    Anything extremely special out right now?

    Are there any current G-Shock's which will stand the test of time, out right now? (Obviously you can't know, but still you have some ideas like me). Like the Love the Earth and Sea versions, or the 5000, or (imho!) the gw-s5600.

    Thinking back over all the famous g's out there, is there anything like that now? Current production g's. I guess the closest I can think would be any of the Mudmasters (but honestly probably not the top-most version), and the white Burton Rangeman.

    Doesn't have to be a special edition, just something that will stand out in years to come.

    Denim series? Doubtful.
    The "Red" series? Doubtful.
    Military fashion 5600s? Possibly.
    Mudmasters? Likely
    Rescue Red? Eh....
    Men in Sunrise Purple? Now this I can see....

    So what stands out now? What is on your radar?

    Interesting. I have the GA shown there and it's easily my least favorite G. It's extremely comfortable but I don't see it as a "lasting design/colorway" - just one that'll slot in a long list of g-shocks. I've mulled that other one for a long time but never bought. Black and orange is... kind of my thing. (And I find it ridiculous there's no orange mudman [9300]...)

    So what's extremely special about these two to you?

    If you literally meant "current production" ones, note that production of all sunrise purple have stopped, though right now they are still easy to get.

    I think only squares, 6900 and frogs have really gone on to be iconic models, so it'll be hard for any model to be at that elevated status. Personally, I can't see anything else gaining the same status down the track

    True. I really meant anything within the [still easily available new], I suppose.

    It seems like Casio is churning out models in a bunch of colorways, and a bunch of fashion type watches, that will not be interesting even so far away as next year. That's too bad!!

    You wouldn't put any of the Mudmasters up there, possibly?
