    Cool Error Impossible ! DW-290 !

    Hi watchseekers,

    Last day i watched the movie Mission Impossible (1996) and i saw Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) wearing a bulky watch that i though was a G-Shock, so i did some research on the Internet and i found out that it was a DW-5300, but when i took a close look to the scene when he was doing some magic tricks with a disk, i notice that it has nothing to do with the DW-5300 but rather it's a DW-290T.

    What a travesty. Who do we speak to about this unspeakable error?

    Cool discovery. I love the whole "watches in movies" thing but never noticed that myself. I'll have to order one now. Only $24.99 at Amazon!

    I have that watch, It was my first Casio (Non G-Shock) and super tough.Mine looks really rough as I beat the heck outta that watch but it still runs perfect and I've had it since 1994 I believe.

    Great catch. I wonder if it was just one guy who misidentified the watch and it just caught on or what. Can anyone translate the below image supposidly taken from a Japanese magazine?

    This reminds me of something I read about Monopoly. Most people play by the rule that you must go around the board and pass GO before you can purchase property. The official rule printed with the game has always been that you may purchase any property you land on even with the first roll of the dice. It is speculated that one person made this rule up after someone they were playing landed on Boardwalk or Park Place on their first time around the board. Somehow it spread to become a "rule" used more often than the official rule that hasn't changed since 1933.

    so you brought the DW-5300 thinking that's the one from the movie! I don't think you will be refunded!!

    Wow, good catch. Maybe there are two watches in the movie? Or is it this one the whole time? I realize it can be hard to tell from some scenes. I haven't seen that movie in ages.

    LOL! Not looking for a refund here. I still LOVE mine and I am still looking for a green lettered version in similar mint condition. Cheers-Ronbo
