    Just got a new G-Shock

    Hello,

    As I have come back into the world of G's, I celebrated by finding and buying a watch I have been looking for brand new. It is a MTG-520

    This is a blue dialed ani-digi watch with a interesting form of illumination called the Neon Illuminator

    This particular model of watch was sold in stores like Wal-Mart and Costco for about a year (in the case of Wal-Mart, it lasted for about 3 months and they vanished) in 2003

    I had had one about 4 years ago and sold it to buy another watch. I missed it and looked for another but only found used ones on the Bay. I had looked on the Bay only last week and found only a few used ones in a eBay store and a black dialed one in the UK that when all was added up was close to $140.

    I was in a junk shop today (close out market) and under a bunch of things I found a sealed package that said G-Shock on the side, looking closer I found it was a MTG-520 and I got it for $35+ tax. It was the only one the store owner had and had ever seen (it is a close out store) It was brand new in the sealed blister pack so that when I opened it, I was the first one to touch it since the factory worker who placed it in the package.

    It was a real shame to open it up but I had wanted one new for a while and wanted to wear it. the battery still works but the neon is not so bright. But since the watch was sold last in 2003, the battery is about 5 years old and due for a change.

    This is the kind of package the watch came in

    This picture is curtousy of Sjors, as he takes a better pic then I could ever and shows what the blister pack and watch look like (as of this minute, mine is no longer in this package) . Thanks Sjors

    MTG stands for metal twisted G. What does MR-G stand for though?

    Hi Leon,

    Congratulations, Great find. I haven't seen these for sale for a long time. They were for around $40.- for sale for a while in the US, but I bought the red version for quite a lot more. I think those were around $125.- or more. The backlight of those are very cool. I still have one unopened in the blister if I'm right.

    Cheers,

    Sjors
