    LARGE size G?? (frogman need not apply)

    Always pondering my next G purchase. What's are some larger size G's? I already have a 2300-9v and would not want to go smaller. I'm not a fan of the frogman assymetrical design.

    * CDT and Stopwatch a must.
    * World time, tough solar, and 5th light button are "nice to have's".

    Thanks All!

    My MTG-911 is larger than the 2300, and has all that you mentioned (CDT, STW, world time, solar, 5th light button). Also, I'd look at a Raysman, as it is bigger still (one of the biggest G's actually), and has CDT, STW, solar, and the 5th light button (but no world time). The Raysman uses a very similar module to your 2300 (they're nearly identical).

    Cool Black Force

    I want to buy another G-Shock. I found this link:

    http://g-shock.jp/products/g_bf.html

    I am not a fan of the Frogman either, but I like the Black Force watches.

    An eBay retailer sells these Black Force models:

    Maybe one of the Black Force models will meet your requirements.

    Perfect and thanks for the suggestions. Now I have a couple to dream about and consider for a bit.

    I would say the dw-5300, dw-6600 and dw-6900 are big and they got good timer.

    To echo the thoughts above if you're after a big G you can't go too wrong with a raysman. May lack all the features you're after but it's a pretty cool watch.

    Re: LARGE size G?? (frogman need not apply)

    Talking of large G`s, been after one of these for years, and finally got one last week, can`t believe how big it is, even bigger than my wademan, and absolutely dwarfs the frogman.
    I Really do prefer the older G`s, I got the new TC gulfman a couple of months ago and was very unimpressed, feels really light and cheap, same with the mudman, the old style DW-8400 is in a different league to the newer version. Don`t mean to upset anyone, just my opinion.

    Haha, that Antman is awesome - is that thing bigger (diameter) than, say, a Suunto Core?

    Steve, you could also check out one of these 8300-type watches, if you can find one (I'm not sure about the module features, but they're BIG):

    * shows day, date, month - 24hr countdown timer - shows time in modes - (single) alarm can be set by date - seconds can be set in countdown timer

    All the 'old-school' virtues, in fact.

    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Whoa, careful what you wish for. Thanks all. Really helpful. And just to clarify, I just don't want to go smaller than my 2300. Perhaps a touch bigger, but some of these things are monsters
