    Which G-shock for a general basher!

    Morning All,

    I want a G-shock for a real basher but can't decide, which one to get. I have kind of narrowed it down to two but any other recommendations would be great. Except if you are recommending any G-shocks that look like they have come out of a grab machine :laughing8: i.e GW56 :lol:

    These are the two contendors



    or




    or

    any other suggestions

    Thanks,

    Ben

    Get the GA100. Although the King of G's is better, I don't want you to have the same watch as me :lol:

    Although the stealth GX56 is awasome!

    My wrists are only 8.5" so I find the GA100 a bit too big. For me the gulfman or mudman are the best Gs there are! The size is right, I like the styling and the functionality is perfect.

    IMO if you want a beater, it shouldn't be overly large. For me the only beater Casio you would ever need is a GW5600 (or similar).

    I agree :D

    Big fan of the G here, but some of those monster Gs are just plain too big.

    They might look more sexy, but for daily wear the most practical one is the GW5600

    Solar and atomic - put it on your wrist and forget about adjusting it for EVER ... or until it breaks, which ever comes first.

    I bought a GW5600 a while ago and meant to use it just for kayaking but ended up wearing it almost every day since I got it.

    DW-5600E/GW-M5600.

    G-100 if you prefer analogue.

    Re: Which G-shock for a general basher!

    haha Ben hates any GW56, to be honest I liked em, had everything you want. But when I got the GX56, the GW just seemed to small and child like IMHO.

    The GX doesn't wear to big at all, IMO. Plus so comfortable.

    I“ve got a “codename“, which is the same size and imo it wears as big as it is.
    When going watch bashing I strap the basic DW5600 on.
    Unobtrusive, indestructable, cheap; simply on time.
    For little extra cost you can have the upgrade to solar/ rc.
    As a general basher it is unbeatable.
    Add taste/preference and the situation changes and no longer adresses “best suitable“ but “best liked“.
    When the going gets tough, the DAF gets going.

    Ordered one of these last week as a DIY/gardening watch, whilst they were still shown at £45: :D

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001 ... ss_product

    Got an email this morning to say that it's shipped. Looks like the price has just gone up as well!

    Exactly. That's what's so cool about them. You should get one.

    Would for sure go for the GA-100 all black. I have actually considered it for myself.
    What I also have had a look at is the Gw-2500

    Another one for the GA100.

    Loved my stealthy black one so much, bought a white one now for the summer.

    Re: Which G-shock for a general basher!

    Well, I voted "other" because I thought of the GW-6900-1ER



    The reasons are, it's relatively inexpensive (and they do pop up at the SC from time to time), it's solar and atomic, has a general "stealthy" black look but it doesn't have a negative dial (great for shiny California/Iraq, etc, not so good for dark, rainy UK) ant it has a good size to it without being huge.

    Mind you I don't own any G-Shock (or any other digital for that matter) but if I did it would be a 6900 or the already mentioned GW5600

    Oh yes it does...



    ...unless you exclude it because of those yellow (?) letters in the middle? BTW, the model is a GX-56GB-1.

    I did spot that one but it has yellow in the middle :P :(

    Re: Which G-shock for a general basher!

    Did you decide as yet? Out of the two deffo 'The King'.

    However as a beater I'd chose something less chunky, perhaps the GW-M5600 as others have mentioned or even just a vanilla DW-6900.

  35. #35

    Re: Which G-shock for a general basher!

    Not decided yet, it definately won't be a normal Gw56 as I can't stand them.

    If I could get an all black King of G's I would go for that.

    I see, the GW-M5600 is the GW56 grab machine special. Let me know which teddy picker dishes these out :wink:

    Think Kutusov's recommendation of the GX-56GB Black X Gold or Waveceptor version GXW-56GB is about the closest you'll get to all black. If none of these suit sure if you wait long enough Casio will do a King in a colour scheme to suit.

    Bit late to the game, but I would get a riseman
