    It's a positive display, no wait, it's a negative display, no wait . . . .

    So my 30th watch is here and it is a G-3000ML-1. It is a 20th anniversary model, though I use the term loosely because it is only on the tag. This watch has been shown on WUS before, but since the watch is new to me, I get to share my amazement!

    This watch has the ability to change "colors" or displays. From what I can tell, there are two "levels" on the display, one being a normal level and the other to bold. I haven't totally figured it out yet, but it is a neat effect. I'm just gonna post up a few photos to show the different ways it can display.

    This is my attempt at catching the "normal" shot. The watch model in the background keeps nosing the camera to make sure the settings are correct

    Can it do negative on top and bottom?

    No, and I don't know why on the lower but not the top. Not sure if it was just timing (10 years ago there weren't many negative display g-shocks), or some technological issue on the bigger display with the added complication of the Bolding.

    20th Anniversary

    move the curser on the pic of G-3000ML .
    it will show the band printing and back engraving .
    the strap keeper was not like other 20 anni-Gs .
