Two weeks ago my dad (who is 57) was looking at my g-shock watch, tried it on and you could tell he really liked it. He then kept saying how he couldn't find a watch that kept good time. So I started suggesting some G-shocks, but mostly digital because after recent brain surgery his vision has gotten worse and most of the analog g-shocks are hard to read. But he still wanted an analog watch. So I got off the digital and started showing him the GA100s, GA110s, GA120s, but he kept saying the hands were hard to read. I didn't want to show him the aviation series and scare him away because he is usually frugal (probably why his watches never seem to have good time). But I gave it a shot just to see. Showed him the GW3000BB-1A
He really like it and then saw the price and wondered how the GA100s were so much less. I then explained the solar powered and the atomic and how it works. He started to realize that it might be a good purchase. I took him to Macys to see if they had it and to have him try it on. He usually wouldn't do this after seeing the price but I talked him into it. We got there and I was trying on all the different models and trying on the new G9300 that I really want now. I had him try the GW3000BB-1A and I don't think he wanted to take it off, you could instantly see how much he wanted the watch. This is new because my dad is one of those guys who just goes out and buys most of his own gifts. He usually returns a lot and gets what he wants. So Christmas is coming soon and I told my mom I would keep checking ebay and amazon to find a good price so we could get it, and my mom calls me yesterday to say she bought him the watch from Macy's! My dad had came home from work early and had to show my mom the watch at Macy's. She must have seen how much he wanted it and bought it for him using the friends and family sale. So there is going to be another proud G-shock owner (my dad)!
So my dad is a little tech-savy but not the greatest. I have been trying to find youtube videos or other reviews on this watch to learn more so I could help him use his new watch. All the videos I find on youtube are in other languages, so I am asking you fellow g-shock owners if you know of anywhere to look or any good reviews? Or also if any of you have this watch and what to expect.
