    What G Shock are you not buying but really want to but can't quite justify it?

    For me it's the DW-5035D-1B. Why: because it's a Project Team "Tough" Screwback square. Because I think if I don't grab one now, they'll only get more expensive.

    Why I can't quite justify it: because gold isn't really my thing. Because although the sunburst is pretty, I love legibility and that comes first, so I'd prefer STN over a sunburst. Because a screwback GW-B5600 would be even *more* perfect, and maybe they'll do something like that.

    I'm still SUPER tempted.

    I like the Frogman. I don't dive or even swim with a watch. I think it would be too big on my wrist. I like the Frogman, the MB6 Frogman. I guess its good that its priced high as that keeps me from liking it enough to buy it. Lol

    If you're feeling like that and have the funds, I say go for it - it's one of the few squares (apart from my GW-5000 of course) I've kept and haven't thought about flipping.

    And re your question - for me it's the GWR-B1000X. I'd have to add funds into my watch fund to get it, and I'm not sure it would get quite enough wear, but man it's tempting!

    Thanks for the advice :) if I still feel this way in a couple weeks, I'm sure I'll know what to do. XD

    That carbon gravitymaster is a hell of a watch.

    Re: What G Shock are you not buying but really want to but can't quite justify it?

    Ahhh, yes, I remember the days of thinking I had to "justify" a purchase.

    Well, when you're in this game long enough, you can get REALLY good at 'justifying' just about any purchase, to yourself.

    So no, there is no G I'm not buying because I can't justify it.

    There is a G I'm not buying 'yet' because funds are needed for more important things at the moment. That's the GWR-B1000X. Hopefully when I have funds available, the watch will still be available. If so, I guarantee you that 'justifying it' won't even enter the picture!

    For me its the GWG 1000 I think it looks awesome but I told myself never buy an analog G again. I think if I was going to drop $500 I would get the steel square instead.

    I really love the current Gulfmaster, from what I read there are technical problems with the watch I do not want to gamble on. I just got a GW5000 and I think I need a new Seiko Arnie in my life this summer.

    I have tried this on and do like it a lot but can't quite justify the price (yet!).

    Re: What G Shock are you not buying but really want to but can't quite justify it?

    The recently released Earthwatch Rangeman GW-9404KJ aka The Kakapo bird.

    I can't justify it for the following reasons:
    - I still can't figure out if it's super cool or ugly as hell (probably a bit of both)
    - The colours are a little loud for me and I'd very rarely wear it
    - I already own the first Earthwatch Rangeman (the grey GW-9400KJ) which, in my personal opinion, is still the best Rangeman made to date

    Despite all that, there's still a nagging thought in the back of my mind to buy one. Teetering on the edge at the moment; might just take a moment of weakness or a super good price to get me over the line.
