    How much do you like G-Shocks?

    Enough for me to postpone upgrading to an iPhone 5, possibly till next year, and use the $ to get that next must have G.

    What about you? What have you gave up to get that G? :)

    Re: How much do you like G-Shocks?

    this has been my grail for like 2-3 years, the sinn ezm 1. I finally got the money to purchase it. I decided to order two MRGs instead. I knew that the coating on the mrgs was better, that they were atomic, tough solar. So when I was about to send the email for the sinn, I knew I liked G-shocks so much I would end up regretting this grail knowing I could have had two top of the line Gs. Just having to fix the date and knowing it would loose at least 5 seconds a day, that the chrono may get misaligned, that service would be like 500-700 dollars, made me start regretting it without even having gotten it. I may still get it at some point but I still rather get a G. My g-shocks, since the ones I am keeping are all now atomic, I know when I put it on in the morning, everything is just right. (I would also include my chronomaster in the just right bunch).

    Ever since i became a G-Shockoholic, i stopped buying Blu-Ray movies, PS3 and XBOX360 videogames...

    *i love it that there are quite a few iOS supporters in WUS.

    I gave up guitars. I had 6-8 and several amplifiers at any one time and thinned them out to just a couple that have sentimental value to me.

    Funny you mentioned you guitars. That's definitely one tangible thing that I would choose over G's. It's my livelyhood after all.

    Relied on them for some serious stuff for years. They're cheap and tough. Trusted to do the job and keep ticking like nothing ever happened. Only ever had two break on me. One was bc of a little impromptu target practice after a celebration of sorts. The other wasn't the watches fault in the least (seriously).

    So, a lot. I like em a lot.

    That is a sick-looking Sinn watch there... But of course G-Shocks are very addicting, so naturally, it is VERY hard to resist.

    Maybe in time, we would all get past that G-Shock addiction and go on with other hobbies, but right now we know its a habit...we try not to resist the urge, because it makes us feel good to get a new G to add to the collection.
