    How much $$$ is in your G-Shock collection?

    I just recently started buying g-shock watches and I can see how the hobby can get VERY expensive. How many watches do y'all have and how much money is in your collection?
    Do y'all ever look at yalls collection and think why am I spending so much on this hobby/obsession? lol
    There are currently around 10 6900's I want and I'm like "man that's gonna cost alot" lol

    Re: How much $$$ is in your G-Shock collection?

    I imagine I am somewhat different than most collectors. I prefer to keep a small number, but I end up buying and selling a lot in the process. I have 15 now, but I am trying to thin it down to 10 that I really like. I am in a constant process of buying and selling, seeing what seems to work and what doesn't, and getting forever closer to a group that I like. I keep a spreadsheet of how much I spent and how much I got from selling so that I am always at least breaking even in the long run. Sometimes I buy models I don't even like when I get a good deal, just to flip them later and help buffer against the losses from models that I bought and regretted and had to sell for less than I paid. As new models come out, I need to evaluate whether they would be better for my collection than any of the models I currently have. It's an interesting hobby. I also collect shotglasses, but I never sell them of course. I just accumulate more and more from different places, wherever I travel. They are cheap so I don't worry about it. Watches are too expensive to accumulate without limits (for me, at least). So I have imposed the 10 watch limit, which is very difficult to stick to.

    I was telling myself the other day, if I were to convert the value of my mechanical watches, I will have gotten more than 250 Gs. Whether G shock or mechanical, watch collection is a expensive hobby, it is just like drugs, once you are hooked, you are doomed!

    Nope, The only thing I think: "Do I have enough funds for my next G-Shock". Had some unexpected bills and had to buy a new bicycle for my son this month, so the Blvck Scvle and the TC Frog are my only new Gs this month. I'm looking forward to the next month for some new Gs.

    Cheers,

    Re: How much $$$ is in your G-Shock collection?

    I estimate my G's to have cost me approx €1250 - €1400.

    Add protreks...another €600.

    Still less than my Omega AT...

    However, perhaps it is a good thing that I don't have my eye on any new G's for quite a long time now :D

    I have spent a few buck $$$$$ I really don't want to know how much. I collect the G's for fun. It's the hunt I enjoy. So I guess since times are tight I'm pretty picky which G's I pick up.
    Mechagodzilla find me a G-Shock in Tokyo!!

    I'd rather not think about it.

    Re: How much $$$ is in your G-Shock collection?

    Only three out of twelve are G-Shocks, but my spreadsheet tells me that my watches cost me £5,420 at an average of £452.

    Money well-spent? Well, it depends on your point of view. From any purely rational perspective... hmm... obviously not.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I'm not sure I would call it a collection with only three G's but I fugure I'm into them for $135 total. I wear them more than all other watches combined, a true bargain.
