    When you see two models, same price, and you are so undecided

    Ok, buy 'em both, expecially when those are not expensive

    But i just want a white/black G-Shock and i'm torn between these two

    GD-X6900FB-7


    GR-8900A-7


    Similar colour scheme, same dimensions (53mm Vs. 54mm), both with negative display, same price (around €100 here)


    Which one should i choose? Which display is more readable?
    I don't mind Solar/no Solar as where i live i can only wear short sleeves a few months an year
    Please help

    I would choose GR-8900A-7 but simply because I like the shape better. also later you can get romanticator and devastator to make a small 8900-army... and give black/white transformer a cool nickname...

    Definitely the GDX. Love everything about the watch. And I love the weight of it. Makes it feel like a very solid watch!

    I love the 8900's.. But id go for the GDX, simply cause Solars are a pain. GDX has a 10yr battery life, even if you dont wear it for a while it's all good.. With the solar you have to worry about it slipping from H to L..

    Another vote for the GDX. Both are widely available, so get an 8900 as you can (I personally think the 8900 is a great looking watch). If you like it more than the GDX, you can "switch out" later.

    For looks I like the GR-8900 better. Bigger digits, therefore probably better to read, better grip on the buttons which are easier to push and the shape overall is more pleasing to my eye. However, I too much prefer non-solar watches so this will be a close call...


    cheers
