    The G7900 Rescue series: Was it a big deal at one time?

    A number of reviews from awhile back that I've read give me the impression that the 7900 Rescue series watches were a big deal upon release. Were they?

    A man wearing a watch, outside of purely social functions (where, strictly speaking, a watch is not supposed to be worn), makes it clear to everyone in his purview that they are in the presence of a man who considers his time something of value, not something to be wasted.




    A man wearing an ostentatiously expensive watch makes it clear to everyone in his purview that they are in the presence of a man who considers little.

    What makes the 7900 special?

    Forgot to mention that I got my own GW7900B in 2010, 7 years ago, and it is still listed on the current Casio web site for sale, so obviously continues to make money for them!

    I'm just speculating, but I think it's a model loaded with features but reasonably priced. Entry level Master of G.

    Personally I think the 8900 is a better G (not solar though).

    IIRC some people had problems with the pseudo screws falling out of the early ones. But other than that a solid choice.

    The G-7900 has from all G-Shock's I have to date the very best buttons. They are easily pushed with a great tactile feeling and also with thick gloves they are fine to operate. The display is of exceptional clarity, the wearing comfort is very good and the look (especially the olive drab one) is just bad-ass.

    The module is still one of the best that I have seen (among my personal top five), it is basically the same module that is used in the G-9000 mudman but with added tide/moon graph.

    2x 1000h stopwatch
    24h cdt with repeat (unfortunately not adjustable to the second)
    alarm with date function, you can set an alarm to any date throughout the year
    worldtime
    either 3 or 5 seconds of illumination
    el-backlight
    flashalarm (can be turned off)
    CR2025 battery



    cheers

    This is only true for the GW-7900 series not for the G-7900 series.
