I've been a mechanical watch nut for a while, but full disclosure, I LOVE funky watches and colors. I just can't spend $40k on a Franck Mueller.
So, I always wondered why people liked G-Shocks watches - especially the huge ones, I think they're hideous. And the 5600? Its a Relic! (But wait, its a pretty cool relic...what if digital watch but with cool colors!?)
So with that in mind, I was shopping for a friend for christmas and came across the Rasta colleciton. I'd specifically wanted a bold yellow watch, and even though I was shopping for a friend, when I found the 5600 in Yellow, greencicle and red I bought two. I freeging LOVE it.
So, in looking for more colorways though, I'm kind of surprised there isn't more of a galaxy. I found the 80s colors - I'd wear the .... out of that pink and blue; but the red and white is a little too real. I can see myself in an all white or a cream, especially the pigalle white with pink, I'd love to find a green or a rainbow or neon colored one. Why isn't there an all-glow resin???
C'mon I can't be the first person to think of that!
So does Gshock make just like new bands/resins that you can put on your watch? Or are there private sellers out there? I wouldn't mind getting a tough solar with a vibrating alarm if that's a thing, but mostly I'm just looking for more color options, and it would be great just to be able to buy the resins rather than having to buy a whole new module every time.
Please educate me! Links appreciated - trade and FSs too!
(and I no longer think the big ones are hideous - they're just not my bag. Yet. Put a strobe light on one and we'll talk ;)
