Last week we kicked off our G-Shock Collector’s Corner by showing off East Coast Radek’s colourful bunch of Gs, and we put the call out to other G-Streeters with great collections. As always, you didn’t let us down! Up this week is Nedsrock, a dude with dozens of G-Shocks and a penchant for the Frogman line in particular. Nedsrock gave us some great pics of his collection and told us about how he fell in love with G-Shock.
Thanks for the pics Ned, when did you first start getting into G-Shock?
Nedsrock: I have always been a fan of G-Shock since I was a little boy, but I really started collecting in August 2009. At first I was searching for a GW7900B-1 because my favorite colour is black, and I got into a forum in my country and met a few friends who collected G-Shocks.
From there I searched and bought new release G-Shocks. I only had one Frogman but I got so attached to it and other vintage G-Shocks. For me, Frogman and older vintage G-Shocks are more difficult to find and that makes it more fun to hunt them down.
Awesome. What’s your favourite G-Shock?
It’s got to be the G-Shock Frogman DW8200BK-1JF, which is known as the ‘Black Knight’. The hardest G-Shock I have found in great condition is the G-Shock Frogman DW8200B-9A, also known as the ‘King of Frogman’.
Why do you love the Black Knight?
My answer is quite simple, I always like black, and the Black Knight for me is the best black Frogman cause it’s really full black.
What’s the next G-Shock you’ll buy?
I want the G-Shock GWF-T1030A-1JR Frogman 30th Anniversary. I like the colour combination of black and red, but the retail price is too expensive, hopefully someday I’ll get it!
