Just received my AWG101 yesterday. My last Gshock purchase was in the 80s of a DW5400 which is now in need of a bezel and band. After finding this forum and reading some posts, I've decided to 'rebuild' the 5400 but I wanted something new as well and the AWG101 caught my eye. Next on the list is a Mudman.
Overall, I like the AWG101 and have familiarized myself with its functions. The only issue is that it does not sync well with the auto calibration. I tried all day yesterday manually and let it try to sync automatically last night but I kept getting an error message. I tried again this morning and for some reason, it sync'd.
There are two other design issues I do have - one is that the three circular windows are blocked when the minute hand rotates over them. I use the stopwatch quite a bit and the display is difficult to read when the hands is over that particular window. Lastly, I see no need for the lower/center window that displays where the time signal is coming from. This could simply be placed in another area or signified in some other manner.
Overall, I'm very pleased with the design and function and hope to get as many years from this watch as I did from my DW5400.
Enjoy the pics.
