    Except for Tough Movement in MT-G1500, both ana-digis have the same features in every other respect: 60' Timer, 1/100" 24 hr Chrono, 29 Zones/48 Cities World Time, 5 Alarms, Lume, LED, Solar Power and Atomic Timekeeping.

    Apparently, the Tough Movement feature in MT-G1500 rockets its price to $500, compared to $250-300 for GW2500.

    I think the MT-G1500 has a different use for the sub-dial at 3. It won't display a third time zone, IIRC.

    MTG1500-1A - G-Shock - Timepiece - Products - CASIO

    Real drawback. Because the 2500 will give you two time zones at any time plus a third function on the digital.

    Difference between GW1500 and GW2500 is indeed just the atomic and the price.

    Both have atomic timekeeping. Check:

    Sorry for the confusion of which I was part. Those model numbers aren't easy. The OP never asked for the MTG1500, as you presumed. He asked for the G1500. I mistakenly added the W. The G1500 doesn't have the atomic feature. The MTG does, as you rightly say, but I didn't mean that one.
