I got this, unusual for me, Casio G-Shock DWX-110M Extreme. (It was cheap as it was advertised for parts etc but it said it worked fine, which it seems to do so far)(Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)It reminds me of starship troopers... (I am attaching some information from a Casio wiki)This was introduced in 1999 and has a low temperature capable LCD (-20C)The LCD is clear and unusual in that it appears to be made from thin shiny silver foil. Bluish green light.It works well. I gave it a clean and removed some paint stains it had. I used alcohol and the ultrasonic cleaner to clean it. It is supposed to have anew battery. Inside the glass there is a tiny piece of dirt or from a leaf that I may have to clean when I get the desire/courage to open it up. It is not blocking anything, so it can wait. (Image removed from quote.)It has a shiny SS bezel protected with a rubber case.(Image removed from quote.)Old style(Image removed from quote.)Smaller than the GA100 (Image removed from quote.)
I grew up a short walk away from a Timex (pronounced Time-X) factory in a middle class suburb of Toronto, Ontario. I'm talking 35+ years ago now. My first watch, and probably the next 2 or 3, were all Timex. The ones my parents bought me were all tiny mechanical's. They had a white painted face with black markings and hands. No fancy luminescence with these watches. The case was a single layer chrome plated brass and the 'crystal' was domed glass that seemed to want to smack into everything. The watches were resistant to nothing, and anti-durable. The bands were black synthetic leather of some sort. They were almost as loud as a wall clock ticking away.I was lucky to get a year out of one of these watches before I broke the crystal, out grew the band, or it seized up from having too much moisture in it. They always turned my wrist green once the chrome plating wore off. But they were less than $10, so it wasn't a hardship to get a new watch every year for my birthday. Timex watches were so prevalent, if you had a watch that wasn't a Timex, you stood out. A friend in school had family in Japan and they often sent gifts over. He had a Seiko watch, and the best fireworks...And then came the first digital watches. I'll never forget the red LED displays that you had to press a button for them to illuminate. They were so dim you couldn't read them in sunlight. And they ate batteries like they were free and easy to change. Those were the best!
