Hi, I just discovered this message board. Like a lot of you I love watches and have been collecting them since i was a wee lad. Just recently I got into G-Shocks and man are they addicting; I now have 5. Anyway I just purchased a GWX5600B, the glossy white one with a glossy black band. For some odd reason I feel afraid to wear it because I think it would be a shame to dull and tarnish the glossy finish. Feels a little strange considering behind the glossy finish it's still a rugged utility watch. Probably won't stop me from dirty-ing it up though but its the first time I've felt any reservations about getting a G-shock dirty. And in my daily routine I do put them up to a lot of abuse.
So I got to thinking, as much as I like some of the "flashy and trendy" g-shocks (I own those too) it seems a little paradoxical for a watch brand that has a reputation for extreme ruggedness should have so many "pretty ones" within its family tree. I guess you could call it clever marketing, who knows....
So what about the rest of you? Are there some G-shocks you try harder to preserve than the rest?
