DW-5600E is the basic (but still great!) no frills square.
Tells the time, has alarms and stop watches, counts up and down, an auto backlight, and calendar to 2039. It's dive rated to 200 meters, and has an electronic luminescent backlight, much like indiglo if you have a Timex.

GWM-5610 is all of the above, along with world time, and has the two biggest features for some: solar charging and atomic radio syncing.
For many, this is the THE "square." It's robust, self sufficient, and has a classic look without looking too dated or too ultra modern. The display is slightly different than the 5600E.

GLX-5600 is most similar to the budget 5600E above but has an additional bit of display for tide and moon information. Still as tough, still as cool looking.

GLS-5600 is a more recent, stylish variant of the 5600E. It come in 4 neat colors (black, white, green, and sand) and features a moving seconds complication on the face. Also, it features a "Low Temp LCD," this LCD is rated to go to -20 C. Honestly as you're wearing it on your person, a normal 5600E can go pretty cold as it also has your body heat. Possibly most importantly for some people, this model comes standard with strap adapters and a really comfy clothes NATO strap standard.

GWM-5610-1BJF is the Japanese only, blacked out model of the radio/solar 5610. These can be imported pretty easily through Amazon, so of cost isn't an issue, don't let the import bother you. The Japanese models also usually feature slightly more supple, softer resin straps and a screwback case, like on a mechanical time piece.

While not exclusively a 5600, if you need a big honkin' watch, the GX-56 is basically a thick 5600. Huge buttons and case, has all of the features of a 5610 with a cool moving seconds graphic like the GLS.

Many of these can be found in various colors and feature variants, so as a recap/guide:

5600 - standard square G Shock

5610 - radio/solar square model

GLX - surfing/tide model

GLS - stylish colors, comes with NATO strap

GX-56 - huge "King" G Shock

BB after model number - blacked out model

JF after model number - Japan import

Hopefully this helped. I had a lot of fun making this.

Casio G-Shock GWM5610-1

Price: $90-$100

Movement: quartz, digital, solar, atomic

Style: sports

Size: 46.7 x 43.2 x 12.7mm (specs from Casio's website)

Link: Casio's page, Amazon page


Solar/atomic version of the DW5600E-1V, but this has a solar-rechargeable battery that should last 10-15+ years, given adequate light. 200m WR. Atomic functionality works in the continental US, most of Europe (including the UK), Japan, and China.

This is a decent value solar/atomic G-Shock, which are the gold standard for watches that can take abuse and beatings.

u/Alakazam · 13 pointsr/Watches

For a simple, analog display watch is practically indestructible, you can probably get him this g-shock 5610

Basically all the functionality a person would need, easy to read display, comfortable, and will easily last 10-15 years without a capacitor change.

You can spend the rest and get him something a bit dressier for days out, maybe like a Seiko sarb033

u/xmorphicx · 10 pointsr/EDC

No information included about your desired price range so I'll just throw out a few suggestions. G-Shock is a solid choice - my favorite is the GW6900 as it is 5 buttons (dedicated light button), solar powered, and sets itself every night to the atomic clock. A slimmer option is the GWM-5610 with the same features except for the dedicated light button. These also have non-atomic non-solar versions for about half the price DW6900 and DW5600 which both come in around $45. These are classic models and won't draw unwanted attention.

If you're looking for something analog, while I hate to recommend another Casio, the MDV-106 dive watch is really hard to beat for 40-50 bucks. Water resistant to 200 meters, real functioning diver's timing bezel, applied indices, rubber strap... it's highly regarded at this price point. Good luck!

u/outlawpickle · 10 pointsr/EDC

My G-Shock is solar powered and automatically sets itself to the correct time every night through radio signals. Never have to change the battery and never have to set the time, it's always running and always correct. I definitely recommend it, I've had two other g-shocks and this self-sufficient one is just so perfect.

u/zeroair · 9 pointsr/gshock
u/LowBrowOrbit · 8 pointsr/Watches

You can get all of the decent models well below your range. Above your price point is where you start getting into GPS timekeeping, sapphire, or multiple sensors like altimeter, barometer, compass, etc. There's a G-Shock sub if you've already narrowed it down to the brand.

But if I had your budget... I'd get this

u/1nky0ct0pus · 8 pointsr/gshock

I recommend the GWM-5610.

