    Picture New GL-7000RF arrived!

    New beauty arrived in the mail Saturday. Traded FreeDiver for one of mine so a big thanks to him for this beauty. Looks a lot like a 2300/2310 with a metal casing and bracelet. Been thinking about getting one of the black MTG models one of these days but I may not need to now. Pretty comfortable and even feels a little lighter than my MTG-900 does.

    Hi Brian,

    Great watch. Let me guess where you trade it with It begins with a D and end with a 4? I alsways wondered why the GL-7000's look bigger than the G-2300, while it actually has the same case dimensions. I guess the shiney metal of the rim makes it appear bigger.

    Wear in good health

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    I see what you mean about the silver ring making it look bigger than a G-2300 or G-2310. But when you put them together it actually looks almost a little smaller compared to the others. I think the resin casings are a bit bigger.

    And you're right about the D and the 4 .

    Hi Brian

    I really love the look of that GL7000RF. Very, very impressive!

    Do you like the metal bracelet and the clasp / locking mechanism? Does it work OK? I haven't had any experience with this kind of bracelet yet...

    I wonder if a "normal" resin band could fit on this watch...

    Greetings,
    Rasmus

    Hi Brain,

    I am amazed about your pictures. It looks indeed smaller than the G-2300 when side to side! I once compared mine (mine are SS). I think I have to look again

    Cheers,

    Hi Sjors

    Yes it really does look much smaller in his pictures.

    We discussed this earlier in September last year. You even took some comparison pictures:

    Hi Rasmus,

    I see, yep. I didnt knew this model was among them (nope, I din't forget I took those pictures for you). If you look it even seems that the right 7000 is bigger than the left one. I believe it's all optical illusion (Something to do with mirror effects I guess, make everything appear bigger due to reflections etc).

    Well, the main important thing is that the watch looks great. In such cases size doesn't matter much, as long as it isn't minuscule, of course.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    I absolutely agree with you, Sjors...! It looks very cool, and then it has one of the best Casio-modules as well. A pretty good combination...

    Well, I'm off to bed now. Have a nice evening!

    Hi Rasmus,

    It's indeed getting late here too. Some guys are uploading tons of music right now, but after that I go to bed too. Tomorrow a long day with students working on video projects.

    Good night!
