Casio G Shock MULTIBAND 6 GW-5000-1JF Mens Watch Radio Tough Solar [Japan Import]
About this deal
Home city time and world time display swap in world time mode by pressing the top two buttons (A and B) at the same time Perfect for free diving without scuba gear: the watch is water resistant up to 20 bar according to ISO 22810. And then I’ll end here with the technical specifications and the price of the Casio G-Steel GST-W130L. Although the maximum width of the stainless steel and resin casing may just exceed 50mm, the bezel diameter is 44mm. And that’s the feeling the watch gives as well as being worn. A rather, but not overly large watch which wears comfortable. The price in Europe currently is €299 (including VAT), which in my opinion is a bargain.
A last neat feature I want to mention is the ability to move the hands out of the way. With a push of a button, hands are moving and permit a free visibility of functions in the little round digital displays, like stopwatch or date. Specifications and Pricing world time settings (48 cities), 31 time zones, the additional 2 time zones are for the cities of Fernando de Noronha (-2) and Kathmandu (+5.75)All the upgrades are a positive and may be difficult to resist. Now with the light setting on 3 seconds and the brighter LED I found that could read it in the dark quite easily and the optional DD:MM format also helps legibility.
A G-Shock just the same
For fans of precision: the countdown timers help you to remember specific or recurring events by giving off an audible signal at a preset time. The time can be set to the nearest minute and up to 24 hours in advance. Ideal for people who need to take medicines every day or those who do interval training. My core watches have been or are turning out to be relatively affordable, fun, and largely Japanese… Synthetic resin is the ideal material for wrist straps thanks to its extremely durable and flexible properties.
I am a kid of the 1980s, and although I had some watches before, the first watches I bought myself (being a kid) was a digital Casio W-14 in 1986 or so.The button tones for using the mode button can be turned off. This means that the watch no longer beeps when switching from one function to another. Preset alarm or countdown timers remain active when the button tones are deactivated. Technical amendments and errors excepted. The sizes in figures do not correspond to the original sizes. The daily alarm reminds you about recurring events with an acoustic signal at the time you have set. This model has 5 independent alarms for flexible reminders of important appointments.
Then the new ‘U’ version came out and I bought the GW-5610U discounted to see if the changes made any real difference. Adjustable date format (M.DD or DD.M) and adjustable day of week language (English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian)Whether in Europe, North America and Japan or in the outer reaches of Canada, Central America and China - once the watch has been set to the local time, it receives the relevant signal and shows the correct time wherever you are. In many countries, it also sets itself automatically to summer and winter time. Time indication: hour and minutes (analog, and digital upon request replacing the date) and digital seconds. Calendar: day, month (digital) and date (abbreviated) indication (*). These basic features are all present in one glance. Pushing the ‘Mode’ button repeatedly shows the following additional functions one by one, in the upper two digital windows. Word Time (including UTC as seen in one of my pictures), Stopwatch, Timer, and Alarm. Nothing spectacular or unexpected here. Personalized Settings Invisible solar cells in the watch convert light into energy and supply all functions. A rechargeable battery provides the necessary capacity for operation in poor light conditions.
