    Hi Joseph68,

    I don't own this model, but have many of Atomic/Solars; Great watches; I have had no problems; This model looks like powered by the "CTL1616" battery, which has had some issues; myself I have a GW-300 with many years of use and no problems, hope this helps.

    Below is a site with the specs.

    i handled one some time ago

    it looks smaller than say a MTG910

    and the full metal bezel is a nice touch

    I've heard that it's small but apart from that, It's a G-Shock so quality as always

    I am also thinking of buying a GW-600/610. I emailed Mr Higuchi and Seiya asking about the Titanium Japan model but neither have replied. The US model is just $100 but it is steel. I hear this watch is smaller and that is what I am looking for. I need something to slip under a dress shirt. My GW-900 and GW-510 are a bit bulky. I just love being able to grab a watch and it is perfectly sync'd all the time. I love the mechanics of an automatic swiss watch but I truely hate having to set them all the time if I don;t wear one. G-shocks just take abuse so well!
