    Is this a digital G Shock with negative display, or an analog model?  Is
    your displeasure a "legibility" issue, or are you implying that this has
    something to do with signal reception?  (I'm pretty nearsighted, and
    prefer analog black faces with bold white hands and markers, myself.  I
    have a harder time acquiring the time on a digital watch without
    conscious mental effort.)
    
    I don't have many data points, and live quite a bit closer to Colorado
    than you do, but find my (newer, larger) Citizen synchs very reliably
    when positioned properly on my nightstand, whereas my (older, smaller) G
    Shock doesn't always find a signal at night even on my windowsill.
    
    If I were to live in Sydney such concerns would be moot; so I consider
    myself geographically privileged.
