...well strictly speaking, not a G-Shock specific thread, but all the same - this is what I'd most like from a Casio and / or G-Shock model.
A year or so back I bought one of these:-
That's a WVA-430, solar wavecepter. And very happy with it I was. Found the lume decent enough, and liked the fact that it had a second hand (relevant given the G-Shock I replaced it with...). I found the strap reasonably comfortable, it was robust, yet I got it for a sufficiently decent price (I paid about £66 (UK pounds) for it (delivered)) I considered it my rough-and-ready watch.
Fast-forward some months, and some international travel (I'll just add for context, I live in the UK), first China, then Hong Kong. The WVA-430 just has two channels, and in my instance, gets a signal in the UK or one from Germany. So in the far east, it was never going to sync time - but I could live with that, I knew it's limitations when I bought it.
A few months after that, I had a family holiday in Majorca, and it just about managed to receive time signal for sync whilst I was there.
I'd decided that the next watch I would get, would be a solar multiband 6. Other than the number of channels my WVA-430 could get time sync on, I was more than happy with it.
Earlier on this year, I bought one of these:-
Which I once again managed to get for a thoroughly decent price (only a little more than my WVA-430 cost me, I paid about £72 (UK pounds) for it (delivered)). Which had all the features I wanted - solar, multiband 6, rough-and-ready, not a windowsill queen. I gave my WVA-430 to my son (at 8 years old, he's well chuffed with it).
And in fairness, I've been happy with it. Although, I have to say, I didn't find it as exciting as my WVA-430. I miss the second hand, don't know why, I just do. And I prefer the single, yet larger LCD display on the WVA-430. I also like the more simple look of the 430, and the way it looks more like a sporty analogue watch, than a chunky G-Shock.
So I guess my perfect Casio would be, this:-
but simply also be a multiband 6. I suspect that's a bit to specific - but is there anything like that?
