    Question Second GD100: positive or negative display???

    Hi folks,

    I wanna buy a second GD100, after the 100MS I have got few weeks ago.
    Although a bit bulky for my wrist, I really love his module with the multiple time zones.

    Now, the question is: I go for the standard display (1AER) or for the full stealth one (1BER)??

    The stealth one looks much better, also it would be my first G with negative display...but I am a bit concerned about it....for the same reason I want it...ehehehe...having no experience out in the filed, I do not know if I am gonna like it or not.

    Price wise, no difference between the two (around 70€ shipped).

    Thanks.

    As I may have slightly mentioned before (), I'm no fan of negative displays.
    They look cool but are terrible to read.
    Cheers!

    Which ms did you get? The 1 or the 3? I'm in the minority on this, but i say neg all the way! You already own one, do you want another or do you want to mix it up and see what you like?

    Cabatisto, cool watch! That is the ms-1. To me that is a positive display. My gd100ms-3 is waiting for pickup at the post office (i HATE having packages mailed to me here). It is a negative display version of your watch. If i pick it up tomorrow i'll post a wrist shot here for you. Which negative display gshock are you considering?

    I am new on here and have a few G-shocks, but I just picked up a GD-100MS-3ER and I can not wear it I have to have the light on to read anything on it, don't know if it is my eyes or if this is common.

    WELCOME!
    That's a bit strange. Even if the 100MS display is not as good as a standard positive, I have no issues at all.

    Welcome Glock! I just picked up my ms-3 today. You're gonna find negative displays are OK for you or they really are not. I would venture the majority on WUS are against negative displays. This is one reason i suggest people see one in person before buying. Personally, i love them.
