    Analog Digital with long stopwatch duration?

    Searching Amazon and the Casio websites has failed, so I hope someone here just knows. Can anybody identify an Analog Digital, definitely solar and preferably also atomic, with a stopwatch duration longer than 59 minutes? Like 24 hours, perhaps? And really powerful lume on the hands would also be good, but perhaps too much to seek. Thanks

    The GW-2500 and GW-3500 have 24 hrs STW and at least adequate lume on the hands.

    Sedi: Thanks. I thought it might be you who would post exactly what I sought. The main reservation reviewers seem to have with both models is that the subdials cannot be illuminated at night. Thus, only the main analog hands can be seen in the dark. Too bad, really.

    Yep, that's a disadvantage. The AQ-S800/810 has backlight on the LCD but only a 60 min STW. SGW-400 and SGW-500 have 24 hr STW and illuminated LCD but they're not solar. So far the only solar ana-digi with a fully illuminated LCD (meaning the LCD covered the whole dial except for the solar-panels at the outer perimeter of course) that I know of is the PRG-60 an old Protrek-model that is long discontinued - it had a 24 hr STW but the rest of the features is pretty outdated - only one alarm and no timer.
    The new PRW-6000 has a 24 hr STW and illuminated LCD and hands.

    cheers, Sedi

    Got it. One of my old daily drivers. It's titanium & resin, triple sensor, solar but not atomic, very thick but much lighter than it looks, but no sweep second hand. Lives on a window sill, still works good.

    PRG-60T.

    These posts confirm what I suspected. My backup plan has now been implemented for a very good deal on a (huge) Eco Drive with what is said to be decent lume and a 24 hour stopwatch. I have a few Eco Drives and don't find them as tough as G-Shocks, but this will provide experience with the concept until Resco is able to bring their quartz chronograph to market later in the Spring. It won't be solar or atomic, but Resco is determined that the chrono will share the strength and durability of their superb mechanicals, Once again on this forum, I am grateful to the same posters for their insight, clarity and willingness to help.
