    Ha ha Robert,

    You were just in time. Another 0.75 second and it would have been 0:00'00" again :-D Nice shot! Actually I started my stopwatches a few months ago when the 1000 hour topic started. Somehow they are still running...

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Hello RobertRock,
    From memory I once left my topwatch on for about 20 odd hours. This takes the cake!

    I remember this model was launched with some tie-in to the Dakar rally. I think the CDT (or stowatch?) would be a usefull redundancy for those guys racing accross the endless deserts.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Actually I stopped it way before the 1000 hr mark so I would be awake. It would have been about 4am.:-D

    Interesting thoughts guys... Im TOTALLY intrigued by the dual stop watch... anyone know the real use for two? I was thinking that for multi sport activities I could have one timing the WHOLE event and one timing the parts...

    Any other thoughts?

    I hope in a day, Casio can add a "mission time timer" as the Omega X-33 I think it will be a killer-function for many purpose in a next generation of G-shock

    Hi Schirra,

    Actually there are models with a mission timer. The G-Cool models G-000 and G-004 have a "Schedual Timer", which can be seen as an advanced alarm function. You have 100 memory places, which can be used to several functions, so you can use it for 100 events (it's not a stopwatch function though, but some kind of count down function without countdown, maybe something you mean in your post).





    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Hi Sjors, the function you mean are very interesting functions, very useful I think.

    :thanks

    I don't like too much the G-cool series, and I hope in a next Mudman they can add something similar.
    The X-33 mission elapsed time is a little bit different, it's a chrono with a very long function time, and work togheter a special kind of alarm (separates of the "normal alarm") that is call Missin Time Alarm.
    I think is something different form the features of the G-Cool.

    In the pictures you can see that I have a MT of: 49 days /13 Hours /53 minutes/ and 45 seconds

    :thanks

    Hi Schirra,

    I have seen that X-33 watch in your picture on several NASA pictures (then not knowing what it was). A stopwatch that counts many days. Pretty cool, also is it's design.

    I also saw a lot of analog models with a black dial and a star like desing on it. Do you know what that model is?

    I'm actually also not too fond of the G-Cool series (except of the Pininfarina models). They were actually designed for Italian Fashion shows.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Sjors, The x-33 is called the "mars watch" it is the "new" speedmaster" for the next astronauts genenration, but is only useful inside the orbiter, of course.
    Omega have developed this watch in the early nineties in cooperation with cosmonauts and astronauts and have a lot of feature developed for astronauts purpose, for example the alarm is over 80db an is very loud, good if you are in that busy and noised environment of the ISS (or my house, when mi girlfriend shout like a burglar to call me when I spend my nights around my watches...)



    I haven't see the model of analog watch that you mean... probably you can post a picture?
