    Question Got a new G! - GA-100B-4A! - Also, opinions on next purchase?

    So today I received my second G-Shock which I ordered after my blingy gold one to mix it up a bit: A GA-100B-4AER! I absolutely LOVE this thing, it's big, it's colourful and I absolutely love the display, looks like a Ferrari dashboard! haha.

    Surprisingly not as big as I expected, from what I was reading about the Oversize range people are making it sound like it is as thick as my Galaxy S5, it's a nice size, big, but not enough to seem ridiculous!

    Here it is:

    Also here is the gold one I got in the mail yesterday: GA-200GD-9AER

    Also I was thinking of getting a GM-M5610 as my next purchase so I have a gold blingy one, a nice sporty one and an overall super reliable one. The solar power, multi-band and retro design seem damn nice. The reason I was thinking of getting one is I spotted one for £55 but the seller said he had cut 1cm off the strap and has a picture showing it but no holes have been removed, hence the price. The seller also claims it is "unused" but I'm curious why he would cut 1cm off the strap if he was not going to use it?

    Should I go for it? I've already bought these two so I was not sure but I don't want to pass it up then later on decide I want a GM-M5610 and have to pay a higher price.

    Can I get your opinions on this guys?

    My opinion is to buy the new product, pay more but be sure, I have bought GW-M5610 on Amazon.

    The yellow is not original, is a film over the screen.

    That's an epic looking watch! :) the film is awesome. Also is there a model with negative displays? like black with white numbers? I'm guessing it's a limited edition.

    I think I may just wait a while and get a new one, it did look in good shape in the pictures, but was a bit strange he said "I had to sell a more expensive watch and now I also have to let this one go" yet he has 100% positive feedback...weird. I was also looking at 5000 models which people say to go for, which are much more expensive and there are countless threads talking about it.

    I think your advice is best, I'm currently suffering from G-Shock fever and have been on YouTube, here and various other sites non stop! >.<

    im not sure how much the 5610 is normally out your way but if 55 quid is a good deal i say go for it. i doubt its NEW new (cos youre right, no one chops up their watch then decides to sell it without at least trying to justify the mod for a little while lol) but if it looks in good nick then it should be fine (post up a pic if you want a definitive call on it ) if you dont mind the altered band. worse comes to worse you can always just buy a new band for it and prob still get away with it being cheaper than a new one.

    ps. i think the ga1xx size is a good size, def. not too big and wears pretty comfortable. usually the ppl that complain about them have only ever worn dainty dress watches and have never actually worn a G before.

    I ended up buying it I got it for £70 at Argos brand new. The guy said he wore it for one day and it wasn't for him.

    So far I LOVE the watch and my next purchase is gonna be a G7900B! the solar and multi band are becoming a MUST for me now >.< damn Casio and their state of the art tech haha

    Cool thing about these watches is the variety of modules, cases, and resin available. It's insane. GA100, GD100, GA110, GD110, GD120, all share the same basic case design.

    This took three different watches to assemble:
