    One G to rule them all

    Hi guys, ive been looking at Gs online and physically for over a year now, but still cannot decide on whicb one to get. I am not a hoarder or collector, nor am I rich, so i only want one that will last me hopefully my whole life.

    So far, i like the functions of mudman (solar, atomic, compass) but dont like its size. Gulfman's size and look is closer to what i like (it is round), but is a bit overbudget and has some functions i dont need. So im totally frustrated.

    So here is my question. If you could only have one G, or you could only recommend one G to someone who only wants one, which one would it be? Please keep the budget to $200 or under.

    GW-M5610, with the leftover $100 you can grab GD-350 or something like that. Less is more.

    G-Shock MTGM900DA-8

    Price: USD$95 at Amazon.com

    Because its band is stainless steel material and that will last longer than resin band imho. And they say the solar battery would last longer than the usual battery. And it has got all the standard features in a G-Shock watch. So, this is the watch I would get if I want a not so expensive, last me a long time G-Shock watch.

    DW-5600E:

    - relative cheap (depending where you live)
    - small and relative thin
    - no nonsese module
    - uncluttered display
    - shows current time in all modes

    Alternatively the GW-M5610 which is atomic/solar but with a less advancded module.


    cheers

    The GX56 King.. only watch that can rule them all.. that's one of the reasons it's called the King.

    I didn't know the GW-M5610 has a less advanced module? I always thought it's a good value G, and would totally fit aquadog's requirements, minus the sensors he wanted.

    My G9000 non-atomic Mudman wasn't nearly as big as the stock photos had me thinking it would be and is one of my favorites. I got it for $69.90 shipped and am wearing it now.

    The DW-5600E and GW-M5610 are among my favorites too. The 5600 is a no nonsense all around tough watch. Same for the 5610 with the added features of solar power and atomic time. They're thin enough to wear under a long sleeve shirt without any problem too. I got my 5610 for $109 shipped.

    I've got a GW3500B-1A aviator incoming for $175 shipped. I doubt you'd regret that decision if you were only going to have one watch to wear. It's solar and atomic, with Tough Movement, but doesn't have the compass, thermometer, or barometer.

    Same from me - DW-5600 or GW-M5610, just simpliest (the first one) of all.

    Also small enough, so no one would look like with an older brother's watch on the wrist ... ;)

    The Riseman GW-9200: it's light, small(ish), extremely comfortable, and with great functionality (solar, atomic, alti-baro-temp). It should be available for under 200USD.

    DW-5600E is pretty awesome for under $50, but if you want solar go with the 5610. However, the solar version annoys me by not showing the current time in all modes. There are situations where I like the stop watch going for a long time with the current time showing, can't do that with the 5610. I wish they would make a model that would...
