OVERVIEW

When you talk about G-Shock, you talk about attractive design, value for money, functionality, durability, and of course, its resistance to shock and that makes it pretty much indestructible, which is really what it’s famous for. G-shock has been around since 1983,  and since then, not many brands or watches could boast the same level of durability for the price tag. The ones that could offer the same level of durability are often a lot more expensive than the G-shock. That is why the G-shock has amassed a large number of fans around the world – and collaborations with other companies like Stussy, Xlarge and Coca-cola only make these watches more interesting and loved by fans.

Introducing the amazing Casio Men’s GWX8900B-7 G-Shock Tough Solar Multi-Band Atomic Watch – an attractive black and white watch featuring tide graph and moon data, multi-band 6 atomic keeping, solar powered, 200m water resistance and shock resistance. When you get a combination like this, that means you will never ever need to adjust your time, and also never have to change your batteries ever again. This is truly a self-sustaining watch which will require minimal maintenance from its owner (click here to check availability and price).

Other features of this watch include the following:

  • World Time.
  • 4 daily alarms and 1 snooze alarm
  • 1/100 second stopwatch
  • Countdown timer
  • Full auto calendar (pre-programmed until the year 2099)
  • Battery power indicator
  • Power saving function
  • Approximately 10 months of battery life on full charge without further exposure to light.

In general, this watch is well-accepted by its owners. Currently rated at 4.5 out of 5 stars from 92 reviews, the watch can easily be one of the best watches for men on the market, given its price tag, design, functions and durability.

For those who are concerned about its visibility at night, this watch utilizes a Super Luminous LED backlight and not the traditional EL backlight. Besides that, this watch has an auto-illumination feature that lights up the watch when you tilt the watch to look at the time. However, this could cause some unnecessary battery drain for some owners who do not appreciate the feature.

“I love how it can go a full 10 months without any solar charge & its simple features like tide graph & moon phases”

“You dont need to fiddle with the settings or read through papers of manuel just to figure out how this thing works, it does it for you already. Its literally a self sustaining watching, atomic timing (auto adjusting for daylight saving and moving to different time zones) and solar powered (you dont have to change the batteries, it recharges by sunlight how cool is that).”

“A nice – looking piece of men’s jewelry at a reasonable price. Not quite what you’d call elegant, but considering the overpricing of quartz dress watches in general, hard to do much better for the money. Accurate but not “precise”
