On 27th May 2019, while at Narita Airport catching my flight to Melbourne on Japan Airlines Business Class Sky Suite (click here to read my review and see for yourself why Japan Airlines is an Award Winning Airline), I bought myself a Casio Edifice Solar Powered Bluetooth watch as a souvenir for My Tokyo Trip 2019.
When I reached Melbourne and started playing with the Edifice watch I bought in Narita Airport and was blown away with the ease of setting/adjusting the watch automatically using my Smartphone via Bluetooth. I was so impressed with the Smartphone link with the watch that I started a Japanese Solar Powered Watch Fan Club and asked my followers to forward to me thier watches. To my surprised, many of them owned the Casio G-Shock GMW-B5000 series. Click here to see my friends’ and my Japanese Solar Watches.
On 2th June 2019, while in Melbourne, I dropped by Myer and they were having a 25% sale for all watches. I then bought a G-Shock GW-B5600BC-1 because I really like the new Composite Stainless Steel and Resin bracelet in addition that is was solar powered and has Bluetooth. Once again I was blown away when I found out that this watch was a technological wonder where it adjust the time automatically based on radio signals transmitted by 6 stations around the world. Therefore this watch is freaking good for traveling where I do not need to be bothered adjusting the time wherever I am on planet earth. Then only I knew why many of my friends who are fans of Rolex watches also own the Casio G-Shock GMW-B5000 series and I hope it was not because of fashion purposes, haha.
After playing with the GW-B5600BC-1 and found that this cheapo watch (compared to a Rolex) is packed with technology wonders, i decided I shall then splurge a bit more money on a full metal model and I really like the Gold colour and therefore started my hunt for it, hahaha.
