    Thanks for the kind word OdoN, glad you like them. There's at least 2 or 3 squares out there for just about everyone to collect!

    Re: Fergfour: Squared Away

    Got some parts in the mail today, some bullbars and a GW5000 strap which is nice and soft as you all know.

    I wanted to try the 2-tone look on my DW5025B Rising White, so swapped out the white strap, buckle too since the hardware is gold, kept white keeper for contrast, popped on the black bars:

    I was thinking of trying a couple different things. A black bezel with some red lettering, with white band with a black keeper. Or the white bezel, with/without red lettering, with one of those 5600HR black and red straps maybe with a white keeper.

    Re: Fergfour: Squared Away

    Got tired of having 3 separate cases so I picked up a cheap Songmics case with an acrylic top. Thought it'd be nice to view them without opening the case, and the solars could charge as well. Went with 24 slots as an incentive to limit the collection to that, we'll see. I have one in the mail which leaves one more spot. I'll have to save it for something special.

    Re: Fergfour: Squared Away

    Here's one I'm very excited about, the DW5600VTSSK Shinsengumi. You can google Shinsengumi for more info but it was a special police force similar to/related to the shogun. I didn't know this watch existed until recently and as fate would have it was lucky enough to locate one on a Japanese auction site. From the very few posts I've been able to find it's a Japanese only model that was part of the 25th anniversary series, was made in collaboration with a Historical society/museum in Japan, and there were 1000 made which were sold only at that museum. Without further adieu:

    The packaging is a glossy black cardboard and came with the outer protective box, tag, instructions, and a card with some of the Shinsengumi info. there was an old WUS post years ago where someone had translated it:

    The strap is a deep matte black with a glossy red stylized mountain pattern, the kanji symbol for sincerity, and the buckle from Japan:

    The caseback has the Eric Haze 25th logo. The model number does not have "25" in it like some other 5625's which partly explains why it never came up while I was searching for other anniversary models:

    The face has a deep black border with red font, the shin, seng, and gumi symbols (rough translation special chosen elite), as well as the mountain pattern. The display is about the same color as a GW5000 but it has more of a sparkle to it as opposed to flat gray if you know what I mean. The only other squares I have with this kind of display are the 20th anniversary and the older 5600FL's:

    The backlight is standard blue/green but it has the kanji symbol for sincerity:

    Here's an updated picture of the state of my collection.

    The model numbers are as follows, an * means it's been customized in some way.
    Top row: DW5600FL*, G5600CC*, GWM5630E*,GWM5625E*, DW5600VTSSK, DW5600EH*, GWM5630A, GWM5610MR
    Middle row: G5600CC*, DW5600FL*, DW5600FL*, DW5600RE*, DW5600GF*, DW5600GM*, DW5025B*, DW5600GM*
    Bottom row: DW5000SP, DW5025SP, DW5030C, DW5025D, GW5000, DW5030D, GWM5630D, GWM5600A
    Since there's no room for any more in the case, I rotate one out each day, today it's a DW5600CG* with lavender filter and combi:

    Re: Fergfour: Squared Away

    The latest in the collection, the DW5000BL. I often say this when I get a new G, but this one really is special. It's a rare beast and in NOS condition. Whoever owned it kept it tucked away. The combination of the metal case and metal bracelet makes it the heftiest square I own, around twice as heavy as a GW5000!

    Re: Fergfour: Squared Away

    Great collection especially the Shinsengumi I think it is the best and the coolest yet in the G Shock world.

    I have a question because I am new to G Shocks. So these limited editions that Casio produce only comes in regular modules that is without Solar Storage and Radio Control?

    Thanks
