    Smile DW-6900-1V still available?

    Hi guys,

    one of the reasons why I joined this forum was because I wanted to find out whether the original DW-6900 is still available. The 6900 was my first real watch back in the 90s and I wore the hell out of it until it perished in a pool one day.
    I have been searching high and low for it, but I can't seem to find it in Germany. There are all sorts of newer versions with crazy colors and what not around, but for me it's got to be that good ol'-fashioned DW-6900-1V.
    If somebody knows a good place that carries them at a reasonable price and ships to Germany, I would greatly appreciate a hint.

    Thanks a lot and take care

    Yes, it's still in production and I don't think it's changed much over the years.

    Amazon has it for $43.84 with free shipping right now:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/?nod...eywords=dw6900

    That's probably the best deal right now. There's also LOTS of other color variations and limited edition of this G-Shock.


    Update: I just saw you're in Germany. I don't know if Amazon will ship to you there. A seller on ebay that will ship internationally might be your best bet.

    Other member in Germany might have better suggetions.

    And BTW - the DW-6900E-2 is only really available in Germany for some reason:



    I've had no luck finding anyone that will sell one to me in the US.

    I've never tried these guys but it looks like they're based in Germany. I normally just use the website to check details on watch features!

    They are available nearly everywhere in my area in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia along with the basic DW5600

    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I was in the same boat as you, ended up sourcing it from Yahoo Japan BNIB for some $100. Love it, especially the fact it comes on wider 'no-dimples' strap and the newer style reversed LCD with enhanced contrast.

    These, DW-6900E-1 (Rough Rowdy) were available in Taiwan for a short while. I have one.

    Hi guys,

    thanks very much for your input!

    I know that the DW-6900E-2 is available in Germany, however, the blue case and strap doesn't agree with me. My favorite would be the original straightforward DW-6900-1V.

    Amazon does ship to Germany, but shipping is mad expensive.

    I have been searching for other sources and found this offer:
    http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...tab%3DWatching

    Even with 19% tax on top, that is still a great price.

    Has anyone dealt with this seller before?

    Cheers

    Add a little black RIT dye into the mix and voila - the killer black stealthed DW-6900 with reverse LCD.

    On the other hand, I see where you're coming from, its sometimes safer to stick with the tried and tested classic model.

    cheers!
