    Current Production G's with Screw Backs

    I just wanted to make sure my short list of current G's with screw case backs is complete. Please contribute any I missed JDM or otherwise.

    Going through the current catalog from Japan:

    Frogman GWF-1000
    MR-G: tough to tell what that is, can't afford it anyway. Moot point for me.
    Giez models
    GW-5000

    From what I can tell, the MT-G's do not, nor the 7900's.

    Was a recent solar / atomic 6900 series or similar body style made with a screw back?

    Thanks for your input!

    AFAIK, there were never any screw back variations of the 6900. The lone models these days seem to be the Frogs and any of the 5000 variants (like the spike lee, etc.).

    Not sure if its a current model, don't think it is, the G-2000. To me favors the G-23xx series.
    Experience is what you end up with when you didn't get what you wanted.

    You are correct, the G-2000 is a discontinued model.

    Not sure the MR-G has a screwback but can't think of any others. Seems like you have it covered there.

    Yeah, I know about the G-2000. That was a nice watch. The newest GW-2310 is a plastic case and 4-screw back. That's a bummer. If it was like the G-2000, I jump on one.

    Thanks, though.

    It's hard to tell by the pictures what it has. Looks like 4-screws to me, though.

    Is the DW5000 SL Spike Lee still considered current?

    Current production...most likely not, but who has trouble finding any of them? Even the "Project Team Tough" labeled 25th Anniv. Reissues limited to 2008 pieces are out there if the price is right.

    Of course they're still current until 2013 when their newer 30th Anniversary Reissues will come out.

    DW-5025B Rising White 25th Anniversary DW-5000 Reissue
    DW-5025D Ocean Grey 25th Anniversary DW-5000 Reissue
    DW-5000SL Spike Lee 25th Anniversary DW-5000 Reissue
    DW-5025SP "Project Team Tough" labeled 25th Anniversary DW-5000 Reissue

    And besides the 1000series and Final 200, don't forget the GW-200MS MIRB Frog and other 200 series Frogs...they're not current "production" as they've probably stopped producing/assembling these models at the factories but they're the most recent or current "available" series of Frogs.

    Current generation MR-Gs do not have screwback case.

    If I remember correctly, only the following MR-Gs have screwback:

    1. MRG-1100T - aka MR-G Frogman (also features a screwdown bezel)
    2. MRG-1000 - Tactician
    3. MRG-1
    4. MRG-120
    5. MRG-210
    6. MRG-100

    Cheers,
    MountainMike
