Back to your question a few posts back Misfit, I think Ball watches are good value for money, though I don't own one...yet. They make great sports wathces IMO and the tritium tubes are one of a kind. They tend to be chunky though especially the chronographs due to the additional clearance needed for the multi-layered tubes.

Being G-Shock, it shouldn't be that expensive.

The MSRP is GBP500 according to the website, very pricey indeed for a G-Shock,

Been wanting one since my student days. But the price goes up faster than my salary and the waiting list never shortens.

Post some pictures when you do buy one. I like the Engineer Master series, being trained in engineering (though I'm no longer in the field).
