    Re: GPW : "T H E B E A S T" THREAD OF AWESOMENESS - Title says it all.

    do this beast have auto sync gps funtion like the Seiko Astron GPS ?
    on the Astron GPS every morning when the watches see the sunlight it will auto sync the time with the GPS satellite without pushing any button
    it will perform the syncing provided there is enough sunlight and sky above to recieved at least 1 satellite and enough charge on the battery.
    how about this casio ?
    as i want to purchase 1 to be my daily watch and to compliment the astron .
    thank you

    Yes, The Beast automatically attempts to synchronize. The difference is that The Beast first attempts to synchronize via terrestrial radio signals from the 6 transmitters throughout the globe, something the Astron can't do. It attempts to do this every hour from midnight to 0500. If any of these attempts is successful then no further attempts are made until the next time midnight rolls around. If none of the terrestrial radio attempts are successful, The Beast will attempt synchronization via GPS the next time it detects bright sunlight, just like the Astron.

    It looks awesome with that link bracelet! But I find the carbon fiber resin strap to be so thick and comfy!

    Re: GPW : "T H E B E A S T" THREAD OF AWESOMENESS - Title says it all.

    okay , thx for the reply
    anyway i've decided to get one of these beast.
    but can't decide on which model to get.

    i had GWA-1000FC-1A
    and i like it's colour combination alot.
    and also i love the compisite bracelet that comes with it.
    but the only thing that bother me its the hour mark that are grey plastic, it looks cheap,
    looked cheaper than my friend's GWA-1000-1A which has white plastic hour mark.

    so i can't decide yet on this GPW.
    innitially i wanted the

    GPW-1000-1B

    but i noticed it has the same "grey" hourmark as the GWA-1000FC-1A which i dont really like.
    then i was thinking since i want it to be in composite bracelet,
    then the

    GPW-1000-4A
    then i buy the composite bracelet somewhere from online.
    but i dont know wheter it will "match" the colour well or not since i still curious about how orange the ring
    and wheter it will match the black composite bracelet or not.
    so i photoshop a little bit and comes out

    is it good pair ?
    i really can't decide

    and on top of that , i just saw the FC version

Views: 750
Size:  52.7 KB
    GPW-1000FC-1A
    which i like the colour and i can have it cheaper than the first 2 options to buy the non FC watch and seperate composite bracelet.
    but i dont like the white "G-Shock" and "protection" wording.
    can i just change that part of the bezel to be black ?
    do pacparts sell those parts ?
    and is it easy to apply?

    thank you and sorry for the questions, i just need some inputs before i jump and buy one.
    i can easilly fit and change my normal strap to composite band
    but i don't know wheter i can change that "bezel" parts wihtout screwing up the watch,
    thank you.

    Hi, I am in similar position as you. But I had bought a GPW1000 4A with the orange bezel and planning to customise a leather strap by one of my strap maker. Below are 2 ideas I had sketched so far.

    I'm sure the CF strap is sturdier. It makes the watch look that much more "off-road." The link bracelet makes it more like a Range Rover, used to take the kids to school and pick up groceries.

    The clasp is exponentially more convenient to remove than the buckle. There is also a reduction in "bulk," slimming the profile so it better fits under sleeves. The links form better to the wrist, eliminating "hot spots" when trying to size it. Therefore, I can much better dial in the size to get the "just right" sweet spot. It has just enough slack that it doesn't constrict, but it still stays put and doesn't flop around too much. I'd say at most there is one full width of the band of play on my wrist.

    And, as you can see, it now matches my GW-M5600BC. However, the 5600 has both metal and resin links. The GPW band is all resin, with metal inserts where the pins insert. Plus, I think it's a nice touch that this watch is unique, in a color and style combination not offered by Casio, with the blue city ring and blue accents. I loved the other FC watches, but I found the gold to be a bit too garish, and the grey a bit too, grey.

    This watch DESERVES this bracelet. They were destined to be together.

    Re: GPW : "T H E B E A S T" THREAD OF AWESOMENESS - Title says it all.

    hi so about the outer bezel where the writing "G-Shock" and "Protection" are written
    are they easy to change by our self ?
    i see on pacparts, is this the correct item ?

    Casio
    91087144696
    Bezel/SS Top (G-SHock)


    it listed for $73
    i really want if it can make my GPW-1000FC-1A bezel look cleaner (black Gshock and Protection) writing instead of white.
    please anyone that are familiar with this help me, thank you.
