    I am sorry to tell you that I don't like wearing THIS watch (mind you, its WEARING, not looking at). The watch looks great and I like to see the hands reel and tick, but I, personally would not like to wear an analog watch if a digital is available. Features in analog watches cost you a lot. And a digital 7-segement display (black on white) is just great!

    Yes! People don't know to appreciate others. Drop a Rolex and a DW-6900 from a height of 10 meters. (If at all this happens, who wins?)

    Don't forget, many of our service men and women wear G-Shock's also, so think about that when someone calls them a childish watch.

    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.
    just wanted to bring this great statement up again, since the thread is so old.
    I agree with that. but I can imagine that a slim and classic looking GW-M-5600 would be ok for almost every job.

    best,
    Mikey

    Fashion is largely the result of clever marketing anyway

    personally I go through different phases of watch craze, at the moment I am really into g-shocks again
    I even managed to get my family to wear g-shocks now - we are g-shock family :)

    The only answer to this question is...

    Children are told what to do... Adults do what they want to do!

    I'm a 40 year old managing director of my own company, with various watches and it's only now I've been wearing my gshocks that people have noticed that I wear a different watch everyday, as for missing out on promotions and the like for wearing the wrong thing it's never held me back and never would I judge anyone in an interview over what they are wearing or the watch they have on unless its a blatant fake and they tried to say it wasn't.

    Live is to be lived so do what feels right and enjoy it :)
