    Thumbs Up G-7700 special editions for Nov.

    For fans of G-7700(like myself), here are 2 special editions of this highly under-rated and under-spoken watch for the month of Nov.

    G-7700G-9JF Treasure Gold

    *From the price in Yen, I believe it is just gold plated. Not solid gold.*

    G-7700LV-7JF Precious Heart Selection 2007

    Everyone should just stop talking about those Mud/Gulf/Frog man watches already.

    I like the black one. I think the gold goes really well with the watch.

    And from the picture, the strap and case appears to be of a glossy black instead of the standard dull black on the G-7700/7710.....

    The white looks gay.

    the G-7700 is certainly a nice watch and has good timing features but somehow it doesn't do anything for me, much less those fancy looking special editions. I don't like white watches, I don't like gold in any form and I don't like glossy black when I can have dull black, sorry.

    I quite like the colour schemes on both those. They look quite striking. However, I don't like the G7700. The display looks like one of those cash register receipts I can never understand.

    By jove, you are absolutely right the G 7700 looks pretty capable a module but the info digit overloaded display does make it look like a cash register receipt.

    But then to be fair it would be good for those racing their cars or bikes and those that are running laps.

    Yes, that's probably true. I think the Kawasaki one looks like it belongs on a biker. They're just not for me though. The shiny bezel part also turns me off.

    I'm hoping they put module 3095 into a more traditional-looking G, then I will buy it.

    As things stand, this is a very cool module, beats the pants off most of the older G-modules b/c it is user-configurable in areas that really matter: timers, alarms, stopwatch, you name it. And to show that they were really paying attention, they have made the hourly time signal configurable so you can effectively turn it off at night only. This is the main reason I don't use the hourly chime now -- I don't want it going off at night to wake me up.

    I'm on the fence with this model, I look at it as an upgrade from my PAW-1300 in the following areas:

    -- no atomic (a plus for me)
    -- no tough solar (plus for me)
    -- user configurable across the board
    -- no compass, alti, baro (I don't need them)
    -- LED lights!
    -- fifth light button
    -- relatively cheap

    downgrade in these areas:

    -- over looks of the display, small-ish
    -- strap inferior
    -- can't see current time in STW and CDT modes

    so, a dilemma
    Go Dortmund!

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

    The screen does look a little cluttered but I've gotten used to it. Mudman is also a little cluttered and I'm also used to it as well.

    Strap feels like any other G-Shock, so I don't know why you say it is inferior. One plus point about the strap is the clasp doesn't slide around. There is some kind of grooves "locking" the clasp where you place it. And if you want to move it, you have to apply some strength. Even the popular Mudman and Gulfman clasp slides around.

    I have to admit, when I 1st saw the G-7700 on the internet, I never thought much of it. I found the screen extremely complicated and "Oh.... Just another G-Shock".... But I went to a store to try it on and bought it soon after. Wanted to buy it immediately but unfortunately I needed clearance from my finance manager.

    The comfort level is very high on this one. Much better than a Mudman, Gulfman, whatever Man. It is very light and have nothing rough or vice-like to grip your wrist both on the back and the strap.

    The screen is complicated but it is easy to read when it is on your wrist. I thought it is hard when I saw the pic on the net but when I tried it on I found it to be untrue. The negative display model is also VERY MUCH easier to read than say, the green Mudman and the Metallix-G series. Guess Casio really improved in this negative display area.

    You can also set it to show how many days of the year has passed and how many remaining. The 181-184 on the 1st pic, top screen column shows 181 days has passed and 184 days remaining.

    And the lap time function and ability to time and display in laps really come in handy for a runner. You can also set a 5 sec countdown timer on the stopwatch. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and GO! Plus you can recall the last stopwatch time thanks to the memory function.

    Casio really listened to their customers on this one. And this is the MOST comfortable G-Shock I have ever owned. I hope there are more special editions based on this one.
