Funny im sorta getting the ‘Vintage digital’ vibe
"Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything's OK,
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
'Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black."

Hard to decide. There is one designed by Pininfarina with brake cables in the strap but the one I wear the most is this one:

Try the watch on a brown strap!
Thanks!

I have a drawer full on nothing but straps and bracelets. Even the canvas strap it comes with is very nice but it is leather lined. I have never found leather to be particularly comfortable. I love the look of leather with just about any watch I just generally find any other option more comfortable and hygienic.

My current favorite is this elastic with it.

This thread actually reminded me I needed to finish going through my G Shocks so I can give the ones I no longer wear to my son since he enjoys them. I had showed him a write up about watches certified for use in space...

Then gave him both a G Shock 5600 and 6900. I still have a modded 5600 I need to give him...
Image
The only two I am keeping are a JDM Foxfire DW5600 just because it was something I had wanted for a long time...
Image
I am keeping the positive display GD350 on the right because it was a gift from my gf. The negative display on the left was the last G Shock I wore before I retired from my previous job. It is going to my son.

Here i though

1) practical durable watch that wasnt like a brick
2) normal proportions that could be worn under a cuff
3) beater, not ostentatious, etc

Then i see this...
