    Displaying/Storing G's

    Simple question! What do you guys use to store or display your watches!? Links appreciated! As I find my collection growing I would like something g easier and more accessible than just storing them in their tons!
    Thanks all!

    - Nick

    G-Shock fans who have been on this forum for a while have seen my very expensive custom crafted charging/sync-ing rack. It was made from a coat hanger with a foam rubber pipe cover on the bottom bar of the hanger. Then for a nice finished look I put pieces of automotive wire cover over the side supports of the hanger. Of course these pieces are held together with black duct tape.

    The rack is held away from the glass by a piece of plastic that was in the box of an external hard drive I got for my computer. It works perfectly to keep the watches from touching the glass.

    This custom crafted rack hangs in a western facing window of our bedroom (yes, my wife of 50 yrs is a patient soul with me). At night my small collection of 7 G-Shock watches can sync with the US atomic time in Colorado. During the day the sunlight in the afternoon when the sun is in the west charges the watches. Thus my G-Shocks are always in sync with the exact time and fully charged. In the morning I can pick the one for the day and at night put it back on the rack.

    I think this is a great way to not only store/display the watches, but keep them in sync and fully charged. Cheers, Bill P.

    Here are some of mine.

    These cases are on eBay and they are OK - pretty good value. As you can see, they are not really designed with oversized Gs in mind! But they can be modified, and it does the job which is primarily to quickly and safely store them away in a securely locked closet when I'm away. These are only for the non-solars though - I recommend a clear lid case for solar models.

    My setup has "evolved" to its current but definitely not final state.

    1. Using the most expensive bag in the house. Easily my most space efficient method of watch storage at the moment.

    2. A set of BMX cranks came in a tin.

    Which is also where my spare resin, gaskets, and batteries are located at the moment.

    And then, the most "pro". A pelican case with quasimodo foam.

    During our recent move a friend from Idaho just assumed there was a pistol in there because "what else would you use a pelican for?", lol.

    I use this to check my solars. The only "order" is the the bottom left is for ones on "M".

    Yes, I am OCD. What gave it away?
