    Hi G friends.

    Mechanics is not the wife of the mechanic, in Italian it is said when there is no content of mechanical components... This is "Plastotecnica", simulation of advanced technology.

    The mechanics is this:

    So now you're saying the 'State of the Art' GWR-B is simulated tech?

    It's much more advanced than the steel MRG posted...

    Casio must increase volume and reduce the cost because Casio is a business company.
    I'm sure the cost of last masters is lower than previous editions, in particular Mtg, GPW - >GWR, GWG-> NEW Mudmaster...
    The retail price is the demonstration, if you reduce the price you have reduced the cost to enlarge the production and save or increase the margin.
    The carbon core without the rear cover costs surely 40% less than the central body with a machined cover.
    You can find some accessories for cars and motorcycles, made in polyurethane or glass fiber with a thin layer of carbon fiber, Technology dresses little..

    And put in the market in the same time the top GWR and the poor GA-2000, 700 dollars and 120, with the same technology, Carbon Core, is a strategic failure....

    You said this model was a failure before anyone even received it.
    You constantly put it down but I'm yet to see anyone who actually owns one to be dissatisfied.
    In fact the only person who acted negatively was you when you purchased the much cheaper lower end model.

    Seems you like to tell people that their latest G purchase is rubbish and overpriced while gushing over your rather expensive MTGs made with very old basic materials.

    Good luck with that...

    Edit: Is there an ignore feature on this forum?

    Edit: Apologies to all other forum users. I've found and used the ignore feature so won't be responding to any more negativity aired by this particular member.

    I simply said that the product, intended as clockwork, is depleted, I myself paid 1000 euro a Rangeman technically equal to another priced 600 euros, to have a different color.. For me the concept of watch is associated with mechanics and technology, then hardware. In the GWR I find nothing more valuable than a Suunto with a reinforced plastic case. Suunto, I do not buy it for mechanics and not for the software. Fortunately not everyone is like me, Casio could close the Advanced Research Center.
    Enjoy your jewel...

    Oh you two. Always going at it with the GWR vs. MTG battles. Why not just be content that Casio is making both lines, as well as more affordable options like the GST and GA-2000. They know they can't please everybody, but they sure do try.

    Exactly. There's plenty of watches I see on this forum that I'm not a fan of but I don't go chasing every thread banging on about how bad they are or telling happy owners they just got shafted by Casio and their marketing

    For the record I also like the MTG, just not as much as the old design.
    Do you see me in every MTG thread calling it a failure?
