Can you recommend any? I have a Citizen and a G Shock. Would like add a different manufacturer to my small collection.

- Suunto (atomic for sure, solar I think)
- Seiko (Spirit, Brightz, etc)
- New York Standard Watch Company (eBay brand I think, I've seen a few but wouldn't defend them)

I've asked in the suunto section and there are no atomic versions. Or solar. They run on battery and sometimes GPS.

I've been trying not to buy a seiko! They are so popular, but I guess thats hypocritical of me considering I own a citizen and a casio!

I'll check out that new work brand.

I don't think there is anything 'popular' about the Spirit or Brightz lines for Seiko - very doubtful anyone on the street would recognize them as Seiko watches (without reading the branding, of course).

Atomix, a sort of house brand solar/atomic (here).

Maximilian Atomic, but not solar (here at the WUS sponsor, Long Island Watch).

Are Junghans any good. I had a look at them before and thought they are quite expensive.

Junghans make a couple of models in atomic/solar league but very expensive, way over $1000. Recent models are multi-frequency while some old ones are limited to US or EU etch. I have one ceramic Mega Solar/Atomic which retailed $1950 several years ago. It is very simple, with no multi functions like the Casio or the Citizen. Junghans watches are made in Germany, which maybe drive the price up so high. I have no idea how reliable Junghans watches are though as they are not popular at all. It is very hard to come by. Mine works fine so far but with one minor gripe I have. Hands do not align well with markers, way off. This is why I do appreciate Casio's Touch Movement and Citizen's Perfex Multi 3000 with hand correction capability. Junghans though does have very neat and clean dial design in my book.
