Everyone has his own favorite, and the one you hate someone else will love, so it's all good. That said, I would like to submit the lowly G-100 as the worst-designed G. Ever. I think Cal .45 commiserated with me way back when I bought this, is anyone else unfortunate enough to own one?
I bought this horrible thing because I liked the snow camouflage pattern on its band and face, and the "Resist Since 1983" patch hearkens back to the anniversary editions of 2003. Beyond that, there isn't anything else to like about this creature. Let me count the ways it will make you hate it:
-Thickness: the watch stands fully NINE-TENTHS OF AN INCH off your wrist when you wear it (which luckily won't be often, because it's a wretched watch). You can't so much as walk through a doorway without snagging it and scuffing your poor doorway.
-Mechanism: The analog hands can only be advanced FORWARDS (and as slowly as you can imagine). Think about this a second. Daylight Savings Time? Module running a bit fast? Too bad. Either pull the battery out and wait an hour (what I do) or else sit through 15 minutes of misery and handcramps while you wait for the watch to glacially advance 12 hours. And hope you're paying attention when it finally gets there so you don't go over and start again :)
-Backlight: the anemic, tiny backlight BARELY lights the microscopic digi screen at the bottom. And the lume on the hands, although it's there in quantity, is practically invisible at night. Hopefully there's a full moon glaring off your white analog face when you need it!
-Digi Module 2327: terrible. Every mode switch first shows you what mode you're arrived at for around 2 seconds. You have to wait before you can enter or do anything. Only plus side: when the alarm is turned off the screen reads "OFFAL", which is the correct label for this terrible, terrible instrument :)
Yes, yes you are!
So, what's your least favorite? Have a ball!
