    Value for money - best model?

    I think the G-shocks are the best value for money of all watches. In terms of features, construction and design choices. I am very impressed with my GW-810. Tons of features and perfect size for my narrow wrist (~6.5" if I'm properly hydrated! )

    In the G-shock line, which model (currently sold models only, no discontinued models) do you think is the best value for money? (watches on sale at box stores qualify)

    P.S. This article is off topic but very interesting. It's about how high end watch manufacturers and auction houses conspired to increase the subjective values of their watches. This article made me appreciate my Gshock even more!!

    The basic models (5600, 9052, etc).
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I propose the G2300 in addition to those basic models. It's in the same price range, and although it lacks time in stopwatch and CDT modes, it's solar powered. It's a lot of G-Shock for around £20.

    I think you're right, but you can still pick them up new. I've just ordered a second one from 4-watches.

    I think the Gw-330 I just received for $50 bucks for a solar/atomic was a great deal IMO.

    That's a nice model and decent price.

    As Christmas is just around the corner watch for those sales at your local box stores. Here in Canada the best place to buy is at the Bay stores and then at Sears (few models though). In the States I think it is JC Penny.

    What's a 'box store'? My best guess is that it's a warehouse 'no frills' kind of place.

    Maybe he means brick and mortar stores? Not sure though but I'd like to go to Wal-Mart sometime this week and scope out their selection...
