Summary: It's O.K. but the button used to set the analogue time seems to have a mind of it's own, sometimes responding, sometimes not. I hope it'll let me reset the time when we go back to D.S.T. The other disappointment, considering it's 2011, is the note shown in the instructions about the watch's ability to withstand even casual exposure to water. To paraphrase: "Rain drops are O.K. but don't wear it while washing either your hands, or your car".
Summary: Very satisfied with this product. Has all the 3 features that I was looking for. (1) Time (2) Day of Week and (3) Date. All 3 displayed simultaneously for approximately $25/-. This is the second watch of type that I am buying. First one lasted for 3 years .
Just the watch I've been looking for! With one minor kink...

Summary: The digital time and alarms were easy to setup! However, I did get frustrated with setting the analog time. You hold down a button and the analog time is supposed to "advance" automatically. It does...but it's very stubborn. It'll do it then stop. Sometimes it didn't do it at all! I would have to keep trying over and and over and little by little it would start to move more. I hope, and suspect, that it was a low battery.
Summary: This is a great watch. Thin and light weight but feature packed. Two digital times plus the analog one. I keep my digital display in the date mode so that I have quick access to it. Hopefully it will last a long time. The only lacking is a light or a glow in the dark hands, but for the price it's a bargain.
Summary: I travel overseas frequently and need a watch that can keep "home" time, but also show "local" time wherever I am. I set the digital time to "home", but then can easily adjust the analog display of the watch hands to the "local" time wherever I am to glance at during business meetings. My first Casio watch of this sort was purchased in Tokyo at an Akihabara sidewalk shop.
Summary: The watch itself is beautifully slim, simple and lightweight. Appearancewise, I can only really fault the chromium/resin case around the face; it looks a little plasticy compared with the matt finish of the wrist band. However, this is just personal preference. For a relatively small watch, it maintains it's manly appearance well. The wrist band has an elegant locking traveller system that fits even my skinny wrists easily.
Summary: This Casio Men's Dress watch #AQ230A1D is one of Casio's first ana-digi watches, and has several functions, including a dual-time feature. I had worn this watch after college as my first business watch ca. 1981. It lasted for years and years, and then went missing. I spotted it recently at a mall kiosk, where they offered it for $60.00. I couldn't help but buy it here for about $19.00! The watch is still simple, elegant, lightweight and slim.
