G shocks !!

I know there has been many many g shock threads here but figure I’d start my own. Been on a recent G-Shock bindge as of recently lol

Actually - I have three in my collection. Attached are pictures of the three. I had a Rangeman, but sold it off last year because I really didn’t wear it much, was bulkey, and the altitude / barometric pressure was never accurate because it goes off the weather, which is always changing. But now however, find myself strangely missing the ole Rangeman. I did own that particular one for over 5 years.

Anyway - here’s my small G-Shock collection -

Edit - I do have three but the third image doesn’t want to load for some reason

Got the silver first, but the gold kept calling out to me as well.

I wear mine primarily for workouts, which I alternate with a GMT Master II LN on a rubber strap. Functional, reliable pieces - both of them.

I put a new strap on my ridiculously huge Rangeman. It's so much more comfortable than the OEM plastic strap.

Have a Rangeman, compared to 4 other Rolexes it looks high, but very comfortable. Wore it the other day.

I have several G shocks and they are definitely my go to watch for outdoor activities like hunting, fishing, camping or shooting sports. They can handle almost anything. Very rugged and dependable.
