G Shock Mudman G9000-1V

Casio G-Shock Quartz Watch with Resin Strap, Black, 18 (Model: G9000-1V)

This list of G Shock watches for military is certainly not complete without mention the classic Mudman. Designed to take G shocks standard water and shock proofing to the next level, the Mudman has further mud resistance (so keeps out the gunk) and is also low-temperature resistant too. So, all in all a pretty bullet-proof watch!

The display is super-easy to read with a clear digital display. It is also clearly backlight and has afterglow built-in, which means it lights up and then stays on for a preset amount of time (which you can change).

There are many of the usual functions in a great watch such as: 29 time zones (48 cities), daylight saving on/off, 1/100 second stopwatch, countdown timer, four alarms, hourly signal, auto calendar and 12/24 hour time.

Specifications

  • Mud Resistant
  • Quartz analog movement
  • Mineral crystal
  • Resin case and band
  • Bright backlight, 29 time zones (48 cities), daylight saving on/off, 1/100 second stopwatch, countdown timerfour alarms, hourly signal, auto calendar and 12/24 hour time.

Casio G-SHOCK GA 100-1A1 Military Series

Casio G-Shock GA-1100 Gravitymaster Stylish Watch - Blue / One Size

This G Shock is designed for the military. It is rugged, waterproof and shock-resistant, as you would expect from any G-Shock watch for military.

The standard on G Shocks is water resistance to 200m, which means you can definitely use them diving, swimming, and even in the mud. It also comes with a strong backlight LED which helps in low-light or darkness, something that you will definitely find handy in the field.

As you would expect, there is also a wide range of functions including a stopwatch, and countdown timer. If you are traveling then there is also 29 zone world time, as well as 5 alarms, and an automatic calendar.

The only downside of this G-Shock watch is that although it is a “black-out” style watch, it is super hard to read in the dark, and is still highly reflective because of the glass. However, if you just want that cool dark look, then this is the way to go.

Specifications

  • Black-out Watch
  • Quartz analog movement
  • Mineral crystal
  • Plastic case with silicone band
  • Bright backlight, stopwatch, countdown timer, 29 zone world time, 5 alarms, automatic calendar
  • Water resistant to 200m (660ft)
  • Case size: 55 x 10mm

Casio Men's XL Series (GA-700UC-8ACR)

Casio Men's XL Series G-Shock Quartz 200M WR Shock Resistant Resin Color: Matte Grey (Model GA-700UC-8ACR)

If you want something a little simpler, but still that matte gray or black of a G Shock watch for military, then this model for you. It actually comes in 5 different colors, although most go for the black or gray. Being the XL range, this is definitely for those with big wrists. The case measure 53mm across, which is close enough to 2 inches.

In terms of functionality, this G Shock does not have those outdoorsman functions of many of the models, but it tells the time in digital and analog and has various alarms and a stopwatch, which is enough for most.

Where this watch falls short for some is the lack of great illumination. Sure, it has a backlight, but it only lights up a portion of the screen (a benefit for some wanting less illumination). It’s up to you whether this is a deal-breaker?

 

 

Specifications

  • XL Size G Shock
  • Digital display
  • Mineral Crystal
  • Water-resistant to 200m (660ft)
  • Functions: Backlight, alarm, stopwatch
  • Case size: 53 x 16.7 mm

Best In Darkness

G-SHOCK Men's GD 350

Casio Men's GD350-1B G Shock Black Watch

Continuing on with the “black-out” style G Shock watches for military, this is another simple one that has a bit of a twist. It only has a digital display, which is often just way easier, but on top of that it is also a negative display that many find easier to read. In case you get into low-light or even darkness, the super illuminator backlight has your back too!

Of course, it’s also shock-resistant, 200m water-resistant, and will last you through basic training and even longer. And on top of all that, this military watch comes with a 35 time-zones, an automatic calendar (until 2099) both a flashing backlight and vibration alarm, as well as stopwatch and countdown timer.

Specifications

  • Quartz analog movement
  • Mineral crystal
  • Resin case and band

The G-Shock Rangeman is a classic for those looking for a range of military/survival features in a watch.

