    Not a G-Shock, but it is Solar Atomic, PMV65-2241 -Large images!

    It's not even a Casio, it is my new Citizen PMV65-2241; this is a large watch! I like its classic avionics styling, IMO it manages to make digital sub-display look natural on quite a classic looking watch. I love the design of the hands, they are all cool, but particularly the one on the battery dial. The orange LED back-lighting is nice too. For those interested, it seems to pick up the German transmitter just fine in my part of the UK.

    I didn't realise those were so large. How big is your wrist Luke?

    Nice pics.

    A little to cluttered for my tastes but Citizen makes a great watch for the dollar or pound or euro... whatever.. haha.. Enjoy it!

    About 17.5 cm, just under 7 inches. The watch is around 48 mm wide with the crown and nearly 16 mm thick. In terms of frontal area, it is very similar to the PRW1300, but it looks larger because the detail continues to the edge, so to speak.

    I like the ship's telegraph thingy at the bottom.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Of course you can use it. Thanks for the complements, I love taking macro-photography and product type shots, it is fun playing with the light.

    PM me and I'll send you a less compressed version if you like. Photo-bucket re-encode jpegs with more compression to get the file size down.

    Oh, and the RRP is something like 130,000 Yen, somewhat over $1000 dollars, I'm pleased to say I got it for around half that. This model is available only in japan, it is titanium with duratect treatment, the bessel ring is DLC plated and the crystal is sapphire.

    There is a stainless steel version which is available in the US, it has mineral glass rather than sapphire. That version is quite a lot cheaper.

    There is also another Titanium version which is DLC plated all over, I considered it, but I don't think the colour matches the style of the watch. I'd go for the Attesa version of the module if I wanted that colour.
