If you want to make an introduction here is the place to do it :D

I'll start. Had my first Casio 25 years ago. First G-Shock 10 years ago (a G2500). Collection hovered around one for a few years until work took me to Japan and a trip round Akihabra. A second was purchased, I found a few G-Shock sites and the rest is history. Not really a big time collector but have a fair spread of stuff with a particular interest in some of the older models. All time fave is my classic DW-5200, currently mostly wearing a DW-9700NK Men in Nay and Khaki Gulfman.

Hello from a newbie to the forum.

Been collecting G-Shocks for far too long :rolleyes:

Rediculous collection of Frogmen, but don't tend to add to them anymore.

Love 80s stuff, my all time favourite is the WW-5300. It's a bit of an oddball, just like myself ;)

So anything from the 80s, or any Limited pieces that are released, that's my thing :cool:

Glad to be here, hope to make some new friends.

Good to see someone else has an interest in the older stuff. The WW-5300 is a rare old item, would love to see some pics.

Hello,

I have come over from TZ-UK too.

I have been I keen wearer of Casio watches and all things G-Shock for many years (since school in fact 25 + years ago).

In the last few years the Collection has grown due to my addiction growing to own the cool designs.

My wife and kids are owners of a growing collection of Baby-G's ( in fact it grew by one yesterday as my wife had a crystal clear Baby-G arrive).


I have a few vintage G-shocks and most recent and worn ones are the GXW-56 in Orange, MIMB Gulfman and a M5600BC. I prefer Negative display but also like regular one's.

I can see my collecting increasing as a result of looking at another G-Shock Forum.



I look forward to participating and reading in the future.

Cool site.

Another TZ refugee. I currently own a solar atomic 6900 and a full analogue G-1000. Oh, and a DW-003 which was sent to me from my good friend and fellow TZer Dave (above!) and which I've resurrected as it was suffering from terminal bezel rot. For non-TZ members I'll post a thread on it in the next few days.

Congratulations on a great looking site.

Hi...I'm John... I stop into most forums, good to see some familiar faces and love for G-Shocks...:D

I have onwed many over the years and I think I have settled? on 12-14 right now. A mixture of many models, which I will post a pic of soon. MTG, Giez, 6900, 5600, Muddie, Gulfman, etc.

Over the years I have found the Frogs too big and don't wear much. Some colors also don;t get much wear. On the positive I like Atomic Solar. A recent arrival of a GW2310 was quite surprising and well worth the money spent.

Thanks to our site host :cool:..... here's one to get the blood pumping... The wear and tear is legit and the bezel is indeed glued together --- holding hope to someday find a replacement, as are many others.

Sounds a fine collection. Love the DW-5300-1AV. Good luck finding a new bezel though. Have two myself, ended up with a bag of spare DW-5300 bits and pieces before I managed to snag two with good bezels. Also a little sad to not this isn't the Mission Impossible watch ;).

Hi I'm James, I have only really got into these in the last couple of years, and I already have ten. I do find it hard to find the interesting ones here in the UK, but hopefully reading through the forum will help with that.
Just today I went out to get some motorbike parts, and found a G-7710KRT-3ER, which is a bright green Kawasaki edition g shock that I've been looking for for a while, and I found it by pure chance, not a bad price either.

Hi peeps,

just thought i'd take a moment to introduce myself, I'm Spencer and i'm relatively new to G-Shocks. I've always been an 'automatic' watch man not really paying much attention to digitals. I bought 2 G-Shocks from e-Bay in 2003; one a Frogman, the other i can't remember but both were fake which i did'nt realise until i got them. The seller disappeared and the fakes were binned but, with the amount of fakes on e-bay at the time, i just steered clear until i took one in trade the other week.

I'm not a rich man and and found the buying and selling of automatic atches wearing on my finances. probably because of this, i always try to choose the 'safe' option when buying; black or dark faced divers, you know the score.

