Summary: This is an awesome watch. Rugged and comfortable. 3 of us at work purchased the same watch (coincidence) and we are very happy with it. The instructions, though, are not all inclusive. you will have to go gshock.com to get the right instructions. The novel that comes with it does not cover the atomic time keeping. The manual online does, however. It gets its time calibration signal from Fort Collins in Colorado if you live in the US.
Summary: Great Watch. Built tough, the stainless steel bezel is raised above the crystal and provides protection. The case back is 2-3 times thicker than on my ironman. Setup is straight forward, just follow the manual. The button sequences for the various functions were easy to learn. Then watch band is stiff (read tough)but is comfortable to wear. This watch automatically updates the time accuracy each night, setting the correct date and time including daylight savings time.
A watch for those who can't stand changing batteries

Summary: Great watch! I had a few different Timex IronMan watches over the years. Let's be realistic though, I'm not running an IronMan nor am I even remotely enthused by the idea of triathlon-related activities! I use this watch at work in a heavy industrial environment. The watch gets wet, dirty, bumped around on things and hasn't missed a beat. I like the solar function because I can't have it quit on me because it's my many wake-up alarms so that I make it work on time.
