    Gnus, what happened to your original G-200D?

    Sadly, I lost a bunch of older models I had during a move a long time ago. Now, I'm just going through the exercise of cataloging all of the G's I've had the pleasure of owning and couldn't for the life of me figure out what this one was.

    The early 2000s was a wild era for G-Shocks. We all know most of the vintage models from 83 to the 90s. We all know the models from recent years. But at least for me, I wasn't that familiar with the models in the early 2000s (2000 - 2010), except for a few (like the GW300). Seems to me in that period there were a lot of strange models, as well as strange model numbers too. Casio seemed to be a bit lack of directions and just made whatever they wanted to make. Some models got hardly any popularity (such as this G-200 here), and probably just Japan or Asia releases. If it weren't for sites like mygshock being so thorough in documenting these models, many of them would probably be forgotten.

    As I remember reading in older threads, there was a crisis at some point in the early 2000s that almost stopped G-Shock production. That's until they regrouped and started to use more market strategies for their product releases. Many said that the release of the GA analog digital series had saved G-Shocks.
