Me a the shop where I bought this Jason in a mall at Machida, Tokyo, Japan.Overall, the watch has an unique look. When looking at it, the story about the prototype seems very plausible. I pretty much like the Jason models, but I can’t say they are beautiful. I rather say it’s beautiful because it’s ugly. It’s a kind of the Chihuahua of G-Shock. Not about its size of course, A Chihuahua does not deserve a beauty price, but yet, a lot of people like them. The watch wears pretty comfortable, thanks to the wrist rest that keep the watch in place, no matter what you do. The watch is very light (68 grams according Casio), so actually you hardly notice it on your wrist. The resin used for the straps feels relative soft, almost rubber like. The straps of my old DW-001 feels much stiffer. I do not know if this was originally so or if this is the result of it being 16 years old now. I’m happy Casio followed the advice of hat pop star in 1994. The Jason models are too much fun to be kept as a concept model and I hope that Casio will release more G-001 models in the future. If possible, I would love an Atomic GW-001 too.
