I got this GW-6900 this last week from the sale on Amazon. It’s not as legible as my 5610, nor as good a fit on my smaller wrist, but I do enjoy its ‘90s styling. It has a chunky, over-engineered feel to it, like I should wear it in a James Cameron sci-fi movie.
Couple new G's this week from opposite ends of the spectrum for me.
Have been wanting a solar/atomic analog model and took an ebay chance on a used GWA1100-1A3.
Was happy to find it in near-perfect condition and showing minimal signs of wear. Triple G and sapphire glass a welcome added bonus.
Still sorting its functions out but this ticked off several boxes for me.
Very enjoyable to use and it wears great, being a bit smaller than I had expected. Only gripe is no light.
While I had chased the GWA, the second purchase was a sudden one.
At the mall with time to kill, and local department store has 30% off all watches...
Had wanted a DW type module of some sort, but didn't currently want another square and then found this.
It does have the expected negative display viewing issues, and I am missing the auto-EL feature, but otherwise quite happy with it.
Being drawn to less colorful designs, the Red-Out collection wasn't on my radar, but the red with black trim plus silver/red lcd is very striking in person.
Price was right, plus I love the matte finish texture similar to my other 35th piece, a GA835A-1A.
the Odd Couple...
Very cool. That red one’s display is a trip! :)

Some Men In Mud, and a GAS-100
I'm surprised how much I'm digging the Mudmen, but the GAS is too big and probably going right back out the door.
Now I'm on the hunt for something in blue that won't break the bank.

When there is doubt, there is no doubt.
Look what the Casio stork just dropped off: a pre-owned DW-6400 "Gundam" (circa 1994). The previous owner must've kept this thing in a cryo-chamber bathing in amniotic fluid, because the dial and case are in near-mint condition.
A few love taps on the caseback, but I'll survive.
Definitely one of the coolest "oldie but a goodie"s I've picked up in a while.

"When the shadow of the sash appeared in the curtains it was between seven and eight o'clock and then I was in time again, hearing the watch. It was Grandfather's and when Father gave it to me he said I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire.... I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all your breath trying to conquer it."
