Watch Accessory Gift Ideas for G-Shock Owners

A G-Shock watch would be the ultimate gift to give to someone special, but if the recipient already has one (or many) there are other items that would make great gifts as well. Here are some accessories that are likely to please any G-Shock owner.

Wooden Watch Case with Glass Top

A great choice for someone who owns a lot of G-Shocks, this affordable wooden case holds 12 watches and has a large glass lid so Tough Solar watches can charge inside of it. The border around the glass is relatively thin and won’t get in the way of the solar charging. Each section has a protective pillow and the case has a felt bottom to prevent it from scratching any surfaces.

USB Solar Watch Charger

Those who work in low-light environments or use their backlights and sensors a lot on their Tough Solar watches may sometimes see their rechargeable battery level drop from high to medium. Instead of leaving the watch outside in the sun or dangerously close to a hot lamp, the CoolFire USB solar watch charger offers a convenient and safe way to fully charge a solar watch quickly with LED lights. It provides a 30,000 lux light output which is similar to direct summer sun and it will not overheat the watch. It includes two soft rubber caps to protect the displays of large and small watches. A USB cable is included but a USB charging adapter is not.

Bullbar Wire Face Protectors for G-Shock

“Bullbars” are wire face protectors that became popular in the ’90s with skateboarders and military personnel. Amazon seller JaysAndKays is the go-to source for aftermarket bullbars these days. JaysAndKays offer bullbars for the following models: DW-5600, DW-6900, GA-100, GA-110, GD-100, GA-120, GD-110, GLS-100, GD-120, G-9100 Gulfman, G-9000 Mudman, and DW-9052. Using bullbars may end up leaving marks on the watch’s case but it’s a trade-off some are willing to take for the extra protection and rugged look.
