    Need advice for 1st G-shock purchase!

    Hi guys, been browsing the Casio forum here for a week and now I really want a G-shock! Because of the sheer number of models available, I am not certain which to pick up. I was hoping you Gshock experts could assist me in my purchase decision. Here are my criterias:

    1) Must be solar and 6 band radio sync.
    2) Budget: Up to $500
    3) Square or other shapes are all acceptable
    4) Size - 41mm or above
    5) Limited Editions are preferable if possible
    6) I prefer newer releases, if something awesome is coming out this Month I can wait...but only to the end of the month!!!
    7) Color - Anything other than pink is ok!

    Your input is greatly appreciated!

    I am hoping someone can point me to something even better. I am not very knowledgeable on G-shocks, this was just a model that met my criterias, but it is on the expensive side and the color isn't for all occasions.

    Neutralman, i think you can get both of them within your budget. Anyway, i was gonna suggest a GW-9200 or GW-9300. A few different versions and great watches.
    Yes, I am OCD. What gave it away?

    with that budget you can get at least 3 G's, so the next 2 are:

    - GX56 GDK (no atomic though) few are avail. in Ebay

    - Riseman or gwm-5600/5610 or gw-6900

    I like both those watches you mentioned. This is gonna be tough, might as the dolphin watch + one of these you suggested.
