Hey Mr. Rick.

Where did you acquire all of your Chris Wards?!

Are these even available straight from them? I only see new models but nothing on the old ones. It seems these do not come up for sale either on eBay nor watchuseek, etc. Maybe Chrono24!?!

 

 

Thanks.

I bought most of my CWs directly from them as new. I bought a few, like the C15, on ebay. I waited a long time for this C15.:D

The MR-G is an amazing watch, as it has GPS atomic timekeeping, which means wherever you are in the world, the watch will use GPS to automatically adjust its time.

The MRG-G1000 series also retails for $3,000, but you can find them on Amazon/fleabay for more or less.

I don't think I could bring myself to pay Omega/Rolex prices for a Casio or any battery/electric powered watch. But then, I also don't like any of the g-shocks, so it may just be I don't get it. :/

 

Mr. Rick, I love that C15.

Mr. Rick, I love that C15. 

It's great that we have options. I appreciate everything except for cheap knockoffs of the original manufacturer's watches.

I got to try on and demo a couple of Apple Watches one on one with an associate for about 20 minutes. I must say, the sport band is really, really comfortable. I tried on the stainless steel band as well and the integrated magnet to clasp the band tight is strong and is implemented well. I think the lower priced models are a good deal, and the higher priced models, not so much. Especially since you can change the OEM bands to 3rd party bands, on the fly.

Wait a tick, there's a G-Shock watch that'd I'd personally own? What is going on right now, I never thought I'd see this day. That said, I'd spend the 3 grand on a different watch in my wish list.

I thought the same thing until a friend sent me this link http://www.watch-insider.com/news/g-shock-mrg-g1000-an-icon-comes-of-age/?mc_cid=b0277420e9&mc_eid=2df6eea2e9 and I'm pretty impressed with it:biggrin: 

 

Tasty Trio:wink_face:

Yes - the MT-G and MR-G G-Shock are really poised luxurious timepieces that are also at the apex when it comes to accurate and versatile atomic timekeeping as well.

I think you are correct on both accounts Moe, I don't think the asking price of either is too far fetched as well:wink_face:

Those MT-Gs are easy to find for around $700 in stores and online. You really have to see it in person it looks even better. At that price it is awesome, it was just too much for me to use and beat up in a hospital setting.

Come on Indie, that's just the Texan in you. I have a nice lime green pair of Nautica shorts that would set that baby off:eek: LOL Matter a fact I could wear my baby blue Shuffle with these

 

 

and it would be Easter Sunday all over again:wink_face:

For a hospital setting I see nurses/doctors with the resin type of G-Shocks on.  The Rangeman or even a smaller aviator would be great for use to beat up in a hospital setting.

I totally understand!  I like it because it is different.  Let's just say no one in person has said anything bad about it to my face.  :normal_smile : (they seem be generally intrigued positively)

 

My first G-Shock is the purple one, and I thought that was really tough to wear at first, but after I wore it, I had more compliments regarding that one than my ESQ Fusion watch.

 

Here's the purple G-Shock:
