I generally don't post help me decide threads, but I've got the itch to buy another piece again. The four watches are all very different from one another.
I understand that for the most part the decision process is highly subjective, but I still want to hear what you guys would do in my situation.
For about a year now, I've dabbled in G-shocks and have been content with my collection -- satisfied. But the itch is back after lying dormant for so long.
MKII Nassau: I've checked this piece out in the past. Although most homages don't do it for me, I would accept this piece because it pays tribute to a model that's no longer in production. The MKII watches also have quite a following for being hand assembled and tested for accuracy. The downside? Looong waiting time for assembly and shipping, upwards of 20 weeks.
SBBN013 "Darth Tuna": Most people won't get this one, but I've always been a Seiko nut. I own a 015 Tuna that I like a lot. The Darth Tuna, for the price of around 1.5k, is a beast of a tool watch with a quartz movement designed for use in harsh diving environments. The downside? Might be too large for my wrist, though Tuna's seem to wear small.
Sinn 856 non-UTC: I became a Sinner last year when I got the 556i. Awesome little watch. I appreciate the 856's clean display and legible markers. The dehumidifying technology is icing on cake. With a 40mm case diameter, it would be the ideal size for my 6.5" wrist. The downside? Aside from a smudgy crystal, none that I can think of.
Frogman GWF1000: The oddball of the bunch. It's not pretty, it's not subtle, and it's a G-shock. I think this piece is pretty badass, pardon my 'Merican. The Frogman in particular has a stainless steel case unlike most G-shocks manufactured today. I like these digital watches and I own a bunch now. Downside: It's expensive for a G-shock and massive. I've read that many say it's the most uncomfortable of the Frogman line.
Thoughts on these pieces? I'm leaning toward either the SBBN013 or the 856 with the Nassau trailing close. Help push me in any direction!
Feel free to toss in other suggestions to make things more confusing. :D
