Thank you for the list. What make the G-800BD your favourite?

I will add the GW-1600BJ in the list as well.

a couple things actually:

1. the unique display colour which is not found on many other G's. the turquoise/bluish/greenish (hard to catch, depends on light) display gives the watch a stealthy, yet extremely legible look. the colour helps to heighten contrast, also if light conditions getting low.

2. the module: it's the same as in the G-9000 mudman which i consider one of the best to date. however the G-800 doesn't have the hard to push buttons of the mudman, which i never really liked. for me, they are simply not user friendly enough for daily tasks.

3. the bracelet: while the resin strap on the mudman isn't bad, the metal bracelet of the G-800 is simply stunning. it wears extremely comfortable (as lots of g-shock's with metal bracelet) and it fits the watch also very good from an aesthetical point of view.

4. non-solar, but a solid CR2025 battery. i'm simply not a big fan of solar watches, but i am a big fan of CR lithium battery types (long life, high capacity, insensitive to extreme temperature drifts).

5. all of the above makes the G-800 one of the best g-shock's for me.

Great run down on its features. I have a mudman and yes the button is its down fall.

I have to agree. I read the thread on boiling the outer case to soften it but I wasn't crazy about that. With my luck I would probably just end up making resin soup. Besides, I heard some report that it softened the buttons up only slightly more than factory.

I still like my Mudman, though.