I wear it every day.

-Positive LCD screen with bold numbers is very easy to read in all lighting settings including close to darkness

-Auto illumination feature - turn your wrist to look at your watch and it will light up for you automatically if the solar panel senses darkness (can be turned off)

-Multiband 6 automatically sets the time by radio signal once a day so your watch is accurate down to the second at all times

-Solar powered rechargeable battery

-Low profile

The only things I do not like about it is that it is a little small on my wrist, the buttons are small, and I wish it displayed the current time in stopwatch and timer modes.

You can also go with a GWM-6900. Generally the same feature set with a light button on the front of the watch. Bigger buttons , much larger and bulkier than the 5610.

u/Drunk_Panda_456 · 8 pointsr/gshock
u/Mammal_Incandenza · 8 pointsr/Watches

Depends on what you mean by "sports"...that's a big budget so you have tons of options, but if you're playing things like basketball//baseball/golf etc, you'd be better off buying a cheap beater to abuse and a second nicer watch for other times. Constant sharp, impactful hits can mess with mechanical watches (guessing you're not talking about a $6k quartz), sapphire crystals shatter, etc...

I have one of these for when I'm doing something strenuous or potentially damaging -

Yeah, it's ugly in a 1983 kinda way, but it's 200m depth rating, solar battery lasts pretty much forever on even a quick charge, atomic clock (never have to set it), and is generally indestructable.

Plus, as ugly as it is, I think it looks a lot better wearing that playing basketball than being the guy on the court wearing a Rolex for no reason.

It also leaves $5,910 leftover to indulge in whatever great watch or watches you truly love and you won't have to worry that your golf swing is fucking with the movement or an errant fastball just shattered your daydate's crystal.

u/wkfink · 7 pointsr/Watches

Yup, and solar battery.

My personal choice would be this, or the negative display (white digital on black background) version.

u/narwhalpiguy · 7 pointsr/Watches

There's no "best G-shock" per say, but the ones people on /r/gshock are into the most would be both the

GW 9400 because it's the only triple sensor G-shock, and also looks pretty cool.

And the GWM5610 for it's ability to pack in many features into a small simple design.

u/shinbr · 7 pointsr/Watches

Digital. Indestructible. That’s pretty much Casio’s specialty. A G-Shock GWM5610 would be perfect. That being said, Timex also has some good options.

u/nliausacmmv · 7 pointsr/Watches

GWM 5610: If you're okay with digital, it's hard to beat one of these for indestructibility.

GSTS100D: If what you want is analogue, this one is also indestructible.

AWGM100B: Basically the same guts as the last one, but the case is covered in rubber so you don't have to worry about scratching things while you work.

All three of these run off of little solar cells and set themselves automatically from a signal broadcast throughout pretty much all of the Continental US, Europe, Eastern China, and Japan. So all you ever have to set is the time zone and it works the rest out for you. If you really want you can go and buy a crazy expensive G-Shock, but really the only improvement after the $350 region is in the $1000 region when they add GPS so you don't even have to do the time zone manually.

Edit: Got my facts mixed up some; the second one does not have radio-controlled time like the others.

And as long as I'm adding things, I'll add another recommendation: Bertucci makes really durable field watches. Nothing too fancy; just quartz movements in really well-built and tough cases.

u/RivieraBob · 7 pointsr/Watches

Solar powered, radio controlled, tough as coffin nails, and with a slick veneer of the eighties.

u/DeaDly789_ · 6 pointsr/Watches

I think what you're looking for is the GWM5610. I think that's the lowest I've seen any solar atomic G-shock go for, however I'd love to hear if anyone else has some other suggestions.

u/malicious_farts · 6 pointsr/WatchURaffle

Oh, I like it. My list:

u/firematt422 · 6 pointsr/gshock

Best all around G-shocks, in my opinion, from least to most expensive, all under $200.






u/Drunkcook9000 · 6 pointsr/USPS

I'm also a maintenance mechanic, This
is the watch I have. I'm pretty sure it does military time but I doubt you'll find one that does decimal time. If your having trouble with the conversions I'd suggest printing out a conversion table and keeping it with your badge or something

u/johnwclark · 6 pointsr/Watches

For G-Shocks, I have always preferred the comfort of the 5600 over the 6900 series.

