The much awaited package from Rakuten arrived today, having spent a long weekend vacation at the Customs Office (and burning a significant hole in my wallet ). I collected the parcel from the post office on the way to work and here's a quick unboxing and review.
Uninteresting, Unimpressive to say the least. There was one outer paper carton and inside the carton was this paper G-Shock box wrapped in bubble film. There was a note of thanks from the seller. No Japanese playing cards or goodies.
Again, basic as it gets - almost barebones. Recycled paper box with no surprises whatsoever. The box contained the watch wrapped in a plastic, and a printed manual.
Overall, the unboxing left me with plenty to desire. The Rakuten experience thread has had much bettter experiences and I had my expectations set high. Personally I feel this could have been improved upon. I have seen some sub-$20 packages from A1iexpress with better packaging.
Getting to the G
I would be reviewing the G in post-2 below, but in a nutshell, it looks and feels superb. Here's a couple of quick shot including a wrist shot.
As many have claimed, this has to be Casio's best negative LCD ever.Amazing clarity. Wait for them review!
