    THE EAGLE HAS LANDED - Part Deux (caution, modem burner)

    Before I start, Sjors, my DW-004B-4V landed along with my Seiko. It looks great as you will see.... when I press the light button tho, the display goes dark. Does this just mean that it needs a battery or is the module mess up? Thanks Sjors....

    OK... to continue.. THE EAGLE HAS LANDED...

    5 year old daughter calls saying, "Daddy, the eagle has landed."
    Cool.... I rush home to this:



    Far freaking out !!!!!!!
    I open her up to find this:





    OK... I don't need no stinking box for the money I paid for this watch...
    HERE SHE IS:





















    The litter after the feast !!!!!!!!!!!



    All that's left of the packaging:



    So while I was taking pictures of the Seiko I heard the exclamation, "Oh my god!" from my wife when she went out to retrieve the mail. Part Deux has landed as well.
    YEAH BUDDY !!!!!!!!!!!!!



    My ghandi, this 1998 watch looks brand new.... for $16... holy smokes !!!!





    Thanks for indulging me!

    I can hardly believe the condition of that $16 watch...

    Stunning.

    What a day you're having!

    Nice stuff. I've been looking at an Orange Monster, but I was told no more until the end of the year. Unless I sell of something else and I'm not ready for that.

    I'd PS out your last name/addy, though. Just as this is a public forum.

    Wow. That's a great day. Congrats and enjoy. I don't have one, but hear/read great things about the monsters.

    Thanks Tribe.....

    You remarked about the DW-004 being so pristine... WOW.. you have no idea.. I just changed the battery and she works like a champ.. I bet that was the original battery... and I don't think this thing was worn.... take a look at the pictures of the band.... no marks at all... this thing is awesome....
