I own quite a few.

I've learned that the bigger watches, like both of these, but particularly the gwg, are made for wearing with long sleeves. They thrive in a long sleeve, the bigger sleeve the better because they are good at holding the sleeve cuff back and holding their ground on the wrist by remaining uncovered. They also look good, their visible, Bam, it's there and it's not hiding, and u don't have to go looking for it. Cold gear, construction Attire, LEO or military operator uniforms, and particularly gloves. They float above it all.

Although I wear all of them because I love them, when iam wearing Short sleeves, it dawns on me that I'm wearing the right watch at the wrong time, the big watches that is. . It's like wearing a thick gold necklace with a suit to a formal dinner. There's better jewelry for that occasion, and as such there's watches for different occasions. Of course then there's some outfits where I pull it off 100%.

I find myself wanting a gshock square at most times, for most outfits, they are almost invisible and low profile, they don't call as much attention as the bigger brothers though, not a bad thing either. The big watches get a lot of attention. I've seen people stare at my gwg1000 and gpw2000 from 10 feet away, and I assume their trying to figure out what exactly im wearing, assuming from their facial expressions. A point to note for sure. I don't discourage owning and wearing them solely because of this. On the other hand these two are the biggest eye candies of the collection. They've got lots of details and shapes to absorb visually.

Point is, in tropical climate like texas, I wear these when I like. But to wear them 24/7? In casual short sleeve I prefer smaller profile and less attention grabbing watches. Then again I don't know you might live in Alaska, in which case you'd also need a low temp lcd function.

I recommend the second one, the radio controlled one, precisely because it's radio controlled. You might or might not know, but all watches except smart watches, are accurate to about 15 seconds a month give or take. Some more some less. So you'll have to adjust it at some point, except radio controlled watches because they'll correct themselves daily.

But Get either, they are indeed amazing and rewarding to wear. You'll find yourself soon also getting a square for a edc beater You'll see. I'd recommend a gws56001jf

Casio GW-S5600-1JF G-SHOCK Tough Solar Watch

There's certainly cheaper squares, but I fancy that one.

u/roy-orbison- · 33 pointsr/gshock

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.

u/narwhalpiguy · 4 pointsr/gshock

If you want any watch with both a compass and temperature readings, it sounds like you'd be better off with a Casio Pro-Trek. They have more sensors than G-shocks, and are normally cheaper.

Here's one that costs only 50$ and has a compass, altimeter, thermometer, and barometer. That being said, it's not solar powered, and it has a negative display, which some people dislike (negative displays are slightly harder to read than positive ones).

If you want to go cheaper or really want a positive display, here's a 40$ one, but it does not have a compass or tough solar.

If you have your heart set on a g-shock. The only one with a compass and thermometer is this one, which, at 180$, does break the bank.

If you don't really care about a compass or thermometer that much and really want a g-shock, I can personally vouch for this at 40$, it's a steal. Other commonly recommended G-shocks are this one because it's less bulky and this one because not only is it less bulky, but it's one of the cheapest G-shocks with multiband-6 (for automatically syncing itself to the correct time) and tough solar.

My overall recommendation to you would be the 50$ Pro-Trek, as I think it fits your needs the best for cheap. However if you are against negative displays, it might not be for you.

Edit: Also the watch you chose is pretty cool. I just saw it was only 62$ on Amazon, that's a great option as well.

I was looking for a Rangeman for a long time. I haven't seen many in Germany especially the Japanese import ones. First, I wanted get a GW-9400BJ-1JF but they are crazy expensive.

I was randomly checking a second hand website and came upon the one that I bought. The price that he was asking for seemed reasonable, we bargained a bit and I pulled the trigger. I am glad that I did. It is Jap spec and had Carbon Fiber band. It only doesn't have a negative display.

I really want to do a Display conversion. I have always wanted to have a Rangeman with negative display. After using it like the way it is for a while, I am going to a Stealth Conversion. I original bezels around 25€, so I will go for it and try it.

But I am afraid of doing the Negative Display Conversion. Because there are somethings that I do not really understand. For example, why can we not just flip the original polarizing film the other way around, and use the original polarizing film? I haven't seen anyone doing a conversion on a Rangeman. I am not feeling really confident to dissemble one either! Did anyone try doing it? Can anyone help me out?

u/1nky0ct0pus · 2 pointsr/gshock

I like the normal classic black DW-5600-E1V the best out of the 5600s. It's cheap ($40), a neutral color to match any outfit, tough, no frills. It was my first Gshock and the one that got me started collecting.

Be aware that you can also buy different color bezels and straps if you want to customize your watch. Out if all the models the 5600 has the most customizability options.