I've now realised that, as well as being accomplished machines and great value, the G-Shock is VERY addictive! The thing is, if you are a casual collector, you don't have lots of cash tyed up in watches. Yes, loads of Vintage and LE's cost a bit but it's not like collecting Rolex's but every bit as rewarding. So, just over a week ago, i got my first 'G'; the modded 004 in another thread. A week down the line, i have two more and two on the way! I even find myself creating a wish list and formulating a 'purchasing structure' for when i'm a little more flush. The theme of the collection is this, If i like it and i can afford it, i'll buy it! Not just LE's or 5600's, just whatever i like.

Note to Self: Do not buy any more Black 'G' shocks. I need to get more colour in my life!

rutteger
2011-05-20, 09:22
All sounds very familiar. Enjoy collecting the g-shocks also because as well as being great value they are also serious pieces of kit. Always browsing ebay and forums for bargains, plenty to be had for the astute collector.

Anyhow now you've started it'll be hard to stop.

Hi everyone, I'm Simon, another TZer! I've always been into watches, my collection, like many people's I'm sure, has changed direction a bit over the years - I got into G-Shocks over the last year or so and amassed quite a collection, certainly more than I could wear!!! Of late I've started to let some go to fund other purchases, as the collection swings back again to autos! I'm left with a nice crop of vintage Gs and am not quite sure what to do with them??!! I've currently got them for sale on various forums/fora (not sure which is correct!) and I think I should withdraw them and just save them for the next change of direction!!!

Guess I should share some pics!

Firstly is my still in box unworn DW-5300

Hi folks.

Another newbie joining the forum. Ive just made the decision that im going to start a gshock collection.

Ive been collecting watches for years. Usually Seikos, Tags and Omegas but I decided I wanted a digital watch.

I ended up with the G-100-2BVMUR. I wear it constantly and thought Id get myself something different, so I went for the DW6900 NB-7. It is stunning in the flesh. This has given me the bug and Im now after an all black DW6900 and the King of Shocks GX-56-1AER in black/red.

I wish Id discovered g shocks sooner!

Ill post a couple of pics of my soon to be expanded on duo!

Cheers!

Hi everyone.

I'm Mikko from Finland, finally registered to just ask a couple of questions. Longtime reader though, both here and on WUS.

My life with Casio began waaaaay back when I was a kid with some model similar to the F-91W, which I finally bought again a few years ago. Wore that until the strap broke, started wondering about "those funny G-Shock-things". Fell in love with them all, got my DW-5600E, because it was closest to my trusty F-91W... :D
And that was it then, no way to turn back. Fortunately the Lords of Money aren't the best of my friends, so I don't have to buy very many watches...

Now going to break though, and need all of your wisdom to help me decide what to buy. More on that in a new thread though.

I suppose I had better introduce myself seeing as how I have been stomping through the forums in my dirty old size nines.

When I started diving I found out about dive watches and the best value for money seemed to be the DW-6600. That was many years ago, possibly when the watch had just hit the market, seem to remember it cost around 35 quid.

I have had a few watches since then, a Sekonda military style cheapy (just resurrected after a few years with a new battery) a Seiko dive chrono on a khaki webbing strap (did I mention my interest in military vehicles) and a black screwback six quid market bargain dive style watch "Ascot" that I opened up last night to change batteries.

A few weeks ago my local freesheet showed a jewellers advert for Casio Edifice. That got me looking, ordered a GW-3000B 1AER from TikTox, started reading about G-Shocks on the web, registered on WUS but then found this site. And here I am :cool:

In the last few weeks I have augmented my collection with the abandon of a sailor spending money on shore leave:

GW-3000B new
DW-6600 well used, about to receive new battery and bezel
G-9000 3VER - new, from Hong Kong - khaki (did I mention my interest in military vehicles ;) )
G-1800D. stainless, eBay purchase for a daily driver
GW-500U bought new off eBay as a cheap solar/atomic, alternative daily driver
GW-810BD bought off some charlatan on this very forum :p

and a couple currently in the post ...

