Great Solar analogue watch
A very light, functional watch. With a massive array of features - solar powered, perpetual calendar, light, 100m water resistance, stop watch, countdown time, world time..... the engine in this impressive watch is essentially the same as that found in it's G-Shock Gravity Defier series minus all the triple-G protection and glass front (the S800W comes with a perspex screen). At 1/6th (or less) of the price of the G-Shock, I figured I'd have to lose a few or survive a some drops off a ten storey building, and still be in front! On top of that, ...the light is a feature many solar G-Shocks don't have. The backing plate says movement made in Japan, unit assembled in China. Interesting world time switch functions (when you change its locality, the watch hand sweeps around to the local time - fun to watch) Gripes: the LCD window is very small, and for my failing eyesight, a real pain. The light only lights up the LCD screen, so unles you have in "time keep" mode, you can't see the time in the dark - although the luminous hands did stay useable for 6+ hours. Pricing, weight, massive features - particularly the world time Small LCD screen, light only to LCD screen
