Hi Folks,

For folks who don't peruse g-shock specific forums, I wanted to share some of my favorite G shocks in "real life" military photos that I've posted elsewhere. Just G shocks going to work!!!
MODs- I've read the forum rules....and I always defer to your judgement for appropriateness of posts. Please do not hesitate to delete inappropriate pics.

Anyhows, here are a few....I will post more.

Its great to hear refreshing g-shock discussion here!!!! Enjoyable discussions that can only add to the cool factor here O0

First I begin with a offering to seiko and citizen gods.

Considering the context of your photos, you've really offered up an excellent display of how these rugged CASIO's get used. If we were to look hard, I imagine we would also find a lot of TIMEX Ironman watches out there too. In sailing races, there are all kinds of mega-expensive timer watches you can buy, but the majority are G's and Ironman digitals.

Nice post. 8)
Love seeing watches out in the wild. :)

Its nice to see Casio's and them Seiko/Citizens at work. Many city slickers will see g-shocks as more of a fashion/trend watch, but you've showed how much of a workhorse and tool type watch they really can be.

I think its COOL to have a TOOL. ;)

Thanks for the nice pics.
Dave.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawesome post! Fantastic, really!!! Congratulations, man! Posts like this give me some itches to go buy more G's!!!

I'd love to see similar posts showing 6309s, Arnies and tunas "in the field". And I know for a fact that aqualands classic CO22 were issued for military ops teams for around the world armies. I'd also love to see them being worn during ops....these are the posts I like, and the reason I fell in love for diving watches.

Thank you very much for this post, brother!
Regards,
CHRIS

Thanks! More pics to come....

Here is one vintage 6309 pic...

".....a member of the test parachute squadron at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., is treated for a broken thigh bone by fellow members and pararescueman, after his test parachute malfunctioned and wrapped around his face during descent at the Flight Test Center, Edwards Air Force Base, Calif. The smaller reserve parachute caused (him) to descend faster than normal and, with his vision obscured by the test chute, was unable to anticipate the impact with the ground."
