So, while browsing my local CL today, I happened upon a G that I for one did not believe I would ever get. I've been searching for a square for a while so imagine my surprise when I find not only a square, but a screw back! Original owner's pics showed that it was in dire need of a new battery and band (imagine a dog thinking the straps are a tasty treat...now imagine a teenager instead of a dog...yeah...thankfully I had tweezers). Well, drove a 2hr round trip (worth it imo), sat down and took my time to pop in a new battery while chatting with the seller and when the lil bugger came to life, we struck a deal.
Now all I need are a set of bullbars (anyone feeling generous? lol) and debating whether or not I should "stealth" the bezel
Edit 1- By the way, any screw back owners able to answer my 3 questions?
1- does anyone else's REM button have an audible click? not the G shock beep, but an auditory "click"
2- I noticed the module is actually slanted / lower on the right side where the date resides, is this due to the light bulb in the left?
3- aside from pulling apart the spring that makes the beeps, how do I manually turn off the beep? I'm guessing I can't... eh ces't la vie
Edit 2 - I found out why the owner's kid chewed on the straps...damn thing smells like strawberries!? (*sniffs watch while typing)
Onto the pics:
Those adapters took a good amount of time and some fancy French to get on. The lug width iirc of the screwbacks are 18mm...but I did not expect the clearance to have a difference.
