Speaking of "Bread and Butter" G-Shocks I really like my G2500-3V. It looks a little retro and is somewhat lighter than my other G's, but for one of the less expensive G-Shocks I think it looks really cool and has some great features. I especially like the year display and how the numerals "scroll" when the time changes between minutes and hours :-S . I've not seen that on any other G I have. Do other G models do this? This one is a dark gray (almost black) with a yellow-green background and blue light with a beefy resin band, data memory and so on. A good addition to my ever growing collection.
