    old love > new love

    Found this bad boy under the bed this week.

    I bought this G sometime in 2008 or so.
    Haven't worn this G for years.

    I mean this is a perfect designed G. Nearly perfect.
    Love the clean analog dial with these bold hands. Love it.

    It's not a big G, it's midsize G I would say.

    Equipped with a simple module.

    Only one point to complaine is the missing timer function.
    The Timer function is the most used function on a G for me.
    But can I live with that.

    I hope CASIO releases a new modern version of the G-100 with the same design in the future.













    Regards Phil

    On my wrist the watch is really comfy.

    Only the strap is a bit too short.
    But this is the case with most G-Shocks.

    well when I wore it on my left wrist on the inside it was really comfortable but now I wear my watches on my right wrist top the curved of the rubber as it meets the lug is now uncomfortable so I moved it on, but it could take a beating and did not show it

    Awesome photos Phil.

    G100 is a great G. I wear mine quite often.

    The missing timer is the only bad thing about it.

    Thank you Greg !

    I can't understand CASIO why the module is not equipped with a timer.
    Make no sense.
