Fantastic no-nonsense G-Shock, 15 Oct. 2012
Has everything it needs and nothing it doesn't, together with the classic looks and value for money this is quite possibly the best G-Shock available.
I like to have a digital watch for work and have tried quite a few trying to find the perfect one (I'm a bit of a watch addict too!) Solar powered and radio controlled are big plus points and I wouldn't be without them now.
Of the many G-Shocks I tried before this one were the GW-M5610-1ER but I was disappointed with the fit/finish of the watch as the joint between the strap and bezel was quite shoddy to be honest. The GW-6900-1ER seems to be much better built and is cheaper! I was at first put off when looking at pictures as the digital display seems quite small compared to the overall face size of the watch but in reality it is fine and perfectly readable in all conditions. (I also tried negative display models which look cool but are not very legible in low light conditions).
I also tried a Riseman and although it looks great I couldn't justify the extra expense for functions I wouldn't use.
All in all for the money you can't go wrong with the GW-6900-1ER
