Bought this NOS off ebay. It looks better in real life than in the CASIO stock photo, mainly because you can see the thickness but it's typical of 2000s styling with beveled / rounded edges and smaller than most 90s Gs. It has a jelly resin strap that is black in color. You'd think it would have to be gray in order to be translucent but it really is somehow both black & see-thru!
It's got some cool features & functionality.
- Duplex LCD (2 LCD panels stacked on top of eachother) is something you don't see on G-Shocks anymore.
- Huge Tide Graph
- Fully customizable 10 Tide site / 10 City World Time
- Flashing LCD areas for CD Timer warnings & Alarm & Stopwatch Auto-start
- Large moon-phase indicator. Moon age with Up & Down times
It's straight battery powered and the battery only lasts about 2 years. It does have Auto-EL. It has a strap that's only just long enough to wrap around my 7.5" wrist and the Light Button is too narrow to use easily. The side buttons are fairly big and easy to operate. The strap keeper stays in place very well, but the buckle doesn't sit down against your wrist and that causes the keeper to press into your skin more & create some mild discomfort.
Kind of a neat G for historical preservation and collection purposes but it's not gonna beat out any of the new stuff and it's not as masculine as the 90s Gs or most of the new stuff that's come out in recent years.
