G-Shock GWNQ1000-1A Gulfmaster is 20% off at G-Shock U.S.

G-Shock GWN-Q1000 Gulfmaster with Quad Sensor and Depth Meter

Update: The GWNQ1000-1A is now sold out, but the GWRB1000-1A1 is still on sale at Gshock.com.

The G-Shock GWNQ1000-1A Gulfmaster is currently on sale for $640 (20% off the list price of $800) at Gshock.com. (Purchase links may not appear to visitors outside the U.S.)

The first thing you might be thinking is, “What about the widespread stuck hour hand defect that the GWN-Q1000 was known for?” Well, it should be noted that this is one of the first two GWN-Q1000 models released, and we don’t know if these particular watches being sold have been pre-screened and repaired, or if they were manufactured after the defect was widely resolved. Knowing how widespread and well-known the defect was, it would be hard to imagine that Casio America would sell these if the issue hasn’t been addressed with this particular stock. However, we don’t have enough information to make any conclusions. If it does end up having the defect, your purchase from Gshock.com will be under warranty, and Casio will cover the cost of the repair. (Though the GWN-Q1000 is still active in Japan, the currently active model there is the GWN-Q1000A-1AJF, which was released well after the defect issue was resolved.)

It’s too bad about the GWN-Q1000’s troubled history, as it is one the most unique and advanced G-Shock watches and still highly recommended. Major features include a Quad Sensor (altimeter-barometer, compass, thermometer, and water depth meter), Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 automatic radio timekeeping, tide graph, moon age data, sunrise/sunset time, carbon fiber reinforced case, and sapphire crystal. Like the GWF-D1000 Frogman, the compass sensor on the GWN-Q1000 has automatic horizontal compensation, also known as auto-level correction.
