At age 71 I am likely among the oldest, if not the oldest, G-Shock enthusiast here on the forum. I have been a watch guy since getting my first Omega back in 1968. Since then I have owned some nice watches and still do. However, I must say that my G-Shocks, all solar/atomic models, are among the most fun watches I own. I bought my first Casio, an F-200 back in the 80's as a Saturday watch, and have not owned another Casio until a few months ago. Now I'm hooked! Cheers, Bill P.
