I've had good luck with a G-Shock 3050 for almost six years now. The thing is indestructible as far as the wear and tear I put on it. I've hit the crystal pretty hard some times and immediately thought, "Ah crap, I need a new watch", then I looked at it and not even a scratch. The thing is solar powered and I haven't had to change the battery yet.
