    GD-X6900LG-8DR

    I am quite happy/impressed with it
    Color is as Kev55 had already told me...a rather light gray more than pure white
    which I think goes very nicely with the mottled silver face plate

    This Will be #6 gdx ...but no room in box already
    I need to get another...Soon I can do a GD-X only box

    Thank You Kawei

    You know what I would really like in color is a DW6900 or GDX6900
    in Rescue Orange I think that would be really nice & hope G does one
    someday

    I know somewhere in this thread Kev55 posted a Red Heather GD-X with Black resin he did

    I saw this pic on one of our groups & thought Kev might like to see it with the lettering colored in with red also

    ....like it, very sweet. That's one mod i haven't attempted - changing letter color, but i'm sorely tempted.

    Re: Another counting thread - this time GD-X6900 (6930)

    All these great photos have me considering getting one as well. I do have questions about the way this wears that I hope WUS members can help

    I have the regular DW-6900 and find it to not be a good fit due to the lug designs. Even though the DW-6900 is smaller than my GW-9400, the DW-6900 doesn't fit as well due to lug designs that jut out away from the case, causing a gap between the band and my wrist. What I'd like to know is whether the GD-X6900 has the same issue, or does the different lug design give it a better fit?

    For reference, my wrist is 6.75", and the lug design of the DW-6900 creates this space between my wrist and the strap that less of an issue on any other Gs I have, including the GWF-1000, which has a slight gap, but a smaller one

    Thanks!

    Hi Aalin

    My wrist is same as yours 6.75

    I wear both the DW6900's & the GDX6900's

    I am not positive I am understanding but if your asking about space between wrist & edges of watch top & bottom lugs where strap attaches
    I think it is about the same? Not positive but I see the same gap on DW,GDX,GA & GD's I own

    I do not feel it per se' so never thought it a problem
    Here is a pic of a GDX I am wearing today if it helps

    As I said I am 6.75" wrist & do not wear watches very tight. I have 6 holes remaining un-used outwards .. end of strap..or to say I am wearing it on the 5th hole from watch side hahah hard to describe that eh? :)
    Probably best thing for you is stop in a store & try one just in case?

    Anyway a pic for you

    Hi flying, thanks for your response, it definitely seems like we have the same wrist size, as on most Gs, I also have 6 holes un-used on the side of the strap not connected to the lugs. That picture definitely helps, if it is not too much hassle, can you post a photo from the same angle for the DW-6900? That angle is exactly what I'm after, thank you!

    By the way, that lightning yellow looks amazing from any angle :)

    Thanks, that's perfect! Guess I should still wait and try it on in store, but that yellow one is really calling out to me. DW-6900 is my first G, and been thinking about getting a modern version of my first G. By the way, I noticed that your DW-6900 has only two grooves on the band near the lugs, whereas my basic black one has three. Also the strap on your DW-6900 seems to wrap around your wrist more, I wonder if it is related to the grooves

    LOL about hair, no comment though haha
