    Look what I "found" ...

    Hello Folks,

    I am "new" on the G-Shock scene and a few days ago I received a brand new GW-4000-1AER - it is a really exciting watch ...

    Now I remebered myself that I have bought a G-Shock round about 15 years ago - after searching the basement look what I found:





    It is a DW-6500 - is this anything "special" or just a "normal" old G-Shock ?

    Thanks in forward and greetings from Germany

    Looks pretty nice. It;s a DW-6500 "SkyForce". Not really rare in Germany, but quite a nice watch. Full model number seems to be DW-6500GJ-1B of March 1994, just before the first EL Backlight model (DW-6600). It looks very good. If I recall right, it's just a question of putting a new CR2016 in the watch, and it probably works as new. Before you put in a new battery, check how to open the battery lock and how to reset the watch.

    Cheers,

    Not rare, but as said before, a VERY nice specimen! Swap batteries and get it back online ASAP (with pics, of course!).
    Cheers!

    Wow! That is a nice re-discovery. Casio actually made two or more different versions of this watch. One for domestic Japan and other(s) for export. I have a Japanese version and it has 3 modes "Barometer/Depth/Altimeter". The American version has just Barometer/Altimeter and uses American units of Feet & inHG (inches of mercury for pressure). Your's also has just the Barometer/Altimeter modes BUT uses metric, so that's a surprise new thing to me.

    I read somewhere that even in the USA version, the internal program uses metric natively but the metric is processed through a conversion formula to produce the American units. Nowadays Casio pretty much produces just one 'international' module with units that can be switched as needed for different markets.
    I almost never wear any watch other than a G-Shock. My collection is listed here-->http://watchshock.com/collection/1471/

    Other watches: Invicta Sub-Aqua Venom 5733 & Coalition Forces 0225, Suunto Vector, Traser Mil-G Type 6 P6600 Celebration Edition, Luminox 3059.SAR and a few cheap Timex & Armitron

    Quite easy to do yourself. No sense in paying someone else to change a battery.
