    G Shock Fire Package????

    What makes the G Shock Fire Package different than the regular watch of the same model? Is it just the illumination? If so, how does that justify spending another $80-120 for a light?

    Certain watches have that designation if purchased from Japan like the gw 2110 fb and I believe some of the gw 500 models.if purchased from a Japan vendor they come with a nice snap down box and an outer .I just picked up a variant of the gw 500 with the green tint from amazon for 120.00 and there is no mention of fire anything.it will probably come in the budget box you get from say walmart.it all depends on if the extra sizzle or pop of a killer box set is worth the extra cheese to you.to me on a JDM frogman I would want the special extra,s but not so much on a gw 500.

    Cheers
    John

    "Fire package" appears to vary wildly across different models.

    I got my GW-2300F-4 right before my "base model" GW-2310:

    The only differences in mine are the red inner bezel ring and the copper-colored ring under the glass. Same backlight, same packaging as I recall (cardboard box, tin, manual) and same resin. (The strap adapters and red Zulu strap were parts I added afterwards.)

    Mitch100 did a nice write-up of his GW-2300F over here: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/gw-...ge-995239.html

    @Mike, thanks for the link, I was thinking about the GW-2300FP, Japanese release which has the red LCD, which I have been in the hunt for a few years now
    (together with the DW-5000ML)

    Well I decided that the extra $100 was not worth it and pulled the trigger on the all black model instead..... that green is pretty though

    It's pretty strange the "Fire" models includes the green version. Guess you can have a green fire. If that's what it meant, LOL

    For the GWM500, there's an orange version (GWM500F-1CR) and a new green version released recently (GWM500F-1CCR), which are belonging to the Fire editions. There's also a blue version (GWM500BA-1CR), which somehow (despite similarity) does not belong to Fire, but rather part of the Black X Blue series. All three are exactly the same as the base model (GWM500A-1) in functions, except for minor cosmetic differences.

    Re: G Shock Fire Package????

    Since I have owned a few AWG-M100F watches, I saw a nice orange one that I later discovered was part of the Fire Package. I got and was really liking the orange color and then saw a yellow version that really caught my eye. It was on my list of watches to buy but disappeared and hard to come by until one popped up and snagged it. Both came from Japan in a nice trunk box. There is a green one available now as pictured in a few previous posts but this is a US release as well but doesn't come with a trunk box, just the standard blue box packaging. The Japan version is a bit more pricier and comes with the trunk box.
