    G-shock Recommendation - Need Help

    I am new to the forum, have owned several Casio's over the years. I currently have a Pathfinder PAG-240 and a Waveceptor GW-330A.

    I just purchased a Master of G Rangeman Limited Edition Watch GW9400DCJ-1. I purchased it for the upgraded version 3 Triple Sensor, Atomic timekeeping and tough solar features, plus it looks cool and it's a G-shock!

    Well, the digital numbers on the Rangeman are about 1/2 the height of the numbers on my Pathfinder and Waveceptor. Though I had Lasik surgery a few years ago, I have to squint to read the numbers on the Rangeman.

    My question - is there a digital G-shock with atomic timekeeping and tough solar that has larger numbers? I can easily read the time on my Pathfinder and Waveceptor.

    Thank you for any help!

    The MTG-M900 has very large time digits for a G. Unfortunately, even from the factory the various colors don't match, and the paint on some of these parts wears off over time.

    If you want big digits and a relatively compact case, a Pro Trek PRW-3100, rather than a G-Shock, would be my choice. They come in many variations.

    The GW-M500 also has larger than average time digits.

    Thanks for the replies!! Question on the Pro Trek. I have an old Pathfinder (predecessor to Pro Trek) and it has served me well, though no atomic timekeeping.

    How would you compare the durability of the Pro Trek 3100 to the G-shock line?

    I bought the GW9010-1 Mudman for that very reason -- easier to read. Available via Amazon for abt $200, but I bought it at brick-and-mortar JCPenny for $110.

    Btw, the mudman above is solar and atomic.

    That's a great price on the Mudman. I went to JC Penny site and they don't list them.

    That's a great pickup for $110.

    Because of the outer resin bezel, something like a Rangeman can take more scrapes than a PRW-3100 without showing obvious damage or damaging the parts of the watch beneath the bezel. Also, it's pretty easy and inexpensive to replace the resin bezel on a Rangeman (or on most other G-Shocks).

    The upside to the PRW-3100 compared to the Rangeman is that it is smaller in diameter, thinner and has much larger time digits.
