Hi,

What do you guys think about this watch? Is it good for all purpose?

Any photos for viewing?

Regards,

Tommy

If you want the tidegraph and moon phase features, it's a very fine watch.

It also benefits from a 24-hour countdown timer, and five alarms (including the facility to set an alarm by date).

The manual is attached.

It also has tough solar, which is lacking in the new Gulfmans that have tidegraph and moonphase. Plus it's a great looking watch.

It's my favorite of my 3, a Raysman, 25th Froggie, and my 9700. Been through hell and back. Just replaced the bezel after 7 years. Bands about 2 years ago. I was a daily beater for about 6 years. Get it.

Ha ha, Bajachild is the Ambasador of the DW-9700:-!

Cheers,

thanks, sjors,

i bought my dad a 9700 because he boats as much as i do. i think it will come in handy for him, too. he's off for the Oregon coast to do some salmon fishing. hope it works for him to monitor the tides and the moon phases (2 of the most important elements of sport fishing). Mike:)

Hi,

Thanks for the opinions. for sure I will get a DW-9700 if I manage to find it in Malaysia.

Last nite i went to a watch shop in my area, they sell DW-8600(fisherman) I.C.E.R.C version and normal version, Riseman as well. So, I asked them whether they have DW-9700 or not, but need to ask the distributor. Will call me back this morning. A bit worry about the price. I think it will more than my budget.

If it is over my budget, I am thinking to choose Protrek PRS-500T. What do you guys think?

But I got a question over here, can I change the setting for all the preset points in multi-time mode to other places in Dw-9700?

One more worry is the replacement part if spoilt for DW-9700. Anybody experience this before?

Regards,

Tommy
