I'd like to thank all of you for making me an official Casio junkie now. :)
I bought the first new G-Shock I "needed" in years a few months ago after my faithful old 6900 had given up it's battery and needed a new one late last year, and in the mean time I had switched over to my G100 finally got to the point it got so dim I could not read it at night either. I then bought my first atomic / solar G (which I had wanted for some time) to alleviate this on going battery issue (especially with the 6900), I bought myself my first A/S watch, a GW9000.
But NO, that was NOT enough! :O I then discovered the ABC watches and the Pathfinders, and then had to have one! I bought a used PAG40 from a member here (which I have already traded). Still not being content I had always wanted a 6600, and once I came across an article about the the Pathfinders that stated in it that the 6600 Gs at one point HAD been the issue SEAL watch, I HAD to have one of them!
I ordered a 6600 a month or two ago, only to realize I got the one with the big "G" in the background, which I found too distracting from the display when lit and also too visible in the standard mode. :( I FINALLY managed to find someone with a non "G" one here in the US on Amazon, and ordered myself one. I liked that one so much, I have ANOTHER one! :O
Finally, last week as I was cutting the deal to move PAG40 Pathfinder, I had someone contact me with a PAW1300 Pathfinder for sale, which was the one I wanted originally anyway! Guess what? It's now mine!
BBUUUUUUHHHAHAHAHAHAHAA! I CAN'T BE STOPED! HELP ME! :)
Anywho, here's the kids -
The old clunker MTD-1010 non-G shock Casio dive watch is one I have had for years, one I bought when the battery in my first 6900 (oh yeah, I forgot, the 6900 pictured is my SECOND one:) years ago.
So let's see, that makes 5 watches in a few months, and overall 10 Casios in I don't remember how many years. My ex-wife bought me my first 6900 when we were married as a gift, and that was in the mid-90's.
Plus, I'm working on my current wife to buy me a MDV102-1AV Casio dual LED dive watch for my birthday in two weeks or so. :)
Yeah, I'd say I'm hooked...................................:)
