I was a bit worried about the strap not being durable but seeing it in person proved otherwise. I also like that this specific model's strap is wider than the typical g-shock watch strap. I also have the yellow/dark gray version and the pictures you see of these models on the internet do not do them justice. They are very handsome in person. One more thing that I like about the 100 series is that they are more easy to read compared to the other series in the G-Shock line.
