    If you want to quickly access UTC time (Zulu time) it is not a one click operation. It works the same on all GPW-1000 models, but the RAF has the "Z" printed on the B button to remind us how to do it.

    1. Pull the crown out to the first click
    2. Press and hold the B button for at least 1 second.
    3. The small sub-dial at the 8 position will change to display current time in the UTC time zone
    4. Push the crown back in

    I should have gotten that model instead of the RAF. The RAF is very nice, but it is not black resin, it's grey. More like the Sea and Earth Rangeman. It's nice, but from pictures I really thought it was black. Your model is really cool, the darker hour markers are stealthy, kind of like the new Gulfmaster that is stealthy black.

    The UTC time in the small hands requires good eyes to see precision, besides the second or minute hand doesn’t be set on the small dial.

    When you are in a cockpit of a mirage, you just have a very short time to have a look at the watch. That’s right ?
    The UTC time in the small hands seems to be a gadget for professionnal. But at home, it would be interesting.

    As the aviators seems to use the UTC (Zulu) time, I ask me if they rather use the UTC time in the normal hands and the current time in the small hands :

    For professionnal use :
    To have current ime in current zone (at small hands)
    1. Pull the crown out to the first click
    2. Turn the crown to select the city reference
    3. The small sub-dial at the 8 position will change to display current time at selected zone
    4. Push the crown back in

    To have UTC time as current settings at normal hands
    1. Pull the crown out to the second click
    2. Turn the crown to select UTC position (at 12 O’Clock)
    4. Push the crown back in

    At home, this will be the inverse.

    Can someone confirm or invalidate ?

    Otherwise, at the G-Shock | G-SHOCK launch the GPW-1000RAF GPS Aviator watch in collaboration with the ROYAL AIR FORCE :
    When the embossed red ‘Z’ is pressed the hands immediately set to Zulu time, returning to local time after a few seconds. That’s right too ?

    Cheers.

    Really? I bought the RAF specifically because it is grey. And I'm in the middle of a huge grey kick. If I didn't do the RAF, I would have done either the 1A or 2A.

    I do like it and it looks awesome in the grey. I just have more of a love of all black G-Shocks. Not selling it and will be wearing it a lot, no worries on that. For the most part it looks black or a very deep grey. Any of the GPW models are awesome. I'd wear any of them personally.

    It's one of the nicest looking aviators in my opinion no matter what color resin, band color or bezel color - all are great looking. I wonder if any special color versions will be released - like an all orange model similar to the orange rescue GWA1100-4AJF? Or an all blue or all red? Would look very nice (even though black is my favorite in general).

    Now the waiting begins, heck still waiting for some stuff from a previous order too!
    So that answers that question. I shouldn't expect less than 3 weeks for the turnaround. What will I do until then?

    Do the GPW 1000's have the 'auto LED light' feature? (Light automatically turns on when wearer turns it towards them). Looking about, and on Casio site, it says it does, on others not.

    I'm going to go with "no."

    If it does, I haven't found a way to make it happen.

    Just consider the lume to be the "auto-illumination." ;)
