    Thumbs Up Anyone Familiar With This Model Casio?

    This one popped up on the bay yesterday and I have never seen one like it, not a US release maybe? It's a Marine Gear Forester model FTS-100. I think it looks really cool, big and chunky like the ole Gundams and at 35 bucks shipped new, I couldn't pass it up. I couldn't find another one anywhere on ebay. Also, I haven't been able to find the size dimensions of this model, would be curious to see if its as big as it looks.

    I have never seen this model before. It's sweet looking. But for $35.00 I don't blame you for picking it up. I would have also. Nice buy!!!!

    Great snatch. You can't lose at that price. Hope it reaches you in good shape.

    I bought one from the same eBay vendor and then sold it to another forum member. It's NOS. It will need new batteries, it takes two of the same size batteries that are in the PAG-40. In addition to the barometer, it has a daily alarm 24 hr stopwatch and EL backlight.

    Thanks all, I like it because it is an older model. Good to know about needing 2 batteries, thanks twincity. I will definately post up some pics when it arrives.

    I think it's a FTS-100: http://www.skywatches.com.sg/Casio_t...sio_FTS100.htm

    http://urun.gittigidiyor.com/CASIO-F...71959#aciklama

    Since it's shown together with an ACT-1100 + a few models which I think is sligthly newer, I think it's from approx. 1993-1996.

    Nice find - it seems to be somewhat similar to my Alti6000, so if you have questions about the functions, I might be able to help. On the Alti6000, it's well hidden how to swith between AM/PM and 24 hour format.
