    I don't think so. Amazon shows it "out of stock" and they don't know when it will be back in stock. I found a pricey one on the bay, though, here:

    Thank you, I'm flattered, but, please don't click any "Likes" for me (unless there's a prize for "most likes")?

    Not in production anymore and while the orange dial is really pretty, it's awful legibility wise. It's a mirror LCD so if you're not watching it from the right angle, hell knows what time it is

    I don't have a watch with Orange LCD, but I have 2 Gs that has pink LCD. Baboblue was right about legibility of the numerals. You can read them in good lighting at the right angle, in all other situation ... that's what the EL is for. AND, in some lighting condition, with or without the EL, you can't make out the time at all. haha

    all the disadvantages of a mirror display without the triple sensors ;)


    seriously tho, i have a gd100ww which uses mirror digits and its not that bad most of the time. no worse than an average neg display.

    I used to have said orange 240. Sob. Legibility wasn't a problem tho I do confirm the mirroring effect. I never had to ask a stranger the time because my watch, well, you know.


    It was lovely. Wanted the green one too but in the end had to sell it for financial reasons. Like my 5630D thirty stars, which also shared the same mirrored lcd BTW.

    The 7900's are my favourites, although the 56s are currently my focus. But nothing is excluded, except pink Risemans.

    I really think they could have come up with a better variant, where the LCD background is tinted orange, without any mirroring effect or reverse LCD. The GD100HC looks terrible, IMHO.
