    Picture Coolest atomic solar- opinions please

    What do folks like best for solar powered atomic clock watches. I used to own a nifty G-shock, black and red face, steel case and bracelet, I really liked. Oceanus has some cool ones too:

    Some clocks and watches receive radio frequencies from cesium atomic clocks owned by government or academic institutions throughout the world, and automatically set themselves to the correct time on a regular bases in this fashion.

    The atomic clock's purpose is to give THE time. It's the absolute timepiece, but still a little too big for the wrist. The atomic watches that get set by radio signal from it are pretty damned accurate as well

    Although I've noticed that it doesn't keep the same time as my vostok amphibia so it's not THAT precise

    I like the Oceanus a lot, but I'd also like to know if there's any other similar good ones. I think the Citizen Skyhawk AT gajin mentioned is a bit too crammed on the dial, not very easy on the eyes IMO.

    I'm not so sure. The atomic/solar g-shocks don't seem to be much bigger than some of the automatic/dive watches which seem to be all the rage right now.
