    Question Too skinny for GD-100

    What's happening all?

    I'm thinking about making a new purchase, a GD100-1A.

    The problem is I have skinny wrists and I'm worried it'll look.......less than awesome!!

    What do ya think, is the GD-100 too big for me, or are they within the skinny wrist spectrum? I do like big watches but I also know there's a limit.
    I wouldn't get away with a GX-56 for example.

    Regardless of what you say I'll probably end buying it anyway but ya know......feedback and stuff.

    I've included a pic of old faithful for reference too.

    Cheers

    I too have wrists that are not on the big or chunky side, but i own and wear four GA-100's, a GA-110, a GA-120, a GLX-150, a G-8900A, a GDF-100, and four G-Rescue G-7900's, all considered to be chunky and large G-Shocks.

    Yes its going to have a band not wrapped around your wrist perfectly and will be big band gaps when you wear it, but so what? Its how you wear the watch, not how its going to fit you.

    First of all, it should be comfortable, amd if you are ok with the wide gaps, then go for it. The size should not stop you from getting it if you really want it.

    I have girl friends who wear G-Shocks rather than Baby-G watches because they like the look of the bigger G-Shocks better, and they're pretty comfortable wearing it.

    Try a couple X-Large G-Shocks at your local mall to get a feel for it. The G-Rescue series tend to be more comfortable though with the "wings" under the bands.

    If it feels good on your wrist and you like the look, what's stopping you?
    Wearing a different G-SHOCK ​everyday.

    Yeah very true, it really does come down to how it feels. I wear my watch fairly low and loose too, so there's gaps no matter what. Plus it's just a sexy looking watch on or off the wrist, how can I resist!!

    My wrist is just under 7", like 6.88 or so. This is a GD-100 on mine. Yes, there is a bit of a gap, but it's very manageable for me. Compare to a 200 series Frog as well.
