I've had a few G-Shocks over the years but this is by far the best. It feels well made, with its matt black finish and double clasp buckle. It fits nicely on my small wrist - on some watches the strap is too long but this is just right.
It has great minimal styling. Its unfussy design is just what I was looking for. I do a lot of running and swimming, so it's great for both of those. The easy to use front button for the light is a good feature too.
The added bonus of solar power means I don't have to worry about expensive battery replacement.
A really nice watch and this site has the best price too!

This is my second g-shock
It's unbreackable I work on construction sites as an electrician and I have to push my hand into all sorts of openings an the watch is still working as it was when I bought it.
Glass has no scratches at all.
Strap is showing some cracks but is still strong.
The earlier g-shock had the same strap problem. Strap lasted 4 years an you can not replace it, that is the down site of it.
In the family we have 5 g-shocks and everyone is happy, so I give it 10 out of 10

Really good service. Found the watch cheaper on this site than anywhere else. Quick delivery and product as promised. The watch was a leaving present for a lad at work and he was made up with it. Would definitely recommend watches2u.com and will be using them in the future.
G Shock GR8900A-IER
I am a great fan of G-Shock for ages, and got this as a surprise gift from my wife on my birthday
The watch is predominantly masculine as the product image, meant for tough guys and rough use. G shock is a part of a growing macho cult like Harleys and Bullets. Let me try to point out the pros and cons
1. Sturdy as the brand image.
2. Suitable for rough use in tough conditions
3. Brand image is great and product support from Casio is reasonable.
4. I loved the silent colour tone of my black dial without any vibrant colours. But for those who is colourful, there are flurescent options.
5. The watch is light weight when compared to the size. With a big standard dial to make things clear.
6. Water resistent. My previous Gshock survived many tropical monsoons and wet outdoors.
7. Strap is great with anti skid design. Your watch will not bother you.
8. A tough solar without botheration of battery changing. Afterall being solar is being eco friendly.
9. Reasonable price. When compared this model is a bargain.
1. This is a basic tough solar with basic functionality. I always choose gadgets based on freequency of regular use. I use to go out in rain, drive long in various climate conditions. Even though this is basic this was what I was looking for.
2. If given a chance I might have prefered a dual dial with one analogue face. I can still view two time zones in single display without pressing buttons. So I am not complaining.
Been looking for a Solar G-Shock for a while before I got recommended Watches2U by a friend.
Best price on the internet and delivered within 2 days.

Purchased for my son who is a carpenter and needs a robust practical watch. Appeared perfectly suited to requirements.
Really really impressed with this watch. I was a bit nervous ordering it, as it's marketed as a men's watch and I'm female, but it looks just fine on my wrist. Incredibly easy to set up and I'm very impressed with the features it has. The date is in American format (11-29) rather than British (29-11-16) but that doesn't bother me. Happy that's its solar powered, meaning I won't ever have to worry about breaking the waterproof seal to change a battery.
I think this watch is beautifully designed and looks very sleek in matte black. It feels very sturdy, so will be prefect in my busy job as a dolphin trainer. Particularly interested to test the waterproof feature.
Also, this was my first time ordering from Watches2U and I'm so pleased. The service has been fantastic and delivery was so speedy! Thank you!
What I like;
It looks great, the black face is different but surprisingly easy to read and adds to its sleekness.
Being solar powered.
It has simple functionality without unnecessary functions that you never use but just complicate the instructions, I travel a lot so the world time function makes life a lot easier
Also Watches2U customer service, I inadvertently ordered 2 watches and they accepted & refunded the error straight away.
What I don’t like;
Just be aware its large, especially at the side. I realise that it needs the bulkiness for protection but the 2 bulkheads at 3 & 9 o’clock give it a large diameter, 5cm. As a result it does dig into the top of my hand which has taken some getting use to.
My 4th Gshock after my last one battery went and Casio wanted a lot of money to replace the battery. In my wisdom I went to a high street watch repairer and he basically broke it, never again. So this time I went for a watch which didn't need a battery and here we are.
I like the easy access light button, the solar option. its chunky and not in your face. Only negative are the numbers are tricky to read in certain light conditions.
My Son loves it.
Absolutely great watch, what you see is what you get and more, lots of options which can prove to be tricky but really useful when you get familiar, defininately worth a buy, only downfall is the day of the week is 1 day behind and I can't change it, any advice?
This watch is awesome, functional, big and good looking. Does exactly what it is designed to do and can wear it for both business/leisure and sporting purchase. The communication and speed of dispatch from watches2u was fantastic and havevalreadybrecomemnded this watch and watches2u to family and friends.
Great watch. Looks great in black with the black face. I've had no problems reading the time in bright sunlight.its nice and chunky and looks good on the wrist. I'm very pleased with the purchase and with the service.
Great for everyday use. Very well-built, high quality feel. I would recommend
