    Off topic The difference betwen analog and digital time is analog you see the time digital you read the time.

    Anybody ever notice this? Ever since I was in grade school I am used analog time. In analog you see the time. While in digital you read the time. Sometimes the brain is used to seeing the hour and minute hands verse reading digital time. It actually takes less time reading an analog watch than a digital watch for me. Sometimes while I am doing a task I don't even have to move my hand to see the time. I can actually work and see the time all in one motion. This is why diver style watches are cool.

    The MTG is retired and the 5600 too. Right now, the only working G-Shocks that I use and enjoy are the Riseman GW9200-1 and the GW6900-1

    If I can own a Rolex Submariner I would. I know they are tough too, their homages are tough. Trust me.

    I notice that also. More now since I've started wearing a Kampschwimmer-style watch (12-3-6-9) with no minute hash marks. My perception of time is more "visual" with that dial.

    I come from a working man's perceptive. If you get caught seeing the time. You can have your boss tell you why are you looking at the time. I know how things go.

    I don't own a analog G-Shock. Now I want one for my collection. I am a Casio man. They are rock hard. Even the 10 dollar Casio watches that have fog in them still work.

    What about those who glance at their watches but does not look at the time? They just want to look at the watch in general? ^_^

    I use less time to read a digital panel, and add time to actual to calculate a new time, I think our brain like analog or digital, depending on what you use by default.
