    I think it's OK to wear G shocks everyday - especially military/firefighter/outdoor job types - In fact, I associate G shocks with adults, not kids or teenagers -

    Sure, the red and yellow ones look young, and they are the current fashion it seems for college age kids and young celebs, but the black ones aren't particularly young looking to me. I could see wearing a yellow or red G-shock diving or some outdoor situation -

    My G and "shoes"







    I'm 54 and just back from a damn hard walk in the Cornish countryside. That G on that zulu strap and those boots were the appropriate things to wear today. If I was going to a business meeting I would've looked completely different. I don't wear a flight suit anymore. It would just look silly. Watches are like your clothes. You wear what's appropriate for whatever you're doing. To do otherwise is stupid.

    Cheers,

    Exactly!

    Next time someone tells you that G-Shocks are not for adults, remind them that there are plenty of MEN and WOMEN fighting, killing, and dying over in Iraq and Afghanistan who happen to wear G-Shocks.
    It's not all kid's stuff!!!

    I'm amazed by how comfortable the F91W is. As for seniors, the display is readable, the alarm/beeps are loud, and it's easy to use.

    I'm 23 and G-Shocks are the only watches I own and wear. But people say I do look 17-18ish though.

    I'm 32 and I have been wearing a Gs to the office since I got into it 3years back. No one seemed to be bothered by it, in fact they seem pretty amazed by it every time I show them how durable it is by throwing it around the office

    Take your G-Shock and their fancy watches and toss them from the top floor. Let's see who's the first to become childish when their expensive timepiece is splattered all over the pavement.

    I wear a G-Shock to work every day with no problem, in conditions that would have marred a lesser watch.

    Ive wore a G since 1983 when i was 13, today as then i still love out door pursuits and have always found G-shocks spot on for this, although i wear my protrek more these days for long walks and camping etc' my heart is still with the old 5000's childish no way to me although ive had and still have a few watches G-shocks are as real as a watch gets' i hear this proper watch thing mentioned now and then on watch forums for me a G-shock is as about as proper a watch can be,
