    Finally got my MTG 1000 BR!

    Howdy guys!

    I FINALLY got my MTG 1000 BR in black IP/rose gold! I'm super pumped and I'm really impressed with the watch itself. I have pictures below but alas I don't have my digital camera today so these are sub-par cameraphone images, I apologizes for the poor resolution.

    What I'm NOT so impressed with about this watch is the packaging. From seeing pictures on the web and watching Doug's YouTube video it looks like this watch usually comes packaged in a nice little box and is strapped around a small cushion. Mine came in a thin, flimsy folded-together carboard box and a piece of foam. Given what I saw for the other MTG 1000's I figured this one would have the same presentation, especially since the MSRP is $100 higher.

    Has anyone else ordered an MTG1000 straight from Casio USA and gotten similar packaging? I figure maybe it's a USA/Japan difference in packagaing but that's just a thought...

    [Upon review (or PREview rather) of my post it's become clear that my images aren't rotated here like they are on PhotoBucket, again my apologies, this is my first attempt at PhotoBucketing...]

    Nice watch! I'm really impressed by the look of that black on black bracelet. I'm surprised at the packaging, that was the first thing I noticed before reading what you had written. That is just not the way to sell/package $500 plus watches. Casio are you reading!?!?

    Enjoy the watch, it looks much better than Casio's promo shots. Congrats Danger!

    Did you order that from leisurepro? I would have thought it would have at least come in a tin or something nice as well. does the model number on the box match the watch? sometimes I have bought watches and they gave me the wrong box. Would you mind getting some wrist pics when you get your digital camera online? I love that watch, and its on the short list.

    Yeah, some more photos with some wrist shots if possible.

    As per usual, it's often hard to judge a watch by its official pics.

    it seams that casio does not care too much for the us market as the majority of our watches come in the el cheapo cardboard box most of the japan Gs come in much nicer packaging. this bugs me

    True at least regarding the 25th Anniv. Dawn Black models. Gotta love those special boxes.
