    w00t! Jam in Color arrived :) Anyone know what the case is made of?

    Bought as a beater, but I'm liking it a lot. I was just wondering if anyone knew what material the case is made of. It smells different to my other Gs (TC Froggie and new Mudman) so I assume it is a different stuff?

    I'll be using it for chemistry lab work and was curious to its chemical resistance. My
    only worry is screwing up the finish with some solvent that will eat it.. Then again, if the chemicals are on me then something has gone wrong :)

    Cheers,

    Paul

    Hi Paul,

    The casing and watchbands are made of Poly-urethane. It probably smells different becouse of the typical PU used, but as you probably know PU is extreme chemical resist. Actually I got som concentrated sulphuric acid on my clear DW-6900K, but you do not see any mark on the watchband.

    Cheers,

    I suspected as much, which is good news. I think I worry too much about such things, it's not like it's going to get exposed often or for long periods of time like say tubing or a bung.

    Thanks Sjors :)

    Hi Paul,

    On what kind of Chemistry lab are you working? I am a educated to be a Clinical Chemical Engeneer, but work as a Technical Praktical Assistant on a Chemistry Lab on a grammar school.

    Cheers,

    You don't have grammar schools in Australia, I guess...

    In the UK, it's an historical term that has persisted until the present day. Originally, they taught grammar (and mathematics) now they teach the whole curriculum.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Grammar (or Elementary) school in the US is typically Grades 1-6 (ages 6-12).

    Confused Re: w00t! Jam in Color arrived :) Anyone know what the case is made of?

    I thought Grammar school was the pre-University school (12 - 18/19). What's the right word for that type of school then???

    It's called here Atheneum or Gymnasium (the last one is with Latin and/or Greek). In modern Dutch language these school types are translated to English better known as "preparing for scienific education"

    Cheers,

    Hi Pablo,

    I thought Highschool was a collection of all levels. So Highschool prepares you for University? Right? Strange in English Grammar school has a different meaning than in the US.
