    I love this watch. I own a g-9000 the green one with the reverse display, it takes a little getting used to, but you will adjust. I also own a solar rally mudman, which is probably going to run forever, thus preventing me from ever looking at new watches again. I really believe as long as it gets sun once in a while, it could run for 100 years.

    I've got the beige one. It's on semi-permanent loan to my husband. He borrowed it one day and didn't give it back. He's hard on things, but hasn't destroyed it yet, so it is tough.

    Despite all the hype over "OFFICIAL WATCH OF THE NAVY SEALS!!1!ONE!", and at last as of when I retire from the Army in 2000, it was common knowledge that Casio G-Shocks were the only watch US Army Ranger School Cadre approved of. (The Army does not endorse commercial products, though...)

    Reverse display means they turned the little polarizing film under the crystal of the watch 90 degrees, which makes a neutral background and black #s reverse to black background and neutral#s. You can do this to any digital watch.

    Bought one of these about a month ago, really nice watch and the negative display is perfectly readable.

    And if you go see the totally Hoo-ah! movie Act Of Valor you'll see many Casio G-Shocks and no Luminoxes...

    Good choice. Been rocking a Mudman for a few years now. Still on original strap too. Alternate between that and my Lumi with a G10 strap. Can't really fault either tbh.
