Verified Purchase (What is this?)
WOW That should be all the reviews this watch needs but as you're still reading I'll continue. First off I had excellent customer support from Nigel O'Hara with a minor and acceptable issue while ordering this watch and would recommend using them to anyone. Now for the watch. First off I'll give you a warning. If your wrists are small or you don't like big and heavy back away now. This watch is HUGE at 48mm wide and 15mm thick and around 175 grams it's a hefty lump of metal to be sporting. Now I've wanted this watch for a number of years (this is the 3rd generation of Skyhawks) and now that I finally have it I'm glad I held out and didn't go for one of the cheaper Casio ones that have a similar look / feel. The build quality of this watch is outstanding. The clasp and strap feel solid and it doesn't pull the hairs on my wrist very often. The bezel has some slight haptic resistance but it's smooth enough to be rotated with the tip of your finger. The two buttons and crown are easy to use and feel sturdy. The two LCD displays are brightly backlit and the dial markers and hands are luminous. It's water resistant to 200m. As for the functions well there's not much it can't do. You have 43 cities to choose from. It uses 1/2 hour timezones unlike some watches that only do whole hours. India for example has a 1/2 hour UTC offsets. Also there's a 99 minute timer, 2 alarms, and a 1/100 second chronograph that goes up to 24 hours. Other things that make this a must have for me are the Eco-Drive and that A-T in the name. Eco-Drive means it's solar powered so you'll never have to replace the battery. A full charge will last 180 days without charge though any light will give it a charge, even indoor lighting. If you were to lock this beauty away in the dark the charge would last for ~180 days. The powersave function (that can be turned off) shuts the watch off when it's not getting any light for a while so for instance when I opened the box the watch wasn't moving for a moment until the light hit the dial and it sprang to life. It's not done it again since i've been wearing it and has remained at full charge even in cloudy old Worthing. The A-T in the name stands for Atomic Time meaning it'll always be the right time and even adjusts for British Summer Time. In the UK it's getting its signal from Germany and worldwide there are 2 signals in Japan and 1 in Colorado in the US. You can manually set the time and force it to update whenever you like though it does it 3 times a day until it's successful. The calendar function is perpetual meaning it's even smart enough to not be fooled by leap years. The outer bezel markings function as a slide rule and I'm still trying to get to grips with it but it's as easy as any slide rule I guess. I should really say something negative about this watch but it's hard to do. It is very heavy and takes some time to get used to the weight. It is mildly anoying that you need to pull the crown out in order to switch between functions and some more variety in screen combinations would have be nice but over all the watch is just what I wanted. I'd give it another star if I could!
Excellent 5/5
