- I fancy a new Casio G-Shock – ideas and show me yours
This is the model I’ve got. It’s very big, but bullet proof, large buttons you can use with gloves on, very waterproof, and world time which is quite good for travelling. I wear it on the bike, and strap it to my stem sometimes too, it’s also my go to watch for any situation where a nice watch might get stolen/scratched/broken etc.

What’s wrong with you people? These all look **** awful unless you’re 10.
I’m thinking this. I need a watch for work(workshop)/diy duties. My ‘good’ watch is not 4 figure poncey but I like it and would rather it stayed looking nice.
A g shock should be the watch for the job but I’m not feeling the love. A timex ironman would also do but as I’ve done IMs it looks a bit try hard.Posted 4 years agofinishthatSubscriber
G-314RL here -£40 from Argos last year – plenty of other models from £50 online – thats not bad for something that will keep going for a long time – even the batteries last ages – good valuePosted 4 years agovondallySubscriber
current one. had 4 g shocks in 20 years, survived climbing skiing running biking swimming, instructing and work, one survived a 35mph off with minimal scratches simply the best watch I have ever owned
current one do not like due to fabric strap, fraying and not as sweat proof
would like a g shock with a sunnto size displayPosted 4 years agoross980Member
This is mine. Retro looks (arguably boring) but quite a bit smaller than most G Shocks. Totally bomb proof, sets itself automatically (works abroad too) and charges up by the built in solar cells so shouldn’t need a new battery. Hugely practical. My wife hates it (even though she bought it for me…)Posted 4 years ago
Think it was £65 from Amazon quite a few years ago.
EDIT: It’s an M5600.oliverd1981Member
My spare one of these is still up for grabs

Has anyone ever managed to break a G Shock?
I fell off my bike the other week and must have caught mine on something as I went down – it tore the pin out of the main body. I think the bracelet-type strap is sturdier than the rubber/resin ones so it made the weakest point the watch body instead. Had to send it off to Casio for fixing.
Of course, it went on telling the time perfectly well, but that’s not so useful if it won’t go on your wrist.
It’s a GW-M5610BC-1ER – one of the all-black, negative display, smaller rectangular sorts with solar and atomic clock sync so should never need anything changing or adjusting.
I like it, but then most G Shocks are way too big and/or garish. Casio actually make a lot of very good, tough watches outside the G Shock ranges which are worth a look too.Posted 4 years agoskiMemberBiscuit PoweredMember
This seems to be the least worst (to me) I’ve found. But at £135 its not really a utility watch any more.
That’s the one I have, I think I paid about £70 off amazon, using gift vouchers. I love it.
If you find one you like, set up a camelcamelcamel alert on it, the prices are up and down like a whore’s drawers.
It’s £87 right now…Posted 4 years ago
