    My G-shock photo book

    Hi guys,
    I recently found this forum and bought a new camera so I came to say hi and post mi "G" collection.


    & tissot t-touch (4-5 years oldit cost me 500€) I love it, but i had many problems with him including a machinery change of 300€





    Mudman G-9000-1v
    85€
    Resin case 20' Boiled to soften the buttons. It appears to be a great difference before and after doing this mod. (no pictures)


    It was my last purchase, I love it.
    PROS:
    * Very comfortable (cool nubs) and light. Low profile perfect for wearing under the cuff.
    * 2 Stopwatches with 5 secs countdown an flash
    * pretty legible, big numbers and very very tough
    CONS:
    * Stiff buttons without boilling



    Classic GW-6900-1 solar/atomic
    120€


    Classic model, very cool with the atomic/solar stuff. Tons of functions. My Favorite


    casio illuminator dw-290 hydro converted
    very old but hard as ever.


    It lost the "casio illuminator" printed words with several washes. Hydro moded and used in diving with no problem at all after 10 years or more.


    PRG-40


    compass mode




    Big watch with big digits. Many functions, ABC watch. Tought and cool



    AW-¿?¿?¿590 or 100¿?¿? Solar/atomic




    Ana/digi watch with solar/atomic cool functions. Used in weddings celebrations and parties.



    G-7710



    My favorite watch for sports. Pretty tough, buttons easy to press and negative display
    PROS
    * light
    * multiple stopwatch and alternative countdown
    * easy to press
    CONS
    * Difficult to read in direct sunlight (negative display)
    * No solar/atomic =(



    Casio Illuminator dw-290 hydro conversion


    First of all I picked the silicone Oil 2000 c.p.s, screwdriver and 2 pieces of paper.


    Filled with Oil (no pictures of before/after)

    Back filled with oil

    Close look at the bubble

    putted together again


    Waiting for the bubble to appear in the screen... I will post a photo

    Feel free to post your pics and/or correct my grammar. Sorry for my english, I'm Spanish speaker.

    Nice shots there - I like the DW-290 mod.

    I picked up a new DW-290 last week for just £16 - I had one as a kid but it failed water resistance and my parents took it back for a refund. When I saw it on offer, I had to get it. It's the poor kid's G-shock!

    It has decent features - 24h countdown is very rare even on top-end watches. It's a pity the green printing rubs off so easily and the plastics cheap - modern techniques are much better. Still, I have a soft spot for this model.

    I've also got a PRG-40 and I love the big display, but boy is it a tough watch to live with... it takes FOUR batteries and eats them in like six months.... crazy!

    Hydro-converted DW-290!

    Very nice - the DW-290 is a minor cult on this forum.

    Welcome!
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...
