    Yes, there are solar-only 5600s and 6900s; you can include the G-9010 and the G-9200, which are solar-only variants of the solar/atomic Mudman and Riseman respectively. Models like these are usually intended for regions that are supposed to have no atomic reception, such as the Middle East.

    Solar/atomic models are primarily sold in the US, Europe and of course East Asia (Japan and China) since they are within range of the existing atomic transmitters worldwide.
    DW-9051/2
    G-9200 Riseman
    G-9100 Gulfman
    G-9000MC-8D Mudman
    GW5600J
    GA-100A-9A

    Sucks to be without a G.

    Yes some are solar, some are solar & atomic.

    I believe the solar only models are sold in markets where atomic signals are unavailable, eg some parts of Asia/Australia.

    Japan and US should get the solar/atomic models.

    The solar models are:
    G-5600E-1
    G-5600A-3/7/9
    G-6900-1
    G-6900A-7/9

    The solar & atomic models are:
    GW-M5600A-3/7/9
    GW-6900A-7/9
    GW-6900-1
    GW-6900BC-1 (bracelet model with reverse display)

    The last number indicate color:
    1=black
    3=green
    7=white
    9=yellow

    Hope this helps.
