I've ordered my first G in a long time, the GW9100-1 Gulfman. I haven't owned a G-shock in many years but now I'm back. It's pre-owned (watch store return) and got it for $100 shipped.
Does anyone limit themselves to just the solar models? I really have an attraction to them - there's just something unseemly about the thought of cracking open the case every couple of years for battery changes!
I'm aware that the capacitors in the solar models don't last forever, but they last a long time nonetheless.
