    Off topic Am i weird for not wanting to wear my non-special gshock watches?

    I dont even own those rare/vintage/ultra collectible or even expensive g-shocks

    i got a g100 and 2 ga100's not a single of them was wrapped around my wrist.

    i just like to look at them. It usually goes like this... I take them off the box, play with them for a minute or 2, then they go back inside the box.

    now im thinking of buying a g5600e, and i keep saying to myself that im gonna wear it daily, but i have a doubt that once the watch is already with me, it would have the same fate as the first 3.

    any brain doctors here? Can i still be cured?

    sorry for the ot, just venting i guess

    Everyone knows that collectibles should be kept in their original boxes.....

    You bought the watch with your hard earned money, enjoy it while it still lasts.
    Unless of course you are a millionaire.

    Where do "special G-Shocks" fit into this story?

    It sounds like the thread title could just as easily be "Am I weird for buying G-Shocks and never wearing them?"

    Another question is "exactly WHY don't you wear them?" Do you not like their sizes, or way they fit your wrist, or are you just trying to keep them in mint condition?

    I'm not a brain doctor and don't play one on t.v. -- but it does seem weird to me to buy g-shocks and not wear them. If ANY watch was meant to be worn, it's a g-shock!

    Of course, I guess some people who collect things don't actually use the things they collect. I guess there's nothing wrong with that. But just curious - do you wear ANY watch? If so, why do you not wear your g-shocks??

    Haha, i made the title that way so that others wont assume i own a vintage 1980's mint g shock or something. But i like them all, even the bulk. I guess you are right, Maybe im trying to keep them mint (which is the crazy part since they are run of the mill models). Im even looking at youtube right now on diy watch case videos.

    Hmmm since the chances of an alien species invading us are 0.0000000001%, are you trying to say that i should "NOT" wear them? :)) jk

    right now im conditioning myself to wear one of the ga100's... Then Make a diy watch box for only 3 watches... Then order the g5600e... Then put the g5600e, g100 and other ga100 inside the box... Then Leave wus forever. Lol... Cuckoooo...
