So a little background...I became a watch guy toward the end of 05 into 06 and have since been into all sorts of automatic divers. Did a lot of the flipping game just to check out different models and have kind of cooled off after really liking the style of my tag aquaracer chrono in black. It had the perfect substantial size while also showing a little class in addition to its obvious sporty nature...
...then this year I started working in the hospital and I realized not only was it risky to have to take off my watch and leave it somewhere while I was scrubbed in, but the likelihood of it getting banged around increased 100-fold. In addition, writing in charts and the like required me always knowing military time + the date.
It got me thinking about different random watches I had seen over my years of perusing this wonderful forum and for some reason the images of the ocean gray limited editions as well as the frogman popped into my head. I started bumming around on the FS forum and just quickly pulled the trigger on a ocean gray DW5025 as a daily wearer that would be different but still deliver some panache. Then I saw some of the neat limited edition frogmen like the dawn black, master blue, and the glorious gold and decided to pull the trigger on a GG + dawn black bezel and strap thinking it'd be a nice alternate work watch that would give me some wrist presence while also delivering all the info I needed.
FFWD a week from that time and I've received the DW5025 but not the froggy and I have to say I love it. The GF thinks it looks like a toy watch from a cereal box but I have to say I dont care. Its unique and handy to have around when I've eaten something like spinach at work (gotta love that mirror display ).
In anticipation, as us watch fanatics tend to do, I've been checking out pics that others have of the watch I'm about to receive as well as others and I came across the riseman in black with the red eye. Decided that barometer might be nice since down here in New Orleans you never know whats going to happen outside. Pulled the trigger on that one.
Now I'm sitting here burning a little free time on WUS and I see the DW6925E-7CR (GG as well) and I'm thinking I like it as well...by the end of next week I could end up the owner of 4 different g-shocks within 2 weeks. The disease is back! AGGGH!! At least this habit is cheaper than hunting after automatic chronos like I used to.
Sorry for the lack of pics but once I have the 3 I've ordered already I'll do a side-by-side when I can.
