    My latest vintage g shock

    Today I recieved the latest addition to very small (4) but growing collection of g shocks. Itís the DW-6100, yes it has the later and not so good 1414 module but itís in superb condition and I love it.

    Some of you might of seen it on ebay, it was listed last wednesday and I bought it on thursday. Maybe I payed a bit to much for it (£89.99) but IMO it is worth every penny. Only thing I donít like that much is the gold buckle but no big deal.

    Some pics..

    Nice! I love mine. I found vintage G has a certain charisma that's missing in modern G-Shocks :)

    Its awesome that yours has original matching bezel, strap and buckle. Embrace the gold buckle :)

    Here's mine with Brazil bezel

    Buckle is only held in by a spring bar, you can change it to a standard silver, or black in seconds! (Obtained on Ebay for very little money)

    One thing I donít get is that it doesnít say ďMade InĒ on the back, all it has is the letter T.

    Wow, it has a thermometer! Maybe thatís what T on the case back stands for? Or made in Thailand

    the gold buckle and lettering is part of that model. it has a sister with white lettering and silver buckle. the one you have is the rarer of the 2 so you have a good find.

    congratulations.

    Nice pick-up! I love vintage G-Shocks. It hearkens back to a time when CASIO was a bit more daring in design experimentation. Some of the things they came up with were pretty wacky, but some of it quite cool and unusual.

    My only hesitation with these older models is the older sensors... I often wonder if they still work properly or if they can stack up to the current models with refined tech. But who knows, with temperature sensing there may not be all that much to improve. I DO wish they'd come up with a better insulator to help deflect the warmth of the watch case cause by the human wrist, as that will skew readings.
