Ah - my GW-3000B-1AER has arrived and she is a beaut'!

My fav G-shock yet - as big of a pressence as a Suunto Core but with more reliability (oops now ive started something....).



Really liking the orange and how deep the face is. This is a big watch on wrist and isnt gonna fit under a shirt cuff so its a good thing the sun has come to the UK. :)

There was alot of interest in the office today when my package arrived, I think I'll be seeing a few more of these around soon.

Very cool !!!
Nice looking watch. Congratulations and enjoy it!


What about its functions, are you happy with them? I have a GW-3000D, and to be honest, I think the functions are silly. A chronometer that counts up to 24min then and again? A subdial that serves the only purpose of displaying time in 24h format? Come on, Casio!

A VERY nice looking watch, but a little disappointing when it comes to functions, IMO.
Nice looking watch :-!

I wish they were cheaper. For those that want more functions you have to either get all digital or an analog digital like the GA-100 Analogs just are not capable of displaying all that information. The ones that have more functions make you normally wait for the hands to move to there location for info, cant beat digital quickness.

you are certainly right about the quickness and overall better functions of a straight digital watch. question remains why casio cropped a nearly perfect module of the GW-2000 series and made the GW-3000 series inferior (except for tough movement) to the point where it becomes almost next to useless (as a chrono)...:think:

I often wonder what it would be like to be a fly on the wall in a Casio meeting ;-) I really dont know how they make there minds up on things. Just look at the new GA 110 there are a couple here that like the fruit salad colors but I have to wonder are they going to sell and who at casio made up the color choices. I know kids will like them but hey they have cell phones to tell them the time.
Congratulations!:-! A very cool G-Shock. I have the GW-3000B-1AJF.

As to criticism of the functions, maybe the chrono is not the best. But there's plenty of choice out there if one wants/needs a G with a more comprehensive chrono function. That's one of the things I like about G's. There is plenty of variety...and always another purchase on the horizon.:)
Veeeery nice.... :p
Hey,

I'm thinking of getting one of these myself as a proper beater (my orange monster is excellent, but if I go a weekend without wearing it, I have to reset the time, every time!).

How high does it wear? I'm used to reasonably chunky watches under shirt sleeves, but just want to know just how chunky it is!

Also, where did you get it from? I'm looking for a UK seller. (Not sure about the rules on posting that, so rather than get in trouble, feel free to message me if you like!).

Ta,
Tom

Hi Tom

To answer your questions in order:

1. It wears chunky. Its bigger than standard G-shocks Ive tried. Its height on wrist is gonna stop it fitting under the work shirt though. I used to wear a Suunto Core and this definitely compares in size but because the suunto had rounded edges it was shirt freindly.

Dimensions: 52,5mm x 49,8mm x 15,5mm (H x W x D)

2. I purchased from Watchhut for 拢146.30 (using a 5% off code otherwise it would have been 拢 154.00) but there now out of stock :-( Perhaps you could email them? Loks like they put the price up though to 拢166?!

Tiktox have it listed as 拢153.93 but no stock but Im certain they'll get more (and if you find a cheaper price they will try to match)

mmmmm thats the one I would of had if I wasnt a poor graphic designer. Nice :-d
that is a fine looking beast,
can you confirm if the stopwatch is 24hour or 24 min, as i'm thinking of getting one. I quite often need to time things for work that are between 2 and 3 hours so a 24 min stopwatch would be useless.
Stopwatch is only 24 minutes one these...

But since it goes round and round, you can measure longer if you keep track of how many times the dial has been rounded.