I have my eye on the Dolphin and Whale GW-6900K-7JR, but I can not bring myself to pay $300 plus for it.
At least not yet.

My girlfriend has a nice collection herself (In4mation, Married to the Mob, and Dolphin and Whale from 2008).

I will take some pics of those, along with some other watches I have as well, when I get a chance.

Hi strongblackcoffee I really like the new Muddie, being able to display two time zones is a handy feature, and I particularly like the scrolling display.

I am developing a real obsession with Gs. I currently have 2: my old G I received as a gift for military servce from my parents about 15 years ago and my new Muddy:
I love this baby!

I am now thinking about a froggie...

Cheers

Welcome to the site :D Out of interest how did you find us?

The GW-9300 Muddie looks really good, nice choice. What is your other G?

Not sure if the Frogs have sapphire, think not from memory. Only one or two of the really top end Gs (MR-G) have sapphire, have read this is because the mineral glass is more shock resistant than sapphire but have no idea as to the veracity of this. Would imagine it's more to do with cost!

Great sunrise shot! (If someone is reading this and doesn't understand what I am on about check Mike's blog for 29/10/11) Has that been processed as HDR or are the colours really that vibrant in your neck of the woods (sorry!) ?

Like the beard sequence, shot for Movember? I may have to do something similar with my wrist and my G-Shock collection.

Anyway, welcome to the forum!

I'm a G-Shock Fan of course... have previously owned all of the M:I versions (DW-5300, 6900, MTG-910DJ-2JF, and commemorative M:I:iii MTG versions) in the past - and hence the username.

Googled and found your forum - I like the size.

Have collected a few Swiss brands - but at the end of the day there's something about wearing a watch that is technologically advanced and doesn't need to be babied. I have a Gravity Defier on the way that should be delivered Tuesday - will post pics when I get it.

Look forward to the pics. G-Shocks are insiduous - I agonised over buying a gravity defier as a decent watch, then realised I needed a daily beater as well, then discovered the cheapness of some G-Shocks on eBay.

Now I have over 50.

So no doubt we will be seeing pictures of several varieties of Shock from you in the next few weeks :cool:

Thanks to you both for the welcomes!

No, I no longer have the M:I set... I was contacted by an M:I freak 2 years ago and was literally made an offer that I would have been a fool to refuse. Plus those watches are still out there...

I've actually owned multiples of the DW-5300 (with both white and red dial outlines) and the MTG's - but I am a notorious trader - not to mention have given a few to my son over the years.

But I will pursue a very-clean 5300, and may grab the bluetooth 6900 in March. The MTG's are just too small for me to wear anymore (diameter wise).

Right now I am in love with that silver/grey Ana-digi Gravity Defier that will deliver tomorrow - as I've never owned a non-black G-Shock, and it provides everything I could possibly need in 1 watch - larger size, S/S bracelet, analog and digi functions/readout, the centrifugal-force bragging rights, Solar, Atomic, and the fact it dresses up and down.

Thanks again - looking 4ward to hanging with y'all.

Welcome Luis,
I'd like to take this opourtunity to warn you and tell you to run whilst you can coz once you get the G bug your in for hours and hours of looking at watch sites, be it forums or shops. But hey the fun is in the hunt.
On the plus side you get to Interact with a great bunch of people on forums, especially this one, and hey there is worse things to be spending your time and money on.

Happy G hunting Tubs

Belated "Hi!" Luis - and a happy new year!

Nice G-Lide, I have similar but transparent purple. Seems like the dollar/GBP divide is still there - when I was involved with cameras it was a rule that a $100 piece of kit Stateside was £100 (plus VAT) in the UK. Same with G-Shocks :(

Have you been down to the ocean yet just to check that the tide is behaving as the watch says it should? Easy for me, I live on a small island with a bridge to the mainland so see the sea each day. Word of warning - I started with one expensive (to me) G-Shock,bought another as a daily driver and 53 watches later ...

