    While I absolutely see you concern I highly doubt it as this watch is 20bar certified/pressure tested. Now, maybe it can't go much higher than that like many G-shocks, but it will do minimum 200 meters.

    I agree that the dial is too busy, but I like its looks. Specially the blue one.

    And I love the idea of an ana-digi G-shock with ABC feaures.

    Cheers,

    I can't decide whether i like it or not...somewhere i spot coolness (digital numbers, second hand) but indeed it looks messy and overpriced. I don't think it will be an huge success.

    That was my very first thought when I saw the caseback, but if it passed the pressure tests it must be an acceptable design.

    I gotta say that on some level I find this piece very intriguing!! I'm holding out ordering one sight unseen until I see a full review from a fellow forum member, but if its positive, I may have to pick one up one they are finally released!

    The screws are just to stop the caseback falling off (no really!). Pressure on the case and back force the two parts together with the seal trapped between them.

    I don't like this design. The Rangeman, by comparison, was pretty well-designed. This reminds me of one Breitling's busier models. The blue one appears a little too plasticky -- almost counterfeit-like in finish -- looking. A matte finish would have suited it better.

    I'm very interested in this Gulfmaster! It checks a lot of the marks for me. I was nearing purchase of a green Aviator GWA-1100 for the analog style and compass, but with this Gulfmaster packing ABC + tides + dual LEDs for both LCD and analog hands, I'm going to wait for a Gulfmaster July/August!

    Also awaiting the critical reviews of members of the forum! Your collective discussions and comments and real life pics/experiences are highly valued! Thank you in advance.

    The blue bezel color way is my favorite so far. Hoping for a module setup, even though we know the countdown timer is compromised to 60minutes. Wonder also if the LCD matrix display shows barometer / altitude / tide trends.

    As we wait for the release of the module 5371 manual....

    Aloha,
    James

    I really hope this isn't a new design direction for G-Shocks, not digging it at all. Doesn't look like a Casio, doesn't look like a G-Shock, what the heck is it?
