The LCW-M150TD-1AER: global precision while travelling


Norderstedt, August 2010 – Radio-controlled watches are becoming increasingly popular. No wonder, as anyone who travels widely across different time zones for business or pleasure enjoys the convenience of a display which always shows the right time. Casio is a pioneer in the manufacture of radio-controlled, precision watches. With the LCW-M150TD-1AER, it now presents a worthy, contemporary successor to the successful WVA-M150TDE. The new model boasts Multiband 6 radio-controlled technology and, like its predecessor, features an ultra-slim casing.

Stylish, sophisticated and functional, this new gentlemen’s radio-controlled watch is a versatile timepiece, which excels in both appearance and technology. The slim, solid titanium casing, just 8.6 mm thick, and the smart titanium band guarantee optimum wearing comfort, stylishness and light weight. The high-grade sapphire glass protects the LCW-M150TD against unsightly scratches while the Neo display ensures time is clearly visible, even in dark environments.

In terms of technological features, the new LCW-M150TD even outstrips its predecessor, since it features Multiband 6 radio-controlled technology. This not only assures radio signal reception in Europe, the US and Japan, but also detection of the Chinese radio signal, a first for this watch series. The watch is powered through a self-sufficient, environmentally friendly system: TOUGH SOLAR technology. Based on an integrated solar cell, this system stores solar energy in a rechargeable battery. The LCW-M150TD is the perfect watch for men of the world.

The LCW-M150TD-1AER features the following functions:

• MULTIBAND 6 RADIO SIGNAL RECEPTION (EUROPE, USA, JAPAN, CHINA)
• TOUGH SOLAR
• STOPWATCH

• <LED> LIGHT
