The current economy is very bad. People are losing their jobs and homes and a lot of people are becoming homeless. If you were homeless which G-Shock would you want to own and wear while living and sleeping on the streets? Which G-Shock is durable enough for everyday use for a homeless person?

If I don't quit buying them I might be out on the street! :-d If I had to choose... the one I'm most attached to, my DW6100.

Haha...although it's not a G, I would have to say my PRG80-YT. Instead of just begging for change, I could tell people the temperature/barometric pressure/altitude/compass direction for money :-x

dw5600, back to basics . . . .

anything more expensive than that would be tempting to sell for the needed $$$

the dw5600e is more than appropriate. i dont care what you say, but if i saw a homeless with a prg80 i'd think he was more like tom hanks, recreating castaway

I would choose my most expensive one.
Then i could sell it on the street and get food and shelter for some days.
having a watch is the least concern if being homeless i think. :-(

I think if I were homeless I would have far greater things to worry about than what watch I had on my wrist.

I have spent years working with and talking to homeless folks on the streets of Atlanta. I donate time and money to the Atlanta Food Bank and other support groups.

Trust me, for 90% of those folks its a daily survival game. Their watch, or any other such luxury is very low on their list of priorities.
