Today's article is the second and last article which I wrote during my vacation in the East Cantons. Of course a lot of photo's were made in in the Ardennes. Some photo's were taken from the web, or are screen shots (I guess it's obvious which ones these are) and also my friend Bleaphead made some great photo's of me wearing the GW-M5630A, while he was Barbecuing. Thanks Bleep and thanks GShockNL!. Enjoy reading!GshockNL, the Dutch G-Shock promotion Facebook page, organized a photo competition. The prize was great. A GW-M5600A, of the Rising Red series. You had to post a photo of “a cool G-Shock”. At the time I noticed it, there were not many entries. I thought I should take the chance and try. As you probably know, I have this model already in my collection, but wouldn’t it be great if I had one to wear. I think it is publicly known bright red and yellow are my favorite colors. And since my G-Shock budget had dried up to the bottom, I could use a little help here.
special Akira 30th Anniversary models, which had finally arrived a week earlier. If I had a bigger budget, I surely would had even gotten a second Kaneda model, but these were very, very expensive. As I had figured out (with help of many friends) all the details of these watches, I pretty much find, especially the Kaneda model, very nice and surely one of the coolest G-Shocks in my collection (thank you Terry, for talking me into this).
One of those pics that pops up every time is from a commercial photo session for G-Shocks in 2011.
Stab magazine knows how to keep you focussed on the featured products, by leaving (almost) all disturbing elements away (The photo below was actually only for the backpack, not the "Albino Panda" G-Shock).my CP-Holder watch stand on my “usual” garden table. This watch was so full of cool details, picking one of those details, would just do not just on other details. That was about what I wrote as the description of my photo.
WUS, I sometimes post there or give a comment, specially when I disagree on a topic or when people have no clue what model they have. The only group I am relative active in is a group founded by some Panaristi. These guys are more down to earth and that group is not that hectic as many others. Actually, pretty comparable with the G-Shock forum on WUS. A little post on some of the groups got me several more likes. In two days I was way behind #2, but I was in the top 3.
Bottom right, it's your author on the faders of the SFX.
Boulettes à la Liégeoise at the Brassery d'Achouffe. Very delicious and probably enough calories for half a day serious mountain biking.
And, of course, the famous delicious beers from Achouffe.
“Original G-Shock DNA”, Casio means with this models that still have the same shape as the original DW-5000C from 1983. The GW-M5610 is the latest 7th generation and the GW-M5630A is a special version.
The GW-M5610 it already the 3rd generation Waveceptor model (“Waveceptor” was the name Casio gave to the models that were capable of receiving Atomic Time signals). The GW-5600 was only 3 band (2 Japanese and the US transmitter), The GW-M5600 has a 5 band receiver, and the GW-M5610 is a little update with a 6 band receiver, good news for those who want a 5600 style atomic watch if you live in the reception area of the Chinese transmitter. The watch is powered by high quality solar panels, that already produce enough energy in relative dim light situations (in home, office, etc.). A large capacity storage battery can store enough energy to keep the watch going for many months in total darkness.

I am ahead of my schedule and I have put a lot of time in this article (probably over 20 hours). Therefore I might skip next weeks article, as I have planned some articles for the very end of the year and I want to enjoy a bit more of my summer vacation.
