    What about this G-Shock?

    Hi,

    What do you say about model GD100GB-1. I am 43, I think its too gaudy for me and do not fit the general image of G-Shocks.

    I don't think there is one all purpose "general image" for G-Shocks. There is an incredible variety of styles and finishes these days. Get one that reflects YOUR taste!

    Definitely is an eye catcher



    But if you think it's too gaudy and you'd feel uncomfortable wearing it, you have your answer

    I usually don't like gold bling, especially mixed with black.
    Watches are fun IF you don't take them seriously.
    Too many watches for my signature... this is my SOTC thread on f71

    I saw one in the wild the other day and it looked quite good. If you like it you wear it. I reckon black and gold looks better than black and silver eg rolex or seiko two tone.

    I am not a big gold guy; however, I am 54 so what do I know.

    It isn't my style but a sale at Zumiez store seems to like it. He is about 25-30. He said he was saving up for this model. Consider he has seen many G-Shock on display but still want this one, it must be a popular for some.

    The general image of G-Shocks has changed since they first came out in 1983. (I'm just a little older than you, and can remember when G-Shock were like the later Model T Fords -- "any color that [the customer] wants so long as it is black.")

    Casio seems to feel the need to offer G's in more colors to attract a bigger, younger, hipper customer base. Personally, I'm not thrilled at the decision (and what some see as a "dilution of the brand") BUT if it keeps Casio in business -- and making G-Shocks -- for another 30 or 100 years, then I'm all for it!

    ...as long as they continue to make most "base models" available in some shade of black or gray, too!
