I cruise the Deal of the Day sites, and noticed one on Shnoop.com for a GW700A:
As I understand it, it is a solar/ atomic watch that seems a bit large for some people's tastes. It's being offered for $40, which seems indeed to be a pretty good price.
I've just about decided to get my first G-shock, and had been eyeing the classic DW5600. I've been thinking about this mainly for times when I want a true beater watch, and don't have to worry or baby the watch. I'm not likely to wear this as much as my others (so I say now!) and don't really think that I'm needing all the specialized functions of some of the higher end G's. Just want something subtle, not too big, that I can throw on and not think much about. The solar and atomic features of the GW700 are appealing especially at this price point, but I'm not sure if this is overkill for me. I can find the DW5600 locally for around $40-$55, so the price isn't necessarily that different between the two.
Any suggestions/ recommendations?
