    Which Analog G-Shock to round out my Collection?

    I know everyone likes the GA100 but I'm thinking it's to big for my 7.5 inch wrist..
    Other analogs G's worth checking out.. Wouldn't mind Solar or/and Atomic but it's not a deal breaker..
    And I'll be using this for work..phyical work ;)

    Me too, even though my wrist is 7.25". I tried one on the other day and it made me smile, but not for the right reasons.

    There are people who like anabolic watches, but I can't help wondering if Casio has lost as many sales as they've gained with this one.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I know it's not a pure analog, but I've been thinking of one of these for awhile now, it's a G100-1BV:

    for physical work i would also recommend the G-100, a truly classic, cheap, durable, 10 years battery, tacticool




    if you don't mind spending a bit more money, the GS-1200B is in my opinion a very nice G. no digital gadgets, no useless chrono subdials - just pure three hands design, tough solar, atomic and - most delicious - tough movement, check it out:

    I liked the GW-2000 when I went looking for an analogue G - its a looker for sure, and has a decent function set.

    I've also been looking at:
    AW590's
    AW591's
    AWG100
    AWG101
    And the Street Rider series

    I want to make sure that the digital area that can be used for day-date is large enough to see clearly..

    Budget is about $80

    Re: Which Analog G-Shock to round out my Collection?

    Hi,
    I really like the GS-1050, GW-2500, GW-2000, but I think all of those are over the budget. When it comes to ana-digi/analogue watches, I think there are some very nice Casio models outside the G-Shock lineup, like the AMW-707, AMW-706 or MTD-1058. All of those should be well within the budget. And they have steel cases with standard lugs so you can switch straps easily.

    Greetings, Sedi
    Cheers

    CASD, I was surfing around Amazon and found this interesting model. I'm not sure if it's what you are looking for? But it was only $66.00 shipped in the budget. It looks kinda of cool

    I bought an AWG100-1A about a month ago. Great visibility on the analog display. The digital windows are a bit small, but are pretty visable since it has a positive display. I find it quite comfortable.
