    Gotta love that these are G-Shock "beaters" so of course they still look new. LOL

    Re: let's see your beater

    Here's one that's definitely worn as a beater. It belongs to my 10 year old son. He got it this past Christmas, and has scarcely taken it off since (the only reason its off now is because they won't let him wear it during soccer games). It has been on him while he climbed trees, played in the dirt, dug in the sand at the beach, went body boarding, played with the dog, ran about 3-4 miles per week at run club, you name it. He doesn't even take it off to shower or sleep. It does my heart good to see him wearing a G the way a man is supposed to.




    Nothing in his pockets but Knives and Lint

    I can not imagine how one can sleep with a Rangeman strapped on, it is way too bulky.

    I have mine strapped on 24/7. In fact it is a very lightweight comfortable watch.

    Re: let's see your beater

    Knives and Lint, that is very cool Great to see your son properly using Rangeman, seems like it was the perfect gift.

    I don't have a beater that I beated myself, but last year I bought two 6600B with a help from our member Davidro, they arrived somewhere from east China, so I would like to think some worker used one of them (more beat up) on construction site or somewhere, when it arrived, one of them had red sand all over the strap. Not sure what kind of sand, but would be interesting to know how this watch was used.

    It's visible, the left one I just had to replace the strap and bezel and it was good to go. But the right one has patina on LCD, seems like it was exposed to sun a lot thought its life. Like I said, by some worker doing work outside for 15 years





    Red sand on the strap



    So here they are, I restored the left one to look almost new...



    ... and put an old 6600-1 bezel I had from older restoration on the right one, kept the original chinese strap.

    It's known among my other watches as beater, but I haven't had the chance yet to use it that way

    6 years of everyday wear. I bought it new in 2005 and finally retired it in 2011 when I bought a new G. Took the battery out with plans to restore it but havent yet. It still fires right up without a battery when put in direct lighting. My other old beaters have been restored and look like new.

    I guess you have a picture of it, but it wasn't showing. It's good to know a solar watch with rechargeable battery can function without the battery. Didn't know that's possible.
