I am looking to spend about $100-200 on a every day wear G-Shock. I've used various searches and seem to have found 2 watches which fit my requirements: the GW7900B-1 or GR-8900A-1.
Easy to read digital display
I am 6'4 with a sturdy frame so small watches look toylike on my wrist. I want something that fits me, and these two seem big and useful. They also seem to be older models. Has Casio released any newer watches that fit these specs?
The GW7900B-1 has multi band 6 (atomic time) and it features these "wings" under the band which claim to make it easier to wear. This will be an every day wear for me so feedback on if this actually makes for a more comfortable watch is useful.
The newer GR-8900A-1 lacks atomic (not a huge deal) but seems to have an "easier to read at night" face due to its back lighting technique and negative display. It is even a bit more stealth looking due to the lack of lugs.
Also, for the life of me, I can't figure out why finding size comparisons seems so hard. Casio doesn't manage to give size measurements and so I don't even have a good idea on how the two compare in size. Does anyone have both who could provide a comparison?
There also seems to be a similar watch to these two, the GW-9400-1CR. It seems to have some extra stuff that doesn't matter to me and a more grey face with red accents which is turning me off as its much less stealth. Seems to be a bit better build quality tho.
Anyone think I am on the right track here or have a totally different suggestion? I have a little collection of dress style watches, and some divers. Nothing super high end, but not cheap-o fashion brand stuff (seiko, citizen, etc), and I want something that is just simple. The G-Shock series seems like it has a higher level of respect within the watch community and I can only assume that is due to their quality and durability.
