    Picture G-701D-2AV arrived today -- stop me before I buy again!

    I bought a G-701D-2AV off the 'bay to round out my collection with a metal band ana-digi. I officially need to stop for a while now, but we all know how that goes . . .

    All-in-all, I was very satisfied with the purchase, although the seller missed mentioning some scratches on the back of the case. Actually, saying "the watch is new, and there are no scratches" goes a little beyond missing it. It looks good from every angle that can be seen when it's on my wrist.

    By the way, the fingers and camera lens that can be seen reflected in the end-on shot belong to my girlfriend and watchnographic photographer.

    Pics follow:

    Very sharp ! Congrats and wear it in great health.

    Excellent pics too - I take your point on the seller's description but your pic quality shows clearly that there is no wear anywhere else on the piece. I'm glad it is not spoiling your enjoyment of it - nor should it as you're never gonna see those marks anyway. I'd probably flick the seller an email pointing out his misdescription but I wouldn't get sucked into anything that might sour the watch for me.

    NB don't you need an analogue only before you stop ? Giez...maybe GW-2000 ? I'm just askin' is all

    Coler,

    I definitely agree. I'm loving the watch, and any scratches or scuffs on the back mild enough not to chafe my wrist aren't really an issue. It's not like I'm going to send it back for squeaky buttons or anything.

    I am going to send a message on the bay to mortalicious letting him know about the scuffs and scratches - just to say 'check front and back before claiming no scratches - others might have been less laid-back about it.'

    Oh, and re: the full analog -- thanks alot, you enabler you. :thanks

    Nice! I used to have a analog/digital Cockpit G that had the exact same case and bracelet. Very chunky but comfortable also.

    congratulations

    my girlfriend and me own three of the cockpit series right now and i have plans to buy a fourth, but probably not in the near future, because there are at least two other models which will come first...
