I was at the G-shock store today to try on the new MTG and MRG GPS models.
I was surprised to see they had the Basel MTG-G1000BS for $1900. The MRG with the black bezel and silver bracelet was $2600.
I have to say the MRG is really impressive. It's light and the build quality seems super high.
I did notice the crown was wobbly as others have pointed out but I believe the suspicions are correct that it's probably for shock absorption. The 24 min timer is really silly, but other than those two "features" it seems like a great watch.
On the other hand the limited nature of the BS seems appealing but the size is quite large.
Given how close the prices any thoughts on which one to get?
