    I have two:

    [​IMG]
    A DW5600 that I got in 1985 or 86 that I don't wear anymore and so far is on it's 2nd (!!) battery.

    [​IMG]
    And a Mudman that is my go-to watch for outdoor activities.

    Recently I almost got an orange Riseman, but was able to fight back the urge. Barely, though [​IMG].

    G Shock Model 500A. Multiple tours to Iraq, Afganistan and my EDC watch as street cop in Washington, DC. 9 years old with no problems! My only wish is I could adapt a Maratac or WaterBourne type band to it.

    I'm glad to see other EDCrs with a love for the g-shock. I see alot of guys with really expensive maratac watches and wonder what makes them better than my trusty g-shock.

    I have a DW-6900 in navy blue. It is about 12 years old. Working on its third battery at the moment. If I ever get to the point where it is wearing out I will definitely get another. Right now, the only need for a second would be to change colours to match what I'm wearing. It doesn't get worn a lot, but it is in rotation with the other watches I own.

    DW6900. Did a little research between it and a Mudman, and ended up getting it due to inpatience. Great Watch!

    Thats what I have. Great watch. Love the atomic feature, as I always know exactly what time it is. The barometer is also very useful, to watch it fall as a precursor to bad weather. The thermometer is not that great, because your wrist heats up the watch and gives a false reading, but you can remove the watch and eventually you'll get an accurate reading. I have several watches, but this one is my favorite. Beats out my Seiko Black Monster, which is not nearly as accurate - as nothng beats atomic.

    I have an AWG-101 and G-100 here, which I wear for when I don't want to scratch up my nicer watch.

    Being very tempted by a riseman at the moment though...

    That's the one I have. Got it last Christmas. Looks like they haven't changed much in 25 years. ;D
    I love this model. It's casual, yet sturdy, and has exactly the features I need: stopwatch, countdown timer, highly customizable alarm (only one though, it could use an extra one or two), and a very informative time screen. I love it.

    G-shock "girl" here ;)

    GWM5600BC-1 which I really like. Don't like plastic bands so this one rocks!
