Amazing Time Piece!
31 January 2012
Summary: I like to think of myself as an amateur watch collector. I don't usually drop too much money on watches, but I do love all kinds of time pieces. I currently have about 15 watches, ranging from Citizen, Seiko, Invicta, SUG, Timex etc ... I was originally thrown off that a "Casio" would have such an expensive line. I always thought of Casio along the same lines as Timex and Armitron, just some budget friendly "cheaper" watches.
This is a great watch, and savvy watch actually did a great job on customer service.

Summary: At first, Amazon sent me a returned watch from another customer. Then savvy watch contacted me, and they fixed the problem really quick. I am satisfied by their professionalism, definitively want to buy from them again.
Summary: I love the look of the watch. BUT...what good is a watch that you can't set to the correct time? I have read and re-read the manual. I am absolutely certain I have mastered the "setting home city" skill. I checked each home city against international time zone map. Each city is -3hours off from UTC. I've scoured the web and have not found anyway to adjust/compensate for this. I did however find a few dozen other people that hare having exact same problem.
Summary: I have to lay the background for this review. I have owned quite a few Casio watches -- a cheap "classic" analog watch, a couple of sport watches, a couple of atomic watches (returned) and a couple of G-shock's. I can not say all the experiences were positive. The cheap "classic" watch actually was good, for the money. I don't think you can get anything better in that price range.
Summary: This is my second Casio Edifice. The Edifice line is made in Japan, and a much better quality than other Casio's. I was looking for a new watch with, specifically: black face, black band, dual time at a glance, perpetual calendar, nice looking for dress. When I found this watch, I had to have it. It retails for $250 direct from Casio, so don't pay more than that. I got mine elsewhere, since the one's listed here are over retail.
Summary: This is the first watch I have owned since I was a kid. I found it in the Casio online catalog, and immediately wanted it. Looks great in person. Nice size. It makes a good dress/work watch without looking like "an old man's watch" as my girlfriend would say. I use the date, and day of the week functions. The other displays are not very useful because of the small size, but contribute to the look of the watch.
Summary: I need to write this review because i own this watch and i can say its a great time piece. Looks good, functions perfectly. People complaining about how hard it is to set up need to go back to school and learn to read the directions. Thats why it comes with a manual. Sometimes in life things dont come easy, like "people setting your watch for you at the shop"....sometimes you just have to do it yourself. I need to give it 5* to bump this watch up.
Summary: This watch is useful and looks great. That is what initially drew me to it. I wanted another affordable watch, without a steel or titanium bracelet, that could be worn in a casual, sporty and dress-up environment. When I came across Casio's new line, Edifice, I found the watch I was looking for. With the world time, dual time zone, alarm and solar function, there is little more that you could want from an analog watch.
Summary: This is a very nice watch, but for the money its very hard to set up. I worked on it along time and managed to get it all set. But if one is not carefull it can change just by wearing it, I mean the movement of your wrist can change it. It fits great it feels great, it keeps good time once you have charged the solar all the way up. Ido like the dial although its hard to see, everything is so small, alot going on. Would I buy this watch again?
