    Most Popular for 2017 Casio watches

    Well I'm trying to reach a watch collecting goal... also "the perfect EDC goal". The watch will be the most worn in the collection and will take a beating. After careful consideration i would like to choose only one Casio(gshock, protrek) to be part of the Goal. In order to choose which one ill try a few of the most popular ones out before deciding which one is perfect for my edc. At the moment I'm trying out the pro trek 3100y. I like the size and it's functions but I feel like it might not be rugged enough for for my EDC. What are your experiences with the 3100y? What should I try next?

    The Japan-made GW-5000-1JF is one of the most beloved G-Shocks of all time. Can't go wrong with that one. Unless of course you don't like squares.

    "When the shadow of the sash appeared in the curtains it was between seven and eight o'clock and then I was in time again, hearing the watch. It was Grandfather's and when Father gave it to me he said I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire.... I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all your breath trying to conquer it."
    --William Faulkner, The Sound and the Fury (1929)

    I feel like I would enjoy the size. Why do these have such a high price tag? Can't I get the the same features at a more affordable price?

    Good question!

    From Wornandwound

    "For the exact opposite of value, but for true excessive watch nerd pleasure, I’ll introduce the Japan-only GW-5000, which is a modern tribute to the very first G-Shock model, the DW5000, which came to market in 1983.

    The $325 GW-5000 looks like any $40 “square” G you can buy at Wal-Mart, and that’s its beauty. Only the wearer knows it has a metal case, a DLC’d screwdown caseback, solar and atomic features and a softer resin case and band.

    Is it overpriced? Of course.
    Is it awesome in its ridiculousness? Of course.

    Non-watch people will think you are an idiot for paying over $300 for a plain G-Shock that you have to order from Japan. But that’s why they are non-watch people."

    GW-5000 DLC

    The various GW-M5610 models have the same module, but no steel case or screw back.

    If you don't need ABC features, you might also check out the GD-350 or GD-100.

    GD-350 x2



    And don't forget the GD-400 tough guy:

    GD-400HUF. Particularly like the positive screen on a stealth watch.

    For a nice, ana-digi ABC, check out the Gulfmaster GWN-1000 or the PRW-6000/6100.
