    Which Gshock?

    Hi, i have a casio db36 and my band just tore off.Now i'm very inclinated to buy a casio Gshock.
    I don't want to spend much money on this, so which model should i get?

    My requisites are: water resistence 100m or more, stopwatch, timer, alarm and date, which i believe all G-shocks have.One thing that is not a requisite for me but i really like it to had is the tough solar.Oh, and i think the round ones are much prettier.

    I found the DW6900-1v and the [email protected] on ebay for $43,00 which with all the shipping and taxes for my country is a little expensive...

    Unfortunately that's as about as inexpensive as G-Shocks get. On occasion the DW5600E will dip into the $36 dollar range on Amazon but that's about as far as it usually goes.

    I'm not sure about international shipping from Amazon. It might depend on the seller.

    Most any G-Shock will meet your basic requirements. It looks like there's some good solar ones starting at about $55 USD:

    how much time does the dw6900 light lasts?If the light's button is pressed the light will keep on?
    I have issues trying to set an alarm with my db36 because it only lasts like 1-2 seconds even when the button is keep pressed

    Also, a dw6900 would look too big on a 16cm(6,30 inches) wrist?

    I'm not sure, but I think they have programmable a 1.5 second and 5 second setting. You can definitely look at the manuals for that specific module.

    And, no it will not look TOO big on your wrist. I'm a 6.5 wrist, and the DW6900 is definitely large, but that's the style that most Gs go for.

    On the DW-6900 the light will last probably 3 seconds when you press the button, but it will stay lit as long as you press it. The DW-6900 has no programmable illumination duration - this feature wasn't invented yet when the DW-6900 was first released. If you want solar you'd have to go for either G-6900 or GW-6900 (added atomic reception). On the newer ones the illumination won't last as long as the buttons is pressed but you can change the illumination between 1.5 and 3 seconds. If you want really long illumination go for the G-7900 or GLX-6900 (could also be a GLS-5600 or G-9000 - all those models have basically the same functions - except for the added tide/moon data on the 7900 and 6900) - they have switchable illumination duration between 3 and 5 seconds. Not solar though but with a long lasting battery (CR2025 - should be good for 5 years at least).
