    FWIW, I don't have any G-Shocks in the "collection"....but I do have an Ironman.

    It's almost exclusively used for timing my recreational jogging (pronounced with a soft "J").

    Picked up this Ingersoll as a dress watch. Wasn't looking to spend too much and after checking out the Tissot PRC200 I found it to be too small for my liking.

    i love my Ironman watches.... i go through one every 3-5 years depending on what mtn bike crash, dropping it off a cliff, smacking into granite while rock climbing etc incident. but they are light, have good alarms, and i know where every button, light, and other function works... in my sleep :). i've never been into G-Shocks, but with all this recent chatter... maybe i'll check them out!

    It will be a vintage Casio. The early Made In Japan ones are the most desired among collectors.

    Never really owned a decent watch and I remember why now... Was really looking into getting a Tissot Tradition (which I believe is 42mm) but my wrists are so G DAMN tiny! I'm STILL thinking about it, though.

    Questions for you seasoned vets:
    If I were to get a watch with a leather band, where can I take it to get the dual clasps so I don't wear out the leather strap? And how much would a modification like that run me?

    Buy a deployant clasp (many retail sources online) and fit it yourself. Be sure to buy the right width for the buckle end of the strap.

    Thanks Chuckie. What is the general consensus here at SF about deployant clasps? And what about double fold vs single fold?

    Well, it wasn't vintage when I got it ;-)

    I remember seeing For Your Eyes Only in the cinema in '81 and being slightly disappointed that RM wore a Seiko while mine was a Casio (even though I never cared for the particular model i that movie).

    I own a G-Shock and I love it. Would I wear it to work? Of course not. I wear it to the gym when I'm not using a heart rate monitor or any other place that wouldn't be suitable to wear something fragile as a nice watch. Some may argue that you can wear the Explorer II to active things...and yeah, you could, but is it really suitable? My G-Shock isn't shiny, it's not white, and it's not purple...it's a very understated matte black. It's a beater through and through and takes a beating like no other watch.

    I mean, when you're at the gym curling with 160lb dumbbells, you want something that's gonna be able to take the pain!!!! J/k
