Solidly made, and the band is big enough for my chunky wrist, which is not always the case. The rotating bezel indexes firmly. The light is good and bright, and being on a separate battery means I am not afraid to use it for fear the watch may stop prematurely. I find I do not bump the light button accidentally, as I do with some Timex Indiglo watches. At first it seemed that the skeletonized hands were a little hard to read at a glance, but having worn it for a while, I find that is not the case. And it keeps excellent time, right to the second for a week now.
I have had many Casio's and this is one of my favorite. The smart access technology is really unique and gives a great analog feel to a completely digital system. All of the hands are controlled by independent stepper motors which allows each hand to be repurposed for other tasks such as; the second hand can indicate time zone in world time mode, the minute hand can be seconds in chronograph mode, or the hands move counter clockwise using the countdown timer. My only real complaint with this watch is that it has a limited capacity of features compared to all my previous Casio's. The timer will only count down for an hour, the chronograph is only 1/20 of a second increments, and there is only a single alarm with no snooze option. I purchased this watch to provide me with an elegant look for formal occasions while retaining abilities that analog time pieces do not have and it even more than I had hoped for.
Don't have to mess with ordering batteries anymore. Plastic case makes it very light. On the down side.......the "digital" second hand is harder to see and the counter difficult to use when your hands are doing something else at the same time. Plastic face more easily scratched. Overall, a nice "light" watch compared to many of the stainless watches. Less money than the Swiss Army watches that have virtually the same movement. My previous Wenger will stop every so often for no reason. I think, it's the mechanical mechanism for the gears for the dials? All you can do is replace the whole movement (almost $40). Not worth the trouble. Overall, the Casio is a nice inexpensive and light alternate to other watches...and no batteries to replace.
I've been a Casio fan for years. This one has a smart appearance, nice font, well thought out hands. My only quibble is that very occasionally the hands will go off the digital time a bit - worse initially, not bad now - and you have to press and hold the set button 5 seconds, then press another button or two to align hands to noon, then it'll move then back correctly to current time. Don't think it's lack of light, never seen power go below high, and not enough to ship back for, just be aware. And I'd probably combine the date with the day display, not the seconds readout, but minor, and it has a nice set of alarm options including countdown (1 hr max though?). But out of the ones I have, though, it's still spending a lot of time on my wrist.
