I'm new here and I have looked around prior to registering and can't really find what I'm looking for using search facility for 'kids' or 'boys'.
I have just come back from Spain where I bought a cheapo Casio for my son. Well talk about you get what you pay for! My son is 9 years old and pretty careful with things. I let him loose on some pretty expensive camera equipment and his fine, his present cheap watch has one small scratch on a prespex face. This Casio has been worn for 3 days and has about 6 scratches on the face. I put it down to the face not being recessed or protected by a bezel. I'm prepared to put that down to experience, and I would now never buy a watch like that unless the it was sapphire glass or similar.
I told him that when he could tell the time properly I would buy him a digital watch. Baby G is a no no as he had to educate me that it's basically a woman's watch (although his cheapo Casio is too).
I've been looking at the G-Shock range. Is it a non-starter? The smallest I think I can find is GW-M5600-1ER Wave Ceptor Radio Controlled G-SHOCK Mens Digital Resin Watch. I'm happy to spend that kind of money on him as he is not one of these kids that wants one thing today and then something else later.
I'm not too sure if he'll go for retro look
I need to get a choice for him to choose as you can guarantee if I choose a black watch, he'll want a white one, and vice versa.
Any suggestions, and sorry to impose such a big ask on my first post.
Thanks in advance.
