I bought a G-Shock not long after they came out in the mid 80's. I remember that I paid about $36 for it. I wore it for 6 years, when a co-worker said that he liked it and would give me $20 for it. Which gladly accepted. I took the $20 and bought another one. Price was at $54, and the watch was a little bigger. I wore that watch for some time, and even cracked the crystal; but watch was still WP! I may or may not still have that watch as I have bought new watches and have worn those, one was a company anniversary gift. I did buy a watch this year which I had long dreamed of, the Omega Seamaster. Wow, what a watch!
I'm going to buy a new G-Shock, as I do like the new ones with the atomic-solar technology. I'll have to seek some advice from y'all later as I have gone quite a bit long here. Later.
