    Re: Mrg 8000

    thats a very nice looking chrono, though it has two major drawbacks:

    1. still no H3 lume
    2. price is just ridiculous

    Re: Mrg 8000

    besides the DLC coating, the metal is super hardened?

    OT: is there any "Made in Japan" watch that has tritium lume?

    none that I would be aware of and I'm pretty sure to know all brands which uses H3 vials. its really a shame - the best illumination system on the market and the knowhow and craftmanship of a company like casio, together could make a whole new line of watches never been available before....

    Agree, the price pitches it into territories normally inhabited by entry level swiss auto's. Cool watch, tho'.

    Re: Mrg 8000

    I like the fact that it's thinner and therefore more dressier than all of the MR-Gs out there currently and would have seriously considered one, but $2k is just waaaaaay too much money for a G-shock, and the build quality they usually have. Seiko already has it bad with their Grand Seikos and people turning their noses up at them, and Grand Seikos are built 100 times better than any Casio, and most Swiss watches for that matter. But this MRG8000 one really takes the cake. I did see some lines here and there alluding to an effort to do a better finishing job on the watch, but it's not likely beyond what Seiko and Citizen can do on their budget watches.

    Can't say I care for these dark gunmetal finishes either they keep cranking out on their flagship MR-Gs, on the higher end, most people would prefer to see some sparkle and flash on their watch. If Casio's going to try and compete at the higher level, they really ought to try cranking out a nice highly polished/brushed titanium or SS piece.

    No, but do you honestly think the MRG8000 is going to have the finish quality of an Omega, given it's priced as much as an Omega? The watch doesn't look very different from the MRG7500 as it stands.

    For all that you get on this Casio G-Shock, I would consider it a better buy than paying a higher premium for an Omega or Rolex branding. Would you subject either Omega or Rolex to the same beating as the G_shock can take and still be assured that it would come out running? JMO
