Had this watch. Although a great deal, it was a bit crap. The first links in the strap are plastic and the silver wears off. HOT for the deal though.
Just FYI, here's the Casio Wave Ceptor I have now: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Casio-wave-ceptor-stainless-steel-mens-watch-/300474843431?pt=UK_Jewellery_Watches_Pocket_Watches_Accessories_ET&hash=item45f5b24127#ht_1218wt_907

None of the links are plastic though? They're all stainless steel. Do you mean the surround of the watch, that has some plastic to it?

£50 for a Casio ? No thanks.

Can't quite remember, was a couple of years ago when I had it. It may have been parts of the surround, yes. It might not even be plastic, just the colour faded from the metal, can't quite remember!

I've got one of these, bagged a bargain from Costco about 5 years ago. The watch itself is great, solar powered and radio controlled so you know it's always the right time. Solar power meter has 3 readings - Hi, Med & Lo. It's never gone below Hi for me since I've had it.

The strap is another matter tho'. The main part of the strap is a decent quality steel construction, it'll need taking to a shop to get it adjusted for your wrist unless you have, or know someone, with the knowhow to do it for you. But the section that links the stap to the body of the watch is basiaclly a silver painted plastic which started to wear off after a few months. Not much you can do about it.

The world time option can vary from model to model, iirc. Some only cover certain regions, so it might be worth checking if areas you intend to travel to will be covered by this model if that's an issue for you.

I bought mine for £33+vat 5 years ago, I wear it all the time, just wish it had stayed looking smarter for longer.

The strap is steel, the watch body is metal too - it's just the section that connects each end of the strap to the watch body that's not metal. Unless they've changed the design, of course.

Would be a nice watch, if they hadn't cheated by using plastic instead of stainless steel for parts of it. Great shame - some Amazon reviews:


"I was very impressed with the time keeping but very dismayed when after just a couple of months the "silver" casing wore to reveal a grey plastic. Now looks cheap."

"Good watch for timekeeping but the finish on the shoulders of the watch wears thin to reveal a grubby grey resin. Don't waste your money. My wife has just bought me a second Casio watch (thinking that mine was looking grubby and worn) only to discover that it will have the same problem. Sadly I'm returning it. This level of quality is wholly unacceptable."

"Only downside I've discovered is just above and below this watch face where the bracelet joins watch body is for about 2 cm Plastic finished made to look stainless steel
Over the course of a year or so this finish wears to reveal non-metallic grey plastic. This can make the watch look like it is dirty, where it has simply got a worn out paint finish."

I'm wearing one.
No plastic. All SS.
Unlike most casio's it falls down on usability as the controlls are totally counter intuative.
Its OK if you just want to know the time but I simply don't/can't use any of the other functions.

I take your point about the counterintuitivity of the controls! You will find, though, that some of what seems to be metal is in fact plastic, hence the bad reviews, and this:

Casing: Stainless Steel & Resin

Undeniably a bargain and should be hot - way cheaper than anywhere else, however it's a shame that Casio spoil good watches by using cheapo plastic in the cases. I much prefer the older all metal waveceptors and probably wouldn't buy a plastic one.
