Casio 2018 GX56BB-1 Watch G-Shock XL King of G Shock Black on Black
Great looking watch when I got it . Loved it until in the shower it fogged up and never was the same . Meant to have rated underwater capacity .. didn’t even pass the shower test .really sucks and as someone who has has 3 previous g shocks goes against the whole point of having a rugged watch . Also if you use the auto light expect your watch to consistently have low battery warnings so that’s a pointless function as well
I received a "returned" watch. Watch was stained, greasy...etc. God only knows what the first owner did while wearing it. Looked like it was re-packed by a chimp.
I own a Casio Edifice ECB500D-1A. It is a watch, which I wear, each time I went out. Sure, it is a sports/dress hybrid, kind of watch. However, the watch cost, too much to wear in the outdoors and has, too much of a fancy look to wear, more than, casually. Therefore, I went on the hunt for an all-black, military, stealth-looking, solar-powered, heavy-duty watch, which I can for the outdoors. I saw the G-Shock GX-56BB Blackout Series and was in awe. It had the features I wanted and more.
Great watch! really love the blackout face. The watch is pretty big but has a very rugged and tough look to it. I do wish it had atomic time keeping but i know that would bring the price up as well. I am glad it has the solar feature so i don't have to worry about changing the battery anytime soon. Overall at around a hundred bucks i feel this is a great watch to add to your G-shock collection.
Greetings my name is Albert Camacho, I like Casio watches, I have more than 20 years using only this watch brand. Buy this model GX-56BB for the reason that it is solar and in my country Rep. Dom. Is a very sunny, and I thought to buy this watch that was not going to have problems with clock for at least 10 years.
I've owned many sports watches, most of them cheaper than this one. However, this is the first one that I've ever gotten water inside (perhaps it was always there). I have no idea how the water got in, as I have not gone diving with the watch and at most have swam briefly in a small pool. In any case the watch is NOT water resistant. Because of the water damage it's almost impossible to read the time. When the weather changes and the watch fogs up and you can't read it at all. Although it has a nice "tough" look about it, it does have many limitations. Even without the water fogging up inside, it is very hard to read the numbers in low light. In either direct sunlight or pressing the light button at night it is ok. Again, low light is the problem. Overall, I would not reccomend this watch at all. Save your money and buy a cheaper, more reliable watch.
The size, the finish and the style is immense. You can wear this to any occasion. For those that were wondering about the size like I did. I attached a picture compared to one of the more common rounded g-shock.
Overbuilt, masculine, and absolutely functional, this is one of my favorite EDC watches. I bought it specifically for military training, where I need to use the stopwatch frequently, and it has been a lifesaver. The buttons are massive and easy to press (great when wearing gloves), the screen is huge, and the illumination works perfectly. When training in the dark, I never leave without this on my wrist.
Everything I expected in a G-Shock. Big, tough, those signature difficult-to-push buttons, all the timezones, stopwatch and countdown etc., all the features we are used to. I don't find it difficult to read the black on black display, although I can see how some people would. This is the first G-Shock I've owned with the dual prong latch. But the nice part is instead of fiddling with two individual prongs, it's a forked prong, so putting it on is very easy. If I had all kinds of cash I might also buy the black and red version of this watch. The blacked out look is cool but a tiny bit of colour would be interesting. Still I am very happy with this purchase.
WOW, primero que nada esta enorme lo cual me gusta, mido 1.90 y soy de muñeca grande y se ve genial, al ser solar te olvidad de que pierda el sello contra agua al cambiar la bateria. Muy resistente.
El reloj Casio G-Shock GX-56BB-1D es muy bonito, llegó con la caja destapada y el sobre a medio abrir, no muy confiablemente lo abrí y el reloj estaba fuera de su caja.
Extraordinario reloj, simplemente perfecto, es un reloj con características increíbles, vale cada centavo que cuesta, soy amante de los relojes y éste es francamente uno qué merece una posición aparte, es atemporal, super resistente, tamaño perfecto para hombre, deportivo y en un color elegante, no se arrepentirán de comprarlo, vaya, por algo es el rey de los g shock.
This is my first watch from Casio and now I got them. I wanted a watch with a large dial and to be special. I tried different Casio watches and they all seemed faded and small. When I received them - I immediately fell in love with me. They are completely black and big as I wanted.
This watch is totally a badass. It is big, really big and bulky yet I love it. It is a G-Shock on asteroids. Very masculine and rugged. It is bulky and will not fit under a shirt sleeve. It is a totally suitable for weekends and relaxed out fits. The negative display is a bit hard to read and I will end up using the built in light a lot. It is built like a tank with a tough solar cell so it will never need a battery replacement. The seller is awesome. The watch is brand new. I had some bad luck recently with a few used watches sold as brand new. Not this seller whom I highly recommend. I’m very happy with how the watch looks and it is a keeper.
So if you dont like the black negative display then this watch is not for you, i personally like it, quality is good, big watch which i also like it, totally recommended.
Bought this watch a while ago and I couldn't be happier with it. It's solar so I just leave it in the kitchen to get some light sometimes. But the battery is so good you don't really have to do this often. Only problem someone could have with this watch is the size of it. Its really big. But I am a big dude so my opinion stays at 5 star cause it fits me like a charm!
Everything is as expected of a G-Shock. The build quality is amazing. However, when it comes to legibility there are some significant issues with this model. 1. The white/transparent characters against a black background makes information quite hard to read. 2. The screen seems more reflective than it might be with a black background behind it. This makes all the fingerprints and dust particles that much visible and spoil your view when you turn your wrist to check time in presence of a light source (that causes the reflection).
Wanted this for a long time, as I found the regular Casio squares too small for my 7.5 inch wrist. When I got it discounted to 140 CAD, it was too good to pass up. The watch is big, like really big, but light so you don't really feel it on the wrist. I have worn it for a day at the beach, and have not really had any issue with the negative display, though I dearly would have preferred a positive LCD display. Two days outdoors took the charge to H and it has stayed there for the last two weeks indoors
Great looking watch. Size is perfect for my wrist if you like chunky watches. But I have to say the quality is not there. only after 4 months of daily wear the watch face fogs up when going between temperature differences under the glass and you cannot see anything.
A tough watch that makes a statement with it's sheer size. I really want to like this watch. However, I have a difficult time seeing the display in all but the brightest light. The EL backlight is very brief... allowing me to read the time quickly, but if I need to do anything else (Set an alarm, for example.) I am forced to turn on a bright lamp. I would highly recommend this watch if it had a positive display. EDIT: I recently purchased a small sheet of polarized film and modded the watch. It now has a great easy to read positive display. My favourite watch now!
Buen reloj, mido 1.90 y este reloj va deacuerdo a mi talla. Lo compré como en $1600 así que fue muy buena compra.
