Cool stuff Jean Michel, very nice.

Good to see a watch promoted in such a way, and is so adaptable to stand up to the rigors of both diving and combat.

very nice post, those are the best pictures iv seen so far of military frogmen and a G-shock.:-!

hoochy,

from owning a 9052 i say its very identical to the 9000 but just barely different enought to be able to distinguish the two. either watch is a good beater watch that never seems to get beaten no matter what you do to it..:think: :-d

Nice addition :-! . The DW-9000 is a great G IMO. Mine has the leather/nylon band.

It looks like I see an DW-002 JP model (with the orange buttons). Probably purchased directly from Casio. I found BTW esterday a Japanes article about G-Shock used in the ARMY.

Cheers,

Sjors

Hi JM,
Good to see you mate! Always good to see pics of Gs used as they were meant to be rather than as a fashion accessory on the arm of some rapper :-d

Some rappers live pretty tough lives too.
Such as getting attack by fans, walking their pitbulls, intense car washs with models, getting shot at, or car chase/crash with cops.:-d

Not to mention all those arm waving, and jumping during performance.

It looks like it's missing some pieces. Look at the red arrows compared to the green ones.

Hey Sjors,

I believe you are correct that they are metal. Looking at it, I kind of like the way the all black looks. But the contrast of the metal on the black looks pretty sharp as well. Maybe I'll have to be on the lookout for another 9000 so I can have one with the covers on and one with the metal pins showing :-d .

Now that I think about it, the DW-9000 I sent to shakyjake all the pins were missing. And it was one very similarto the one JM did his test on.
