I have always taken great pride in my vintage watches and wear them as often as I can. But an accident this weekend got me to buy my first G-shock.
I was wearing a 1964 Rado Green Horse Daymaster with a Felsa movement(a model of which only 500 were made) while moving boxes down from the attic. All of the sudden a box came down on me and my reflexes kicked in and I raised my hand to protect myself. My watch suffered severe damage, so much so that it is irreparable.
I learned a hard lesson, fine vintage Swiss watches are not a good idea for strenuous activities. I needed a G-shock.
So i went to the Casio website and bought me a AWG100-1A which I will be receiving in 2 days. Its solar (i don't like having to replace batteries since all my watches are automatic or wind watches) and its analog which is a must for me. What do you think? I'll take wrist shots when I receive it in 2 days from Casio.
