Sporty yet elegant

Summary: I like this watch because it is sporty yet elegant, in other words --versatile. In terms of design, the green dials and yellow markers are a good contrast to the black finish. The only drawback of this watch I can think of is that the instructions to operate its many functions are a little complicate for my liking.
Practical piece once you get past the learning curve

Summary: After browsing for a dress watch for a few months that matches what I want, bold solid construction, good time keeping, automatic movement, contemporary looks, I settled for this unlikely candidate. As it turns out, this watch fits my needs quite well. First of all, this is Casio, which I think most folks associate the brand with the G-Shock line of watches--digital display, reinforced or padded plastic casing, good time keeping, etc.
Summary: I was amazed at the watches weight, pretty heavy. The watch was very nice looking, so it didn't look cheap. Also, when I gave it to my husband he liked it so much that he wanted to save it to wear on special occasions and "office" work days only; so he wouldn't scratch it up.
Summary: I have a lot of watches & this is by far the coolest. It does about anything you'd ever want from as watch & a whole lot more. This is the first watch I ever owned that I had to read the instructions for, which tend to be a bit confusing, however after reading a couple of times you understand what's going on. I love it & would recommend !!
Summary: First when i recieved the watch I was amazed by the colors, the manufacturing and the tough solar system. But im disappointed now because the black paint is removing from the band and the case. The paint didnt resist more than several months. Casio should put more effort and thinking in the paints.
Summary: I'll get my gripes out of the way first. Too much use is made of the tiny, 24-hour dial on the upper right. It's used to display minutes and seconds in stopwatch mode but the miniscule size makes it difficult to read accurately. Especially when the main hands are between 12 and 3, covering the smaller display. It would be much more practical to use the hands on the main face and move the current time to the small face while in stopwatch mode. Same with setting the alarm.
Summary: For the price range of this watch, I expected way more. A heavy watch without the size, I rather stick to my pathfinders. The finish on the watch was really nice but not enough to change my mind. This watch should be priced at $100-250 since almost all of it was made or encased in China.
Summary: I first saw this watch in a catalog on a flight and was really drawn to it. I waited several months before deciding to buy it because it was pretty expensive for a watch in my opinion. I wanted a black watch and the others I found just didn't look as good to me. I don't think it is really worth what I paid for it but I still really like it and sometimes one just has to pay more. About the watch: The band is mostly a matte black and is Ion Plated stainless steel.
Summary: Well the first thing you will noticed when you get this watch is that it is very solid and heavy. A departure from the other casio watches that I have collected. I love the green and yellow accents - much better than plain old black. The only gripe I have is that the wordings are very tiny and my eyes are definitely not what they used to be, so trying reading some of the details is a bit difficult.