It might be worth looking at the Casio 5610, for about $90, you get solar and atomic time syncing. I wore one like this while I was in the army. It has survived multiple deployments, with fewer scars than I picked up, and it still works great. I store it on the handle of my go-bag in the front closet.

u/pandingsoc · 5 pointsr/Watches


For $84 you can get this square g-shock (5610) that has solar battery and atomic timekeeping, which as an engineer you might particularly appreciate, also it is tough as a rock.

You can also spend $500 on this g-shock (5000), which has eveything 5610 has, plus bluebooth connection and a metal bracelet, and a different colorway. There are also a few options in between these two price points.


Mechanical watch:

- you mentioned Hamilton, which offers good value.

- seiko, timex, citizens that other folks in this reddit will recommend

- Orient star recently has this model out It is $550 but you may get it cheaper from grey market. It has power reserve which is a feature I personally like.

u/ZanderDogz · 5 pointsr/malefashionadvice

You have a few choices. You could either go quartz or automatic. Quartz is where you have a battery (and sometimes solar charging), and automatic is when the movement of your wrist winds a little spring in the watch. Automatic watches require resetting every few weeks because they are not as accurate, but some people think they are cool. I will assume you don't want to deal with that, but if you do, something from Seiko would be your #1 best bet for sure.

This particular watch (which is what I am wearing right now) looks delicate but by all means, it is not. It is meant for scuba diving so you can swim with it and it is very durable to the point where I have accidentally used it to block a lacrosse shot and it survived without a scratch.

If you want to go Quartz, and for 200$, probably solar, you will want to go Citizen.

I don't have a citizen myself but they are very highly reviewed over at /r/watches.

You could also go another rout and get a G-SHOCK, which is probably the most durable watch you can buy.

(Both of those are solar power).

I would encourage you to look above your price range a bit, especially if you want to go for a Citizen, because it allows you to get something like this that will last you forever, but you can still get something great for under $200.

The watches I listed here are much more versatile than most of the ones you linked to, (except for the G-SHOCK, don't wear that with a suit!) I will wear my Seiko Orange Monster with anything from a swim suit at the beach or with a black suit at a formal event. Buying from any of these three brands and not from a fashion/clothing brand that also makes watches will guarantee that your watch will last for a very long time. Feel free to PM me or ask for help at /r/watches if you have any more questions or want any recommendations.

u/plinkobyte · 5 pointsr/gshock

What about the GW5610? I love it - it looks great on my 6.75" wrist.

Two versions (I have both):

u/shadowbanningsucks · 5 pointsr/Watches

Casio WSD-F20A-BUAAU GPS watch.

Casio PAG240T Solar powered compass/thermometer/altimeter/barometer watch

Casio GWM5610-1 tough, solar powered, atomic sync, G Shock

Casio F105W simple but great digital watch with a bright back light.

u/stabbyfrogs · 5 pointsr/Military

I honestly have no idea why it's so expensive. Casio makes other solar and atomic G-Shocks that are cheaper. I assume the guts are higher quality and it might be lighter and smaller. (I own this one. I have had it for about 4 years now.)

u/CaneInvidiae · 4 pointsr/Watches

Something like [this] ( should tick the durable and comfortable boxes, though I don't think it can run multiple timers. It should definitely stand up to anything the football field can chuck at it.

u/Weenie · 4 pointsr/Watches

DW5600 is probably going to be your best bet.

This one if you want solar and radio control-

This one if you like the negative display look-

Otherwise, if you're looking for something really slim, go for the F-91W. While not technically a G-Shock, it's bound to be pretty durable, and at $11, it's not like it's a big loss if you break it.

Remember- G-Shocks are chunky. They're always going to look too big, it's just part of the aesthetic. I wear this 51mm GD350 on my 6.75" wrist with no issues, but sold a 46mm Maratac Pilot because it looked too big on me.

u/ShmobLife · 4 pointsr/EDC
u/bangarangy · 4 pointsr/Watches

I'm at two right now, but about to order my third.

I wear the trusty black Seiko SNK809 most days, and a rose gold Orient Capital that my wife got me if I dress up a bit more.

There's a Casio GWM5610-1 on the way soon, and I'm excited.

u/Crunchatize_Me_Cptn · 4 pointsr/Watches

Casio has a ton of small, inexpensive, digital watches and pretty much any of them are good. The F91W for example. That thing is tiny and light. I mean like "I forgot I put this on" light. Downside is the back light light is shit. You could get the Illuminator F105W-1A for a better back light, but roughly the same size. Also a bunch of different Databanks if you like the retro nerdy look.

