    Ah no, no, I wrote that post with a bit of tongue-in-cheek slant. Hehe. Ain't gonna get this one. :)

    I kinda figured as much. Good example of the specifications-can-get-pretty-ridiculous thing. :cheers:

    FWIW, I don't have any G-Shocks in the "collection"....but I do have an Ironman.

    It's almost exclusively used for timing my recreational jogging (pronounced with a soft "J").

    Picked up this Ingersoll as a dress watch. Wasn't looking to spend too much and after checking out the Tissot PRC200 I found it to be too small for my liking.

    i love my Ironman watches.... i go through one every 3-5 years depending on what mtn bike crash, dropping it off a cliff, smacking into granite while rock climbing etc incident. but they are light, have good alarms, and i know where every button, light, and other function works... in my sleep :). i've never been into G-Shocks, but with all this recent chatter... maybe i'll check them out!

    It will be a vintage Casio. The early Made In Japan ones are the most desired among collectors.

    Never really owned a decent watch and I remember why now... Was really looking into getting a Tissot Tradition (which I believe is 42mm) but my wrists are so G DAMN tiny! I'm STILL thinking about it, though.

    Questions for you seasoned vets:
    If I were to get a watch with a leather band, where can I take it to get the dual clasps so I don't wear out the leather strap? And how much would a modification like that run me?
