    Different strokes for different folks. The good news is you aren't required to own one if you don't like them.

    I have had several G-shocks over my 20 years in the Army, they are great watches. I have to get a Rangeman soon.

    I may have a smaller wrist than most. I have no problems with the way the watch wears.

    Close-up photos of watches on wrists often disproportionately magnify the watch in relation to the wrist.

    Why a g-shock? It may be ugly, but it's better looking than I am.

    Okay I used to think like you OP but now after I see more of my friends wearing it It started looking pretty good.My friend gave a gshock watch and i was hooked.

    I definitely agree with G shock being durable.I love going on hikes and camping trips and whenever i go I always wear my Gshock Watch.My friend gave me a more advanced G shock Military Watch.Image Below:


    It feels pretty cool wearing that watch.But of course in the end it depends on what kind of watch person you are.What is your eye for watches basically.

    Got the Rangeman. I love it so far. If it holds up as long as other G-Shocks I have had in the past, I will be very happy.

    There is something appealing about a product that is very utilitarian and extremely durable. Almost as if it is a challenge. Are you tougher than this watch?
    My 5600 will be here after I'm gone.

    Friend of my was deployed overseas. His band broke and his gshock dropped to the road where a duece and a half drove over it. He picked it up, secured it with a little gorilla tape and went about his business. Can't beat that.

    I roll a pathfinder and it has taken a beating over the years. "Ole Faithful".
