so Christmay is coming closer and I needed some more Gs. Amazon had a coupon on watches so it was a steal (35€ - about 50$) - and I wanted one of the G-77XX series anyway - the color is much nicer in person than on the pictures I think - perfectly matches my "baby-blue" Adidas jacket.
Here come the pics (quick and dirty as always - lighting was bad and with two kids I almost never have the time to take decent pictures - maybe during the holidays):
First the unwrapping process:
the black box we all know and love:
the nice bronze tin:
I really like the way Casio wrap the watches in an extra blister foil:
And there it is:
As usual hard to take decent pics of the negative display (which is far better to read than my G-Cool):
Really like the size - it fits my wrist perfectly:
And some more pics:
I like that one - the module is just great and one of the best of the non-atomic Gs I think (maybe only surpassed by the new G-7800). Also very good is that you got the time on the main Display in every mode (except STW and REC-mode but I hardly ever use the STW anyway), the double CDT also comes in handy and finally a new G that has a CDT that's setable to the second like the old-school Gs! The only thing I'm not quite happy with is the light button - it's recessed into the case and a little hard to press without using the finger-nail (which I try to avoid since I managed to press a little dent into the mode-button of my Riseman). Does anybody know if some of the G-77XX series have a metal light button? On the pictures it looks like the G-7700-1ER and the G-7700BL-1ER have a metal button or is it just chromed plastic?
Despite this minor flaw all in all a great watch especially for people with small wrists.
I almost forgot - on the German G-Shock website all the Gs have nicknames - this one is named "cloud cooler" which I think is a good nickname for that watch.
