    My new G-2500 arrived today

    I've wanted one of these watches since the first time I saw one and today, mine arrived in the mail. One of the first things I noticed was that the band is not as stiff as the other G-shocks I have and it feels more comfortable on my wrist.The OD green band and black trim gives the watch a nice "military" look. I really like the amber display and the neat way the digits change, very different. On the downside, it doesn't have a countdown timer and automatic "EL" for the backlight but these items are not a "dealbreaker" for me. I still think it's a great watch and I love the way it looks.

    Hi Timecacher,

    The fact it has no countdown timer function was the only reason I never bought this particular model, but I have been tempted many times. Like you the OD/Black finish and amber display have always attracted me. This model was/is even sold in the mobile US Army shops for UN soldiers. I met a soldier wearing this model, who said he bought it while serving in Bosnia.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    This model is a good one for a cheap price.

    Would like it more if it was bigger.

    It's a good model for someone with small wrists. The G-2500 and DW-9052 are the G's I've found so far that fit my 6.5" wrist best.
    The best watch is the one that makes you happiest... and tells the time.

    Yes, it doesn't have the stiffeners on the band like some of the other G-shocks and it fits up closer to your wrist. Also, the band seems to be made of more flexable material which helps too. G-shocks all seem to have a different personality from one model to another, that's what makes them so neat.

    Hi Timecacher! Nice G you have there! Excellent observation on the straps - I have a new G-9000 and the band is much more flexible, almost rubberlike, compared to the strap on a DW-9300 raysman, which is much thicker, kinda almost feels indestructible! I think that personality you mention is what makes 'em so desired!!
