I am wondering this.

I started off leaning that way. After reading some intelligent debate from cal.45 it is no longer important to me. Atomic isn't important because syncing isn't possible here (Hawaii) unless i just want that feature for whatever reason.

My solars get more wrist time. not because I'm worried about the battery but because I happen to like those models more!

out of my 15. 3 are solar (2 kings 1 gr7900)

I tend to wear my solars more as well.. cause it bugs me if its not on High charge. Medium bugs me, never had it on low. so on a nice sunny day, i wear one to charge it.

Although I only own/owned three G's (7900, GF-1000 and GWF-1000), I'll only consider the models with solar!

Most of mine are battery. It's mostly that I have a number of older watches. But I find the battery modules tend to be better than the solar counterparts.

I wear my battery powered models and my solar models equally. I have more battery models currently but I also rotate which model I wear daily

I have more battery Gs, because most are older models.

I notice newcomers to the G scene do NOT want to buy a battery however. I expect solars to hold value better going forward.

My Riseman and Mudman (Asian market model) are both solar and Atomic....my other 4 are battery. I like the Rise and Mud better so I tend to wear those more often.

Being a vintage collector I have to say about 50/50 as far as what I wear. I have a few of the solar G's and LOVE them. Especially the atomics. I still love my original '80's squares too. Cheers -Ronbo

For me solar or battery is not the main reason on choosing which watch to get or wear. Its more on design & function. Im more on battery for now.

Out of about 12 G Shocks that I have only four are solar powered. I used to prefer solar and atomic but I have found that I like to collect older models like the DW5600C and the DW5300. Since G Shocks are fairly easy to change the batteries on, I prefer the battery powered ones. Though I still like my solar and solar/atomic models.

Solar is not preferred for me. I don't mind if it is but it's not the deciding factor whether I get a G or not. I have 6 G's now with a 7th on the way. 3 are solar. The others use CR2016 or CR2025 cells. These should last me 5-7 years or more easily. I have 4 more on my "short list" and they are all battery powered - 3 using CR2025 and 1 using CR2016.

I used to wear solar more, but recently i don't really care (DW5600EG is just too awesome and its not available with solar). :)

All my Gs have solar/atomic. Another on the way.

I think generally speaking, most people (outside of WIS) who wear Gshocks, don't wear solar/atomics. Most of the people in my area who are attracted to Gshocks are junior high and highschool aged kids. And most of them are attracted to the glossy Ghoscks, most of which aren't solar/atomic.

Me though..that's all I buy and wear. Yes, admittedly Solar/Atomic is completely unnecessary and complete overkill. But man, that is the ONE THING I LOVE....I LOVE about Casio and their Gshocks...all the crazy technology they pack into it....Just gotta have it.
