    Caution! E-Bay listing that I think is inaccurate!

    If you're shopping for an atomic solar G-Shock on ebay, be careful. There's one model listed new for under $50, and in the listing it says it is atomic solar, but I don't think it is. It is a DW9052-1V. I ordered one, did a bit of looking around, and couldn't find any other source that referred to it as being either solar OR atomic, so I contacted the seller to cancel the order. Fortunately, he cancelled it before shipping and refunded my payment in full. If I hadn't started looking for more info about it, I would likely have been shipping it back.

    So, was I wrong, and did I pass up a great deal, or is this model NOT atomic solar?

    Yeah, a DW9052 is neither atomic or solar.
    It's a nice classic module and a cool watch, but if you want atomic and/or solar charging keep looking :)

    Happens more. I think the seller copied standard Casio information about G-Shocks, as they are often promoted as solar watches, while of course not all are.

    What I find most interesting is that, last I checked, the seller hadn't changed anything! They may have by now, but at least for a while they left up misleading information.
