    My new obsession

    Hi I've been lurking for some time now between here and the Seiko forums for some time now.
    I recently picked up a Waveceptor (WV200a) to wear as a "beater" and as a change up from my normal rotation of automatics for yard work etc. I have to admit I fell in love with my $50 dollar plastic watch so much I came over here to find out a little more about the hype surrounding the various G-shock models. Shortly after reading up on what is what I purchased my first G, the cult classic DW6900. I am throughly impressed, all this for under 60 bucks! Yes my friends I have taking the bait hook, line and sinker I guess you could call me a G convert.
    Now, I have no intention of giving up my love for automatic watches. But I do see them getting a bit less wrist time, especially as my collection of G-shocks will continue to grow!

    Off to go hunt down a Mudman or maybe a Gulfman or a...... Well you get the point.

    Welcome!
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I hear you! I love SEIKO's and most of mine are auto divers, but these G's are really groovy, and addictive!

    The solar atomic G-Shock is the automatic for us geeks.

    For me an automatic (also own several seikos and citizens) and a solar one are designed for the same reason:
    The user shoulnd have to worry about watch movement power supply.

    I also have caught the Casio bug. I bought the Marlinator ( a fav on the dive forum) a month ago and have had more fun with this $47 watch than I have with my more expensive watches which I am selling off. Quite frankly I can't see how Casio can make such a well built watch for so cheap. Now I want to get a G-Shock. Thinkng about the traditional one from the 80s (not sure what you call it) or a Riseman. I really like the features on the Riseman. The best thing about Casio is bang for your buck. I always thought Seiko was the best bfyb but I believe Casio is the best now.

    That is definitely the direction I'm heading. I'm back and forth between the Mudman and the rally variation.
