Big, Black,& Very ToughJun 06, 2006
I really like mine and would highly recommend it. Many of my buddies had G-Shock watches when I was deployed to Iraq and I decided to get one when I got home. I wanted a watch that could stand up to whatever I put it through. This piece it big, black, heavy, tough, and looks good on my wrist. On top of that, it has atomic accuracy (I don't think this feature works overseas), and is solar powered. The band is metal. The face and back of the watch is also metal. There are a few plastic parts on the case, but you can't tell by looking. It's all black. The light button and ring around the face are shiny compared to the rest of the watch. This is a subtle accent. The watch and band have a slight gloss. I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars because it doesn't have a countdown timer and the alarm needs to be a lot louder.

Synchs in EcuadorFeb 11, 2007
By Glenn Morales
Currently I a living in the middle of the city of Ambato, Ecuador. I doubted if the atomic time feature would work so way down south. However, I put the watch on my night table overnight, close to a window. It synchronizes with WWVB (Fort Collins) with no problems. WWVB is over 5300 km (3300 miles)from here! I don't know what kind of antenna they put in these gadgets, but I am impressed.

Top notchAug 21, 2006
By Tony Michaelson
I had my first Casio back in 1981, when they were manufacture in Japan, ever since I have been fascinated with the digital watches especially being from a generation that saw the development of the digital watches from the old LED watch to the newer LCD.
I've been meaning to buy a new Casio for a while but I was looking for one Atomic, Solar, world time, mineral crystal and with metal band, not so easy to find, until I saw the MTG910DA-1V it has everything I was looking for and much. The watch is big but not uncomfortably heavy once you have it on you forget that you are wearing it (and I have a small wrist). One of the thing that concern me about the watch was Atomic synchronization being that I live in Miami, Florida which is far from the antenna in Colorado but so far it has failed the synchronization only once in a month. Something you should know about this watch is that, because it has a very small antenna, synchronization for those who lived on far places, within the rage of the signal, is only possible at night. The watch has to be position in front of a window with the 12 o clock facing the window and if synchronization is not achieved tried different windows around the house, even if the watch is in a window that has worked in the past it may still failed if you have bad weather conditions. Not to worry if the watch fails the synchronizing, it is much more accurate than a pricy Rolex anyway.
I would definitely recommend this watch it is a must have for a watch collector as well as a regular every day user.

Love this watchDec 24, 2006
By Patrick Carroll

Want a one-word description? "Indestructible" comes to mind.
I bought this after reading all the reviews. Here are my thoughts:
A number of reviews comment on difficulties with sizing the strap. I didn't find it all that difficult. Mind you, I do happen to have a well-lit workbench, and a number of extra-small jeweller's screwdrivers. So, I can understand the complaints, but I had no problems.
There's been a bit of commentary on the size of the watch. Maybe I have gorilla arms, but it didn't seem all that big to me. Definitely thicker than the Timex "Ironman" it replaces, but not excessively so.
So, all in all, an indestructible watch, not oversized, and easy to fit to my wrist.
The real downside to the watch is the instruction manual: it's too small to read, so it makes learning the watch unnecessarily difficult.
I own a small number of items that are just beautiful and well-executed: my Benchmade axis-lock knife, my Ford Explorer, my MAG-LITE torch, etc. This watch just joined the list.
UPDATE (12/18/2007): I was in Beijing last week. While standing in the middle of Tiananmen Square the watch lit up, synchronizing on some time signal or other. How cool is that?!?!!!
UPDATE (08/08/2008): I've noticed that the paint is wearing off the clasp. The watch works just perfectly.
UPDATE (11/04/2009): Spring forward/Fall Back happened automatically, while I was sleeping. The paint has worn a bit more off the clasp. The watch continues to work just perfectly. Love this hunka hunka burnin' watch.
UPDATE (12/30/2009): I've decided to get a new watch. Amazon had Invicta dive watches for under $90. Realizing I was using a *tiny* amount of the Canon watch's capability, and squinting into the bargain, I bought an Invicta dive watch that's about two inches across, and has huge luminous numbers. It works for me. Not to take anything from the Casio, it's constantly recharged, and I use it to set times on my other watches. Still, ultimately it had more than I was looking for, or could use, and its manual was a hassle, so it now serves as "chief astronomer," or some such.

Outstanding valueFeb 25, 2007
UPDATED November 26, 2007
After wearing it for a few months, I'm still pleased with my purchase. As a couple of other reviews pointed out, the band will become scuffed over time. I work on a computer all day, and the part of the band that comes in contact with my desk has had the black coating worn off. Not too badly, though. If you're the type that likes that "worn in" look, you won't be bothered by it. If you like your watch to look perfect, then beware that the black coating will wear off if you have the band in constant contact with another surface, like a desk.
The atomic timesetting feature continues to work well. I've traveled to New York City and had the watch sync up perfectly in my hotel room in Midtown.
This watch is probably the most comfortable watch I've ever worn. The bracelet fits perfectly (doesn't pinch or pull hair), it's rugged, and the heft and balance of the watch feels good.
The only feature that I wish it had is a countdown timer. But, I get around that by setting one of the alarms to the time I need to measure to.
I'm really pleased with the quality of this watch. It's a big watch, but comfortable to wear, even on my relatively small wrist. The bracelet and case are top quality. I've had no problems getting it to sync up with the radio signal from the atomic clock. And I don't necessarily have to set it in the window for it to receive the signal.
