Bday present for myself - GShock steel

Post by Danny_T » Fri May 31, 2019 6:21 pm

On my last day in Cancun I hit La Isla mall and came across the GShock shop and they were having a sale on everything. Saw this one. I’ve admired photos of it on FB and seeing it in the metal it looked awesome. When I tried it on I loved it. Perfect size and looks amazing on the wrist. Went with the black strap option as I prefer the contrast vs the all out bling of the bracelet version.

The negative display is sweet as well.

Model GMWB500-1

This model peaked my interest when I first saw it also.

Looks great on the wrist.

Great pick up!

I love these. They’re like a digital Genta watch.

I didn't like the all steel, because it's just too damn much of a good thing..
This rubber version is standing on the world. I totally dig this one!

Nice. Is the strap rubber, or more plastic like other G-Shocks?

It’s rubber.
I’m thinking of getting the PVD black one on rubber which has the traditional display (as opposed to reverse display on this one) sometime this year.

My thoughts exactly. They had both in the display box and I much preferred the rubber strap version and actually caught my eyes first.
