    While I will say that I do like this particular watch, very much, I would hope that it does not kill the 6900 series.

    Very cool addition - the 8900 is a great looking series and the G-Lides (G-Rides!!) are no different. Great pics as always - looking good!

    The 7900's are my favourites, although the 56s are currently my focus. But nothing is excluded, except pink Risemans.

    Wow, I like that a lot. It's good to see a new glossy black G with a positive display.
