    Question What's your BIGGEST mistake??

    We've all done it....Purchased a g-shock we had little or no experience with, and we received it, we just didn't like it, and it got (and is still getting) no wrist time. Maybe you got a module you weren't familiar with once you bought it, you realized you just don't like how it works, maybe the watch just looks really bad on your wrist, maybe it was a crazy limited edition you bought because you didn't want to feel left out. Whatever the case may be, let's hear 'em!

    one of Mine: The GW-M5600A-3 it has a very dark green w/ yellow accents on the bezel, and matching strap. Module is nice though (multi-band 5) it just doesn't match with any of my clothing, and I'm not a fan of the green, let alone that colored green in the first place. Here's a picture:

    I love all my g's. Only thing I really regret is paying retail for two of them (DW6900NB-1, GWF-7). I usually only buy off of craigslist now and get the best deals.... new mm-2 for $30, ga110b-3 for $30..

    I love squares and when I got a chance to buy a DW-5600C that was flawless I paid a decent amount for it. When I got it I was not impressed haha. The rubber was hard, at an angle the screen didn't look great, the light sucked. Maybe it was the comparisons to the gw-5000 I was making, I don't know, but the purchase was definitely a mistake in my mind. I sold it like 3 weeks later and lost like 30 bucks on it. I know a lot of people like the vintage ones but I prefer the newer squares due to technology alone.

    If I had more watch money I would have kept it but I wore it once and did not like it so it was just taking up space in my, only 10 watches, mind.

    occasionally they do, but how do you confirm they aren't scamming unless they have feedback somewhere. Most don't because they want cash and want a quick sale.

    I figured it wouldn't matter about the scam stuff, bc you would be protected by paypal. And if you or me (the buyer) has a good track record with paypal, it shouldn't be a concern about getting your money if it was infact a scam. What do you think?
