    How much do you baby your G Shock?

    I'm wondering how much do you baby your G Shock?
    I put mine only on soft surfaces, don't expose it to direct sunlight, and I don't want to even mention the shower...

    I avoid actions which can cause unnecessary harm (placing it an asphalt, exposure to solvents, etc..) but I don't otherwise baby it. I've worn it with chainsaw work, other motorized tool work (laying down pvc irrigation lines), other landscaping work. Don't wear it when working on Porsche.

    For years, this GW-3000 has been taking it for the team at work. It has seen a lot of ocean.

    I wouldn't say I baby mine, but my lifestyle and type of work mean nothing can really happen to them anyway

    I don't.

    Off the top of my head, in the past month, my three G-Shocks have been submerged in lamb grease at least a dozen times, dipped in piping hot water, exposed to a gutter job at my parents stone house, and partially dowsed in 2 cycle fuel mix on multiple occasions.

    IMO, G-Shocks are created to be destroyed, or, at very least, to resist destruction.

    My DW5600 goes to the gym with me because I go in the sauna after every workout. The new to me GW5000 goes everywhere else. My job isn't really too rough on the watches. On the lookout for a GWM5610 for my combi bracelet and then my square collection is complete for now.

    I wouldn't say "baby," but I do "care" for my G-Shocks. Some are shelf queens for collectible reasons. Some are occasional wear and are kept out of harm's way. But the rest are expected to take drops and scuffs with vigor.

    I have an old AWG591 for rough and tumble, it's my oldest G and certainly doesn't get babied, I have a G5600E-1D that is my other watch that lives a slightly less pampered existence, but all my other Gs get babied - never exposed to water, chemicals or hard work, placed lovingly in a display case after wearing!

    Is this a joke?
