    g 5500 - yellow or red?


    the g-5500ts-9

    or



    the g-5500c-4?

    I plan on getting this model for backpacking cause i hear it's basically a mudman. And these colors because I do want something more colorful, rather than my collection of black or white.

    How dirty do each get? And which do you recommend?

    Yellow, for display legibility - but it will probably show the dirt a little more.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Yellow! I have one and love it very much. Yellow has the TYO backlight for Tokyo, so if that doesn't bother you than it is the yellow. I would recommend. It looks great in person too.

    do you have a picture with it on your wrist?

    also does anybody have a wristshot with the g5500c-4 (red one)?

    I would search for the yellow one. That's easier to find than the old red model. You might consider the new upcoming red G-5500A-4.

    are you talking about the glx-5500a-4? cause i can't find the G-5500A-4 picture anywhere.

    and i think i know of one place that still carries the G-5500c-4, that's why I brought up both as options. Thanks Sjors.

    What did you do with it? and how was the TYO in the background? I saw Sjors review on his 50 Gs article, and it seemed VERY distracting to read the time.

    Hi johnch,

    Often the EL background is more present in my photo's than in real. If it really was unreadable (like the MIB Mudman EL Backlight) I would have written that in the article. It is a bit harder to read, but the display itself is very crisp.





    Cheers,

    As @sjors wrote - it's kinda distracting (a little to thick) - i really didn't liked it (and i don't mind logo in dw-5000sl for example).

    Ps. I sold it...
