    The G-Shock addiction may have hit me...

    New member of the forum (sort of).
    I've been looking for a tough travel watch for my upcoming honeymoon to Tahiti, and wandered into the G-Shock forum last week as I had heard about Seals etc. using G-Shocks as their watch of choice.

    Never thought I'd go digital, but man o man are the G's a tempting watch!
    There's just something about them that yells "Buy me! Wear me!"

    I'm also a big movie watch fan, specifically if it's a movie I love, and a cool watch to boot. Of which the Gs make a nice affordable collectible, versus all the Omegas, Rolex, IWC, and various other high-end high-cost watches used in some of my favourite movies.

    So far, with regards to my G choices for travel, I've narrowed it down to a few versions:

    -AWG101-1A
    -G9100 Gulfman
    -G9000 Mudman
    -MTG910DA-1V (for it's MI3 link!)

    The choice will be most difficult!

    I'm not sure if the Mudman's been in any movies, but it's recently been seen in space.

    I'm pretty much the same ie. recent convert and g-shocks are, mostly, affordable collectables. Just got my first g-shock, a DW-5600E, a nice retro look. Also have a G-8000 on order.

    The 5600E will have made more movie appearances than any other G-Shock. It's a direct descendant of the first G-Shock, and everyone should have one.

    So that would be my choice.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Got my first G8000 recently--version 1. I really really like the watch. I like all my G-shocks(about 30), but this particular one is great.

    Personal preference of course but I'd suggest the G2300B-1V with the Nylon band.

    To me it's a good all around "first G".

    Tough Solar, World Time, Telememo, 5 alarms that can be set for specific days, 24 hour Countdown timer, and stopwatch.

    Just a good tough watch. I think the red lettering turns people off and you can't see the time while in stop watch or countdown mode. But I used mine when I go on vacation whenever I know I'm gonna be swimming or out in the heat.

    Ditto. The 2300 on resin was my first (and only) G-Shock and I could not be happier. Perfect for working out, yard work, or when I feel like a break from Stainless Steel.

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys!

    I wasn't too keen on that Jelly at first, but it's kind of cool the more I look at it.

    I'm going to look around my local retailers and see which G's they carry, try some on and see what fits best, the go from there.
