    Dear Casio, It May Be Too Much to Ask, But...

    Dear Casio,

    I just wish you would make a G-Shock solar watch with large digits and a clean, easy-to read-display without a bunch of busy nonsense. It would display the time and date, and the watch would have a 24-hour countdown timer - not 60 minutes. The year isn't needed, thanks. I can usually remember that. Some of us feel that less is more.

    The strap/band should be comfortable, reasonably-priced, and easy to replace.

    Also, I have to say that your web site (www.gshock.com) really sucks. It needs an extreme makeover.

    Sometimes the images don't appear when a watch is clicked on. The site doesn't work well in general, and it's slow.

    I don't quite get the gangsta/hip hop imaging, but that's just me.

    Hey, did you know that the published support number, 800-634-1895, is STILL a non-working number? It's true! Been that way for months. Do you ever check your own web site?

    I realize that I might sound a little grouchy, but it's Monday morning, after all.

    Peace. Out.

    I think the 9010's face (like all G-Shocks) is waaaaaaayy too crowded/busy for an elegant less is more design. And what about all the unnecessary text on the bezel.

    I was thinking something like this but with a digital face and oc some G-Shock touches.

    Too bad Ventura went belly-up - they made some nice digital watches with a very clean - almost cold - design:

    I didn't know that. Shame.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I have a G7800 that I really like. Very simple display and is customizable with presentation of the day/date/month/year. Heres a postive and negative display. I have the negative and it is surprisingly very readable.








    There is a brand called Junghans which is minimalistic and simple in design. Maybe more futureistic than what you are looking for, but I thought I'd suggest. The model is called Mega and is atomic. Some strap and display options, but here's one for an example. If you are interested, let me know and I can put you in contact with someone here who owns one.

    I agree whole-heartedly. The quality of g-shocks is undeniable but the majority of them are way too flashy. If timex watches were as tough as casio, that's probably all I would wear.
