My design for a G-Shock would have these features (but not limited to them):
1. All steel case. Some extra acrylic to protect the dial (as a raised bezel) would be okay also. Acrylic buttons would be okay. (I'm still not won over to the soft/rubber cases.)
2. Rubber/resin strap.
3. The strap holder could accommodate ANY other watch band (18 or 20mm), rather than being integrated.
I would basically like a general look of diver watches, but with an all digital dial. I don't necessarily want them to look *exactly* like a traditional watch case. I prefer the case design to be more like the typical G-Shocks, just with the modified case material and strap holder.
