    Summer watch arrived - G-5500TS-9ER

    Hi,
    two days ago my summer and holiday watch arrived. For summer I often buy something in yellow. Last summer it was the Christopher Ward Kingfisher Diver. This year it's the G-5500TS-9 - the 'TYO' edition with the special backlight image.
    First of - some pix (shot from my balcony):


    As you can see it's a really bright lemon yellow. Just perfect as a summer watch.


    It's my first G-5500 - you kind of have to warm up to that particular design I think. What I really like is the very crisp display and the clean and uncluttered design. The writing on the glass is barely visible and contains only the basics: the four button functions, the battery and alarm, snooze, sig indicators. Except for that there's only the 'tough solar' and 'Casio' - nothing else. The solar panels look almost blck - the purple tint is only visible from certain angles. And the backlight image is really only visible when the backlight is turned on:


    The module is pretty basic but at least they updated it over the original G-5500 module. So now it shows date and day of the week on the main screen and has a 24hr timer. Still no current time in other modes however - but for a holiday watch this really ain't such a big deal. I don't need the timer on the beach - maybe only to prevent sun burns .


    That's it for now.

    Greetings, Sedi

    :thanks guys for the nice comments. The yellow is indeed something special - unlike other yellow G-Shocks I owned (DW-5600WC or GW-6900-9) which were more of a sunflower yellow without any green in it.
    Some more details about the watch:
    - it's not in the Perfect Search which means it isn't sold in Japan - despite the 'TYO' backlight image
    - the display test screen shows the 'RCVD' indicator which means that the module is a watered-down version of the atomic 3159 module used in the GW-5000
    - the test screen shows 3150 as module number - which is probably the basis for the 3160 module indicated on the back of the watch -> the 3150 is actually used in the Rally Timer Mudman which leads me to the assumption that Casio has based most of the newer modules (used in G-5500, G-5600, GW-5000, etc.) on the second Multiband-6 module that they released (the first was the GW-9200 Riseman with the 3147/3148)

    Really nice, congrats. Great pics!
    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.
