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

    I've had my Astron for a while now (18 mo) and been very happy with it but wanted to see the same capabilities in a good field watch. Thanks to a motivated seller on eBay, I was able to score a GPW-1000-1A for a decent price. This also happens to be my first G-Shock too! Love how it syncs so much fast than the Astron for time, seems about the same duration for location sync. Kinda miss having a fuel gauge though but the built-in LED was already put to use in a pitch black garage. Love it!

    One thing I noticed, today was sunny in the morning, so I went out to drive about Tokyo while my wife was shopping with her friends, and while stopped at a traffic light, at about 12 noon, the watch started doing odd things by itself, noticed the seconds hand stopping for a bit and the mode hand went to 12 o'clock, then all went back to normal. I wasn't fast enough to video it but snapped a pic right after.
    I guess was doing some syncing, since during the night it was sitting in the car deep in the hotel's parking lot conveyor belt.

    Couple of days ago I snapped this near Mito. BTW, been measuring radiation with my GammaScout and haven't found any in Tokyo, and also all the way up to Mito. I also measured there in the coast, and it was just like normal background radiation in Germany. 0.08 Microsieverts/hr. I always measure water runoffs. Also food, so far so good.
    Enjoy this pic:

    I'm really interested in the GPW-1000-1B - can anyone point me in the right direction in regards to securing at a good price? I'm in Australia but understand I will pay in USD not a problem.

    Are you after a new or second hand watch? With new ones, they usually go for about $900 AUD online, but at that price, I'd rather purchase them in an AD in Australia. Melbourne Myer has a G Factory, and they usually participate in Myer's sales, there was a 20% off sales about a month ago, which means $1199 * 0.8 = ~$960 AUD

    If you are comfortable with second hand ones, have a look at the sales section of the forum, they can be had for around $700 - $800 AUD. Think I saw one listed this week for $590 USD ~ $760 AUD

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

    I just got my 2nd gpw1000-4a delivered today. This one has the orignal orange band, and the black link band. I bought it because I wanted a black band, but they (pacparts) were out of stock. I suppose I could have bought a GPW1000FC... but I guess what's done is done.
    So for now I own two! I will be selling my original one though to pay off the 2nd!

    I basically did the same thing bobbyco. I bought the 1B, ordered the bracelet from pacparts, then found a 1A with bracelet and bought it, then canceled my bracelet order haha. I like the 1A more now so I'm keeping that one.

    The 4A is definitely great looking too, something about that orange band that I really like.
