    Looking for first G-Shock beater

    I've recently started attempting to narrow down a G-Shock for use as an everyday beater. All the bells and whistles don't matter much to me, but price does. I'm looking to spend under $60. This watch will be with me hunting, fishing, sports, and work. So far, I'm fairly fond of the DW9052-1V, but I'm definitely open to suggestions. Any G-Shock veterans out there have any other watches or ideas? Thanks!

    I used a dw-5600e for like 3-4 years almost daily. I recommend taking a look at it. It is 40ish on amazon.

    If you hunt and fish, how about G7500 or AS410B (non-G-Shock) with vibration alarm?

    As the others, I suggest the standard models of DW5600E, or DW6900 as well.

    Like others have said 5600 or 6900 for sure. I have a DW6900 on a 3-ring zulu that I use for yard/house/dirty work, and a GW6900 that I use for my job (need accurate time). I just picked up a dw5600 for another beater, that should be here tomorrow. I have multiple watches to choose from while I'm not at work so why not have some variety in your beaters.

    For that price and functionality I'd go for the 5600. Smaller and much more compact than a 6900 so less chance of it snagging anything and also easier to fit under shirts / jackets if you're outdoors a lot.

    I picked up a dw5600 today and really like it. Like you guys said, it's very easy to wear with long sleeves, and eventually thermal underwear and jackets. My other question is what does everyone think of the dw9052-1v? Like I said, I'm a bit struck on it haha.
