    PLASTIC buckles on a G?!

    For some reason I assumed all G shocks would be like my frogman in that their buckles would be metal, but I saw a pic of a 6900,and it looked to have a PLASTIC buckle- could this be true, or is it just painted black (still not preferable).

    Are there any other entry level G's that have plastic buckles anyone else is aware of?

    2300
    2500
    2600
    2900
    5600 etc?

    I believe a lot of DW-6900's and DW-6600's and several DW-002's having black plastic buckles, so have the Club-G's. I think thay are kind of special. They are pretty straong, although the german postal service managed to crunch one of a DW-002 once.

    I really can't stand the plastic buckle. One or two of my vintage Gs have had the plastic buckle and it feels very cheap, I switch it out for SS.

    The G-2900 definitely comes with stainless buckle. So do my G-2800 & G-7510.
