    Greetings- and a request for advice

    First of all, hello to all and thanks for having me!
    I'm totally new to the G-shock world. I don't own any! It's always been about automatics with me, but suddenly I find myself with an itch: I need a digital watch, and (for reasons unknown-maybe because my first ever watch was a DW-5600?) I need it to be a G-Shock. I'll be honest here: I don't plan to start a collection (although I've been admiring many of those on display on various threads), I need one single watch. At least for now....
    Now I need your advice: I want one that displays both day and date on "normal" mode (because US date style, such as "02-16-08" confuses me), and I was also hoping for a negative display. Much like the GW-M5600 in other words. I was wondering- do I have an alternative?

    Hi - and welcome to the forum! You've come to the right place. There are folks on here that could tell Casio a thing or two...

    Yeah, they all say 'I don't plan to start a collection' at first. So you better get your credit card dusted off and at the ready. Don't say you haven't been warned!

    OK. No more messing about. Look no further. You need this:

    GW-M5600BC

    I tend to agree with Barry.

    If you like automatics, you will love the combination of Solar Power and Atomic clock.

    A great choice for sure!

    Thanks!
    This looks really cool! But the fault is mine- I meant (in my initial post) the G-7800, not the GW-M5600.
    You see, in the G-7800, in "normal mode" you get day, date, year- nice and crisp clear....
    BTW, any advice on an EU retailer apart from tictox?

    A G-7710 will also show the the date (including days passed/remaining), year and day of the week and a count of how many weeks have passed.

    Take a look at the manual: http://ftp.casio.co.jp/pub/world_man.../en/qw3095.pdf

    it will explain it better than I did!

    I finally pulled the trigger and went ahead and ordered a GW-M5600, taking advantage of an offer at tictox (they're giving a replacement bezel and strap as part of thee package, which means it will hopefully last me a good few years).
    Strangely, although I have bought one so as to cover my needs, I keep looking at G-shocks! So I'm still open to suggestions- thanks to all who have helped so far btw
