    The Past two days

    First of all, Sorry my bad English

    But I would like to share with you, the story of my past 2 days.

    This story begins ("not with once upon a time")...but when...

    Well almost everyone in this forum knows that when its time to wait for a package, difficult times are near even worse when you receive this update on your order from japan saying that your watch was sent to USA by mistake when you know that what is coming in your direction are a pair of onkyo speakers... this was my story back in a while

    The first day begins with a letter in the morning saying that the speakers are at customs for me to pick up, .(and my watch where is my watch)

    First thing in the morning was call the customs department and telling them that this package was a mistake and that it should be returned to sender, next go to work... after work, a trip to my friends G shop to see if I could find a G that could put an end to my misery, I was feeling desperate.

    I found a GW-5600E that I was looking for and reserved a watch he said he was going to pick up the day after a DW-004 after seeing what model it was on the web...because it's not that easy to find a G in Portugal as it was in New York where I have lived before.
    So I bought those two watch but I was thinking in the other watch yet to come...


    So I went home thinking about a lot of possibilities my friend from the shop said to me that I could try to arrange me a watch that i found out that I liked it when he saw one of my concept designs...

    ....So the next day, at the very same hour in the morning the mail brought a very good surprise the Frogman GG 25th aniversary was mine I just need to pick it up at the mail customs service put my vespa to the road and (after 79euros in Taxes and fees) The frogman was on my wrist...

    Very nice way to start a day then at 12:00 O´clock I get a phone call from my frind saying that I could pick up the Gw-004 that I had reserved the earlier day and that i had a surprise for me too...(Could it be the one I have wanted so bad)

    I actually put my vespa to the road again and Bought the reserved one.




    This DW-004 G-Lide double strap




    Green Jelly DW-9500 Us Open Surfing


    and the surprise was a

    DW-001 Black Beautiful all of this watches where in NEW CONDITION with Warranty.

    Me too. Looks like you got that at a good time before the re-issue draws attention to the originals!
    The Search function on vBulletin forums isn't very smart. If you want to search for a complete string in the G-Shock forum, or for posts which include multiple words, use Google, and enter site:forums.watchuseek.com/f17 into the search box. Then use normal google syntax after that to enter your search.

    Wow,

    What a great Pick Ups. €79.- tax I thought the €45 bills I got were high
    ... But you've got the FROG!!

    The other watches are great too! I like all of these. Nice to see how Bram's watch would probably have looked like 12 years ago.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Re: The Past two days

    I offered the white watch to my dad and the green one to my mom since my wife already had a green Open Surf and my dad was wiling to get one in white and he just loved the watch.

    But the Vintage Jason Stays here with me... ;)