Philosophy for some of us seems to be "always have at least one watch in the post", the only way to cut down is to buy things from a long distance so the post takes longer to reach us. Good luck with your hunting, if you need any advice start a thread in here or PM one of us - if you ask three people you will probably get at least three opinions. :cool:

Salut Olivier, bienvenue à G-Shockzone. Je suis désolé que je ne parle pas français mais votre anglais est parfaitement adéquate pour nous de comprendre. Vous pouvez toujours écrire en français et ensuite nous pourrions utiliser Google translate (comme je l'ai fait), mais qui serait probablement causer plus de confusion que de compréhension.

Quels sont vos projets pour votre G-Shock prochaine? :D


( Hi Olivier, welcome to G-Shockzone. I am sorry that I don't speak French but your English is perfectly adequate for us to understand. You could always write in French and then we could use Google translate (as I have done) but that would probably cause more confusion than comprehension.

Whooaaa.. nice to read a French answer on the G-shock forum. Thank you.
But I think French members here shouldn't be so numerous and this forum has been built, developed and used by English speakers. So it's to me to make an effort using your language. Then it shouldn't be very comfortable for you to translate each answer (but I have to assume mistakes...).

Eighteen months after my first G-shock watch, I've just ordered a new one from Japan.
I received the payment confirmation on last Wednesday.
It's a GW-9300GY-1JF, the grey one. But I don't know yet how many time I have to wait for...

Very nice watch! I have bought watches from Japan and they have arrived within two weeks. But it seems like months when you are waiting for something to arrive :)

When you get the watch it is the unbreakable rule of the forum that you must photograph it on your wrist and post it in that week's "WRUW" (What aRe yoU Wearing) thread.

The penalty for not posting photographs is that no-one will comment on your new , expensive and very lovely watch!

Hi Rutteger,
I found your forum many days ago because I was looking for information about new G-shock watches.
Official pictures are always excellent but sometimes it may be better to find more from "normal" people with their own photos and comments.
After reading then comparing a lot of technical parts, I decided to choose a new Mudman.:)
In fact, the GWX-56 seems very nice to my eyes, but unfortunately a little bit too big... :(

Don't worry about my bad experience regarding a GW-2000b. Three years ago I bought one but it this watch only worked one week, no more. My seller was unable to understand and repair it and unfortunately it was the last one in stock. Of course, have been refunded but since this "bad" experience, I've decided to get G-shock watches with numerical display only.
I'm going to remove this reference.

Mais non mon ami - I use Google translate :o

But I have found that saying "Hello", "Good Morning", "Please" and "Thank you" in the language of the country in which you are in is both polite and it helps to break barriers.

The English speaking countries seem to be very bad at speaking even a very basic form of a foreign language. Many countries have been exposed to American television on their national TV channels and people there pick up English whether they want to or not. So we in Britain don't have a problem in communicating as long as we speak S-L-O-W-L-Y and VERY LOUDLY until we are understood.


Tapi saya telah menemukan bahwa mengatakan "Halo", "Good Morning", "Tolong" dan "Terima kasih" dalam bahasa negara di mana Anda berada di baik sopan dan membantu untuk memecahkan hambatan.

Negara-negara berbahasa Inggris tampaknya sangat buruk dalam berbicara bahkanbentuk yang sangat dasar dari bahasa asing. Banyak negara telah terkena televisi Amerikapada saluran TV nasional mereka dan orang di sana mengambil bahasa Inggris apakah mereka ingin atau tidak. Jadi kita di Inggris tidak memiliki masalah dalam berkomunikasiselama kita berbicara perlahan dan sangat keras sampai kita mengerti.

Maybe we could ask our esteemed moderator if Google translate (http://translate.google.com/translate_tools?hl=en) can be integrated into the site ...

Hello everyone, I have been lurking here since just before Christmas, but thought I had better bite the bullet and have registered tonight!

