    Absolutely, and well said.

    What is the meaning of life? Time.

    Only because it's limited and irreversible, that makes life meaningful.

    Re: What makes us like G-Shock so much?

    I've purely always loved the Casio watch brand in general. Affordable if you only, (like me), want to tell the time and aren't bothered about how high you are or in which direction you're facing.

    Of course there's the great choice of colours, model range, etc and I like hunting for what I consider to be unusual/rare, and of course a good deal!

    A watch is for life, not just for the WRUW thread!

    In a world of watches everywhere we look, carrying a watch might be less a of necessity for the average person. Still, in a world of full of cutting corners and incomplete promises carrying tough and precise instrument might be a comforting reassurance of a persons own goals and values.

    For me Its “bang for the buck” . Casio has exceptional quality > price. You could buy multiple watches without the need to sell one kidney.

    Very true. Time's finite nature is what makes any particular moment important. If we had all eternity then nothing would mean anything because there'd always be tomorrow. Unfortunately many value money over time. Money is a renewable resource that one can acquire when absolutely necessary. Time that is sold to the highest bidder can never be recovered. Cash is a poor man's money, the wise value their time instead.

    The point I'm trying to make here is...let's spend all our money on watches!

    You gentlemen, have brought up a lot of the reasons I like G-Shocks. One thing I will add, I always find beauty in function over form. I like the stuff that most wouldn't consider pretty. A-10 warthog, M-14 battle rifle, old Range rovers. Beauty is in getting $#!% done.

    The A-10 Warthog is the most beautiful sight, especially when needed most!

    Re: What makes us like G-Shock so much?

    ...i was a child and a friend of mine arrived with this absolutely beautiful watch...may be it was a dw5200c because i remember the blue "water 200m resist" ...in 2006, i've seen a dw5600 in a shop and i soon remembered scenes from that summer...in a couple of seconds it was on my wrist
