    available now? Define "coolest" as you like.

    I've got the Riseman model ( http://bit.ly/sC7kL2 ), but I'm interested in some of the other reverse-LED models for example.

    What else is out there?

    Thanks!
    Chris

    I have a G-9000MS-1DR Mudman, and I love it. I also have a DW6900-1 and the Mudman is smaller on the wrist.

    I really like the Men in Smoky Gray series. I have the G9300 Mudman and I'm saving for a MISG Riseman!

    Agreed. I just got the MISG Mudman and have the MISG Riseman on the way. I am also quite fond of the "King" (GX-56) series but they are quite large on the wrist so might not be for everyone.

    I find the proliferation of cool G-shocks annoying. I started using G-shocks because they were tough watches that survive the real world abuses of working people. I just need a large date and time display, and since the introduction of indiglo-style usability, a backlighting button. But when I (rarely) need a new watch, nearly all of the G-shocks at local stores have much of their screen space taken up with mostly useless moving LCD segments that seem to serve no purpose but to show the watch is running.

    I get the need for additional features, and would love to have them included in my watch if I needed them and was willing to pay the price. Years back when I was scuba diving, I looked in vain for a Frogman model. But there are too many of the "basic function" models that devote much of the screen to the cool bling and not enough to the actual time and date.

    I love this model. I was looking at it just last night on the G-Shock website. It is sweet in gray!

    Really love the SS look, mid-classy, mid-sport.


    EDIT: model number is G-520SCD-1

    If you want to define cool as rare, I collect some of the rarest. Baby-G Frogmen.
