100% agreed. Some food for thought: unfortunately, these days I find myself NOT yearning for new Casios more often than not, even if I consider myself an enthusiast and really would like to spend my money on cool new Casio watches. But the company’s current habit of avoiding risks and resting on old laurels isn’t exactly stimulating. Quite honestly, I don’t think Casio will return to its innovative spirit of the past, which to me was still alive as long as Kazuo Kashio presided over the company. If you consider that most of the cool features of today’s G-Shocks were invented long ago, then you get a sense of how much that innovation has slowed down. Well, hope dies last…I have found that I'm drawn to MANY of the discontinued models. I like this one! Very nice.
Several months ago, I picked up a GW-2500 from a fellow WUS member. Similarly, I bought a G-011D "Cube" from a shop in Australia (for a pretty penny).
It seems all the really cool models are discontinued!
Another cool vintage G-Shock that I picked up (as NOS) is the G-7800. If it came out today, everyone would think that Casio invented a new module with a bunch of cool new features. Except this one is OLD, and has a bunch of features that NONE of the new watches have.If you consider that most of the cool features of today’s G-Shocks were invented long ago, then you get a sense of how much that innovation has slowed down.
Interesting! I had not seen this brand of watch before. I just visited their site. An American company... though they don't say whether the watches are assembled here. Not that it matters that much to me... just curious.
i have both this one and the desert model that’s usually on sale for $249 before discount. To me it seems the afterburner model is better built than the desert tan (along with10 year battery vs 3 or 4 yr battery). I take full advantage of their discount (retired military). Both watches are easily read in pitch black room due to tritium used…though again, the afterburner model has better tritium. FWIW, my afterburner is still spot on to the second two months after I set it, without any type of atomic signal.Interesting! I had not seen this brand of watch before. I just visited their site.

How do you like it?
I like that they offer a 20% discount to military, LE, active, retired, and veterans.
Sweet ride and G tetsu😎😎
Happy hump day
thanks guys! looking fwd to getting back into ridingExcelent upgrade. 29 are much better imo. It goes over little bumps easily and are more stable as well. When i changed from 26 to 29 about 5 years ago it took me a few rides to get used to it, but now i love it. The only cenario i see 26 goes better is on downhill, 26 wheels are harder and more difficult to brake. Hydraulics are good also, now you have more control when slowing down on a tecnichal line. Enjoy in good health, brother!

how are you with using sclupey? could smooth out those ridges to tidy it up.I was really disappointed my DW-5300 bezel literally disintegrated. After much measuring with a micrometer and putting it into CAD, I was able to 3D print at least a dimensionally accurate rubber “replica”. So now I can wear it again and it not be naked!
I’ve never heard of it and had to google to see what it was. How would I use that on my 3D print? I’m unfamiliar with the process. Thanks!
its polymer clay so basically like body filler, lay it down as smooth as you can, let it set, sand it then finish with some buffing. obviously a painting step would be in there if you chose anything other than black.I’ve never heard of it and had to google to see what it was.
