    Help me find a new Beater?

    I've used my Hamilton Navy GMT as a beater for quite awhile. However, after picking up my PAM321, and with my Breitling Seawolf and Hammy X-WIND, I realised that 42mm is a little on the small side for me, and nowadays i am not giving the Hamilton Navy GMT any wear simply because I am starting to find it abit too small.

    I am looking for a new beater.

    Was considering a simple G-SHOCK (the analog + digital ones), something like this:
    but will consider others as well!

    I've owned a Luminox as a beater before as well as a seiko 007.

    Just looking to change things up abit thats all :)

    What are your beaters and what would you recommend? A nice quartz would be good too

    Seiko Monster (or Orange Monster if you like the look). Go for the newer model with the better (windable-hackable) movement. Unfortunately I like the older model's looks better, but...

    I wouldn't wear a g myself but if you would then they're probably the best beater available I'm sure.

    If you're not one of those that's offended by the word "Invicta," I've had this Grand Diver for almost two years now as my beater and it has been beaten and dropped numerous times... Still runs fine too.

    This would be my play if I were you. Eventually, I will get around to grabbing one for this purpose as well. It's hard to beat the Monster for a beater (unless of course you're going over to the darkside with quartz). Whether it's the new generation or the old, the Monster is an iconic affordable that everybody should own once.
