    Fresh from Japan!

    Just received this from Seiya-san (he's the MAN!!!):gold :gold :gold AWG-500BJ-8AJF in gray. Very cool & understated. Pic is from the web (digi-cam verklempt)
    Saving now for a Black Force with the blue bezel (GW-700BDJ-2JF). Gonna be a stretch, those puppies ain't cheap. Now I just have to find someone who reads Japanese. There's no english manual for the 4359 module yet.
    13 G's and no light at the end of the tunnel.
    Peace
    John

    ps. I really can't say this enough. Seiya-san is first rate!!

    Nice! The GW-700BDJ-2JF is nice too. Good choice and I hope you get it. Don't worry about a manual, I'm sure somebody on the board knows how it works.

    Hi John,

    Congratulations on this model. I think this model will work bout the same way other modern The G G-Shock's work. The white color looks quiet fresh!

    Wear in good health,

    I have the black version of that watch. Got it a month ago from Higuchi. I think I paid $173 US for it. Really love it. Great watch. Glad to see someone else discovered it too. I had no problem figuring out how the watch worked since I have a couple other Gs that are solar/atomic. The manual I received for the watch from Higuchi was in Japanese.

    I got it fron Seiya-san www.seiyajapan.com for $170.00 shipped. A very good deal in my opinion. It's actually darker gray than it looks in the picture. A very cool G indeed.

    Greetings All,
    Wear in good health threejean. Not a great fan of the white/cream watches myself (they don't look good on me ), but even I have to admit thats an attractive model.

    If I can add it has an "old school" look to it. Very different to a lot of the analogues Casio are putting out for their G-shock line.

    Again, wear in good health.

    Resinbandit, its actually a medium gray, almost a US Navy gray. Its a very tough color to photograph up close.

    Hello threejean,
    I'll say it's tough colour! It really looks white:-S Maybe it's different when you photograph it outside in natural light? I noticed this with the jelly/smoke G-shocks that people post. They look really different when they act as prisms in the natural sunlight.

    Wear in good health.
