    G-Shocks for the Beach

    Heading to Mexico next week for a week of r&r. What are people's thoughts about G's to take to the beach?

    I'm gonna take my new 1300G Pathfinder to wear on the plane and, maybe around town, but I'm not bringing it to the beach. It seems like a good opportunity to charge up some solar models. I have traditionally taken my "Men in Yellow" Raysman and/or some of the old version solar Gulfmen to the beach, but I'm feeling a little more protective than I used to about these more vintage models.

    Mudmen, old or new, should be protected from sand -- maybe a solar Mudman is the way to go?

    What do you folks think? The watch will be subject to sand, salt water, dirt, suntan lotion, and the various tortures my seven year old and two year old can conjure.

    Really? But a solar Mudman is a new Mudman...

    Any G-Shock would be fine, but yellow does seem like a beach colour, somehow. I always thought my old red GL-7500 had something nautical about it too.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    OK, ya got me .... why should the MUDman be specially protected from sand? Seriously, not trying to be a butt-head, but why should it be protected? It's designed with mud / sand in mind, no?

    Cheers!

    I think he meant they should be protected from sand (in theory), rather than that they need to be protected like a baby.

    I had took a vacation in 1983. I don't think I brought a watch.

    any g-shock would be fine, but as far as sand is of your concern the mudman is the obvious choice (I would prefer the non atomic version), but....

    I'm gonna take my new 1300G Pathfinder to wear on the plane and, maybe around town, but I'm not bringing it to the beach.
    ...why not wearing the PAW-1300 on the beach? its a great watch, made and meant for outdoors so a little sand shouldn't it stop from working. even if the sensors were filled with grains of sand, a little shower and rinse of water should do.

    I'm not sure why the fear of sand here...

    ...it's fine dust that'll cause any problem with a watch if any.
