+1 I have the very same model
I like simple watches. I'm not a fan of the sine wave looking feature and the muliple circular gauges on many G shocks. Gimme the time and date in big numbers, a backlight, a decent strap, and an alarm in a rugged case and I'm happy. A stock photo of my current watch. The classic DW5600E-1V. Around $40+. I might go to a more rugged band in the future.

How do you like it? I really like the watch, except for one thing:
The back light needs to illuminate the entire watch face; or the glow-in-the-dark hands need to glow for a longer period of time.When in bed, and I wake up, the GID charge has already depleted so then I hit the button for the backlight instead. Normally not a big deal, but I keep the LED display in Date mode. So I have to switch modes to get back to the time display then hit the light again.
One more thing, and I'm sure it's probably just me. Whenever it's dark and I look at my watch, it always seems to be at the 30 minute mark, consequently blocking part of the LED display.
Other than that, it's been a great watch. I like analog watches, and it's nice to have the LED to display the date or show the time in 24 hour format. I would like to purchase an all digital model, to wear when I know I will be out doing activities in the dark. However, it's very hard for me to justify buying a second watch when this one works great.
I agree the back light would be better if it Illuminated the whole watch face I don't take mine to bed so can't comment on the GID charge and I also can't say I have noticed the 30 minute mark problem so that maybe is just you .
I also have a non G Shock WaveCeptor Illuminator which is all digital so I sort of have the best of both worlds
+1 on the 9300 Mudman. I have the Japan Edition with Multiband and Carbon Fiber tho

CASIO GSHOCK XL IS A GOOD ONE.
Gshock XL is a darn good one. I have one and I like it very much!
I'm loving this one:
Sorry guys, haven't been here in awhile to see the question...
Model is GW-4000-1A
Also regarding what to do since you have only two wrists...two of my older G's ride on the spokes of my steering wheel
Oh yeah that is a sweet one. The green colour version is cool too!

I like the MudMan, very nice color.
It is my favorite and I think the negative display on gshocks add a lot to the aesthetic appeal of them.
There's some lovely 9300's out there...
I like the MTG-900 for maximizing the data to my face...day, date and time without having to count little segments. It's not very "sexy" though
Best regards, Hawk
*sigh* Thanks to this thread, I just pulled the trigger on a G9000MS-1CR. My wrist loves you all, and my wallet hates you all.
What else does this watch do?