Here is a bit of my 'G-history' ... :)

My first G was a basic black DW-6900 back in 1998 as a 21st birthday present from my parents. This was soon followed by a teal DW-003, and a few years later by another model, whose exact ID escapes me as it was 'borrowed' many years ago by my little sister - apparently it was the perfect watch for a middle school teacher. :) From what I remember, it may very well have been a DW-9000 in dark metallic blue with a double velcro strap and plastic 'buckle'. I really must see if I can get it back one day!

Anyway, around Christmas I dug out my old 6900 and 003 which had been in need of batteries for a few years, did some googling and discovered this forum. :encouragement:

Needless to say, my love of G's had been rekindled, and before long I was the proud owner of a brand new G-9000 in a very fetching shade of olive green, and already planning my next addition! :D

purchased the GD-100NS (N.S.) and am now looking for what seems to be the impossible... GW-9300gy or gb(w/carbon strap).

Have been following the RSS feed but for some reason never registered.
Currently wearing a GW6900 in black, the ultimate watch in my opinion, tough as an ox, multi band atomic timekeeping and solar powered, what more do you need!
Also wear a DW5600E for work on a daily basis, and have a G5600A-3, both of which I've stealthed.

Cheers

Hello gents,

Been collecting G-Shocks seriously since about 2008. I've owned and sold/traded about 13 and currently have three -- a King, Frog and Jason -- in the daily rotation. I joined here in June but hope to be a little more active presence around here.

Here's a look at some of my current collection (G-Shocks that is)

I purchased my first Baby G a year ago. It is model 3772. I purchased my 2nd Baby G about 6 months ago. It is model 5001. I was so pleased to find a Bab G in Rosetone. I have a rose gold wedding ring with meteorite embedded in it. A striking combination. I am so happy with both of these watches. They are both rugged and look nice, even on my smaller wrists.

Hi, I am here for the first time as a registered user. But used to drop in here before. I am from Serbia.
Although I've already had casio watches before, I never had an g shock. I am just about to get one and i think it will be a gdf 100. My first serious casio was an illuminator but cant remember the number. One of my favorite was protrek prg 40, it was really awesome. Above all, i think that g shocks, protreks and simillar are the best value/offers at the market. I also like g shock zone, you can find a lot of useful info and watch reviews and comparisons. So,be free and welcome me.haha.

Hi Xenio, a late hello to you - I've been busy sorting out invoices for work so I can claim my wages - not enough to buy that MR-G (http://www.g-shockzone.com/showthread.php?926-Casio-G-shock-MRG-8100B-1AJF-MULTIBAND-6) unfortunately. Noticed your comment but decided to concentrate on getting some work done, now I can play.

It's been cold in the UK recently but I imagine Serbia must be much colder, what have your temperatures dropped to? There are a couple of G-s that are marketed as low temperature watches; g-9000 and g-7900 spring to mind. Good luck in getting your first G, if you need any help making a decision ask questions in here and we will try to answer.

When you do get your watch it is a tradition that you take some pictures of it to show us - so don't keep us in suspense :D

xenio
2012-02-14, 16:07
Oh,u can bet it is much colder. I think it is the coldest and "snowest " winter for the last 20-30 yrs. It droped down to -22 celsius. So i guess i have to find appropriate g shock for such temperatures,huh?haha. Yeah, i was thinking about g 9000 but too small and g 7900 is interesting. Hmmm dont know. Somehow gdf100 is much closer to me considdering all,look,dimensions and what it does. But i have to collect money for any of them anyway. Here in Serbia my wage is a bit more than 200 eur if u can imagine. If i buy watch then i have to take off the straps and give my kids to eat it cause i will not be able to buy some food,haha. But, im too crazy about g shock so let it be.:-D. thanks for reply. C ya round.
P.S. maybe i get this givingaway watch from g shockzone.........just dreaming.

