With full 200M WR, Shock Resistant, 24Hr stopwatch and countdown timer, standard issue never looked this good. Black resin band digital watch with black face.
Better than advertised
This watch and I have been through it all. I picked one up about 5 years ago when I was on my first deployment (I was in the navy). I have been wearing the watch almost daily since then, it's my most prized possession. Surprisingly- I have not yet had to change the battery on it.
Casio G-shock DW9052
The watch is very nice for the low price I was lucky enough to get it at. Ordering and shipping went very well. It was packaged good well protected. Over all it was a good experience. I WILL continue to do more business with them. Tommy
Excellent watch, but it died on me...

So I purchased this G-shock model back in August of 2008. I had been wearing the exact same model for over 10 years. Not having any major problems, other than needing to change the battery 3 times over this period (and with it coming closer to needing a battery change), I opted to just buy a new one. It seems like this watch is hit-or-miss. It can be very, very durable or just die on you. I was doing laundry today, and it looks like the static electricity from handling the clothes out of the drier has just went and killed it! I was absolutely shocked, seeing as how it's called a G-SHOCK and all; and not having any problems with my old watch. I wear this all day every day, and to be done in by LAUNDRY is just sad. Obviously, since I've been wearing this for almost half my life, I have been generally pleased with it. And I've gone back to my original one for the time being. I may end up just buying a third...because I do really like this watch. General warnings/tips: -Try not to use the backlight - ever; it'll absolutely destroy your battery life. When I first got mine I used it all the time, and in a few months it was dead. The next time I got my battery changed - I didn't use it at all and it lasted for about 3 years. -I didn't realize that if you get the battery changed, the waterseal is gone. Found out the hard way while swimming at a public pool.
Really Nice Watch!!!!

You can't beat the price on this watch, its an awesome price for an awesome watch. I had this watch in the past and it witheld everything I put it through. Police academy, working out, saltwater, showering with it, and almost every day use. I would wear it every day 24/7, I even slept with it. The only reason I'm ordering a new one is because I decided to change the battery on the watch my self and I did't properly install the battery, and I didn't put the o ring on right to seal the watch from water damage, and what ended happening was water got in it when I went in the pool and fryed the watch. So my ADVICE is to take the watch to a professional jewerly shop to replace your battery. Other then that, this watch is AWESOME!!! YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!!

I purchased this Casio G-Shock for my husband's birthday and he loved it. It is such a good quality for a great price. He especially liked the lighted face for viewing in the dark. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a sturdy watch at a great price.
Got this watch for my boyfriend for his army basic training grad present, I wanted to get him one that he could use through his special forces training. He loves it, it's very durable! He wears it basically everywhere and can wear it during training and working out!
Great watch, but. . .

I'm a building contractor who's been wearing G-shocks since 1986. I've probably gone through five of them. With the earlier models I was always having to replace the watch band because I brutalized them so badly on the jobsite. The most recent one I bought was the DW9052. Good watch and the band lasted very well, but the battery is starting to go so I've ordered a new Gulfman. The problem with the DW9052 watch is that the battery is only rated for two years. G-shocks in general are the sturdiest watches ever built. I've beaten the hell out of mine for over 20 years. To borrow a phrase from another manufacturer, "they take a lickin and keep on tickin." One more thing: if a G-shock is your every day watch and you own a dress watch as well, be careful when you wear the dress watch. They aren't as forgiving as G-shocks. You forget you are wearing them and end up going body surfing or something. It's happened twice to me while on vacation. I destroyed a Universal Geneve that my wife bought me in Singapore and nearly ruined a Tissot. My wife was not amused.
My husband LOOOOVES this!!!

When my husband was leaving for bootcamp we bought him this watch. He needed something rugged, that could take a beating, and still keep ticking. Well, that is exactly what we got. He went through Basic and is now in OCS and this watch is still going. As a matter of fact, it still looks new and everything still works. We will be buying another, without a doubt, if this one ever fails.
Tough watch for a not so tough price
Reviewer: David Olszewski "DMann"
I bought this watch for work because I needed something rugged that will take alot of abuse. In my profession I'm constantly fighting and wrestling with people and I needed a watch that wouldn't just break off. I have had this watch for nearly two months and I'm extremely pleased with it's durability and comfort. It has every possible function you would need for everyday life, ie. stopwatch, alarm, countdown timer. My favorite option is the dual time/date display on the main watch screen because I always need to quickly access date/time. If your looking for a tough watch at a decent price you can't go wrong with this one.
