    Quick question on two under-rated Gs: gw2310 vs gwm500/530

    Just got a 2310 and like it. Had gwm500 a long time ago. Was surprised to find the specs on paper actually suggests gwm500/530 is slightly thicker than 2310, and maybe longer lug to lug too? Has anyone have both and could share how the two compare size wise? Thanks.

    Both are underrated in my opinion and wonderful alternative to squares, in some aspects even better.

    Was also surprised to see 2310 strap actually uses spring bars instead of screws and is compatible to 5610.

    Great collection! I went back and forth for quite a while and decided on the positive display. Man do I love the negative version! Only concern is legibility.

    yeah, 2300/2310 is underrated, however, I understand why, practically, I do not like wearing my 2300's for work due to its bulkiness, and somewhat busy interface... whereas the square is the opposite

    I tend to agree. If it were thinner even for a little bit, I would have gotten it much earlier :)

    I disagree with the busy face. I think it’s perfectly functional, more so than a square. For instance it shows day of the week in three letters not two. It also has the capability to show dual time at the same time which is fantastic. Also the layout is better than gwm500/530 because the three eyes on gwm500 is not all functional, whereas 2310 layout has nothing I don’t need.

    The GW-2310-1 was my first G. I still like the size and functionality.

    Both are nice watches

    The GWM-5XX series is a bit thicker then the GW2310 but because of its screw type strap(as opposed to springbars) it feels, wears and looks thinner. The GW-500(multiband 5 version) and the GWM-5XX models are some of the most comfortable wearing G-Shocks out there. For me it is a toss up between the GWM-5XX and the AWG-1XX/AWGM-1XX watches
