    Which Next G should I add?

    I'm looking to add an Atomic G-Shock to my collection and I have it down to two options:

    GW9200 Riseman

    GWX5600

    Right now I am actually leaning towards the GWX5600. Do people have experience with these watches in terms of atomic reception performance?

    I'd go with the Riseman.

    Anthony has one and posted a few pics here. However someone (was it Sedi) has one too and said it's one of the least legible displays of any Casio at the moment.

    Anthony's pics seem to also show that the digits are simply never visible!
    The Search function on vBulletin forums isn't very smart. If you want to search for a complete string in the G-Shock forum, or for posts which include multiple words, use Google, and enter site:forums.watchuseek.com/f17 into the search box. Then use normal google syntax after that to enter your search.

    Yeah unless you have a very good use for the tide graph I would definitely go with the master of G watch over a 5600 in this case.

    Rolex 116610LV HULK Submariner
    Rolex 216570 Explorer II Polar White
    Rolex 16610 circa 1991
    Omega Planet Ocean Chronograph 9300
    Grand Seiko SBGA029 Spring Drive Diver
    Casio GW-5000

    I have a gwx and I think the main thing is that it has poor visibility from the sides. But at a quick glance at that 20 degrees or whatever to take a peek at the time, its very visible. This is what it looks like most of the time, and this is just at some random angle while I read this thread. Feature wise, its also killer! current time visible in stopwatch, countdown, and alarm modes!

    Thanks for the feedback! I do love the look of both watches. Part of leaning slightly against the Riseman is that I really like the orange version and that one is solar but not atomic so I was thinking of getting the gwx5600 now (to add an atomic to the collection) and an orange riseman later (although it seems to be getting more scarce).

    Two new contenders have come up - Giez GS1000D-1 and Giez GS1100. I like the all-metal build of the GS1100 but I really like the day indicator on the GS1000D-1.
