    New User - Long time G-Shock fan

    Just thought I'd introduce myself on here. Been lurking for some time now, finally decided to sign up, post some pics, and share in my addiction.

    I've been a long-time fan of G-shocks, specifically the 5600 line (since I was 7 or 8).

    Remember seeing them in the stores and one or two kids had them in school. Unfortunately the folks really couldn't afford to get me one back then.

    Now, I'm older, working, and I'm finally able to own the watches I wanted:

    1) DW-5600E (5.5 years old, daily beater)

    2)DW-5600E (kept in near pristine condition)
    Name:  DW-5600E-1.jpg
Views: 265
Size:  189.1 KB

    The beater (left/above) uses an unusual band on it (completely original):

    3)Also have a use-on-some-work-days AW-590BL:

    4)Then there's my olive G-5600. Worn only on special occasions, but (sun) charged frequently (Tough Solar):
    Name:  G-5600.jpg
Views: 257
Size:  216.0 KB



    5) And lastly, I just thought I'd throw in this Edifice for good measure (not a G-shock, but Casio nonetheless):

    Hope this is a good start! Looking to add a G-6900 and a DW-5500 to my collection next :D

    Welcome, but beware of the edge Simonal mentions!

    I discovered this forum three years ago when I was trying to put a new strap on my then-new G-Shock -- I also had ONE older, somewhat battered G-Shock, another broken one in a drawer, and one early 1980's Casio.

    In three years I'm now up to 15 G-Shocks (including some duplicates), 7 Casios (including duplicates), many spare bezels and straps for "down the road" or "for changing their looks." My buying had slowed down in the past year, but I just bought two this month and a third for a friend!

    Perhaps worst of all, hanging around here has made me somewhat of a "collector." I used to love G-Shocks because they were tough watches that I could wear anywhere and not worry about them -- now I've got different CATEGORIES of "beaters," "daily wearers," and "ones that stay in their box!"
