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.