Hi,

I'm new to forum and I know nothing abt Gshock. More than a yr ago I realised my bf loves Gshock n has been wearing his for more than 10 yrs. but he couldn't bear to pay for new ones because he said e models he likes are very expensive. Yet he has been spending alot more money on me instead. I really wanted to get him one and thought it would b a very easy task but I was very wrong. After surfing e net abt Gshock I realised there are so many models w so many functions for diff needs and wants. I am afraid that I will get something he might not like ESP girls hav diff taste for watches. N I wanted it to be a surprise therefore I have never asked if he had liked all e models I fancied in my search. N I know even if I were to ask he will tell me to save e money.

Therefore I really hope I can get better insight n knowledge on Gshock watches in this forum. Really hope one day I can present him a watch we will both like.

Hi

I only have one G-shock - but I have owned it for about 15 years.

It started life as a DW 002 but after about 11 years the top bezel suffered from resin rot & I could not find a supplier anywhere.

I bought a 6900 case & used my movement, back plate, face plate & strap adapters.

I would prefer the old chunkier style dw 002 case but at least the transplant allows me to wear my old watch.

Maybe one day the resin parts will be remade.

If you go to "gshock.com", you'll be able to see all of the models. My first watch was the DW-5900 series and it lasted me over 20 years!! I then bought a G9000 "mudman" series, which is a great watch. I just happen to see the GA1000-1A4 watch and fell in love with that so I bought it. You (or your BF) will be happy with almost any g-shock you get. I know I am.

A good way to see many of the models in actual use rather than Casio's stock photos is to browse the current and all the previous "WRUW" (What are you wearing) threads on this forum. That way you can see how they look on the wrist and read the comments of the owners.

Nigel Wright
2012-02-21, 13:04

Here is a photo - does not really look different to a 6900 but it was the only way I could find to keep the old module usable.

Nigel.

Nigel Wright
2012-02-21, 13:09
Forgot to say:-

I like the faceplate from the 002 better as it has mode adjust etc marked on it (the 6900 does not as it has it on the outer resin instead) - apart from that the face plate is the same.

I also like how faded the right hand 'eye' has become on mine - when I have seen new ones the background is a brighter red but mine is quite faded.

The things the photo does not show are the strap adapters - I have a generic velcro strap through the adapters. Also the case back is marked dw002 - no special reason to reuse it but just felt like more of the watch is original to me.

Nigel.

Hi

I tried Casio UK & also Casio USA & Tictox - no luck.

I did think about getting a used 002 with say a broken module but I think age wise it would be on it's last legs - if you google resin rot the 002 seems to be one of the models that suffers the worst.

I would love to get a replacement one someday - would be great if casio provided more spares as the outer resin was the only bit of the watch that showed any damage (inner case etc was fine).

Hi Nigel and welcome. I agree about the 002 being a "rotter" through personal experience. I wonder if Casio might be persuaded to produce a 30th anniversary 002 model similar to the new Jason taking over from the DW-001. Then a supply of bezels could become available. Is it worth contacting the Brazilian guys that advertise various aftermarket bezels on eBay?

The problem for anyone wishing to produce something approaching the quality of the original Casio bezel is the cost of modelmaking and tooling for a resin injection mould - many thousands. A lot of money to recoup on investment at 20 or 30 quid a time.

I wonder whether Casio throw their moulds away or if they are on a shelf in a store somewhere, gathering dust?

Why not build your own like this Japanese blogger > http://lippisystem.blog21.fc2.com/blog-entry-398.html !!

As for the moulds who knows, you'd think they'd hang onto some at least....

Hello,

Always Like G-Shocks from the mid 90s but never purchased one finally bought my first G Shock (DW-6900SB-2DR) from the G Shock West Store last month as an everyday watch after my old watch stopped working and have GRX-5600B-2ER on it way this week purchased from Amazon.

