    GX-56BB or other solar resin square?

    Hi all,

    Still fairly new to G-Shocks and considering a GX-56BB for its; Solar, tough design, Resin case/strap.

    However, reading some reviews that suggest it is not as "tough" as it looks, with screen fogging etc.

    Are there any other square solar resin watches I should consider? The all metal square looks great but I really want resin for a bit more durability.

    I'd suggest the gw5610 of you want more durability gw5000 with screwback casing but ofc more pricing.

    Forget to mention the gw 5000 has stainless case under the resin but for a starter watch I'd highly recommend the gw5610

    Also look at the GW-5510 and similar models. Unique look, slightly larger than the standard squares and just as shock resistant as the King models.

    what kevin said, the 5500 line is the queen of Gshock

    anyway, fogging happens to all Gshock, not just the Kings, I have no problems with my Kings whatsoever

    Believe me, it's as tough as it looks. The Kings are made to be extra durable than an ordinary G-Shock. The fogging is a random incident. You won't regret getting a King G.
