    Helping the economy... 25 anniv style

    OK this forum is baaaaad.
    This is the second G this month, third in 40 days.

    I was with the kids at JC Penneys, strolling by the watches and caught a glimpse of a lonely 25th anniversary GW5525A in the case. It had the clearance tags. I had the additional coupon. So 58 bucks later here I am.
    I never would have even thought to go over there if it hadn't been for this @#$%! place. God help me when I get to Hong Kong next month.

    Wifey's comment: "Wow... retro.... but I like it!" (she's a keeper)
    and then later "I wish my BabyG had atomic sync!" (double keeper)

    Didn't have time to get out the light box, so colors & reflections are a bit off. Gomen nasai.













    Love the DB color scheme. Now... to wear, or not wear.

    Congrats, Rorschach. Lehman Brothers is dead and gone, but J.C. Penney lives on. Bernanke and Paulson thank you for your selfless and heroic efforts to singlehandedly generate an economic turnaround. Keep on spendin'.

    Man you gotta wear that G at that price you can get another if you want to I have been really happy with mine. have worn it much more than I thought. now when I put on my DW-5600WC or the DW-5025 Rising I look at them and think wheres the crystal protection the GW 5525 is built like a tank the one thin I would have liked better is to have a screwdown caseback

    remove the caseback from the 5025 and force screw it onto the 5525. remember to use excessive force. im sure it will work fine and dandy.

    good luck !!!
