    It's the module functions that make it "rescue." A 1,000 stopwatch (2 of them actually) and a CDT that shows the current time, plus the tide and moon graph for rescue mission presumably. No axe in the backlight, that was the Men In Rescue Orange series that have the orange bezels/straps and axe in the backlight. Casio likes to keep things confusing for us. :)

    EDIT: and yes, both of those are G-7900 rescue series but you can prob find better prices over on ebay. :)

    The "Rescue" designation is mainly marketing, but it is a tough watch with desirable features for search and rescue people (I was on a mountain search and rescue team). Those links are both for the same watch.

    Yeah, I think it's run is over but you might be able to find some on-line, or on the sales forum here.

    Found them all at the mall today and got to see them ..I was really leaning towards the 7900 but think I might change my mind to the rescue mudman and go with a 7900 later on since they arnt a special series that might be harder to find

    Miami Dadeland mall Macey's had a bunch of the new models mainly the 6*** and the 7900 and some pathfinders.. then right outside there was a kiosk that had all of the master series. riseman, gulfman, mudman, and then had everything macys had..pretty cool was really happy to see the rescue series in person.
