    Wink Thnk you G-Shock community for my new G-Shock :-)

    Well, It's a bit strange "Thank you" this time. I returned about a week ago from my vacation address in France. While I was home and getting settled again, I browsed the G-Shock sales forum about Monday or Tuesday week.

    My eyes pop-ed out of my head. A very nice and rare screwback model had been for sale for 4 weeks. The starting price of Price £45 was very acceptable, almost a steal. Not sold. In steps the price dropped to finally £25.

    The sales add has been watches over 450 times. The sale was withdrawn, so I expected that finally someone had found this beauty. I just got home from vacation too late.

    Yesterday I expected a package with a T-Shirt from Tokyo. Since the shop promissed me a special surprice, I asked Eva to report what is in the package if it might arrive. So in the afternoon I got a TEXT message:

    KIKS TYO: 2 shirts
    Tribe125: G-Shock...

    Well, I was expecting a T-Shirt, but not a G-Shock. Would it be...

    It was a gift from Tribe125, which I also got , because it wasn't sold on the sales corner.

    Actually I like this model very much. I have the normal display version too. So I do not only have to thank Tribe 125, but also the G-Shock community here on WUS for not buying this beauty. Thank you, thank you, thank you all very much!

    I have no photo of the actual watch. The complete IT structure of our school has been renewed and updated, so no photo software, no browser that work like I want, etc (and I have do dig through a huge pile of holiday photo's at home too), but here is the photo of the sales add :



    It's brother:




    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Sometimes the things that are not bold and cheapest are your favorite things to wear sometimes.
    The MTG is retired and the 5600 too. Right now, the only working G-Shocks that I use and enjoy are the Riseman GW9200-1 and the GW6900-1

    If I can own a Rolex Submariner I would. I know they are tough too, their homages are tough. Trust me.

    G-Shock MTG930DA-8V, G-Shock GW-5600J-1. G-Shock Riseman GW9200-1, G-Shock GW6900-1

    I had thought of sending it straight to Sjors without putting it on the Sales Corner (and almost felt guilty that I didn't), but a few weeks ago I spent over £1,300 on a Breitling... so I have to make at least a notional effort to recoup a few £s.

    For less than £25 it's not worth walking to the Post Office, but it is worth walking to the Post Office for a friend.

    And it's better that it ends up with someone who values it, rather than someone who gets it for next to nothing and might sell it again in a few months.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...