If you need something durable for a job or whatever then the DW5600 is small (for a G-Shock) and tough as nails. Also the GWM5610 upgrade.

You could get a Timex Ironman, depending on what you're doing with it. Ironmans are designed to be running/workout watches mostly.

u/Tomes2789 · 3 pointsr/Watches

I don't think it's as big as the one you have, but they do make slimmer ones such as this one (which I'm probably going to pick up next haha).

u/StillFlyingHigh · 3 pointsr/Watches

G-shock GWM5610 (as well as many other g-shocks) has a countdown feature by the minute and multiple alarms that you can set to a specific time. With that being said, it's got a bunch of other features such as atomic syncing and timezones that may be unnecessary to your needs so if you want something cheaper, the DW5600 is also available with the features that you requested.

($104.50 USD)

($38.75 USD)

There are countdown timers for some Timex digital watches too!
Look into the Expedition and Ironman lines!

u/CaffeineAndHate_ · 3 pointsr/hiking

I say go for it. I've been wearing a Casio DW-5600 for a decade. I love the watch. But, when it's time to retire it, I'll swap to the Solar and Atomic version. It would be nice not to have to worry about batteries. I'll link it below. It's a simple watch, which I prefer.

u/squatttiepippen · 3 pointsr/EDC

This might be a little above your price range, but I have the GW-5610. Ive had it for over a year now and love it. It's solar powered and has atomic time synchronization

u/Preston205 · 3 pointsr/Watches
u/shyguythrowaway · 3 pointsr/Watches

Yeah, I think you might be right.

GWM-5610 - $95 Atomic sync and tough solar

G-5600 - $78 Tough solar

DW-5600 - $48 The classic

u/ckvoss77 · 3 pointsr/EDCexchange

With the $5 off in coupons from aliexpress and the $92.45 price of the watch on amazon, someone could build this exact setup, brand new, and with the original resin housing and band for cheaper than your asking price ($151.04).

That said, how much can you come down on the price of the watch?

u/lx4 · 3 pointsr/gshock

Unless your boyfriend is a watch geek he likely just means that he wants a g shock square, and not the specific model. There are lots of different models and colors. Just google g shock squares.

This is the standard model. If your boyfriend is interested technology you have one that is solar powered and syncs with an atomic clock via radio signals, my personal favorite.

u/nlofe · 3 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

I got this solar atomic G-Shock years ago and it still holds up just as well as when I got it. My only regret is not getting the cooler-looking monochrome Japanese-imported one for like $20 more.

u/covert7 · 2 pointsr/Watches

With all due respect, if you're worried your 17 year old son will lose or break a watch, then don't buy your 17 year old son a watch.......or just buy it for him and don't worry!

Same reason I don't buy my sister nice things for her birthday; she loses and breaks stuff all the time. I ended up buying her a camera that she couldn't she kept it for a few years and then lost it!

Anyway, I have a recommendation of a g-shock. I think it is a cool watch and his mates will be impressed by all the functions. And trust me, he will have to do a LOT to break this thing!

This is one of my favourite "beater" watches:

It is solar powered, updates the time via atomic sensors (depending where you live), has 5 daily alarms, world time, automatic backlight when you turn your wrist, stopwatch. Oh and it is one of the smallest and most comfortable g-shocks and doesn't look silly. I see mine lasting for a couple of decades honestly.

Edit: And at that cost, you can afford to get him an Orient bambino or Seiko 5 as well for the dressier occasions and interviews.

u/Paito · 2 pointsr/preppers

I recently picked up the G-Shock GWM5610-1 it's solar charge & get time from the atomic clock. Those were 2 features that I wanted in a watch and is really easy to operate. Under $100 >>

u/DragoBirra · 2 pointsr/Watches

Another gshock is the 5610, about bonus color there's a negative display version, but in general I don't recommend negative display. Other colors may exist in old limited edition, but the prices skyrocket

u/BrandonsBakedBeans · 2 pointsr/Watches

I second G-SHOCK. $95 gets you the solar-powered, radio-controlled gwm-5610

Or if you prefer a round shape, the gwm 500 or gwm530 will give you the same features

Edit: I should add, I have the gwm500 and it works well with my 7 inch wrist. The 5600 series is known to be comfortable for pretty much everybody.

u/Frith_Inle · 2 pointsr/Watches

Hey, fellow snowboarder here. I used to ride a ton, but not as much anymore (work, school, friends, life). I've worn 2 G-shocks through 10 years of park riding. They never broke or succumbed to the elements in my experience.

