Hey guys, I've been researching square G Shocks until my eyes water and I've finally used all my tissues....HELP! Albeit, I probably could pick any and be just fine; as you all know, it's never that easy when you have so many options. Looking hard at the DW/GW/GWM5600 and 5610----I know, wide range still. Granted I also know there are some exceptions like the 5030 and 5630, but have no idea if I'll be able to find them. In all honesty, I think I've over researched myself into oblivion. If you F17 guru's would be so kind as to steer a blind steed in the right direction, I'd be so so appreciative. I'm ready to join the club!!
Priority list is as follows:
1) Clarity of the LCD - seems like the 3229 module has the best reviews. Also looking good are the 2924, followed by 3159 modules.
2) View current time in other modes
3) Tough solar
So...my question is...what G has the clearest screen out of those that have "current time in other modes" and solar power? It looks like the modules that support current time viewing and solar are the 2597 and 3063. Am I missing any? Basically all of the models I've found with the best reviews for LCD clarity either aren't solar or don't have the current time viewing. Those of you with multiple G's that fit criteria 2&3, can you advise as to which has the better LCD? I'd really like to keep both criteria 2 and 3; and have a good LCD. I'm hoping that's not too much to ask. If I have to give up the solar in order to get a much more legible screen, I'm prepared to do that.
Also, googling just GW-5600 or GWM-5600 gives me all of like 2 options for purchasing. Do I just need to nail down the exact model number and search from there because it doesn't look like I'll be "browsing" for these? LOL Man, I had no idea these basic G Shocks were so popular until you try to find one. Looking for suggestions as it seems I've hit a dead end, especially on where to get some of these things. And yes...this is my first post, which is a thread. But not my first watch, or nice watch I'm looking to gain a new active watch to replace my Rip Curl Tidemaster thats 45x14 and weighs a ton. Can't wear the Tag on the motocross track, and my old Nixon Dolby Digital SS farted off long ago from a crash. Thanks guys, the forum is priceless!