This site has a list and pics of all the 5600s. Click on one you like and you can buy the bezel and or strap. It is also good for browsing for a style you like and getting the model name to search for a site that carrys it.

This site also has spare bezels and bands. It's also UK based I believe so might be a better option for you.

u/casterofdreams · 1 pointr/gshock

The GWXs I don’t recall if they were declared. To be honest I don’t remember the paper work, if there was paperwork. The second order was declared. The values were in Japanese Yen.

Your GWX is nice. I’ve seen it in person. Shiny black is cool. As for a better place? I’ve only ever dealt with Amazons third party sellers.

If you go that route here’s the link: Casio Men's GWX-5600-1JF G-Shock G-Lide Tough Solar Radio Controlled Watch [Japan Import]

The seller “Last Samurai” is the seller of my second order.

u/JUNGLE_HABITAT · 3 pointsr/gshock

If you're looking for something a little bigger with a more modern design that also has solar and atomic, then I would recommend the GW6900-1. I'm pretty certain this is the best price I've ever seen it at:

u/highandtightgshock · 1 pointr/gshock

These are slightly out of your price range, but worth it in looks and technology. AWGM-100-1AC or AWGM-100b-1AC. There is also the AW590-1A.
These are all smaller G-Shock watches, but they wear very comfortably.

Personally, I like the bigger models because of their rugged masculine looks on my wrist (I have a 7.5" wrist). If you have a large wrist, you might also consider saving up for a GA-1000.

u/Lagotta · 1 pointr/gshock

So: a Seiko analog?

A pilot style analog?

Amazon search makes it pretty easy: here's $199 or less, casio/seiko/citizen

I like this one

Probably too big:^PLA&gclid=EAIaIQobChMInvGvuOP-5QIV5x6tBh39QASJEAQYASABEgLUYfD_BwE

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/zeroair · 1 pointr/gshock

Just to be sure, we're talking about the

dw-5600e ($41)
vs the
dw-5600ms-1 ($98)

Is that correct?

I personally would not buy a negative display G as my main watch without having seen a negative display G before. I would also lean toward the less expensive one first because there's less sunk cost, and when you do like it, you can decide to pick up the more expensive one later.

Also if it's JUST the negative display you like about the other one (because the cases are fairly similar) then you could mod the $41 model to negative (I think), pretty easily. And you can black out the white lettering with sharpie. Easy. And then you have a reasonable approximation of that more expensive watch, for much less.

u/PapaUrsidae · 2 pointsr/gshock

Ah, I was wondering (saw the ...10-1BJF on the tag). So it's this one on Amazon Prime that I can get in 2-days? Does the date actually look like it does on the Amazon page (tiny individual dots) or are they solid numbers like your picture shows?

u/LOLREKTLOLREKTLOL · 4 pointsr/gshock

heres a new version of your old watch, i recently bought it and love it. btw i also have a rangeman and wear this new one more often because the size is smaller. oh and its still solar and atomic like the rangeman.

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:

u/reddit455 · 2 pointsr/gshock

how much you willing to spend (for a new watch)?

GW-M5610BC-1JF - inverted display, but ships with the combi bracelet - Japan only I believe.

I got mine "from Tokyo" - friend picked it up for me on a trip.

amazon is about $50 more.. mine was ~15700 yen ... roughly $150/$160

u/firematt422 · 6 pointsr/gshock

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






u/Life-is-Apples · 1 pointr/gshock

The black negative is definitely real nice :) But I didn't have the extra $165 to put down on it. Maybe later down the line I will pick that up to have.

Here's mine:

The G-Shock GW-9400-1CR "Rangeman" and I picked it up on Amazon here:

u/babyivan · 1 pointr/gshock

I wear each one at least once a week to get some sun. I also have a plug in light charger that I cycle them on to ensure a good charge.

CoolFire Solar Watch Fast Charger...

u/JKC307 · 5 pointsr/gshock

Looks awesome! Is that the Rangeman 9400-1 ? I’ve been eyeing that for a bit. Now I think i have to get it...

u/mbrown29 · 1 pointr/gshock

Thanks for the reply, reddit455. You were right. The watch just needed more sun time. It's hard to believe being out in the sun all day on the river and at the beach didn't give it even enough to get past half charge. I ordered this charger and it solved my issue. Before using this device, my battery never got past 1/2 charge, according to the dial/meter. After a night of charging on this, the battery meter was at FULL. After a few hours off the charger, the meter said about 3/4 full. That night I put it back on the charger (this was last night). Today, I wore the watch for a full 14 hours and the meter is still sitting at FULL. This is either a huge battery or a slow charging watch...or I'm just expecting too much of the watch. Not sure... But thanks for the advice, stranger. I just needed to charge it more.

u/entropy_reached · 1 pointr/gshock

I was optimistic at best, I didn't see anything on Casio's websites, but on Amazon it mentions it. Here's the link:

u/Tuberomix · 1 pointr/gshock

For that price I'd personally get the G-Shock Rangeman GW-9400. It has all the sensors and features you'll find in that ProTrek, with G-Shock toughness. Only thing is that it's digital only unlike that ProTrek, so if you specifically want an analog-digital watch then it's not ideal.

