    How An Ideal G-Shock Would Be?

    Hello, can you write about what would you believe is a perfect G-Shock?

    I think that all g-shocks must have titanium metal parts..titanium screws and casebacks have that "quality feeling and look"...I experienced this with the g-9100...and other mostly mechanical watches...

    Its a shame that mudman and basic 5600 models haven't got it..and i don't think its about price...mudman costs the same with gulfman, so its a little stupid marketing trick to say gulfman is rust-proof and for the same price mudman isn't..they could have made the perfect Master Of G IMO but they play tricks until they have new ideas - models and re-release their old models with all the features on them...there are so little differences except the design that they make me think there could be a "perfect" g-9000/g-9100 hybrid..

    Also, 5xxx models could have the protecting bar preinstalled or included in the box for a little higher price..Finding and buying separated protecting bars for every 5xxx is a little waste of time for me..a spare resin band could be a good inclusion in the box too. Ok, some people don't want a protecting bar, but hey, its a watch for hard use and needs this option. The people who don't want it they could remove or not installing it at all. More metal generally could be good if it is combined with resin like the Gundams...

    What do you think? What would you add or change on a G-Shock?

    Really simple for me: multiband 5, tough solar, 24h CDT, day & date display, screwback, comfortable bands. If it has a silence mode, it'd be extra gravy.

    The new Riseman has a many of these features, but alas, it has extra features that I don't need or care fore, e.g. temp, pressure.
    Buying more watches does not buy you more time.

    Looking for: Seiko SCVS013; Citizen PMX56-2811; Citizen Campanola CTS57-0701.

    Is the silence mode something like a screen saver? It would be cool if all Gs had something like this..I think some g-shocks have it but maybe i'm wrong..my Nike oregon has a "screen saver" and its a very very good energy saving feature...

    My perfect G would be any that had normal lugs and springbars so that nylon straps (zulu/nato) can easily be passed through. I know they sell those adaptors, but that just doesn't look right.

    My perfect G would have a beefy g-shock case like a Frog or dw6900.

    It would have a screwback.

    It would have an awesome display like the paw1300 (maybe even with bigger digits, like a Sunto)

    And as citeniK said: multiband 5, tough solar, 24h CDT, day & date display. Even better, the module would have a ton of features but allow you to turn off some or change the order that you cycle through them. If you use world time or tidegraph, go ahead and activate them - otherwise, leave them off. (OK maybe that's getting crazy )

    Oh and one of the versions would come already stealthed.
