    Need a grey g-shock for a friend

    A buddy of mine who is a budding WIS came to me today about a g-shock. He's got a nice bronze Halios Tropik, an all black Diesel fashion watch and a couple running watches. This G will be his regular watch as he doesn't want to wear the Halios everyday.
    He tried on my GD-350 and liked the negative display but said that he'd prefer a darker grey color, matte finish over glossy and something not quite as thick and no wider than the GD-350.

    What are some ideas that are popping into your G-brains? As far as features he's not too specific but I think solar is a plus.

    Thanks
    Neil

    GW-5510-1JF

    I don't think it is really matte but it isn't shiny. Is smaller all around than the GD-350 and has the double tang strap.

    EDIT: Missed the bit on the negative display.

    Re: Need a grey g-shock for a friend

    Great suggestions. I think he wants very little bling or color. I did remember this GA-100C8 which I think is the perfect grey for him. But it's got the blue hands. I personally love them, but we'll see.



    Also the GD-400MB is very cool. In certain light, it can look dark grey. I'm sure we'll try to see these in person if we can, but the 2 suggestions so far are one that we're on my radar. Plus, the textured band adds some cool dimension!



    Thanks
    Neil
