    I am SO weak....two new G's.

    I keep telling myself I can stop this G thing anytime I want. Anytime I want. Yes.
    Then I drive an hour into town to see if they have any new models in yet. This one department store chain suddenly brought in a whole lot of nice G's....possibly a test run.... so my thinking is that once they sell out, there may be no more to buy locally. It isn't anything to do with my addiction. Really. None at all.

    I chose a GLX5600 to use as a beater to save my GLX salmon and blue from getting all messed up, and my first Baby G (BGR-300 Solar) for those sporty-but-feminine occasions.

    Pics of the new members, and a pic of my Casio collection. So far.

    Congratulations on your new G's, they are all quite nice. I especially like the picture of them all over your laptop.

    Cheers...

    Nice pickups! I think this G thing is a junky virus to which there is no cure! I still find it hard to use any of my G's as a beater, I have a couple of old scratched up Armitron, G-Shock look-a-likes that I use for beaters.
    Experience is what you end up with when you didn't get what you wanted.

    I know I know! I'm looking at my new black GLX5600 and thinking can I really use you as a beater? No. I cannot. So the scruffy work goes back to my old Casio Illuminator W-740 that has been my trusty beater watch for almost 15 years. And I still take it off when things get rough. I'm hopeless. I seem to be missing the gene that allows me to treat my watches harshly. Even my cats think I'm weird.

    Ooooo...don't encourage me! I could sit and take pics of my watches all day and get absolutely nothing worthwhile done. But since you asked...

    A couple of pics of my G's at play:

    Do you live in Hawaii? If so, check out Macy's in Windward Mall. They have a pretty good selection of Gs, including Glorious Golds and ICERCs.

    Sadly, no, but thanks for the tip. My parents had a nice place in Kihei but when they passed away, "disagreements" between my sister and I meant it had to be sold. I haven't been back in several years now.....

    Re: I am SO weak....two new G's.

    You may be weak, but your watches are strong!

    Two questions, and sorry for straying off course.

    1. What's the info on the cube on the Baby-G's dial?
    2. I wonder when is someone going to take a DW-1000 and reproduce a resin (or other material) bezel?

    :thanks
