I know this forum is about Casio G-shocks, but I have a Casio question that is not G-shock related. I don't want to waste anyone's time, but I think you would be the best people to answer my query.
Do the corner LEDs in Casio digital watches illuminate the face so that they can be easily read? As I understand it, most cheaper Casios use LEDs as opposed to electro-luminescent backgrounds. I have tried to do due diligence and I found an image of the illumination provided here: casio w-800 - Watchuseek . To my mind, although the photo makes the display appear illegible, it must surely be readable, or it would be pointless. Can anyone clarify this please?
Also, what is the difference between these two models? There appears to be a difference in the colour of the line around the face. Also there appears to be a difference in the colour of the LCD background - is this just an effect of the photo or is it real?

This thread makes me believe the second one is indeed a coloured LCD Colo[u]red Casio LCDs - Why?
And in the very unlikely possibility that someone has both the models mentioned could they say which one they prefer and why - or anyone with the relevant knowledge, really (Also, gold vs. blue - who wins?)
Thanks for your time - I hope I'm not wasting it
