so, i've had my Sky Cockpit about a week now and thought i'd offer some initial impressions.
for a long time i've been wanting an all-analog G. i tried the AWG-100, but quickly discovered that i don't care for ani-digi mix and i found the hands too thin.
-very legible, the orange on black color scheme works very well.
-not to cluttered, you can tell the time just fine without having to tune out the subdials.
-the limited 24 minute chrono has not hampered any timing needs thus far. given the "air race" theme of the watch, 24 minutes is a -long- time for such endeavors.
-good sync'er. i live in upstate NY, USA and it has not failed to sync yet. it sits on a nightstand at night, about one foot away from an air conditioner.
-the domed crystal seems quite thick, and i'm one of those strange fellows that enjoys some distortion at low angles.
-band is wide and comfortable. not as velvety/soft as my Riseman, but the keeper doesn't move around and it has my preferred double tang buckle.
-lume is just "fair". on par with my Citizen NY0040. i can't see why some sort of backlight couldn't have been integrated.
-while the alarm is fine, i really miss an hourly chime.
overall, not too much to complain about. and all analog chrono with the G-Shock heritage. and watching the hands/dials spin about madly when switching modes is pretty addicting.
