Hello Casio G-Shock forumers,
I've been reading these forums since February after a mate of mine showed me his G-9000MS and I fell in love with G-Shock. Since then I did a quick browse through these forums to see what else I like (as I haven't even yet purchased a Mudman that set off my affection for G's) and decided I liked the GW-5000B mainly because of its cult following and the simplistic and stealthy design.
I did a search on eBay and came across a used one (having eventually given up after desperately searching Google for a brand new one to no avail) and saw just one for sale. I had to take it straight away, even though I'd never purchased an G-Shock in my life. I should also add that I first admired G-Shock when I was a kid but couldn't afford one as a could my parents buy me one.
It was a bit of a wait for the GW-5000B as it was coming from overseas so in the mean time I had a look for my next purchase. My mate who introduced me to Casio G-Shock using the Mudman, recommended the MIMB Riseman and for me it was love at first sight. The stealthy/tooly/hightechy/futuristicy look of the MIMB Riseman was sublime in my books. I pulled the trigger after a bit of umming and ahhhing but the "FINAL STOCKS! !Will be discontinued soon" in big red text slathered on Chino watch's website was enough to tide me over.
I needed one more G-Shock I felt, as I wanted one that would take the heat off the other two so I was looking for a good beater. That's when I came across info from the Casio G-Shock forums of the DW-6600 being a popular choice amongst military etc. Having an interest in military watches (hence the username) I decided this was going to be my next G purchase and managed to find a non "C", as I found wasn't too keen on the G being in the background of the screen. I pulled the trigger from Bodying and got it within 4 days.
So without waffling on, here are some of the pics of my entry into the world of G-Shock.
