    Cool Unboxing: GWF-1000RD-4JF

    I originally posted this thread on WUS. But since I am also quite the active member around these parts I figured why not post it here too, may help sway some people to make their decision and get one too . So, here's the better late than never:

    After three weeks of waiting and constant wondering whether I have made a big mistake or have scored big time instead, and just when I have started forgetting about it, suddenly a package came knocking at my door. Well, not exactly, since the guy actually showed up during a date today to deliver it to me. Quite a surprise! I was enjoying a Chinese traditional massage along with my girlfriend when he called and said "I can deliver your stuff there if you want to." Of course I can say nothing else but yes, yes and yes. This one was held by Customs for quite some time, and unsurprisingly the original cardboard package it was sent with, along with the original receipt, is nowhere to be found. Thankfully the watch itself is in pristine condition |>.

    Having seen quite a few JDM unboxing threads recently I decided to take some photos with a better camera than my usual fruity shooter (a BlackBerry). Well it's not much better especially with my poor camera sk1llz, but it's 4 a.m down here so this is the best I can do right now. This watch deserves to have only the good pictures of it taken!

    Without further ado, let me introduce you to my not-so-little friend:

    The cardboard box containing the package is lost along with the receipt. Thankfully the bubble wrap probably gave the Customs guy second thoughts! :-d

    Hmm... I wonder which G-Shock uses this module? :think:

    A G-Shock in a leather box? Never saw something like this before to be honest! :-s

    All I can say is (was) WOW!!!

    I don't whether it's my mouth or the Robotic Frog's mouth which is gaping wider due to excitement...

    A close up shot of the "Homescreen". I dunno, I just like to call it that, maybe because these are smartwatches (akin to smartphones)? :-d

    A shot of the beautiful blue EL. Casio should make more of these - blue is always friendlier to the eyes IMO (except when it's a BSOD :-d).

    Well, I originally posted those words maybe a week or two ago and a lot has changed since then I got the GW-1210BJ this week and am waiting for a Seiko Black Monster (SKX779).
