    What was your FIRST G?

    I'm sure this had been done (and probably more than once) so you veteran posters can probably just roll your eyes (or re-post the same info), but I'm curious to see what everyone's FIRST G-Shock was.

    Mine is the DW-003 Tough Label. Here is are a few pics of it today (it needs a new battery):







    And a stock photo of the Japanese version DW-003HH-4T(G'Mix):




    I really liked Orange back then!

    I hate the gold hardware so I painted everything black and covered it in cyanoacrylate (super glue)
    not pretty but does the job lol.

    My very first G was given to me by my dad. I guess I was around 12y/o. It looked like a clock on my noodle arms. It was the DW-6100. I wish I still had it...

    Stricly speaking it was a Club-G GXS-900 (like in Sjor's recent battery change thread), but my first real one was this:



    Now, sadly, departed, but not forgotten. If Casio ever produce an atomic solar version, I'll be at the front of the queue

    Hi

    Mine was a Gaussmen, Men in Navy and Khaki. Bought it at a small jeweller for less than a 100 bucks in '93... Ah those were the days when G's were still cheap...

    I needed a tough mud resistant watch to enjoy 4x4-ing. There were no Mudman's in South Africa and the Gaussman just looked like it had to be submersed in mud and dirt. I still wear it but it has since found a few new buddies.

    Cheers

    Pieter
