The GW2310-1 will retire my still functional Casio solar G shock G-2310D-8DR, which is no longer available. This new watch should endure just as much abuse as my first. This watch has simple and convenient features that have made this model a favorite, second to none. You will definitely enjoy!
Interesting time line of events: I purchased my G-2310D-8DR on a secured line in the foothills of Afghanistan in 2002. The watch was then shipped to a Forward Operating Base in southern Afghanistan. The G-2310D-8DR held up to many harsh conditions in Afghanistan and Iraq: Combat Operations, Extreme Heat, Extreme Cold, High Altitudes and Water. For the curious, depths of water did not exceed 4 meters.
There are a few differences between my old model versus the new. The GW2310-1 is atomic, has a resin band, no year display and does not have a data bank. I will definitely miss the stainless steel band as I am certain the resin band will be the first thing to fail. My only other solution is a custom made 550 paracord band.
