Watch recommendations
Need some advise guys...
lookin to buy a new watch, currently have an Analog Freestyle i wear casual and to the lake and a Blue Nixon Rubber player I wear when I need to look fly ;)

Would like to get something to where casual and to the lake, something thats Tough.

I was sold on the blue G-Shock Riseman
But right before I pulled the trigger I figured out that it is not the one that automatically syncs up with the atomic clock. I can get a black one that does sync up (not quite as cool/unique) but still sick because it has altimeter, barometer, and temp...plus the thing is tough as all hell.

Any other recommendations? I have a small wrist so Id like to keep it kinda small to medium face size.

will do. got a sick pair of DC's last week. Love whiskey haha. they used to have much better stuff a few years back.

I think im gonna go with the G shock riseman, either the BLUE without atomic clock sync or the BLACK one with the atomic clock sync.

Think it matters if my watch auto syncs with the atomic clock so its always perfect?

Ended up getting that blue casio G shock Riseman....Its freakin awesome. Only issue, when you dive in at the lake and swim deep, it makes the barometer read incorrectly untill it re adjusts itself (makes sense since the pressure would be much greater)
all in all, i dig it, and wasnt too expensive.

I just kinda went thru this myself. Found I've been wearing my workout watches more than anything. Polar and Nike watches don't cut it for a night out or at work some of the time, so I've ordered a Panerai Luminor Marina for nicer occasions and a Nixon Revolver for the rest of the time. Never heard of Nixon until there was an other thread here with them listed. Really dig on a lot of their styles. Some of the Rockwell's look killer too. But on the ones I like of their's, I don't like how prominent the logo is.
