I know its all about light and angles etc but just shows how different the same watch can look, (im assuming the pics are yours).

 

Yes, these are my 'real time' pictures.

As part of the dial manufacture it is vertically brushed creating, being viewed at certain angles, & light conditions, an Trompe-L'oeil effect.

This short video explains some of the processes that go into dial manufacture...

 

HTH

Does it wear very big? The reason I ask, I am thinking of getting something fairly indestructible for my 8 year old grandson 

I recommend the Baby-G range as any other G-Shock will be too big IMO

This seems to get more wrist time than almost anything else I own; cant quite put my finger on it...

It's small, doenst feel (and isnt) expensive, it's on an aftermarket nato, it's my only hand winder; I just love it!

It's beautiful.

OK, treated my Estoril 300 to a bit of "bling" & quite a change for me as I usually wear this on a fabric or leather strap - Feel free to :thumbsup: or :thumbdown: but I like it! :clap:

I like it - I have a shark mesh waiting for my incoming Seiko 5, and just hoping it fits and looks good - I notice your bracelet has some adjustment links, I had to adjust mine with a pair of rusty snips!

I don't have my glasses on and thought that said 'Diningstar'  - I was like - that's the watch for me!

Wondered when the ‘National Geographic’ would emerge.

 

Lovely timepiece!

a Dremel

wait ...  I have one of those ...

too late - I had to use snips without any rubber on the handles, as the rubber absorbed some of the force, so there was a lot of kung-fu style shouting as I snipped each link, although it did not sound particularly oriental, more anglo-saxon

I do not think it will be a good idea for a kid with presumably puny wrists. Baby G as mentioned. Or just the classic F91w.

Good luck.
