    gax100a-7a advice

    So I "won" an all white analog/digital G-shock in a massdrop random watch pool. I think it is an abomination. It might be the worst watch I've ever laid eyes on.

    Don't get me wrong. I own and love a GW5000-1JF. I like G-Shocks.

    What do I do with this thing? Is it sellable? Is there a niche market for these? Should I list it for close to retail or dump it for cheap?

    You might be able to move it by selling below retail.

    I don't think you'll have trouble selling it, I'd list it for 150.00.
    I do not use ebay so I didn't check there.

    Its a nice base for some mods

    The LCD is positive and the dial white.
    So what you need for a good readable watch are:
    - painted indexes on the dial
    - black painted hands
    - black resin to make it more bearable on the wrist

    And you have a good contrast ana-digi.
    You see no pictures in my post?
    Photobucket decided to lock my pics behind a 40$/month prescription service.
    I used their services since 2009 so the most of my old threads have Photobucket pics inside.
    If you stumble across one of those threads and want to see the pic, PM me and i will re-attach it.
    What can we learn from all the lost information?
    1. never trust cloud services
    2. always keep control of your data

    Looks like ebay has new ones down to about $76. Several around $100. The white models are actually a bit higher than the other colors.

    That is an interesting idea. I had not considered a mod project.

    Orange, which again makes no sense with the green accent hand.
