    Welcome, charger.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Especially those large steel buttons underneath the resin bezel. And then the orange one was on sale with 33% off - and it was the "Japan Y" version, too. So I couldn't resist.
    I really like:
    - the construction
    - size and weight
    - color
    - that it really stands out
    - that I could get a "Japan" G-Shock without having to pay Frogman-prices (btw: just to mention it: there's a difference between "Made in Japan" and "Japan" on the back of a watch, the quality is probably the same as on the "Made in Thailand" version but just the limited number makes it special)

    regards, Sedi
    Hi Sedi, it's interesting to know that, since when I bought mine, I specifically asked the seller to check whether the back has "JAPAN Y" or "Made In Thailand" :) I know there is most probably no difference in quality, but just like you said, I feel it is slightly more special to have that "JAPAN" engraving.

    I really like the styling on the 56 and would buy one in a heartbeat if I had any more room in the rotation. I love all squares in general and this one takes it to a new level.

    That it is HUGE!

    I feel like if I swung a backhand at a zombie or a similar threatening entity I have a good chance of removing it's head with the blow thus allowing for my escape. These are important things to consider when selecting a good timepiece.

    2012 is right around the corner people! What are YOU doing to prepare for the zombie apocalypse?

    Hi, this is my very first post on this forum.

    For me, the GX-56 is one of the most comfortable G-Shocks I own which surprised me considering its size.
    Just found this picture of the new GXW-56GB-1JF. I don't think anyone has posted any info regarding the black & gold atomic version before. I need this watch badly!



    All the best,

    Warren

    Welcome, Wazza. I assume you are from the UK?
    Like that Black Gold King you posted -- but I may have had too many negative displays. I don't really think it belongs in the GB series because the 'gold' is too subtle...which is better to some

    Thanks for the welcome! You're right, I am from the U.K. living in the Scottish Highlands. Profile now updated
    I currently have the positive display GXW-56 so the stealth version would make an excellent addition for me.
