    DW-8800AJ Alaskan Dog Mushers Association Collection

    Being a G-Shock newbie I had no idea these even existed, but THIS post inspired me and I had to have one! There are five available, in various different colours, see HERE.

    I spotted one on ebay from a seller in Japan (bbtiestio, comes highly recommended as this is the second mint condition watch I have received from him in recent weeks). It arrived yesterday, and I am amazed! It came out in 1998 and doesn't look like it has even been worn, the condition is amazing without a single mark on the bezel or strap, it even has the plastic on place on the back. The box is slightly damaged, but nothing, and there is no manual but they are available online so it's no concern



    Although I will be wearing the watch, it will be reserved for high days and holidays to keep it in good condition. As such it was especially satisfying to have the box in such good condition too







    The strap has a light blue velcro band, with a white nylon overstrap. It is a bit bulky, but I quite like that, and supremely comfortable on the wrist. I love the ADMA detailing, especially as Alaska and sled dogs are a specific interest of mine.





    This picture shows the overall condition of the watch very well. It is my third G after my Riseman and my Wademan, but I have to say I have admired the face of this much more than the others! I don't know why but I can just stare at it for hours



    I also love the detail on the back, with the original protective plastic still in place.



    The collection:



    On the wrist:



    As I said above there are five in this collection, and I hope in time I will own them all, and if they're all in this condition I will be a happy man I'm getting there as I already have a 7AT coming from Japan

    I need to sit down when I have some time and read the manual and get my head around the 'codename' aspect, and practive my morse code!

    Thanks for reading :thanks

    Pearl white is a great colour on a car. Never seen it on a watch before.

    I'd be tempted to get a few different colour straps for it. What width of strap fit in those strap converters?

    Hi James,

    Congratulations on finding this watch in such a good condition. You know I love these models. I considered myself very lucky to own one of these (now I have two). I think you feel the same as how I did when I got mine. Beautiful watch, without doubt. Wear it proud in good health!

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    A very cool watch with some similarities to the DW-9052! I especially love the case back and the band!

    Nice watch...


    ...but it would get dirty and stinky here in no time flat. Definitely good for wearing the snow.

    Very nice watch. I've got the 7BT model of this watch. They are a nice looking watch but their a little to big for some people. Keep adding to your collection.
