Could not be more satisfied both with the service and with the product. Would recomend Watch Shop to my friends and will use again if I need to.

Excellent watch. Light, stylish, just what it said on the Internet. A little complicated to set it up but once mastered it is brilliant

The watch meets all my requirements. The solar energy means no battery replacement and the wave ceptor ensures timekeeping. The day/date display is also a plus. With all of its capacities the watch is still neat with the setting buttons close to the body. The hands are very clear and the luminous quality strong. With an attractive metal strap the overall style is very attractive.

I decided on purchasing another Casio having owned several in the past and having tried and tired of other manufacturers that have not withstood the test, in terms of longevity, style or function. This watched appeared to tick all the boxes and the reviews where on the whole excellent and any criticism appeared to be making only small complaints. Having now received the watch I would make the following observations.
1. The style and overall look of the watch is first class, looking far more expensive than its actual cost.
2. The functions can be at first a little overwhelming, but like any new item it takes time to adjust to the new technology, its functions and how they are achieved. It is also certain that many features are probably not required and certainly not on an everyday basis. I will take time to learn the features as and when they are required.
3. The instruction booklet is comprehensive and no doubt contains all the information required to fully operate the watch, but it is small that makes it difficult to see and find what is required. I would have liked to seen an accompanying booklet which gave information on the basic settings and functions of the watch. I am pleased to say that this information is available at the Casio website and is of considerable help. The small booklet for example does not give all the codes for the cities and as this is the first thing you are asked to do it makes it quite difficult. The booklet at the site above does give this information and therefore is essential.
4. The watch strap is particularly elegant and contains a push clasp to open the bracelet to put it on or take it off the wrist. This makes the watch particularly safe and has little chance of accidently opening as with some watch bracelets.
Overall I am very pleased with my purchase and hope that it will serve me well for many years to come

LED light
A light-emitting diode LED is used to light the watch face.

Solar Power
A solar cell provides power to charge the battery for operation.

Radio signal receiver EU
A built-in radio signal receiver ensures that the exact time is set across much of Europe. This watch can pick up radio signals from Germany and the UK. The time can be set manually when or if you are not in these particular areas

A luminous coating provides illumination in the dark after a short exposure to light.

World time function
Shows the current time in major cities and areas around the world.

Stopwatch function - 1/100 sec. - 100 min.
Time lapsed, interval time and end time are measured to the nearest one-hundredth of a second.

The daily alarm reminds you of events that recur every day, by emitting an audible signal at the set time. In addition, an adjustable alarm alerts you when every full hour has elapsed. This model has three independent alarms that can be used flexibly to remind you of important appointments.

Automatic calendar
Once set, the automatic calendar continuously displays the correct date.

12/24-hour timekeeping
Times can be displayed in 12 hour or 24 hour format.

Great looking and lots of features. Good length of strap and clear face. Like it as I dont need to change batteries and no wind up to get caught in pockets.

A very good item. The watch is very clear and easy to read. The automatic element is attractive i.e. you put it on your arm and forget it except to see the time or date.
It is fairly heavy on the wrist and the chain is heavy. As a suggestion a strap alternative would be useful.
The workings are quite complicated but when set up - and in my case I needed help - it works well. Generally a very good product.

I took a long time choosing my watch. I wanted the latest technology, simple classic design and comfort.

The radio-wave accuracy and the solar charging answered the first question, the design the second. What I didn’t expect was just how comfortable the watch would be. It seemed a little chancy from the pictures but it is just the right weight and incredibly comfortable on the wrist.

On the negative side, well not much. The light only illuminates the digital display and the alarm could be a touch louder. Otherwise, I am very pleased indeed with my purchase.

Would I recommend it to others? Most certainly.
Would I recommend the Watch Shop? Definitely!
