For my purposes, this is a great watch. I plan on using this watch primarily when I travel, so it fits the bill with its easy to read hands and world time function. It looks real nice but will likely not attract too much attention since it's not flashy or extremely large. Solar power from any light source and atomic timekeeping make for a worry-free, low maintenance timepiece. All the other functions of a "digital" watch like stopwatch and alarm are a bonus. The downside of this watch is fairly well-known: the 3 small dials can only be read with relatively good lighting. The light on the watch will not illuminate the face sufficiently to read these dials. I think this watch wears smaller than it is because the actual face of the watch is much smaller than the total width of the case. So if you want a big G-Shock watch, this one is definitely not for you.
This watch is not as big as other G Shock watches (which is what I wanted). The dial is easy to read, does not glow in the dark for long (maybe an hour) but you can set the watch to read the digital which is easy to do (which is back lit for night viewing). I have not tried the alarm. The band is not as good as the higher priced G Shock but should last a while. I like the looks and it is a good price I would buy another.
My 3rd G-shock over the last 30 years. This on has all of the options, solar charging, water resistant to 660 ft, and atomic clock receiver which makes it accurate to 100th of a second. The watch is durable if it gets dropped from a long distance, excuse the adage, it keeps on going. The battery on the last watch lasted for over 25 year. The only reason I purchased this new one was the other one I had was getting pretty banged up and was seriously in need a new look. This style watch is a solid investment and more than a durable time piece. I recommend this watch to anyone who needs a solid time piece with long term use.
