GXW-56-1AJF AKA the "King". I figured what collection is complete without at least one negative display G-Shock? Then when I received it and wore it I got the answer: MY collection WAS complete without a negative display! I knew buying it that they're hard to read but I wasn't ready for how bad. Not only that but you have to contend with the glare which makes it twice as hard. The only time it's easy to read is in the dark with the EL on. I love and wear the big lug due to it's size, red buttons and red module protector but I'm almost certain it will be the only negative I'll own.
probably shouldve rephrased the title to "least worn, but cant let go". anything i dont like i sell, no point in holding on to it when you hate looking at it haha
i actually dont wear my 9000 muddys because therye too small! haha tho i like them alot, def. the perfect beater G, tho i have the jammin camo versions, one was atually a beater which has retired to the leisure life and the other im trying to keep in good condition since they look good as a couple ;)
i have a couple 9550 gmix's that i probably could sell since i dont wear them much at all but they have such a cool band (and i doubt i could get anywhere near what i paid for them)
MTG-900, This is NOT metal, plastic made to look like metal. Don't be fooled. Just sayin'.
I have the predecessor to the M900 and wore it as a daily driver/beater for quite a long time. Look at it...beat up all to hell. You can't kill the darn thing, it keeps on running despite the abuse.
Been sitting in the sun on a window sill these last few years, neglected. Why?
Gotta be honest here....Of the over 80 G-Shocks I own, it is my least favorite. It has no friggin' Countdown Timer! I need a countdown timer in any G-Shock I wear. Strike one.
The bracelet sucks. It feels cheap and flimsy, part plastic, part hollow link metal. Just plain junky. Strike 2.
Ugly, colors never have matched and it has only gotten uglier with wear and tear. The paint has worn off unevenly, the links are 4 clashingly different colors....beige, grey, dark grey and silver. Strike 3, you're outta there.
I hate it. But have to give it credit. It has never missed a second of time in all these years.
Still on original battery, never opened up. The auto-light still works brightly and it even sync'd itself last night so it is perfectly on time.
My automatics can't compete with that kind of quartz Casio accuracy. Too bad it looks like a wet mutt just in from a swim and feels like the worst Timex ever made.
Some of those are not perfect G's for us, but still they can show us the exact time and have the looks or even do deskdivings and eat oil and dust while replacing a turbo and intercooler in a car.
There's a watch in my pocket and it's hands are broken, the face is blank but the gears are turnin'.
So G-Shocks that are in worst conditions compared to their stablemates also count? LOL. Because I also have a Riseman that I don't quite hate, but it looks like it has went to Heck and back. And it still keeps great time too!
