    If you are looking to stick with something analog. Get a GW-3000. I have the GW-3000BB-1A and LOVE it. I never wore any of my other G-Shocks and once I realized that I could sell most of them for double what I paid. They were promptly listed on eBay and sold. You can pick one up on eBay for just over $200. WELL worth it.

    The GW-3000 is a great watch. Solar, Atomic, Tough Movement.

    wrist size will be a big factor...

    Smaller wrists, a DW5600 or even a DW9052

    Medium sized: DW6900

    Medium to large: GR8900

    IMO it's more about the features than the specific model. What separates Casio from much of the pack is atomic time setting, solar battery and world time. I have all three in both my Casio digitals and they are great features. Find the models with all three then pick the one that appeals to you the most.

    You can get an entry level g shock for under $100. Don't get too hung up on a low price. GW300, GW500 and so on will get you years of trouble free operation with atomic time keeping and solar power. I've had GW300 for about 6 years. There is more models I don't even know that will fit your criteria.

    Yeah, most young minds will go for a GA110. Even my not so young mind also went for 2 of these.
    PRO: Its a cool watch. CONS: Hard to read in dark places , even when you push the light button.
    I'd say go for it. you have your iphone to tell the time.

    I agree with kahyecc on this. I also have two 110's. A lot of fun. You will enjoy it.
    Now, i haven't seen the black with blue trim before. . .
    Yes, I am OCD. What gave it away?
