    How do you treat your G-Shock?

    OK, all of you G-collectors. How do you treat your G? After all, a G is supposed to survive even the most brutal treatment. But it seems that some of you treat your G as if it's a very fragile instrument (ha, ha :-D)... Or what?

    Here is my most beat-up G (click to see the damage!):

    actually, i do take good care of my recently-bought G-Shocks, by cleaning the glass and straps, wiping off the sweat and whitish remains, after an outdoor trip back home

    Me too. But I'm not so gentle with my 7-year old DW-6600. As you can see in the pictures. But I actually washed it yesterday...:-D

    Re: How do you treat your G-Shock?

    These things are meant to be worn, so I wear them. I do try to wear more durrable or less unique models if I think I'm going to be doing something active.
    DW-003S, DW-5600C, G-306X, G-741D, GE-2000, GT-001, GW-200MS, GW-5600J, GW-9010, GW-9100, GW-9200, MTG-920DA, MTG-520M

    Wanted: MRG-1200T

    The ones for work I expect to take a beating from time to time. A few of them I tend to wear only weekends but they do get bumped some. But all of them do get worn .

    Wink Re: How do you treat your G-Shock?

    Hi Rasmus,

    DIfficult to fill in for me, but I'm gentle to most of my G's I guess. I have though real beaters (complete with scratches) that I use for rough work or mountain biking. Actually it's pretty hard to get new scratches on those though. I guess the materials used are pretty good and the protecting rim around the crystal is working good too.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    I'm gentle with my watches too but not in a extreme way

    Hi Sjors

    I think I'm the same way. My first G-Shock (DW-6600) is very scratched, but I'll probably be a little gentler to my new ones.

    I seem to remember a really beaten-up DW-6600 on your website?

    Greetings from Rasmus

    Re: How do you treat your G-Shock?

    I have a 6600 and the old version of the 5600 and the new version.

    I wear the new 5600 as a beater and pretty much baby the old one.

    The 6600 I like because I used to wear it when I was a firefighter.

    Good to hear that I'm not the only one who loves the DW-6600 . And impressive that it could survive the intense heat from your line of work...
