    DW-5000ML opened after 15 years storage

    Today is National Day of China and this year is 35th anniversary of G Shock. To celebrate this double event, I decided to open one 20th anniversary DW-5000ML for wear, 15 years after its official release.

    The design of this anniversary box is the best among its other two sisters.
    I select this G because it is the only one still has battery power. I actually wondered why this battery can last for so long.

    Wow! I'm not sure if I would have the self control to keep myself from wearing a new watch for such a long time. I have a Sumo that was bought two years ago that I haven't worn but it's a gift that I'm saving for my son when he gets older.

    A man wearing a watch, outside of purely social functions (where, strictly speaking, a watch is not supposed to be worn), makes it clear to everyone in his purview that they are in the presence of a man who considers his time something of value, not something to be wasted.




    A man wearing an ostentatiously expensive watch makes it clear to everyone in his purview that they are in the presence of a man who considers little.

    My situation is a bit different. They were bought for my personal museum but not for wear, like somebody collect sport shoes.
    I also bought two baby G frogman some years ago as gift for my daughters when they are 18 years old, still have some years to go.
    For sure, your son will appreciate a brand new vintage watch when you give him.

    Thanks for everybody loves this model. You don't easily find a brand new one nowadays.

    By the way, when I pressed the light button, it ran out of battery and dead. Need to go out to replace a battery.

    Please, if you are not replacing the battery yourself, only leave it with the most trusted of jewelers! To get a scratch on that beautiful shiny screw back would be criminal!
