    Anyone seen this in the flesh yet?

    I was browsing the incoming pages on G-shock UK last night and saw a couple of new squares listed, one caught my interest as I do not have a g-lide model yet.
    GLX-5600VH-1ER VINTAGE HAWAII


    Now the product code (1) suggests a black resin case/band, but the description suggests a vintage/faded base and it looks like it may be a charcoal grey instead of the usual black.
    Can anyone confirm either way?

    Re: Anyone seen this in the flesh yet?

    Seen this and the article says the models are black and red, I know my eyes aren’t young anymore, but they definitely look grey and pink, so my question remains “has Casio released these in aged/faded colours that make black look like grey and red look like pink”

    Regardless, if I can get confirmation that the model I want is grey I will definitely look at buying it, if it’s black, chances are I’ll leave it.

    Don’t know why Casio couldn’t use the designations for grey and pink respectively instead of causing confusion.

    Only thing is the images all seem to be the same and if the colour is off on those it looks like I have been misled by those

    My bad, I posted too quickly. I was speaking about the photo(shop ?) on the page

    Thanks for the effort finding those - not sure if it has cleared up my confusion as I am still not convinced what colour this watch is.
    Will have to see what G-shocks returns policy is and have a gamble on whether I get a grey watch or black!

    Cheers

    Definitely seems like a gray color in this photo from instagram:

    It's obviously not the usual black color and looks lighter or gray. Casio-intl refers to it as "Retro 90's surf fashion faded base colors ..." but doesn't mention the specific colors.
    Usually the color gray is denoted by an 8 at the end of the model number, which is why I went with black for the article since it is the GLX-5600VH-1.

    Don't always trust the official Casio photos!

    I think it's hard to truly convey the actual colours in a picture. For example, I recently bought the new GA-2000E-4ER which in all of the official photos is red. On opening the box it turns out it's actually orange.
    A watch is for life, not just for the WRUW thread!

    Exactly my concern - just look how legible any negative G looks in official images ( with perfect lighting)
