A great feature of the Automatic is that a) it doesn’t have a battery, b) it doesn’t require a light source and c) setting Time Zones or Summer Times is a simple case of crown out, move hands, crown in – job done. No instruction booklets
Don’t ask which one I prefer because I like them all. They each do exactly what they’re supposed to do and do it very well
So there you have it. Two models, same Module, same amazing functions, yet cosmetically different enough to attract different buyers with different preferences. Both very Classic in their overall appearance and both functionally very good.
There’s no question in my mind and fortunate for my wallet, that in general with Casio, I find the low to mid range priced models represent best value. I invariably find the more expensive range such as Edifice and above in comparison do not.
