G Shock for MTB

Looking to buy a new G Shock for when I'm mountains biking. Wanting a watch that can take a few knocks so thought the G Shock would be ideal (unless somebody can point me to other makes). Problem is there's so many it's hard to choose. Not wanting to spend a fortune as I already have 4 other watches (hard to explaine to the wife why I need so many :? ) so have short listed it to the following. Anybody own any of them and can give a bit of feedback?

Cheers all.

    I have had a G-Shock for about 8 years and it has been a great watch. It has taken a few knocks but still looks good and works faultlessly.

    They are all much the same so get the one you most like the look of.

    I have the 3rd one in all black.... awesome watch...

    looks a bit pricy that website.... bought mine in the US from bloomingdales.... was only $125 ....

    there might be a way to buy direct from the shop and have it shipped .....

    I've got the second one, been through conditions and experiences most watches never will without any problems, this is my third g-shock, never had a problem with any of them, I just tend to use needing a new battery as an excuse for a new one.

    Thanks mate, I'm running out of excuses for buying new watches so may have to use the battery is dead for my next purchase :D

    Nice watch, wanting the analogue hands as well though. Got my short list now, going to have a look at them to narrow it down :?
