    Finally... Acquired my "holy grail" 7900MS

    Got into the 7900-madness while looking at Sjors' amazing images of the GW7900MS. I really wanted one so badly. Unfortunately in The Netherlands it was nowhere to be found and if you wanted to order it the price was too high (for me).

    So in the meantime I just bought some regular G7900's. Right now I have the black/red, blue, army green and white one. Love them all. Kept looking at the MS though...

    Was just browsing casually on eBay and Amazon.co.uk and low and behold... A really really nice price for the GW7900MS was on my screen. Could not believe it. And from Amazon itself as well (don't like buying from affiliate vendors). Ordered it immediately and hoped it would arrive soon. Which it did. Three days later it was here. Very well packaged, mint box, nice hexagonal Casio tin, super cool looking watch.

    Did not expect the display to be a shade of orange as well. It's very subtle, but also very nice. Complements the watch colors nicely. The buttons depress very smoothly, more so than the other 4 7900's. Might be a coincidence. The strap I really like. It's wide, well made and very comfortable. The orange inside is cool and because my wrists are very thin you can always see some orange sticking out on the end as well.

    Alas it's immediately my favorite 7900 by far and now I also just got to have the yellow version as well. And maybe the blue as well. This site is not good for me, really...

    Here's a wrist shot and a link for some unpacking goodness as well

    No, after reading six hundred pages how to set it up correctly I still have no idea. No idea how to find the correct tidal information, no idea how to adjust the watch, etcetera.

    So all my 5 G's are displaying random bogus tidal information

    Still have this page open in one of my browser tabs (nearest city with tide prediction I could find) so will look into it yet again now...

    Wow, just my luck These things always happen. Oh well, it's a shame but still the price wasn't too bad. Pity the yellow one is still very expensive otherwise I would've bought that one today as well.

    It can happen to anyone, I just bought a Timex a few days ago and should have waited too.

    Could you clarify how you can tell it's too high? I have 3 x 7900's and was working under the assumption that by setting your 'home city', the tide setting was automatically adjusted. I also have neven 'manually' adjusted the tide, and despite reading the manual, still confess to being confused...
