    GWG-1000 vs GMW-B5000 vs GPR-B1000

    Ok gentleman. Out of the three listed which would you choose if you could only have one. Lets set price aside and focus on the other merits and disadvantages of the each watch. I am newish to the G-Shock world and am wanting something new. I have narrowed it down to these three.

    Thanks in advance

    Gwg I donít like because of the electronic crown, the two other are completely different, a dress watch and a monster hiking watch, I have both for the right occasion.

    GWG-1000 vs GMW-B5000 vs GPR-B1000

    I own two of the three, GWG-1000 and GPR-B1000.

    I find that I donít really use all the features of either all that often. The only functions I actually need from a watch on a regular basis are at work (police officer on nights) to time 30 seconds for field sobriety testing, 15 minute countdown timer for breath tests and compass. For those functions, GWG-1000 is way better than GPR-B1000. On the GWG-1000, I can hit the watch face with a flashlight for a few seconds to charge up the lume. After that, I can use the compass or time 30 seconds off the second hand without having to push a light button (which interrupts compass function) or shine a flashlight on my watch. GWG is just easier to use for the functions I actually need. If I had to choose just one, it would be GWG. Your needs may be different.

    Despite all that, I wear the GPR to work more often than the GWG. I just like it.

    I donít own GMW-5000. The squares just donít appeal to me.

    Since you started a thread stating you wanted the GPR go with that.

    Don't like squares, GWG-1000 is big, GPR-B1000 is huge!

    GWG the only one I would, and have, own(ed).

    I own them all. All are great watches but of course have their merits as well as disadvantages.

    Between the GWG and GPR, the GWG has a somewhat older and MUCH less feature-packed module than the GPR. It does have a screw-down crown which is totally different from the GPR's rotary crown. In that sense the GPR is much faster for crown use than the GWG IF you need to use the GWG's crown.

    But I think you said you were interested mainly in looks. Both of those are great looking watches, but the GPR's cool outer solar panel and display, plus the overall design of the watch give it an even cooler look than the GWG IMO. Just keep in mind the GPR is VERY large - even makes the GWG seem 'normal-sized.' (and the GWG is large also)

    I haven't mentioned the square yet because....if you are seriously considering the GMW-B5000 vs. the GPR-B1000, then you might want to slow down and consider what you REALLY want in a watch (and research your possible choices heavily - both specs and threads on here) because those two are as different as night and day on the wrist. I mean, really - the size difference between them is just ridiculous. IMO - narrow down size and "use cases" first (i.e., how/where do you expect to wear the watch). Functions/features can come later. But SIZE is the first and foremost consideration between those two watches.

    My pick would be the GPR-B1000. (but truthfully the GMW square is more versatile and can be worn easily in many more situations - just not the ideal outdoor/hiking watch)

    The GMW because it is much more a daily watch
