Show me your G Shocks

Recommended Posts

I do like G-Shock watches and have a couple in my collection.

It may, as Igerswiss suggests, be worth pursuing a special interest in G-Shock watches via a specialist Forum on the subject, although I would not call this Forum "small" by any means and I also believe that G-Shock watches are becoming more popular here on the Forum. It seems that the collectibility of G-Shocks has become more recognised, and I have always thought that Casio has been one of the more underrated brands as far as collecting (and wearing) is concerned. Members who are interesting in learning a bit about the history of the G-Shock might like to read my article entitled, "The Casio G-Shock: A Brief History," posted in my Topics section of the Forum on 31 January 2018.

At Paragon? I'll be there on Friday or Monday. I'll have a look.
I was in KK the week before last!


Yes Siam Paragon where I handed the Blancpain in for repair. They had Breguet and Moser in there too. I’m in KK till the weekend. Enjoy your trip!

I have narrowed it down to two , firstly the GW-M5610-1ER I like the rectangular case and the fact it is a solar

 

My next choice is is made on the basis of go large or go home , the GW-7900B-1ER I like this one as it is big and bold and as well as being a solar it also has the radio controlled time adjust ( this would be a first for me as I have never owned one before ) 

 

 

You may already realise this, but the wording of your post suggests not: The first of your options is also 'radio controlled', and would be my choice FWIW.

Mine are older, but there is definitely a square-g-shock-shaped hole in my collection...

I thought the first one was only solar , thankyou for pointing out to me that it is also radio controlled. :thumbsup:

'Multi Band 6' and the 'GW' bit are the giveaways... :thumbsup:

I have other 'non-radio' G-shocks, but I don't wear them. Once you get used to your real 'tool' watch always telling the correct time, you might find it hard to go back too!

The compass watch is the easiest watch to read, and the thermometer gets used a lot. (It has to come off the wrist for that).

Easy to customise, too. There is a firm that supplies nearly every case and strap you could want.

Link please.:)

I've ordered some "Bull bars" and strap adaptors.

Some of the TKmaxx shops had them for around £20 for a while. Sorry it's not a G Shock.

I have a few, ideal all rounders

@Igerswis

Do you have any BAPE G-Shocks ?? 

I bought one a few years ago but after I got it I'm wasn't convinced that is genuine. I'll try and dig it out and post a pic. I know it's difficult to tell from a photo but as you seem a bit clues up on them I'd appreciate if you could let me know what you think. 

:)

I have the Stussy BAPE:

Also this camo BAPE:

Not sure if I have anymore. In a different part of Thailand for a few days so can’t check.

If you have a frogman you can easily test by doing a screen test on it that lights up all the segments. Try seeing the model on YouTube and the features should all match yours.

It's much older than those, I bought it years ago. I need to have a look for it. It will be in a box somewhere. 

It's the same as this one

Here you go...

This is where I got the genuine strap and bezel for my Rangeman at a lot less than available on ebay.

From this...

Casio GW-9400 Rangeman.

I’ve seen that model online but it’s quite rare. Best find it and take some photos; could be worth more than you think :)

Needs a battery but hardly surprising given I bought it years ago. The outer box is a bit battered but everything is there.

I'm not really sure why I thought it was a bit iffy, it was my first GShock and bought on ebay in hindsight I possibly expected it to be better but having bought a few since it is the same sort of feel.
