Those are all great points! Thank you for your thoughts. I also think the titanium must be the ultimate square.

From your experience, do you tend to baby it or treat it differently than a cheaper square due to price/materials?

Also, thanks for the recommendation on the G-Shock forum. Do you think you could link me the forum? I’m newer to navigating Watchuseek and I’ve been trying to find the right forum. Maybe a “G-Shock Square Owners” thread or something like that?

Apologies I’m terrible at navigating this Tapatalk app!

I'm retired and don't do much hard manual work. But since I have so many g-shocks, if I were going to do something where the watch could get damaged (maybe digging a ditch or something like that) I would wear a cheap one like my DW-5600E ($30 on sale). So I baby them in that sense. But 99% of the time, they won't see hard use anyway so I can wear any of them whenever I want.

I have a G-Shock and a regular Casio. I got the G-Shock because it has data storage capacity, although it's quite cumbersome to use, but I still like it. The size is great and not as overly large as some of them are.

No G-shocks in the collection but I have one of those huge titanium Casio Pathfinders (even bigger than a G-shock) with the electronic compass, altimeter, barometer, compass bezel, and "Tough Solar" movement. Does that count? It's crazy light and the altimeter and compass are actually useful since I like to hike. I haven't worn it in a long time though, simply because it's gigantic

I have a Casio W-59 (50m WR variant of the F-91w) that gets far more use, and since I haven't broken that I figured I don't need a G-Shock.

I have a G-7600 that gets worn on the water when it might get bashed around (surfing/sailing). I could wear my Garmin but it’s a bit big.

It's my first watch and the one that I wear the most. It may not be the prettiest but I have the most memories with it.

I've got a total of three G-Shocks, and one of them has been with me on multiple deployments and training ops. None of them have missed a beat and a truly solid performers. Can't say enough good things about them.

I have a Garmin Fenix that does pretty much everything I would want and then some that most would choose a G-Shock for, but I get why some people enjoy wearing/collecting them.

Six Casios, 5 G-Shocks. They're cheap, fun, collectible and nigh indestructible. What's not to like? I usually wear them hiking, doing yardwork and when cooking for the timers.

Casio A168WA-1, GA2100, GMS2100, GMS5600, GWM5610-JP1, G-Shock Mini GMN-550:



Do wish they made a smaller fitness tracking model. I think the big ones are hideous.
