    It is okay as long as it's legal where you are. Here in Denver it is illegal to wear a G-Shock on the 2nd day of each month. Other than that, it's okay!

    Allow me to offer a slightly different perspective (uh oh!).

    There are certain types of jobs where image matters more than others, like "professional" jobs such as banking. In these types of jobs, what you wear can affect how well you advance in your career. If you wear sneakers with your business suit, you could be passed over for your next promotion. The thing is, your superiors want to know that you can tell how to act appropriately in different situations, and unfortunately how you dress (including your watch) is an indicator of that. If you have more of a "I do what I want attitude," you may struggle to get ahead.

    If you're not in one of those types of jobs it doesn't matter as much, although perception is everything. Heck, even the G-Shock website is designed to appeal to the younger hip-hop culture. How many of you would be as likely to buy the watch if all of their marketing materials had old, fat, balding white guys sitting around a pool smoking cigars and touting their G-Shock watches? Like it or not, we're all slaves to perception—that's how marketing works (I have 15 years of experience in advertising and design, and I've sold my share of crap to people that didn't need it).

    Do what makes you happy, just remember that if you break the rules, it can affect you in all sorts of ways. Nothing is as impressive as success, and no matter how fancy your watch is, you'll impress people far more by being a stand-up guy (or girl) that people can rely on, both in your career and outside of it.

    It is not OK to wear no Gs in your daily rotation. I always make sure I have at least one G in my daily rotation of watches ...

    You could say that it makes more sense for an adult to wear a G-Shock every day than any other watch. Affordable, reliable, rugged, classless.

    Perhaps the more interesting question is whether it's OK for adults to wear watches that advertise their upward mobility every day.


    (please note pronounced devil's advocate nature of response...)
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...
