Congrats, Simone! This one is probably the most sought after Casio watch, even if there are other Casios which are more rare and/or more High-Tech.
So the ebay prices for such a timepiece are usually sky-high... :grin1:
But I may understand why: it is pure and simply beautiful and its high-tech "look" is not obsolete even after today standards.
Not to talk about old memories for many persons from the '80s, when at school a person wearing a Casio GM-10 was instantly...the most cool one... :grin1:
Thanks for sharing the images with us.
Regards,
Every watch should have its own story...consequently, a watch collector has to be a good storyteller :)

And i was lucky to grab it for a very very low price (some italians doesn't know what are selling) :oops: :secret:
I always wanted one but ebay is not a good place to buy a Casio GM...so the best way remains fleamarket or second-third hand store: miracle are always possible ;-)

That's in fantastic condition, and the thing that amazes me is how playable the game is. Definitely one of Casio's greatest.
