    Confused Newbie questions about the: GW-6900BC

    Hi all,

    This is my first post on this great forum (I'm been reading only for a few weeks) and I hope that some of you might be able to help me out.

    I've been researching on what watch for some time now and purchased a inexpensive Casio to help me in the waiting periode (A168WA-1YES) and I instantly feel in love with the EL backlight.

    So, to make a very long story short, I've opted for a Casio G-Shock watch and currently are looking a few different models; one of them being a GW-6900BC. I really like the negative display and the steel bracelet.

    And for this watch I have two questions (at least ):

    1)
    Is this the same watch on all of these pages. I'm asking since I do not entirely understand the different model types yet:

    Watch Shock: Casio: G-Shock GW-6900BC-1 GW-6xx photos, videos and specifications GW6900BC-1 | Watch Archive
    Chino Watch: GW-6900BC/GW-M5600BC
    Amazon UK: Casio GW6900BC-1 Men's Black Resin World Timer Solar Watch: Amazon.co.uk: Watches

    2)
    I've read a few posts from 2009 stating that Chino Watch is a good and solid place to shop online. Is this still the case?

    I have one. I saw it online and bought it immediately. The negative display was a little hard to read at first, but I got used to it. The alarms are useless as you can't hear them unless the watch is close to your ear. The atomic function works well as does the solar recharging. All of the watches on the web sites look like mine.

    Yes, those are all the same watch, and yes, Chino is a top seller.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I own a GW 6900bc and it it a great watch. Just to let you know the bracelet is not all steel, the smaller links are steel and the large links are made out of resin.

    There are a bunch of great deals on eBay right now for this watch, so you may want to check them out.

    But with a metal core underneath the resin.
