Casio G-Shock GA - 100MC - 1 AER review

I was looking for a G-Shock with an analogue dial and came across this model on Lazada. What makes this watch unique from other G-Shocks is the military stripped nylon webbing. There are a few other models in the GA100MC Military Cloth series with unique colour combinations but I prefer the understated colours of the GA - 100MC - 1AER.

In keeping with the military theme, the watch features reverse LCD display on a black face. It looks nice but makes it a bit hard to read in bad light and 12/24 hour formats.

Like other G-Shocks, the watch is shock resistant and water resistant to 200m. Other unique features include magnetic resistance, 48-city World Time, 1/1000th sec. stopwatch with speed indicator (not sure whether I would ever require that type of accuracy) and auto LED lights.

Thought it would be heavy but it is not too bad at 75gms. I was also a bit worried that the watch would look too big on my wrist (dimensions of the watch: 55 × 51.2 × 16.9 mm) but it doesn't look too bad. I like the big oversized buttons which is easier to use as compared to the tiny ones on my old Casio G-Shock DW-5600EG-9.

I really like this watch and it has become my daily wear - I even wear it to office.
