I think his is an Expedition model. I bought it for him when he was 16 (now almost 21). Went through a strap and finally banged it up on a hike where it started condensing under the crystal. He replaced it with the exact same model. I think these are $30-40. He actually wears his 24/7 except, I think, the shower.yeah honestly I had a cheapie like 30 dollar ironman for years and years and it never gave me any trouble at all. I actually kind of prefer them to G Shocks tbh, because they wear smaller
this, plus the fact that you trashed a watch in one week would lead me to consider putting whatever you buy to replace the G-shock in my pocket or somewhere other than my wrist. How important is it to be able to read the time quickly, and how often?When you're hanging 400+ feet up on a steel pole, keeping your watch away from sharp surfaces is very secondary to using your hand for other things lmao. The tower is coated in a sort of galvanization that leaves lots of sharp burrs and protrusions
Probably not vital, but once it was noticed that I was wearing a watch, I got asked what time it was several timesthis, plus the fact that you trashed a watch in one week would lead me to consider putting whatever you buy to replace the G-shock in my pocket or somewhere other than my wrist.

I've been eyeballing one. Looks like it may be one of the best options out there
I can't recommend this watch highly enough. No rotating bezel, but I'm sure you could do the math if timing your climb is that important.
Sapphire, tough PVD coating, ecodrive quartz which doesn't require batteries, 200m water resistance.
I have the perfect watch for you. Casio Lineage LCW-M100TSE. The max width is 40mm, but there's no crown and it's 9.5mm slim and super light being made of titanium. Lug width is 20mm, so you should be able to find tons of straps to swap out. Solar + atomic, so it'll just keep running. My wrist is 6.75" so it should fit you perfectly. And, of course, it has sapphire crystal.
Edit: I forgot to mention that it's a JDM model, but available on the 'bay for under $210 shipped.

I'm glad I could help! And definitely don't keep yourself to that one model, there are a ton of JDM Casio Lineage models that should fit your requirements, with steel, titanium, and even black cases.Now that's a great option. I'm looking it up right now, but it seems to check every box
