I'm new to G Shocks (and watches). I got my first G Shock about two months ago. I only wanted one or just a few, and I already have 8, if that tells you anything. Much of the advice and observations around here have turned out to be very true for me. I think I read from someone that looking for the single perfect watch is not going to end in success, and I've found that to be true. Of my watches, I like all of them, but one doesn't totally tower over the others. I'm not even sure I could make a single perfect watch if you flew me to Japan to meet with Casio and have them make one to my specifications.
I like the idea of just one go-to watch I wear every day, but it's turning out that there are too many G Shocks that I like. I'm not exactly looking to "collect" them per se, I just want to have a stable of them for my wearing rotation. I ideally wanted the number at around 3 to 5, but I keep finding more that I like for different reasons. Also, being this new to G's, after I wear one for a few days, I keep discovering what I like the most about a particular watch and what I might like in another one.
All that said, if I had to pick just one, it's tough, but I'd probably go with my GD120CM-5
For my *one* watch, if I did it on paper I'd probably choose a smaller one since they tend to be a bit less noticeable for daily constant wear on my smaller wrist. I'd probably choose one with a front light button since I like keeping the side buttons for watch operations. I'd probably go with solar/atomic since I like the rechargeable battery and the ultra accurate time. However, I'm not making this choice on paper. This just happens to be the one that own that slightly speaks to me a little more than the others. It's hard to describe - I just feel like I'm home when I wear this one.
Get a GW-5000 and don't spend some more time in this forum because the more you stay here the more you will see different beautiful G-Shocks and your G-shock guardian angel will lure you to have some of them. By then you will be an avid parishioner of Cathedral of St. Ebay. So beware, this is a habit forming and it is not yet regulated by Center for Decease Control and Prevention so there's no rehabilitation to go if you fall into it.

LOL!! That is exactly how I amassed my collection of vintage Seikos. I can feel the draw from the G-Shocks now.
So as I've said before, I don't EVER see myself limiting my Gs to just one. Probably never less than 1/2 dozen at a minimum (in truth, I'll probably have around 12-18 Gs & Protreks even after thinning my collection to where I want it). But right now my "essential 1/2 dozen" would include my Maharishi MM, MRG-G1000B-1A, GW-5000, Rangeman, Titanium GWF-T1030A-1, and GPW-1000 (2A or RAF, or both!).
