anyway and this one auto synchs to Germany and UK so I could spend a long time almost anywhere in Europe without a care & 1 second accuracy & auto DST change. It is lightweight with shock absorbers so great for sport and very waterproof so i never have to take it off. It will be interesting to see how long the rechargeable battery lasts. You even get stopwatch & thrown in without sacrificing the simple styling with extra dials. Hard to imagine a better watch for telling the time especially if you travel the world & live in Europe, but bring the instructions with you!

For me a watch has a very simple but vital function.......ie to tell me the time as accurately as possible and be easy to use requiring little or no maintenence. This casio fits the bill perfectly, it is super accurate thanks to the waveceptor technology, the solar cell means there should never be a battery change and it is simple to operate. The titanium model looks and feels good, light, strong and really good quality. It is the best watch I have ever bought.

This watch provides all the functions that I require i.e. radio-controlled accuracy, solar powered, sweep second hand, easy-to-read dial and three alarms. It is very light in weight and is hardly noticeable from that point of view. Full dial coverage for the backlight was one of my criteria but that has been cancelled now that I have seen how good the luminous hands and hours are. As a personal preference, I would have chosen a non-metallic strap but now that I am using it, I don't have any problems with the strap at all.

Setting the watch up when I unpacked it was easier than I expected and in a few minutes it was all systems go! I would have no hesitation in recommending this watch to anybody.

Nice watch, I'm glad I brought this model. The colors are more like these here than on the Casio website.



Good points :

It is so light! I need to get used to it, the first days, I didn't notice I worn it.

The technology inside is awesome, radio control and solar power are the key features. This model is the best rapport price/functionalities.



Negative points :

The face isn't back lighted, the hands and the numbers just glow in the dark.

The numeric display is a bit too small.

There isn't anything that I can find to dislike about this watch. It has everything that you could wish for, plus; you will never have to buy another battery; you will never have to hang around for a time signal on Radio 4 to set your watch. You could rely on the town hall clock, but that's hardly convenient.

I especially like the button controls, they don't stick out as though they were an after-thought, a nice neat design touch.

The inch thick manual is difficult to use, it takes two hands just to hold it and turn a page. If you have as much difficulty as I had, then the better option is to go to the Casio website:

www.casio-europe.com/euro/watch/waveceptor/wva-430tde-1a2ver/ then click on PDF Manual. It prints as 6 A4 sheets and looks absolutely scary. It isn't! Once you've pressed a couple of buttons you begin to see the logic of it all.

This is a watch that I don't think anyone would be disappointed with.

I needed a new watch - my watch having just ceased to be after having a recent battery change (moisture got in and killed it!) and with my older watch also ceasing to work (all the silver paint had rubbed off the main casing anyway!). Reason enough to go on a watch hunt then…….

However things were not that easy - I wanted a watch reasonably priced without being flashy, with both traditional hands so I could see quickly but also a bit of a digital so I could see the day and date (so I don’t have to think too hard!). I also wanted it to be waterproof and hard wearing so I could wear and forget. So after much deliberation and comparison I came across this Casio WVA-430TDE-1A2VER and this is what I have to say:

• Ordered from watchshop.com as a new customer after finding on the internet. Fantastic service with the watch arriving less than 24hours later with the strap pre-adjusted so it fitted straight out the box.

• The watch was far lighter than expected and probably weighs less than any watch I’ve ever had. I had to tap it a few times to make sure it was real! The strap itself is also very light but feels secure enough when wearing. However this makes it even more comfortable to wear.

• I went for this model with the Titanium finish (from previous experience the silver/steel ‘painted’ finishes do tend to rub off exposing the plastic underneath). It appears to be a nice solid finish and doesn’t have the sheen of stainless steel and makes for a more subtle look.

• The glass is clear and hands and lcd display are easily readable in daylight. The hands and numbers are luminous in the dark and effective although the light on the lcd is quite dim and you need to look quite close. The face itself is more of a grey slate as opposed to the blue of the photograph.

