    Need some advice.

    I know that this is a helpful and informative group here, and you have never let me down in the past.

    I'm in the market for a G. I am more of a casuaul guy. I'm looking for the following:
    Solar and Atomic
    Large digit display digital only
    Hinged band like DW9052 not stiff like DW6900.
    G-button on the front
    Must have CDT.
    Must be positive display.
    Fairly newer model for replacement parts, I plan to have this a long time.

    Thank you in advance and pictures with feature lists are most welcome.

    I appreciate the reply but the band fits on it the same as a 6900. Otherwise I think it's spot on.

    I would like to recommend you the GD-350-1C, but it is neither atomic nor solar.....

    CASIO G-SHOCK GD-350-1C Big Case Vibrator Series GD-350-1C | eBay

    ....on the other hand, it houses a very large lithium cell (CR2032) which will keep that watch running for a decade at least and a direct (instant) access to the countdown timer (24hours, adjustable to the second) and of course it has a - in my opinion - most useful vibe alarm. Whether radio reception is necessary for a modern day quartz watch is open to debate, speaking for myself I can say to 100% it is not, but YMMV.


    cheers

    I second this choice, and the parts are readily available and easy to replace. You can actually replace the bezel without removing the band, just the wings) The band is super comfortable (it also lays flat, not fixed and stiff like on other G's), also the CDT counts down by 1/10th seconds if that's needed.

    Re: Need some advice.

    GW-7900 is another option. Digits aren't huge, but not tiny either. 24 hr CDT, solar/atomic, hinged band with wings (can be removed)

    https://www.amazon.com/Casio-GW-7900.../dp/B0039YOHTY

    Can be found cheaper on eBay
    Encourage someone. The world has enough critics.

    Re: Need some advice.

    A MTG-910 will fit all your needs. One of the largest digits on a G, solar/atomic, CDT...altough you mention a strap and this has a bracelet
