    Analog G-Shock

    I'm looking for a low profile analog G-Shock watch, not big and bulky like most of the G-Shock's.
    What do you think aboutAWG-100 or AWG-M100-1A?

    I have an AWG-M100A, the one with the blue metal bezel. I like it a lot, and it is comfortable, but it is pretty small. The diameter of the dial is only about 27-28 mm. Still, it's a good looking watch, and I like that both hands are white (not a fan of the red hour hand on the positive LCD version). The negative LCDs are pretty much unreadable in anything but bright light, so I use it like an analog watch.

    If you want a smaller, ana-digi G-Shock, the AWG-M100 is a good option.

    It is a very nice smaller size. Fits under jacket and shirt sleeves very nicely. Have been wearing my AWG during this winter quite a lot.

    Lume isn't very good, doesn't last very long. This is normal G-Shock lume which isn't the best in comparison to Seiko.

    It has a great backlight that lights up the hands. Backlight is orange/yellow in color. Negative is that it doesn't light up the digital displays. So you can check the time easily, but the other features are better to use during the day.

    Really can't recommend the black dial white hands model enough, it's one of my favorites.

    Didn't we just have this conversation in the Affordable Watches forum?

    G-Shocks are bulky on purpose, so they can absorb shocks. All the analog ones are going to sit higher on the wrist than a conventional watch, and there are resin bumpers that extend up past the bezel in order to protect the crystal. Now, there in one exception to this bulky rule in the G-Shock world and that is the 5000/5600 series, which are all digital-only. They are tough as all get-out, are the thinnest G-Shocks made, and are the spiritual successor to the original DW-5000 issued in 1983, which was the first G.

    But to reiterate, there are no low profile analog G-Shocks. I have a GA-1000 and a GW-3500, and neither are particularly thin but then again I don't find them objectionably tall either like the Rangeman or MudMaster are. Both fit under my jacket sleeves well enough, but admittedly not as easily as my GW-M5610.

    I'm not aware of any other current, small, ana-digi G-Shocks in a similar price range. Maybe someone else has some ideas.

    If a non-G Casio would work, you might look at the various AQ-S800 and AQ-S810 models.

    Looks nice, but it's thicker than the AWG-M100 and it uses two tiny non-rechargeable batteries.
