Casio G shock Solar Atomic watch # GW5525A-1
Great watch, has no problem syncing with atomic time server, smaller profile than most G shocks. I wear it every day with no problems, also like the solar feature that recharges internal battery. My only complaint is that there are no replacement bands available, at least at this time. I don't need one yet but experience has shown that these type of bands don't last forever and will need replaced at some point. Hopefully, a band will become available by the time I need one. But, don't let that deter you from purchasing this watch, I've very happy with it!
Classic Style, Great Operation
By J. Bellas
G-Shock Solar Atomic Watch is an excellent timekeeper. Noteworthy is the fact that the screen goes blank when it is in the dark, but as soon as it is exposed to light, the black digits re-appear. It is sometimes difficult to depress the light button, but it is well protected from exposure to any type of moisture. The solar power and the automatic synchronization are both excellent features.
Also like the fact that the buckle has two latches. The band is very comfortable compared to most of the Casio watches that only have a single prong buckle.
The watch is easy for use with time zones. An excellent feature if you have to travel into different time zones. Most important of all is that it lives up to the toughness of the "G-Shock" tradition.
Very Cool Watch
I've been a digital watch freak since the first LED watches went on the market. I've had dozens of LED and LCD watches in the decades since, and this watch definitely is the best so far.
First off, the watch came well-packed by Amazon. They estimated eight days arrival time, I got it two and a half days after I placed my order.
I've been wanting a solar atomic for some time now. I've had solar, but not atomic. I was a little dubious of the reliability of the atomic timekeeping function, both because of spotty customer reviews on some atomic models from various people and also because I have a couple of atomic weather stations that I always have to set manually because I can never get the signal. However, I have yet to experience a problem with receiving the signal with this watch. I have always kept it on a windowsill at night, I have not tried locations away from windows yet.
I have thin wrists and was a bit worried that the watch might look ridiculously large on me. However, it is fine. This particular model has a bit of a smaller profile than other G-Shocks, which is one reason I got it.
The buttons are a real bear to push. I was surprised at the amount of resistance, even though I had read comments saying the buttons were tougher to push than on most other brands. I would not recommend this watch to people with arthritic fingers for that reason.
The backlight, while serviceable, is not very bright. However, that could be because the battery is not up to full charge yet (when I got the watch the battery was at "M", or halfway). The manual does give some useful statistics on charging times for different lighting conditions.
Speaking of the manual, unless you are blessed with extremely sharp eyesight, I recommend you find a user manual .PDF file online, download it, and print it out. Casio went with the business-card-sized booklet and the corresponding "how many angels can fit on the head of a pin" font, and though well-written and informative, it was darn near impossible for this guy with middle-aged eyes to read.
I kind of have to wonder why Casio felt it necessary to have a 1/100ths second stopwatch that goes up to 1000 hours, but as they say in the wiring biz, better a foot too long than an inch too short. Also oddly, the countdown timer only starts from a maximum of 60 minutes. A little more balance between the stopwatch and countdown timer time ranges perhaps? However, I'm nitpicking here.
Overall, this is an awesome watch with a neat boxy, 80's retro look to it. It works exactly as advertised, and added to my opinion that Casio is the best overall digital watch maker out there. I recommend this watch wholeheartedly!
