looks great, Stu - I hear the new negative displays are much better than the older ones - can you tell a difference?

Definitely a lot brighter and clearer in my opinion and the light on it is something else so here are a couple of q&d iphone pics.

Really nice. I can't decide if I should buy one now or wait for future colorways.

Awesome and thanks, Stu. This might be the suitable work-replacement for my dearly loved but departed Mudman that I have been looking for.

Looks like someone at Casio got the memo on common definitions for the word "vibrator".

I was wondering if they were going to catch that or not.

Anyway, the gray one has really caught my eye -- as soon as these show up downstairs I'm buying one.

If you can, share a little of that goodness with a Canadian DWC brother, Adam?

No problem, James. I don't think they're here yet, but I'll check on my way out of the office today.

dshap, the RRP for the UK is £95 but they have not hit these shores yet so I had to buy mine from a Parisian seller on Amazon and with postage they came to just over £100 each.

What is the size on that? It looks pretty large....



On a side note - @Adam, is a new D&R G-shock scheduled for 2013?

I'm hearing conflicting reports. One highly placed insider told me that Casio is done with Dee and Ricky, yet the rumor is that they're going to do a yellow version of the GA-110. :shrug:

Whatever the case may be, I'll let you guys know as soon as I hear something concrete.

Size wise its pretty comparable to a Gulfman but does sit higher which I don't have a pic of but here's one next to my Gulfman.

Of course all the G-Shock addicts on WUSsy are clamoring for the original "vibrator" models, since they're convinced that they'll be worth more. :rolleyes:

Are these Solar/Atomic? Doesn't seem to indicate anywhere on the watch that they are.

Please tell me these can be just battery powered. Ugh.

Oh yeah these are looking cool!
I dig the vibe.
I miss my Silencer G, but the vibe was ok, always wanted more vibe action.
