    What are your thoughts on G Shocks newfound popularity?

    I know most of us here have been long time followers of G Shocks but I am wondering your thoughts on the new popularity? I see all kinds of guys these days wearing white G Shocks... trying to be like Kanye?

    Dont get me wrong, I really like the whites but am feeling the "core-ness" losing its edge. I used to get comments like "Whats with the (insert color here) watch?" all the time.

    Surprised we can even find them here in the valley

    I don't mind the growing popularity, I just hope it will make it easier to find some interesting models here in the US.

    I just hope that while Casio makes all these white/colorful G-Shocks they don't ignore what the G-Shock is all about. I think the G-7900 really proves that they are really still on the right track
    Not as clumsy or as random as a cell phone. An elegant timepiece for a more civilized time.

    The more G-Shocks get sold the better for Casio the better for us - this way Casio hopefully will earn enough money to put out new models every once in a while for us to buy . Don't matter to me much if they sell more white, pink or blue G-Shocks.

    I would say I wear my white G-Shocks despite the fact that Kanye does. Emulating that assclown is nowhere on my to-do list.

    to be honest, this type of conversation sounds like every hipster frustrated that his favorite band is now on a visa commercial.

    btw: I like Kanye West . 'College Dropout' is very good I think.

    BTW, Im not trying to hate on anyone or anything like that and I dont necessarily dislike Kanye but I DO enjoy seeing CASIO in the spotlight more often now.
