    Looking for a specific G-Shock

    Hello world of WatchUSeek!
    I'm looking for a particular feature set in a G-Shock and I'm having a hard time finding it.

    -Positive digital display
    -Medium/large size
    -Displays current time while in timer and stopwatch mode
    -Solar/atomic (as they usually come in pairs)

    Basically if my GW-6900 displayed the time in timer and stopwatch mode it would be absolutely perfect for me, but it doesn't. I use a lot of timers and stop watches for work and really need to see the current time as well.

    Thanks for the input!

    Have you looked at the GW-9400-1? It has all that you're asking for plus a lot more.

    My GW-9300CM has all the features you want, plus temperature, compass and moon graph.

    BTW, although Tough Solar has almost become the norm of G-Shock these days, but atomic really depends on models, some have (GWF-1000RD), some don't (GF-8250-nv2) while some models have both (GF-1000-NV2, GWF-1000-NV2).

    The Rangeman and Mudman are awesome (had them both), no doubt, just looking for something a little more low profile. My GW6900 is perfect minus the chronograph/timer issue I'm having. Thanks for the input guys!!

    You could try to find a 9200 Riseman is you want something more similar to a 6900 in size. Or you could get a dw-6900 if you don't mind dropping atomic/solar.

    Currently, the "atomic" feature is always paired with "solar." (There have been some non-solar atomic models in Casio's past, but none recently.)

    On the other hand, there ARE plenty of "solar only" models for people who don't want or need the atomic function! (Just off the top of my head, and not that they fit the OP's criteria: G6900, G9300, G5600, and I know there are some "Glides" as well.)

    +1 on this. I traded a Rangeman for a Riseman and never looked back.

    IMO look at the WS-220. It's price is cheap, around $35 or less on the bay. It is a proven beater that can take abuse. Sedi used, and may still use, it as his work watch while building decks and performing arborist work. It will display current time down to the second in both STW and CDT. It has the profile between a G-8900 and G-6900. The size is 51.7 X 49.8 X 14.6. A GW-6900's size is 53.2 X 50 X 17.7. It has 5 Alarms and the alarms, IMO, are louder than most solar G's. It has bigger digits than a G-6900 as well.

    Here is a picture of mine. It has held up well to yard work and other abuse.


    Do not look at the color, look at the specs for the watch. The blue one was the first one I saw on Casio's website.
