My GW1701D-1AVDR finally arrived yesterday. After having the bracelet re-sized, it wears quite comfortably on my wrist. I must say that this Ana-digi version is one of the best-looking. The case looks quite streamlined with clean lines yet still looks rugged in a certain way. The slate gray of the solar panel with the 'criss-cross' pattern, 3 sub-dials and the white skeleton hands make the watch quite striking in its looks too. One pleasant surprise for me was when setting the the digital time, the analog hands will automatically align the hands to the same time as on the digital. If memory serves me correct, the older Ana-digi G Shocks did not do so and it was not easy to set them to the same time.
When my wife so saw it she was quite taken by it ...so this evening off we went to see if we could find a compatible Baby G. We were successful and came off purchasing a G-101-1AVMDS. Not identical but with similar styling cues. The mrs was so happy to have a matching rugged yet feminine little timepiece!:-D Lee
