Mine appears to be in new condition and everything seems to work (including the Auto EL and the Flash Alert LEDs). The only thing I haven't tested yet is the accuracy, but I've set it to atomic time so I can see how it holds up over the next few days. It's definitely on the smaller side, which is fine when I don't want to wear one of my larger Gs. Also, I know some folks don't like the stainless light button and bezel insert, but I like it.

    My G-7700-1 has a heartbeat that's too fast. In one day it's already fast by about 0.5 second (15 seconds/month, which is right at the limit of the specs). At some point I'll open it up and adjust its pacemaker (trimmer) to improve its accuracy. Of the five non-atomic Gs that I've bought, two were fast 15 seconds/month out of the box (G-7900A-4 and this one), and one was fast 10 seconds per month (GD-350-1B). I trimmed the G-7900A-4 to about 5-6 seconds fast per month, and the GD-350-1B to less than 1 second fast per month.

    The G-7700-1 has a 1/1000 second stopwatch. If it's fast 0.5 second per day, this means the stopwatch is fast 1/1000 second about every three minutes. I'm not sure why they even offer a 1/1000 second stopwatch, but at least two of my Gs have one.

    I already posted this elsewhere, but check your local Targets. I got a 5600 today on clearance. I know I'm not the first to find this deal lately.

    I'm jealous, went to two targets and both had regular prices for all g shocks.

    I got lucky. I went there to pick up a Timex Scout (which I also bought 😁), and I found the G hiding all by itself behind a bunch of other Timexes. Was the only Casio on that side of the rack. Destiny.

    The accuracy of my G-7700-1 improved from the initial +0.5 second per day (+15 seconds per month) to about +0.33 second per day (+10 seconds per month) over the first couple of weeks. I decided to leave the trimmer alone for the time being.

    Amazon has the PRW-3000-1 for $151.98 today. It was $189.99 on Oct 28, so this seems like a good deal.

    Thanks! Tempting. Fingers crossed a good deal for one of the 3100 models comes soon.
