A well made watch with some cool features but also some drawbacksThe main feature of this watch is the GPS capability. This is definitely cool and also quite useful. When you first get the watch, or travel to a different time zone, you can use the GPS Reception to set the correct time zone and acquire the correct time. This is the Time + Position function. If you just need to perform a manual time signal update you can perform a Time Only GPS receive. This is impressively fast, taking a matter of seconds compared to the several minutes usually needed to receive the radio signal from one of the various terrestrial stations. So the GPS is definitely a plus point for the watch.
As for the design, this watch is big, seriously big. Personally I like a big face and this watch certainly has one. In general it is also a good looking watch. Casio’s official photos don’t do it any favours. The blue detailing around the face is far more subtle than the photos suggest. So that’s good. I would also say that the watch feels very well made, crafted from quality materials and feels solid and reassuring. Unfortunately the depth of the case is a bit of a hindrance. At nearly 19mm thick the watch feels very large on your wrist, and won’t fit under a shirt sleeve. I also found it a struggle to get some coat sleeves over it. Maybe it needs to be that deep due to the various mechanisms inside but for me it makes the watch too big and cumbersome.
Another drawback is the subdial on the lower left hand side which displays things like elapsed stopwatch time and remaining countdown time. It is really quite small and can be pretty difficult to read. It is also badly obscured by the main hands at certain times. It’s a shame this subdial isn’t bigger and that Casio haven’t included the “Hand Concealment” function some of their other analogue watches have.
The day of the week markings on the right hand side of the face have a very shiny, reflective background making them difficult to read in many different lighting conditions. This is a very odd design decision. A matt background would have made much more sense.
The final drawback is a personal bug bear of mine, and that is the alignment of the minute hand as it moves around the face. For me, radio controlled watches are all about precision and I find it annoying when the minute hand does not line up correctly with the face markings. It’s certainly not unique to this model of watch. I have had various watches over the years that have all suffered with the same problem including models from Citizen and Breitling. Casio do a better job than most manufacturers of getting the hands to align correctly but the GPW-1000 hands don’t line up at various points around the face and I find it unacceptable for a watch this expensive to suffer from this flaw.
So overall, while the watch has many pleasing features and is an impressive looking watch, it has too many drawbacks for me