I highly recommend the DW5600E-1V for its low profile and smaller build, as well as low cost. I wear a GWM5610-1 now (pretty much the same thing), which I wear on the inside of my wrist so if I fall on my hands (you're really not supposed to, but it happens, sue me) it doesn't dig into the back of my hand. It fits nicely under a big glove or jacket too.

You could get a Vostok for around the same price and it would probably be fine, but IMO G-shocks were designed for this sort of high impact activity. Definitely recommend.

u/pvdnh · 2 pointsr/Watches

Fwiw I work out in my 6900 and it's small and light and doesn't get in the way.

The 5600 is even smaller.

Both come in solar/atomic which is awesome:
GW6900 which is what I have


u/Pekkleduck · 2 pointsr/Watches

You are looking for a Gshock. There are plenty of variations but this one is one of my favorites.

G-Shock GWM5610-1 Men's Solar Black Resin Sport Watch

Edit: nvm. Didn't realize these were larger than 40mm. Always felt smaller.

u/snarkfish · 2 pointsr/funny

far cry from $10 but you should check out the atomic sync solar powered gshocks that are out now. eg.

u/frankw438 · 2 pointsr/EDC

Casio G-Shock. DW5600 is less than $50. If you step up to the GWM5610, you'll get the same watch with solar power and atomic timekeeping for around $90-ish.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/Watches

I would go with a square G-shock. It's classic, modern, accurate (it syncs with atomic clocks), durable, water-proof, and very much a tool watch. I think it's a perfect work watch and if he's a radiologist he might like how geeky it is.

It's also very understated. When you are meeting patients that have cancer I would pick a non-flashy watch.

The original Made in Japan variant is $300 so it's not a cheap watch.

Casio G-Shock GW-5000-1JF

u/Devvils · 2 pointsr/Watches

The 5600 series is the smallest. That model is solar & atomic (gets a radio signal to set the time each day).

AW591 is a "small" ana-digi with a 45mm diameter.

u/Helenius · 2 pointsr/Watches

You could've have gotten the G-Shock 5600. (Or better yet the radio controlled version)

u/cda555 · 2 pointsr/Watchexchange

Hello Everyone :)

Looking to trade my Zodiac Sea Dragon for a rectangular Casio g-shock tough solar LIKE THIS, or similar.

The Sea Dragon comes on a brand new Bonetto Cinturini rubber strap LINK. I will also throw in an old NATO, but it is a fairly cheap one. I bought the watch new in 2007 and have not worn it very much. It is in good shape.

Album and time stamp.

It is 39mm and wears very comfortably. The model is ZO 2225.

u/thatsharebearkid · 2 pointsr/Watchexchange

Unless I'm mistaken, this exact one is on Amazon for 90 brand new.

Even factoring in your extras, you've priced it a little high. You might want to change the price if you want offers.

u/tigerbravo · 2 pointsr/Watches

You've got a ton of options to choose from. To make the most of your budget, Seiko, Orient, Citizen, and Tissot are some brands to look at. Since you don't like sport watches, if you're just looking for one watch I would recommend the Tissot Visodate which is most of your current budget. You could pair it with a cheap Casio digital for weekend/outdoors wear. But hopefully you'd be able to expand your collection in time.

If you wanted to split your collection a little more evenly financially, there are tons of fantastic options in the $200 range. For automatic dress watches, look at the Orient Bambino range, I would recommend one of their 2nd generation models. Pair that with a Citizen Nighthawk or a G-shock for example and you'd have a highly respectable and seriously versatile two watch collection for your budget.