Unfortunately I also seen another G Shock in the classifieds which Im interested in purchasing :confused:

I also own 2 non G-Shock watches a Gucci G Watch which I class as my smart watch which I have not worn since I have purchased my DW6900 and I also own a Tag Heuer Formula One watch (which I call the cheap Tag) which I purchased in the early 90s which was my everyday watch until it stopped working the other year and needs looking at to get it going again as well as a new strap.

Loving the forum.

New to the whole G Shock scene. I've seen Casio watches and such that my dad would wear but, it was never really something I paid attention to. I got my first last year. My friend had one and I wanted a watch so I looked online at the different models. My favorite color is red so I went with that and got my G7900A-4. I really like it and I've been trying to expand my collection. I really like the GRX5600GE-1 | GW6900F-7 | DW6900SB-8 | GR-8900A-7 maybe soon ill have all of them

Hello!

I'm new to the forum but not to Casio :)
I had my first Casio when I was quite young. Simple digital watch. But then I saw an SUF-100 in a shop window and I was in love! I got that as a birthday present when I was about 10. And now even though I do own more expensive watches, my G-Shock and Pro-Trek models are a very important part of my collection :)

Nice to be here

Hi All,

I'm a newbie with a love of all sorts of watches. My baby is my Panerai Luminor, which I managed to prise of my old boss for a steal a few years ago. I've got a couple of old school silver casios, one modest g-shock and a moody Bell & Ross that I picked up in Thailand. I've been eyeing up a lot of G-shocks recently and I can only see that as the way forward.

Love g shock watches, have owned and used them on a daily basis since I had my first in the US Marine Corps in the first Gulf War. They're great watches, was in combat with em, locked folks up with em, g shocks dont fail, at least not compared to other watches. Especially like, and will only get solar powered ones these days. Not interested in regular battery operated ones any longer. I'd lke to have this give away so, hopefully this gets me squared away.

Ran out of battery so I had it replaced one day in 2010. I don't know what happened but later that evening I went for a swim but when I checked for the time, my watch had water inside. That was my first G-shock watch. Hoping to win my second one here. Have a great day ahead.

He everybody, my name is Ben. I've been in love with g-shocks since the day I saw them. I got my first g-shock about a year ago and I've been hooked ever since. The style and durability are just off the wall. I would really love to have a red 7900 or 8900, along with the new white Dee and Ricky collab.

Hello,

I come from HK.

I have been I keen wearer of Casio watches and all things G-Shock for over 15 years.

In the last few years the Collection has grown due to my addiction growing to own the cool designs.

I can see my collecting increasing as a result of looking at another G-Shock Forum.


I look forward to participating and reading in the G-Shock world.

Hi I am from Denmark and I just love G-shock!
I have some watches but my Casio G-shock GLX-5600-4DR is my favorite. I love the shape, and the red color is just fantastic.
I see forward to the new G-shock collections and will soon buy a new one.

Best Regards
Rasmus

Hi, i'm Lucas from Argentina. I recently buy a dw6900 and I love it. It was expensive for me, because of the import taxes. I want another 6900 or a 5600 but cannot afford it! jaja.

Respects to everyone

Saludos a todos.

Did the pelican cases come ready for the watches or did you mod the insert?

LOL, ugh yeppers. I'm watch geek at heart and the Panerai's are a reminder of my great friendships within the community. Haha, yeah there's an empty spot for my next Panerai that the BR Froggie keeps occupied until it arrives.

The Pelican cases have what's called "pick-n-pluck" foam. The foam is pre-scored into small cubes that you can "pluck out" allowing you to customize the interior to what you want to protect. The black 1470 case is great for holding G's and after many trial-n-errors I finally have the foam set-up to hold 18 Gs with enough space in between.

Nice one. Good work in having all the watches showing the same time too esp given most were mechanical :)

The pick-n-pluck foam is good stuff, have used it to line my watch draw at home :D

Hi there!

