I've been wearing a Casio Gshock MT-G for about 10 years.  Still runs good, but lost a button cover awhile back and I forsee it becoming useable.  Anything out there that is similar?  Or when I replace this one do I just get another?  Solar powered, atomic time, digital readout, ect.

This is for everyday wear.  Work, gardening, cutting wood, ect.

What says the hive.

I got this one last year after wearing a different G-Shock for 10 years prior.
It ran me about $100

G-Shock. Indestructibility at a small price.

This. I have 2 Gshocks and a Citizen, that's it. The Citizen is only for when I'm dressing up, other than that, I always have a Gshock on, and have for 7+ years..

I'm not a fan of digital or even quartz watches myself. I know they have a use, but I just dig mechanical watches...

...I'm also not a fan of pocket protectors, short sleeved dress shirts or premature ejaculation either



J/K Guys



But, OP, you COULD actually buy an automatic mechanical watch for ~$100 It won't tell you your altitude or balance your checkbook, but it will last for a LONG time, never need batteries, and contain hundreds of intricate little parts that work togetgher perfectly as the result of centuries of engineering.



Check some out:

Invicta makes some decent mechanicals for that price. GShock otherwise.

I buy Fossil. Sometimes they are on sale at Macy's which makes them a great buy.

I wear my G-Shock daily and it goes through alot of abuse.

I have a Fossil watch that I wear on weekends.

I also have an Invecta that I really like, but its got more of a flash factor to it. I wear it when ever my wife forces me to go out for fancy dinners and such.
