    My new GW-6900-1

    I love this watch. The solar panel is so dreamy with it's black-purplessence. Are there more with this sort of panel color?

    I was caught hugging my girlfriend and staring into my watch over her shoulder. I was saying "I love you", but not to her, to my new GW-6900. OOOpppss!

    That is a nice one! I have really enjoyed mine! My GW-9000 Mudman has a similar face panel look to it. Also my GW-200 Frogman watches do as well.

    Nice one ! Maybe you should change your nick in 'Gfanatic' . Even if the 6900s are highly uncomfortable on my wrist I might still grab the yellow GW-6900 - it looks really great and I miss a yellow G in my collection since I sold the DW-6900 'FIFA'. As for the solar-cells - I think the GW-9000A Mudman has solar-cells that look similar:

    Have to say the GW-6900 is a keeper for me too. Pretty much perfect size and very comfortable.

    All of the solar digital G's and Protreks I've seen have the purple luminescence. I assumed it was the solar panel.

    Think a yellow or white GW-6900 is next on my list. White would be cool for winter and I'll need a yellow for next spring/summer

    Looks great on you!
    .
    All solar G's have that purple colored look when the light strikes the solar panel at just the right angle. It's simply easier to see on a G-6900 or GW-6900 because of it's clean display area. It's the composition of the solar panel.

    I could not agree more. If not for my G-7900 which has had lots of wrist time as it's my newest, the G-6900 is my favorite. The comfort level is very high as well after I installed the bracelet which works better than a strap for me, since I have a large wrist.

    Here's a few more pics and the link for the bracelet if you want to buy one. It's the only place that has them. I just cannot say enough good things about this bracelet.
