    Is there any Master of G that is NOT Solar?

    Hi,
    I am looking for finding a Master of G that is not solar as my experience with Solar has been awful. I own a GW 7900 that goes into low every few days because I dont wear it everyday. I have tried the charge outside, by the window, etc...works for a while but since I do not use it during the day (mainly at night), gets to low WAY too often..
    I read that I may have been unlucky with a bad batch so I bought a rangeman green with reverse display. Returned the watch because I did not like the sub par visibility but loved the feel of the Master. I am now looking for any master that will NOT be solar as even the rangeman was still moving to medium after week of high (battery level)
    It was better that the 7900 but still, I dont like that technology as I cannot even 'wind' it up when I need to. Sooo....I am interested in a Master G with quartz or even better a Frogman with quartz. Any recommendation of a model I can easily find? (I know Frogman will be hard but I am still hopefull!)

    Thanks much
    F.

    All Master of G are solar. What functions do you require? Compass, etc?

    Not a Master of G, but a damn nice non-solar G-Shock is GA-1000-4 Orange













    Mine

    Again, Not a Master of G, the GLX-150 has tides and moon phase.



    GLX-150B-3



    These turn up real inexpensive sometimes. They were too low priced to pass up, under $50US.

    Not all Master of G are solar. The Mudman G-9000 uses a CR2025 battery.

    The GA1000 and GA1100 models were originally the Casio Aviator series, but now since the naming changes they are part of the Gravitymaster series. So, yes, they are master of G's.

    Here's the GA1100, a slight redesign of the GA1000.

    G-9000 is a fine watch and a good suggestion.

    The whole "Master of G" thing is of course a marketing term.
    If i remember right, back in 2008 or so when the G-9000 and the G-9100 were released they were marketed as "Master of G", too.
    The mudman because of its mud resist design and the Gulfman because of its titanium components.
