Re: Thinnest (lowest profile) G-Shock with the 5th EL button (the one on face of the watch

Hello Stockae,
Hmm, I think it's splitting hairs when you talk about the 5 button models.

I noted that the dw-9000/9052/9050 models were smaller to my eyes than the g-2300 (et. al.).

I'm hedging my best here, but it might end up being some of the latest releases. For example, the mudman, gl- series etc.

Out of curiosity, I have to ask would it have something to do with the "under the shirt
sleeve" portion of the pagent?


EDIT: I shoud add too Stockae, that javy's site is very handy in that it lists specs for all their models prominately. I know when I shopped around, this made comparison of features very easy. Something the older "blue" g-shock site offered too; a comparison feature.

I am not 100% sure, but I think it could be the new GW-810 series. as you might know, I got two weeks ago the GW-810BXD and it measures exactly 14mm in thickness (including the shock absorbers on top, without them it's 13,5mm) - that makes it the flatest in my collection.

well I can't say for the G-2110 (although I believe the case is identical to the G-2300) but the G-2300 most definetely not. it measures 16mm on a resin strap and 18mm on the nylon/velcro strap.



regards, holger

I think the profile of the watch may make as much difference as the depth. Square-profiled watches are more likely to 'resist' shirt sleeves, bed sheets, or whatever.

It's the "Whatever" that complains the loudest about my watches :-D (sorry, couldn't resist).

I think all 5 button G shock's with the light button on top have the Capsule Tough construction or are even thicker (DW-8400 Mudman, Raysman). I won't considder the G-2300 thin. In the beginning I thought it was smaller and thinner than other G's, but it's purely the design. The dimentions are exactly the same as that of a DW-6900 Triple Eyed Devil.

This one ain't thin, but it is awesome looking;-)




Cheers,

Sjors

If you mean what I think you mean, I now have unfortunate images in my head... ;-)

Re: Thinnest (lowest profile) G-Shock with the 5th EL button (the one on face of the watch

iwhat's the thinnest (lowest profile) G-Shock with the 5th button for EL?

I did a little bit of research a while back & I think G-8000 is the thinnest 5-buttoner with the thickness of 11.2mm. However, I refuse to consider those 8000ers G-Shocks. :-D

The 2nd thinnest according to my info is a surprise: G-2500 at 11.5mm. Actually the overall size of that watch is not much bigger than a normal Baby-G, pix can be deceiving I guess...

BTW, long time first time... ;-)
