    Mtg

    I've started to get interested in the MTGs recently, but haven't been able to convince myself to get one just yet. What are your thoughts on it?

    Is it worth the extra money over a GIEZ?

    Besides the material, what are the major differences between an MT-G and a GIEZ?

    Which model should I go for?

    (+) great look, good for daytime
    (-) crappy lume, insufficient for nightime

    Re: Mtg

    If you like MTG's look over the Giez look, that's reason number one. Big features on MTG over Giez is Countdown Timer and stainless steel bracelt. The Giez is the only screwback with Atomic/Solar capabiliy and uses a very comfortable rubber strap instead of resin.

    Here are the youtube reviews of both....

    Here's an article Sjors asked me to write on the MTG on his excellent 50 G's website...

    Re: Mtg

    ill definitely go with the MTG. Classy yet high tech.
    i luv the construction much better than the GIEZ.

    IMO, its a must have model if u want a all-analog. its just so beautiful !!!!

    But are there any major differences in movement between the GIEZ and MTG? How about MRG, then, for that matter?

    Re: Mtg

    from Dougie's pic comparison, i wanna say the dials on the GIEZ is a little bit tad bigger than in MTG. and i think GIEZ uses a technology called "5-motor" which i cant explain it very well. i just prefer the all steel than resin/rubber construction when it comes to all-analog.

    the MRG however is a G with its own class. DLC coating, expensive and top of the food chain. it never arrived to the US and the only place to get the MRG is Japan.
    i think it cost like >$800 or something like that. the only dude i know that has a MRG is MRG-1000.
