I needed a cheap, tough watch for garden work, because I’m not wearing a Apple Watch or any of my three nice watches while I’m dealing with dirt and water and whipping branches and tools and swinging an axe.
So, for £30, I picked up a second-hand G-Shock Watch Men’s G-Rescue Black/Red G-7900-1DR off eBay. It came in a bag with no instructions. Took me a minute to reset the time. I have no idea what the big round thing in the top left corner is. The blue thing in the middle is a tide indicator, according to the internet. I just found what purports to be the operation manual site, but it does not work well. (noting this largely for myself)
All I need to know is this: it works in the wet and in the cold and it’s extremely hard to destroy. No more wrestling my phone out of a secure pocket just to see what the time is. Or carefully working out there with an Apple Watch on that buzzes my wrist every couple of minutes.
