    Cool Just got my G-STEEL GST-S110D in gold accent trim!

    Hi guys, this model doesn't seem seem to be getting much love here, even the G-STEEL thread is basically dead. Anyway, just got my GST-S110D-1A9 which is the gold accents version and damn is it beautiful! Was afraid the gold might make the watch look cheesy in real life, but when I saw it in real life I fell in love at first sight. Didn't even plan to buy it so soon, but after seeing it at a watch shop and the seller gave me a really good price I couldn't resist, I gave in to my temptations, and am now a proud owner of my first metal-band watch. Always wanted a metal band watch for more dressy occasions and I finally have it now. I don't really see much photos online as well on the gold accent version, so here are some photos!

    Looking good with my Leatherman Surge

    Dual LED lights are pretty cool

    Local distro here currently have an ongoing promotion until the year end offering 2 years warranty, so pretty good deal I'd say.

    Need to get used to reading analog watches now after using Digital my whole life, what used to be instant(reading the time) now takes around 3 seconds

    So far only cons I noticed are missing second hands(love seeing second hand dials move, but I guess it saves battery, then again it's solar....), the lume is only on the hands and not on the indicator so it's kinda hard to tell the time at night relying on just the lume, and the watch is too beautiful to be worn when I work, afraid that i'll scratch it up. After using it for a day it already has a few small scratches on it already

    Anyway, just sharing the love for the poor man's MT-G/MR-G, the G-STEEL

    Very clean looking piece. Congrats on the pick-up. Most of my G-Shocks are analog or ana-digi, and I love them.

It was Grandfather's and when Father gave it to me he said I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire.... I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all your breath trying to conquer it."

    ... "for dressy occasions"?

    Look, not looking to antagonize, but the gst is a) an extremely in-your-face watch, in a non-dressy way, and b) honestly, it's "a bit" too large for you (and tbh most people who don't have Stallone arms).

    Yeah this is my first ana-digi watch after using the G9000 Mudman from 2007-2011 then my Riseman G9200 from 2011-current. Oh well, keeps my brain on the edge I guess haha

    Well, it is dressy compared to my really worn G-9200 Riseman with orange accents

    About the size, my wrists and arms are fairly large, for an asian I guess. I only removed 1 link out of the box and the watch fits snugly, on my Riseman I wear it on the 4th set of hole from the outside and I really do like the size. I saw the S3xx and compared it side by side and didn't like the smaller size of it.

    I'd say I think I look decent with the watch

    Nope it does not, it's full steel like your regular metal band watches.

    Thanks Nightstalker, that's a stunning piece for a Gshock. May have to pick one up soon. I also will use it for the classy look. I've tried Other all metal watches seiko citizen orient in my price range. These Gsteel just keep calling my name.
