Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I have two G-Shock watches now. I beat the hell out of one of mine for years and never had an issue. It solar powered, sets the time/date automatically, and is very lightweight. I not a huge fan of digital but I love the analog/digital combination. I'm always knocking them into things and they still look pristine. On paper, you can't ask for a better watch. My dream watch is a Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch, however. It's a bit out the budget for a college student, so for the time being, G-Shock it is!
