Well Santa brought me a G Shock! I have been wanting one for about 6 months. I finally got a DW9052. Although it is one of the very basic Gs, I really like it. It is replacing a Timex Ironman. The Ironman was a very good watch. It served men for 4 years and is still on the original battery. The G Shock is by far a much higher quality watch. I am looking forward to many years of use out of my new G.
