Haven't bought a watch recently and having the itch to add a neg face GShock to my smallish collection.
I've checked some at Macy's store and they are hard to read unless you are holding the watch at 90 degrees. On the contrary, I saw some Timex watches that had big bold numbers but the negative face is easier to read than Casio . Is it cos most of the Gshocks (solar) have solar panel on top which creates another layer making the display hard to read? I owned Suunto Ambit back a while ago and it probably had the best negative display but I sold it as it was just 'too much watch' for me.
Kinda ironic to see Casio using negative display on ABC watches like Rangeman/PRW3000 which really makes it impractical (hiking with 50lbs load and need to check altitude..oh wait..let me put my backpack down cos I have to press the light button ).
Any negative display Gshocks out there that are more 'readable' than others? I like the chunky offerings like my G7900.
