    GAS-100 Owners Thread

    Picked up a GAS-100B-1A yesterday, the first time I've seen one for sale anywhere (including online):

    Thumbnail review:

    Size is pretty much the same as GA-100; weight a fraction more and overall it feels just a very small step more solid and premium. The hands are nicely legible, the metallised indices slightly less so in all conditions though they do catch the light interestingly from certain angles. Lume on the hands is adequate, no lume on the indices. The lighting has an LED for the ana-bit and backlighting for the LCDs. The dial has a grey sunburst that is much more evident in RL than in the product shots. The overall impression of this particular model is quite muted and under-the-radar - possibly too muted for some - but with a nice hidden little sparkle on the face.

    Man, if they put the module with the lumed indices and neon illuminator in there, I may have to get one.
    When there is doubt, there is no doubt.

    Watches are fun IF you don't take them seriously.

    Not at all embarrassed in this company:

    I must have really lucked out finding one of these - it's still listed as 'coming soon' on the G-shock site, and I can't see any others for sale anywhere, on or offline.

    How are the 3 dials? Im always wary of negative displays. This watch looks so good though!

    I would rate them as "not bad, for negative displays". Quite clear when they catch the light right, otherwise dim. They are much clearer (and larger) than those on my GST-W300 (which I struggle to read even in bright light), and maybe slightly clearer than my GST-100 - which is odd, since the module should be the same - maybe something about the filter or the glass.

    The hands are very legible though, so at least you aren't peering at a negative display to read the time...

    How's that three dials legibility compared to AWGM100 series? Slightly larger in diameter?

    Just curious, the variant I tried on had the most amazing 'green' LED in it, is yours the standard white?

    No idea sorry.

    Kinda surprised there hasn't been more interest in this model - I really like mine. Maybe it is a bit of an understated sleeper and some wilder colours will bring more people round.
