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. It solar powered but can draw energy from any light source. Moderate use on fully charged battery will last about 10 months.
I bought this watch as a gift for my boyfriend on our 5 year anniversary this year. He had been asking for a casual gold watch that he could wear with everything . I have bought Darius some nice watches but never for a price this good ! When I gave it to him he opened it and was excited (mind you, this is a guy who says everything is "ok" "straight" and always says "I like it" but when he opened the box for this watch he said "Now this is exactly what I needed" ! Our anniversary was on the 26th of April but on this past Tuesday he told me again that the watch was perfect and that its so easy to adjust the wristband. My boyfriend has a big wrist . He is about 6 foot and 260 pounds and has not had a complaint about the size of the watch or the wristband.. Great buy! Great price!! Awesome quality!! We are both very happy with this purchase.
I've owned a half dozen G-Shocks. This one is the best. The readout is large and visible from any angle. The strap itself is a matte black which is a lot better than the shiny plastic ones I had before. This is battery operated which is what I wanted. I didn't want one that was solar or synced to an atomic clock. Scratch proof crystal, waterproof to 200 meters, nice, tough, dependable and looks great!
