    Is there a G-Shock with these features?

    Looking for a durable every day wear G-Shock with the following:
    • Solar
    • Atomic
    • Carbon Fiber strap
    • usual things like stop watch, countdown, alarm
    • not fussed about ABC
    • prefer a dark blue colour.


    The GW-9330b-1jr would have been perfect, as I really like the colours on it too, but can't seem to get this limited edition anymore, other than paying stupidly high prices.

    I've found a few that have the solar and atomic, but the carbon fiber strap seems less common. The reason I'm interested in carbon fiber is because the strap loops on my existing watch keep breaking, so i figured something a bit more durable on the band side would help. I guess the other option is some sort of bracelet band?

    Alternatively, are replacement carbon fiber bands available that I could stick on the watch that has the other requirements, like a Mudman GW9300 ?

    I'm located in Australia, but I understand we pick up the atomic signal from Japan a bit.

    Any suggestions?

    GW-M5630D-1JR, I don't think it will be easy to pick up signal from Australia, I think it will be very difficult, so make sure you really research this.

    The GW-S5600 and GW-9300 both come with CF bands. Both are black though not blue. You can buy the GW-9300 CF strap on its own Rakuten: Band (belt) for Casio [CASIO] G-SHOCK GW-9300-1JF- Shopping Japanese products from Japan

    I assume by the "not fussed by ABC" you've discounted the GW-9400J?

    I did look at that one but would prefer a round face watch. I'd sooner the carbon fiber band than atomic if I had to choose between them.

    You could get a G-9300 (losing atomic) and the spare CF band then.

    Just don't want to pay extra for a feature that's not of great importance to me.

    Looks as though the strap loop is just resin. The loop is the part that keeps breaking on me.

    By the loop, are you referring to the keeper? If so, I'm not aware of any that are CF. Maybe you need to look at metal ones or as you said in your first post a bracelet.

    Yes the keeper. I found MTG910DJ-2A which is a bracelet and has solar + atomic. Also looked at the GW-9300GY-1JF on Rakuten and the image looks like the keeper is metal. img57950722.jpg

    Any opinions between those 2?

    Edit - looks like the MTG910 is also no longer available. doh!

    A regular GW-9300 already has a carbon fiber strap. But I can't remember if the strap keeper is carbon fiber.
