Summary: Great watch,it IS a bit larger than a standard "G-shock",but you really have to study it side by side to notice a difference.Band is very strong,buckle is almost indestructible. Really need to pay attention to the instructions for set up,as it is amazing to watch it set itself up after initiating.Persoanlly,the only slight flaws I see are no illumination as in all other G shocks,and the "city set up" is a bit confusing.You have to set the watch either manually,or...
Summary: My $300 dollar watch came in a beat up box. The tin that the watch was enclosed in was all dented up. The original (new) wrapping was missing and tags were removed. The manual had dirt marks all over it and bent pages. The watch its self seems to be amazing. Still returning for a refund, bought another form a different seller. Hopefully this one is not used. Tight watch, crappy seller.
Summary: What can I say, I already love G-shocks because I'm hard on my watches and as far as this one goes, I just wanted something different. Sure, it's a little confusing to set at first but just follow directions. (when it says "hold 'A' for 5 seconds, it's means 5 seconds...not just till you hear the beep) It's great looking, not too big, tough, solar, and just a great piece. The shipping was outstanding as well. Purchased on Saturday, received on Tuesday. You can't beat it.
Summary: This is a great precision watch. When I first opened it and put it on, I did have some difficulty learning how to use the watch, but I soon figured it out in less than 15 minutes using the manual. The watch was thicker than I expected to be(about .6 inch thick), at first I did not like this but after wearing it for weeks, and I have grown fond of it. If the watch were any thinner, the resin case would look cheap and flimsy, any bigger the watch would be obnoxious.
Summary: I'm in love with this watch. It's light, rugged and utterly functional. I'm taking a trip overseas next month and I've already set the world time function to my destination. In seconds, I can swap my home city time with the pre-set world time and the atomic updates will continue across the pond. Too cool. The look is even better in person and I'm having trouble keeping my eyes off my wrist (new toy and all that).
Summary: This watch is really great! Doesn't always receive the signal for the automatic time updates (in MD), but it's still very Accurate. The movements are very precise. I've only had the watch for a week, but have already had a bunch of complimants on how good the watch looks. This watch looks a lot better than the other digital type watches...goes just as well with a suit as it does with jeans and a t-shirt.
Summary: I have had my eye on the new Casio Aviator all analog product line since they came out. The black resin with orange face came first, then the black IP plated stainless steel band with the blue face was released, then a slew of other incarnations of the watch surfaced. By far the GW3000BB is my favorite of them all. For a long time I had been looking for a fully featured, extremely rugged watch that was simple and classic, yet modern. This fits the bill perfectly.
Summary: I work in the British Columbia back-country and needed a rugged all purposed watch that wouldn't fall apart the first time I got jammed between dense brush and hard rock. My old Casio of 15 years served me well by I need something with a brighter display cuz my reading vision went south. I checked a pile of other watches and brands then figured I should stay with Casio as the last one was so rugged and dependable there was no other real choice. It is still running fine.
