    G-shock wave ceptor tough solar black force MTG 950 BDJ - wrist shots

    Hi guys, I introcuded myself on the forum just before the major meltdown and asked if anybody had one of these...and what were your impressions. The forum went down before I could get to see any responses. I think the g-shock forum was first to go...it wouldn't let me in.

    Anyway, I bought mine last July and wore it quite a bit in the summer. I put it in the window every night and strapped it on when I felt like it. I never seen the power indicator come off of full charge even after long use. My Sinn U2 has been attached to my arm for some time now and I just picked up the g a couple of days ago and am impressed all over again. I find the digital display hard to read a certain angles and light conditions. (you can see from some of the pics) Anybody feel the same way?

    I hear that there is a problem with the battery in this type of watch...can anybody shed some light on this?

    anyway, as promised here are some quick and dirty wrist pics. I don't believe I have seen any here before but I could be mistaken.

    cheers,
    Tim

    I like it alot. the negative display is wild. i have a few waveceptor models in my collection very nice feature. as far as battery problems the only model i have heard about was the Gw300.. or was it gw500?? :-S either way, i am sure by now the bug has been fixed. ya know, the watch does look kinda small on your arm.. maybe a Raysman of Frogman would be a nice compliment??!!

    Hi Tim.. Great watch, i think the Gold Version was the latest release from the series... I dont remember if it was in the FIRE 05 Package... Very nice

    And no there is no problem with the battery if you know how to use a tough solar watch

    wear in good health and welcome to the forum

    Looks like a very nice watch, I like the negative display but it seems the contrast is much sharper in pictures [because of the flash] than in person. The Wave Ceptor and Tough Solar are great together -- the only thing that bothers me about the watch is the lack of a countdown timer. I have the GW-500A, and it has the same battery [CTL1616] as the MTG 950; the level hasn't dropped from High, and it only gets any sunlight when I walk to classes or leave to eat.

    Absolutely stunning watch, Tim. And this is coming from a "no gold on watches" person. Almost dressy, reminds me a little of Rado. I disliked the the same form on my 930, but the "Brass and Black" deserves cult status.

    Thanks to all who replied. Great info. You know, the more I wear it, the more I like it. It's funny, I get almost as many ooohs and aaaahs from friends and strangers with this one as I do with my Sinn U2. And it looks really great with brown carhartt bib overalls and a black prairie sweater!!

    Devori, I was looking at a Triple Crown on eprey....whaddya think..???

    I'll try to post a few more pics of the 950 when I get a chance.

    take care,
    Tim

    Hi tIM,

    Funny you were reading our forum, when I read your post in the Cafe when WUS crashed. Man, those were great weird pictures, ha ha. Cool beard and hair I'm too young to know Led Zeppelin I think.

    I think you have a nice G-Shock. I have never heard compliains about the MTG-950. In the beginning there were problems with the GW-300 and the G-5600 (only released in JP). What do you think of this MTG960?



    The negative displays are indeed harder to watch, but I have many and I have learned to live with that.

    By the way, I think you gonna like a Triple Crown model. They have a BIG and sturdy look and are Tough Solar. I have the green version. Watch out for fake Frogman on eBay, but I have never seen fake GW-200's.



    Cheers,

    Sjors
