    Solar Atomic week.

    I should have started this thread yesterday. Sorry.

    I've been thinking of ways to choose which G-Shock to wear. Last year was relatively easy as I wore one model a month for a year and blogged about it.

    But now what? I have twelve to choose from. I could hem and haw for ages before the watch case (and the cupboard that holds the overflow). Work wear is casual so I don't have to worry too much about matching colours or keeping it subtle. It's not as much a chore as Sjors must face every morning (or multiple times per day). But I have to come up with something.

    So, I came upon having a theme week. And this week's theme is Solar Atomic. Plese feel free to join in with whatever Solar Atomics you're wearing this week as well.

    I started out yesterday with my first G-Shock which happens to be my first Solar Atomic as well. The much maligned GW-300. I bought it used about five years ago and it is still going strong. I realize it could crap out at any time, but I'm not too worried as I've had good service out of it these years.



    Today I'm wearing the GW-1400DA. It was my first bracelet G and also my first ani digi. The thing that really got me on this one was the brightness of the led illuminators. You really have to be careful in a dark room with this one. You could go blind.





    So what Solar Atomics are you wearing this week?

    Re: Solar Atomic week.

    I'm a relative G-noob, because apart from the original I had in the 80s (and still have) I've only got into them in the last 4-5 weeks. As a result, I only have one solar atomic so far, but it's never off my wrist for long.

    So regarding next week, consider it chosen. The GW-6900

    That shot makes it look so menacing. I propose a nickname for that model; the GW-6900 Vader

    Re: Solar Atomic week.

    If it's Wednesday, it must be a GW-5600J.



    It being the third Solar Atomic G-Shock I acquired and all.

    I went for this one as it shows its roots directly back to the original G-Shock yet is thoroughly current. Plus it's subtle in it's styling compared to the chunkyness of the 300 and the flash of the 1400.



    See you tomorrow!

    I have one of these and I love it.

    Not only is it one of my favs, but it's a screaming deal at less than $65 via Amazon.

    Too kind I think I just like seeing watches close up! When I get a minute I'll see if anyone's ever posted in the forum about lens extension tubes. If not, I shall - they're a brilliantly cheap alternative to a dedicated macro lens.
