The Kouter in Ghent, where we usualy park our car.It must have started somewhere in winter 2001-2002 I think. I live in the south of the Netherlands, far from Holland. This does not mean we live totally isolated here. From where I live you are in 45 - 60 minutes in the center of big Belgian cities, like Ghent, Antwerp, Mechelen and Bruges. When visiting Ghent I discovered a jeweler not far from where we usually park our car. They had a nice selection of G-Shocks. Most of them were the typical basic G-Shocks from that time and this one. For a moment I must have been in doubt, should I buy it? The price however was too hight for an impulse buy. I think it was probably around BEF1000 (around €120.-). This model was only for a short time on the market and within months you did not see anymore. And frankly, I think this was the only store I saw this model.
