    Put the GW-3000B to the test

    Just got back from the centrifuge this week and wore my new GW-3000B in there, it only went up to 7.5G's but the watch was a lot more comfortable in there than I was.

    That is one fine timepiece. Is the centrifuge fun? I've always imagined it would be, up to a point. I also wish I could take a flight in a jet fighter plane, which must surely be a rush.

    Yeah they are "rated" to 13-14G right while maintaining proper hand position? There are not many people I'm going to assume that can withstand 14G. 8-9G with a G-suit looks like (from my armchair google research) is about the limit.

    I do really like my 3500B but it will never likely never see more G-force then is sustained from dropping it on the floor!

    Thanks for the comments, a lot of the dudes around the squadron have complimented it. Most of them wear G-Shocks from the PX. Without a doubt, the most common watch I see amongst the military are G's. Its taken over as my flying watch.

    I just ordered a GW-3000B because I like the all analogue features.

    I also have a GS 1300, but I like the bigger size of the GW-3000. The GS1300 will be a more sedate and ‘dress up’ version of the analogue Casio.

    FongaBonga, nice to know about the GW-3000B holding up in a real G test.

    Are you in flight school? Do you know other pilots who wear this model G?

    Xevious, No, I finished flight school a few years ago. As far as other pilots wearing this watch, 4 other guys in my squadron are putting in a small buy for the watch after seeing mine.
