    GPW-1000 high over Russia, plus a small problem I detected.

    Now, when I was up there, I tried syncing the watch to GPS several times. The first time (closer to china, earlier in the flight), it succeeded. But about the time of these pix, it did not. I tried then to try and change the timezone, and as you can see, I failed when "pushing the crown back in", I didn't wait until it finished moving the hands (PEBKAC), Ergo the watch became "out of sync" with the UTC one (smaller 24 hour dial). Check this pic:

    This pic was snapped about 30 mins after the first one above, by looking at the UTC clock, and the position of the airplane on the map, but look at the time on the large hands LOL.
    Interestingly, I then tried setting manually Helsinki time (which is same as Athens), and the hours/mins became "back in sync" with the UTC clock, tried setting it back to Tokyo time, and it was "wrong again". Funny experience.

    When I got home (Berlin), I manually set it to PAR timezone, and I left it next to my PRW-1300 on the window sill, and at about 5 am it synced with the radio signal. The PRW synced at 03:02.

    Well... just bit the bullet and ordered a second beast (GPW-1000-2A).

    Definitely not in the budget but selling my Luminox 1879 and G-Shock GWA-1100-1A3 to try and recoup a couple bucks.

    I'll post pictures when it arrives.

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

    Any difference between the 1A and the 1AJF? I know the 1AJF is the Japanese version but are there any differences feature-wise?

    I have the 1BJF , not the 1B , and although I don't have a pure 1B to compare with, all I can say is that the instructions manual is in Japanese only. Not multi-language, not even english nor klingon.

    I have purchased plenty of Sony products in Japan, and there is always an optional "E" version of them, which means the manual is in English. I suspect this follows the same principle.
    On the back plate it only says GPW-1000. The serial numbers don't mention any JF letters in them.

    Frankenizing a GPW

    Question to you guys,

    say I finally sell my emergency, and decide to go for a second GPW-1000, say the GPW-1000FC-1A.
    Can I grab my metal bezel piece, where it says G-SHOCK PROTECTION, from my 1B, and put it on the 1A ?

    I don't like the overly bright white letters there, which is one of the main reasons I went for the 1B, however, I would like the white Lume hour markers.

    So then I would have one for wearing about town, and one for thrashing (i.e. sailing, swimming in the sea, driving dirtbikes, etc).

    Here would be the end result sorta:

    That's simply the result of an affliction called ... wait for it ... Dry Skin.

    There are many similar pic's to this one. You set up, take the photo's ... everything looks fine ... the specks are unseen by the naked eye.

    The camera lens, however, picks them up in detail. They're simply small flecks of dry skin ... nothing more.

    Very aggravating if you've just done a specific shoot. Have to remember to use a lens brush on the watch first.
    "watchuseek" ... From a lost indigenous dialect ... meaning ... "Bet you can't buy just one !!!"
