    Mine came in yesterday. It’ll easily take place as my go to casual piece. My other gshock will be used for playing in rain puddles and building sandcastles

    Really like the GA2100-1A1, wish I'd picked up one for my brother for a Christmas gift.

    What's the best site that doesn't rhyme with shmodinky to get on a waitlist?

    they had a whole bunch of the 1A1's at my local Macys today. If you want to ask your grandma to use her macys card, its eligible for another 25% off. they only list the red one on their website:

    I was going to wait a month or two before following up on this, but after two weeks I feel ready to make a pronouncement that the Speedy Pro is pretty damn perfect.

    For a 42mm watch (48mm height) it wears well and not as big as I had feared, even after trying it on. I was also worried it would be heavier, being a wider bracelet and heavier clasp. Both fears were unfounded.

    I was also worried about the thickness claims and having issue catching on cuffs. This hasn’t been a problem at all. In fact, I try to leave it sticking out to admire it, but it keeps sliding under the cuff. It wears great.

    It’s also looks great on the bracelet, leather strap, Nato - take your pick. Thing is a chameleon that can wear with any outfit.

    The only issues I have are small ones:
    1. The bracelet sizing leaves me in-between being too loose and too tight. An adjustable clasp would be great and I might look into buying one.
    2. Winding it isn’t the easiest, but it’s not difficult. I’ll live.

    Overall, it’s a 9.5/10 and would buy again. Very pleased.

    I don't even recognize that reference.

    That's what I was thinking but the dial looks too dark.

    Farer released a new line of pilot’s watches today. I’m a fanboy (who needs to buy something from them) and really like these, especially for under $1K:
