    Different watches, different features. If you like the Glide features of 7900, go with it. If you think you need more compass, go with the Mater of G.
    I like the look of Mudman more than the one with screws on front.

    I hope these can help you choose the watch:

    I like my 9300, however I like my 7900 better.
    Front mounted light button ( huge plus) buttons much easier to push, screws on front don't bother me.

    Thanks for the reply guys. I think I'm leaning towards the 9300. It just seems it's a more solid watch compared to the 7900. Also, like that the 9300 doesn't have that big G button on the front for the light. Just doesn't suit my likes.

    I like the looks of the GW7900RD, but it is not an easy to read negative display. In general I stay away from negative displays. I do have a GW9300GB and it is much easier to read than the GW7900RD, but I think any given negative display has to be evaluated for legibility based on the color of the digits (e.g. white, gold, etc) and any mirroring of the digits. So I would get a first hand report on the legibility of the GW9300RD before pulling the trigger.

    FWIW: if it were me and I need to actually tell time at work, I would look at the GW9330. There are sometimes decent deals on eBay, and legibility just won't be a question.

    Or consider building your own with a standard GW9300 and the resin from the GW9300RD. The resin on the GW9300 is easy enough to swap... I did it because I wanted a positive display blue model:

    Thanks for the reply! Do you know the difference between the G-9300rd-4er and the G-9300rd-4 ? I'm wondering because the G-9300rd-4er seems to be more expensive on Amazon by about 20 bucks compared to the G-9300rd-4.

    Cheers, Ari

    They are the same watch. Those last two letters are a region indicator, but there is no difference in the actual watch.

    Re: G9300RD-4 Master of G Series Vs. GW-7900RD-4ER

    I am just in the same spot now deciding as I want a red & like the red shade on both the
    Mudman & the 7900

    I like that the mudman has temp but do not really need compass or moon phase etc.
    But the overall look of the mudman I do like a lot.

    Here the mud man @ is $168 USD which is just about exactly double the price of the 7900 @ $82 USD
    so I am wondering too if it is worth that to me..

    You folks have a neg display 7900?
    We have this one G-7900A-4 here? I guess not really exactly the same as this is not solar either

    I've got both the 7900s in your post, flying. The red, non solar is a rosy red which is quite unique - unfortunately the module on my watch died after 9 months of ownership. Now the GW7900 has one of the hardest to read negatives in my collection - very frustrating. I like the red bezel and strap on this burning red, so i used it on my GW7900CD-9.
