    Incoming GW9400J-1JF Rangeman...

    Edit: Perhaps i jumped the gun by saying its a gw9400j. For now let's just call it a Rangeman.

    So in my excitement I send my brother a text with a picture of my new incoming Rangeman.


    (Borrowed pic from the internet, thanks)

    And he quickly sends me this in return.


    (Borrowed pic from the internet again, thanks)

    With the caption "The Borg"

    Hmm, catchy nick name. For me resistance was futile, given I scored it from Macy's' online store.
    The 9400j pictured on their web site with (Carbon Fiber) written on the strap for about 25% less than the EBay going price.
    I will post pics upon arrival.

    Ok, now that mine is in transit you guys can take the rest. Lol.
    Best wishes.

    Donovan.

    It does look like a borg! I will be interested to see if you actually get the CF strap. I thought only the Japan version had it

    This is a zoomed in pic of the watch from their web site.

    The description says "black resin strap" but the photo is the stock photo for the CF strap version, so yeah, it is a gamble. But either way it is a great watch so I don't think you will be disappointed. Probably the best module of any G-shock, ever.

    Thanks for your reply Kung-fusion. I am on the fence about returning it if it's not the jdm version, but then again you can't beat macys CS and return policy if the gamble pays off or not. If it doesn't I can demand a jdm version just like advertised, and then see what they come up with. On another note, the green version with negative display is pictured with the triple sensor strap.


    Beam me to Monday Scottie!!!

    Fairly certain Macys does not sell the JDM version with the CF strap.

    +1

    The only way they can get a stock is trough Casio USA. And Casio USA does not carry carbon strap version.

    It's probably some co-op kid doing web updates. He likely did a google search to get the image and ended up posting wrong version on the site.

    I've been searching for a macys return story, where somebody wanted to return a gshock (can't remember model) . The customer noticed the same model with a CF strap and asked them to swap it, unbeknownst to the clerk it was a jdm version. I read it last year before the release of the rangeman. Oh Monday!!!
