wish it had stayed in the 80s total rubbish

Okay it is retro, however it is a good piece of kit. I have owned one for over 2 years now the time surprisingly is always right as it updates itself regularly, it is very waterproof and has good shock resitance. You say it is total rubbish based on what
#4
agree with you ford652 have had mine for 2 years and it is a great functional watch.

Got the round version of this Casio Waveceptor Your text here(comes in handy when driving my train as it now runs on "proper" time!) and it's been great. Comes with 2 year warranty and has a good nightlight button. Mine cost 25.95 at the tome but now is £28.95 with free supersaver delivery

Bought this watch today - many thanks. The lady in Argos adjusted the bracelet for free.

I also bought this watch, its nice and retro, im used to wearing stainless steel automatic chronograph, so this is super light weight to me but feels sturdy. nice clear display easy to use.
also nice that you can change the date format so it reads day month year.
if there is any weak point it is the clasp. but its not any weaker than other watches in the sub £50 price range.

I have one of these watches, it was a great buy and is an excellent piece of kit.

Retro chic ;-)

Just a warning that in Casio-speak water resistant to 50m means it can resist a few splashes. 100m is swimming and in the bath, and 200m is scuba diving. All of their stainless steel watches seem to be only 50m.

A bit like loughboro guy's "lady friend" although she is more retro than chic! Has she got her free bus pass yet?

I have the cheaper plastic one as existing watch died and I was in a hurry and wanted the dual time feature.
Works well, but I have to put the watch in the right place in the bedroom to get signal to sync time - but then room is on east side of house with no windows towards the NPL

Great watch, had mine 2 years without any problems and worn daily, a bargain at this price. The steel strap is a must have IMO!

I've got the G-Shock version of the wave-ceptor and it's a great watch, but the radio control time feature does have its drawbacks. The watch doesn't auto switch between time zones and the time signal can be very weak. The latter really depends on where you live.

When I bought the watch I just assumed it would switch automatically between time zones, although it can pick up a time signal in other countries it doesn't switch to local time automatically. I thought this was an oversight on Casio's part, but if you think about the vast areas covered by these radio signals, it would be technically impossible for Casio to work out the current time zone.

One more thing to be aware of is the time signals can be very weak. To get a daily time sync I have to leave the watch on an upstairs window sill and it has to remain still for about an hour between 1am and 2am. Leaving it on a downstairs windows sill just doesn't work at all.This all happens very late at night, so it's just a case of taking it off and leaving it there each night. I've still never managed to get a time sync whilst travelling abroad though.

You need to wear the watch to get the best sync. Your body acts as an aerial. By default it auto-syncs at 1am or 2am depending on the whether its summer time or not.

Mine has never adjusted to the time signal, even went within 10 miles of Rugby and the poxy thing still did not work!
#17
Mine messed up the time i ended up in 1982 in a delorium dmc.

Some replies to the posts here:

biffer: Without a GPS in the watch, I don't think you could get a watch to auto-switch time-zone (is the time zone actually transmitted by the radio signal? Possibly not...). Time syncing is indeed a bit hit and miss, but you must be still during the syncing period (you do it manually by holding down the bottom right button for about 5 seconds), which is why it's overnight when most people will have taken their watches off.

leather: You do know that Rugby stopped radio time signals in April 2007? They're now handled by a transmitter in Althorn, Cumbria.

To everyone else: I don't like square LCD watches myself - if you want circular casing, I'd suggest the cheaper one I've got (hmmm...this showed at 12 quid off when I first loaded, now it doesn't!), though I'm counting the days until the resin strap breaks...sigh. Mind you, I've bought a second one when it was on offer at 20 quid just in case :)
