    My first G-Shock: the G-7900

    Hello everybody!

    I wanted to share this, because I would never have thought that I'd own a G-Shock some day. But WUS did it again: I got myself a G-7900 in the summer. At first I was looking at the GW-6900, but because I don't need solar power or radio control and I wanted something a bit more gadgety looking, I ended up with the G-7900.

    I thought I don't like G-Shocks in general, heck, I thought I hate them. But here I am, wearing one now and then. I'm still not a fan of the aesthetics, but the watch does have some kind of a weird "charisma" or something. It certainly gets attention, that's for sure.

    I do like the fact that it looks and feels well made. It's also nice that in spite of the size, it doesn't feel that huge on the wrist (although it certainly looks big). All the functions are nice, as well: I have used the timing functions quite often, and the watch has also taken the place of my alarm clock. I thought that the tide display is very cool, but when I got the watch I remembered that there actually isn't any noticeable tide on inland seas like the Baltic Sea. At least the moon phase indicator is usable.

    Here are two pictures I took last month:



    Here's a wrist shot.



    Here the G peeps up behind the leaves.

    congratulations!

    you got yourself probably the best g-shock currently available. crystal clear display and super features, combined with the best buttons i have seen (and pushed) to date. I do pretty much like black watches, but I can't stand red buttons, they drive me crazy so i went with the olive-green. it pretty fast became my favorite G:

    Welcome jrantasa 7900 has been pretty popular, it's tough, very functional,
    and a real attention grabber. Great choice to start with .

    Congrats on your first G-shock.

    One thing I really like about the G-7900 are the flaps behind the lugs that make the watch one of the most comfortable Gs that I've worn.

    7900 is amazing. I have the red and the blue. The blue seems to have disappeared from stores too.