• The fact that it is also solar powered is great. The idea of never needing a battery again seems promising – no more leaks after changing the battery so will therefore stay waterproof! Requirement passed! Note that Casio seem to advise that the seals be changed every 2/3 years – I guess this may be costly in comparison to the watch itself. But as I don’t do any deep-sea diving I hope that this will not be an issue!

• Radio controlled time – never need to adjust the time again. The time adjusted itself immediately on setting time zone. Got to be a bonus in anyone’s books.

• So put simply it appears to be the watch I was after. It looks clean and sharp without being flashy and certainly have been able to wear and forget.

The watch looks good. It has a lot of extras build in.

Like:

Dual Signal Receiver

Water Resistant up to 100 Meters

1/100 sec stopwatch

3 daily alarms

Solar Power

LED light, afterglow

Auto-calendar

12/24 hour format

Titanium wristband

Titanium casing



But the watch has some drawbacks in materials used around the casing some parts are made from plastic the glass is from plastic too which can damage easily (scratches) if you are not carefully and take you watch off when you are busy building something.

A very easy to wear, light watch. The solar power and the radio control work very well. To make following the instructions for set up, easier go to the Casio Europe website where there is a link to download the instructions as a PDF. I find the instructions easier to follow when printed on sheets of A4.

I also recommend you use the 3D image on the Watchshop website. This gives a much better illustation as to what the watch looks like and its size. Note that the body of the watch is Titanium and resin. This is fine for me but some people may be expecting a 100% Titanium watch. There are other solar/radio controlled Casio watches that are slimmer and/or of 100% metal, so check them out if not completely sure. (eg WVA-M460 or WVQ600)

Since I received the watch I have been amazed by its accuracy and timekeepiing. Even as the pips on the radio approach the hour the second hand is sychronised on the hour!

The only issue I have is the small size of the digital display and brightness of the light.

Overall I am very pleased with my purchase with its comfort, classic looks and value for money.

I am absolutely delighted with my watch. I guess as an Artist I am quite a lazy person and happily gave up my Waltham manual wind watch (21st Birthday present from my parents 42 years ago), for an Omega Automatic, then that for a Tissot Quartz. But being lazy I was frustrated having to wind the manual every night, or adjust the Automatic each week, and even buy a battery every year. However, now I can relax knowing I have the correct time, ALL the time.

Excellent service from the Watch Shop 5 Star in every respect, well done will be a returning customer.



The watch is an excellent piece of modern technology at a fair price, I how-ever am used to a much heavier wrist watch and would personally prefer it to be at least twice it's weight, I know that this is just in my mind because the casio build quality is superb, it's just a feel thing for me!



I have had a few problems regarding initial setup with this watch even though I was stepping through the user manual religiously, yes I actually read it.!

The main problem as I see it was that the buttons do not respond as stated in the user manual, for example press and hold button A whilst in timekeeping mode until the transmitter indicator AT,DCF,MSF, starts to flash which indicates the setting screen. Well I did that and I got ----- flashing, it then goes on to say if the indicator shows anything other than AT, then use the D button to display AT before continuing well I did this and nothing changed and I was not able to set the watch up.

Being an old scroat at the grand age of 58 this may well be down to me, although My trade is in computing, handling some quite serious server systems for schools etc, this watch has got me beat.

I therefore chucked it to one of my business clients, and said sort it out for me, this he managed to achieve, although how I have no idea, but it is at least displaying the correct time, the buttons still do not do anything different for me, as stated above. I will add that my client is considerably younger than me, so not such an old scroat . Perhaps it's an age thing.

Hope it never needs a reset, or re-boot in my language.



To conclude this watch is a very good value timepiece, with excellent build quality, and cutting edge technology, and I must admit it's very impressive to watch it reset the time on the analogue dial at high speed. my only dissapointment is it's so light and not chunky which is obviously a personal preferance, I also wish there was some guidence with regard to what to do should something not respond in the expected/stated way.

Firstly, I must say about the excellent service I had from this company, I ordered the watch on Tuesday evening and I received a e-mail of confirmation. Next day received a e-mail on Wednesday confirming its been packed and had been dispatched, and it was delivered on Thursday, Excellent.