New to collecting.... started in January 2012 and was immediately addicted. Currently have about 10-15 pieces and three in the mail (turbokolor, Mr. Cartoon, and BlVck ScVle). Nothing too fancy... different color variations. Just bought a watch display which i plan to modify (pictures soon to come)
(Edit: just received a refund for the BlVck ScVle after waiting 11 days.... why do some ebay users wait until a dispute is opened before refunding?!?!)

Would like to get my hands on the 6900 Stussy, White evangelion GA110EV, Ontfront GA-110C, 6900 Brooklyn Circus, 6900 Batman, ..... and many more! :-) (ambitious arent I?)

I check the forum every 10 minutes hoping that one of our members will sell something at a reasonable price... enjoy reading on upcoming collaborations and seeing everyone elses collections.

Thanks for having me

Hi, g-shock people!
I'm Luiz from Brazil and I've been collecting G-shocks for 3+ years now.
Each time I get a new piece I become more amazed at how sturdy and tough they are. And I flip out every once in a while when I see a cool model in the blog posts. (as I have flipped out recently with the RAF model. Super sweet. Don't know when they'll arrive in Brazil and at what cost they will be sold, but anyhow)

I really don't care when some people tell me digital watches are for kids. I've been more into the solar models for now.

That's it, guys! Cheers!

Hello! I'll be brief, but after years of G-shock fascination, I figure I better join the community. I have a bad habit of buying, wearing, then upgrading my collection, so you may see some of my stuff in the classifieds eventually. I started with a single G-shock I bought for a military deployment, and it was the beginning of an obsession.
My edifice, G-Shock, Pathfinder collection. (ignore the rest of the junk)

I'm new here but I quite a G-Shock fanatic. Always keep myself up to date with what's in store in my areas (G-Factory) and online (G-Shockzone Facebook) and My G-shock(twitter).

Owning a few of them: BAPE DW-6900 2011 edition, recently bought a Military Green GW-6900KG (CURRENT FAVOURITE), GW-M5600-1JF 1 normal display and 1 negative display, 1st gen riseman, green 1st gen mudman and GW5600R.

Started loving casio when my first watch was a black Baby-G, and as I grow older, i slowly switched to looking around at G-Shocks instead. Also thanks to my brother, I inherited his old skool 6900(retired).

Will continue to increase my G-Shock collection once I start working :). Currently what I hope to have would be the Men-In-Grey series, AWESOME!!!!! oh well prolly summer jobs will get me these hehe

And almost forget.. FROGMAN!!!!!!!!!!

Hi,
I'm new to this forum. My friend just recently showed me this site, telling me I can find great casio g-shocks here. I had my first g-shock when I was still in grade school, too bad I lost it. I'm 26 years old now and working in a lottery outlet (ticketing sales). I'm planning on buying a g-shock one of these days and also my fingers are crossed waiting for the g-shock smartphone - still no news.

Very wonderful and neat looking website!

Hello all

I'm a daily G-Shock wearer from Singapore. :) Been a long time lurker at gshockzone.com for latest news and pictures, but had to join today due to the Mudman giveaway. Hopefully my stay here will be nice and pleasant.

I own 2 Gs from the Street Rider series because I prefer analog reading. The G-shocks are great for my work (gym environment)! They take all knocks and bumps without any problems. Plus their batteries just last and last and last. I haven't had any battery changes since I got them (06 & 08).

I'm thinking of starting a small G-shock collection focused on the Master of G series because I like their special caseback printings.

cheers!

Hey guys, G-shock noob and forum noob as well. I've started off with 2 pieces - GD100MS-1, GA100B-7A - and hope to not become too addicted. I'm trying to pace myself, waiting till my birthday in June to pull the trigger on #3, but I hope I can hold out that long. I'm waiting on the new GA150 series. Any clues as to a solid release date on these? Anyway, glad to be here :)

Hiya,

Only been collecting since September 2010 but already spent way too much on watches and not stopping... I had a DW-9200K ICERC from 1998 until last year and when it broke, that's when the spending began.
