    40's gshock!

    When watching an edition of tv prog Antiques Roadshow earlier ,an antique Japanese tin robot was featured . My immediate thought was its a walking gshock and prompted me to look thru the internet and just a few random selections of robot toys from the 40's and 50'sName:  tal19.jpg

    Funny there, shameless. Living up to your name, eh?

    They definitely do put some 40's like color schemes together for various G-Shock models, that's for sure. I agree, the DW-5900 has a kind of retro robot look about it, the way the dial is designed. That would be cool if someone put together a robot sculpture out of G-Shock parts. Kind of like THIS. Definitely do-able.

    the post you refer to is brilliant and great credit to that OP , i did not think for one moment it would have been an original idea , just new to me! MERRY XMAS TO ALL BY THE WAY
