    Honorary gshock

    I have one of these orange AQ-S800 models too. It's thin, lightweight and inexpensive. The orange color looks cool, especially in bright light. If Casio had put some lume on the dial it would be better, but the digital display can be used to read the time at night if needed.

    Re: Honorary gshock

    My honorary G-Shock is without a doubt the SGW100. I think whoever Casio engineer designed that watch and coined the model code "SGW" had G-Shock in mind too. It's just as rugged as G's in many aspects as well.

    For me it's not so much for worrying about scuffs, but rather the "ability" of G's to trapped tremendous amount of dirt between the outer resin and case. It's much easier to keep a hard plastic case watch clean. Although the SGW100 does have a few crevices to trap dirt as well, it's not nearly as much as a G does. The SGW100 has mineral crystal like G's, so it suffers from mineral build up as well (mainly from soap and hardness of water) along the edge of the crystal. I say for a care free tool watch, ones with hard plastic case and acrylic crystal do have their place in the job. Like the Timex which is also in the picture below. Through its 4 years of service, it's all scratched up, but very little build up of dirt or mineral.

    I have one of these too. It has one of the sharpest digital displays among my watches, and the main time digits are huge. I like the look of the green and blue tinted areas.

    Exact reasons why I like mine so much. If one can't read those big and clear digits, may be shouldn't be using a watch at all. LOL

    For the opposite reason, I shy away from the AQS800/810 series because the tiny digital display.

    No, no, no. The one and only honorary G- Shock is the DW-290.
