    Off Topic post If you can only have one 6900 series... which would it be?

    I realise this sort of posts might be a bit of cliche

    I am asking because I really love the look of 6900 - to me, the 6900 (rather than the square models)
    is the quintessential g-shock

    The problem is, I've been trying to downsize my collection, and I don't want to overflow my collection/rotation with too many g-shocks.

    So, if you can only allow yourself one 6900, which would it be?
    To me, the obvious thing is to look for a 6900 screwback. But unfortunately such a thing does not exist yet.
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    It won't exist, unless Casio decides to make it all round.

    Back to the question, the one and only 6900 should be this

    Easy - this one - best module in a 6900 case - GLX-6900


    Cheers, Sedi

    I am also very fond of the module in the GLX-6900, I have the same blue GLX as Sedi :)

    however if I were to throw out all my 6900s bar one, I would have to keep this one:

    GW-6900RD-4 or the "Men in Burning Red"

    Hands down my favourite 6900, IMO the black and red colours work wonders for the iconic 3-eye 6900 design. Has nice little touches like the IP black buckle to make it a little more special than the rest :)

    But...the downside is that this is becoming increasingly rare, so you'll be hard pressed to find one at a reasonable price!

    As soon as I saw this thread, I thought of this model. Yes, this is the best one, IMO as well

    I had this one for quite some time to complete the Men in Burning Red collection but ended up letting the MIBR Riseman and GW-6900RD go because of the negative display.

    But will +1 LVT's recommendation of the GW-6900BC or the positive GW-6900-1 and picking up the composite bracelet.
