Hello guys, It is hard for me to decide the two cuz they are in "hmm...good to have" but not "I must have" category. A little Apple Vs Orange, Here is my dilemma:
Dee & Ricky (White)
As much I like uniqueness of this watch there are several issues with it. First, it is a white watch but I don't hv a white or analogue G. I would like to have a white G in my collection to represent but the same time i don't baby my G-Shock so white is annoying...2nd, I generally don't like collab G. I don't like to see other logo other than G-Shock label. Personally I find D&R logo design is tasteless. This can be solved by purchase GA-110 strap to replace. My 3rd issue is, Made in China. Don't get me wrong, I don't have problem with watch MIC but I have problem spending more than $150 for MIC. D&R is a hyped watch. While I believe black D&R will keep its price well, I don't see the same with white D&R. I believe its hype will decline. White watches doesn't do well against time...
Yellow Frog (GF-8250-9JF)
I like the liveliness of this frog. Egg yoke yellow is a good note but...I do have a yellow Jason G-001 I love. Although its different kinda yellow and watch, similar color will fight each time I try to pick one up. I own a atomic red frog which makes module on 8250 not as unique. Atomic Red, Real Black(8200BK) and Final(200Z) each has strong character, the GF-8250 feel like borrow a little here, borrow a little there. This yellow frog seem to share the same fate as Final frog. They are less desirable which makes them more affordable. Worry about G get dirty, a yellow G not much better than a white G. They just don't turn yellow :P
I am known to own G-Shocks that are too big for my thin wrist. I buy G by design, not by fitting so size does not come much of play. At this point both are about the same price.
Hopefully I don't sound too negative and picky. Never the the less, they are beautiful models. After all, I do have urge to buy yet a feeling holding me back. Now you know why they don't fall in "I must have' category.
They sure need no intro but a little stock photo just in case. Would like to hear your 2¢ on this, thanks advance.
