    Dear Mike,

    Your foto is as awesome as your beautiful watch.

    I also paid for my white colour Casi Multi Band-6 Tough Solar today and expecting from China within a week or so. I will post some fotos as well.

    Do these atomic signal receivers work here in B.C., Canada? I guess we can receive the time signals from U.S.A.? What is the range of atomic time signals?

    Enjoy your beautiful watch in good health, best regards . . .

    Re: My First G-Shock

    I have a WaveCeptor model (not a G-Shock, though) that works fine here in Surrey. It doesn't usually work when the watch is in my dresser. But it works fine if i put it near the window or take it outside. I usually make sure I let it sync once a week or so. If you are in North Vancouver you are facing toward the radio signal and it should work fine, especially if you are up the hill a little ways.

    The G-Shock pictured in this thread doesn't have a receiver for the atomic clock.

    Dear Mike,

    Thank you very much for the valuable info. Does the watch synch automatically or do you have to do it manually? How do you know it is being synched? Is there any indicator or indication? How long does the sycnhro take? How often does the watch synchro itself if it is done automatically? Yes, I guess once a week is very good enough.

    Dear Tribe,

    Thank you very much for the valuable info. I will keep this chart on my desktop so I will know where I can get the signals.

    Very Best Regards . . .

    Congrats on the watch, Serdal! Looking forward to those pictures.

    You shouldn't have any problems receiving the signals from where you are located. Keep in mind that the signals are best received if you leave the watch be a window or open area where the radio waves are not easily obstructed.

    Keep in mind that the signal is also strongest over night (I believe it goes out at 2 AM).

    Good luck, and enjoy the watch!

    I'm not Mike, but waveceptor watches sync automatically if you have 'auto sync' enabled. You can also sync manually. Symbols on the display will tell you when a sync is in progress and when it has been satisfactorily completed. It usually takes 2-4 minutes. Auto sync happens daily. Most models sync at 1am, and then try again at 2am, 3am, etc. if not successful the first time.

    See here for Casio's description of the technology, or Google for more.

    Dear Ben,

    Thank you very much for your very kind words. Yes, the first thing I will do is to post lots of fotos. This is my first solar watch, first G-Shock, and first Atomic synchro watch. Without you, this couldn't have happened.

    Very Best Regards . . .
