Hi everyone, and welcome!
This is an auction for one Casio G-Shock - DW5000SL - Spike Lee - 25th Anniversary - Limited Edition Watch.
I bought this watch in 2008 shortly after it was released to commemorate the 25th anniversary of G-Shock watches. It is a limited edition collaboration with the movie director Spike Lee, and is almost identical to original DW5000 released in 1983.
One of the best features of this watch is its stainless steel screw back case, making it extremely solid (virtually indestructible)! It's my understanding that Casio no longer (or very rarely) manufactures G-Shocks with stainless steel screw back cases, so this really is a very nice and unique feature.
As you can see from the pictures, this watch has been used but is in really excellent condition. The original rubber watchband shows signs of daily use and has some very minor, superficial marks on the bezel and strap. The watch face has no scratches whatsoever, and the stainless steel case has one or two barely visible scratches. The daily alarm and hourly chime have never been used (apart from testing them) and the back-light was used very sparingly, so I predict that the battery will last for many years to come.
This watch incorporates the 1545 module, so it has all the functions you could ever need in a watch and none of the ones you don't (please contact me if you would like me to outline the various functions of the watch).
Unfortunately I do not have the original watch tin and outer packaging, but when posting the watch I will ensure that it is wrapped very carefully.
I can assure all potential buyers that as a G-Shock collector and enthusiast, this watch has been treated very carefully and has never been dropped.
Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Many thanks for viewing this item.
