    Question Would you buy a franken G from a store?

    I was at a nearby mall today having lunch and I decided to checkout some of the stores after eating to see if I could find anything interesting. I have gotten lucky at this mall in the past and while I wasn't looking for anything in particular, I figured I would browse. The last place I looked at was a kiosk that has had interesting models in the past such as a variety of rare Risemans, Frogmans and 6900s/7900s in hard to find colors. I noticed tucked in the back of the case, there appeared to be a DW6900MM-2 and while I have yet to pick up a 6900, this is one color that I have wanted. When I asked the guy to take a look at it, I noticed something odd about it. It looks like it has had it's module swapped for a DW6900-NB7 module since the all blue face was gone. Now after seeing that one, the guy pulled out another G-Shock that had its module swapped, it was a GA110-1A1 swapped into a GD100 Army Green resin. Now the price of the DW6900 was a little high but what I want to know, would you buy a swapped module G-Shock from a store?

    If the price is right and it looks awesome, why not?

    It"s still all G-Shock right?

    yes with a few caveats

    1. has to be done tastefuly (at least something original/fresh)
    2. must have warranty whether from factory or at least the store who sells em
    3. price has to be reasonable

    Yes, if I really liked the result and the price was near enough to MRSP - I would otherwise have to get two G-Shocks to get the desired Franken-Shock... well then again nothing wrong with a few more G-Shocks either

    Yes, I would get any watch if it is reasonably priced.
    The MTG is retired and the 5600 too. Right now, the only working G-Shocks that I use and enjoy are the Riseman GW9200-1 and the GW6900-1

    If I can own a Rolex Submariner I would. I know they are tough too, their homages are tough. Trust me.

    G-Shock MTG930DA-8V, G-Shock GW-5600J-1. G-Shock Riseman GW9200-1, G-Shock GW6900-1
