Hi and apologies for the late response.
I do own a GW-1701 and really love it! It has a nice solid feel to it and the matt finish of the case and bracelet is nicely done as well. The analog hands are skeletonized and white, which helps in the readibility of the dial. When worn and night or in the dark the LED backlight is bright enough to read the time properly. The light's in a cool white as well:-!
Overall I think its a great ana-digi to have and the bracelet style makes it suitable for wear on more formal occasions too.
Here's a pic of mine, together with my wife's Baby-G:
