    Atomic Watches

    Are there any G-Shocks that are atomic, but not solar? Thanks.

    Yeah, I thought that looked nice too...would be a good dress watch.

    These Casio models are more expensive but you get what you pay for...the movts are better quality Japanese, and probably up there with the Giez in that respect.

    Here's the model I got dad (which is solar)...


    It looks much nicer in real life methinks. Same movt as the Giez 5 motor GS-1000. It was only losing 2-3 sec/month when not syncing. He was saying he saw a really expensive Raymond Weil in the paper this morning, and thought it looked similar to the Casio minus all the features the Casio has.

    I guess we've come to expect few features in big buck Swiss watches, and loads of features in inexpensive Casios. What's in a name?
