    n00b story & question

    Hello fellow G-Shockers. I have a funny story about how I joined the club. I saw someone sporting a white G-Shock, and I liked the look so I bought one online. At the time I didn't know a G-Shock from a Timex. I only knew that I liked the look and it said G-Shock on it. Over time the band discolored and I went to buy another, only to find that my watch was a cheap knockoff. So I started researching real G-Shock's, only to find the insane history and culture behind it. Needless to say I've fallen in love with the style and the engineering behind what Casio has done with the G-Shock brand.

    Now I'm looking to invest in the real deal, but I have a question for my fellow G-Shockers. Do real white G-Shocks discolor significantly over time? Also, I love the GWM5610-1, but how do I find out if a white version exists?

    I have one white G shock.. and yes. the band is now a different color from the case. It has become a bit yellowish tone. The watch has mostly been indoors and wore very sparingly. I've given the watch to my older son as he likes it and wears it.

    OP and Mod, should put this in the G Shock Forum.

    add: my mistake. thought I was in a different forum.

    Whenever I get a new G Shock, I always order a band and bezel as well. Down the road they might be hard to come by when you’d need it.
    Time4Playnow and Rocat like this.
