VERY TRUE. also, there is the phenomenon where you buy a G you “like” -just as a new style that you would sell your soul for comes out. It’s already happened to me twice.Awesome insta-collection!
But, definitely a good idea hitting pause for a little while. Not because I'm advocating that you should have only that many G-Shocks, but because I can pretty much guarantee that:
(1) your G-Shock taste will go through multiple phases before you settle down with a balanced collection - eg when I first started collecting, I bought about 8 or more squares in the space of a few months, only to cull that down to 2 (one of which is a GW-5000, which you have to wear to appreciate, I reckon); and
(2) the world of G-Shock (as T4P alluded to) is almost overwhelmingly huge, and you'll feel the siren call constantly, particularly on this forum - I've found that it's more enjoyable settling in for a long ride (in retrospect this is a similar point to #1 haha).
That said, do what makes you happy! That's what this hobby is all about. At the end of the day, even a single watch is arguably redundant, given we carry our phones everywhere.

Ha! Nope. 56 years old. Married 21 years. Two kids. 16 and 19 years old.I hope your not going to use the same approach you used for knives and watches to start a family. You know, have octuplets.
"Which" Rangeman? The GW-9400 was the first gen. The GPR-B1000 is the latest gen. The GPR-B1000 is MUCH bigger than the 9400.Crap... the Rangeman is calling to me. It looks big, but I think that's kind of the idea, eh? Big and bold?
I have a 7-inch wrist. Not a big guy... 5' 8". Also... 56 years old. Going to look ridiculous? Supposed to look ridiculous? LOL!
Yes... the 9400... original basic black. This one:"Which" Rangeman? The GW-9400 was the first gen. The GPR-B1000 is the latest gen. The GPR-B1000 is MUCH bigger than the 9400.
The 9400 easily works on a 7" wrist. It may look big at first, but you can easily get used to it. It's made to look that way. And the 9400 is one of the most full-featured Gs for the money. Has some neat features like a one-touch, 1,000 hour stopwatch. IMO it needs to be in just about every G lover's collection.
I'm assuming you meant the 9400. There are a LOT of versions of it that have been made. Check out this G-central link for a look at them: Casio G-Shock Rangeman GW-9400: All Models Released – G-Central G-Shock Watch Fan Blog
Be advised, some of them are limited edition, or just very popular because of the color scheme alone - so prices will vary WIDELY. Yet functions of the watch are exactly the same for all of them. Many have carbon fiber/resin bands, and some others have just resin bands.
Solid choice. That one comes in two versions - the JDM version w/a carbon fiber strap, and the export version with just a resin strap. Naturally, you'll pay more for the c/f strap version.
