    Question Move over G-Shock! There is a new "tough watch"!

    I saw this advertisement for these Citizen Watches, and I was wondering is the advertisement really that accurate in your opinion?

    If it is, I should reconsider using my Citizen Eco-Drive BM8180-03E to mow the lawn, and shovel the snow too.

    The MTG is retired and the 5600 too. Right now, the only working G-Shocks that I use and enjoy are the Riseman GW9200-1 and the GW6900-1

    If I can own a Rolex Submariner I would. I know they are tough too, their homages are tough. Trust me.

    They must have been photoshopped out.

    It gets better, the advertisement also came with this.

    "Men's Citizen Eco-Drive Military Watches".

    "Able to Withstand the Hardest Uses".

    Those Citizen are great watches. They will last but are not built up to G standards. Mowing the yard of course jack hammering your side walk no The thing that keeps me away from most citizens it there size normally smaller than I like.

    I guess you aren't a 5600 person?

    The 5600 is one of the most popular G-Shocks too.

    The Citizen Watch I own is about the size of the 5600.

    Got myself a similar watch some time ago and really love it, but it is by no means any match for a G-Shock. Nevertheless, it´s fun.





    Nice lume, too.


    Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.

    I have one little bittey DW5600WC FIFA that sits in my drawer and just does not get worn. I have too many that I like more. I dont know if its also because its square, I prefer round watches. I just cant bring myself to sell it.

    Here is the only one I have.

    It doesn't look like an official ad sanctioned by Citizen, more likely fan-made.

    As for matching a G-Shock, anyone can dream of course.
    DW-9051/2
    G-9200 Riseman
    G-9100 Gulfman
    G-9000MC-8D Mudman
    GW5600J
    GA-100A-9A

    Sucks to be without a G.

    That picture is OLD! The weapon they are carrying is an M-16A1, we were issued the A2 version back in 1988 and of course the uniforms they are wearing have also been replaced quite a few years ago now.
