If you play/work kind of rough and don't want to wear anything of significant value, I find the G to be my prefered choice. I tried a few other brands including Suuntu but for me the G's held up the best. black, white and od green.

As indicated in past posts you'd be surprised how many would prefer a Suuntu or a Luminox or a Tissot etc. Many aren't into the "plastic" look or want more functions. As for Invicta they are big time FAIL although I wouldn't mind thrashing one.....with a hammer. :)

Ya, Nixon...a lot of people also prefer a thrasher with more "style" than a standard G.

Since 1853, Tissot is a great little watch with much much history and experience behind it.

Its an amazing watch


really? how aggressive are you with that watch? lol
way way way way too hard on it. i smashed it once swinging doing tower work. it hit a foot rung and just shattered it. it was also about -20f out as well. the other time i was doing a 10 foot acid drop in, and fell and just shattered it. also cracked my helmet too. just to give you an idea how hard i hit.

^See now those are legit Thrashin activities. One of my fav's is dirt bike riding, and our motto is, if you didn't crash, you weren't going fast enough.

I have the orange G for some play...usually the boat.

I also have a $40 timex ironman for activities that I know will bang up the old timepiece.

Speaking of Invicta I would like to call the home shopping network one day when they are selling Invicta and tell them there watches are garbage but in a sweet kind of old man type of voice.
