    Looking for somthing like the gshock GW7900B-1

    Hey guys I've been lurking on this forum for a while. I was wondering is there a gshock with the simplicity of the GW6900 display but the buttons of the GW7900?

    I ask this because I will be wearing whatever watch I get with gloves for the most part and sometimes at night. Therefore I need to be able to read it, I don't want anything too reflective, the matte black is nice. I do want the multiband 6 and solar recharging.

    A pathfinder would be fine too, it doesn't need to be a g shock but it does need to be easily manipulated with gloves on, which is why I like the g shock with the easy G spot light button lol.

    Also I do enjoy the reverse displays but everyone says they're hard to read in low light situations, I don't have bad eyes but around dawn or dusk I wouldn't want to struggle to read my watch at a glance so any thoughts on that would be appreciated. Thanks.

    How about the GW-2310?

    Good beefy buttons, including a 5th light button.
    Solar atomic (multiband 6)
    Essentially the same features as GW-6900. (It doesn't have the moon/tide features of the GW7900B).
    Excellent positive display, so good for low-light situations.

    Amazon price is $88.

    Very awesome thank you! I see it only has a 1 hr CDT. any similar models with a 24 hr one that you know? I have noticed with lower priced models it seems Casio sacrifices the 24 hr CDT for solar and atomic. Thanks for your help!

    fyi, I picked up the paw-1300Y PRW-5000T-7 and the GW-2310-1 and will be doing zulu straps on all of them.

    Casio Parts USA in NJ sells the strap adapters for the G2300B that are exact fit for the GW2310.

    Check out my thread from about a day ago titled "Modified GW2310-1". I did to mine what I think you want to do to yours, once you get it. And I was also looking for the 7900 but got the 2310 and modified it.
