So Far So Good, But....,

This review is from: Casio Men's WV58A-1AV Waveceptor Atomic Digital Watch (Watch)This watch has the features, weight/feel that I wanted for work. (HEMS)
The "atomic time" feature coincides exactly with our helicopter's Garmin 530 radios. The backlight lasts long enough after pressing to write down and view my times without repeating over and over again. The only reason I gave a 3/5 is the watch arrived without instructions. None.
I do not know if that was a Seller issue (Chelsea) or Manufacturer. (Casio) I have enough gadgetology experience that I could eventually figure it out. I prefer instructions and if I cannot find any on-line, it may take a while. (Syncing the radio signal, changing from Central Time to Pacific, changing the 12 hr format to 24 hr, etc.) Overall, this is exactly what I have been looking for.
Addendum: Go to Casio's website. Enter in the 4 (or 3) digit number from the back of your watch and it has a library of all the relevant instructions manuals in pDF format. Which, come to think of it, is a little... Read more

It is fairly large, but not "in your face" large.
It's comfortable and easy to read and use.
This is my third "atomic clock." I bought it because I've been impressed with the technology. My other clocks are a wall model and a bedside alarm clock. Both synchronize easier than the watch. BUT, I expected that. The clocks are fairly large compared to the watch. Accordingly, the watch has more trouble receiving a synchronizing signal - it's antenna simply is not very large. (The signal is a very low frequency one from Colorado (if you're in the U.S.). Proper receiving antennae for these frequencies are typically hundreds of feet in length.) Place the watch next to a window, with the top of the watch parallel to and pointed out the window... Read more

This review is from: Casio Men's WV58A-1AV Waveceptor Atomic Digital Watch (Watch)Please Note - When I first posted this review it was correctly associated with the resin model, but sometimes it appears to be associated with the stainless steel version. Regardless of the picture associated with this item, I am reviewing the resin model, which is functionally the same as the one with the stainless steel case.
Update - I have now had this watch one year and it continues to operate flawlessly, as described below.
This is the least fancy and has the fewest functions of this variety of Casio watch. Thus, it is also the least expensive variant. This watch is very accurate, not too bulky and is inexpensive. A five-star watch for me, but it might not be for you if the concerns mentioned below are a problem for you, particularly with regard atomic time reception at your location.
There are many different variants of the Casio "atomic" watch to choose from, so I will discuss some of the watch properties and why I chose this one. Then I... Read more
