In tradition of Sagittarian birthdays then it is customary to post a thread about a birthday watch. So it happens that today is my birthday and I also received the most awesome gift possible: a GF-1000BP from very kind WUS member pokuan77. It got held in customs for 4 or 5 working days, of course this is not the fault of the seller at all. Then today took a 6-kilometer, 90-minute trip (can you believe it?) to the post officeto retrieve this beast of a G-Shock.Sorry for the boring single photo thread but I am trying to locate my digital camera and take better shots of it ASAP. Maybe do a pseudo-unboxing too! The reason I skipped doing unboxing photos even with my crappy BlackBerry camera is, it is obvious that this watch was not only HANDLED by the Customs guys, but FONDLED and possibly GROPED too. The box is not in good condition at all, and the wrapping which was originally excellent was also re-wrapped in quite a Barbarian way, so I'm not going to try to make your dinner taste bad.
johnny.bravus, sorry for getting this one ahead of you - and yschow, now we're even!!! Will update the thread ASAP with more pictures and possibly a mini-review as soon as I manage to clear my head from being starstruck by this watch. It is too awesome I tell you!
The first picture I took after I got it from the post office.
A better wrist shot. You may notice that my wrist looks different in the two pics, but I assure you, they are both my wrists.
More pics and impressions to come!
