    Atomic and Solar - USA/EUROPE

    HI Collectors,

    How about the GW9200 Riseman or the GW9010 Rally Mudman? Both are atomic multiband 6.

    there are lots of solar powered, five(six)band radio controlled watches out there these days. the riseman GW-9200 is definately one of the watches I highly recommend also, because of a very advanced module. but if you are looking mainly for the prefect time keeping device, any radio contolled casio (g-shock or not) will do just fine.

    You might consider the Mudman GW9010-1 which can receive calibration signals from the US, England, Germany, China and Japan. I recently purchased this watch from Shopemco, an excellent dealer. The watch is not overly large and is very comfortable.

    Not a G but haven't you look into the Casio Oceanus range?

    This watch was my latest catch and the the best watch (out of 10)
    I have now. Small and light to wear (titanium).
    There is also a version with a black face.
    If you don't need a chronograph of timers maybe this is a good option.
    Setback: It is not cheap
    See the last entry in my sig for the model.

    Right! Like Henri says, there is also a dark face version of the fanrtastic (Japan only ) watch. They work fine all over the world where the atomic sirnal is broadcasted.
    Everywhere else they work as a normal quartz watch.


    Oceanus OCW-T100TD 1AJF.

    I hope this helps you in the choice you make.
