    Question Help Needed 6600 Question

    Hi everyone. The new has worn off last weeks purchases and I find myself in need of a new fix. Years ago I had a 6600 series G. I don't remember it having that large G logo on the display. If I'm correct on that does anyone know the model number of it or where I can locate one without the screen logo? I find it rather distracting to look at.:thanks

    $52 from Amazon
    http://www.amazon.com/Casio-G-Shock-DW66001V/dp/B000288746/ref=sr_1_29?ie=UTF8&s=watches&qid=1251266299&sr=1-29

    You can try ebay, but you'll have to ask the sellers about the background 'G'.

    I'm currently waiting for one to come in, but the Post Office is being such a pain

    DW6600C-1 has a G in the background, version without C doesn't.
    But after few days you don't care if it's there

    I would hate it if it was there, which is why I recently had a bit of a hunt to find one without it. I don't know if my impression is correct, but there don't seem to be an awful lot of them about.

    I've only ever had one G-Shock with a symbol behind the display and it annoyed me intensely.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I wanted one REALLY BADLY without the G, but was having trouble finding it. I finally broke down and bought one with the G, and I have to admit that: (1) I immediately liked it; (2) it never distracts me, or causes any problem with reading the time or functions.

    That 6600 with the background is, I do believe, my favorite just G. I have one other that I actually use more (the MTG900 that is dying, see my other recent thread), but I think if I could only have one G, the 6600 with the G would be it.

    NOW, that is NOT to necessarily say that I would avoid getting a 6600 in favor or a 6600C. Just that I don't think I would care particularly one way or the other. Since I already have one with the G, if the two were side-by-side, I'd probably go for the one without, just for a more complete collection.

    One man's meat, etc. I had one or two 6600's without the big red "G" in the EL. When I first realized those were available too, I had a bit of hunt to track one down. I like it!

    I find some of the displays within EL to be annoying (primarily because they can obscure in the watch's information a bit), but the big red "G" has never bothered me. If I could have only one 6600, I'd probably take one with that red "G".
