Here is a G shock that I have always wanted due to its great looks. It is the DW-6100CF-8JF also known as the Python.
Finally managed to get this NOS watch for a good price. The Camo colouring really seems to suit this model.
The watch has some interesting features it has the usual alarm, hourly signal and 24 hour stopwatch modes.
In addition it has sunrise and sunset times which can be checked against any date.
The 'eye' on the dial points to the sunrise and sunset times with a flashing line towards the current time.
It has a temperature graph on the face which gives the temperature for each of the last 6 hours. You can also display the current temperature instead of the date in timekeeping mode.
The watch has a temperature record mode which records the last 30 temperature measurements. You can set the timing of these measurements in periods up to 24 hours, though the default is one hour.
This is quite interesting as you can review what has been happening with the temperature over quite long periods.
For illumination, surprisingly, it uses the wimpy light bulb system. Casio had long dropped this system when this watch was made in 2002 and it is a pity they could not have adapted the module to take the much superior EL system.
The watch is a pleasing 'old school' design, with a 'false' G button making it look like a classic five button model.
This watch was made in 2002 with Casio producing this camo model together with a jungle green camo model. It uses the later 1424 module which is a pity because this is not as good as the 974 module which actually shaded the 'night' hours in the 'eye' giving a quick visual look at the split between daylight and nighttime hours that day.
The watch is made in Korea as against Japan for the earlier models. Here it is next to my DW-6194.
Here it is with another famous camo model The Addict.
So I now have my two favourites from the 6100 series and I am really pleased with both, can't make my mind up which I prefer.
