    I really love this particular model because the color is yellow (my favorite color), can display 2 time zones simultaneously, and it has the function that I used often.

    dual time (this was unexpected, I'm happy that it had this feature), just press split reset button and the time in your second city will show on top which a lot easier compare to G9200 Riseman.

    The colors in the picture are not the same because of the light outside the window. The color of the bezel and strap is yellow (not painted) so I think it will not fade on the years to come. I expect that it will also become shiny yellow later on because of wear (same as those in black bezels and bands). It's Auto El will not light when it's bright but still I did not turn it on. I experienced with my mudman (G9300-1DR) that the battery charge went from high to medium just overnight! I don't think that i need this feature as of now. I'm 100% satisfied with this model. For those of you who want to have a color yellow Gshock in your collection, you might want to check this one.

    I hope that you enjoy my short review and thanks for reading.

    Great review of a watch i own. Love the pics of the various features, rather than just seeing the home screen all the time. I also have the G-6900-1 with Kermit (G-6900GR-3) bezel and band - gorgeous.

    The G6900GR-3 also looks good, may i ask if the green color in the bezel and band is painted or it is the resin color?

    Nice review! I love the color - to bad it stains very easily so I only wear my GW-6900A-9 in the summertime. Enjoy!

    cheers, Sedi

    I don't wear it often, I'm afraid that the stain will be hard to remove
