    Re: Why is your beater watch your beater watch

    Any watch I wear will get beaten at some point. I have a citizen eco-drive that after 3 years looks like it was dragged behind a bus. Yesterday I changed the oil in my in-laws car wearing my TC frog. If it's hot out and I'm working outdoors I'll wear my 6600 with a zulu.
    Basically I'm big , active , and a tad clumsy at times, so anything I'm wearing,whether clothes, shoes, or watches can be destroyed at any time,without warning

    I have an old DW-5600C that's my main beater. It's got replacement resin parts and it's not really in the best shape, so I don't worry about it getting banged up more. I like the weight of the screwback, and it's thin profile keeps it from getting in the way.

    I don't really have one. Most of my watches are G-Shocks, so can take a 'beating', but I don't like damaging stuff. Even the old, cheap, secondhand ones. I probably wear my DW-6900 more often than the others when doing anything manual/dirty, but it still looks almost new.

    If I was doing anything which involes you bashing your wrist repeatedly, there's a good chance you're doing it wrong!!

    I have two G-shocks that get worn on the tough days. One is a G-9000 Mudman. The other is a G-2300B-1V. They're both tough and relatively cheap. The main reason I wear them on long hard days is because they are excessively comfortable under a variety of condiions.

    Re: Why is your beater watch your beater watch

    Like many others, I don't have a singular beater watch. Rather I have a couple criteria for a watch that I wear when likely to beat it up. Generally I will wear something with a metal bracelet; I don't like the feeling of wet leather or rubber on my skin. And something that won't get scratches on the dial.

    My beater was my DW6600, but I've ordered a new bezel for it so now I don't know. Probably won't want to risk scuffing it up now.

    Re: Why is your beater watch your beater watch

    My daily beater is a triple crown Frogman, green band purely because I find Frogman watches to be the most comfortable of all G Shocks I bought it cheap and I like to abuse it as a bit of a test.
