    Question GW-810D or MTG-930 - Which one to keep...?

    I thought I'd ask the audience on this one:

    Right now I have two similar G Shocks in my possession: the GW-810D and the MTG-930,

    So ever since I gave my old man my GW-M850 as a present like about a year and bit ago, it's been firmly planted on his wrist as his daily...even the resin has gotten 'shiny' I showed him my GW-810D a little while later and he's been interested because he likes the look of the stainless steel bracelet :)
    So recently I got hold of an MTG-930, which I find very similar to the GW-810D, I will give one of these Gs to the old man...question is which one do I keep, which one do I gift?

    Ok, so at the moment, I keep my GW-810D as my Swim-watch of choice, as the stainless steel wards off the smell of chlorine better than resin counterparts...and because it's a bracelet, I can take it off and hang it on the peg in the changing room when changing instead of having to do up a strap (yeah I know, a super lazy reason )
    But anyway, the feel of the watches are virtually identical, that's probably because the stainless steel bracelet is pretty identical on both watches, sizes are almost the same...both are solar/atomic, which one would you wear?

    In favour of the GW-810D:
    -Same module as the GW-9000 Mudman
    -Multiband 5 (not that it really makes a difference here)
    -Countdown timer! (not present on the MTG)

    In favour of the MTG:
    -Nice large LCD on a positive display
    -a unique time stamp feature
    -it's a MT-G! cool! I don't have an MT-G! (actually it's a GW-500 too)

    In my opinion, give the positive display to the old man. He will have a hard time reading the negative display.

    GW-810 all the way. The timer alone gives it a huge edge over the MTG-930 and it also wears much more comfortable and significant smaller.

    OK, that's GW-810D 4- 0 MTG-930! looking unanimous...

    Thanks for all your inputs :)

    I have been inclined towards keeping the GW-810D as well, precisely for the reason GShockme mentioned...the larger positive LCD and the fact that I find the negative LCDs ok to read...

    And the countdown timer, I find very useful in the kitchen... :)

    Nobody for the MTG then?
