    Mid-Sized Analog G?

    Browsed the forums for awhile now, but decided its time to post.

    I've recently begun looking for a watch I can take camping. (Or at least that's the excuse I'm using to buy another watch)

    Originally I started looking for Timex Explorers and other cheap analog watches that I wouldn't need to worry about breaking, but were designed to be 'outdoorsy'.

    I prefer analog over digital and a watch that's under 48mm so G-Shocks weren't my first go to. However after some more research G-Shocks seemed like the best for durability. I'm not necessarily opposed to 50mm+ but that seems large for my wrists (6.5/7 in)

    So basically, this is what I'm looking for:

    Price: Sub $200

    Size: 40mm-50mm preferred (the GA100Cs caught my eye, but seem fairly large; 55mm I believe)

    Water Resistance: Anything over 100m (I plan on fishing and being around lakes, so I don't want to have to worry about dunking my watch a few times)

    Style: Analog or Analog/Digital

    Band: NATO or Rubber

    Mostly looking for a watch that can stand to be tossed around and not be afraid of some dirt and water. I know you guys know way more than I do, so hopefully someone out there has some insight.

    Thanks!!

    Not a gshock but a Casio edifice EFA13x series...not large around 46mm, 100m WR suitable for swimming and activities in water, analogue/digital...around $80 to $90 USD.

    G-shock AWGM100 is 44mm, solar and atomic ana-digi for $85. Such a deal!

    Google "G-shock analog". It's amazing what is available.

    Take a look at the Giez line. Especially if you're willing to consider pre-owned, they hit your criteria. A nicer quality G as well.

    Try the analog digital G-100. It wears small and costs under $80 at local Walmart stores. It has a big analog face and a small digital screen so you can have Analog goodness with an alarm. I have one and it wears small and seems to sit flat on the wrist. According to Casio it has the following measurements
    Size of case/total weight
    49.6 x 47.8 x 15.7mm / 59g

    G100-1BV - G-Shock, Mens, Tough, Water Resistant, Analog, Digital, Watches | CASIO America, Inc.

    Not bad, saw a few of those. Thank you. I have googled that, but wanted some advice from this community as you all wear them and have personal experience. Not just a website with tech specs.

    Hi and welcome to the forum!
    It wears much smaller than the 44mm suggest - more like 40mm (the 44mm is across the widest part of the watch - the side "protectors") - it looks bigger in the pic however as it was taken from about 10cm distance - I'd have to take one from farther away:


    It's definitely one of the smallest ana-digi models.

    edit: this model has the same size - my wrists are about 18cm (7"):


    cheers, Sedi

    Thanks Sedi! That's a great reference point. Doesn't look too overbearing, I like that.

    I'm really starting to fall for this style but they're like 55mm (which to me is a bit ridiculous, then again, I'm 5'7" so I'm not an overly large person). Name:  Screen Shot 2014-03-02 at 7.56.39 PM.png

    Does anyone know how these wear comparatively?

    I have that with a black face. My wrist is about 7.5" and I'm 6'.



    I love the way the XL family fits my wrist.
