    Personal opinion thread: Ugliest G-Shock.

    Any Casio G brand counts be it G-Shock, Baby-G or other. Go nuts!

    I personally really hate the Jason G's. I don't recall the number, I think G-001? Who cares, ugly, yuck.

    I don't think there are any ugly g-shocks for me... maybe ugly Casios, but not g-shock models.

    The first barometer (I think it was first dual-sensor watch) is a bit over the top, but rest are quite nice.

    I wouldn't call any Gshock ugly, but quite a few annoy me with its design:

    - Rangeman: the four protective screws jamming up in a already VERY BUSY Gshock with sensors all around, like the original riseman doesn't already look NERDY enough

    - GA-100: large with 2 square windows, an a small square on top ....

    - GD-110: what seems to be an arrow with a rounded head in the middle of the watch, seriously?

    - the one with a sad face, I don't even remember the model

    - GR-8900: big bold eye with two small circles next to it asking for so much attention when all you want is to see the time

    LOLz

    The wademan is hideous IMHO.

    The only Jason that I found likable is the all black version (G-001-1A). But what I thought was such an atrocity, was that CASIO eliminated the thermometer function in this watch with the updated release from 2011. Originally that was the "big deal" about the watch, and the whole reason why it had the hockey mask look--the holes were real and allowed air to pass in for temperature readings (on the DW-001). Anyway... discounting the black version, I find any of the colors make it look like a Fisher Price baby toy, especially the G-001-2.

    The next ugliest G-Shock for me is the GA-110, especially when they conjured up this revolting color scheme: GA-110F-2JR. There were about 4 other variants made with some crazy mixed up color patterns of the same theme. They're so stomach turning, I couldn't even post a photo. The Dee & Ricky (GA-100DR) is still a little extreme for me, but at least it feels more like "fun" rather than in-your-face ugly.

    But there are certainly others in hot pursuit of these visual atrocities. I agree with Fer about the Wademan. Just ridiculous looking and probably holding the record for distance from outer bezel edge to LCD screen. The whole G-Cool line was pretty much a cosmetic faux pas in my opinion, except for the Pininfarina which has an artistic flair with form definitely over function.

    Re: Personal opinion thread: Ugliest G-Shock.

    DW-9100, G-001/DW-001, G3011 are the ugliest that come to my mind. I would rather wear no watch at all than any of those and since I'm a 24/7 wearer, this means a lot.
