    Angry Metal or plastic pushers.

    I was re-setting time zones on a GW-300 this morning when the plastic Mode pusher busted off! My other 300 fell victim to the CTL-1616 disease so thats the last of this model for me. I just picked up a GW-5600 and really like the fact that it has metal pushers. I think it's the only Atomic/Solar model that does?? It is now a feature I will look for in future purchases. How do you guys feel about this little feature of G?

    Since I have both on my various models it doesn't make that big of a deal for me. Sorry to hear aboutthe button on your 300 . That would have me seriously bummed out.

    Wink Re: Metal or plastic pushers.

    I rather have metal pushers, excpept for the light buton as a fifth is present. I have had several G's that came in with broken buttons. Metal buttons simply don't brake (well, if you drive a tank over it maybe, but not under normal abuse).

    Cheers,

    Great fix Angelo! Maybe I won't toss the GW-300 after all. Does Casio sell the metal pushers?

    Re: Metal or plastic pushers.

    The buttons on my Polar cardiac watch have made me shy of plastic buttons. One of the buttons cracked into several parts and finally fell apart, another one simply disappeared. Of course, this was not a G Shock...so I don't hesitate to get Gs with plastic buttons. I simply prefer metal.

    Re: Metal or plastic pushers.

    I don't mind either, except for my Raysman, Gulfman, Mudman and Wademan, GW-1500, GW-300, GW-900, etc., all my other's including Frogman have metal.

    My yellow Raysman would be the heaviest and hardest abused used and no sign of breakage so It's cool for me

    Re: Metal or plastic pushers.

    it doesn't really bother me and it depends on the design

    big plastic button (easy to push) vs small metal ones (fail proof)
