Originally got the stealth on 1October

Now added the desert to my 2k family.






Impressions wise, it鈥檚 a more classy gwg, an MTGWG for me. Softer strap, wears smaller due to being 1.9mm slimmer and with the less bulky bezel. I鈥檓 a fan, all in all a nice G . 馃憤馃徎

Apart from the CF core, is there any functionality difference between my GWG1000, and the new GWG2000?
No, both triple sensor, same functions.
What you get different
Softer strap, soft keeper(good or bad)
1.9mm slimmer
Less bulky bezel which makes it wear smaller, even though it鈥檚 roughly the same size.
Forged carbon, each gwg has a different pattern . How strong it is, time will tell. But it does feel solid. It does wear completely different (for me at least) on the wrist. But I do love both the 1k and 2k.

I have a average wrist at 7.5" which seems to offer either the too tight or too loose strap hole option for me .. so I have that going for me but the strap is comfy cozy & I like the keeper.


Who else has the 2k on the wrist ? Heard our members over in the UK were getting these rather quickly.

I want to see that grey/ slight tan ish variant on the wrist.

I got mine on the release date 1st October . I went stealth. I was torn between desert and stealth. At checkout I went back from desert馃し馃徎鈥嶁檪锔. But I kind of new which I didn鈥檛 get, I would probably end up with.

Ironically, all the 'differences' are things I'm not keen on (I like the bulk of the 1000) however, I'm a sucker for Caron Fiber!
Don鈥檛 get me wrong, it鈥檚 still a large G! It just wears smaller than the 1k for me. Being 1.9mm slimmer. But it鈥檚 still a larger G and around same surface area as the 1k.


1k and 2k lum

Slim but not slim馃 It鈥檚 still a chunk compared to many Gs

Stealthy is a great combo .. the both in cart moment and one must get deleted is a moment we will suffer with I'll assume lol damn opportunity costs ... every choice comes with not choosing something else arghhhh. It sounds like we both should have been born billionaires damn it.

馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃtell me about it. I鈥檓 rich for a day!馃槄 Gs have nothing on my flashlights and other stuff . But I enjoy Gs, still in my mind I have it all under control. There is probably 30-35 Gs in the house, that鈥檚 good for me! 20+ are mine, rest are my lads(think 8) and baby Gs(3 of).
Back to 2k!, well the green was/is my least fav of the 3. Always wanted sand or stealth. But naturally now I鈥檓 liking the green more each day 馃し馃徎鈥嶁檪锔. I also want to see what limited are going to come out. But unless it鈥檚 not much more than 拢200 on top(have to be impressive to me), I can鈥檛 see myself paying more for a colourway and box(that鈥檚 gets stashed away). So will have to see on that one. I also don鈥檛 like having too many dupes , so chances are the next G will be an MTG of sorts. But then what stopped me this time was the size (being smaller). That鈥檚 the kind of beep I have going round my head馃槄. It鈥檚 just a bloody watch!!!!馃榾
Oh and I鈥檓 just a poor boy from a poor family鈥.馃榾

Stunning JustAbe, I鈥檓 convinced you could take a picture of a turd and make it look cool馃榾. But it鈥檚 far from it, awesome pics as always. Looks stunning. This was my least fav of the 3馃し馃徎鈥嶁檪锔 But as each day goes by it鈥檚 growing on me more and more馃榾. At this rate I could end up going for the triple! But I do try and stay away from more than 2 of same.
Decisions decisions! I think I now prefer the green to sand 鈥︹h well.

Did you find you missed the 1k at first and how different the 2k feels? I switched to the 6th whole and hope I get used to the tighter fit. Perhaps it will loosen up a bit over time. I really missed the 1k at first since it was a perfect fit and super comfortable on my wrist.
I鈥檓 between holes on the 1k, same as the RN frog. So it鈥檚 either a tad loose or tad tight. The 2k being a softer strap, I can have it on the tighter hole, but without it being uncomfortable tight鈥︹f makes sense. So I actually find the 2k a little more comfy. I tend to swap around Gs 3x a day. So morning, afternoon and evening. So I don鈥檛 really miss any that much.

As always JustAbe amazing pics, perfect lighting. One of the main highlights for me with the 2k, the forged carbon. Each mud is bespoke with a slightly different marble effect pattern. Caught beautifully by yourself. Happy halloween馃巸

I thought my day light savings was taxing the casio satellites hmmmmm. I need to source the darn tan camouflage strap for the 1000... give up what must be closely held secrets cause it's not in the normal avenues...pacparts/alibaba....

Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
Pac parts your side or tiktox uk, they ship US and Canada.
I鈥檓 always happy to help out a fellow G bro(or sis). So I can ship for you if want from UK and for some reason won鈥檛. Just pm me, all it costs is what it costs.
Double 2k so far, is that a 4K?

Yeah thanks for doing the critical R&D confirming this worse fear ... ps wanna sell that desert camo for the 1k ?

Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
No probs, I have the dc and MH for the 1k, so swap about. Actually might get another 1k(want the black) and for the MH bezel and strap on. This is the 1k with mh strap(I leave the dc one on as it looks better , matches the mode hand. The MH is a bit naff as dark green and not very noticeable )

Anyone around here can compare the GWG-2000 with the GWG-100?
Had the chance to try a GWG-100 on the wrist yesterday (7,5" wrist) and it felt surprisingly small and wearable, nothing like I was expecting
Not a gwg100 but a gg1000 and same size, the gwg2000 is a larger watch , but at 16.1mm thick, a tad slimmer .
The 2k does wear smaller for me than the size specs
read. It鈥檚 roughly the same size as the gwg1k except 1.9mm slimmer, the gwg1000 is larger of course than the gg1000 and gwg100.
My wrist is a fraction over 7.5, this gg1000 is same size as the gwg100

Hey, does anyone know if the sand beige strap is a limited edition? It seems to be selling for a hefty premium over list. Or is it just the model everyone wants right now? (I know it's my favorite.) Thanks.
No it鈥檚 not,it鈥檚 1 of 3 released. The limited edition has blue features iirc. All it could be is simply maybe selling quicker(more popular ) than the others. All have an rrp of 拢699 in UK
Stealth
Desert sand
Military green
Nothing is special or limited.馃憤馃徎

I鈥檓 the opposite hole wise on the 1k. The 2k being softer allows for a slightly tighter fit yet remains comfy.


If want perfection for, the q1000mc bracelet (new frogs to) has an awesome knurled adjuster, which allows more than 1鈥 of adjustment. Can fine tune comfort to the mm

Now the gpw1000 has a carbon fibre strap, that I find is comfortable. But the keeper doesn鈥檛 keep very well!! Can slide out easy (easy fix as just crush keeper a fraction ). However I decided to add the bracelet to this to. With the micro adjustment, excellent. And it鈥檚 light weight!



Loving my 2k鈥檚, my fav G release this year

FWIW, IMO the green 1k is the most versatile of all of the 1000s in terms of wearing different colored straps. It not only looks great with the stock green strap, but also looks fab with the camo and yellow straps, same with the Maharishi, and might even look okay with the red strap (tho have not tried it myself).

Here are a couple: (rn I have it on the camo strap, but no pics available atm)

Have to agree, I鈥檝e done exact same . The dc bezel works best to as it goes with the mode hand. So if it has the MH or dc band, the DC bezel stays put!
