    My new G-Shock DW-004

    Been lurking on this site for a while and looking at all the cool watches and learning. well today i finally get to contribute. I had this G-shock probably back in 97 or 98, it was my paramedic school graduation present to myself. It was my first G-shock and my favorite. I lost it one year and never could find it and I've been looking to replace it ever since. I stumbled upon it on ebay and few days ago and saw this ad for this watch. i was hesitant at first because it didn't work but the seller said it just needed a battery and that it was practically brand new. well, since I've been searching for years i took a leap of faith, bid on it and won!

    the watch showed up today and wow was i surprised. this watch was brand new, not a scratch on it, i don't even think the velcro was ever strapped. the seller said he was a fashion photographer and that the watch was worn for 15 min for a shoot and put in a drawer.

    anyways, i found the battery replacement thread on WUS as well and did it myself with no issues and now i have my personal "grail" back in my possession fully working again!

    Great way to get back into watches. Welcome to the club. Beware of what happens here. You'll be broke in no time.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Nice old style 'G' there. I have a few with the velcro strap as well. They are not my favourite I must admit being a bit bulky for my small wrists but they certainly are comfortable.

    How do you find it?
