    Best negative display g-shock's: post pics here!

    I have my trusty GW-7900B (stormtrooper mod) on and I've always found this to be a really easy negative display watch. I've had several older models that are really hard to read in most light. I'm considering a GW-6900F with a red/plum negative display or a GW-2310FB. Both models have really come down in price and would be great for modding as well. What do you guys find are the best negative display g-shocks?

    Pics of each:

    GW-2310fb


    I think a stealthed GW-6900 would be great but the GW-6900BC is way too much $$$.

    Thanks in advance!

    It was a REAL chore for me to decide between the standard black and the white/strawberry GW6900. I ended up with the black because I'm pale skinned but if I was remotely tan/dark at all I would have chose that white 6900 for sure!

    It also gets my vote for best neg display because a) the newer GW6900s have a fantastic digital font and b) the strawberry/silver contrasts a lot better!

    But a good runner up is this: GWX8900

    Have you already thought about the 7710? Lots of users (including Sedi) really seam to campaign for that one. And they are absolutely right. I, for myself don't have the watch anymore but I really liked especially the several countdown timers and alarms. The illumination is also really nice on that one. You can even set the contrast on this model!

    I second that; the G-7710-1er does have one of the best negative displays out there. The fact that you are able to adjust the contrast of the display gives you additional control. Mine is set to the max all the time, so the display is readable even under poor llight conditions or from flat angles.

    I would recommend it as the most legible display, but there is another one I like even better: The G-7800 series. It has got an adjustable contrast diplay, too, but the digits are much bigger than the ones on the 7710. The digits consist of several small dots, giving them a slightly uncommon look. You are able to choose between two different fonts, which can be combined (different fonts for different rows of the display). All together the G-7800 is the most legible G with negative display I have seen so far. It has tons of functions and a somehow elegant, futuristic appearance.

    Just showing an old classic, modded by yours truly, as the older models don´t get much love these days:

    The GY (Smokey Gray) series is very easy to read for me.
