Love the watch - so much so that this is the third one I have bought over the years.. Does exactly what I want so why change? The contrast between the face, numbers and hands is goos and the digital part of the display is excellent. Changing time zones is a piece of cake. The only thing with room for improvement would be the back light facility which is so weak as to be useless. Over all a great watch for everyday wear.

The watch does most of what I need from it. It is very accurate, the analogue and digital parts are easy to read and the face is uncluttered. However, the are a few potential problems. Firstly, I dont know how long the battery will last when the watch is worn normally underneath a sleeve. Are replacement batteries easily available and how much do they cost? I would have preferred a normal battery. Secondly, where can I get a replacement watch strap with its unusual double cut out shape? I prefer the normal shape of strap. Thirdly, I would have preferred that the stopwatch had a range of only 60 minutes instead of 100 minutes. this would have made an elapsed time of several hours, such as when hiking, easier to calculate.

This is the fourth Casio watch I have bought over the years. This one is probably the
best as its solar powered, which means no battery changes. That together with the
fact that its controlled by the Atomic Clock at Anthorne in England, or the one in
Maiflingen, Germany, means it is always accurate to the second. Furthermore it
automatically changes from Summertime to Wintertime and back automatically..
Highly recommended and excellent value for money. Speaking of which, I saw today on the Amazon Website that this watch is available from the Watch Shop for £88 - £12 less than I paid two weeks ago.

This has taken the shine of the transaction for me, but cest la vie.

Brilliant watch, does everything I wanted and would last for years BUT afetr 5 years the strap wore away at the fixing hole. Solution? Casio would fit another strap for £77 !!! Exclusive fitting to casio. There is no other way it can be done. RUBBISH.

This watch has great technology for the price, the radio control function working straight out of the box without any setting up. I would say it looks better than it feels the strap is very plasticky, and I dont think it can be swapped. However, it is incredibly light and comfortable. If you want it for sports/outdoors/military you will be happy.

My previous watch was a Casio twincept, I used that for more than twelve years. I was looking for a replacement. I was looking for it for a long time. This one I liked becouse it is a Casio, has good features, attractive price and not so fancy, just looking good. I ordered it from watchshop, becouse it was offered by significantly lower price compared to the local prices. Order handling, order tracking and delivery was correct.
I am using it for some days, here are my impressions:

For:
- light weight
- Solar power - no battery change - no damaged seal - long time water resistancy
- Waveceptor - accuracy all the time - no need for manual adjustment
- rubber strap
- analogue
- magnifying glass - easy to read
- glass cover - less scratches
- luminescent sings and hands - possible to read in dark
- logical menu - easy to handle
- great looking

Against:
- stopwatch for only 99,99 minutes
- light for the digital display only

The watch fulfills my requirements, it has even more features. It is a good choice for anyone who needs a usable reliable no maintenance watch. Good price - value ratio.

Solar powered , radio controlled. No batteries and always right. And not bad looking either. Quite a watch. Casio do a number of such watches. Some are steel others like this one mostly plastic. This does have it advantages in that it is very light yet robust. Casio have a good choice, if this is your style its a brilliant watch.

Functions of this watch already known to me, so I got what I expected. Face is perfect very attractive white on black with a red second hand -- strap a bit of a disappointment, as often with Casio -- rather thunking non-articulated plastic which will break up eventually I think -- and will it be replaceable? That is the question.

Great watch - I love the simple but cool styling, comfortable to wear and of course the WaveCeptor s which mean it's always accurate. I've had the previous model which has been a great watch for many years, but this one is solar powered so doesn't even need battery replacement. Also great value...if you want a stylish, practical, unpretentious watch then this is it.

I am obsessively compulsive about keeping my watches accurate to the second. This watch keeps itself accurate by picking up the time calibration signal from Anthorn, England. Unlike my radio controlled clock, the watch is not constantly connected to the signal. It automaticaly seeks the signal at midnight. You can also tell it to seek the signal at any time, but either way the watch effectively stops for a few minutes while it sorts itself out. If you really need to know the time at one minute after midnight you can turn off the signal seeker.

Despite its quite large size (43 cms) it is very light in weight, and feels comfortable to wear. Although designed as a sports watch it looks smarter on the wrist than it does in the catalogue photograph. I like the slightly convex glass, and the lcd day/date box is easy for my ageing eyes to read.

The watch is well protected against shock and vibration, so I don't need to worry about it while I'm cycling on rough roads and tracks. So, as it is water resistant to 10bar, and never needs a battery, it's pretty well wear it and forget it.

