IMHO I figure everyone should have at least one G-Shock. I have two now, and my older son and his buddy (who are both 13 and budding WIS) were eyeing up my new Riseman. My son has a Timex "kids" Ironman which is definitely too small for his wrist now, he wears his Casio MDV-102 most of the time but misses the alarms and other features that his Timex has. So I thought I would get him a G for our upcoming Scout Camporee as I got the Riseman for the same reason. I found a DW-9052 for $35 bucks and snagged it for him. I will wait until the night before the trip to spring it on him I can't wait to see his reaction
Now if I could only get my younger son interested, he couldn't care less about wearing a watch...
