I've recently been looking into getting an analog G with a very legible chrono. Thanks to member feedback here, I've been looking into the GW-A1100. Is there any reason why it didn't get mentioned much here, recently not in searching past posts? I know it doesn't have an hourly beep nor a light. However, it looks pretty good for functionality in an all analog model.

1, gravity masters anagital wins over analog
2. price point
3. gw-3000, gw-3500 smaller, move colorful, and we already have these
4. f17 members are more likely to spend money on digital, anadigital than analog
5. sometimes, the release time is just not right, maybe people already spent on or saving for something

Thanks. For points 1&3, the Anafrog and the MRG/MTG/MST get plenty of adoration.

For point 3, the 3500 is AniDigital and the 3000 uses the tiny subdial for the chrono.

I owned at least 3 different versions of this watch. It's a pretty nice watch, comfortable, good looking. Lack of a backlight not ideal. I think I sold mine because my attention got diverted to other models like the GPW-1000.

They came out 5-6 years ago at least, so that's probably why they're not seen on here often.

Another small stopwatch subdial. ☹

Yes. I don't think I ever used the stopwatch on the GPW-1000. I do remember using it often though on the GW-A1100. (don't recall what the measurement limit was on it)

It probably just fell through the cracks. It was released at a time when there were several other high end G-Shocks and those over shadowed it. it is a nice watch and looks very good in person. It seems well made without any resin creaking sounds when you flex your wrist.

As for a analog G-Shock with a chrono that is easy to read, the Gravitymaster GPW-2000 is the big daddy. It is very easy to read. The lume is almost Seiko monster like and it has a LED backlight that you can use as a backup flashlight as it is so bright.

It also has multiband atomic sync, GPS sync and Bluetooth sync making it one of the few watches to have all 3 sync features (along with a few Oceanus models)

I like mine a lot although I don't wear it as often as some others (e.g. the Q1000 Gulfmaster) because 1) it doesn't have an LED, 2) is not an ana-digi, and 3) doesn't have great lume (the Seiko Tuna beats everything in that department as far as I'm concerned). But it looks good, has sapphire, and I do bust it out when it's sunny and I'm in the mood to wear it 😊

I didn't mean any disrespect. I was just challenging your assumptions as to why there's not much buzz on f17 about this model.

Also, the GW-4000 doesn't use the main dial for the stopwatch. Docbrauni is correct that this other non-G models use the main dial for stopwatch.

For a watch with no backlight, it’s lume is pretty decent, especially for a Casio. It went thru the full night for me before.
