G-Shock GD-120 Military Style Watch [Review]

G-Shock GD-120 Military Style Watch

Review of the G-Shock GD-120

I have had the G-Shock GD-120 Military style watch for about 3 months now and love it.

It is a great overall watch.

I have used it and abused it and it still works perfectly fine.

When I first moved to Texas, I did a lot of hard labor and construction. I was lifting heavy supplies, doing demolition, and scratching the damn thing on all types of surfaces.

As I type, I’m still wearing it and it looks fine. No signs of wear and tear.

Buy it on Amazon.

Look and Feel

The look of it is rugged and masculine. It has a military feel to it as well.

The light on it isn’t too bright which is good for concealment/stealth.

I believe that the manufacturers had military personnel in mind while designing the watch as even the bright light button only flashed for a quick 1.5 seconds or so (once again, seems optimized to provide maximum stealth).

An Amazon review says:

“I got this watch as a Christmas gift over 2 years ago and has held up well since. I am a Career Fireman and wear the watch at work. It gets beat up frequently there. I am also quite active in hiking, kayaking, longboarding, and so on. The watch has never missed a beat. It’s been dropped, smacked off stuff, submerged, almost frozen in the winter and just keeps on ticking. It’s a great watch and is as rugged as they come.” – Robert J Nagle

Good for those who sport a rugged style

The watch looks cool and suits my rakish/rugged style.

I like it especially at the gym as it allows me to time my rest-periods without having to check my phone.

Now I just go to the gym with my watch and my training notebook. I leave my phone in my backpack.

No phones = no distractions = good/focused workout.

Not too Bulky

It’s also not too big or bulky like some watches I’ve seen making the person look a bit goofy.

This is good for any guy who lives a physical lifestyle whether that’s because he does MMA, boxing, weight-lifting, fire-fighting, active-duty military, construction, or just feels himself to be an all-around rugged individual.

Great for Young Guys on a Budget

This watch is great for young rugged guys on a budget as it usually goes for around $67 or so.

If you’re a young masculine guy on a budget that is looking for a cool, rugged, and durable watch, look no further, the G-Shock GD-120 is your match.
