    HAHA! I just imagined a person with dozens of atomic G's synced together to play a symphony.

    Anyways, I had a GWM5600 (atomic) and the alarm was useless. I stuck with using the one on my mobile phone.

    I think you mean LED because LCD is what computer screens are made out of.

    No, I meant LCD. Casio made a lot of LCD watches with very loud alarms back in the 1980's.

    So is it true or can it be assumed that non-solar powered G-Shocks have louder alarms than solar powered G-Shocks?

    On Seikos they were louder too. I had this nice digital from about 1983 I think before it was lost under weird circumstances a few years later. It was shinny and these dudes with shotguns and dogs were chasing me and a friend. Almost had to shoot their dog. Big black lab. I mistakenly took it off hastily, when I didn't want to be seen. Then I forgot and left it in this remote place. Was a pity. They tended to have chimes instead of simple beeps. Those you could wake to. Very useful generally, just sounded kind of goofy.

    Later in the 80s I bought a G-Shock. Used that for years. Then it went missing. Maybe it's still in a box some place.

    Yes, it's true for some models but not for every model - some Gs with a standard battery are exactly the same loudness as a solar G. The loudest G-Shock ever was this one:

    To throw another opinion in the hat...my PAG-40 had by far the loudest alarm of any watch I have ever owned. People in the office would turn their head when the hourly chime went off.

    Also, see thread below.

    I need to update it badly as I have cycled out several watches with new.