The watch arrived quickly and well packaged.This is a gift for my husband so the review is not based on his thoughts but mine.It has a black face with good sized numbers on an uncluttered face.Perfect for those with out good eyesight.Digital calender on the face is not too large.When I took it from the box it was right time and date and as it is automatically set via airwaves my husband won't have to fiddle about changing the time in summer/winter and when we holiday abroad.As it is Solar powered we dont need to worry about the batteries.He hasn't got it yet(Santa is coming for it later in week!)so I am unable to comment on the other bits the watch is able to do but as it is waterproof then he won't have to worry about removing it when cycling in rain or washing up!I'm not sure how he will feel about the rubber strap as he's had leather before but this will probably be more durable.In all a good purchase .

Seems to be a good watch.

But:plastic glass (I'd prefer mineral one); resine bracelet can't usualy live over two years before breaking, like another similar Casio I have; the "how to use" manual is a bit complex & requires a good memory.

Having studied the market quite closely, finally settled on this fine looking Casio atomic-timed, solar powered, Wave Ceptor watch. Full of all the most useful features that I needed but minus all those unnecessary ones that most of us never use. I placed my order with Watchshop at 3.30pm on Friday and 17.5 hours later at 9am on Saturday this,very attractive,watch duly arrived. Great price, great service. Well done WATCHSHOPuk.

My partner was looking for a radio controled watch (like the clock on the wall in the office). Thought it was a bit far fetched and more from a SciFi movies. But looked online, found this site, chose this neat, solar powered, easy-to-read Casio. Delighted. Did not stop there, I was looking for a new watch for me too, had looked at Lorus or Pulsar. Went for a Casio too! After 2 days cannot leave without Wave Ceptor!

I needed a new watch for daily use that was lightly more "sports" looking than my steel bracelet watch, so was looking for a highly functional and comfortable timepiece rather than a complicated multidial, overly technical or fashion/jewellery watch. My previous watch which I have used daily for 10 years was, and is, a Pulsar Kinetic with a similar black face and white numbers which I personally find easier to read than black on white so was looking for the same analogue numerical display. I also like the fact there is no need to wind or change batteries on the pulsar. On these counts the casio satisfies all my requirements, the waveceptor technology is great and worked straight out of the box and I would expect this is where the bulk of the cost is invested. It has a large, but not massive, easy to read dial and is very easy to read at a glance. The watch is light and comfortable and I am not aware I'm wearing it, although in hot weather perspiration does build up under the strap. The strap is not a clingy rubber though so doesn't irritate. I have only had this watch for a week so have not tested all the functions fully yet and have not been abroad with it yet to test the auto time, although this seems straightforward enough. The small digital display is easy to read the date and can be switched to time, stopwatch or alarm easily and intuitively. I haven't used these functions much but the stopwatch would be too small for any accurate recording [racing laps or running times for instance] but then I would use a full stopwatch or monitor if I needed this. The light does only light the digital display and the luminous hands won't last long after the light fails so don't expect to read this in the dark easily, again this doesn't concern me overly but would be a "nice to have" permanent luminous hands. Overall so far I'm very pleased with this watch, I'm a little concerned about the strap longevity but other reviews have given this good marks, I guess time will tell [!]. This watch does what it is supposed to well, it's comfortable, inconspicuous, easy to tell the time on and low maintenance; you can just "watch and go".

Its smart enough without looking too posh, practical as it's waterproof, and as easy to use as any other Casio digital without the need to have to change batteries or set the time.

I was looking for a watch to replace my old Casio analogue/digital.

This watch although not a direct replacement has a few extras which attracted me to it.

It is solar powered and has radio-controlled atomic timekeeping which means I don't have to open it to change batteries. It also has stopwatch and three alarms and Led illumination. I find this watch superior to my last Casio which I have had for over twenty years, but I have just moved up the product ladder so to speak. I am extremely satisfied with this watch and would recommend it to anyone.

Watch was the best I could find, amazing that I couldn't find exactly what I wanted with so many offerings. Don't like that the light only works on the digital part of the watch and not the analogue and don't like that the date which is displayed in the digital part keeps disappearing and it is not obvious how to get it back. Which reminds me, I must get the instructions out again.

I wanted a watch that keeps time accurately, which I don't have to fiddle with when the clocks change and did not need a trip to the shops every time its battery needs replacing. That covers convenience. I wanted a clear analogue face - fast and easy to read time, a day and date display and a couple of easily set and heard alarms.



This watch does all this and moreover it will withstand the odd ducking when I'm fishing and as a convenient bonus I can read it easily in the dark. Its not to big or heavy either.



This Casio watch does all you could ever want (and more) in a practical timepiece. Next day delivery and works straight out of the box: Thank you Watch Box!

I have purchased this watch for the two features it has, solar powered battery and automatic time update. It picks up the time calibration signal transmitted from Rugby, England and the signal from Maniflingen in Germany. I am very happy with my purchase and the watch looks more attractive than the image. I am also very pleased with watchshopUK service and superb communications through the email. Very fast service indeed, I ordered my watch on Tuesday night, arrived on Thursday morning first class free delivery. Definitely, I will use WatchshopUK again and I have recommended it to many freinds.
