How Many Gs to Be Considered a Collector ?

# Thread: How Many Gs to Be Considered a Collector ?

1. ## How Many Gs to Be Considered a Collector ?

I've always wanted to hear others opinions on how many G-Shocks do you have to own to consider yourself a collector ?

2. ## Re: How Many Gs to Be Considered a Collector ?

At least one I suppose.

Sounds right to me.

If you plan to collect anything, your collection begins at 1.

If you don't plan to collect something, but you have 3 of that thing, you just have 3 of that thing.

4.

I've always thought that it needs to be two or three, but I didn't think it needed to be large number.

I just checked two dictionaries, and both define "collection" as "a group of objects to be exhibited, compared, and studied," and those same dictionaries define "group" as "two or more." [1] [2]

Probably true, too.

I guess a collector with 1 is more of an enthusiast.

I will simply say a collector is rated more by enthusiasm than quantity. I will say 1. Someone who is a regular Thunderdome situation. (2 watches enter, 1 leaves) and always returns to one is definitely in.

I usually have one G-shock, sometimes two or three. I had five for a while.

In last 3 years I bought 28 Casios (mostly G) and sold 26 of them.

Am I a collector? Don't think so.
Enthusiast? Probably.
Nuts? For sure.

Cheers, Piowa

BTW: Can somebody drop me the link to the thread where we were counting all the G-Shocks here?
It was a long list like that...

User 1 ....... 3 watches
User 2 ........ 23 watches
....
etc.

TOTAL ..... xxx watches

Thanks, Piowa

i am with piowa on this... i dont consider myself a collector (i wish i could) due to money constraints but surely i am an enthusiast and definitely going nuts over these so-called G's.

i even spread this mania to my friends and relatives, and help them choose the models suited for them.

it's been a year of buying and selling, and 24 G's of different models have gone through my palms already with 18 of those sold while the remaining 6 are:

gd120ts-1er
dw5600ms-1
dw6900ms
9000ms
glx150x
gb5600ab

and you bet! these 6 i have now wont be staying with me for too long.
