Summary: had this for xmas and wow,when opened the box to see hands move round and stop at the time which was 1 hour out. shock no read the instructions and set it for (GMT)and watch it do the buisness again,then carry on reading what this watch can do,fantastic bit of kit soon got to grips with it.all you have to do is make sure it gets daylight.
Summary: This is a very well thought out watch. Easy to operate, very quick to set an alarm, for example, with up and down buttons and fast scrolling so you get to the required time really quickly. An example of their good thinking is that when you move through the digital functions, from the normal date view to alarm, stopwatch etc., it beeps each time, but gives a different beep when you get back to the date - very smart.
Summary: This is a nice watch. It is very light and the display is simple and clear. The digital display is clearer than most although I wish there was some kind of lock to stop the function from changing occasionally when I put my coat on.
Summary: I live in Leeds and at two minutes past four every morning the watch checks the time automatically, brilliant. The time is always correct, and sorts out British Summer Time for you. Strap and clasp are better than my previous Casio, and adjustment straightforward. The hands/dial are clear to read, and the luminous paint awesome in dim light or darkness, you do not need the backlight.
Summary: Watch does everything it says and looks good, and is "relatively" simple to operate. The one drawback is getting the strap to fit. Some sellers (but not this one) offer sizing when you order. If you can get this go for it. It's not rocket science, but it takes a while on the net to find the instructions and then you really need professional tools. Alternately for about a fiver your local Timpsons will re-size. Casio however don't seem to like this.
Summary: Excellent watch , but if you wear glasses go to Casio.com and download users guide 3354 after you order watch the PDF download is at least ten times larger than the guide which is smaller than a credit card and 20mm thick. No problems setting it up.
Summary: Before purchasing, my main concern was the size of the watch. I have fairly thin wrists so I was a bit worried it would just look stupidly big and the bracelet would never fit - some reviews suggested it might be difficult to adjust the bracelet. However, a bit of careful nudging of the pins with a blunt nail and my normal household hammer soon got the bracelet to an ideal size.
Summary: I had read the many excellent reviews of this product and I can only say that if you want a light-weight fully featured easy to read wrist-watch give this serious consideration. If I have a gripe it is that the push buttons are a little awkward to use - I find I have to take it off my wrist to use it easily but it does what is says on the tin.
Summary: My wife purchased this Watch as a Birthday Present for me. It is without a doubt a very nice Watch and so light. The saving grace with this watch is that it came ready set up and fortunately I have not managed to sabotage those setting with my meddling. I did try to set it up differently but to no avail and the Manual (which is about a thick as War and Peace) I thought was very difficult to use, I just couldnt get into it at all.
Summary: I bought this watch after a succession of failures due to battery replacements / crown seals failing / suspect seal failures. What I want is a watch that keeps time, keeps out water, has an analogue face and digital functions: and this one delivers. I've travelled internationally and the ease with which you can switch time zone and know that the watch is resetting itself with complete accuracy, to the second, is a pleasure.
