My firs G-Shock GW-M5610-1ER on it's way

Hi Crunchers!

Just bought my first G-Shock, now I'm waiting for it to be shipped.

I wanted one for long time, but 3 years ago bought Casio Protrek PRW-61, and thought that it is a G-Shock, just more wrist friendly.

But today something clicked and I decided that I need one.

I had just two requirements initially:

  1. Tough solar ( because I'm too lazy for battery change, and it requires 3 hour drive to nearest shop to do that);

  2. No Bluetooth thing, that rulled out CasioOak 馃槶

Soon I decided to add strap change.

And that lead to GW-M5610 with positive display, multiband 6 and classic square.

Added two straps to basket to try on:

Excellent choice! I recently picked up one of these myself after trying out a couple squares. I can easily say I'm hooked!

Where are you getting your straps from?

Best choice one can make. Thumbs up. But to be honest: a battery- change at a g is no wizardry, just screw off those 4 screws and swap the 2016 battery.

Case is not glued on or with some gasket that keeps it watertight and easily breaks? But still, batteries are unnecessary waste.

Great choice for a first G Shock! However, be careful. G Shocks are like Lay's Chips, betcha can't have just one! 馃ぃ

Be warned: your other watches will collect dust once this arrives.

My personal favorite watch in my whole collection and a very good place to start with a G-shock. The squares are great watches that wear well anytime anywhere as far as I am concerned. Bullet proof and feature packed. I am a big ProTrek fan also. Great line of Casios. Enjoy that 5610!! Congrats.馃挴
