    any big new G-Shocks I should look at

    Hey Now! I've been away from the forum for a while. I still have my dream that Casio will one day return to making larger G-Shocks (like the size of my DW-8140's)

    Anything big and new available?

    Casio...if you are listening...I would pay astonishing money if you would create some sort of ultimate super G of a large size with Frogman type build quality and exchangeable resin bezels and straps...lots of black resin and gold plated buttons please...oh and waveceptor, it must be big and chunky with solar power.

    I swear if I ever win the lottery I will have someone create such a watch for me!

    Count me in too (uh... except not the "astonishing money" part... I might be able to manage "mildly surprising money" though ).

    You could shell out some "astonishing money" for a Dawn black Frogman. Gold case back and buttons, lots of resin, and solar power. And strap adapters would give you the choice of many various straps, from both Casio and other vendors. No waveceptor yet on that model.

    Any bigger and they might start to look silly, if the display area remained the same - which it generally does.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Hi Carrot,

    How is life? Long time ago, but I haven't forgotten you. Is your house still in one piece Check what I got a few days ago:



    I think the only real BIG G-Shock's at the moment are the Frogman. There is a new one comming out soon (Blue Masters model if I'm correct). Not my cup of tea, but I think you will like it. If you order one in time, you don't have to pay the double price you now already have to pay for the Dawn Black model.

    Cheers,

    sjors

    Not new, but if you don't have a Raysman you might be interested in getting one. It's larger than a Frogman.

    Ha ha Dave,

    The Robot on my Tee would be a good driver for your bike. That bike indeed looks like a Chunky monster.

    Hey DJ:
    I second that the Raysman is big and juicy bigger than Frogman. Definitely has some size on the wrist. Awesome watch
