    Size comparison of 6900 vs 8900?

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to get an idea of the size differences between the 6900's (liking the GLX6900) and the 8900, (specifically the GW or GWX8900).
    I don't think I'm a fan of the very large watches, such as the rangeman, though I do have a big wrist. I have a 7900 coming in another week or so and I know that one is pretty big but I'd love to get a comparison of the 2 mentioned above.
    Also, I know in some of the styles, the X designates an extra large variant, is this the case with these two? I'm looking to add a little more color and kind of like the tide and moon graph as a fun factor.
    By the way, I have a G7710 which is the perfect size for me, at least strap wise, super comfy.
    Thanks!

    Thanks Ash, 6900 definitely looks smaller hopefully though it has a longer strap than the 5600's.

    the 8900 is almost as big visually and physically as the rangeman. nice big digits tho
    the 6900 feels alot smaller and wears smaller too. i dont have a 5600 to compare but youve gotta have one helluva tree stump or a wrist if the 6900 isnt big enough for you!

    Hey a GWX-8900! I thought nobody else had one of those. It's only one of the best surfing G-Shocks ever, but it sold so poorly that CASIO didn't release new colorways the following year like usual. Oh well.

    The 8900 is a "Big Case" design but it looks a bit smaller than say the GD-100 because it has large cut-outs around the buttons. It's a good choice if easy button pressing is high on your priorities list. All 8900 G-Shocks have the same case, bezel and case-back. Usually the same buttons as well. Front facing light buttons are boss (for most people).

    I almost never wear any watch other than a G-Shock. My collection is listed here-->http://watchshock.com/collection/1471/

    Other watches: Invicta Sub-Aqua Venom 5733 & Coalition Forces 0225, Suunto Vector, Traser Mil-G Type 6 P6600 Celebration Edition, Luminox 3059.SAR and a few cheap Timex & Armitron

    I bought my GWX-8900 after seeing your detailed review of it on YouTube... Most of the G-shock's that I have in my collection are because of your exceptional reviews on YouTube...
