Time set to 8.20? Unheard of. They’ll not sell any of those as the industry believes we only buy watches set to 10.10!

This version is probably the best value all-rounder. Sapphire and solar plus the metal strap. I bought the version with the leather strap for a tenner less a while back and it is a very good watch for the money.
Thanks, Bought 1

By the way, heat added, great price, but looks too similar to other Edifices I own for me to bite.
Hmmm... thinking about a new watch. Not sure if i want smart watch or classic watch, but i like classic look more. This one seems nice, can anyone recommend anything?
Nice watch, solar and sapphire.

It depends what you mean by 'classic'. Without knowing what sort of watches you like, your budget, what sort of occasions you would be wearing it for etc, it's very difficult to recommend one. If you're looking for an inexpensive watch for everyday use that can be dressed up or down, I'd say go for an aviation style, maybe a Seiko or Citizen eco-drive.
Rotary do some nice aviation style watches, and the beauty of these is they go with almost any dress occasion, with the exception of a strictly smart/dinner type event. Others prefer the dive/submariner styles for everyday watches. 40-42mm is a nice size that you can wear with anything, although I tend to learn towards 42-44mm. I have circa 60 watches in my collection and not one Smart watch, so it's pretty clear where I stand on that topic Nothing wrong with Casio Edifice though, they make good watches. Although be careful of their leather strap watches, they are fairly poor, and ideally need a replacement strap to make the watch look the best it can. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but something to factor into the price. The Edifice above from the OP is quite nice in fairness, and a great price if you like the style.
I'll pop some pics of my favourite inexpensive everyday aviation and dive style watches below to give you some suggestions.

Don't worry, on the real thing, the hands move to show the time as it passes.
My Edifice is coming up to 3 up years old now. Its my everyday watch so its seen a bit of abuse and knocks. I was worried at first about the glass face, being so large etc and the fact that the edge is a high polish silver, but its stood up very well to being bumped. Very slight scratching to the edge but the sapphire glass is excellent.

I hate that there are no video reviews of these. Seems like a perfect Edifice.
Oh there is a review!

Thanks man! That's a really great response. I really like your watches and i think 42 and 43mm look nice. However i kinda like the 46mm as well. Would have to see how it looks on my arm first probably. I'm looking for everyday watch and will definitely look into your recommendation.

Thank you again, you're a hero

You're very kind
What is the quality of Edifices like in general? Have had many cheaper Casios and they’ve all had problems. Digital ones resetting themselves to a date in the distant past; analogue ones where the hands don’t point to where they should etc.

Edifice are very good. They make strong reliable watches. The solar powered ones are especially good in my experience. Time keeping is excellent on mine and the second hand aligns perfectly with the indices, which is also quite important. They're not of the same quality as Citizen Eco-Drive but, they're a fair bit cheaper. The only thing I would say that let's them down is the sub-par straps they use. They're not terrible, but they're not good either, and somehow cheapen the watch a little. It's still a good buy if you get one cheap enough and add your own strap
