    GD-350-8JF Here three days after its release...Good Vibrations...Excitations!

    It seems like ages now, but it was just a few weeks ago that I noticed this watch in a thread by gobulls introducing February '13 G-Shock releases. Finally, here was a truly new G model that had the looks and features like no other G before it. I hadn't seen a stealth-gray G quite like this one before, not to mention the 35 time zone, 100-city mondo World Time and the infamous "vibrator". I still can't think of another Casio, or any other watch, that brings these features, among others, together in one package.

    Pre-ordered with Rakuten merchant Sunknots a couple of weeks ago for an estimated end of February delivery, it was released on the 13th and got to me today, the 16th, through yet another superb collaboration between EMS-Japan and USPS-Express.

    As usual, here's the unboxing. Hope you enjoy it.

    A tidy package from Japan


    Opened neatly without the aid of a knife


    Camera takes a peek inside


    Abundantly, securely bubble-wrapped


    The understated, stylish G-Shock box


    ...Unbagged


    Japanese owner's manual scroll. No worries though, this watch is already released in Asia and my guess is it'll go worldwide soon. We'll see.


    I like the case as well


    Hot dog! In love again.


    Factory fresh, just packaged, with nary a spot on it.


    New color on new resin. A very smooth, chocolate-bar-like look


    Kicking off the lume shots


    And another one for good measure


    This is a great looking piece with a powerhouse module.

    Here's Casio's funny description and specs:

    Great post and photos Air! Mine arrived from Sunknots earlier today also. Good vibrations!

    The quality of the resin is quite nice, buttery smooth, pliable and soft which makes this one of the most comfortable G-Shock I've strapped on my wrist since the GW-5000. The shock absorber "fins" are equally as soft.

    How good is the good vibration? Just curious. Is it as rumble as the cellphone?

    As the watch is worn on the wrist, I think we would hardly miss the vibration regardless how good is it.

    Once I get over the "vibrator" marking, this would be my next new purchase

    Also very tempted, problem is all the colour schemes seem very attractive so the decesion is that much harder. ALso kind of curious what other colour schemes this will be released in...
    As for the 'Vibrator' marking, I think if would be better if they put the word 'Vibration' instead or even better some sort of generic icon / pictogram depicting vibration (but no lewd comments please as to what might be on that pictogram )
