    Really Struggling on which to get GR-8900A-7 or DW6900NB-7

    Just looking for advice before I pull the trigger on which white watch to buy. I Like the look of the 8900 but a little concerned on the size. Looking for advice from anyone stuck with a decision like this, or who owns both and may have input. Thanks guys!

    Both would look good adorning your wrist. Based purely on looks and the size of the watch, I'd go with the 8900. But I've recently learned to look past the initial looks of a watch and instead at what it's potential is. I also look a bit at the module. For me, function wise, the 6900 is the better G purely because it has a repeating CDT. As far as style, I give props to the 6900 as well because of the NUMEROUS available spare parts. You can basically redesign a 6900 from the ground up w/ spare resin, different modules w/ different color lcds and different face plates.

    So initially,held side by side, id say the 8900. But wiser heads would prevail and I'd take the 6900 instead!

    Hi Birddog,

    Im fortunate enough to have both, and like them both alot, but must admit the 8900 gets more wrist time. It seems to have a real deep black neg display, and if your use to the xlrg series then the wrist presence shouldn't be an issue. But as you can see from the pic there's not really a lot in it.

    The Eminem White 6900 is the better-looking watch, imho.

    If you're looking for features, get the 8900.
    If you're looking for style, get the 6900.

    Just my 2 centavos.
