    Easiest butons to push for large fingers

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a g-shock for people with thick fingers? I placed an order on line for the old dw90521v...how about that one? I have trouble pushing the buttons because of my big fingers and it looks from the pictures that it has larger buttons.

    A good choice, given your criterion.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Thats probably a good choice to be honest. Although I second the Frogman recommendation.

    The Gulfman is also a good shout - nice big buttons.

    You should probably avoid a Mudman unless you have superman's strength but little girl's fingers
    They are very stiff unless you boil the bezel.

    Thanks all. JokerNJ- You are right about the mudman. I had one. I love the look of the watch and the specifications, but I did have a hell of a time with the buttons. I have strong hands and fingers but the tips of my fingers were sore after trying the watch. I unfortunately had to return it because it just did not work for me. I loved that watch except for the buttons.

    No I haven't tried that one, but I have a few other requirements:

    -24 hours for the stopwatch
    -24 hours for the countdown timer
    -Ability of watch to simultaneously show current time when in those modes.

    I think the best Gs are those with the simple metal buttons sticking out, like the Frogman, DW-5600, DW-6900/6600. I even think the DW-6900/6600 are best, because of the round shape for better grip.

    Cheers,

    i think the dw-6900 or dw-6600 series is easiest to press buttons, but still you will never press them by accidant, perfect

    Yep. Plus the DW-6900 shows current time in the stopwatch and countdown timer modes (not sure about the 6600).
