My wrist is ridiculously small even though I am 6 foot tall, my wrist is shy of 7 inch.

I have a good looking Omega Seamaster being worn on a day-to-day work basis.

As summer is coming, I am looking for a less expensive but sturdy and reliable watch to wear during weekend sports and/or gardening.

G-shock caught my eyes, especially those GA100, GA110, GA200.
However, they are like monsters sitting on my tiny pathetic wrist.

Any suggestions?
(P.S. I like choreograph as oppose to digital numeric face)
thanks.

I'm in the same situation, 5.9 foot with skinny wrist, I found that the G-5600 is perfect for me, the GW-9200 looks OK but the strap is a bit too long by 1/1.5cm

I think the GW-2500 should be OK for guys like us, it wears smaller than the GA-100

My AWGM100-1ACR is smaller than most G-Shocks, and it is an analog.

It is smaller in every dimension than my GW2310 (left).

thanks for the recommendation, but GW2500 is out of the price range.
I looked at the spec and found old model G100 has similar size of GW2500.
I already have a quite expensive watch, and I don't want to pay more than $200 to track time while doing gardening.

Here's a better picture than my first one. The AWGM100-1ACR, on the right, is possibly the smallest analog G-Shock. The price is right, too. I bought it from Amazon for less than US$80.

I think the GW2310-1, on the left, is a good comparison. It is noticeably larger than AWGM100, both in measurement and on my wrist.

The 5600 series will probably turn out to be the smallest of all, but it has a digital movement. 5600s get recommended to people who need to fit their watches under tight sleeves, for example.

what I hate most is that baby-g has a huge logo on the face.
Otherwise I would wear one and pretend to be wearing g-shock.

Anyway, AWGM100 is a good suggestion. I will seriously consider that.

Indeed, already noticed that point on an another thread...

Baby on male wrist... that is weird :think:
And even on an adult female wrist :roll: (hope I used the right word...)

There is the "club Gs" and "mini Gs" - looking like smaller versions of normal models and without the "Baby" :-d. Unfortunately they are not sold in all markets.

cheers, Sedi :)

the AWG-M100 is an excellent choice... I have skinny sub 7" wrists too and it looks quite small on mine, not too small mind. it looked a bit freaky when I put it on this morning after wearing my king since last Thursday though with the sizes being at the opposite ends of the spectrum haha! I think the big king is possibly a bit OTT on my tiny wrist but im enjoying it nonetheless. the AWG-M100 seems to be great value too, that partly made my mind up last year when looking for my first G and I was looking at the GA-100 like you too. For a solar, atomic, digi-ana watch I think you will be hard pressed to find a greater combination of value, features and wearability on a small wrist.
