    What Casio am I looking for?

    Just picked up a [1545] DW-5600E, which is very much like a couple G-Shocks I had, like, 20-30 years ago. Things have changed a bit, though -- models I had were metal puck assembly with screw down case back and pushed into a rubber case; this new version has a resin case and the case back is stamped, with four screws.

    Does Casio still make the G-Shock I remember from back when, and if so, what model?

    Also, does not appear to have dual / second time feature. Perusing the Casio website, they are pretty sparse with their functions descriptions, so I turn to WUS...

    Watch I'm looking for has:
    - dual time / world time
    - stopwatch with interval timer
    - (optional) tough solar
    - (optional) 3-hand analog time display with LCD sub-screen. But full LCD considered if it has all the other features.

    What models should I be looking at...?

    If you'd enjoy a classic square with a steel case underneath the soft bezel, including a screwback and Tough Solar, it's pretty much GW-5000 for you. (An excellent choice, in my opinion!) Also look into all the variants of the more recent GMW-B5000; it's a Bluetooth enabled design with also a stainless steel outer construction and bracelet. It gets pricier than the GW-5000 as well, though. Note that you can customize the GW-5000 with additional steel parts, too, but that goes into the hobbyist / aftermarket / unofficial territory, as you need to hunt for the parts and install them, and it factors into the total price and effort, etc :)

    My recommendation is the GAW-100. Solar, radiocontrolled, dual time (you can set the analog hands to one zone and have another in the digital LCD), stopwatch... It has 2 hands instead of 3, but it is cheap (around 120€).

    There are several variations


    Mine has a blue bezel and a positive digital display

    This one has all of the features you are looking for. It also has moon/tide as well. It's my only G-Shock and I absolutely love it!
