    Anyone else underwhelmed by G Shocks constant release of 'new colours'?

    Over the years I have received numerous email alerts of 'new' G Shocks, which aren't new at all apart from a colour change. A new dial,a new contrasting strap, the hands painted etc etc. Maybe I'm just getting older, but once I have a watch, just because they bring out a different colour does not urge me to buy it! Just me, right? LOL

    Doesn't bother me. Nice to have choice but I'm too old for bright colours.

    I've had a few GWN-Q1000 in different colours and I'd buy more.

    I don't care, works for them in terms of sales.

    Seiko, Rolex, Tudor,etc. are all doing the same.

    I want a new high tech sensor, all steel pro trek or some smart watch with solar charging.

    If nothing new comes, I'll stick to modding Amphibias :)

    I think it also depends on the model. E.g. the use of fashionable squares is different from functional ABC (D?) watches.

    Still even on the squares, STN and sapphire and other improvements would be nice to see on more models, or at least STN.

    Actually on a second thought it is probably a good thing to have many options. For example I love my Mudmaster, but I like it in some colors more than other. So I'm happy to have a choice.

    I'd be thrilled to see a completely "hidden" LCD display that only displays when called upon (a button push) that is otherwise completely invisible on an opaque face that also has solar charge capability. Currently the LCD displays are very obvious and although functional, detract somewhat from an otherwise "clean" watch face.

    It's only tiresome if new colors are the only things they come up with. So far I'm pretty happy with the current Baselworld offerings from Casio. Further, watches are innately fashion items. More choices in their appearance ultimately makes sense. I definitely do not mind if they have gshock square that match the color of my shoes or t-shirts. Some of us think of watches as bracelets that can also tell time.

    and you know the first thing that everyone would say if they stopped doing that?
    "why dont they have more different colours?? so over boring old black on everything" lol

    it makes sense tho, if a model sells well, of course ppl are going to want more colours and it works for casio too cos they dont need to take risks with the costs involving developing a whole new model (even tho, they still do it regardless if its a winner or not, just take a look at the gd200)

    id be sad if there wasnt plenty of colours to choose from, tho id just customise them to suit my needs but still, much easier when theres an off the shelf option.