Secondly, the watch I received is made from titanium, its so light and strong. You never need to adjust this watch, or replace the batteries. I am very pleased with the watch and highly recommend it.

This is my second waveceptor watch - and it's a very good watch:

- no need to replace the battery, the solar charging is really efficient.

- sets the time automatically each night without fail.

- several alarms in case you snooze through the first one (you might, it's fairly quiet)



But has a couple of problems for me, the main one being the light. The only part that lights up is the digital 'box' which is small with quite small numbers. The luminescence on the hands is fine when you go to bed, but seems to fade quite quickly and hard to make out (maybe that's just in winter - haven't had it 'fully charged' in the summer sun yet). So when my youngest wakes up at some ungodly hour, it takes about 3 or 4 presses of the light for me to squint and figure out what the time is. The first waveceptor watch I had illuminated the whole dial, making it much easier to read the time at night.



Second niggle is the strap. I'm used to a fabric strap, so the metal one takes some getting used to - annoying when the watch slips down your wrist when exercising. Also, the edge of the clasp sticks out slightly which means that it often scratches my children as I pick them up. Might be just as I have a fairly small wrist, but still annoying.

So would I recommend the watch? I really like it but I have to say that next time I would buy one with a fabric strap, even though the straps need replacing every couple of years. And I must be able to see the time at night - so whole dial illumination.



Excellent service from the watch shop - price matched a cheaper supplier, and the free delivery and sizing makes buying here an easy choice.

Excellent watch, both in value and quality. It is modern in styling but has sophistication, and in the titanium finish is very light to wear. A perfect timepiece which you will never need to worry about; it keeps perfect time via radio signals, and charges itself through a solar light cell. Its digital and analogue time aspects are synchronized completely including British Summer Time settings, plus it offers world time in the 29 time zones. Additionally you have a stopwatch mode offering all the features you would ever need plus a calendar. On top of all that it is easy to read, has night time illumination and is water resistant to 100 meters depth.



What more could you ask for? Only a supplier who offers great service; and with the WatchShop that’s exactly what you get. An informative and easy to use website, price matching where they will undercut any other UK provider, free sizing of the bracelet, and a reliable speedy delivery. If you are looking to purchase a watch, just Stop at the WatchShop, you will not be disappointed.

The excellent reviews that this watch generates are truly well deserved. I can only echo their superlatives. It is everything I was looking for in a watch, excellent timekeeping,waterproof,no batteries required, and a light, stylish titanium finish.

I would also highly recommend the service from WatchShopUK who not only price matched other online dealers but slightly undercut them! A very speedy delivery, Thanks.

The watch is really cool- but its the service i received from the Watch Shop.

Their service is really excellent. I ordered the watch on Monday evening and was wearing it by Wednesday. They kept me informed all through out the process.

It looks better in the 'flesh' than in the photo. My time piece requirements were: an easy to read face; day and date; alarm; water proof; kept good time; avoided the hassle and cost of replacement batteries; and that I could wear daily in business without it being obtrusive.

Crammed with the best of current technology in a modest and purposeful casing this watch meets and exceeds the specifications I set. Titanium combines light weight with strength; to ensure superlative time keeping accuracy 'Wave Ceptor' automatically synchronizes every night with a reference atomic clock via radio link; and the watch face contains an all but invisible solar cell to power a rechargeable battery, that can provide five months of operation between charges. Throw in 3 alarms, 29 time zones, a stop watch, night time illumination, water resistance to 100 meters depth, perpetual day and date calender with automatic 'daylight saving' time changes, all at a very reasonable price I have to say that I am more than delighted with my purchase.

Lightweight, reliable, accurate and tough with an easily read dial, this watch is perfect for everyday use.

My Breitling stays in its presentation box for 360+ days a year. The Casio is my working watch and it's great!

Excellent watch, being titanium makes it much lighter than steele.
Only one complaint and that is that the alarm bleeps can hardly be heard so they are not likely to wake you up.
