For fans of precision: the countdown timers help you to remember specific or recurring events by giving off an audible signal at a preset time.

Ideal for people who need to take medicines every day or those who do interval training.

OP - you need Edifice in the title, I almost dismissed it as a normal Casio.

Looks good, and some good features too

Casio Edifice Solar Powered Radio Controlled Watch ECW-M300EDB-1AER @ h samuels for £119.99 + Quidco cash back - online & in store was £275

I have this watch and the glass scratches very easy - I have had mine for 8 months and it has about 4 scratches and I don't know where I done them to! Also the solar part is poor - needs bright sunlight to charge up to decent amount. It is a good price I paid about £140 .

Kevin6BZ has confused me whether to buy or not? though i already order which i can return if dont like..

yes confused me to but got 41 5 star reviews out of 55 on amazon. got 1 put away at my local store pick up tomorrow got a voucher of eBay cost me £4.50 but voucher is for £25 of £75 spend got voucher in post today

Since I had a mobile phone - 15 years, I don't bother wearing a watch, not voted

This needs serious heat

This is a serious watch for the money!

My only reluctance is I bought an Edifice before.. and it started going crazy after only a few months, casio looked at it and thought they had fixed ,but i ended up returning it a few weeks later as it was doing it again.. (also the world time was 24h on an analog face which I could never get used too - but this ones digital so looks better)..

Anyone else comment on reliability as I would like another, until it broke it was very good.

@paul.Jacobs true but a nice watch is more than just about telling the time.

went in shop & it worked ok for me

A great watch. My only reservation is I found it a bit of a faff changing between time zones when travelling.

Very nice. Got for £102.00 using a pre-paid gift card. Good price at £102.00 including delivery.

Why did you bother posting in a thread about a watch bargain if you don't wear one? I don't ride a motorbike, so I wouldn't even bother looking at a thread about a bargain motorbike. I certainly wouldn't dream of posting anything like "I've had a car for 15 years, so I don't bother riding a motor bike, Not voted.".

I have three Casio WaveCeptor watches and they are all excellent. Perfect timekeeping (obviously) and they seem fairly robust and scratch-resistant. Tempted to get this one.

Very hot deal. Had a struggle to avoid buying one! (_;)

Bought one and pick mine up tomorrow, thanks op.

I must resist! I don't need another Edifice.... but this is such a good deal.. I hate you hukd

I would spent a little more and get a Citizen eco drive or G-shock..I have 3 of each different models..

many years ago you would have a point but with smart phone batteries barely lasting 12 hours now you don't

Interesting watch, cost more than my moto g though... can't afford

Thanks OP Ordered!. I love high end Casio and the solar + atomic is great. I enjoy wearing these as much as my rolex / omega or tag but I dont worry about them as much!.

For watch wearers it's very little to do with being able to tell the time and more to do with vanity and "look at my shiny watch" to increase self confidence.

Not it isn't. I deliver training and can quickly glance at my watch to see how long to give delegates on exercises, time exams, time breaks, see how far away we are from lunch, etc.

Carrying a phone means I have to
* remember to bring it (and not leave it in my jacket, at home, or in the car) ,
* keep taking it in and out of my pocket, spinning it around/pushing buttons to see the numbers,
* run the risk that someone may call or text me (which can be disruptive - even if set to silent) and
* the phone battery may run out - especially if I forget to switch bluetooth off!

So a watch is a very sensisble solution, and a solar watch (which my current one is) is even better as
a) there is no winding up required (so no risk of breakage of springs and cogs) and
b) no costly battery replacements.

Good watch, good price, voted hot.

Often the same for phone owners too

You need a watch that has synthetic-sapphire , hardest material one can get for watch but the watch from Seiko, Citizen etc.Citizen etc. with sapphire glass is typically £150 upwards.

No it is in stock but now £275! - That is a bit of a leap.

Mine is due to be delivered today allegedly. Not had any communication from H Samuel though except for the email immediately after I paid for it so not entirely confident that it will turn up.

Edit - no sooner I write this, they have emailed saying it has been despatched. So tomorrow looks likely for receipt of it. Still can't really tell why some 'Edifice' watches are twice the price of others?

got 1 from shop & ordered 1 on of the internet got it today wrong watch model efr-526d-1avuef

Ordered online too and wrong model arrived same efr. Are they trying to get rid of unpopular model?

After half an hour on the phone they say they don't have it in stock anymore so just offering a return and refund. Shame it was a nice watch and nice price. Let's see if anyone else got the wrong one sent.

just been in my local h samuels they phoned up & they still have them in a few shops ordered a replacment for me (the last 4 numbers are the same on there order number so obviously they not check properly) still showing in stock online think shops are sending them out

I'll let you know when it gets here. That wrong one they sent is a much cheaper and inferior model. Surely they can't be trying it on?

Received mine today.
They have sent me the correct model.

This whole experience was a bit like buying from Argos. You turn up and get handed a clearly ex-display, grubby item in the wrong or no box with no instructions and yet they were selling it as new. I had to go and exchange mine from an H Samuel in Croydon in the end as the one that arrived in the post was stupidly unpackaged, no protection, white, wrong box, no tin or warranty and 'printed off the internet' on A4 instructions. The watch was just loose in a plastic bag.

Nice watch though (but they still haven't figured out how to make a light that displays the whole face!)
