    Dual Illuminator on Mudman G-9000

    I received my black G-9000 today and I have once question. I see on Casio's website it says DUAL illuminator. What and where is the dual illuminator? I press the (L) button backlight and the face glows and I know you can do it for 3 or 5 seconds. But what else is suppose to light up? I thought the outer ring where it says, STW1, STW2, Reverse, Forward was suppose to light up, or am I wrong? Thanks!!

    Hi Howard,

    How areyou. Are you happy with your new G? The Dual Illuminator gets it's name because not only the LCD is lit, but also the inner part with the lettering. Check my nexct picture. You can now clearly see the difference.



    Cheers,

    Sjors

    I AM STUPID! I never went into a dark room and tried the backlight. I just went into the bathroom and tried it, yes the outer ring lit up. Thanks Sjors! You are always on the ball! I like the watch very much, it has A LOT of different options to customize it the way you want. Take care. I think it is time to get the GW-9000 now.

    I'm glad you like it. Actually I think it's better than the GW-9000 actually. Gaining the Atomic receiver (5 band!), you loose one stopwatch and only get a 60 minute timer. Still a great model! I was wearing the GW-9000 today!

    Oh yeah, it also has a normal EL -Backlight.

    Cheers,
