    G-Shock with second hand

    I have a difficult time at night reading my digital shocks without glasses. Looking for a analog G-Shock with second hand and back light. Is there anything like that?

    sodamonkey, Thanks, is there by chance a back light that lights up the dial.

    These have a bright white LED which sits between 30 & 35 minutes. I have a GA-700 and the light is very bright.

    They don't have a backlight as such but mine is easily readable at night.

    GA-800 does have dual LED that lights up both the dial and LCD. To be honest, the thing is that they are actually "too bright" for my dark adjusted eye in the middle of the night.



    If you want easy to read analog watch, you can try Seiko diver watch. They comes in while variety of shape, size, price, quartz vs automatic. And they usually have great lume that will last through out the night.

    Or something like a Traser or Luminox with Tritium gas tube. The lume doesn't need to be charged and will keep on glowing for about 25 yrs (usable brightness).

    To me, I just found dimmer but good enough lume is easier on the eyes in the dark.

    Oh, ok, I just assumed the light was in the same place as the GA-700 as they're fairly similar.

    I remembered my GD350 has bigger numbers so I tried her last night and I was able to read the time without glasses.
    I love it when a plan comes together.
