hi from the new guy,
had this one about three years. my wife got it for me for Christmas because i said i wanted a watch with a vibrating alarm and she knew i liked G-Shocks.
cannot believe how durable this thing is.
it's been slammed against bricks, cement, blacktop, cars, doorknobs and plateglass. even blocked a stick aimed at my head. it's been in a fire and bitten (dogs x2, human once).
it's my wakeup alarm every day except Saturday.
shows little wear and functions flawlessly. about the only comment i can make is that it's darkened slightly from dirt and grime.
i have other watches. some fancy divers and a dressy chrono, not to mention a '20's Elgin pocketwatch. but when it's time for serious abuse, this is what i'm wearing:
sorry about the goofy pose, my wife snapped it the other day on my way to work....
