Metal Or Resin?
Interested as to the general opinion on here, do people prefer metal cased g-shocks or resin cased g-shocks. I know some are metal and resin but let's have no fence sitting here

It depends on the model obviously but we're going to get better longevity and case resilience with a metal case. There are of course arguments to say that a resin cased watch would respond to certain types of shock better than metal, but taking the original 10x10x10 design premise, in the real world a G of either kind is going to survive what the owner may not.
Having said that I prefer the heft of a metal case, when I can find or afford them.

Interesting points dkpw. Have to say i genereally prefer the resin G-Shocks, for no other reason than the fact in my mind that's what a G-Shock should be clothed in. Suppose it's due to the early Gs being generally resin.
Would agree the metal is perhaps more practical on the durability stakes, as numerous crumbled bezels would attest to.
Guess the resin is also generally lighter and more comfortable. So used to wearing a resin G it seems unusual when I wear something like my stainless seiko diver.
Plus I've yet to find a metal G I really like....

Not a huge number of votes but looks like metal is streets ahead. Interesting because for me at least G-Shock is synomous with resin...

I only like resin G's metal ones just seem wrong. Not to say I won't own one at some point but for now 40+ G's and all resinIt's a G thing

But sean is right (I think) when it comes to froggies and the like where a titanium body is barely concealed beneath an off-the-shoulder resin bezel. I would certainly class those as metal resin hybrids. If you consider the bezel as decoration then frogs are definitely metal, just less so than those Gs with metal body and stainless bands
