    G-Shock DW9052-1BCG with GA100 / GD100 Strap - Fits 9" Wrist!

    Ever since I've been into watches I've liked the aesthetic, form, and simplicity of the G-Shock DW9052 variants. The DW9052-1BCG really appeals to me as a daily driver. It's got no unnecessary bells or whistles, it doesn't look like something your 12 year old newphew would by at the mall, and it has a positive display (unlike my other 2 G-Shocks). It's cheap enough and available everywhere. You don't feel bad wading for Walleye in the Youghiogheny, wiping out on your 29er, or hacking off exhaust studs with an air hammer while wearing it. As much as I hate to admit it, I'd think twice before performing any of the former while wearing my SNZG15 or my G300ML-1A.

    I've struggled on and off for a few weeks with wearing my DW9052-1BCG on the last hole of the strap. Alas, my GD100-1B was (aesthetically) in need of a new strap and bezel, thus I decided to try the old strap from my GD100-1B on my DW9052-1BCG.

    Although I didn't take before / after photos (which I'm notoriously bad at not doing on the hobby related forums that I occupy), I used Meguiars PlastX to clean up the scratches and discolorations on the strap. I used a steel brush on the Dremel to clean up the bucle and leave it with a brushed finish. The strap came out so well that I would not have ordered a replacement for the GD-100-1B if I had cleaned it up first.

    The final result: The '9052 fits my 9 inch wrist like a charm and looks like a total beast with the GA100 / GD100 strap! Be aware of the fact that the spring bars for the GA100 / GD100 are slightly thicker in diameter, so, compensate as necessary.

    Nice idea!
    Could you do some close up shots of the connection lug/strap?

    The beefier strap is making the watch looking much better!

    Yes. I'll take some when I get home later tonight. If I don't post them you may want to send me a PM to remind me.

    Update: I wore this watch yesterday when I went to visit my parents. My dad complemented me on it. Knowing that his old Timex just died on him and the troubles he has finding watches that fit (he has 9 inch wrists too), I gave him the 9502, thus no additional pics to post.

    Sorry!
