    Exclamation French Military Casio G Shock DW-8400

    Just received 3 french military Casio G Shock from the Marine Nationale / Cofusco.

    Two are the "traditionnal" DW-9000 watches (one from Toulon arsenal : TN 1999, and one from Lorient : L - 98 / 54) but the third one is a DW 8400.

    This is the fisrt issued DW 8400 that I know : Japan made with module 1289, issued in 1998.

    The military marking from Lorient (L - 98 / 24) appears to be really engraved and not laser engraved as on the DW 9000.

    Enjoy !!

    Nice, but I'm a little surprised the French would stand for English written all over their official military tools. If I recall, "Wednesday" is "Mercredi" in French, which would be 'ME' rather the 'WE.'
