    Rangemen, rejoice! The all metal GW-9400 has landed. What do you think?

    Currently only a full silver set is available. Three different colours of the bezel though - black, gold & silver. Found it on AliExpress, the seller assured me that all the engravings are present on the bezel and the clasp. It must be really heavy. Would you buy one anyway?

    Looks pretty good although I would like to see better pictures to ensure the lettering, finishing etc is well done.

    Mmmmmmmmmmm......................no thanks.

    The GW-9400 is light and supremely comfortable on the wrist, as-is. Putting a SS bezel and band on it will make it very heavy. Plus, no one knows what adding a metal bezel and band to the 9400 will do to its shock resistance protection. The GMW-B5000 squares were designed to be metal. The 9400 wasn't. So.....I'm gonna stick with the resin/cf straps and bezels on that one.

    (I am also curious what the metal will do to the Ranger's lug area.. Does it remove the (however small) issue of potential lug breakage? Or possibly make it worse??)

    Sectrely i hoped for the inverse of this, a metal body with screwback that accepts the default bezel and strap of the GW-9400.
    But then no-one wants the frogman anymore...

    Non Casio parts labelled 'G SHOCK'.
    Does that make them fake, therefore against forum rules?

    Just asking...

    Why? Rangers are tough rugged watches for Hazardous abuse. This seems, like a full chrome rock climbing dune buggy. Looks good at first, but it's not going to stay pretty after doing what it's meant to do.

    For some members here though -- like Steelerswit, and Kubr1ck -- they have so much inherent "bad-a**ery" that when they put on a bad-a** watch, the energy flows from them TO the watch, making the watch EVEN MORE bad-a**!!! Yes, it's a real scientific phenomenon that obscure mad scientists only recently discovered.
