At last I have a watch that self corrects to atomic time. Although only having it for a couple of months (April and May - with lengthening amounts of daylight at 43⁰ N lat ) the small solar panels keep it fully charged. I am hoping it will work as well during reduced sunlight in winter. The stainless/chrome finish looks nice but I'm thinking now, perhaps the black resin would be less obvious.

It has been over a year now and the watch is performing perfectly. I am in the process of getting a black resin atomic solar watch and hopeful for the same results. The process has been delayed by supplier (Area Trend through Amazon) error. Hopefully the new Amazon supplier will fill my order correctly.

I love this watch . You never have to worry about it. And it can seriously take a beating.I bought it for the time memo feature and use it often. My only gripe is that it is not programmed to accept a Saskatchewan time zone (no time change) so I keep having to change it back and forth.

More then what I wanted to spend but worth it. The solar is a great idea. DO NOT TAKE TO THE SOURCE TO CHANGE BATTERYS. They told me they can put a battery in it for $4.00 and then proceeded to lose parts, break parts and then saying, OH WE CANNOT CHANGE IT and then returned it in pieceswith parts missing in a bag. Then told me that they wouls replace it,so I bougt another one and got screwed paying for that as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Gift July 17 2009
By F. C. Maxey - Published on

I purchased this watch for my dad for Father's day...with it's features, I figured the watch would be a great conversation piece for him. His only complaint was the wrist band was too big, and when he called customer service to ask how to adjust it, the customer service person said it could take up to 3 days for him to receive the e-mailed instructions. Of course, when you have a new gift, you don't want to wait 3 days to use it; he actually received the e-mail the next day.

Otherwise, he seems to love the watch and usually mentions it when we talk on the phone. He found out accidentally about the light up feature when you look at the watch for the time and he seemed really tickled by that. He told me the watch adjusts itself every day. I would definitely say the watch was worth the money.

On a side note, I was horrified to learn that Amazon included the receipt in the box with the price even though it was shipped to an address other than the billing address!

Update July 2013: Many years later and the watch is still going strong and my Dad still loves it.
4.0 out of 5 stars Casio MTG900DA-8V timepiece July 10 2009

Just received this watch today. Nice looking and BIG but I'll get used to it. It has everything I've wanted in a watch. My only complaint is in the shipping methods. USPS started it and handed off to FedEx SmartPost. FedEx then transported it to So. Calif & gave it back to USPS for delivery. I know that Super Saver shipping takes a bit longer but it seems like every time the pkg. changed hands we lost another day of shipping time. I think it would be better to have one carrier handle everything. USPS is great and not too expensive for a small item like this.
FedEX is ok also but usually costs more. Once the shipping started I could not track anything. USPS didn't even recognize their own tracking #... Much confusion.
I received the pkg on the scheduled date but I'm not happy about the shipping methods.
The watch rates a 5 star but shipping dropped my rating to a 4.5.

Update 7/11/09 Had to remove two links from the band, I prepared for this task by buying a link removal tool. Didn't need it. This band has spring loaded pins at every link. You need only a small jewelers screwdriver to release the pin at the arrow on the inside of the band. A nice surprise. Make sure you reinstall the pins with the spring end at the arrow.
This is a fine, well designed timepiece that has it all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bought as a gift, this watch is a hit! Jan. 21 2010
By Rick Plavnicky - Published on

I bought this watch as a gift for my hard-to-please 80 year old father-in-law. He prefers the functionality and durability of Casio watches, which is what drove me to this brand. The MTG900DA-8V feature set sealed the deal. It's been about month now and I haven't heard a single complaint - that's a huge positive rave.

The first thing you'll notice is that it's ready to go as soon as it's taken from the box. No fumbling around with settings, the time and date are simply always correct. The display is easy to read and the functions are intuitive.

There was one minor issue, though. The well-made metal band was too large for Harry's wrist and it wasn't obvious how to remove some links to make it right. A quick look on the net fixed that, and my 16-year-old son (better eyes than me) had no trouble removing the extra links. (Gasp - I think he used a steak knife!) I removed one star from the rating for the inconvenience; Casio could have easily included a simple graphic illustrating the band construction in the instructions.

Overall, great functionality at a great price.

Casio Men's G-Shock MTG Atomic Tough Solar Watch #MTG900DA-8V

Over 12 years ago I purchased a Casio G-force model CW-300, and except for the need to replace the solar battery (for $32.00, including postage, installed directly by a Casio service center) after about 10 years of use, it has worked flawlessly despite being knocked around and immersed many times. The only reason I needed to replace the watch was that it had a plastic band that finally broke, and the part is not available any more. Repairing it probably would have cost almost as much as buying a replacement, and I also wanted to get a second, dressier watch anyway. My new watch has a good-looking stainless steel band that was easy to shorten, using a small eyeglass screwdriver. Its functions are identical to my older watch. One of the most convenient features is the ability to instantly switch between time zones when traveling. The hourly and alarm chimes are also useful, as is the automatic light that briefly illuminates the face when it is dark, if you simply twist your wrist up. If my experience with its earlier clone is any measure, I expect the best from my new G-Shock. It looks great and I no longer have need for a second watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's very big and shiny, and does it all Feb. 8 2007

I surveyed vast field of digital choices before getting the watch a month ago, and I'm well satisfied. Most digital watches (as opposed to analog with hour and minute hands) are ugly, IMO, so my surveying has mainly been frustrating. I found a nice line of digital Casio Edifices, with big digits and glimmering colorful faces, which served for a while, but has apparently been discontinued a year or two ago, and my last one quit working two months ago.

I bought this watch, grimacing at the price, just because it wasn't particularly ugly and had big digits, but it exceeded my meager expectations. The manual was a bit of a slog - it took about 20 minutes to read, but well worth it.

The features are outstanding - about 5 alarms, one of which can be set for snooze alarms, the expected stop watch, easy access to Greenwich Meridian Time, markers for noting times, a backlight, waterproof enough for scuba diving (not that I dive).

The special features include checking with a radio signal daily so the time is always correct (important for catching my buses and winning arguments about what time it really is), solar power (so run-down batteries should never be a problem), and backlighting that turns on when one turns one's wrist (surprisingly convenient). A nice touch is when one cycles back to the time, the watch gives a different unobtrusive beep.

There are other features available on other watches - tape recorders, flash drives, altimeters, compasses, but none that sound remotely useful in the long run.

I had to shorten the well-built wriststrap by 5 or 6 links, a little tricky, but any watch shop could do it in 5 minutes.

If you want a big, full-featured, easy-to-read and operate digital watch, this is the one, and I've surveyed most of them.

Post originally written mid-January, this added 2-25-07: I've found there might be problems with battery life, or maybe it is just the Seattle winter. I've had to leave my watch sometimes under a light when the power get low, and changing the battery can only be done by Casio, according to one watch shop. Also, the price on the watch is coming down quickly to more reasonable levels. I still like it a lot, despite having to juice it up from time to time.
