    my GL-7500 workhorse...

    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....

    very nice model, I am going to get the blk version. You and keanu reeves have two things in common! The watch and the job : ) FYI He plays a cop in the new movie Street kings. He wears a black 7500!!

    Cool thread and cool watch. Thanks for sharing.

    I see nothing goofy about a cop.

    Fantastic. I have a G-7500 and although I've not worn it much, it looks and feels extremely tough. Any plans for more G-Shocks?

    Hello RGNY! Great watch! Its big, tough, it has fantastic readability and i think it fits with your job very well!

    P.S. I hope you didn't kill your wife after she took that photo...you don't look very happy..

    I was thinking of getting a vibrating alarm G-Shock, but until I find one with a solar power and atomic at a affordable price though.

    I don't think you will. It's a rare feature even on battery models.

    thanks guys.

    Funkywatch: that's just my 'game face'. off duty i'm a crunchy-nature-hippy type. in my spare time i teach full contact armored combat for a historical group:



    for mindless violence, do a YouTube search for "Count Robin Wallace".



    Lexxorcist: i do have a model older than this (can't remember what right now. one with the huge velcro/plastic buckle band). both still work great and i'm trying to limit my watches to stuff i actually use (yes, i say that now....).
