    FISH ON!!! Got my 1st MRG-100T on Ebay

    Very happy here, won a bid on a titanium MRG-100 (MRG-100Tmodel). It should fit my 7” wrist per seller and based on number of links, we’llsee. Supposedly, EL backlight doesn’t function but I am hoping a newbattery, compressed air in case and/or acouple of solid nondestructive “whacks” does to get it working. If those don’twork, I’m accepting ideas on how to fix it. If all else fails, I’ll live withit for $61 US. Regardless, big smile on my face anticipating 1stMR-G.

    We call that "percussive maintenance" round here.

    Congrats! It could be its not making a good contact, that's why the EL doesn't work.

    Regardless, that's a good price for a vintage MRG. These things are well made and they are hack of a watch for the price. :)

    Congrats on your first! I hope you figure out the light and that the wrist measurement is close enough so it fits well. I wonder why the ebay description mentioned stainless steel? Hopefully they didn't put a SS 100 bracelet on it?

    The 100 is one of the smaller G's around but the digits are surprisingly big and I think the crystal makes it very legible. It's also bit taller than some G's. You can look into titanium polishing options if you want to try and pretty it up the finish. So far on my old MRG's I've only tried some fine brushing with a titanium pad. Keep us updated on how things go!
