Just thinking out loud but are G-Shocks (and i don't really mean this in a sexist way) like ugly women?

The reason i think it is this. I listed the G-Shocks i am selling on TZ-UK last night and since then have received quite a few Pm's with regard to sales and trades, however, no-one has actually commented or expressed an interest in the thread itself. This leads me to the conclusion that G-shocks are like ugly women.......

.........they are a lot of fun but you don't want your mate to see you with one!:D

:D, wondered where you were going with that ;)

TZ (as per the majority of internet watch forums) is somewhat focussed on analogue time pieces, particularly mechanical ones of a higher than avaerage quality. In this regard it's no surprise the reception to G-Shocks is somewhat lukewarm on occasion. Conversely there are probably many who would regard a G-Shock as cooler (or more desireable) than an obscure intricately crafted mechanical watch.

I agree with what you are saying but there does seem to be an appreciation of G-Shock in their right place. For instance, when Argos were selling the Atomic Solar 5600's off a couple of weeks ago on e-Bay, it started one of the longest 'I'm in' threads in 'Watch talk' i've ever seen.

yes, lots of Pm's with offers and trades but nothing on the thread!

Good point, the GW-M5600 thread was pretty long!

I think they're more like Jeeps and AK-47's. Looks don't matter. They do the job they were designed for and they will not break.
