It's been a while since I bought a non 5600 or 6900 G-Shock so when this unworn older collaboration came up on Yahoo Japan, I snapped it up. I hadn't since the red one for sale before but I knew of the watch from some old posts and an old Sjor's article on it (he has a blue one and you know how little he likes blue ). It arrived this morning in one of the nicer JDM boxes that the higher market G-Shocks seem to arrive in (pillow in a harder box with a card one around that). It was really well packaged too, with the entire watch/pillow wrapped up in the box in cellophane.
I really like these older models, it seems like pre-2000 Casio really tried to pack quite a few features into G-Shocks. This is one of the Data Memory G-Shocks, with the telephone, schedule and vital information options. I'll probably never use them but it's nice they are there. There are five colours for this watch with this red one being the most striking in my opinion and the brown one looking like the easiest to wear (I'm trying to track one of those down).
