You will probably see this along with hundreds of other price reductions at argos now as the main clearance has started. (i'll save u the hassle and tell you that not all clearance items are reduced even if it is displayed as clearance)
The main clearance has started because the next new catalogue coems out next month.

I bought one of the predecessors of this watch for about £30 from an amazon re-seller 2-3 months ago. Don't have a bad word to say about it as 'it does exactly what it says on the tin'. Mine didn't have the solar feature though.

Looks horrible!

does anyone know a serial number or something for this, it hard to estimate worth without knowing exactly what it is

I'n not voting this cold as the saving is good if you really want one, but these watches have been out of fashion for years - I had a baby G back in 1998 when they were the 'in thing'. You can get a much better watch for £65.

I partly-agree with you I mean ok this style of watch has been around for some time but a lot of people prefer this style as some of the new style (supposedly funky) watches will zip straight out of fashion in 6-12 months where as this style is simple and clean so is more likely to still go with whatever wardrobe you have in 10 years...

Also, you are not just buying the style here it has some pretty high-end features (if you're in to that sort of thing) Also, it's the best price for this so I voting it cold just because you don't like the style is a little harsh I think, but your free to your opinion as is everyone I just felt I should chuck in my two pence... :thumbsup:

Radio-controlled timepieces receive regular time and date updates over the air via a constantly broadcast long wave radio signal.

Clocks on sale in the UK either receive their time signal over-the-air from Anthorn in Cumbria (MSF 60kHz), or from the DCF77 European transmitter in Mainflingen, Frankfurt, Germany.

I have a Wave Ceptor (mine is not a G-Shock one) that I bought over 4 years ago and it is still on my arm with the original battery. If absolutely perfect time is what you need then there is nothing better than having set every night against an atomic clock by radio. If you also need a tough durable watch for work then this is a really good option at the price.

It's not pretty but I don't think that is the point of this watch, fashion is irrelevant. More accurate than a £10 grand rolex, and extremely durable too.

Over £100 most places, so good deal

Casio's explanation of radio controlled here http://www.casio-europe.com/euro/watch/technology/radiocontrolled/

Casio call it Wave Ceptor; does anyone know if other manufacturers use a similar technology?
#16
Want one of these! Can't justify £65 though i've just spent too much lately thanks to hot deals!!!
#17
Another handy feature would be (I guess) when travelling abroad it will automatically set the time for that country putting an end to forgetting to set you watch to that country...

Only in Europe though - it's simple enough to change the time zone if you go to, say, America.

I paid over £100 last year for this watch (well virtually the same watch) - can't praise it highly enough, virtually indestructable (even at 1100 rpm in the washing machine :oops:), never needs setting and never needs batteries (charge indicator always shows 'fully charged' even in winter). I'm too old to worry about fashion - I now want a watch for telling the time!

Hmmmm, I'm sure that 'Not' wasn't there when I read it? :oops:

Sorry KittyKate :)

I've reserved one just to have a look!

I have a G-Shock wave ceptor, had it for over 3 years and it is sheer class, 100% accurate and apparently 5 mins of direct sunlight is enough to charge the puppy for 6 months.

I got it for work to have a tough durable watch and now can't live without it lol. I'm just waiting on this one to become more affordable....

Good deal
#23
I have one of these (although slightly different model - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Casio-MTG-900DU-2VER-Radio-Controlled-G-Shock/dp/B000RL4W2E) and highly recommend them. The only slight negative thing i would say is that they are vey chunky, mine being 17mm thick, and therefore not very comfortable to wear all the time, even if you have chunky wrists like me.

great price, voted hot
#24
Solar powered is a great feature as well, you don't need to open it to change a battery and therefore it retains it's waterproof seal.
#25
I just got mine. This is the second one and ther great!.

It's radio controlled, So "They" can know where you are, all the time....you know who....."Them".

Personally, I need to know the exact time the pub opens and closes, so it's a must for me.

It's a sturdy watch.

Couldn't agree with you more! I tell my pub landlord off if he's later opening, now I can prove with some accuracy that he it's late at opening the pub!!!! WOOOO :thumbsup::-D

Love WaveCeptor watches. 100% accuracy and no messing. Voted HOT.
#30
seems a good price, g shock are not primarily for fashion, they are for tough, practical watches which can take a beating.

most emergency service workers use them for this very reason.

so hot n rep from me.

i got myself a g shock a year or so ago, i got through so many watches at work it was silly, they were getting smashed, lost or unsuitable, i wanted a g shock but didnt want to pay loads for it. i managed to find a great shop who were cheaper than most and £5 for special delivery which is normally next day apart from sunday obviously)

they have this http://www.bassett-watch-shop.com/images/G%20011D-8A2.jpg which looks simular to the one on offer, it is 15 quid more though

they have loads of g shock stuff

[COLOR="Navy"]Junghans have been making radio controlled clocks and watches for a number of years. I believe that they developed the first ever radio controlled watch, the Mega 1. It's not very comfortable (I have a couple), as there is a very inflexible antenna built in to the strap!

Their later watches are much nicer - I also have a Mega Solar Ceramic, which is one of my favourite watches - it combines a number of innovative items (ceramic case, hidden buttons, radio controlled, solar powered, analogue and digital displays) all in a single watch. [/COLOR]

I have had this watch for 3 years its been my fave watch ever! and I have had way more expensive ones.
Wear it all the time gets a battering at work still no scratches:thumbsup:
Voted Hot!

Does anyone know if Argos do strap adjustment?

Or

Does anyone know where I can find an online guide to adjust the strap for this model?
