    Watches are fun IF you don't take them seriously.

    First impressions.
    I'm used to my vintage 1986 Aqualand.
    But this one is massive and thick.
    Thick and large.

    High quality. The polyurethane is omnipresent but the glass and the bezel are shiny. The bezel got a deep dark shining finish sandwiched between the mat plastic and the sapphire crystal. This is the only bling bling of this watch.
    Ten years ago I used the two metal keepers from my Aqualand's band on my Raysman G-Shock.
    (It was easy to adjust them just using a leatherman...)
    Now I see that Casio is doing the same: this Aviator got a metal keeper !
    Great upgrade compared to my GW2500 with thick tedious keeper (it get caught in everything)...

    The lume seems excellent as far as I have tested it. I do love lumed numbers especially 12 and 6.

    I have notice that the stopwatch and the timer can be started without to wait for the hands to get in position as soon as the seonc hand is vertical.
    It was the same feature on my GW2000.

    My regrets so far, as I knew the module before pulling the trigger on this one are:
    I do not mind about 1/20th of seconds. I will never use it. Why did Casio not built a 24 hours stopwatch ? I like to time my flights ( as a passenger !).
    The same for the timer using the little hand at 12 o clock. It would be so easy to have a 24 hours timer.
    It was was already implemented on the 2009's GW2000 modules....
    Why no beep when triggering the stopwatch and the timer ? To much energy consuming ?

    Now:
    I love the beeps when the crown is pulled. I love the double beep when the C button is long pressed and the watch returns to Time keeping.
    I love the beep when the compass button is pushed.
    I really love how easy it is to read in various light condition.

    A LED with UV would have been the cheerry on the cake.

    Now I love the hands. They are pointy but not thick as on the GW-A1000. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder...
    My two cents.

    So far I love that watch but I got that feeling it will grow on me.

    FYI information I got it from Tiptop in Japan. Great service.
    I have paid my customs and it is still a great bargain.

    So i'm happy. And like many others here, I got much to much watches for two wrists.... Wish I was an octopus.

    (More pics and comparaison to come as fast as I figure how Tapatalk 4.0 is working... So sorry for the double posts, if any...)
