You @Ferretnose are real 2k-Ma5ter 😉👍 Congrats for the nice portrait 😍
Thanks, TTV! Ma5tr, very clever!

Gwg2K Flame Red look stunning in this family potrait.🔥
I wonder which one is your favorite?! 😁
Fav. colorway, probably the A5 with green strap replacing the original tan (far left.) But most worn is the stealthy A1 (top) which I put on an Uncle Seiko (now Uncle Straps) rubber. So comfortable.

I must say, as a new member of the club I find the strap fairly uncomfortable. The rubber is much stiffer than I expected. Which strap did you go with from Uncle Straps?

Went with the GL831 oxidized, currently on sale at US for $29. Nice and flexible, and the subdued finish continues the stealth theme. Of course this also required the Jaysandkays adapters, found on Ebay for $15+shipping and tax. Winds up a bit heavier than stock, but well worth it in terms of wearability.

I find the watch to be very uncomfortable. So much so that I never wear it. Within minutes of putting it on my wrist feels a bit sore and I can't wait to rip the watch off. The stupid 'wings' dig into my wrist bone.

Can see this happening, especially if you have a broad, flat wrist. At least the "wings" on the 2K have more "give," more flexibility compared to the 1K. While I'm tempted to suggest the Jaysandkays adapters, which allow for the use of NATOs and other straps, the adapter ends also extend below the plane of the caseback. The ends are farther apart than the stock pieces but inflexible. Also possibly more expensive to get in the UK. I do wish Casio would upgrade the resin bands, especially on more expensive pieces like the GWG muddies. Good luck.

I had the GWG-100 previously and that was comfortable to wear for hours. No issues whatsoever. It had wings and a resin strap but crucially different dimensions.:cry:
