What makes the Casio Rangeman GW-9400-3CR outsell its rival in the same price range? After reading so many buyers reviews about this watch, I realized that what people choice most is its military appearance, specially the olive drab color. It’s reminiscent of the World-War green that I have seen in movies and video games. This really is a large plus! Since the market is now full of digital tactical watches with disguise patterns or black color, a classic green piece is deliberated a desirable rarity.
55mm case size, 17mm thickness – It’s not a small watch by any means
Yes, this watch is just for those who like oversized timepieces. The buttons’ guards not only crucially increase the case diameter and thickness, but also add much to the already-sturdy appearance of this watch. Despite its large size, the GW-9400-3CR is not uneasy to wear all day long, because it’s rather lightweight, just 93g totally. The tough design of the watch is enough to give you dependence and unstoppable feel, heaviness just does no nice to wearers in tactical situations.
Metal buttons & rivets – What I like most about this watch’s design, but they also cause some inconvieniences
What make the Rangeman series look various to other G Shock models are the stainless steel details on the case and dial. Do you agree with me that no matter how well a resin watch is make, some bodies just feel it’s inexpensive simply because of its material. Resin is an surprisingly durable material which is most worthy with tactical watches, but it doesn’t look as cool as metal. So to get the good of both world, Casio design the Rangeman GW-9400-3CR with a resin body and a few stainless steel details on it. accurate combination
Comfortable resin band & stainless steel buckle, band-keeper
The band is very suitable on the wrist. The case-band transition is also very smooth, so the 22mm strap doesn’t look too little for this 55mm watch.
The band keeper is build of stainless steel instead of resin, so it’s very easy to heap scratches overtime. However, I think this is not a large deal since the G Shock is designed to be a beater watch. This metal keeper really adds a focus of interest to the band. As I said above, well-designed metal details really make a resin watch look cooler.
In a word, the Casio G Shock Rangeman GW-9400-3CR is a tough military-style watch, with classic green color scheme that is nicely distinct from dozens of digital tactical watches out there.
