    Opinion: GWA1100 or GWA1000

    I got a message asking for my opinion of the two models. Unfortunately, his mailbox is full. So I'll reply it in the forum hoping others will jam in.

    Question from a member:
    Hello I saw in a recent post that you have both of these models. If you don't mind me asking I was wondering which one you liked better? I've been eyeballing both of these models. I think I like the A1100 a little more but it's about $200 more so the A1000 is a viable option. Thanks.

    If you like the 1100 style, then go for it. The module is improved over 1000 likes fast hand moving during the setting that can go both cw and ccw direction. 1000 can go fast only in cw direction. 1100 has the lume on the second hand. Also it has the sapphire crystal and easier to use crown with the texture. And the deal for me is the compass. I never use the temperature reading on 1000.

    I like both in a different way. I like the bold look big hands and hour marks of 1000. But sometimes, I want the tool look of 1100. So both get equal wrist time depending on my want of that day.

    Thanks for the input, I think I'm going to go for the A1100 for some of the reasons stated such as the "tool" look, sapphire crystal, and compass. By the way I'll go clean out my mailbox :).

    I kinda had this ordeal with the decision making, so I bought the A1100 (red) last month, now I have the A1000FC (all blue one) on the way

    The 1100 is much nicer IMHO. Add Sapphire crystal, better module, compass... not a difficult decision.
    Watches are fun IF you don't take them seriously.
    Too many watches for my signature... this is my SOTC thread on f71

    I think i have decided on the GWA-1000.

    i love the look of the original 1A, but i am coming round to the FC models. I am not so sure about the stealth models FC and FC 2A, only from the pictures that i can only make opinion but it seems dark and may be difficult to read hands.

    I am liking the 3A and 5A FC new models.

    Need to make decision, i did think about just getting the standard and upgrading to the composite bracelet!

    decisions decision......

    I have the FC-5A that I did a "washer" swap on to give it a little more orange. The brown resin was a little strange to my eye at first and then REALLY grew on me. I like it a lot.

    I then impulse bought an FC-1A4. I haven't worn it yet as I am trying to decide if I just want to resell it, or modify it a bit. Out of the box It seems like the bezel lettering should be orange/coral to match the boldness of the dial. Here they are for your consideration:
