I am considered a rookie collector. What’s up? Started about 9 months ago. I have 16 so far.

Actually I would. Will have to get it from overseas though as the local distributor is expected to put a huge premium over MSRP.

I believed quite a few of us here are G-Shock fans, although there could be a tendency to hide that fact like how I've heard some collectors during watch meets scoffed that G-Shocks ain't real watches for serious collectors. I personally liked 'em- they're fun, colourful, and cheap. Well perhaps scrap that last description- the Master of G and Metal Twisted (MTG) these days tend to cost quite an arm and a leg  :HammerHead:

I started looking at G-Shock after spotting the piece adorned on Keanu Reeve's wrist in Speed (1994). But I was just a poor chap back then so it wasn't until some years later that I found a G-Shock lying by the roadside (those older ones would understand that Internet was not a norm then, so I can't advertise to find the chap whom lost it like the way we could easily do so in these modern times) that I had the opportunity to start wearing the 1st G-Shock. It was badly-scuffed and battered with some parts of the resin scrapped off, having been ran over by many vehicles, but it worked and demonstrated its lastability.

Over the last few years, I started getting more G-Shock pieces over the recent years and some I kept, some I flipped, and some I gave away on my blog vide the Cheap Thrills to readers e.g. a Riseman give-away @ http://andywristwatches.blogspot.com/2014/11/cheap-thrills-casio-g-shock-riseman.html.

The one that I really liked over the years was the Rangeman.


My boy preferred the smaller-sized Mudman as his daily beater.


The MTG was the premium piece packed with all the GPS features under the sun but am not quite used to it, so it stays in the case all the time. Perhaps am just so used to the lightweight of G-Shock in their resin case so not quite sold on the metal ones as yet.


And am always scouting for the next piece. As I said, they are fun, colourful, and cheap. Makes us feel like a kid in a candy stall altogether  ;D
