    This is getting out of hand. How do I stop!

    It has been a month since I received my first G-Shock. I sold of a lot of my swiss collection so I had some money to spend. It is so much fun to hunt for G's and I my goal is to score them for under 50 euros (Limiteds excepted) I must be lucky or a good hunter because I have seven now! This is getting a little bit out of control. Does is stop? :oops:

    I can feel for you. I was in the same situation 7 weeks ago and I now have 15 in my collection. It tired me out so I am taking a break :). Is that you in the avatar?

    I understand you, I did the same. I had so many mechanicals and now I have only G's!
    Well just try to enjoy them more in sea, on the mountains, biking etc, that will make you to love more the ones you have and wont ask for more.
    It helped me at least

    Puhhhh, it's so good to hear that it's not just me.
    There is something special about the G-shock. They are easy to obtain, not to mention the affordable / colorful / loyal / tough/ coooool , and can find the heart of each individual, by just giving it a single chance.

    My poor collection by so far :


    GA-100 AKA the "Bumble bee"


    G-shock Frogman 25th Anniversary GLORIOUS GOLD


    G-6900GR AKA "Go green" the kermit


    G-shock G7800b


    DW-6900CB-4 (on the way)

    Hopefully, I have doubled up at the end of this year
    .
    What I'm missing here, like a true collector should have?! any ideas?!

    If you figure out how to stop, let me know. I've bought 23 since I started less than a month ago.

    My first post in the G-Shock forum was on the 21st May and I'd just bought 3 that week.

    Nearly two month's later I'm at 8 with my eyes on a couple more.

    It's crazy but fun!
