I'm thinking of getting a nice DW6900 series G-Shock (hopefully the 20th Anniversary model) and something I do every weekend is play airsoft.
What initially drew me to G-Shocks was a friend of mine in the Airforce that I play airsoft with came back from active duty in Africa and he brought back a basic DW6900 he "found" in one of the transport planes. Not sure if Army, Marines or airmen where in the plane but he brought one back and I thought it looked really cool. I've also seen G-Shocks mentioned by other guys that are in the service and seen them in movies and stuff so it'd be the perfect accessory for my airsoft military "load out".
however I know they're tough watches but are the faces made of any particular impact resistant material? I can't tell you how many watch faces I've seen shattered by the small plastic pellets we play with that fly at 400 feet per second. the last thing I want to do is take a cherished $200 rare G-Shock out to a game only to get it broken.
so do you guys know if the faces are strong and if maybe you've had an experience where one of yours took a hit from something and lived?
thanks in advance
