Hello there G Shock community.after collecting a fairy decent size vintage and basic modern G Shock collection as well As JDM upmarket goodies GWF frogs and GW 5000.I was bitten by the minimalistic and simplified casio bug,pretty ferocious little bastard.being an avid fan of G,s since 84 I was always sportin either a 5200,5700,5600 and on and on.I pretty much exhausted all my G Shock options and wanted to stay within the casio family.after checking out you tube reviews on the most basic,and I mean basic i.e. F91,W59,F105,models my interest was sparked.however there was for me an adjusting period in regards to the size,but if you can get past that these babies have a lot to offer.
Loud alarms,excellent clarity of the segments.( I have two new 5600E,s where the segments almost fade into the Grey background.I am far from a hipster at 53 but there is a lot to be said for the simple is best or KISS theory.not to mention these are so light I slept with one on last night which believe me I am not a wear your watch to bed guy.I used to think my minimal casio rock bottom watch purchase,s would be the limited to something basic like origins 5600E,no lower than that.but after scratching this itch there is a whole new subterranean world of great little casio,s. out there waiting to get discovered.
