    G-Shock Gulfmaster GWN-1000: first photos in person

    Hi, pals,

    I'm not sure if this has been posted before, but ZonaCasio (Zona Casio) has published photos of Gulfmaster.

    Full article (in spanish) here.

    I need an ABC G-Shock badly, but Rangeman and Gulfmaster are too pricey, and since I lost my job I am totally broken. :(

    Cheers,

    G.

    Nice pics. Looks a little better in person (although bloo). Still not (yet) for me.

    Thanks for sharing :)

    The Gulfmaster is still looking bit on the busy side for me (I think it's the very prominent numbers splashed all over the bezel), but I'd be interested to see it in action with all its sensors. By the looks of the parts I'd expect it to have that 'premium quality' feel to it just like the Rangeman... The other thing is I'm not convinced that metal keepers is the way to go - I'd like to see more CF style keepers :)

    It does look better than the catalog photos suggest. I think the black one with the dark blue bezel looks best. Still, it is too large, too busy, too confusing, and too expensive for me. I will sit this one out

    I just cannot get pass the fact that the markers are a total Rolex rip-off.

    Not impressed. Looks like a Citizen and Rolex lovechild. And not in a good way.

    Don't lots of brands use those type of markers though? I agree they could have come up with something more original. I especially don't like how the 5hr and 7hr dots are carved out to make room for the digital display.

    I am still neutral on the overall design but I won't be surprised if Casio has made a deliberate attempt to make the Gulfmaster GWN-1000 as 'tool-like' as possible.

    Having said that, it seems to me the 4 back screws are too concentrated along the vertical (12 o'clock to 6 o'clock) axis and MAY negatively impact the water resistance at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions. Does anyone else feel the same?

    Ditto, it looks very odd to me as well.

    Casio QC: "We have to rejects some markers because they are nicked on one side"

    Casio Finance: "No worries, we can carve them up and use them as the 5hr and 7hr dots"

    Casio Marketing: "Perfect, we'll have a unique design"
