Well.... I couldnt help but LOVE this watch when I saw it in another thread here. I did a quick search and found it for a GREAT price on amazon. Went ahead and paid the 3 bucks for the 1 day shipping and here it is today in all of its glory, less than 24 hours later.
It was cheaper than my DW6900MS. I do like having the solar variant, all of the modern features are awesome [4 alarms being the biggest factor for me]. Something you dont really think about it too is how the solar and atomic variants often have the 3 letter day format, whereas the non solar have the two letter. I actually like looking at FRI a lot more than FR. Small, I know, but noticeable.
One thing I noticed about the g6900 is that the buttons are very, very nice. I dont know how else to describe them as anything other than luxurious. They have such a nice push to them? and they are huge!
