    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.
    Well said.

    I'd add that once you are established in your field, it may be a different matter.

    G-314RL - it's perfectly fine, though mine is suffering some issues at the moment, and is not expensive either! :)

    Some G-Shocks may be a bit...flamboyant...for everyday wear in the adult world. But you can find a G that works in every environment, and I encourage you to do so.
    Keep List:

    Seiko SKXA35 Auto Diver
    Stauer Day/Date/Month Auto
    Glycine Incursore 100M Auto
    O&W Ocean Master Vintage handwinder
    G-Shock GW3000BD-1ajfa
    G-Shock MTG910DA-1
    Citizen EcoZilla diver
    Hamilton Khaki Officer 44mm Unitas w/custom hands and lume
    Volmax Aviator 45mm handwinder
    Laco 42mm B-Type Flieger




    Wish List:

    Glycine Eugene Meylan
    Hamilton Jazzmaster PR
    Meistersinger Singlehand
    A +40mm Seiko Alpinist, if Seiko ever decides to make one...

    My wrist size - 8"/20.3cm

    Where I work, a G is pretty much the required everyday watch. Even if not, I love my mechanicals, but a G is definitely more practical for daily use to me.

    You can see from my name. I HATE analog watches too, and I repeat: I HATE analog, I HATE analog, I HATE analog (wrist watches). The people who make fun have no sense of appreciating others. Do their analogs have many features at the same or even a lesser price???? I have not owned an analog watch since 1998 (school boy).

    Technology brings not progress, but an illusion of progress.
