The twelfth G

And the G-Shock for December is . . .

. . . the DW-5600E.

The votes came in on the watchuseek G-Shock forum and while this one led from the start, there was a strong end push for the GW225A-1 Frogman. However, this classic, iconic G-Shock prevailed and will be on my wrist for the next 31 days.

11+1 Gs. A poll.

I'm done. Here it is November and I don't have a twelfth G-Shock for December. Have a look at this post and vote for the watch you'd like to see me repeat for December. Leave a comment if you like to let me know why you voted the way you did. See you in December.

Tells the time. Day or night. That is all. This is kind of the anti-G-Shock. No date, no alarm, no stopwatch, no second time zone, just the time. I'm going to have to learn to tell the time with an analogue watch again.

Still playing. Just not posting.

Sorry for the lack of activity. A month away from the computer in August sort of killed any momentum I had going for me.

I did get a pic of the watch for August however.

A blue, basic model Gulfman. It took everything the sun, sand and water could throw at it. There may have been a day or two I didn't wear it. It was vacation after all.

September saw the G300 come out.

This watch was the banner model for quite some time on the watchuseek G-Shock forum. The photo was excellent and prompted many "what model watch is that?" questions. I asked that same question myself, and after a time found one for sale.

October's watch is a special edition Mudman.

The TLC Mudman commerates Toyota's Land Cruiser team's entry into the Dakkar rally. The rally was cancelled, so all us watch geeks couldn't live vicariously through the team and wear our fancy watches.

I didn't buy it because of the Toyota connection though. I wanted a colourful G, and this is a very, very bright watch. I've had a few people ask me if it was a kids watch. It realy does get noticed.

Here' s what Casio has to say about the Frogman:

The Frogman has resurfaced as one of G-Shock’s 25 Anniversary Limited Edition releases. With its Solar Power and Dive Function, the Frogman remains an aquatic masterpiece. Engraved with a commemorative 25th Anniversary logo.

Big, chunky, inexpensive, it's everything a G-Shock is meant to be and more.

This is what comes to mind when you say "G-Shock".

Time for a dash of colour round here!

This one arrived from Singapore just in time to brighten things up. April was kind of wintery with all kinds of snow and cold. Even today there was a dusting of snow on the ground early in the morning.

But you can see green grass trying to get through. Go little green grass! Grow!

This is a very interesting model. It's quite loaded with features including one I'll probably never use a tide graph. And did you notice that it's yellow?
