    G-Shocked today....

    went to a out-of-town place today to window shop while passing time and came across a smallish watch shop with some G's on display...of which were 4 `older' G, which the owner have not sold.

    since i bought a seiko yesterday, i was not keen on adding another watch, but the more i linger, i told myself i will get just one ....however, after 30mins, i left the shops with 3 Gs

    here they are...
    1. AW-5000NS-8ET, a limited edition PSC digi-ana G Shock
    2. DW-003S, a green glide
    3. DW-9000AS, (i think) an early G Shock digi-ana

    as i am not too familiar with these model, can the experts out there enlighten me about them, especially the year of release....

    i think i will probably wear the DW-9000AS only. the rest will be to admire



    thanks for viewing!

    hmmm... sounds familiar... you told yourself that you are just browsing when you enter the watch shop and when you come out, your wallet is lighter and your hand is holding a bag with a watch inside..

    I've never seen those ana/digis before. The black one looks like the G-100's predecessor. Very nice trio.

    A cracking little haul there buddy the silver bezel on that glide is sweet.

    Does that PCS ana-digi have any lume at all? either backlight or on the hands?, likewise for the other ana-digi. Iirc, the PCS has no night illumination at all.

    Hi Garbage,

    Great score. If you look at the back of the black analogue, you will see that it isn't the DW-9000 Air and Style (I don't see the Air and Slyle Logo). It probably is an AW-560 in gold tone, released somewhere in 1994.

    The PSC is very nice. I haven't seen this one around a lot. I got one, and it might be yours is the second or third I see.

    The G-Lide is super.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    total respect, sjors....you are truly the G-Man!
    u are spot on..after checking, it is indeed a AW-560.
    i guess i was handed the wrong box...the shop owner did tell me that it's hard to find the right box since it is old but told me tt he got the right one after a short frantic search...i guess he's wrong.
