Can't believe how my watch tastes change, about once a year. Now I'm selling off all my mechanicals and I'm into quartz! Not just any quartz -- bold, sporty quartz like the all yellow Nixon Lodown. I was looking for a yellow G-Shock and found this one instead, a black/orange GLX150-4. I've had 60/40 luck with Casios in the past, but I'm liking this one, it's just offbeat enough for me.
The shiny orange strap was a surprise, as is the non-matching strap holder loop, which is more of a pale orange/peach color. The buttons work very smoothly, not like the Mudman I sold because they were too hard to push. The tide on this one is off, I had to mess with it quite a bit to get it correct. It's good that I can mess with it though, because the Lodown tide can't be changed.
This one wears pretty big on my 7.125" wrist but I'm wearing it every day. I leave it one hole bigger than normal and surprise, it doesn't get hot at all under there, not like my GW-9100 that is awful to wear in the summer.
BTW, the contrast is not good when the light gets dim, just when you need it most. The reverse display is backed by silver or something, so it gets too light to read when the lights get dim. C'mon Casio, you've been doing this for decades, time to figure out how to make a better display!
Anyway, here's some pics with a shot of the lume light on:
