I'm a newby. Despite being a regular visitor to Sjor's site (and various others), I have never (NEVER) posted on a watch forum.
I'm rather a late starter. Started off with cheap Casios (not entirely sure what, but F91 rings a bell), moved onto Sekondas when I started noticing divers, and finally, (FINALLY) bought a proper watch (a Seiko SKX033) at the ripe old age of 29. Shortly after this my wife was careless enough to fall pregnant, so, wanting something capable of dealing with water AND poo, and not knowing any better I bought myself a 'Club-G' (without carrying out any research on g's, sorry all), thinking they were al the same. Only in the last few months have I discovered a Club-G is tiny in comparison with the real thing.
In the meantime I have obtained a Seiko SNK809, as a dress watch (I replaced the nylon strap with a Hirsch-esque black leather strap, with contrasting stitching), and spent a lot of time considering various options. After deciding that all divers are, essentially, the same, and as I have one, one more would be pointless, I started looking at G's again and realised how wrong I'd been. I now have a DW-6900. Last of the real G's if you ask me.
What prompted this was that tonight I have bought a DW-5600E. I understand the draw of a DW-5600C, but I want to use this watch, and couldn't afford to wear a real one every day! What if I broke it?!?!?! Besides, I prefer an EL and would prbably get frustrated with not being able to see the time on my £100 watch. .
Anyway, point is, where next? I have my eye on an Black Monster with a resin strap, but I want another G. BUT, I want one that doesn't look like the ones I have. Any ideas?
