    Is the GW4000 Series only G-Shock with Metal?

    I'm curious.......
    I have a GW3000BD and recently purchased the GW4000-1A. It just seems odd to me theat the 4000 has a metal layer on it. These seems to defeat the "G-Shock"ness (New word?!?). It looks like this will be part of the watch that is easily dinged/scratch.

    I hadn't thought of that. I really like the metal body on it, wearing my 4000 today.
    Yes, I am OCD. What gave it away?

    Yes it really is a sharp looking watch. It's also amazing with the resin band there are times I don't realize I have it on.

    Wait a minute... GW-3000/3500 series also has a big metal part on it. So GW-4000 is not the only one with metal parts. Older Aviators (GW-2000/2500) and many MTGs and MRGs have similar construction as well. Not to mention of Giez which has all-metal case with only few plastic parts on it.
    Please excuse my imperfect English :)

    On most of the models with a steel part on the bezel it is protected by resin - only one I can think of right now that has that part exposed is the G-7800 (apart from the all-metal MRGs of course). So it shouldn't scratch too easily.
