the less available something is, the more desirable it becomes.
i guess that's why hunting for NOS treasures is such an excitement.
here's what i found recently: the X-treme G-LIDE DWX-100.
guessing from G-PS and the 25th anniversary G-shock magazine,
this watch was released in 1998 as the 1st in the G-Lide series.
1) the asymetrical design, ala frogman, of course attract attention right away. the function, other than time, are stopwatch, timer, and alarm. it's a pretty basic module. also the 5th button is not dedicated to light only. in stopwatch and timer function, the 5th button is the start/stop button; and the light is moved to the 4 o-clock position button. in time keeping and alarm function, the 5th is the light button.
2) given the age, the strap has discoloration, and now looks different from the bezel
3) the left buttons are also not similar, between the adjust and the mode button
4) the plastic buckle
5) WR20bar -- old style
ok...have a great weekend to all
