    BTW, the GWX-5600 module 3222 does allow customizing the high tide time, so this may help a bit. My Gulfman GW-9110 and W-S210 only allow picking a home city and setting a high tide time to customize the tide data, so it seems that the GWX-5600 is even a bit better in this regard, since you can fine tune the location somewhat more. My older-model G-7900 and GLX-5600 use the lunitidal interval and longitude to calculate the tide data.
    Thanks Gary. Google will still find it.

    I looked back at the manual (3215) for the GWX-5600WA-7, and turns out when I looked at it the first time I missed a whole section on tides. They have two different sections in the manual that are not adjacent, so I missed the one I wanted. So yes I can set a high tide time for a location associated with the home city. That's what I wanted to do all along.

    Maybe I'm missing something but not sure what you mean by saying the GWX-5600 allows the location to be fine tuned a bit more.. It does have some pre-set locations in there associated with the home city, but none of them are very close to me. So I don't see that as a real benefit.

    I'll get the local tide info online as I've done before and set the high tide time according to it. When I've done this with my Frogman watches before, they track those tide intervals very well. Hopefully this one will as well.

    What I meant is that the GW-9110 only allows selecting a home city for the tide data, while the GWX-5600 seems to have sub-locations available. For the home city of LAX, there are several of these sub-locations. However, the main fine tuning feature on any of the newer models is being able to set the first high tide time, which the GWX-5600 can do.

    Edit: I wonder what's different between module 3215 and 3222. When I look up GWX-5600, I see the module number 3222.

    Edit 2: I guess they are just the positive and negative LCD versions of the same module.

    Not wanting to be left out of the purple lovefest....

    I love my DW-8200-1A Frogman so much that I took a bit of a gamble on this pre-owned piece that was up on fleabay. Frankly speaking, the seller's photos were terrible, but his price was reasonable, so I bought the watch based on his high seller rating and assurance that it was in good condition.

    Needless to say, I was very pleased when the watch arrived at my office this afternoon with little more than a few nicks and stains on the resin. (What I had initially thought were scratches on the glass just washed right off with a rinse of tainted LA city water. )

    Will probably swap in some new resin at some point, but for now I'm glad to add the DW-8200BK-1JF "Real Black" Frogman to my Casio family.

It was Grandfather's and when Father gave it to me he said I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire.... I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all your breath trying to conquer it."

    It's a Marlin but a Timex Handwind Reissue of the 1960s Marlin



    Note the drilled lugs.

    This is the most beautiful watch I've ever seen, hands down. I'm in love! Ordered some custom bezels and straps to go with my new toy.
