    Which one do you choose, when...

    ... you want the comfort, modern style, and features of a G-Shock, but don't need the ruggedness and don't want the thickness or bulkiness?

    I'm thinking of a W94. Had one before, it was great. Has stopwatch, timer, alarm, and can be had in a nice brown/green color scheme that goes well with office khakis.

    I would think one of the squares actually. How much less "bulkiness" are you looking for?

    I personally find the GW-A1000 pretty huge - it's my largest watch. Having said that, a watch that size has no right to be so comfortable! I honestly forget I'm wearing it, and it's the metal bracelet version. A cool watch, but large and bold (speaking from a 7 inch wrist perspective).

    How about an AWG-100 / 101 or a Multiband 6 AWGM100...?

    Those are still big watches. I was thinking of non-G-Shocks.

    I know you are the G-Shock guys, but I asked you anyway, because you KNOW how comfortble G-Shocks are, and I thought maybe you had some non-G's to recommend too. ;)


    I'm thinking of the Casio W94, now. I had one before, and it was great. Smaller, thinner, good features, etc. Style is not bad. (not great either, but not tragic, you know?)

    I have a Casio A158W, which is nice and thin, but 1980s style, and has no timer. That one has a LOUD alarm too!

    Hi Smaug, got what you mean now - how about a Casio EFD-1000: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f296/ca...ne-696965.html
    Or a Casio STW-1000: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f105/re...-a-610745.html
    There's also the GW-56 (OK a G-Shock and out of production, but the slimest ever made - I have one and like it a lot): G-Shock GW-056 Review - YouTube
    Higher up the scale of course is the Seiko SGPG001: http://www.seiyajapan.com/product/S-...r-SBPG001.html
    There are also tonnes of Timex watches that would probably suit your needs.

    I own the first 3 of the watches above and they're nice casual pieces with decent functionality. I'll try and think of some more options for you...
    In the meantime, good luck!

    Pelican, thanks a ton for taking the time to write that well thought-out reply. I was never even AWARE of any of those models, until I read this post. Only the Edifice is reasonably easy to get, but they are all available on fleabay. I've added them all to my watch list.

    How many watches do I need?
    Truthfully, I only "need" this one.

    +1 with the W800H Redcrow models here. I too have had this watch which is an excellent non G choice, thin and very comfortable. The only downside I found with it was it had no countdown timer, essential for my work.

    It eventually had to sacrifice itself and give up its strap, needed for my Garmin forerunner 205 who's overused strap had split. Wish I'd kept the Casio now but it went in the bin....ouch (I didn't appreciate watches in those days obviously)

    A square is hard to beat for comfort and price. Cheers, Bill P.
