“He who doesn’t honor the small, isn’t worth the tall”
(free translation of a well know Dutch expression).
I always had a bit biased thought about this model. The color combination looked a bit strange to me at that time. Gray looked a bit strange and Casio did not used this egg yellow (I believe the right description is Cadmium Yellow). In the past 10 years I have been tempted to buy this model many times. 10 years ago I was not acquainted with the DW-002 models. Maybe I would have bought this model much earlier if I had one of these in my hands. From the “Capsule Though” or “Nexax” models, the DW-002 has probably the hugest look.
my blog friend FUMI published a post, showing his then recent acquired DW-002J-9. I think I even shamed myself not having this easily to obtain model in my collection. I bought many pretty expensive G-Shocks over the years, but forgot about the basic models like the DW-002, DW-003 and DW-004, that started my collectors interest.
