    First G-Shock - Need Your Help To Choose One of These

    I've narrowed it down to the following three (technically four - see below)

    1) GW-2500B-1AER


    2) PRW-5000-1ER


    3) Riseman

    ----------------------------

    4) GW-M5600-1ER



    The reason I have separated the last one is that I am a big NASA fan, so this watch is a "must", relatively cheap and therefore will be bought along with one of the top three.



    So - I just don't know which to go for. I can afford to get 1), 3) and 4) all at one, but is there a better way to start? Should I go with one, then build up as maybe my likes/dislikes will change after I land the first one?

    Advice?

    Alternatives?!

    Thanks all!

    If it was my choice I would go with #4. Can never go wrong with the GW-M5600-1ER My second choice would be #3 Riseman. Good Luck!!!

    This will be my first such watch - I have only ever previously worn "shiny" Breitlings/Omegas/Tags etc, and I am a little nervious about the change! The M5600 is easy as it's not too chunky - I'm worried the others might be...

    I would go with #3 the riseman but I would go with the matte black version seen here, GW-9200MBJ

    I had a Riseman and it was not too big for my 6.5" wrist. It's also light and tough.
    If you don't need or use the functions don't get it. They come in some cool colors also.
    That GW 2500 is really nice also. It's analog and digital and is more a flieger style and a different animal than the Riseman. I would research the functions and get which one will
    suit your needs.

    Aaaaargh! I just dont know now!

    Now I'm thinking shall I just get a pathfinder (which would cost the same as 1, 3 & 4 combined) and have done with it.

    I could do that, and as amazing as that watch is, it's not a g-shock which is what I started looking for.

    The Riseman was the first one I liked, and came highly recommended on these fora, but the more I look at it, the less certain I am.

    No where near by seems to sell g-shocks, so I am buying blind.

    Amazon UK have the best prices, as always, but do they have a good return policy if I dont like the watch "in the flesh"?

    The more I look, the more confused I become!

    Go with your gut feeling Remember you will be the one wearing it. I don't believe you can go wrong which ever model you choose. Good Luck

    GW-M5600 is a must have so that one doesn't count!

    I wouldn't buy an analog g without tough movement, so my proposal is the GW3000.

    I vote for the riseman. It is less chunkier than you think, I have small wrists and it looks just right.
