Hi everyone - this is my first post here. Just about a week ago I got a G for the first time. Judging by some old posts I saw, it's not a favorite here, due to its size. :)
It's a GW-056J-1JF, and I'm very happy with it. I plan to write a brief review of it fairly soon, and maybe take some good pictures (I included a few quick dirty ones here)
But I'm wondering - is Casio going to keep making this style? It seems like they might be interested in making it one of the "standard" G shapes, since they just introduced two more of them (a fire package and a fifa) a few weeks ago in Japan. Will they likely ever be available outside of Japan? Are any of these questions that anyone knows the answer to? :)
I'm partially interested because I think this is a really neat design - it attracted me to a G-shock, which most of the huge chunky roundish G-shocks of recent years haven't done at all, although I really love the look of some of the ana-digis - big watches, as good as they may look, are very uncomfortable for me.
I'm also, of course, partially interested because I'm wondering if I'll ever be able to get a replacement strap if I wear this one out. It seems durable, but check out those lugs! Can't exactly toss it on a fast-wrap if this strap disintegrates. :)
Thanks for any help you might have, email me if you want to see better pics and it will make me take them sooner. :)
