For someone who thinks that a 56mm case isn’t big enough, these bullbars pad it out even more! Jaysandkays don’t actually list a set for this model G Shock, but under the description for the GG1000 set, they state, “These will also fit GWG1000 but are a very tight fit on that model and some people consider too tight. If you purchase for use on GWG1000, be advised of this.”
For a start, for such an inexpensive item, they are beautifully presented, in a sturdy yet attractive box with information card. Shipping from USA to UK took only 5 days.
Easy to install, and being symmetrical, you can’t accidentally put them on upside down! Yes, they are tight, very tight (!) but reassuringly so. In my mind, they look great. There is no issue at all wearing them on your wrist as they don’t feel any different to the naked watch at all. No doubt due to the way the underside fits into the case. I thought the bottom bar may obscure the digital display depending on the angle you display the face, but this also has not been an issue.
I know many will simply hate them, but, I am not a fan of ‘factory standard’ on things I have, and indeed on this one watch, I have changed the strap, changed all the hardware (buckle/keeper) to black, and now these bullbars. To me, it now feels like ‘mine’.
It may or may not protect the case, but that’s not why I have them fitted, it’s the equivalent for me of some go faster stripes.
Now folks, feel free to wade in with your opinion...
