    Cool Burning Red!

    So I've had another come along! With a deal which was too good to be true which turned out to be true haha. I now own this!

    Here it is! The crystal is so dirty! But oddly, the rest of the watch was basically brand new, just dirty from a bit of wear. Crystal might be the way it is from the protective plastic glue stuff.

    I pulled the bands and wings off for cleaning. The watch is really clean! Clean red resin too.

    Comparison with the other 7900 I have. I used to own the 7900KG but that was sold off.

    Re: Burning Red!

    Thanks guys!

    Yea, the negative displays on the 7900 are not the most user friendly including the 7900NV. I sold the 7900KG for that sole reason. Now I own 2 others lol. I love the These are an absolute shocker compared to the others I own. In low light, it's borderline useless. But its remedied by the autoEL. In daylight though, it's not too bad! It looks damn cool with the negative though haha I find it works well with the red!

    Yea far out, I have the exact same thinking. It's a nightmare using some of these negatives in low light!

    Yes that Red is very nice & I have always admired the Red G's from my first time in a G store.
    Back then I saw the mudman in Red & thought wow
