Hi all, I finally got hold of my intended daily beater for work, the GW-2310FB-1CR. I love huge Gs but they won't fit in the sleeves of my shirt. Bought a GDF-100-1B and sold it off because it's too big. I like the look of this, it's very stealthy, and small enough to fit nicely under the sleeve. And this is my first solar + atomic G. But now I have 2 questions about the watch.
1) My bezel material is more plastic than resin. Can any GW-2310 owners shed some light on this..? It's like on the GAs and GDs you can immediately feel that the bezel and resin strap are of the same material. But this watch, the bezel is definitely 100% not the same as the comfortable resin. It feels more like cheap plastic. It looks perfect but just really doesn't feel right. Did I bought a watch where somehow the seller swapped the bezel, or for this model the bezel is made of this plastic-feel material..?
2) I know my home city, SIN doesn't allow any manual or auto sync. But since it's the same GMT as HKG, I can set it as HKG and try to receive auto syncs and enable the manual sync function (there have been cases of Gs getting synced in SIN). But I travel quite a lot so let's say I get to New York. Will the watch still be able to sync if my home city is still set to HKG? Because I rather keep my home-city and toggle the world time, than to change the home city every single time I travel abroad.
Some photos for deliberation on the bezel (note the circles on the bezel around the caseback. You get these like usually on plastic products during manufacturing):
I have a feeling this is the way the bezel is. Honestly, it doesn't matter to me because I'm intending it as a beater and I actually can't wait for it to get banged up. But the thing is it's disappointing if this is the actual bezel material. It absolutely feels like cheap and light plastic and has no elasticity like the resin. I really wanna know if Casio did such an arse thing to save $$.
