    My only advice is be prepared to live by the n +1 rule for the amount of G's you'll end up having in your collection.

    I think the best advice I can give is just buy what you really like. There's no point buying into a collaboration or limited edition for the sake of it as it will give you no real pleasure. Also, no need to rush. Casio are releasing new ones every two minutes at the moment. Keep checking in here and G-Shock Japan etc for upcoming releases to see if they interest you. If you are after grabbing some vintage pieces then ebay and Yahoo Auctions. Quantity vs quality? Up to you really. I prefer rarer pieces whether old or new but that's more because I enjoy the fun of the chase as much as the getting the watch. I can also see why some people would just buy quite a few, try them for a bit and flip them if they don't make the grade.
    Which ones appeal to you right now? Squares? frogs? over size? mad colours? Analogue? Digital.? Ana-digi? Screw backs? Made in Japan? Etc etc. You may want to cherry pick one piece from each? Hanging around here will give you a lot of opportunity to see a huge range and maybe help narrow down what you actually like/need/want.

    Good luck and welcome.

    Welcome! Good news for you is that you started off with the most iconic (in my eyes) of G-Shocks. If you like it there are endless varieties and collabs of it.

    Like others have said, just start looking around, especially the WRUW (what are you wearing) threads as there is great variety. If you see something interesting search on it! There are probably some great threads on it already.

    Don't spend the money on a watch unless you have an idea of how much it should cost. There are a lot of watches on ebay that are priced way too high for what they are. Don't assume anyone's price is the "going rate" for a particular watch. You have to do your research and look at completed listings. Also, there are a lot of fakes online, but after a while you will be able to spot those easily.

    it's the formula to calculate how many G's you should have in your collection.
    n= number of watches you currently own
    therefore, the perfect number of G's = n +1
