    Another Polygon In Da House! Basic But Nice!

    As much as i love my new yellow rasta polygon, the reverse display did seem a mite more difficult for me to read. So I went a hunting for the basic model with a clear display.

    I saw a few gold ones but damn, it seemed that the regular 1VDR are rarer than a Frogman. But lo and behold, at a shop in Jurong Point, I finally saw one and holy cow, I must say this is one hell of an underated model. I couldn't get it for lower than SG$75 but I bought it anyway because I SWEAR, this model with the brushed aluminium lining on the crystal looks really good. I love the clear LCD to death, so much easier to read for old eyes like mine. Here are some modem burning pics:

    Thanks for looking and I now swear that this is my last purchase for the month, ha ha ha (didn't I say that yesterday???)

    I owned a regular model like that with a neg display but flipped it, had I had the regular display, I may still have it. Nice catches!

    That's my favourite, but I couldn't find one.

    Yes, it's strange, I figured this model wouldn't be popular, didn't think it would be so hard to get one locally. Lexxorcist, there is only one listed on the bay, here:

    Very nice indeed!

    I'm beginning to favor the less bulky G-shocks.

    Cheers, that's quite tempting, but I ended up with a green and black reverse display one (which I got incredibly cheap). I'd much rather have this basic one, but funds won't allow anymore duplicates... at least for a while.

    I did the same thing with the referee timer - saw a reverse display one cheap and thought 'ooh that looks cool' - then saw how much better the normal display one was, and bought that too.

    Hopefully I'll be able to find one after Christmas when I have more funds. These polygons look and feel much better in person than in photos.

    Hi GB2G,

    Nice score. No G-Shock T-Shirt with it per chance? I like the normal display. It's much clearer than the negative version.

    Cheers,

    Nice find Gameboy, I still like the reverse polygon, it is not as bad as the reverse mudman.

    I want the tough solar polygon in black, that would be the ultimate, but none available here.

    Ahh, the regular polygon, nice huh! I wear mine about twice a week, very comfy. Once you start wearing this to work, you will gravitate towards it every morning!!!

    Congrats, Gameboy!

    Well done, GB2G

    Agree it's not common here... perhaps all swiped by G enthusiasts
