    Picture Little and Large: F-91W with GXW-56

    I like a slim, light watch for running, so wore my F-91W for today's run. I'm now back to the GXW-56. The difference in size is vast!:

    A startling comparison.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Could not agree more. The hole G-Shock idea was little more than improving on this old venetable design. GX-56 is just a latest iteration of that same old, old, idea...

    What's most startling is not so much the size but the fact that digit size didn't change whatsoever. Digits became thicker but not bigger.

    No matter F-91W is like a original Rolex seadveller of digital watches. Many dive watches came after original rolex but they were just playing with exact same idea set long time ago.

    Same for F-91W... it's a grand dady of digital watches and funny enough after all those years we still can't beat the originall... we can add features like G-Shock protection, solar, atomic even put the fancy gell inside and mud resistance putting it all in a package with a size that's close to ridiculusly big... but soul remains the same and unsurpassed in sheer functionality and briliance of simplicity.

    What a shame that F-91W doesn't get more recognition in history of horology. As far as I'm concerned it should be right up there with best watches human kind ever made.

    Cheers

    I'm not one who believes that bigger is better, especially with watches. I like big, but some are just too big, especially when there's no real improvement in readability. That goes for both analog and digital, but especially with digital.

    There's just something timeless about the old ones. I love some of the new features and am often irritated with the old ones that don't have them, but when the size of digits don't appreciably change with case size or even display size, I don't get the point. Fashion conscious I guess I'm not.

    The F-91W is a great little watch and mine is the most accurate non-atomic watch that I own.

    And I bought it for just £5.86, delivered, compared to the GXW at £180!

    Come on, can hardly spot it.
    Only atomic clocks tell you what time it is - all others try to do so.

    Wow, the GXW56 makes the F91W look like a ladies watch.

    Any chance of a comparison shot with the G9000?
