    Picture Cognac Time: "Christmas Jason" G-001; love it or hate it! (Surprise pic at the end)

    Finally got my first Jason. Yes it is a little late, but that's because I used to absolutely hate it and never ever thought about owning one. I know it has popped up a couple of times in that "Ugliest G-Shock" thread lol, and I can understand why. It really isn't the kind of watch design that G-Shock will come up with. It's just...really un-G-Shockish. But with all due honesty, coming from someone who used to detest it, you really have to hold it in your hand, meddle with it and slowly but surely, it will grow on you. I believe a few Jason owners can vouch for that? Haha..anyway, I like it precisely because it looks so different. And it looks more like a toy watch. Even the cute bulky buckle is made of plastic. And den it daunt on me; what can be better than a G-Shock that looks nothing like a G-Shock, but actually is equipped with the toughness of one? What can be better than that!? And me being me, I like bright colorful watches and things that are atypical, and somehow fell in love with this Jason. Now, I've already know what my 2nd Jason will be. =D

    But anyway, just a couple of pics to share with you guys. And Christmas is just 2 months away, so this Christmas Jason will be an early fitting gift for myself! lol..

    I got mine last christmas from Bangkok. We had left Chiang Mai on Christmas morning and reached Bangkok by the evening.. I wanted it on Christmas Day, so I ran to Isetan and picked it up just before closing! I love the Toy look & it's playful colours.

    Great pickup, this Jason is proper 'bonkers' and I like that.

    Though I strongly prefer the original DW-001 Jasons, this 'Xmas' Jason does tempt me.

    I have nearly succumbed a few times in the past so you never know, the Xmas season may just push me over the edge!

    Yeah I agree..it would have been much better if the temperature function still exist though..makes the holes much more meaningful. but then again, I'm happy with this one! =D

    what? the Jason has a plastic buckle ? It surely a contra for me now, in my decision to get one

    I never thought the Jason as ugly, it's just unique and its various color-schemes make it so fun to wear (at least in my imagination) I once miss a deal on a pink jason, and forever regret it as it is now too un-affordable for me

    LOLz

    I have never considered getting a Jason, not because I think it is ugly or anything but I just never thought of it. After seeing your's and Starscream's photos, boy I am getting tempted!

    Nice photos you have got there + the lovely manbox! :)

    I admire you guys in wearing this. I like a little color but this looks too much like Santa Claus to me. Congrats and wear it in health

    You should bro! I've always really really wanted the bubblegum Jason since day 1, but it's one of those super over-priced Gs online:
