Had some free time over the weekend, and thought i'd take some pictures.
Black/Gold seems to be a running theme, but i blame that on the original G i had that started it all 25 years ago.


GW-1030A "30 Stars"




DW-6930C "30th Anniversary"



DW-9052 Everybody's favorite workhorse, not as cool as a 9000, but does the job.



And now for story time :)


AW-500's have a special place in my collection, mainly because it was the first "G" i aquired back in 89-90 for my birthday (AW-500G-1E).
Unfortunately my original watch no-longer exists, i took it in for a battery change around 1996 and the jewlers managed to break the piezo alarm, and not long after it succumbed to resin rot and eventually fell apart. I kept the head hoping to repair the watch one day, but that too eventually got lost.


So its one of the few watches i may have gotten carried away and collected the dial variations mainly due to nostalgia, and partly because i had the black/gold version and remember pining for the black sliver version as well.


1989 AW-500-1EV (200m export version)
