Reading the thread form Tribe about his GW-2310 has pushed me into posting about this GW-2300, which I have had for quite some time and has seen a bit of wrist time.
The funny thing is is that the the GW-2300 is exactly the same watch as the GW-2310. There is absolutely no difference whatsoever. Normally the '10' designation indicates 6 band instead of 5 band but the 2300 is already 6 band and the module is the same.
Perhaps they forgot to change the designation when the issued the atomic GW version of the 2300 initially and just reverted subsequently, but who knows. Perhaps someone on here is aware.
This model is known as the GW-2300F 'Fire Package' and was issued with a slightly different 'Fire Package' variant the 2300FP.
I got it because it is a bit of a classic really. Pretty basic but has got the essentials and is wrapped in a nice classic shape and form. It has the classic black and red colour combo, which I love and the red bezel really pops out at you on this making it an attractive look.
The watch is made in Thailand but the buckle is made in Indonesia! A bit odd that.
Casio are still doing this exact same watch currently, with an IP bracelet and the GW-2310BD-4JF designation. It is Japan issue only and costs an eye watering 34K Yen.
I picked mine up from Japan and the total cost, including fees and shipping, to get it to my door was just under $90, which is a heck of a bargain for a solar/atomic 'G'.
You can opt to have a second time zone permanently on display in timekeeping, which some on here might find useful.
It isn't a huge watch, like so many of the other current models but is still a good presence on the wrist and is far more substantial the 5000s. So what do members think about the 2300 / 2310s, a bit classic or a bit meh?
