Love mine. Pretty popular still going by this thread…Posted 7 years agochompMember
had one for 10 years I bought on a whim when I went out for the weekend and left my normal watch at home.
It’s been going strong now and been worn almost every day and still on the original battery. The little loop thing that holds the strap in is just starting to split a bit now (plastic strapped version).
Can’t fault it really considering it only cost about £40. Like has been said above, if you like the styling (which not everyone does) they’re spot onPosted 7 years agoroperMember
just for a bit of balance I had one which made it just pas 12 months. Most functions had stopped working and when the ti strap broke I didn’t get it repaired.Posted 7 years ago
I replaced it with an MWC self tritium illuminating military type watch and that has been very good. Keeps very good time and has lasted longer than my G-shock.DelSubscriber
get one that is solar powered and syncs off the time signal and you’ll never have to mess with it at all. waveceptor/tough solar.Posted 7 years ago
makes me a chuckle a bit that my watch cost less than my mate’s breitling (sp?) costs to service. his watch has sat in a drawer for 2 years…skidsareforkidsMember
How accurate is the automatic time zone function on the g-shocks? Or, is it possible to override it? I am interested in one of them for work and riding etc so my omega doesn’t get wrecked, but I live ten miles from a timeline and cross it every day… I generally just stick to “home” time to keep me straight…Posted 7 years ago
I’m in the same boat, and thinking of a GW-6900BC-1ER:

My one is very similar to the picture above and has been going strong for the past 15 years on second battery now (after 12 years from fist one, as I did not use the back light much) only thing is it now fogs up when riding on very cold nights.Posted 7 years ago
For normal everyday wear I use a Nite MX10 that I picked up for £80, tritium markers are really handy at night too. It supposed to be hardy, which the glass appears to be but havent tried shaking it to death on the bike yet-I may do once the G shock dies-if that ever happens.SimonSubscriber
Mine G-Shock is like jon1973’s and goog’s, except mine has a rubber strap.
Been good for the last two years of pretty much constant wear but on last Tuesday’s night ride I crashed into a tree and one of the strap pins broke, so maybe not as indestructible as people are claiming :|. Still a great watch.Posted 7 years agotrailmonkeyMember
I nicked a few of the original G-Shock watches. I wish I’d kept a few now, complete in their cases, instead of selling them to buy drugs and trainers
I’ll remind you of that next time you’re on your high horse about social responsibility and the selfishness of others. 😕Posted 7 years ago
Not all of them, I too have slender wrists which mask the rugged tiger that I really am, I wouldn’t be worried about a Baby-G. If anything it’s just a bit different and plenty of the G-shocks come in silly look-at-me colours. Not sure if this is current or an old model, nowt girly about this one.Posted 7 years ago
