    Anyone collect (not wear) some G's?

    ...I am on a Riseman roll lately and just picked this M.I.B. up. LOVE the original Riseman DW-9100's and will probably keep this baby like new since I have a "Sky Tramp" first model to wear already. Happy Friday -Ronbo

    Yes, I own over 30+ G-Shocks and I only wear like 4 or 5 of them. The rest I have on display or in storage.

    I currently own 7 Gs since I started collecting about 2 weeks ago with 3 more incoming. I only use 3.. the rest are in display. When I see a watch that I really really like.. I would buy 2! One to wear and one for storage / back-up. Example: I will not wear my MIRO Mudman till I get another one. I guess this is just me...

    Regards to all & have a good weekend!

    I tend to wear the collectibles, but not in hard conditions, I wear them in the same way I would wear an Omega or Tag.

    i got pretty much of old g-shocks and mostly i'll wear the dw-5200 cause those show up alot more than dw-5800 or dw-5500 or dw-5400 or dw-5200 gold version or dw-5000 and the dw-5200 can be replaced but the other ones are harder to replace them and what is the point to wear it and ruin it and can't be replace.

    New or old G's I wear them all. I wear them out in a casual manner but no hard conditions. I believe in keeping them all like new

    +1. I believe every wristwatch.. no matter collectible or not.. deserves at least 1 wrist time... 1 day.. 1 hour.. 1 min or so. As much as i like to collect.. i wouldn't want to collect one that doesn't suit my wrist.

    I've got around 20 G's, I wear all of them. I'm not really protective about them either. They were built to take a beating. I do however try to be as cautious as possible with all of my other (steel cased) watches. The G's are just there to be used without any limitations

    For me, watches are for wearing and enjoying.
