Awesome!

Been itching for a new G lately but funds are very tight. Going to have to wait a while but it will make it all the better.

The best thing about a G is that you can buy one at a very low price in the us you buy a dw-5600 at a discount for shout 40$... Simple and a companion for life, were did I eat this before
I know you own a few, and Im thinking of selling my gw-7900b could be you're interest, our Santos will have something to say about this one, he wants one

Yup, I keep seeing some really interesting offers on these. It's a good thing I haven't got a Paypal account... but I'm thinking about getting one!

Did something with one of my G’s I had never done before...... I wore it in the shower.

Obviously it held up great and had no problems what so ever. My o pay hesitation in doing this in the past is I enjoy very hot showers and the heat may lead to condensation buildup inside the watch, but on this occasion that did not happen. I also worry about the soaps affecting the rubber seals. Once or twice may not hurt but if I showered with it daily I may run into a problem with the seals deteriorating and eventually letting water in.

It's fun, isn't it?  :D
I think you shouldn't worry too much about it.
It can withstand lying in the sun and also the salty body sweat etc. as well, right?  :think:

Very true.

I must admit I did not wear my normal G-Shock in the shower but my less expensive “beater” G-Shock just in case.

Hi guys. I'm thinking of buying my first G-Shock. Ideally below $100 and has clear watch hands and bezels as my eyes aren't perfect anymore and I want to know the time when I wake up without glasses.

I'm looking at this model. Are there better models for me below $100?

Do you know the model number of this one? That would help beyond knowing you want an ana-digi. There are a bazillion different G-Shock models.

I got two gshocks, both solar but the one also atomic, that one is my everyday watch, although I’ve had my eye on a citizen for a while, just funds are tight and would have to get the the Mrs approval..

That's a GA-800-1A.

You got the info on the Indonesia page for Casio.

Very clean look, like it!

A question:
Are you going to use it primarily for telling time or do you plan to use the stopwatch, alarm and other features much?

Battery is good for about 3 years and it's a common size CR2016 3v lithium coin cell. That presumes, according to the docs on the 5535 module inside, that you only use the LED to illuminate the dial once per day and the alarm is only sounding ten seconds per day. Those two things (LED backlight and alarm sounding, which includes countdown timer alarm function) will run the battery down sooner if used heavily. If you're going to use the stopwatch feature much, be prepared to move the analog hands out of the way of the LCD display (there's a way to do that, and move them back again with some button presses).

Take a look at the GA-700 which should be under $100 USD, an alternative to this one. It has the 5522 module inside, uses the same CR2016 coin cell, and specs give battery life at about 5 years. Doesn't have a seconds hand for timekeeping but presume the LCD display would provide that. Minute hand increments every 20 seconds which isn't very perceptible on a watch unless you gaze at the dial looking for it. Operation is similar and if you use the stopwatch much you have to move the analog hands out of the way and then restore them afterward (a couple function button presses do this). As with the 800, battery life will be shortened if the LED backlight or alarm sounding are used heavily.

Was looking to find a "solar" ana-digi G-Shock that would avoid battery replacements. Didn't find one, but didn't do extensive searching, so that doesn't mean they don't exist. That's something to consider if there is one.

Yup, there are a bunch o'them but not very affordable. Think at least 3-digit price.
