Been on the road, my friends, traveling in the land of the Rising G-Shocks (Japan). Having a great time visiting Hokkaido, Nagoya, and of course Tokyo.
During this trip, of course I could not resist checking out the local G-scene. Tried on the new MTG-1500 (which I didn't like all that much), as well as picked up a few G-Shock and Casio catalogs.
I also picked up the GW400 Silencer. I've had my eye on this one for a while actually as I think it has a good balance of feature/function for price, and it looks pretty good too. I have not seen this model in other parts of the world, but I know there are a few Silencer fans out there in this forum! I think you'll agree with me that it's a feature-packed watch in a handsome package.
It was a good choice for me because I was looking for watches that had feature that I didn't already have: tide graph, moon graph, vibration. It also didn't hurt that it was an atomic/solar model (I'm a big fan of those).
Here are some quick and dirty pics I took. I'm very happy with it!
