Post-Purchase Evaluation

G-Shock is well-known as a indestructible-like watch and looking at the aggressive looking 51.2mm watch, it's hard to disagree. It is a bigger sized G-Shock compare to the other model which is very bold and trendy looking. G-Shock cleverly plays with the combination of colors on most of their G-Shock that created a fashion trend on majority younger people.

If you are looking for a G-Shock that is neither colorful nor young looking, GD100-1BER is the answer. The stealth look is a big plus point for this specific G-Shock. The negative screen on the all black color scheme has given the watch a very manly look. Not forgetting the cool-looking Blue illumination LEDs that is used instead of the ordinary electro-luminescence found on most G-Shock. And, it has a improved battery lifespan of 7 years which does not give the hassle of replacing the battery for every 2-3 years found on most G-Shock.

G Shock GD100-1BER, a big, bold, high technology equipped and muscular stealth looking watch that will look good on any wrist of any age.

I like this watch but it looks gigantic on you. Is there a guideline on how big your wrist has to be to wear various sizes of G-shocks somewhere?
