    How to read mode abbreviations, a start

    The point is to explain the letters in an abbreviation:
    AL = AL arm mode
    ST = ST opwatch mode
    DT = Dual Time
    Days of the week in English are obvious
    but what is
    TR ?????

    Hi Gerald,

    Welcome to our G-Shock forum. TR is the abbreviation for Countdown Timer, my most favorite and used function aside of time reading.

    Cheers,

    I reside in the city of Mobile in the state Alabama in the United States of America. I lead a small group of marine biologists who study dolphins and whales --- and some of whom are G-Shock fans. We can tell you that the G-Shock is also blood-proof. We often work up to our elbows in dolphin or whale blood.

    So far I conclude that the "T" in TR is the first letter of "Timer," and that the "R" in TR is the last letter of "Timer." That will work for me if there is no more occult meaning.

    The dolphin and whale blood sounds nasty

    At least we can add a "Blood Resist":-D

    Hi Gerald,

    Marine Biology must be exciting. Actually an old student of me visited my lab yesterday. She is starting next week a study for a few months in "Seaworld" Blankenberge, that threats sick sea mammels. In Januari she starts a study on the Seychelles.

    I can't try if my G-Shock's are blood proof, but I originaly studied "Clinical Chemistry", so during my study I have worked a lot with (human) blood too.

    As Marine Biologists you must be interested in the I.C.E.R.C. (
    International Cetacean Education and Research Centers (I.C.E.R.C.). models of G-Shock too...

    Greetings from The Netherlands,

    A beautiful city, full of charming and friendly people. I had the great pleasure to live, sadly for just a few months, in Fairhope, just across the water. I hope to return again some day.

    Re: How to read mode abbreviations, a start

    I am learning more than I expected. Even though I am active in the Society for Marine Mammalogy and the American Cetacean Society, I have not heard about the International Cetacean Educational and Research Centers (I.C.E.R.C.) or the International Dolphin & Whale Conference.

    When the SMM had a joint meeting with the European Cetacean Society in Monaco, I went. I happen to know about the Mexican society for marine mammals, but there I meet my limits.

    I am guessing the I.C.E.R.C. G-shock was a limited edition, perhaps available to those attending that 7th Conference mentioned or the reverso side of the watch. I can't find it in www.casio.com, the United States version.

    I ought to have mentioned that resistance to blood is not as important as resistance to the cleansers we use to remove the blood and the bad odors. HA, Ha, ha. :thanks
