I love collecting watches but not those high end mechanical watches. May be someday I will own one of them. Presently most of my watches are mid-range quartz watches. This one is my 3rd in edifice series and arguably the best one. It’s been close to 2 months since I have purchased it. I have fascination for solar powered watches and that’s what primarily drew me to this piece in the first place.

The built quality of the watch is superb. Stainless steel case, resin strap, screw back crown and screw back back-cover are all good things to keep a watch going on for a long time. The only hitch I personally found is the screw back crown. Yes a lot of high end and divers watches have this feature and it increases water tolerance. But come on Casio, this is only 100m water resistant. Every time you need to make any adjustment you need to unscrew and this can become a pain after certain period of time. Fortunately it is solar powered and has a perpetual calendar. Once set you do not need to bother again for a lifetime. If someone is travelling a lot across different time zones then it may be a different matter. I wish there was a sapphire glass crystal. Also the dial overall appears dull compared some other edifice watches. It cannot be due the solar nature, because some of citizens I own are not dull like this.

This watch has date, day, dual time zone, alarm, chronograph, stopwatch with facility for 10 laps and fastest lap, countdown timer and world time; phew a long list of features. The watch fits perfectly on my 6.8” wrist. The resin strap is extremely comfortable but generates a lot of sweat in hot Indian summers. The dial looks a bit busy but easy to read once you are used to it. The battery indicator is a nice feature not found on most of solar watches including some high end eco-drive series from citizen. Once fully charged the battery lasts for about 9 months without further charge. So if you are wearing it regularly there is no need to bother about further charging. The facility to adjust the hands to zero position is another bonus feature. The seconds hand ticks bang on to the indicator markers and speaks for the high built quality. The only hitch is the day indicator which tends to be off by a few mm despite zeroing multiple times. A lot of online forums have also complained the same. Not a deal breaker though. The 5 independent motors which operate underneath make switching from one function to another very easy and fast. Some of the these complicated watches otherwise take a very long time to change time zones.

This watch does not have LED light like ERA-200B-1AVDR model. I wonder why Casio eliminated this feature because this is in the same genre and a more expensive watch than ERA-200B-1AVDR. Setting up the watch initially can be a little tedious but Casio website has excellent videos which make the job easy. The manual in my personal opinion is a little confusing.

The link for casio instruction site is: http://www.casio-intl.com/wat/sp/operation_guide/edifice/EQS-500DB/en/index.html

To sum it up, this is an extremely value for money watch with multiple features. Its bang for the buck. Though it is not a dress watch, it still can go well with a formal dress or a casual outing.

This watch is indeed a great achievement in the modern history for Casio as it is powered by solar energy which makes it special; and with its unique design and features like Alarm, Annual Calendar, Chronograph, Multiple Timezone.This watch has a beautiful dial and with red and black combination of colors in the dial is absolutely impressive and it has 5 independent motors for each feature so its a gem and I am sure those who will buy this watch will be noticed in the public.
