    I'd say that description fits it perfectly. It's a good looking G that has a good size to it. It shares the same "XL" size as the GD(F)100, GA110, GA120, and the GD200. I tried one on recently and like the feel and look of it, however I was a bit disapointed by the rather basic module. I don't recall if it has World Time or not, but all I remember is stop watch, CDT, and alarm. Time does not show in all functions. A good starter G, but I feel that it's a bit overpriced at $140. I imagine the price will come down a bit as the "newness" of this model wears off. Can't wait to see some other color combinations on this one.

    Thanks for your thoughts! I have also eyed up the GW7900B-1. Not sure I would really use the tide graph, but like the look never the less!!

    I have 3 x '7900s' (including the GW7900b), I never use the tide function, but I love the watches. I have back seats in my car, though I never use them, but they are nice to have

    And there is something I don't like in these newer models(GA-100, GD-100, G/GR/GW-8900), which is the cheaper look and lack of refinement of the bands. The buckle doesn't impress me either... casio used to use thick machined buckles and now they are using pressed molded metal sheet ones:



    It has a solar panel, but no wavereceptor module.
