I've only had it 2 weeks, so keep that in mind. I really like the idea of the solar recharging battery. My last 2 watches ate batteries at the rate of 1 per year. Nice clasp on the easy to adjust band. Very classy looking face, although under LED light, the hands can be a little hard to see.
I am very pleased with this watch. Having never hearing of the brand name Akribos I did some research and found the watch is from Greece. The name means "precise, accurate" and that descibes the watch. I had to get another watch as my Citizen Eco-Drive watches solar cell gave out and they wanted to charge me $100.00 to repair the watch. I also love my new watch as there are no batteries or solar cells, but rather is an automatic watch that winds as I move my arm. Very pleased!!!!
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.
