Cracking deal for a watch which the reviewers rate over the Citizen Sky Hawk series, been looking at this for ages but the RRP of £600 put it out of reach, now ordered last night.

Top level model from Casio, the Casio Premium Edifice Alarm Chronograph watch utilizes Casio's Smart Access System, using the crown to control many of the functions of the watch, including alarm, chronograph and world time. The watch is Tough Solar, so is powered by light, with an innovative system to ensure the hands stay aligned even when knocked. The watch is also radio controlled, receiving signals from 6 radio transmitters covering most of the northern hemisphere and giving it a perpetual calendar. The case is 47mm wide, and is crafted from solid stainless steel with black ion plating, with a screw down case back for optimal water resistance. Fastened on a matching black ion plated steel bracelet, the watch feels solid and luxurious.
Despite the huge array of features, the watch only features 3 hands and a date, as well a disc displaying the mode and other information, so is easy to read and decipher. The hands and markers are luminous. ©

Prefer the black. On the verge of buying but with already 8 watches, I'm running out of wrists.

nice spot op

interesting the radio time is just the northern hemisphere, which is fine in reality, unless you ever plan to emigrate to Australia I suppose, I am guessing if you went on holiday to the southern hemisphere the time would not auto adjust correctly?

I assume all watches on this technology are the same as they use the same radio transmitters? But saying that the movement is extremely accurate and this model has world time built in so the time would be correct for your location but it wouldnt "check" its self against the transmitters for complete accuracy.

Nice looking watch.....it's a pity the glass isn't sapphire though

I'm looking for a watch for a nice gift. Is this one a contender? I wanted to pay a little less but would go for this if you guys think its a good deal?

I'm clueless with watches having never bought a 'good' one before.

Thanks

In my opinion this is a fantastic watch for the (reduced) money, perpetual calendar (allows for leap year and months with more/less days so the date is always correct), tough solar (never needs a battery or winding), radio controlled (always accurate as it syncs with the atomic clock), stop watch, countdown timer, alarm etc etc etc.

I suspect it's a multiband-6? In which case, there's a JJY simulator available (think it runs on Apple and Android devices) so you could set it to a timezone that would use the JJY signal, sync it, then switch back.

I ordered the black one which has arrived today, it is a stunning watch and in my opinion well worth the £300.
I would say that the RRP of £600 is probably a bit OTT especially as the silver one with the same technology has a RRP of £500, £100 for a bit of black ion coating oO I would put it on a par with the £450 Citizen Skyhawk i also own so at £300 its still a decent saving.

Buy one, you wont be disappointed :D

I love mine, i got a watch repair kit from ebay for a fiver to do the strap adjustment, worked a treat.

Arrived today, it's going back tomorrow, it's a little smaller than I would like and the strap feels a bit cheap, it's never worth £600 rrp, £100-150 is what I would say it's worth ..

Well in fairness, this isn't the top of Casio's ranges, just one of the better ranges that's sold internationally.

You'd easily be able to buy an Oceanus (new) for around 300-400, that was all titanium (treated), sapphire glass, tough movement (so solar and multiband 6), smart access etc... the only problem is, you'd have to order it from a Japanese seller, and effectively have it imported into the UK (plenty do).

That's the reason why Edifice watches don't trample on Oceanus spec (which are all treated titanium, and all have sapphire glass, and all are solar, multiband 6 with smart access).

Whilst I think it's a decent enough watch, there's no way I'd pay £300 for an Edifice, when for not much more you can get an Oceanus.

In my opinion compared to the £400 skyhawk that i also own its a decent watch for £277 (with savings), you'll notice that my earlier posting mentioned it not being worth the RRP but at the discounted price its a good spec, agreed about importing the Oceanus but should Mr customs find out (and i've been caught importing from China), expect a hefty bill on top of the £400 purchase price.

I always factor in import duty in my final cost of anything I've imported.

So far, I've imported 3 watches from Japan (JDM Casios, as it happens), all from reputable sellers, who've declared the correct value, and they've attracted correct VAT (calculable before buying if you choose) on import.

Current Oceanus watches are available from reputable Japanese sellers for around the 300-400 mark, and yes, you'd likely have to pay import VAT on top of that, but although not entirely trivial, it's not a huge cost, either.

If I was thinking of spending around the £300 mark for something like this, then no question, I'd just get an Oceanus. Not that there's anything wrong with it, just that if spending that sort of money, when for not much extra, you can have the true, better offering, then why wouldn't you?

I've bought from cool_boom_japan and japanese-treasure on ebay - both provided fully tracked, EMS packages, and correct custom declarations - I was very happy with both of them, in terms of the whole buying experience and delivery.

Ebay item number: 321600328045, using an import duty calculator, comes out at £345.11 (plus potentially a handling fee by the domestic carrier, in the items I've imported, that's Parcelforce and was 13.50).

So may work out at possibly nearing £100 more, but for that, you're getting all titanium case and bracelet, with hardened, carbide coating. Sapphire glass - but also, that model doesn't have the smart crown - which from what I've read in a few instances, is a bonus.

I have the Lineage version of this watch, which is all titanium, same movement (tough movement) but doesn't have sapphire glass (so there's a point in the Oceanus equivalent), which worked out at around £250, landed, after all import costs. Had the Oceanus equivelent only been about £100 more expensive at the time? I'd have got it. But then I already have an Oceanus.

I've nothing against the Edifice range - I just think when you start spending in the multiple hundreds, they don't make that much sense, apart from to people who aren't aware of Casio's better ranges.

Nice watch but i specifically needed the alarm and count down timer for every day use, nice seller though, added to my favourites.
