I follow the G-Shock forum and am intrigued by the technology and ruggedness of the line. What turns me off somewhat though, is the image that the line portrays. I may be off base, but it seems to be a teen to early twenty something wearers watch. It's cool, rugged, hi-tech although a bit bulky. I'm almost 60 but an active runner, sports car enthusiast and engineer.
So, you see that the technology and features of the G-Shock fit my personality but not the image / look of the G-Shock with my age. Am I wrong?
I tend to wear divers... Luminox, Seiko, Pulsar, Dievas, several are PVD and titanium.
When I run, i wear a few hi-tech looking Nike or Casio running watches.
I've had my eye though, on some G-Shocks and am looking for you guys to point me in the right direction, recommend a model and perhaps convince me that I'm not too old for a G-Shock.
I find that digital displays are difficult to read without my reading glasses, so I tend to like analog except for my running watches with very large digits.
I'm wondering if the G-Shocks that receive the radio time signals add much bulk and cost? Are they worth it vs the inherent quartz accuracy?
I'd prefer something dark in color / black and not overly bulky or large.
