I bought a G-Shock from a high street jewellers in the UK in the mid 80's.
I have either lost the watch or I have vague recolection that it was pinched at a mountain bike event. Unfortunately I don't have any photos of the watch and I would be interested to know what model it was.
It was definately a G-Shock because I remember the brand recently being launched and there was quite a bit of advertising in the UK. It had 4 buttons which I am pretty sure were gold coloured and it operated in a similar way to the 1545 module. I can't remember if the buckle was gold. It didn't have Flash Alert and I don't recall a Rem function although I may not have been aware of it.. It did have an alarm and stopwatch for sure. The Light was a small white bulb on one side that was not bright. It was waterproof to 200M.
It looked like a DW-5000 shape from memory and it definitely had a DW-5000C strap with the extra ridges around the holes. I am almost certain that it had a silver screwback because I remember first seeing a 4 screw back many years later and thinking that was not as good as the one I had.
I can't remember whether it had a 5000 style brick face or the 5600 face.
So far it sounds like it may have been a DW-5000B.
Here's the bit that I can't figure out. I am pretty sure that it had the HD logo on the front of the display and this may have been where the Shock Resist crest was. That HD logo looks very familiar to me somehow so I am wondering if the UK had a sort of cross over version?
Can anyone help me to identify this model?
One other thing that I remember is that this was the only G-Shock model available at the time in the UK.
And another thing. It was a damn fine watch that lived on my wrist and was hardly ever taken off. It never let me down and woke me every morning.
