    GPW1000-1b. Purchased from eBay 2 weeks ago. Turns main out body and circuit board needed replacement. Got half my money back from seller and sent to Casio repair in New Jersey. Works like brand new. They even sent me a case and new instruction booklet like I had purchased a new beast. Highly recommend Casios repair.Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1429552504358.jpg

    No I purchased from ebay seller. Came with hour and second not moving. Also the 24 hour sub dial as not moving. I followed all the instructions and could not get any movement. I called Casio repair and they said send to repair facility in NJ. No the seller did not disclose any issues with the watch. But he offered me 50 percent refund which I gladly accepted. Repairs cost 139 and somechange. I took my beast out of the box and it promptly went into receive mode by GPS. It set by itself with no assistance. I am extremely happy there was no major issue with the watch. Casio said the movement alone was half the price of the watch.

    What kind of 'feedback' did you give on eBay in this situation ?
    "watchuseek" ... From a lost indigenous dialect ... meaning ... "Bet you can't buy just one !!!"

Any help is appreciated. I love all three watches that I mentioned pretty much the same and I just don't know, lol. I want all 3!!
    They are not tight!!! You can adjust them to the exact orientation you want. Did that with mine.

    Unfortunately I gave a positive to soon. A negative would have been appropriate. But since I got 50 per cent of the purchase price back and was taking a chance that repairs would be minor. I am happy I got the beast for a song. After the Casio repair facility got done this is a new watch. They did a fantastic job.

    Oh one more thing, I thought I would finish my Japan trip with the one and only best iced coffee on the planet, namely a "Hoshino Hand Drip Coffee" iced version.
    Note the size of the utensils compared to the GPW, and also the frost on the copper mug !!!!
