I am looking for a G-shock that has following functions (sorted by the importance):
1. Large LCD display or larger font than 6900.
2. Must display the current time in Stopwatch mode.
3. 24-hours Stopwatch (60 - 99 min stopwatch function is useless to me)
4. countdown Timer - prefer 24 hours one.
5. Auto EL light
6. Solar or 10 years battery
=> Atomic (in US if that matters)
my newbie story:
I bought GW530. It has everything I dreamed for.. but I found out that it has no countdown timer I love the big LCD font though.. so I keep it.
then, I bought G-2300. It has good basic function and I found out it does not display the current time in Stopwatch mode... doh! I love the design so I still keep it.
and, I bought GW1200. It is my first ana/digi so I expected too much.. lol. The problem is 99min stopwatch function. and it has reverse display on tiny LCD screen. besides, minute hand convers tiny LCD screen every 30 min LOLLLL. even I loved Full LED light and very cool design I sold it.
If I can mix-match I would put gw-530 module with CDT into G-2300 case
I like new gulfman design(Japan model). I am not sure if that has everything I listed above. Can anyone confirm? or you can suggest any G-shock.
I looked G7700 and it has almost everything!.. but.. it take 2 batteries every 2 years.. yike.
no mudman plz.. I can't press the button easily. so I gave up.
