    G Shock type bands that look like this?

    If I get an AW, I think it would be replacing this G Shock (stock pic)...

    What would you suggest for a case/strap that would look similar? I've read reviews on Amazon of a few different models and the majority seem to have some serious design flaws. But the Amazon crowd generally isn't a watch crowd, so I'm curious what the WUS folks think.

    +1. Could be a cool look for the AW.

    Your post may have no replies as it is very cryptic and hard to understand:

    You are replacing a GW-7900? Why?
    "Case/strap that looks similar" to what? The 7900 or the AW?
    What "serious design flaws"? I have around 100 G-Shocks with no serious design flaws. Pls elaborate.
    What WUS folks think about what?

    I think the OP means design flaws in cases designed for the AW.

    Right now, the best option, which was from Lunatik, is gone -- because super-cheap copies have flooded the market.

    I also haven't heard of one that's been updated for the Series 2, which is a tad bigger (enough that cases made for the Series 1 and first-gen "series 0" won't fit). Someone over at the MacRumors forums (I think) got an existing brand case for his Series 2, found it didn't fit, and the manufacturer took it back and refunded his cost, saying that they were going to have to create a new version.

    I haven't looked -- but I know some are out there that don't totally suck. I'll keep my eyes open.

    Correct.

    By "replacing the 7900", I mean that's my current after-work watch (nights, weekends). If I get an AW, I'll be using it instead of the G-Shock (which I really like).

    The only band that I could find that remotely resembles a G-Shock was the Supcase brand cases.

    Bumping this thread in case anyone has seen anything. I can't find many [quality] choices, but I would think there's a market for people who are rough on their watches- I'll be wearing mine mountain biking. Most of the bands seem to be really cheap, based on the reviews.

    ^Supcase appears to be one of the better ones.

    I am surprised there are so few aftermarket rugged cases for the AW. The design of the Supcase case shown above is not well balanced - the exposed crown is too delicate compared with the rest of the case. The Lunatik case looks better, but being made in aluminum, it would scratch easily and won't look nice soon. The plastic version may take a beating better. Other options come with just the case shrouding the watch and using the OEM strap - again, unbalanced design IMO. But the one I kind of like is the Catalyst Waterproof case. It has a coherent design and looks quite playful. But it does not have the g-shock rugged style.

    I saw the Catalyst but there are so many negative reviews about it breaking that I couldn't wear it with confidence.
