    Super happy with the GPW, not sure if it makes sense with a tux ;)
    Personally, I prefer the looks of the Beast...

    I do like some of the Astrons, but IMHO the Beast is a much better value. If the Astrons came down a LOT in price it would be more of a contest. But even if they cost the same I think I would still opt for the G-Shock.

    I'm a little surprised to see that the 1A isn't the most popular. I knew that the RAFs would be popular since they're a limited edition, but I didn't expect to see so many here.

    But, I think they all look awesome. If I could afford it I'd have one of each!

    R/C = Receive(ing) The module is 'qw5410' . Go to this site, download the manual & find out everything about the watch. You'll love the 'GPS' sync if you get one.

    @JohnQFord - thanks

    Just downloaded & read the manual as the copy that came with the watch is in Japanese. Guess I won't see the use of RC much as in Malaysia, I can't receive radio wave signal.

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

    Another question to fellow "Beast" owners.

    Today is the 4th day into my ownership of this awesome piece. Still trying to learn all its tricks and nuances. I am based in a location whereby I can't receive any atomic radio wave reception thus the primary mode of sync will be via GPS. I know that the watch will try to sync with radio wave from 12-5am. Hence in the morning when I did a sync result check (i.e. pressing the lower right button), I will get a "No" result eventhough on the previous day I have done a manual GPS time sync and a "Yes" was recorded. This confirm that the watch tried a RC sync at night during the stipulated timeframe.

    Now, my question is how do I confirm that the watch did an auto GPS sync? The manual states that from 6-10am it will do so provided that it senses adequate light for 2 minutes. This morning, I stood out in the open directly under the sun for more than 2 minutes with the dial facing upward without seeing any activity. A press on the lower right button still return a "No". In the end I did a manual GPS time sync and succeeded.

    On E-33 of the manual, it states that you need to have had a successful radio time reception the previous night for automatic GPS time reception to occur during the day.

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

    hi, i live in a place where theres no radio control signal as well so i always rely on GPS.
    i tried this morning and it can auto sync GPS.
    i tried to compare it with the Astron , both work
    the astron immidiatelly try to sync with GPS as soon as the watch see an open sky / shone by the sunlight.
    the GPW however not imidiatelly sync its time.
    just wait about 1-2 minutes under open sky in bright daylight, and the second hand will move to "time" and the (day hand) will move up and down) after few seconds the second hand moves to YES. and the time will be synced.
    hope it helps.
