After about a year or so of looking, I finally gave in and bought a G-Shock the other day.
It's a GLX-5600-1 black G-Lide. It has the classic look and feel of the Casio digitals that I enjoyed so much in the 1980s. After a look through the manual I soon re-learned the joy of setting a Casio.
This one has the Moon and Tide display, but I doubt the tide will have much effect in Almonte, so I set the Tide indicator to the Bahamas (We plan a cruise there later this fall.)
And no, I don't plan on jumping off the roof of my house to test the shock resistance. Nice watch all in all. It's fun to have a digital watch again.
