I am wondering this.
The MTG is retired and the 5600 too. Right now, the only working G-Shocks that I use and enjoy are the Riseman GW9200-1 and the GW6900-1
If I can own a Rolex Submariner I would. I know they are tough too, their homages are tough. Trust me.
G-Shock MTG930DA-8V, G-Shock GW-5600J-1. G-Shock Riseman GW9200-1, G-Shock GW6900-1
I started off leaning that way. After reading some intelligent debate from cal.45 it is no longer important to me. Atomic isn't important because syncing isn't possible here (Hawaii) unless i just want that feature for whatever reason.
Yes, I am OCD. What gave it away?
My solars get more wrist time. not because I'm worried about the battery but because I happen to like those models more!
out of my 15. 3 are solar (2 kings 1 gr7900)
I tend to wear my solars more as well.. cause it bugs me if its not on High charge. Medium bugs me, never had it on low. so on a nice sunny day, i wear one to charge it.
Although I only own/owned three G's (7900, GF-1000 and GWF-1000), I'll only consider the models with solar!
Have a great day, or night! ...
My first and only G is a solar/atomic, a GW-8900. I'll probably get a few more solar/atomics.
Most of mine are battery. It's mostly that I have a number of older watches. But I find the battery modules tend to be better than the solar counterparts.
DW-8200MS "Kermit in Smoke" Frogman
DW-8200F-4 Red Frogman
GW-200-2 "Navy" Frogman - modded
DW-5000SP "Bloody Project Team Tough mod"
DW-5700 with 5600EH crystal "Screwback Eric Haze"
I wear my battery powered models and my solar models equally. I have more battery models currently but I also rotate which model I wear daily
Citizen: Skyhawk Blue Angels Edition
Nixon: 51-30 Chrono
G-Shock: DW-6900 x3, DW-6930 (Basel) x1,G-001 x1, GA-100 x2, GA-110 x16 (2 Collabs: Maharishi & Eric Haze), GD-350 x2, GDF-100 x1, GD-X6900 x2, GR-7900 x1, GW-5510 x1, GX56 x2, Riseman G-9200 x2, Mudman G-9300 x2, G-9330 (Rising Red) x1, GW-9330 (Initial Blue) x1, Frogman GF-1000 x1, Gravity Defier GW-A1000 x2, GW-A1100 x1
I prefer battery
G9100BP - GLX5600 (*4) - G5600 (*3) - GLS5600 - GWM5600 - G7710 - G2500 (*2) - SGW100
I have more battery Gs, because most are older models.
I notice newcomers to the G scene do NOT want to buy a battery however. I expect solars to hold value better going forward.
