    can anyone help me find the perfect watch?

    i have many great casio with different functions but actually none of them includes all the functions or style i want to. also i cant imagine one with all. maybe someone knows more? it should have:

    - shock resistant
    - 200m wr
    - solar battery
    - illuminator, flash function at alarm and signal (see g-5500 hasnt got that)
    - 5 buttons style (6900, 9000, etc)
    - time keeping of course (hour signal, date, etc. of course)
    - stopw at least 24 hours
    - cdt at least 24 hours is ok
    - showing time in all modes
    - at least but better more than 1 alarm
    - 1 snooze alarm , its a must!
    - louder beep signal (see dw6900 is louder than g9000)
    - 1 second time zone (alternativ worldtime is also ok)
    - vintage style (not like g-9000 or gulfman, more like dw-6900, or 5600)
    - not too big (not like frogman or dw6900)
    - screwback (ok thats more like a dream now)
    - no unimportant graphic details that have no real use (see dw-8700)

    i think thats all, any suggestions???

    thank you

    thats a big ask.. i cant think of any out of my collection that meet all your requirements..

    i suggest a petition to Casio HQ stating all the features you require, i even have a name for it, a 'Wiseman!'

    Somebody is really dreaming today.

    The G-2300 is a solar 5-button with many of those functions. The GW-200 Frogman is a 4-button screwback with many of those features. The G-9000 Mudman and G-3010 are standard battery models with many of those features.

    Would it be safe to say that Casio would be charging an arm and a leg for such a watch if they ever made it? not to mention closing down all their other watch lines as everyone would only want this one... hehe

    Yep...can't see Casio ever making a 'complete' G-Shock...


    ...it just goes against their mentality.

    Nope:
    1hr cdt
    not 'screwback'
    no flash function
    not '5 button' style

    Reason:
    It's the same module in a GW-5500/GW-5525
