    G3011 back from the dead!

    Evening Gents, I recently decided to put life back into my G3011 from middle school, which has been dead in a drawer for years. I figured I'd include some pictures to show this unique G.

    G3011 has got a nifty duplex display with multiple color combos, I don't really know of other G-Shocks with that specific attribute. Its also got a Databank for holding phone numbers or locker combos, etc. Standard 5 Alarms, timer, stopwatch, 2nd timezone; pretty basic but I was still pretty surprised to find it had all those features (which I never used as a kid).

    As some members have said in previous posts; it is not the prettiest of watches. That being said, it would be an excellent beater or sport watch; it has got big readable digits, metal/aluminum bezel, easy to press buttons, recessed screen, and current time viewable on all modes except the Databank.



    It does stick up pretty high on the wrist, like a large red, black, and silver bulge; not the best option for something fancy . You can't really see in the pictures but the screen sits about 2mm below the aluminum bezel so it is pretty well protected!





    I was surprised to see how the resin on the 3011 isn't curved like it is on most G-Shocks



    Different Duplex Displays:









    And some comparison shots with my DW5600MS; the 3011 digits are almost as big as the whole 5600 display!





    I honestly have no idea why I got this watch when I was a kid; especially when there were most likely better looking models available. Oh well, I haven't worn it in so long that it feels brand new!

    My "cousin" G-3010 says hello (well, not exactly this one, as mine is red--but close enough).\

    One other advantage the G-3011/3010 has over other G-Shocks is the alarm loudness. It's REALLY noticeable, and coming from a CR-2016 powered module. It's what all G-Shocks should sound like, but unfortunately CASIO still makes most of their G-Shocks with anemic alarms. I wish they'd let go of the power concerns and let the consumer balance their usage accordingly.

    it is pretty loud!

    Do you think using the red Duplex LCD 3D looking display drains more energy out of the battery than the 2D black display?

    No difference from the black LCD. It's just a different layer being energized.

    This is crazy, I just came across an old 3011 too! It was my grandfather's which he gave to me years ago because he thought it was too complicated haha! I can't even remember when I acquired it.

    Not for me, classic black is easier on the eyes.
