    Newbie thinking about a G-1000D-1AER

    Hi all, I'm an existing member of the Omega forum on WUS but a complete newbie to the world of G-Shock. I've seen a watch that's caught my eye:
    http://www.johnlewis.com/230475808/Product.aspx
    I really like the look, especially as I prefer an analogue watch to a digital one.
    Can anybody tell me more about this watch? Also, what is the strap made from - resin/plastic or metal?
    Thanks.

    PS - Just found it on Amazon for £89 (£117 in the John Lewis link above)

    My neighbor has this watch. He is not a collector, but sais it is the best watch he has ever owned. He works outside doing construction work and his watch looks great for the abuse it takes. Go for it!

    I have a G-1000D too and it's a nice watch. But here is what I don't like about this watch
    -> lumination: weak like almost all analog Gs.
    -> the red second hand is a function hand and stands still on the 12 o'clock position while in ordinary time keeping mode. The second hand is actually the little one the 9 o'clock dial.
    -> redundant 24h dial

    Good point, but I've had analogue watches for years so I'm used to this. Obviously will never be as bright as an integrated light but I'd be happy enough.
    -> the red second hand is a function hand and stands still on the 12 o'clock position while in ordinary time keeping mode. The second hand is actually the little one the 9 o'clock dial.
    This is typical of an analogue chronograph, so I'm used to this. To be honest I actually think it's kinda cool to have the seconds on a small sub-dial while the large hand is stationery. Maybe I'm weird.
    -> redundant 24h dial.
    Does it measure hours for the stopwatch? Or have something to do with the alarm i.e. indicating am/pm?

    Thanks again.

    I like these and just ordered the all black G1000H the price was very good on amazon. its not atomic but my analog casio is very accurate and I guess I will change some batteries, I like the look of these better than the Giez and the 100 dollar savings will buy lots of batteries and maybe another G

    the 3 o'clock 24h dial shows
    in normal time keeping: nothing
    in world time: the time zone you want
    in stopwatch mode: the minutes and hours
    in alarm mode: the alarm time

    Therefore the 9 o'clock dial is pretty useless to me aside from setting the watch the first time but this could be done with a little indicator on a subdial (like the Giez I guess).
