Casio G-Shock G-8100 Black

The Casio G-Shock range is popular worldwide, but some designs are less common than others.

Today's model of G-Shock, the G-8100-1 is not particularly common in Europe (as a fellow watch fan pointed out to me today). It has a much squarer design than the usual G-Shock models, and has a more integrated plastic case and strap.

It uses a round inverse LCD display which is split into two segments. The top half has the date, and the day part uses a small dot matrix array. There are also dots around the edge that fill and empty with the seconds (ones on the left, and 5s on the right). The bottom half of the display is the time showing 5 1/2 digits.

The watch has a QW-3078 module, and the front says it is a dual illuminator model. It has all of the normal G-Shock modes including world time (48 cities), multi alarm (x2 + a snooze alarm) , timer, and stopwatch . The illumination is through an el-backlight triggered by the big silver front button.
