Cool. Thanks, Chris
If someone tells you "There's no such thing as a stupid question", have him list a watch for sale on WUS.

I think they look terrible - about time one of you sell your 'gently used' model already. I'd be happy to help you offload...

^^^I've been strangely attracted to these since I started this thread, but I keep telling myself "you do not need another watch...you do not need another watch"!!

These pictures are not helping me stick with that thought though.....

I caved. eBay has 20% off for about another hour, so snatched one for about $254.00 with free shipping from Japan Media Store.

The 001. I'm a sucker for a bargain. Considered the gilt, but the Natos I already have will work better with the 001.

So everyone says this is made out of plastic.

This says aluminum resin, which I've never heard of, but sounds better.Image

Yeah, they got me too - had to see it for myself. Sadly falls short for me and already up on the Bay. I guess there are some standard GShock features that I miss like the mode beeps that chime a higher note when you're back on the main menu and no bezel clicks. I dunno, I'm just not feeling it. Took some pics anyway.

I'm assuming it is a plastic resin / aluminum powder mix. This would give the appearance of metal and some of the durability, with an easier case forming process. It certainly looks good in the photos. Case lines look more crisp than a typical pure resin G-shock.
