    AE1000W-1AVCF World Time Unpacking

    I've had my eye on this ultra-affordable with cool features for some time now, but couldn't quite warm up to the black-silver US version. I discovered this all-black international (everywhere except US, it seems) variant just the other day and pulled the trigger. Even at nearly double the price of the regular version this stealth version can still be considered a bargain.

    Unboxing happened late last night and looked like this:

    Found this nestled in my mailbox. Had to tear into it on the spot.

    A flatter than usual Casio box

    No wasted space

    Watch mounted on the nifty Casio stand

    A full-size watch

    Delivered in World Time mode with the calendar set for 2010, probably its release year.

    That SEARCH (D) button, in Timekeeping mode will cycle through T2, T3, T4 city times of your choosing.

    World Map is highlighted with the time zone of the currently chosen city. Digital analog face display only shows the T1, Home City time in hours, minutes and seconds.

    The LED side-lighting has a pleasing color and can be adjusted for either a 1 or 3-second duration

    Another cool feature is the 24hr. timer that can be set to the nearest second.

    Here's what Casio has to say about it. A click on Manual PDF in blue will present the watch in detail:

    It's just not perfect because it doesn't say "G-Shock" on the case .
    The black one is MUCH nicer then the gray version.

    Congrats! I have the same version. IMO the nicest one of the bunch. Changed the plastic buckle to a steel one however.
    Have fun!

    Cheers, Sedi

    Re: AE1000W-1AVCF World Time Unpacking

    Thank you guys.

    Let's go through the modes


    Mode Press 1: World Time, here set on UTC. Displayed city can be changed in one, eastward direction by pressing (and holding for continuos action) SEARCH (D) button.

    Mode Press 2: Alarms, here showing time signal turned on and set on an hourly interval. SIG above the map confirms ON. Each push of SEARCH (D) takes you to Alarms 1-5 and back to time signal. ALM above the map indicates that at least one alarm is ON.

    Mode Press 3: Countdown Timer, here set on 24hrs. and not running. Ability to set the timer to countdown less than a minute is not too common a feature in Casios. Seems like it's more prevalent in the inexpensive models.

    Mode Press 4: Stopwatch measures elapsed time, split time and two finishes. Haven't really checked this one out yet.

    Mode Press 5: Back to Timekeeping

    Light Press. At 15, 30, 45 and 00 minutes digital analog minute hand display nearly disappears. Another thing hampering good visibility is the too-thick divider frame on the face casting long shadows, obscuring display data. This effect is intentionally minimized in these shots.
