    Any GW-2500-1AER happy owner ??

    How's the watch holding up ?? I want to take a break from full digital but at the same time I don't want to go back to my automatics yet.

    Got one and had zero issues in three months of daily wear...

    I own this close cousin, the GW-2500b, and it has held up to everything I've thrown at it - as tough as any other G in every respect. In fact, for me, it is probably as close to the "perfect G" as I'll ever get!

    Lovely watches guys,thanks for sharing.

    I've heard that lumen is a bit of a hit or miss to some,I've seen some shot around the web and I can't wait to see that misterious LED in the flesh.

    The LED works just fine to read the time in the dark - most of the time you won't need it anyway because of the lumed hands:


    It does even light up the lower LCD - so theoretically you could even use the stopwatch/timer in the dark, at least on the positive display version GW-2500B - don't know if it works on the negative display - never felt the need so far however . It's also very useful as an emergency flashlight - I use it sometimes when working late at night and I don't wanna disturb the Mrs when going to bed .
    I strongly recommend getting the "B" version because of the positive display.

    +1

    this is one my favourite modern/current G-Shock (along with GW9200 and GW6900)

    it got good list of features, analog hand so the current time display in all modes, mode change is "mute" by default, snooze alarm (which none of the full analog G has), can show 3 timezone at the same time, large metal buttons

    and it looks awesome, not many G has grey ion platted metal bezel, and the orange-ish LCD looks great with the case and orange hands.

    Yes,positive display always worked out better for me,unfortunately I don't like the darker bezel on the positive one.I really dig the sharp contrast bewteen black strap and steel bezel of the negative display. Since the first source of informations about time reading will be the hands I may get brave and go for the negative version.
    I wonder if there's any place I can find one in London( I'll be there this weekend) without forcing my wife to take the underground to Spitalfields once again,she would kill me fot that now...

    It shouldn't be that hard to find in regular Casio stockists.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...
