    Just Got My 1st G-Shock...Whatcha Think?

    Well, in my unintentional but strangely aggressive quest to get at least one watch from each forum, I've finally found a G-Shock for me.

    Truth is, I've always dug them. I like that they're not afraid to try some really bold styling themes and that they're so practical for a reasonable price. Problem is, I never really saw myself pulling one off and I have never liked rubber bands. But...

    I started out a few weeks ago thinking I could mod a winter camo model myself, and get a nato strap on there. The forum pointed me toward skywatches who claimed to have a winter 5500. I ordered, and found out days later that they didn't have any in stock. Bummer. But, they offered to let me choose another 5000 series (at any price) to replace it. So, in the end I got exactly what I wanted but didn't know existed. All at a nice discount!

    So here we are. Leather strap from the factory in a nice, distinctive all white colorway. I really love it. Might even have jumped to number 2 in the rotation.

    I was deciding between this and the G-Lide 5600, but in the end decided for the G-Lide version as it has a cloth-type strap.

    Do take care of the leather strap!!!!

    Ha, that is my only concern. It looks so great right now, almost glows in the light. Hopefully I can keep it looking that way. Definitely don't plan to do any extreme activities with this one on.

    Nice one. Welcome to G-Shocks.

    I wasn't too sure about this one when it first came out, but I've been warming up to it. It has a real unique look with that band.

    Great grab!!! Glad to see you found what you were looking for and at a great price to boot!!! I would get an extra strap while you can and look into like a Scotch Guard type of treatment that may help protect that beauty!!!

    Casio never ceases to amaze me with the vast number of G-Shock models they produce. That's a good looking combination!

    Cheers...

    Unfortunately, I usually have to sell a few to get a few, so I don't have them all at one time.

    So far I've had
    Seiko-many 6309's and various divers
    Citizen- Nighthawk, Skyhawk
    Orient- Mako
    Prometheus CR1
    Gshock 5600
    Stowa Antea
    Suunto Core
    Tissot PR50
    TAG F1
    Hamilton Khaki
    Laco B-Uhr

    Among various other Russian, Chinese, and homage watches that are the toast of the various theme forums. I've still got quite a ways to go, but it's only been about 6 months. I need a new job if I'm going to hit some of these brands!
