I have searched through the past three pages of this subforum and didn't see anything that looked like this question. If it's a common question forgive me:
I have had two G-Shocks before (one bought years ago and one gifted to me by a co-worker a few years back, which I forwarded on to another buddy who needed one and didn't have much cash).
I am a Suunto Vector fan (having worn one at least five years) and love the "large, digital, clean" face. I am thinking about another watch for Christmas and am STRONGLY leaning toward Suunto (Core likely). I DO find myself admiring G-Shocks however...
FOR ME however I don't care for the "busy" faces with all the writing, cross members, top mounted sensors, etc., which ultimately leaves a small readout (compared to my Vector) which is no bigger than my wife's Timex, even though the overall "face dimensions" are as big (IF NOT BIGGER than) my Vector. I realize this is subjective-many of you probably like the looks for the same reasons I don't...and that's okay!
The number of models (in production, announced, discontinued but still available, NOS for sale, old ones for sale, etc.) are STAGGERING however. I'm looking at some pic threads on this subforum, but I'm wondering which G-Shocks you guys would suggest that might be relatively "clean faced".
I have a BIG wrist (almost 9") so I like the biggest of the big but "big" isn't an absolute requirement. I don't care for the digital/analog versions.
I HAVE to have POSITIVE FACE also.
Thanks in advance for any help/replies!
