    Am going to order a solar atomic watch. But which one?

    Finally it's weekend, and in the next hours I am going to place an order on Amazon for a Solar Atomic Casio.
    I like the GW m5610, which is now on sale for €94 shipment included.
    Do I have any alternative except the GW6900? Something with metal wristband? Answer soon and I will let your know my pick!

    There are a LOT of Casio solar atomics, but what features do you want?

    Do you want a square case, like the GW-M5610?

    If you want a metal bracelet, there's the MTG-M900 series, which has been selling for less than $100 according a couple of threads around here -- though your use of the " € " symbol suggests that you might have to pay more for one. Speaking of, how much do you want to spend on your new watch? That might affect some of your choices.

    If you're happy with a round watch case, besides the GW-6900, there's also the GW-2310, the GW-9000, GW-9010, and GW-7900 and quite a few others. At the more expensive end of the solar/atomic range are models like the Riseman, Rangeman, even solar/atomic Frogmen.

    Have you seen the https://forums.watchuseek.com/f43/sta...ck-850524.html thread yet? There are quite a few other solar/atomic models listed in there as well.

    I'd suggest waiting beyond "in the next hours" and research all weekend before buying anything!

    My budget is €100, and I want a regular watch, something I van wear even with a suit during my week.

    If you want something to wear with a suit, do you necessarily want a G-Shock? Casio also makes a lot of non-G "Waveceptor" models that might fit the bill.

    In the G-Shock line, there's also the GW-M500 series which (like the MTG-900) are a little "dressier" than the all-resin-cased G's.

    Under €100, you still have a LOT of choices to narrow down!

    For the money the GW-6900 is a great choice. My wrist is about 6.75in and I find it very comfortable.

    The 6900 is def one of my favs. I wear it to the gym everyday. Light weight and tough as nails, with solar to boot!

    I've found a great bargain on eBay last week (€49 in mint condition) and i wasn't expecting it to be so nice and confortable.
    Ok it as a pretty basic module, no frills no shocking colours, but it has that "underdog" feeling that make it look cool to my eyes

    Sorry, that watch - wonderful as it may be - does NOT go with that (or any) suit. Period.

    Fashion rules are pretty relaxed nowadays. I think that most people wouldn't notice that stealthy black G with a black suit attire.
