Like it! Thanks.

Ive had one for a few years with no problems. it doesnt always manage to pick up a signal for me though (I live in devon - maybe not a good signal here) so I switched the auto daily receive off and sync it up manually every couple of weeks when I am in a high place. This probably saves my battery life anyway.

Nice watch.....Voted Hot........does it have a light?

I bough the Sekonda Tachometer for the same price, about 2 weeks ago. The watch looks great, but there's no light and all the dials and writing make it almost impossible to actually read. :x

what exactly waveceptor do??

receives a radio signal from an atomic clock (most accurate form of time keeping), either the one in Rugby or somewhere in Germany I think. So in theory as long as you are in a valid signal area your watch will never be wrong. Great for when staff turn up late and purpose that their watch is more accurate ;-).

Cheapest price elsewhere appears to be £49.99 so might get myself another one.

The watch picks up the automatic time signal from Rugby, so its always the correct time. There is also time transmitters in France and Germany for European time, not sure if this Waveceptor will pick these up.

These are awesome! Spooky when it first picks up a signal or when you go abroad and the hands spin round really fast and then stop on the correct time!
#10
These are excellent watches.

Got one from amazon for my dad the last time they were going cheap and, I liked it so much, that I got another one for myself.

The blue face makes it easy to read the time in bad light.

Just being pedantic - it's Cumbria not Rugby now:

The time signal broadcast from Rugby stopped on 1st April 2007 (no joke), The automatic time signal are broadcast from Anthorn, Cumbria now :- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_from_NPL

I've had the same Wave Ceptor watch for more than 4 years, and it has the original battery in. It is quite simply brilliant. I have an Omega Speedmaster auto in a draw which rarely gets worn because of the Casio.

I will be looking out for another one to replace my Wave Ceptor, however I don't like the look of this one. Still a good deal though if it is to your taste.

Actually, Amazon are doing a basic Wave Ceptor watch for £23.20 delivered still not to my taste but cheap all the same:

I have this model (albeit with the black resin strap instead of the blue one) and love it to death. Full LCD watches tend to give you several more functions than either analogue or mixed analogue/digital ones and I personally prefer them.

The only weaknesses of Casio LCD watches are the resin strap models (which seem to be more common than the metal strap models), which inevitably have their strap break before the battery runs out. It's that reason (and the fact that the solar version of the Wave Ceptors are triple the price of the non-solar models for no good reason) that you're probably better off with the cheapest Wave Ceptor you can find.

Once you've got a radio-controlled watch, you'll never want a non-radio-controlled one again - not only don't you have to constantly adjust the timekeeping (Casio LCDs tend to drift up to a second a day), but the timezone change is handled for you automatically too.

Cracking deal, I've had a Wave Ceptor divers (not the model on offer) for around a year now and use it every day. It's easy to read, 100% accurate and pretty robust. Wouldn't buy anything else now. They can be difficult to set-up initially but if I remember correctly, after I'd left overnight to receive a signal it was a doddle to set it up as per instructions.
#16
Nice One... Ordered myself 1 as my Waveceptot got stolen 3 months ago and been waiting for a decent 1 to replace it with..
#17
I'm in Aberdeen and no problem here.

Yes, problems with the ergonomics, there is often a reason some products are sold off cheap and others aren't. Still good at this price.

Hmmmm... so looking at the post that says problem with signal in Devon - does this mean you have to be close to the signal for it to work?


I'm in somerset and my G Shock Waveceptor picks up the signal fine, i wouldnt have thought an extra 30 miles south in Devon would make much difference.
#21
does anyone know if they make a more formal waveceptor ? I am after one that I can wear with a suit etc

thanks

Yes, but they are far more popular and consequently far more expensive:

There is a whole range of Wave Ceptor, do a search on Amazon and you should get 3 pages or so. Some other watch makers, like Citizen and Timex are doing radio controlled too.

As for reception in Devon, stick the watch in a north facing window overnight to get best signal. This is in the instruction book, auto radio sync normally happens at 1 or 2AM.
