...again there the all black is the 1000. Starting to look like there are no all black 1001s or even 1100s for that matter.

What's the difference between 1000 and 1001?

I think the functions are the same other than the 1001 is non-atomic and non-solar.

The GS-1001 can show the day name of the week (user manual module 4799): Press A-button and the second hand in the 6 o'clock sub-window moves to point to the name of the day of the week and the main-dial/stopwatch second hand moves to point to the currently specified home city name. After about 3 seconds both of these hands move back to original positions before having pressed the A-button.

I like that the GS-1001 can display the name of the week.
I also like that the GS-1001 can show two time zones at once, and that the main dial is used exclusively to show the current time.

I had been tossing between GS-1000 and GS-1100 due to different combo of features and display, but now that I live in Hawaii (Maui), where I understand the reception of atomic sync for Wave Ceptor is suspect, the GS-1001 seems a fitting compromise...with added benefits. Just wish it were solar....

I like the color offerings of the GS-1001, as well-- the white face GS-1001-7ADR looks nice to me.

I forgot about the day indicator on the 1001s. It's one of the only features of the 1100 I like over the 1000 but can deal with it. If the main hands on the 1001 are used all the time for local time it's surely a better option than the 1100 if you are not in range for the atomic signal.

It is kind of unfortunate that the GS-1001 day of week name feature can not be "locked on". But, it is nice to have the option.

Still kind of wish the GS-1001 were solar. I've been burned by a bad G-5600 solar, but my G-7000 solar is awesome! I don't know if the GS-1000 solar is suspect to failure, but I do like the idea of solar-- but, my big question is:

- if I were to use a GS-1000 solar/wave ceptor, would it not roll the date properly for month transitions ending in 30 days? I need to re-read the other threads on this forum discussing the "perpetual calendar". If the GS-1000 must sync to atomic time to get month-to-month and leap years correct, then, here in Hawaii, I'd best go for the GS-1001!

I think the conclusion is that the 1000 is a non-perpetual calendar. I hope to confirm it 100% on 1 Mar 2008.

Giez GS-1000 series requires manual date change for 30th to 1st rollovers if no atomic sync performed that night: Per the GS-1000 module 4343 manual, page 6 "Setting the Time and Data Manually":

"When you are using the watch in an area that supports time calibration signal reception, it will adjust the date automatically for month lengths and leap years. If you use it in an area that does not support signal reception, you will have to make adjustments for month lengths and leap year manually."
