Editorial Reviews:

This Casio Sea analog illuminator watch offers all the convenience and durability of a sports watch, with an adaptable style well suited for a work day. The large round dial is black with white and luminous indexes, two luminous hands, and a red arrow-tipped seconds hand. The black stainless steel bezel offers additional Arabic numeral and dot indexes and a one-way rotation to make timing easy. The bezel's distinctive cog-like edge also gives the watch a stylishly industrial edge. The date displays subtly at four o'clock, and a super illuminator light makes the watch easy to read at any time. The band is made out of rugged black resin with a buckle clasp. This analog quartz powered timepiece is water resistant up to 660 feet (200 meters) and offers a battery life of approximately three years. It is backed by a 1-year limited manufacturer's warranty.

Summary: Excellent Watch
Comment: I have to say that this is a very nice watch. It is well built, has a rugged feel and look to it and just looks cool. For the price you can't go wrong. I actually like the band it comes with and feel that it is comfortable enough. Casio does not offer this watch with a stainless steel band. As the others have stated, the (2) LED lights are the brightest I have ever seen on a watch. Two other nice features are the screw down crown and 200 meter (600 ft) water resistance. The caseback is of course a screw down type also. The watch is built solid and made of stainless steel. I know my watches and for under [...] shipped, this is a great deal.

Summary: Very Nice Watch..! Exceeded my Expectations.
Comment: Wow..! I love this watch..!

I bought it along with a "dressier" Casio Men's Slide Rule Bezel Analog Chronograph Aviator Watch #MTP4500D-1AV and this one is definitely my favorite. Both are great values and serve different purposes, but I find myself wearing the "divers" watch more often (even in more formal situations). Great overall size and "feel" and the styling (with the black rotating dial) is reminiscent of much more expensive timepieces.

Other reviewers have "knocked" the rubber band, but I have no problem with it. I like the way it is molded to fit right up against the dial and I don't think the watch would look as good with an aftermarket band. I have found it to be comfortable and easily adjustable.

The light is brighter than any that I have ever seen on a watch. The only surprise was that it really doesn't help you see the date (due to the way it is recessed).

I would highly recommend this watch..!

Summary: Great watch
Comment: wanted a watch that I can take on trips and just kick around with.......this is perfect. I like it almost as much as my Rolex. I wouldnt hesitate at all to buy this again. The backlight works perfect, numbers are big - only two small draw backs if any - date (very small) and band could be a little more comfortable. Once you get use to it - its not bad at all.

Summary: 5 stars for what it is! READ!
Comment: I have just recieved this watch today. i was pretty excited about it for the last couple days so i had read all 15 reviews for it here on amazon so i kinda knew what to expect.

after inspecting my new watch i must say the quality is very nice, it feels SOLID not cheap, and it looks very classy as well. perhaps overkill for my day job i dont mind.
it does have features of a high end watch thats for sure, the screw in crown and the screw back case is a nice plus. Of course you already know this by now.

the bezel rotates in one direction only, i personally prefer a bi-directional..but its ok. the quality seems good on the racheting action of the bezel. there really isnt any "play" in the gearing of it. its very tight.
The other reviewer was right, its so tight that spinning it with your fingerpads is hard at times...however i do it easilly because i grip it the right way.
very good quality precision like.

the mineral crystal is a beautiful dome, i personally prefer this type of crystal, not only for looks and class, but they tend to hold up even better against shock. its science really just research having a collision with a dome vs a flat ppiece of glass...so dome faces are TOP NOTCH IN MY BOOK

I use the bezel as a stopwatch, and i use it at least 3 times per day. Of course my concern is wearing it out...but i would assume that it is designed to be used a lot.it doesnt feel like its going to wear out, and i have seen cheap watches go years and years...this one should last and last and last...however...i suppose a watch shop could also repair such a simple thing as a rotating bezel anyway.

the luminescent hands and markers seem to hold their glow, once your eyes adjust im sure you will be able to see the time all through the night with these. the blue markers and green hands certainly does stand out. (however, once your eyes adjust and the light of the markers dies down a bit..it will all look green)
but if your still having trouble i must say the 2 LEDs on this watch make seeing the time in any condition an easy task. they are BRIGHT....FLASHLIGHT BRIGHT...im NOT kidding with you.

TH BAND is my big complaint..i will be upgrading it soon to a 22mm silicone band (also on amazon) because the factory band is VERY stiff,..and...in all actuality..it is uncomfortable..it seems durable..but still..it rubs your skin the wrong way (no pun intended)
its also the type of material that cracks over time.i just glanced down and am seeing quite a few red marks on each side of my wrist because of this band. ALSO take note that i put the band on loose not tight to try to avoid this from happening. ....looks like im going to need that new band soon..

THis watch looks beautiful, you would NEVER be able to tell it was 49.99 shipped..
There is a youtube video of a review of this watch, also a video of a guy who modded this watch with a sapphire crystal. I called my local watch shop and they told me it would run about 100 bux, but they would put a sapphire crystal in it.
Believe it or not it might be worth it...this watch is THAT nice.

All in all...its extreme value! im happy with it..

if anything happens to it ill make an update later on as thisis day one.
so far..so great.

UPDATE:11-17-08

this watch is extremely comfortable with this new silicone band..
this watch is worth far more what they are charging for it..

Summary: For the $ a Great Deal!
Comment: I am a collector of high end watches. My watches are shall we say in a different class then this watch. But as I say this I also like to buy watches that I appreciate the way they look. This watch caught my eye as a functional all around watch. It was inexpensive and seems to be a fairly good watch for the money.

I have no regrets buying this one, and if I was asked about an inexpensive good watch, this one would go in my book! If you are looking for a decent looking and a watch that so far, seems to be of quality I would say this is a great deal! The illumination is great too, I didn't know that it had that as a function, and I accidently hit the button and to my surprise it lit up quite a bit. Do yourself a favor and pick up one of these, it is a great deal and looks pretty good too!
