Hi, just wondering if I am not the only one spending hours going back and forth looking at G shock's and trying to decide which one to get.
I read some of the posts here giving advice on how to choose, but just analyzing what I am looking for does not really solve the problem.
There are so many models to choose from with overlapping features. I tend to like the all-black models, but then there will be 1-2 features missing, or one thing I don't like about the display...I will read reviews where the negative display is hard to read.....then I will look at another model and like some things about it, but then find it doesn't have the atomic feature...then I will go back and forth on whether I really care about the atomic feature....I was all set to buy one with 4 stainless screws on the front, but then read reviews where the screws tend to fall out....I will look at another and start getting ready to hit the "buy" button, but then I start second guessing if I need all of the features it has and do I want to spend that much on a G shock just for beater situations, but then I think about using it for hiking too and would it be nice to have a compass, etc etc etc.
I suppose its a good problem to have so many choices. So far I am zeroing in on a mudman (the one with the 5 rings at the top of the face)...I can get from Amazon for $100 and it looks indestructible...but even that one, I can start questioning if its really the one I want....haha!
I just want a G shock to wear when on a mud run, or playing football on the beach, or working in the yard..times when I don't want one of my expensive swiss automatics being put at risk. At first I thought it would be easy, just pick almost any G shock....but being a watch guy I can't help but look at a bunch of them and find myself going round and round and intrigued by the features.
I suppose I will just get the mudman, its durable as hell and all I really need is a basic watch that can take a beating, that did not cost a fortune - so if it is ruined I won't be bothered much. But I can see how people can get totally into the G shocks, there are a lot of very cool watches in the lineup.
