    Yet another help me to choose/find thread

    Hi,

    After scratching accidentally the bezel of my GW9000, and being afraid to scratch my other G's (solar 5600, I am currently looking for a G or non-G to do all the dirty jobs ...

    Here are my needs :
    - Long battery life, 10 years would be perfect ...
    - Water resistant to 100 m, if non-G
    - as black as possible, a rather stealth look
    - reasonable size (if non-G),
    - cheap, 30-40 usd (I am located in Europe, that means 10-20 usd shiping fees)

    The Gulfman (7 year battery) is too classy


    The W-800HG-9AVEF is too small

    Borowed from Casio website

    The W-740-1VS is nice, unfortunately, I can't find it, nether at a good price and the battery seems to be 2 years

    Borrowed from an ended ebay auction

    Just get yourself a G-2300 model: solar powered with large capacity, and tough as boots. I have used mine to renovate half a house and it came through looking almost new. Only $40US new.

    Good idea ! I saw the G2300-9V for 42 usd on ebay.

    Any experience about the HDD600G-9AV ?



    I wonder if the casio sport are almost as tough s the G's ...

    I agree a G-2300 or G-2310 would be perfect. Maybe the toughest G-Shocks ever made.
