Well within one week or so of making my initial introductions here on WUS forums (https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/new...1325834-2.html), I've acquired two new G's, and mainly by luck.
First off, I should qualify that I'm from the Caribbean, so G's are around, but can often be pricey through local retailers. Also, watch collectors down here are few and far between (much less for G-Shock collectors). Most acquisitions have to come from online shopping, or through one-or-two reliable G-shock dealers (again, $$$).
So mere days after acquiring my G5500-TS (by "luck"), I walked into another simple watch shop, hoping just to survey some new models they may have had.
At first I spotted a G6900KG-3 (my hand reached out to pocket for wallet simultaneously). As I was inspecting the 6900, then the goodly sales-woman pulls out....
I've been wanting one of these KG-3 iterations for a long time and I like the neg. LCD display, so the decision was already a torturous one:
Then it got worse - I suppose the sales-woman sensed the impending purchase, so she pointed me towards the "king" that they had in stock.
I stood in that store, stared at all three watches. Took me just over 6.10 minutes (courtesy the 5600E on my wrist) to decide on my purchase:
Just comparing the 5600E to the GX, the size difference is amazing. I honestly ended up choosing the King mainly since I'm a fan of the square look, and the heft of it - felt heavier than either the 6900 or the 7900 (IMHO).
That said, I have a feeling I may be adding a G6900KG-3 to my arsenal very soon
