    Need help IDing an older G-Shock (This is a long shot...)

    So in the early/mid 2000's, I purchased an analog G-Shock that I can't seem to identify. I know it's a long shot, but wanted to try crowd-sourcing it here to see if anyone can identify it.

    The details that I recall:
    • Analog
    • Resin case, silver colored
    • Shape was round(ish?)
    • Backlight was RED (I'm hoping this might be a distinguishing factor)
    • I cannot recall if there was an digital display, but I'm thinking there was one at the bottom of the watch face.


    Ring any bells? Any input would be great!

    The only problem with the AW500 is I don't think there's a light. You said early to mid 2000s, assuming 2000 to 2010. Need you to clarify 2 things:
    1. Is it big or small?
    2. Is it cheap or expensive?

    Definitely not the AW500. The thing about the light that was differentiating for me was that it was a red backlight; don't feel like I've seen to many of those. I want to say I purchased it around 2005. Size-wise, I think it was slightly smaller than the GW-A1000-1, with a similar shape. Price was around $150 I want to say? It definitely wasn't too expensive. Also, the face was very simple and clean; not a lot of text from what I recall.

    The 1st pic above is actually a model with pumpkin color watch face. The light is actually more orange than red. This model has many different color variations.

    No...the dial was super basic....just the analog with maybe a slim LCD at the bottom. Thanks for looking around though!

    This is the only picture of its light I managed to find in the net. As you can see Red LED for watch face and Green LED for LCD. I always thought Dual Illumination was a recent feature, but as proved below Casio had it since early 2000s.

    YESSSSS, this is it! Specifically, the one I had was the G-200D-1E model. Thank you @Steelerswit and @Watch_Geekmaster!
