    any advantages of a "foxfire" g-shock

    i saw there are dw-5600e and dw-6900 offered from japan with the writing "foxfire" instead of "illuminator" on the display. see pics. now i wonder if there is any technical or quality difference? i mean the watches are more expensive, thats all i can see as difference.

    i think Foxfire is a translation of Illuminator, so that would be the only difference, i actually prefer the word Foxfire.

    Hi Fonklover,

    Actually there were Fox Fire models released in Europe (at least in Germany and Austria). I think you know the DW-6900H (totenkopf model) and DW-6630 models that are on eBay quite often (a few years back you always could find a dozen of each of them on the Geman eBay).



    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Bridger2, a forum member, recently posted in this thread the best explanation I've read about Foxfire:

    I like Foxfire more than Illuminator, too.

    hi sjors,
    yes i know that yellow model, and they are also quite often on ebay nowadays, just some days ago i was outbit, it went for less than 15 euro, and it even was within my city to pick it up

    but what i would do is, take the foxfire watch and put on the regular black bezel and band. somehow that foxfire sounds cooler than illuminator.

    "FOX FIRE" sound meaner, badder compared to the sissy sounding "Illuminator"...just my two cents!

    Sorry, but everytime I see 'Fox Fire', I think of the web browser 'Firefox' .

    So, I prefer 'Illuminator'.

    Re: any advantages of a "foxfire" g-shock

    Fox Fire just sounds meaningless to me, so I prefer Illuminator. Actually, I'd prefer nothing at all...
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...