That isn't to say this is a better option than the Tissot and Casio. There are just a ton of options in your range. Some great value in automatics, and some great tech in quartz if you're looking at the right stuff. Hope you find something that suits you!

u/spareaccount011235 · 2 pointsr/Watches

I am looking for a wrist watch to ask for as my Christmas gift from my parents. (i get to choose)

Need to pick soonish as shipping has to get it to New Zealand by Xmas

Here are my requirements:

analogue or digital

Probably would rather have analogue but digital will be much more likely to have the features i want

Must haves:

  1. timer - count down function
  2. stopwatch ( chronograph )
  3. rain/sweat resistant
  4. washable if it gets dirty
  5. tough for knocks and bumps
  6. has a light (ideally red light as its better for eyes/vision after dark)

    I study farming and am a beekeeper so outdoor a lot getting hands dirty.

    Price is under $100 USD or around that amount. I will consider more expensive options.


    something slightly cheaper than this would be good.



    prefer to be slightly better than this

u/TheBigBadGRIM · 2 pointsr/Watches

Good start. My first watch was a Protrek 3000 (black) and then bought your cream dial Bambino along with an Orange Monster. At this point if you wanna fill that third cushion with a watch, I would recommend a G-Shock.

  • It's far different from the other two in terms of style.
  • It's a watch you don't need to be cautious of while wearing because of it's amazing durability. YouTube videos of torture tests will convince you that your G-Shock could possibly outlast all of your watches even if you beat it up.
  • If you get one with Tough Solar + Multi-Band 6 atomic timekeeping, you'll have a watch that recharges itself and corrects itself to perfect time every few days. Then you REALLY will never have to worry about it.

    The G-Shock GWM5610-1 with classic square look costs $95 on Amazon and the other colorful options are more expensive but really beautiful.

    If you don't want a G-Shock, I would recommend you hold on to your money and just look and learn about watches. You might find that you'll gain interest in specific watch designs and your interest might come and go without you having to spend anything. When I first started this hobby, I got really into open heart watches. I came so close to buying one at one point. Eventually I got sick of looking at them and was glad I never got one. Don't buy on impulse. Buy a watch like you're buying a vacation package, not candy. Eventually you might end up spending as much as an overseas vacation on a single watch. Spend very wisely.
u/PotatoSkies · 2 pointsr/Watches

Do you prefer analog?

I'd choose between the Seikos (I like the skx👍)

If you like the whole Navy Seal thing and don't mind digital.

I suggest a g-shock like the dw6900 or a dw5600.

Or their multiband solar variant.

u/AwakenedSax0n · 2 pointsr/casio

W86 is a great watch for sure.

But my personal favourite for the gym and pool is this one. It has 100m water resist, it's a bit bigger and feels more substantial than the W86 or F-91w.

You said you are new to watches so maybe this next watch is for a few months down the line, but this is my all time favourite. Super durable, solar powered, atomic timekeeping, countdown timer, world time, 200m water resist and (in my opinion) great looking. I've worn this watch, hiking, swimming, gardening, camping, working on the car, woodwork you name it! Perfect timepiece.

I bought this Casio GW-5610-1 for working out because I felt my Suunto Core was too large. I love this watch more than I thought I would and it finds its way onto my wrist quite a bit more than I anticipated.

Tough Solar so you won't have to replace the battery (10-13 years-sih) plus it has Mulit-Band Radio setting so it updates every night, aka the most accurate watch you will own.

I wouldn't take that surfing for these reasons:

I'm not sure, here's the exact model I have on amazon

G-Shock with solar charging and sets itself to the atomic clock.

This and this are good ones.

I love the Casio G shock series. The one below is solar and updates time automatically.

u/WatchandThings · 1 pointr/Watches

I think it depends a lot on what functions you are looking for in the g-shock. For example I wanted a compass and barometer in mine, and since it was not going to be my everyday wear watch I didn't mind it being big. So I landed on the rangeman.

If you just want g-shock toughness, then anything should work for you, but I'd probably recommend the classic in solar.

Have a Suunto, much prefer the Casio G-Shock 5000 series. They're simple, cheap, they work, they're damn near indestructible and you can bring them anywhere. I've had mine (5600E) for 5 years, abusing the shit out of it and sometimes going weeks without taking it off, including swimming and shower. It looks like it's covered in smegma. I haven't even had to change the battery.



u/pokstad · 1 pointr/gshock

The Rangeman is really nice but it's also very large and thick so it can interfere a lot with daily tasks. Slimmer profile watches are better for not getting in the way. I would check out the 5600 or 6900 series watches:

There's also a really cool military concept theme product line that has low visuals and red back lights:

If you're looking for practical and us INTJs. This watch fits the description.

