So i was looking through some of my old stuff and i found my first g shock , which i got in 2001 for my birthday , so i picked it up and looked at its color which turned a ...... grey brown , i wore it and didnt like the feeling as well , so i decided to add new batteries and see if it'll work and it DID !!! so i decided to mod it all up blackening the bezel as well as the inner frame . The strap was another problem . I couldnt afford a new one . So i went to a flea market and picked up a childrens belt for half a dollar and made 2 straps . Black of course , now im rocking this at the gym
