    Does this watch exist? Reverse LCD 5600 with atomic solar?

    Hi, I'm relatively new to the g-shock world and I'm overwhelmed with all the different models and variations.

    I'm looking for this watch here but with the solar atomic features. The reverse LCD is cool, but honestly the biggest attraction to this watch is the blacked out "G-shock, protection" engravings.

    Or, can anyone recommend an atomic solar model with large digits? I personally can't stand how so many g-shocks are large but have small digits to accommodate all the sub-dials and such. I like the MTG910DA-1V. Is there a reverse LCD version? How about something similar with a countdown timer?

    thanks for your help.

    Yup..the BC is what you are looking for. I was looking for the same thing when I was new to the G-shock world..but I wanted the 6900 version.
    It was my first G and still one of my favorites.

    That watch is perfect! Just my luck that it's discontinued though.

    Wow, that watch is even better! Again, it seems to be an expensive out of production limited model.

    How about a G-7800B-1? Too me it's the best negative display G-Shock ever (and I have quite a lot negative display G-Shocks) and the digits are just the right size for the case I think, and it doesn't get much blacker than this one:



    However it's neither atomic nor solar but so far only the G-7800B-1 and the G-7710-1 have really good negative displays where you can even adjust the contrast - I wonder why Casio never implemented that in a solar-atomic model. They both run on a CR2025 battery so I think you won't need solar - they should run for at least 5 years on one battery.
    edit: here's a little comparison picture of my negative display G-Shocks:


    from left to right and top to bottom:
    G-7800B-1
    G-7710-1
    G-8000-3
    bottom:
    G-7710C-2
    G-8000-4

    Why are all the Casios that I like limited editions and out of production? I also discovered the paw-1300y recently in the FS section but didn't get it in time. That one is also limited and discontinued. Are my tastes dissimilar to the majority here? Or are my tastes actually congruent with everyone and Casio knows they can charge a premium for these models?
