    What are you seeking in a watch? Solar charging? Atomic time sync? World-time?

    What size of watch do you want? The M100B is rather small, compared to the GA-100/110.

    Almost obligatory link to great "how to choose a G-Shock" and overview of available features: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f43/sta...ck-850524.html

    The only thing those 5 watches seem to have in common are "they're a G-Shock" and "they were apparently found on Casio's European website, since the model numbers all end in "1ER." Beyond that, there's a lot of variety: analogs, all-digital, solar, non-solar, atomic, regular.

    For me, I want my G Shock watches to be both atomic and solar. Cheers, Bill P.

    Re: Wich to buy? Advise needed.....

    i picked the panda 8900, nice big digits, great backlight and all the features I need. not a huge fan of the GA series as such. plus the 8900 is black and white and would match everything.




    7900 would be my 2nd choice, but blue won't match everything.. the wings annoy some people, the 4 fake screws annoys some more people. lol so keep those things in mind.

    I picked the 7900NV because I reckon the navy blue is not that difficult to match with clothing at all. Plus, I like the GW-7900's module and the overall looks of the watch. The wings help with preventing flopping of tall watches but makes the watch sit a little higher too. I have thoughts of picking up this one too shortly after just buying my GW-7900B and the GW-7900RD which is still at the post office as I type this. Oh, and of course the reason for this choice was because it fits relatively well on my small wrist.

    If i had a choice i would like solar and atomic timekeeping (or gps-timekeeping, if such a thing exist in a g-shock), but sadly i live in a country where only a few models are sold/imported, as you can see on the following link : Casio G-Shock Horloges | Casio Webshop
    So the watches listed are the nicest(IMHO) ones available here.....I prefer to buy at a physic store (my friend is a jeweler) rather than buying "online"....
    Kind regards,

    No need for me to count penny's, if that answers your question, i can buy what i want, when i want. The fact that i used a Rolex GMT2 for years and years as a beater (and i aint talking about "beating" it @ the office, but beating it in the rough life i live) should tell enough about my budget.....
