    Confused Silly Circle on a G-SHOCK or is it? What do you think?

    I was just browsing the ending auctions on EBay and noticed this different looking model.

    I copied this photo from it.

    The right circle appears to be slightly out of place

    Does anyone have this watch and what do you think?

    That circle annoys me as it looks like it has no purpose:-S

    Some thoughts...

    I'm not familiar with that model, but here are a couple of thoughts.

    1.) The LCD screen does do something under that circle, but it was empty in the fraction of the time that it took to take the picture...in other words, the screen was cycling through something at that instant. For example, with a 1289 module, you could take a picture of the watch at a certain time when all the circles were blank couldn't you?

    2.) Perhaps the area under that circle only comes into play for certain functions.

    If someone is familiar with that model, I'd be interested in hearing about it, or if we knew the module number, we could find out exactly what that circle does.

    I had a similar model. If the EL is activated to flash on the hour every hour a symbol appears in the circle to remind the wearer that that feature is activated.

    Its supposed to indicate when the Auto EL is turned on.

    This is a G-7600 with module 2957

    Greetings All,

    Ozzie what a sense of humour you have:-D :-D :-X

    I'm sure you remember the circle from these "classic rare" NEXAX models that featured the same silly circle. I'm sure you seen them before.







    I think the feature looks just as good there as it does here. With as much purpose as those Master of G models.
    I'm sure premier world enjoyed the publicity though.:-D :-D

    By the way guys, these photos are from yahoo, so please don't ask if I was lucky enough to own them.

    'Classic rare'? I've got a red one of those (wearing it now, as it happens), and had no idea it was rare (or classic). I know a shop in Poland that still has them for sale. And what is NEXAX? Maybe you were referring to one of the other models in your pictures.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I agree Paul -

    It seems as if it stick's out.

    I think a triangle would have looked better:-D

    Wink Re: Silly Circle on a G-SHOCK or is it? What do you think?

    That circle is just the Flash function icon. A star appears when activated. You'll find them on a lot of DW-003 and even DW-002 models. Actually a classic G-Shock design and nothing new. This ring can be found on either side of the module. Here you see it left, but I believe to have seen it right too.



    Cheers,

    Hi Sjors -

    I think the model was supposed to be NEXAX original inspired so that put the ring on the model.

    The original DW-002 and 3's are such awesome watches
