Anyone else running naked?
Let's see 'em...

Earlier today I came accross this G540D monstrosity with a fifteen dollar price tag on it. G-Shocks have never been my thing but lately I've been craving one just to see what all the hub-bub was all about. So I haggled down the price to ten dollars (since the battery was dead and there was no real way of knowing if it was functioning or not) and brought it home.
After replacing the batteries and verifying that the watch does indeed work, I cleaned it up and decided that the blue housing was gonna get an oven cleaner bath to remove the blue anodizing. I took the watch apart and discovered that the thing is pretty neat looking without it's clothes.
Of course the watch is probably a lot less durable without the protective housing and the exposed buttons are a bit more prone to breakage but I think I'm gonna wear it like this for a couple days just to see how I like it. The housing screws were left in just so I won't loose them but I think it kinda adds to the watch's Frankenstein/Steampunk funkiness.
