I admit it. Iím jealous of the kids who match their G Shocks with their caps, jerseys and sneakers. I just canít pull it off. Sure, anyone can buy and wear, but its the confidence I lack. An exchange that disappears with the extra decade of age. Maybe I could pull it off if I had a few drinks in me, but that would make the rest of the day a challenge. Maybe with an extra two decades I will have the confidence to simply not care what people think.
Then one day I saw the 5600 Crazy Colors models and made a wonderful observation. Yes, I can now finally accessorise with my G Shock. You see, the blue one is the same color as the Fisher Space Pen X-750 I just bought. So now I think Iím cool, in a nerd kinda way.
The watch is fantastic. Awesome blue with a cool shimmer to it. Not quite a metallic. Negative display with a blue field. The dial has a frame of black and gray pattern edged with a thin baby blue. Compared to the GWM, there is also a lot less words on the dial which looks good cuz like the instructions on the condom package, nobody actually reads those words anyway. Also noticed compared to the GWM the solar panel is smaller which gives some dial real estate back to some more meaningful decoration.
