    Help Me Find My First G-Shock

    I have always wanted one of these and there are so many out there that I can't seem to decide. Also, I'm not sure where I would order them as well so maybe you guys can help point me in that direction as well. But from what I've seen there are a few qualities that I would like my first G-Shock to have and I've listed them below. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I look forward to your ideas from a dedicated community here.

    Looking for a G-Shock that has:

    - 200 M water restitancy
    - Solar Powered
    - Wave Ceptor technology (preferred, but not a must)
    - Along with time, the date and month should be on the initial display

    ebay is a good place to get them.
    so is amazon.com
    as far as water resistance I think most of the models are good up to 200M.
    then as far as the atomic and solar features a Mudman might be a good choice for you.
    but if you don't like that styling then theres lots more to pick from.
    Casio has a lot of atomic/solar G-shocks to choose from.
    maybe start with their website- www.gshock.com

    good luck

    Or, as you said atomic wasn't a must, a GW-200 Frog.

    it really depends on your budget. you want a good one? it's going to cost you about 200.00 and plus maybe some change.

    like the others have said - the GW-M5600 model will be good for you. it shows the date and the day with the time on the same screen. this model comes with a reverse display or a simple regular display. it's solar atomic and 200M water resist.

    i think it will do you good.

    if NOT. there are brand that are solar atomic for a bit cheaper but personally, i think the 5600 look is the g-shock that is most recognizable as a g-shock. it's a classic retro look that fits will all styles of clothes you might wear.

    obviously, there are others like the Riseman, Mudman, Raysman, etc. so there are definitely a lot of models to look at. also, you should probably look for one that is easy to obtain. because if you are going to choose exotic models, you will probably have to import the watch, which takes time and some patient.

    good luck.
