    Reccomend me a model

    Hi All,
    I've been lurking for a while, and been over lurking @ the Dive forum.

    I'm looking for a G w/the following:
    analog, but plain
    alarm
    backlight, or good lume
    solar

    I've been eyeing the Giez GS 1100-1 but I,m skeptical, any info pros,cons
    Please help

    Mike

    Yeah, I second Mansrow's recommendation. Giez is the best choice for your needs.
    I am worth more than any item in my watch box.

    That's an MTG which will cost about twice what a Giez goes for, but if you're keen, it's probably worth the extra $$$.

    The Giez are similar looking 5 motor analog watches which are solar and atomic, but just have a slightly reduced quality construction going on most reports. See here for example...

    Both types popular here though.

    Analogue?
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...
