    Holiday Watch **Updated: Here And Pictures Added**

    Off on our hols soon, which seemed like reason enough to buy a new watch. One of these is on the way, along with a couple of Zulu straps.

    Seems to be the perfect holiday watch. Smart enough to look nice, cheap enough to be a beater, good water resistance, a chrono and a rotating bezel for timing things, quartz so no issues with magnetising and solar powered so it'll aways be ready to rock.

    Hopefully it'll get here before I am off...

    I love these, I was tempted by the Pepsi red and blue, still on my list. I'm guessing the solar gear is similar to the Eco-Drive unit?
    I think it's a great 'go to' watch, does everything most people ever want from a watch and still looks balanced and simple on the dial. Congrats.

    Maybe, a little... ;o)

    I think this is better suited to my needs though, if only because it'll just keep ticking away with its solar power - well, that's my excuse anyway!

    Thanks - yes, it works much like the EcoDrives and the ToughSolar GShocks...

    Good choice!

    The only thing you have to bear in mind is that once you get it you might need to perform an all reset as indicated on the manual (crown out to the second stop and push both buttons for more than 3 secs). I have seen more than one of these including mine that act funny initially. These watches probably suffer the trip from Japan ...

    Thanks for that. What does that actually reset? The timekeeping, hand alignment....?

    Re: Holiday Watch

    When I took mine out of the box it seemed dead, I thought it was in a sleeping mode but this watch does not have one. I put it outside in the sunshine for half an hour, nothing. Then I read the manual throughly, performed the all reset and the watch started and has not stopped since.
    I believe I read here that it happened to somebody else and surely my nephew's one did the same. I assume the watches were subjected to a high magnetic field during the shipping.

    The reset is needed only in case of a malfunction, the zero position of the hands (only the chrono actually) is a different operation.
