What is the least expensive new and still available G-Shock with full analog display? Full analog meaning NOT digital or analog-digital, and using only hands and dials.

I've done some research myself and it occurs to me that anything analog equals more money in the G-Shock world. I wonder what you guys think and what models you can find.

Are you inspired by your recently re-posted disassembly video of G-Shock-HighFashion? I know I am. :)

The cheapest on RRP is the GW-3000B. Of course you might find a good deal on others.

The next two cheapest are the GS-1400 and the GW-4000.

The ones I’m aware is gw3000 and gw4000, sometimes gwa1000 and mtg1200. Unless you count the date window as digital display too.

To all others, thanks for the input so far will look into those models.

I had analog fever (including ana-digi) for a while and my favorite by far is the GWA1100, granted i was never able to afford MTG, MRG lines.

gac100/110 series
quite a few other colour available
around $100-150US |>



what do i win? :p
My goodness, I didn't know they still sell real G-Shocks with an actual crown! ;-) Just a basic analog watch with chronograph, which you need to do manual date adjustment depends on how many days the month has. I also hate chronograph watch with a big second hand parking there blocking the view. So no go man!

But for your effort, I called Ibe san and he agreed to give you a bow. :-d

I should have clarified, you have fully answered my title question: "what is the least expensive full analog G-Shock?" And that the least expensive full analog G-Shock is the GAC series. Hence the bow from Ibe. ;-)

But it's just me being picky that the GAC won't be my watch. As of this point I still haven't make up my mind on which analog G to get, it's just not a whole lot of choices in this category. I might just wait for a break in the pricing for the MTG-B1000, since it checks all my boxes except the price. ;-)

agreed on the mtgb, will be a long while before i get one to try. as far as all ana's go, personally id just go with a nice used gwa1000



or splurging on a gwa1100. in fact im still considering the -2a or the fc after all these years. great looking watch imo

Both the GWA1000 and GWA1100 look very good. I regret I didn't pick one of these up few years back, when there were more available. Now they are harder to find and not as many colorways to choose from.

The GAC series are all out of production though aren't they?
