    There is one for the 1000C I know of and just a thread for the gulfmaster in general. Have not seen a thread specific to the 1000B.

    hi, my name is sbm and im in love with the beast.

    from the wruwt
    well this was a very unexpected surprise! i love it when the planets align and you cant avoid it if you tried!
    forget the grail, i captured a unicorn!! :D :D :D


    late for tank tuesday but in time for GPWednesday
    initial impression was... wow.. just wow. then it was.. man this band is sticky, thats gonna get annoying since i usually wear them slightly loose... then i worked out why its sticky. it needs to be so it doesnt leave indents and bruises on the back of your hand when it slides down! lol a notch tighter and it feels much better. even with its heft it wears surprisingly well.
    have not been able to stop looking at it! even when i threw it on straight out the box and the time wasnt set, 3 hours of looking at the wrong time and another half hour of added dst when we dont have it lol

    had to do a manual time set while i was working last night because it came with a low charge and i was trapped in a building! did give it a try tho and got the polite "no" response lol

    ive always been modest in my single purchase spending but im beginning to see why ppl fork out a bit more for purchases this of course is not going to bode well for me or my wallet....
    Yippie kayak other buckets!

    Hi guys,

    Very interested in this model.

    Just wondering if the dlc coating on the steel bezel works or is just a gimmick?

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

    Little late to the party but I went into my ad a couple of days ago with a blue astron chrono in mind and walked out with a 1B and loads of spare change :)



    Having had the 2 side by side, it got really hard to justify paying 3x the price for the astron. Sure it was nice but definitely not 2k nicer. The GPW just stood out and the value proposition was just right so count me in!

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

    Well... the urge did not last very long, because I bought one!

    I did what I have not done about 20 watches ago, I actually went to a retail store and purchased the watch. The last time I did that was about 8 years ago when I bought my Oris Divers watch.

    They had one in every colour except RAF version, they even have the bracelet with gold accents. The very attractive sales girl sold it to me a at a price I could not resist, cheaper than most online prices. As a bonus, I read the warranty card and it has 2 years in store replacement warranty!

    So count me in, GPW-1000-1B, I decided to go for the stealthiest version.










    And yes, believe the hype... cause it's real! Everything I have heard about this watch is true, it looks and feels amazing! Make no mistake, it is HUGE! But it surprisingly wears well on smaller wrists.

    I truly love this beast!
