    Crazy Color Yellow/Black/Yellow G8900SC-1Y

    This is one of those models that showed up at some Macy's stores very shortly after the Japan release. Being a fan of yellow/black watches and timers that can be set to 1 second, I've been eyeing this one at the local Macy's since September. Finally, their Friends and Family 25% discount gave me an excuse to get it the old-fashioned way last Saturday. I went in to browse, asked to try it on, liked the way it looked and felt on the wrist, bought and brought it home where it sat on my kitchen table undisturbed until a short while ago when I got around to opening and photographing it.

    What's in the bag? I almost forgot


    A sight that always excites


    Crazy Color showing through


    I don't remember a yellow G with a yellow LCD before this one


    It's more stylish than crazy to my eyes


    Yellow and black is repeated in a nicely coordinated glossy and matte finishes throughout


    The silver buckle stands out in distinctive contrast to all the yellow and black


    The twin-LED light is


    ...Icy white and bright


    The multifaceted 8900 shape in


    ...Glorious yellow and black


    Watch curiously set to Tokyo time of April 2010

    tremendous photo set. Love the yellow eye, buttons and light button and of course the ice blue illumination. I'm torn between this and the SC-7 white/grey. As I already have 3 other yellow/black themed G-shocks GW7900CD-9, GD-X6930E-9 and G-6900A-9, I think I will settle for the SC-7.

    Great shoots and a lovely looking watch. I am going to get this for sure!

    But you forgot the mandatory wrist shoot!