Like all other G-Shock military watches it’s 200m water resistant and shock resistant, so it will last. Additionally, it’s also mud resistant around the case and buttons. This means they are sealed to prevent mud, dirt, and dust from getting in. So, if you want your watch to last through all those gnarly situations, then this is a worthwhile purchase.

There is also a massive list of functions that are included. Of course, you get a stopwatch, countdown and alarms, but this military G Shock takes things a step further!

It has multi band 6 atomic timekeeping which means it’s always exactly up to date. This G-Shock Rangeman watch has Tough Solar, so it charges on the go. No more worrying about a new battery every few years, or when you least expect it

Casio G-Shock GA100L Military Watch

G-Shock GA-1000L Beige

This G Shock military watch is for those of you who are not into “black” but prefer more of a military/camo color.

It is very standard when it comes to G Shocks, with the usual 200m water resistance, and built-in shock-resistance. Alarms, countdown and stopwatch comes standard. But it also has built-in Magnetic Resistance, which may or may not be important to you. Additionally, it is also solar-powered, using Casio’s Tough Solar and auto-updated time using their Multi Band 6 technology.

The illumination is ok, lighting up only the analog part of the watch, and some may find the analog-digital combo more annoying than useful (the analog covers the digital during some portions of every hour).

Specifications

  • Camo colored
  • Digital display
  • Mineral Crystal
  • ISO 764 Class Magnetic Resistance
  • Resin plastic band and case
  • Water resistant to 200 meters (660ft)
  • Case size: 46 x 14.5mm

On The Water

G Shock Gulfmaster GN-1000

G-SHOCK [Casio] CASIO Watch GULFMASTER GN-1000-1AJF Men's

If you want a G Shock Military watch that also has features for water-lovers, the Gulfmaster GN-1000 is worth considering. It also has a dual analog digital display like many G Shocks, but it’s the extra features you might be most interested in.

It comes with a Twin Sensor (compass and thermometer) along with bearing memory. There is also a tide graph and moon age graph, which are helpful for those spending time on the water.

Of course, it also comes with the standard 200m water resistant, shock resistance and other digital watch functions we all know and love (timer, stopwatch, alarms etc).

Specifications

  • Special Functions: Tide graph and moon age graph, bearing memory, compass, thermometer
  • Digital display
  • Mineral Crystal
  • Resin plastic band and case
  • Water resistant to 200 meters (660ft)
  • Case size: 50.5 x 16 mm

G Shock GD-400-1CR

Casio Men's G-Shock GD400-1CR Black Resin Sport Watch

Although all military G-Shock watches come with shock resistance, they do not all have extra protection. So, if you want even more, then this model with protection bars is right up your alley!

In terms of style, it is also quite unique with the predominantly black watch with red accents all over. This will certainly stand out from the crowd, no matter where you hang out.

In terms of functions, there is nothing special on this watch (aside from the extra protection). It comes with LED Backlight, Auto Light switch, hourly time signal, countdown timer, World Time, Daylight saving on/off, and 5 Daily Alarms. Not bad when you think about it, but no additional features to speak of

Specifications

  • Extra protection bars on face
  • Digital display
  • Mineral Crystal
  • Resin plastic band and case
  • Water resistant to 200 meters (660ft)
  • Case size: 49.7 x 16.6 mm

Casio G Shock DW5600E-1V Classic

Casio Men's G-Shock Quartz Watch with Resin Strap, Black, 20 (Model: DW5600E-1V)

This G Shock DW5600E is the absolute classic retro Casio G Shock that you might remember from the 90s! It is still quite a beast in terms of shock and water resistance, but it does not quite have the modern G Shock look.

It is certainly a cheaper option than many of those above, so you can easily replace it if it happens to go through more than it can handle.

The functions include the standard of course: multi-function alarm, 1/100-second stopwatch, countdown timer, hourly time signal, auto calendar, and 12- and 24-hour formats.

All in all, a classic worthy of anyone who wants a blast from the past!

Specifications

  • Classic Casio look
  • Digital watch
  • Mineral crystal window
  • Resin case and band
  • Water-resistant to 200m (600ft)
  • Case size: 45 x 15mm
