    Seiko Tuna (SBBN) vs G-Shock MTG-B1000

    Which is the ultimate quartz tank under 1k? Which works in the most situations and styles (assuming you have a dedicated dress watch)? Which is more iconic? Which will still be relevant in 20 years?

    Seiko Tuna all day every day. Both watches are tough as nails, but in the end I like the fact that the Tuna has a quartz movement built specifically for that watch. I like the looks of the Tuna, and to me the legibility of most G-Shock models is poor.

    The Seiko Tuna. For its overall aesthetic has stood the test of time - clean and simple and will be relevant for the wearer in 20 years as he or she ages. Where as, the G-Shock MTG-B1000's dial is too cluttered and will probably be put in drawer and forgotten about after one or more battery changes.

    Tuna without question. The GShock seems like it does cool stuff, and is probably indestructible, but the only model that I hunk could even loosely be described as “iconic” is the DW5600.

    On the other hand the Tuna hasn’t changed much in 40 years, since it hasn’t needed to.

    Tuna for sure.

    I don't trust analog Casios.

    The Casio is just a little to industrial looking for me.

    You don’t make this easy do you? Get the Tuna then start saving for a MR-G.

    I love Casio GShock watches but the Tuna is more classic designwise. History has shown that MTG designs don't age well.
