    New arrival!

    Actually, I got it last week but I havent had the time to post pics. Lazy night tonight so I decided to take some pics.

    I got a great deal on this. Nobody was interested in bidding so I got it for a $teal. I really like this model for its size and chunkiness. But I DONT particularly like the band.

    Can anybody recommend a stock resin G-Shock band that would work and look nice? Not a ZULU as I have plans for those on other watches.
    Any advice would be great!

    ...and yes I do plan on modding this one a bit. Any ideas on that would be cool too! All black with reverse display?

    Cool Re: New arrival!

    The DW-004's are great looking G's

    But I agree with you on that wrist band it is a little "old man stylish" type. I think that an DW-004 will always look best on the cloth/velcro type wrist band that also adds to its chunkiness!

    Here is original velcro/cloths for the DW-004:

    That's a cool DW004. Actually, I like the strap. It seems very well preserved, and so does the watch. I think you got a very good deal there.

    I used to have one just like that, traded it for my GL-7000. I still have the first G that I got which is my green DW-004. They are great watches as the TOD is displayed in all functions. Nice score .

    "Old man Stylish" indeed ! Just because it's got leather patches on the elbows and I've got the same doesn't mean that it's ............ Oh yes, I suppose you're right really.

    Excellent score 1540!!!

    It was love at first sight for me when I saw your G's pics.

    The band is a little off but strangely appealing at the same time.

    Looks perfect to me buddy!

    Congrats and thanks for posting those lovely pics!!
    best regards,