I have one and it's nice knowing that the little thing on my wrist is right. No really, my watch is right according to what our society recognizes as time.

It can be a bit finicky for actually syncing with the atomic clocks around the world but it's also fun to play with and figure out.

u/crazydave_w · 1 pointr/Watches

Thanks! Seems less bulky than many of the other g-shocks. It looks like its available on

I bought this watch a few months ago on Amazon. (

I wore it a handful of times when I first got it but after the first week or two it just sat in my room. I just can't get into digital watches.. Watch is very clean, only signs of wear are on the band where I had it strapped on. Original G-Shock tin included along with all instructions.

Asking $75 shipped CONUS

Also open to FTF sale, located in the DMV area

Casio G Shock Solar watch w/ atomic timekeeping

u/i_speak_the_truf · 1 pointr/Watches

This would be my choice for someone like you described:

Not only is it super sturdy to survive any kind of abuse, but with the solar power, atomic time-sync, and multiple digital functions it's about as practical as one can get.

For something a bit more premium for a solid "business casual" look and a much more robust band (probably the only downside of the Casios) I'd get this one of these:

Again these are very practical watches and very robust with Sapphire crystals and metal bracelets that should survive decades of use without any service or battery changes.

u/ctyt · 1 pointr/Watches

For $10 more, you could have a version of that watch with a conventional LCD display, solar charging, and atomic clock sync.

u/otterom · 1 pointr/Watches

$1,000 is super-luxury level.

My GWM5610-1, the perfect wristwatch, would like a word...

Assuming the Movado is the 1881 automatic I suggest something other than a dress watch or sports watch unless he is the type of person to only like one or two styles of watches. Like the other poster stated the Bambino is a great watch for $150 but compared to the $1000 watch in the same dressy category it wouldn't be fair.

Personally I would go for a more casual/fun watch at that price range. A dressy watch would have to compete with the Movado and Omega for wrist real estate but a casual watch he can wear for yard work or whenever wearing the other watches would be too risky.

Field Watch-Quatz-$130

Classic Square G-Shock- Auto updates time in the northen hemisphere every night-95$

If you still want a dressy automatic Orient and the Seiko 5s are your best best.
For dressy Quartz check out the Citizen watches.

Casio Men's G-Shock GWM5610-1 Tough Solar Black Resin Sport Watch


u/skyleth · 1 pointr/Watches

i know you've already excluded the large and almost comical G-Shocks but did you see the classic 5600 and the 5610 w/ solar and radio controlled time? Much more subdued in size, and I feel like they look better than the Ironman series.

u/JohnThomasSteakhouse · 1 pointr/streetwear

I usually wear this. It'll stand up to anything

Looking for a no-bezel GMT recommendation.

I'd like to get a watch I could wear with a button-down or a suit. Wanted something different than what I have, and thought a a GMT would be interesting.

I think the closest to what I have in mind is the Orient Polaris GMT. The Grand Seiko
is also the general idea.


  • GMT function (extra hour hand; no preference on "true" GMT)
  • No external bezel (not like the Rolex GMT Master or Explorer II)
  • <= 42mm
  • Silver, not gold
  • Simple, not flashy (not a fan of 10 chronograph functions and a bunch of text)


  • < $1000
  • 38mm-40mm
  • White dial; blue or black OK
  • Quartz, especially with radio sync or solar
  • Durable: sapphire, >= 5atm/50m water resistance

    The collection I'm diversifying:

  • 42mm diver with blue face (Orient Mako USA II)
  • Square G-Shock (GWM5610-1)
u/worldrallyblue · 1 pointr/Watches

Your requirements are pretty ridiculous but this is the closest you're going to get:

u/sircarbonmojo · 1 pointr/Watches

super cheap option would be something like this Casio, or you could get a G-Shock like this

u/Barbonmx · 1 pointr/Watches

How about 200m and the most rugged there is?. It also has a date, it's a world timer, has a stop watch and it's solar and atomic.

If you don't like the digital look then maybe the Casio duro? Is a diver with 20bar and it's rugged with a date.

u/slip81 · 0 pointsr/Watches

The "regular" ones, non colored, something like this.

Like I said I don't have an previous experience with the brand, and thought the colored models may be considered designer watches and therefore be less durable than the original models.
