    Another newbie - with a new G-Shock!

    Hello everyone,

    I've been lurking in the forums here for a while and have read the posts in the G-Shock forum with much interest. I have always loved the G-Shock concept and know first-hand how they laugh off abuse, but never added to the only one I own (a G2900 bought 6 or 7 years ago and still going strong) because big black digital watches don't generally match with what I wear and I've always been a sucker for mechanicals. However, I was walking past a jewellers at the weekend and saw that they had recieved a whole new set of G-Shock models... I couldn't help but take a look at the new Atomic Solar Mudman and GW-002 models (so functional, so clever) and once I was inside I saw this new AWG-101:





    In my defence, I held out almost a full 24 hours before it ended up on my wrist:



    I am *really* loving this stealthy G-Shock. The analogue dial with inverse LCD 'subdials' and dark grey metal bezel make it visually quite unobtrusive but it's very nicely detailed when you look closer. I haven't captured it in the Q&D photos but that solar-panel surface dial reflects the light in a really nice way and the applied indices and different-coloured hands are very pleasing. It's way more 'wearable' than a regular G (for me at least) and packs an unbelievable amount of technology into it's shock and water-resistant case: Solar-powered, syncs with 5 different atomic clocks world-wide, cool orange LED dial lighting, world time, battery meter, timer/stopwatch and alarms... Reading through the manual (took me a while) made me realise what technical marvels these Casios really are - but you guys knew that already of course!

    Greetings,
    Chris.

    One downsize of this model is the Alarm since it got only one Daily Alarm with 10 sec preset alarming sound....but overall it's a great watch w/ many nice features.
