    Cheap Solar G?

    Hey guys as the story goes, the bug has bit. I have the following casio watches
    dw5600b-1av
    dw9052
    Ga120bb

    Now I would love to get a solar :D, I like the gw7900B, but want something cheaper

    I have following criteria
    Solar (atomic wanted, willing to forgo)
    cheap ( max 100 USD, would like it to be ideally less than 50)
    Tough (G preferred)
    Stop watch
    Neg display is ok but not needed
    Legible back light

    On a side note is the dw5600b-1av worth selling to purchase the new watch? How much can it fetch?

    Also fwiw my 9052 is on its original battery and about 6-8 years old with numerous EL uses and a lot of banging. So I hope the solar battery lasts a minimum of 10 years....

    Maybe a G-5600 or G-6900? Or try looking for older models on eBay, like the GW-810 - on German eBay that was for a long time the cheapest solar atomic G. A GW-M850 might also be available for around 100$ or even cheaper.

    Cheers, Sedi

    Standard G-9000-1 goes low. Orange one was low. I got mind GW-9000-1 used $50 under. Off f29 instead of eBay.
    years ago has a lot on f29.

    I don't think this watch is either Atomic or Solar! I think it is misrepresented.
