    Which to buy - Casio G-shock GA1000-1A or Luminox Black Ops 8815?

    I'm stuck with these 2 choices and I am wondering which to choose. I am wondering if Luminox watches are as durable too?

    Working at construction sites and hope these watches can take some beating too.

    Wanted to get an analog watch that is suitable for daily use. I have 2 digital G-shocks already and am considering an analog watch.


    Luminox - Land | Luminox

    Casio - GA1000-1A - Aviation - Mens Watches | Casio - G-Shock

    What do you think? =)

    I like the Gshock better. I watched the video on the website. Nice lume.

    I always wanted a tritium watch, but that Luminox design seems kind of generic.

    The only neg on the Gshock is you already own 2 of them. Albeit digitals.

    It would be G-Shock for me. I don't like all black watches unless they're super sporty, feature laden like the G-Shocks.

    Hands down, the Casio.

    When I looked at your link to the Luminox, I had to lean way foward to see the hr numerals, there very dark.
    I'm a little suprised Luminox made a dial like that.

    Get the G-Shock.....for your purposes, it's not even a close call.

    My old beater is a GW-3000B, still runs great and it's been to hell and back.

    GW-4000D-1AJF on bracelet is much better looking over the two.
