I (think) that I'm slowly moving out of dive watches back into G's and I've been eyeing these 4 XL size g-shocks. Right now, my main G is a GW-2310FB all black stealth. I have another DW-5200 incoming to keep my first company and just picked up a GX-56 in orange. I should also note that I'm pretty excited about the new XL 6900 models and would love to pick up either the white, jelly with silver, or the yellow one....
Here are the ones I've been thinking about and some thoughts. (pics via the interwebs)
I really like the hands and how they pop on the all black background. My only concern is the shade of yellow. Sometimes it's called mustard. My ideal yellow (I think Casio calls it positive yellow) is on the yellow Raysman....
I really like white watches, glossy is the best, and love how the gold pops on the black and is a great accent. I think the legibility (actually reading the time) would be the worst on this one.
I'm not a huge red fan, but that's not to say I dislike it at all. I love the pop from the "eyes" and the green on the face, and yellow on buttons and letters. I am told red looks good on me. Not sure how good the negative display on this one is. I do think that this would be the rarer version and that I doubt I'd see anyone else with this G.
I love the green/teal color and how the white compliments the green. I think this is a great summer watch, but not sure for year round rotation.
If I missed a great GA/GD watch with some nice pop, please post pics!
Thanks for your time
