    G 7900 + PR 240 + ?? what should be the next step??

    Hi all

    I am new on this forum...but bought my first G Shock after reading a review about the G 7900 somewhere on this forum; I like the 7900 very much especially alarms/sounds and tidal information (I am living near the sea).

    A couple of months later I bought the PR 240 Orange version.....also a very nice watch (but alarms are very soft)!!

    Lately I have been looking around and searching for a third one, that could be used for 'more dressed' occasions but also has the outdoor features..(sun rise/sun set + tidal + count down + atomic)

    What could be the right 'additional' model? Frogman is quite expensive....but I like the look of it....Gulfman looks very similar to the 7900 in terms of features..or am I wrong?

    Anyone suggestions? Please feel free to show your advise!

    Thanks in advance
    cheers Fookus

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations to your purchases. The PRG240 doesn't work for me for several reasons but the G-7900 is one of the best G-Shock's ever made (in my opinion anyway)

    Honestly, if you want to go "dressy" neither a G-Shock nor a Protrek are excatly the best choices. Still, if you have the need for outdoor features, a Protrek with Titanium case and bracelet might be nice, such as a PRW-2000 or a PRW-3000 perhaps?

    I have found and read the original review that was done by you cal.45!
    what do you think of the GW-9110-1ER (although it isn't the plain G-version)?

    I think the GW-9110 is a nice G-Shock, maybe a little underrated. Basically it houses the same module as a GW-7900 but with a slightly different design, the lack of the fifth light button (which is not so good) and the lack of the ugly and unreliable metal rivets (which is very good). Personally there is a little too much red on this watch for me, I would probably own one if the red accents were blue but other than that I think it is a flawless, good G.

    I have found an older alternative...and bought it! The Fisherman...It doesn't have the CDT...but I like the other features such as vibration alarm

    The PAS400 is a very nice and rugged watch and for the price a truly steal. Unfortunately the lack of a CDT kills it totally for me, this is my most used feature in digital watches. Would it have a CDT, I could see that this watch became my favorite digital Casio quite some time ago, because in nearly any other aspect it is perfect (backlight, sunrise/sunset, moonphase, huge digits, vibe alarm, nice buttons ect.) Anyway, I hope you enjoy yours - nice trio by the way


    cheers
