Good grief, YES!!!!!

You're quickly reducing the openness folks will have for your channel, because it looks like all you're interested in is increasing traffic.

WF is about something else all together.

I think the MT-G steel solar atomic is one heck of a piece of timekeeping!!!!!

Ok, bapackerfan's option above is nicer imo, but here's the one G-Shock I own:



I greatly prefer the steel option and couldn't resist this one at the price it was being offered.

Rangeman 9400

While I served in the Army I became very familiar with Casio G-Shocks as they were hands down the most popular choice of watch due to their durability and functions. That said, they were never for me and I am not sure why that was to be frank. Then I came across the Rangeman 9400 and knew at first sight that this was to be my G-Shock and I can tell you first hand it is an exceptional watch that I have worn hiking/backpacking/camping/snow-shoeing as well as daily wear (in rotation of course with other watches of mine)and it has and does serve me well.

My brother has an MT-G.
As much as I like it, I just can't spend that much on a GShock.
It cost as much as my Nomos Club for crying out loud.
My favourite was my DW5600 in orange that my GF kidnapped.


My favourite current Gshock is the
AWG100
amazing value for the money

No GWX56? No GW3000bb1? Or GW5610?

Casio has sold 36,000,000 G's since they were introduced in 1983.
This does not count the other iterations like Edifice, Mr. G., Super
Illuminator (Source Casio website)

Name another watch company that is as innovative and aware of
customers wants in watches as Casio.

Have you experienced "Resin Rot" of strap separations in your Rangeman?
Seems a common malady according to the World Wide Web.

I've had more probs with other brands than with Casio.

Seiko is probably more innovative.
But they seem clueless as to customer wants.

Casio rendered more watches featuring my wants than any other brand
I like. More wants than things I didn't want in other words.
Biggest gripe with Casio is selling watches with what looks to to be putrid
colored cases and straps

Have you noticed brightly colored G's end up in the clearance section of
amazon pretty regularly?

Bought a PRG270 recently in Red. Clearance price $33.00 on the Zon.Reg-
ular price $124.00

I rest my case!

No, I've never had any issues at all and it's a watch I sure have not been gentle with.

Exactly. Tougher than a 50 cent round steak.
IMO they were designed to take abuse.
But several podters have complained of strap
separation probs due to excessive exposure to
Ole Sol.

Wearing my GD350 today.

Maybe they just got lemons.

I drive a Mazda 3 Hatchback that received rave reviews and drove nice while I took it out for a test drive and since I bought mine I have had nothing but trouble with it. A family member has the exact same car and has had not one bit of trouble with theirs Leave it to me to get the lemon.

I have to say though that I really love my Rangeman. The watch has really impressed me and I was never really a G-Shock fan before. Maybe saying I wasn't a fan is not correct, it was more along the lines of not seeing the right one for me. I have really come to appreciate the Casio G-Shock line and have had to show true restraint in not buying a Mudmaster and a Gravitymaster, as both of those really appeal to me, though the Rangeman will always be my first G-Shock love.
