Lots of respect for the "Casioak" in the arguably snobby watch community and there's tons of great easy mods that you can do for it to change up the look. I personally have the grey and all blacked one. There's the reason the sell out so quickly. Just my two cents as an avid watch collector.
Agreed

Just wanted to share a promo code that I found for Casio G-Shock's website: https://gshock.ca/

SAVE10 will get you 10% off on your order. Great way to save some $$ and get it for less than MSRP.

Cheers

Agreed, the mods are awesome!

I particularly like the look of the full metal bezels and straps

Can get pricey though. Just an FYI for those ordering metal bands - it's better to get a band that attaches directly to the bezel, as strain on the metal bracelet can potentially wear or break the lug holes in the plastic case

If a metal Royal Oak look is what you’re after (and let’s be honest, people buy the 2100 series mainly for this reason), you could just save yourself the hassle and pick up the Edifice S570D, which also has solar charging.

$295 from Casio but always sold out. Costco sells it online for $200.

That doesn't look remotely close to the proper CasiOak mods.

You are very much entitled to your own opinion but if you think this looks closer or better than the the regular G shock CasiOak to an actual Royal Oak I don't know what to tell you but maybe look again because aside for the band being completely different those buttons sticking out are ridiculous looking for this style watch.

There are AP Royal Oak models with similar buttons.

Yes, the band is different, but who cares? What’s the standout RO feature that people are after? The octagonal bezel. What are people always complaining that the 2100 models don’t have? Solar charging.

As much as I love the 2100 series G-shocks, the plastic face looks better with the stock bezel and resin band than it does with a cheap mod.

The costco shot is not a great shot. Look at the pictures of it actually on a wrist. For the price and function, I mean, it looks great.

This reddit thread is a good example: https://www.reddit.com/r/gshock/comment ... fss570d1a/

Thanks to daddyho24 (I feel dirty saying that). Sapphire too! Never knew about this model.

Thanks for the nod. If I could go back to 2007 and choose a different username, I would.

It’s last Fall’s model, so I suspect it will only become more difficult to find.

I was scouring the internet for stock a couple of weeks ago and was shocked to find it on Costco’s site.

It’s gorgeous in person and super thin for a piece of its design and shape. I’d say the picture in the Reddit thread you linked provides an accurate representation.