I couldn't find any information about a PRW-510. The ProTrek PRG-510 does seem decent. However it's an older model, with older sensors. In 2013 Casio upgraded the ABC sensors to new and improved "Triple Sensors Version 3". So nowadays it's worth getting a watch with v3 sensors. The ProTrek PRG-270 is really good value, it's only $100 but you get those latest ABC sensors. The only features it really lacks are solar power and atomic time (which syncs with radio for accurate time, though it doesn't work everywhere in the world). The aforementioned Rangeman has all that. Though again these are all digital and I don't know if you actually prefer analog.

u/Jeddix · 2 pointsr/gshock

You can always just buy something like this:

I have one because every watch in my collection is a solar powered watch and this makes it easier if I don't want to have them all laying around.

u/Sebastian_Stan · 1 pointr/gshock

Great watch, especially for the price; besides that I would recommend the g shock 5600MS-1

u/ecksor · 1 pointr/gshock

I think neither of these are exactly what you want but should help you as a jumping off point.

u/ISaidNoDecaf · 2 pointsr/gshock

If the look of the square G-Shocks isn't for you, consider the AWGM100 models. They have the radio-controlled atomic timekeeping and tough solar features you're looking for, and I believe it's one of the smallest styles offered outside of the women's lines. I have 6.5" wrists, and I'm extremely happy with my [AWGM100B-1ACR] (

u/NEKCOHM · 1 pointr/gshock

Get a charger. Best thing ever. Charges my watch in about a day.

CoolFire Solar Watch Fast Charger (compatible with all kinds of eco solar watches) TC-1046

u/VirginScrewdrivers · 1 pointr/gshock

Cheapest solar g shocks:

GWM500A-1 - $70

GW6900-1 - $76.50

GWM5610-1 - $84, easily the most popular cheap g shock

I recommend going through this thread for bluetooth functions

But really the only thing I use it for is to check the battery level, but while doing that it automatically time syncs. I don't live somewhere where I always get atomic.

u/zDymex · 1 pointr/gshock

Just ordered a GWS5600 which is basically a GWM5610 but with a jelly bezel and carbon fibre strap. This model is also a JDM model so I had to order from a Japanese seller. There are so many different varieties and you will not regret any of them!

u/JaggedOne · 1 pointr/gshock

What about the AWGM100B-1ACR? That model has an analog display which is on my list of essential features, but has none of the extras that want but don't actually need.

Also, where do you find the names of these things (like Riseman). All I am seeing when I look them up are these long model numbers.

u/chaoszcat · 3 pointsr/gshock

The watch itself looks like GW-5500, GW-5510 or GW-5525, but the striking small triangle at the strap resembles the GW-5525, though the screen color seems off.

I'm more leaning towards GW-5510. Sample:

u/aRTie02150 · 1 pointr/gshock

You can buy and swap out the rubber surrounding the front and get a black strap. Price isn't bad.

u/karuselnein · 2 pointsr/gshock

u/dave_two_point_oh · 1 pointr/gshock

Hmm. It might actually be the same one you've already found (

The dial is actually kind of a deep charcoal grey color. Different lighting will make it seem either blacker or more of a dark silvery color depending on amount/type of lighting and viewing angle.

The pic I posted was taken while sitting under a bunch of fluorescent tubes in a library.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/gshock

Get a Solar/Multi-band watch. If you're using it for the military, any G-Shock will do, but unless you're a pipe-hitter from day 1, any watch will suffice.

If I did it over again, I would get the Timex Ironman 100 for PT/training and the GWM5610 for everyday use. Those both will last longer than your first enlistment.

u/TedJ70 · 4 pointsr/gshock

The obvious option would be the GW-9300 Mudman, although I'd be tempted to spend a little more for the GW-9400 Rangeman.

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/markcocjin · 1 pointr/gshock

Go with wrist size. G-shocks are cheap and durable enough that people can afford to buy upgrades.

I went with the g-shock square. There's a few that are not so cheap though. I'll tell you what I'd get if I already didn't have a metal square.

Look at this baby! Atomic clock and solar. And you see this? The combi-bracelet. If you hate it when a resin strap just crumbles from use.

And when you want to get crazier, you can modify your G-shock with a distressed metal case and bracelet.
