    Help A Noob Find His Next G-Shock

    I'm looking for new G-Shock. Is there anything out there that meets my list?:

    Looks similar to DW-9052 but without the gray pegs on the strap
    DST
    Countdown timer
    Stopwatch
    At least two alarms
    World time useful (not mandatory)
    Around $50 price range
    Band separate from case
    Large readable display
    Large light button
    Can take a real beating (I work on my house, cars, hiking...)

    Also, please suggest some possible on-line sellers.:thanks

    The closest match I can think of would be the G9000 Mudman or the G2300 series. The 2300 is solar (non atomic) the G9000 is not, but uses a large CR2025 battery, which should last a very long time. The G9000 has the better display and has one of the best resin straps of any G. Both are at the top in terms of sheer durability. The G2300B has a very comfortable nylon strap and can be found online or at some Walmarts for 50-60 bucks. Both are very tough, feature rich G's.

    I would second the Mudman, although I'm not sure it fits the 'band separate from case' criteria.

    Yep. I'd check out the G-9000 Mudman and the G2300B-1V. The Mudman has a much clearer display, but the G2300B-1V has the nylon strap and strap adapters. Both are wickedly durable.

    Penneys has a 2 day sale, 25th, 26th. The Atomic Mudman which retails for $150, can be bought for $85 out the door, I purchased one, as well as 3 of my friends.
    Good Luck, JDOUGLASS

    Yes. You can order a 2300B-1V replacement bezel directly from Casio, inc. That is the model with the red lettering.
