Cheapest I've seen this watch. Really good casual watch for those occasions when you don't need anything special to make a statement or if you want something that you don't mind getting dirty or taking less care of. Solar powered so you'll never need batteries. Great reviews on Amazon of this watch. 100m waterproof, illuminator for the digital display, glow in the dark hands also. Since it's waterproof and the strap is not leather you can go swimming with this so would be ideal for swimmers also without the worry of the band getting all soggy and soft on them like a leather band would. From reading the reviews it's apparently a tough watch so could also be ideal for people who work in construction/manual labour jobs. Will add more pictures.

EDIT: Think there's a 20% off code going around too if you subscribe to their fashion newsletter? I don't know. Someone correct me if I'm wrong or point people in the right direction please.

EDIT: HUKD member vally77 confirmed the fashion newsletter discount code works and it brings the price of the watch after the 20% discount to £16.63

Brilliant! Good for kids too then. I should add that to the description too. Anyway I think you'll find most ana-digital watches look like this. They're going for their more well known G-Shock appearance and for £20 or so it's not a bad substitute considering the technology in this watch. I understand it might not be for all occasions but for a casual watch it is not bad. Not bad at all.

It's a nice watch - bought one of these a few months back for a bit higher price. Good looking and really light, and its solar powered so its good for the price. The only problem is the digital display is a bit small and sometimes the hands cover it. Still worth it though.

how about the light function? just normal LED or something like Illuminator?

Thanks ordered.

From the reviews and product description I think it's the digital display that is only illuminated. So it's nothing like say Timex Indiglo or the face dial illuminator from their G-Shock watches.

(Voted HOT)

Write g shock on it and you are sorted.

cheap looking hence the price, true story

Solar powered - in the UK! - I think the waterproof spec should be the sales clincher ;-)

I saw what you did there lol

How heavy is this? I am only 4 foot 3. I'm not sure this will fit around … How heavy is this? I am only 4 foot 3. I'm not sure this will fit around my waist?I hear the light feature actually makes it heavier as it is made from led.

I work nights will this be OK?

Doesn't need much light to charge and power the watch so should be fine.

Thanks andy.

Hmm maybe not. It's a dark face and only the digital display is illuminated. The display seems small to me so maybe it's not the best in the dark but it does also have glow in the dark hands and numbers so that might make things a little more visible.

Notice it says 'TOUGH SOLAR' so must be a little tough and durable

And to add a bit of comedy to this deal here's a funny review of the watch from Amazon...

y ashley alford - See all my reviews
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Casio Men's Solar Collection Watch AQ-S800W-1B2VEF (Watch)
so i was walking home one day and some 'chavs' decided to rob me they took my old watch(rolex) so i just ordered this than planned my revenge they rang me up this was the conversation
chavvs:2000 for your watch back
me:i dont know who you are but i will find you and i will kill you
END CALL
so after months of planning i forced the leaders head under water thankfully the watch is water proof so i didnt worry then i realise the others where watching so i imediatly screamed SOLAR POWER and charge them that watch has survived fine i would recomend it

Thanks for confirming this vally77.

It's sets up automatic out of the box ??

Do you press adjust ? Can date show in digital display ?

how do you obtain the 20% code?

People on here complaining and speaking nonsense. It's a casio, its £20 - its a good deal. If it were powered by the tears of small children and angels it would still be a deal at this price.

Know this negetive posting cretinous trolls, if you have 0 deals posted and come on here just to make stupid comments, i will make evevy effort to lampoon you with wit and drag you into the light. (that or get andy to delete your comments by whinging like a little child till he is bored)

Thanks OP, have ordered one for on holiday, perfect for going in the pool etc.

I normally spend £5 every year buying a cheap one to wear and it breaks, so should work out better anyway!

How to subscribe ???????????

I signed up to email and didn't get the code, according to Amazon I have already had it which is nonsense.

EDIT: Seems they sent me the code anyway lol, voted hot!

There is a date feature on the digital display. The analogue hands adjust automatically when you set the time on the digital display.

do they do a solar powered watch that's radio Wave Ceptor ?
