First impressions are I love it. Always liked the square Gs, been wanting one with a screw down caseback for years. This one was LNIB at a fair price so I treated myself for Christmas.
I really like the matte, monotone, stealth style. Perfect size. The polymer used for the strap is softer and more pliable than the cheaper G's. The buttons are very firm and beautifully dampened. Love that it says Made in Japan on the back instead of Thailand. Is it really made in Japan? I guess we'll never know.
Speaking of the caseback:
The DLC finish with laser-etched (I guess?) markings is pimp.
My only complaint so far is that the buckle is very basic, not even branded, and doesn't match the rest of the aesthetic. It should be boxier. And would it kill Casio to DLC it?
But overall, it's love. This is a keeper.
Big thanks to Thunder1 for reaching out to the seller on my behalf.
If it thinks, it stinks
