    It happened to me too!

    Thanks guys............I think.

    All my life I've been a mechanical watch kind of guy. I have way too many autos and hand crankers.

    Because of this forum I bought my first G-Shock. A GWM850-1V.

    I love it. I always thought digital watches were stupid. And Quartz? Please!

    I can easily see and actually read the time, day, and date with this new "G" and my old eyes.

    I'm a convert. Now to decide which one next.

    Good stuff Welcome! You made a great pick - I like that one. Especially the silver bezel and light button.

    Thanks for the comments, guys.

    I don't have a camera so no pics. Sorry.

    I do like the solar/atomic aspect of my 850, so I suspect my next one will also be s/a.

    In the few short days that I've had the watch it finally did its first auto sync this morning at 12:04 am.

    Very cool, indeed!

    I spent the better part of this morning fishing and it is really sunny and bright here today in Chi-town. The battery charge went from medium to full in about an hour and a half. Also very cool, indeed!

    I've seen some pics of G-shocks with what appears to be a dark blue resin strap/band. Are there any s/a's with that strap/band?

    Something like that could easily be my next one.

    Thanks..........

    Congrats on your first G sliphorn . The atomic G's are about as worry free as you can get. Once your home city is set, turn the auto synch and DST on and forget about. What's not to like .
