It is not unusual to see glossy white G Shocks these days. But this is a little different. Many of you will recognise this as the G-2000, but this is the 2001 Lovers incarnation and comes in 'Pearl White'.
So its not a glossy finish, more like an off white metallic finish. Those of you who own a Codename ADMA will know what I am talking about.
Anyway just picked up this retro beauty together with its Baby G counterpart (for the missus). I like it a lot - not just the colour. It's got a very nice weight to it despite not being very big. It's slightly bigger and chunkier than my DW-5700, wears a lot higher.
When Doug (FNJ) reiviewed this model on Youtube he seemed decidedly underwhelmed by it. I guess if you are used to wearing tidegraphs and solar and atomic technology then this is nothing special. But I am sad these G-2000s had such a short life span.
Oh, and somewhere out there is a Real Black G-2000 as well as a Dark Raven version. In fact if anyone has any other incarnation of this 'poor man's Frogman' - please show!
