    Wink Today's Challange

    I took yesterday 8 dead G-Shock's to school, to change a battery in some lost moments. Today there were more experiments, but I thought there would be some lost moments too. I found 11 dead or near dead G-Shock's yesterday evening.




    It took me 5 hours to change them all. The DWX model was the most tricky. The DW-8300 and DW-8140 were the easiest.

    Here they are all set to the DCF77.5






    As a bonus, there was a class in a classroom, where I needed to set up an experiment for the next hour with very enthousiastic pupils, who everytime yelled "Hi Sjors". After a few times, I thought I should film this



    Cheers,

    Sjors

    So the two on the far left ( DW-8300 and DW-8140 I assume) aren't the same model? They look identical.

    Nice video! Hi Sjors! And also I now know how Sjors is pronounced!

    Watches are frickin evil!

    Hi Hoochy,

    The two models in the far left are indeed two identical watches, both a DW-8300 Heavy Metal (also called "Stargate").

    The (awesome) DW-8140 is seen in the second picture on the far right. It was a great pleasure to set the time on that one and test the EL backlight.

    First of all I thought I liked to share that class of kids (they are around 12 years old). The second thought was the same as your remarl. I get sometimes mail or pm's how to pronounce my name. Well, here about 26 kids are saying "nHoi Sjors" (Hi Sjors). Actually a few years back someone in the US liked the name Sjors (as it is written), but wanted to know how to pronounce it, because he wanted to name his son that way (his wife was pregnant). I actually think that it's not ronounced much different in Dutch as you will pronounce it in English.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Hi Jeff, It's a GL-100V model. They are huge and very nice. This teacher could laugh about it, specially when after the kids all yelled "Goodbye Sjors" I told that I would come back for some other equipment and the kids all yelled, "see you soon, Sjors".

    Hi Hoochy,

    I must remind Syors, as it is asked me often. I always wrote Shors.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Hi, Sjors!

    I wish that I had a teacher as cool as you when I was in school, Sjors...
