Digital watches and clocks have a digital display. That is what makes them digital watches and clocks. Whether they record time in a digital or analogue fashion is irrelevant. A digital display will not point out the current time on a display of all times possible, as it does in an analogue watch, but it will only show the digits of one time. Nowadays this usually happens via LED or LCD display, but that has not always been the case. Digital watches have been around long before the electronic display was invented. They used turning disks or cylinders behind a mask that would only show one digit at a time. Or airport-style flip-card mechanics were used.

Radiocontrol
Radio controlled watches and clocks are timepieces that are able to receive a radio transmitted time signal and set themselves to it. They are what you and me can use to benefit from these incredibly exact atomic clocks out there. There are many different time signals, most countries have their own, so lets get technical: There is the MSF signal, also known as “Rugby Clock”, which broadcasts at a frequency of 60 kHz from the Anthorn radio station in Cumbria at a signal strength of 17 kW. The effective range is approx. 1000 km, so it will be received throughout the UK and western Europe. There are three atomic clocks on site, operated by the National Physical Laboratory. The information in the signal includes the UTC (former GMT) year, month, day of month, day of week, hour, minute, British Summer Time. The other commonly used radio time signal broadcast in Europe is the DCF77. This is broadcast from Mainflingen, near Frankfurt/Germany. So it is placed pretty centrally in Europe. It is transmitted at 77.5 kHz with a relatively high power of 50 kW, which means it has an effective range of 2000+ km. The signal contains pretty much the same information that the UK MSF signal does, but in UTC+1 (or CET). It is widely used in Europe because of its strength and centrally located broadcasting station. It is also quite popular in the UK, as almost all radio controlled watches can be set to a different time zone. This means they will still receive the DCF77 signal, but then add or subtract the amount of hours according to which time zone they have been set to.
There are multi-frequency watches available. These watches will be able to receive different time signals on different frequencies. Apart from the UK’s MSF and the European DCF77, the most common ones are the US WWVB (60 kHz) and the Japanese JJY (40 kHz and 60 kHz).
It is very important to know that the radio signal and the reception thereof is subject to various conditions. Apart from the fact that the signal does not mix that well with thick concrete and steel buildings, the time of day and the weather play a huge role. Rain will lower the range, but the signal will bounce off clouds, amplifying it a bit. The signal can travel further at nights and even the time of year and the position of the moon can have a slight impact. It has happened, that radio controlled clocks in eastern Canada set themselves regularly to the German DFC77 signal. It can also happen that you will have problems receiving the signal in the middle of England. Most commonly it is a too weak battery, but you could live in a valley or behind a mountain or just a massive building. If you are having problems receiving a radio signal, place it on the windowsill over night, preferably in the direction of the broadcasting station which signal you are trying to receive. If this does not work, turning the watch by 45° might do the trick. Sounds like a lot of witchcraft? Well, radio controlled watches are a lot more technical and tricky than normal ones. A perfect every-day reception is by no way guaranteed by the manufacturers. And it is not really required as the watches only use the signal to set their highly accurate quartz movements. Unless you calculate time in milliseconds, a couple of days without a signal will pass unnoticed.

Waterproof
Water tightness or impermeability, surprisingly enough, is the degree to which you can expose your watch to the element water. A watch can be water repellent to a variety of degrees, from surviving the odd splash, to keeping the watch fully functioning long after your crushed body has hit the ocean floor. Please note that these are always theoretical values. Water behaves very differently at different temperatures and with varying salinity. So we took our crayons and made you this rough guide (which, by the way, is in no way legally binding and we will not be held accountable for your watch if you ruin it):

Waterproof

FYI: 10m is 1 bar is (roughly) 33 ft is (exactly) 0.986923267 atm

Seit nunmehr 13 Jahren trage ich ausschließlich Uhren von Casio.
Vor mehreren Jahren erwarb ich dieses Modell und bin nach wie vor höchst zufrieden.
Besonders angenehm ist es, dass ich mich nie wieder über eine falsche Uhrzeit ärgern muss. Dass ich die Uhr auch im Schwimmbad nicht abnehmen muss, erklärt sich bei Casio selbstredend. Die erste Batterie hielt sage und schreibe 7 Jahre lang, bevor sie ersetzt werden musste.
Würde ich mir eine neue Uhr zulegen wollen, so wäre dieses Modell auf jeden Fall wieder ein Favorit.

Die Uhrzeit tut was sie soll und ich bin recht zufrieden damit. Zu einem Punkt Abzug führt lediglich die relativ kleine Schrift für Datum und Sonderfunktionen. Auch das kürzen des Armbands gestaltet sich für den Laien relativ schwierig, ist dank Youtube aber machbar. Alles in allem aber trotzdem eine gute und funktionale Uhr, die meinen Erwartungen entspricht.

Eine schön anzusehende Praktische Uhr ,etwas hoch aber man gewöhnt sich daran.Armband musste gekürzt werden,exta Kosten entstanden.Funktionen für Casio Benutzer relativ einfach zu verstehen.Ansonsten eine prima alltagstaugliche Uhr!

Lieferung erfolgte ohne Probleme. Leider passte die Länge des Armbandes nicht, so dass ein Besuch beim Uhrmacher notwendig war.
